APPLICATION

Dilute Spraying (Apples)

Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of

run-off and matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up and operate the

sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy. Apply

sufficient water to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive

run-off.

in the Directions For Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point

of run-off. The required dilute spray volume will change and the sprayer

set up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.

Concentrate Spraying (Apples)

Use a sprayer designed and set up for the concentrate spraying (that is a

sprayer which applies water volumes less than those required to reach the

point of run-off) and matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up and

operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy

using your chosen water volume. Determine an appropriate dilute spray

volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to

calculate the concentrate mixing rate. The mixing rate for concentrate

spraying can then be calculated in the following way:

EXAMPLE ONLY

1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha.

2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha.

3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).

4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes

3 x10, that is 30 mL/100 L of concentrate spraying.

The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water, and the

sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows.

For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to

consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency

training and follow industry Best Practices.

Collar drench: Uptake of CUT-BACK is most efficient when it is applied to

soil which receives adequate water and where there is a high density of

feeder roots.Apply required amount of CUT-BACK in 0.5 to 2 litres of water

per tree onto the soil/trunk crack line evenly around the base of the trunk.

Where specific rates per tree are not given, the application rate per tree is

determined by dividing the application rate per ha by the number of trees

per ha. The volume of diluted drench required for even application without

runoff will vary with the size of the tree and with soil type and moisture

content. Use the higher volume on large trees. Ensure that trees are

adequately irrigated following treatment under dry conditions. Individual

trees which are smaller than average should be left untreated or given a

proportionally smaller dose of CUT-BACK.

Trickle point: Apply in 200 to 300 mL water per tree beneath each trickle or

dripper

point.

Follow

application

with

short

period

irrigation.

Alternatively, the required amount of CUT-BACK can be applied through

the trickle irrigation system. Equal distribution of water between trees is

essential for this method to give a uniform effect.

RETREATMENT

In some cases, control of growth may persist for more than one year.

Retreat trees when normal growth resumes. Use the interval between the

first treatment and resumption of normal growth as a guide for retreatment

in subsequent seasons.

COMPATIBILITY

CUT-BACK is compatible with any one of the following products: Nimrod

Omite

, Aphidex

or mancozeb. However, mixing CUT-BACK with more than

any one of these products may give unpredictable results or may result in

crop damage. If carbaryl is used as a thinning spray on apples, allow 21

days before application of CUT-BACK.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK, WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND

ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or

used containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

FARMOZ

CUT-BACK

systemic

growth

regulator

that

reduces

internode lengths of new shoots and causes earlier formation of terminal

buds. Use of CUT-BACK should begin only when trees are nearing their

optimum size. It is most suited to intensively managed orchards where

trees are near to filling their allocated space and growth control is a prime

requirement. It is not suitable for old or unhealthy trees. If a tree is under

stress, CUT-BACK should NOT be used.

Stress can be caused by: moisture shortage due to lack of rain, or

inadequate irrigation, high temperature, salinity, moisture excess due to

high water table, flooding or inappropriate irrigation, severe or successive

frosts, poor fertility caused by imbalance of major or minor nutrients,

diseases, insects, inappropriate herbicide use, mechanical damage.

Tree management

Treated trees may produce heavier crops and require a higher level of

fertilizer application. Ensure that treated trees are not over-watered or

subjected to drought stress. In some instances, treated trees may set

excess fruit and careful attention should be given to thinning operations.

When replanting a treated orchard, at least three years should elapse

since the last application of CUT-BACK. In orchards which have been

treated with collar drenches of CUT-BACK, fresh soil should be provided to

allow tree establishment and growth. Remove treated soil. An alternative

is to avoid original tree holes, and place young trees as far as practicable

from the treated soil (minimum 1.5 m).Where young trees are required to

be planted in an established orchard which has been treated with collar

drenches of CUT-BACK, remove treated soil and replace with fresh soil.

MIXING

Foliar sprays: Half-fill tank with clean water, add the required quantity of

CUT-BACK and Wetspray 600 and agitate during the completion of filling.

Frequent or constant agitation of the spray mixture is recommended. Wash

out spray tank thoroughly after use.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Restraints:

DO NOT use on trees of low vigour or under stress (see General Instructions).

DO NOT use in orchards underplanted with any other crops.

DO NOT apply to young trees which have recently been interplanted in orchards and which are required to

make vigorous growth.

DO NOT apply by aircraft.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

FARMOZ CUT-BACK

is a systemic growth regulator that reduces internode lengths of

begin only when trees are nearing their optimum size. It is most suited to intensively

managed orchards where trees are near to filling their allocated space and growth

control is a prime requirement. It is not suitable for old or unhealthy trees. If a tree is

Tree management

Treated trees may produce heavier crops and require a higher level of fertilizer

application. Ensure that treated trees are not over-watered or subjected to drought

stress. In some instances, treated trees may set excess fruit and careful attention

should be given to thinning operations. When replanting a treated orchard, at least

three years should elapse since the last application of CUT-BACK. In orchards which

have been treated with collar drenches of CUT-BACK, fresh soil should be provided to

allow tree establishment and growth. Remove treated soil. An alternative is to avoid

original tree holes, and place young trees as far as practicable from the treated soil

(minimum 1.5 m).

Where young trees are required to be planted in an established orchard which has

been treated with collar drenches of CUT-BACK, remove treated soil and replace with

fresh soil.

MIXING

Foliar sprays:

Half-fill tank with clean water, add the required quantity of CUT-BACK

and Wetspray 600 and agitate during the completion of filling. Frequent or constant

agitation of the spray mixture is recommended. Wash out spray tank thoroughly after

use.

Collar drench: Mix required quantity of CUT-BACK with recommended volume of water.

Periodic agitation may be necessary to prevent settling.

APPLICATION

Dilute Spraying (Apples)

Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of run-off and matched

to the crop being sprayed. Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage

throughout the crop canopy. Apply sufficient water to cover the crop to the point of run-off.

Avoid excessive run-off. The required water volume may be determined by applying different

test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or expert advice.

Add the amount of product specified in the Directions For Use table for each 100 L of water.

Spray to the point of run-off. The required dilute spray volume will change and the sprayer set

up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.

Concentrate Spraying (Apples)

Use a sprayer designed and set up for the concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which

applies water volumes less than those required to reach the point of run-off) and

matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even

coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen water volume. Determine an

appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This

is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate. The mixing rate for concentrate

spraying can then be calculated in the following way:

EXAMPLE ONLY

1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha.

2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha.

3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).

4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x10, that is

30 mL/100 L of concentrate spraying.

The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water, and the sprayer set up

and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows.

For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant

industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry

Best Practices.

Collar drench: Uptake of CUT-BACK is most efficient when it is applied to soil which

receives adequate water and where there is a high density of feeder roots.

Apply required amount of CUT-BACK in 0.5 to 2 litres of water per tree onto the soil/trunk

crack line evenly around the base of the trunk.

Where specific rates per tree are not given, the application rate per tree is determined

by dividing the application rate per ha by the number of trees per ha. The volume of

diluted drench required for even application without runoff will vary with the size of the

tree and with soil type and moisture content.

Use the higher volume on large trees. Ensure that trees are adequately irrigated

following treatment under dry conditions. Individual trees which are smaller than

average should be left untreated or given a proportionally smaller dose of CUT-BACK.

Trickle point:

Apply in 200 to 300 mL water per tree beneath each trickle or dripper

point. Follow application with a short period of irrigation.

Alternatively, the required amount of CUT-BACK can be applied through the trickle

irrigation system. Equal distribution of water between trees is essential for this method

to give a uniform effect.

RETREATMENT

In some cases, control of growth may persist for more than one year. Retreat trees

when normal growth resumes. Use the interval between the first treatment and

resumption of normal growth as a guide for retreatment in subsequent seasons.

COMPATIBILITY

CUT-BACK is compatible with any one of the following products: Nimrod

, Omite

Aphidex

or mancozeb. However, mixing CUT-BACK with more than any one of these

products may give unpredictable results or may result in crop damage. If carbaryl is

used as a thinning spray on apples, allow 21 days before application of CUT-BACK.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK, WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used

containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a dry, cool, well-ventilated area out of direct

sunlight. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings

to spray tank. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace

cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not

recycling, break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority

landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit

specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable

vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.

The effects of CUT-BACK on flowering and growth may persist for

more than one season.

Sandy Soils: Postpone retreatment until after the harvest following

resumption of normal growth. Use the interval between the first

treatment and resumption of normal growth as a guide to

retreatment frequency in subsequent years.

Clays and Red Volcanic Soils:

Retreat each season. If reduction of growth increases progressively

from season to season postpone treatment until after the harvest

following the resumption of normal growth.

Dilute Spraying:

50 mL to 100 mL/100 L.

Add 18 mL Wetspray

per 100 L water in final

spray volume

Concentrate Spraying:

Refer to the Mixing/

Application Section.

Apply by dilute spraying equipment. Apply the same total amount of

product to the target crop whether applying this product by dilute or

concentrate spraying methods. Apply in a sequential spray

programme commencing 28 days after full bloom on Red Delicious

or 35 days after full bloom on Granny Smith. Use lower rate on less

vigorous trees. Apply subsequent sprays at the lower rate at

intervals of 21 days for as long as growth control is required. Activity

results from uptake of chemical by young green stem tissue.

DO NOT apply more than 4 L/ha per season.

CAUTION: If using CARBARYL as a chemical thinning agent, plan to

allow 21 days between application of carbaryl and CUT-BACK.

recommended for early maturing cultivars.

Divide rate per ha by the number of trees per ha to determine the

rate per tree. Use high rate on medium and heavy soil types.

RETREATMENT: Retreat trees with 2 L/ha (Trickle) or with 2 or 3 L/ha

(Collar drench) in subsequent season. Rates of application for

retreatment may be reduced if a lesser degree of growth control is

desired. On light soils, retreat when normal growth resumes. Use the

low rate for retreatment of low vigorous varieties in cool districts.
