GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Mulch or mow flowering ground cover immediately before spraying of INSEGAR to minimise hazard to bee hive broods.

Mixing: Quarter fill the spray tank with water. Start agitation and slowly add the correct amount of product to the spray tank with the agitation system running. Continue

agitation while topping up the spray tank with water and while spraying.

Application: Apply by high volume (dilute) sprayer or by concentrate (up to 4 times) sprayer.

Dilute Spraying

For dilute spraying, apply to the point of runoff to ensure thorough coverage of foliage and fruit.

Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of runoff 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 runoff. Avoid excessive

runoff.

The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or advice.

Add the amount of product specified in the Directions for Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of runoff.

The required dilute spray volume will change and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed as the crop grows.

The following spray volumes are offered as a guide to proper spraying of average sized trees at conventional planting intervals.The same quantity of chemical per hectare

should be used when spraying by either the dilute or concentrate method.

Stage

800 to 1000 g

Full foliage

2500 to 3500 L

500 to 700 g

1000 to 1400 g

Concentrate Spraying

Use a sprayer designed and set up for concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies water volumes less than those required to reach the point of runoff) 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

Dilute spray volume as determined above, eg 2000 L

(ii)

Your chosen concentrate spray volume, eg 1000 L/ha

(iii) The concentration factor in this example is 2 X (ie 2000 L ÷ 1000 L = 2)

(iv) If the dilute label rate is 20 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 2 X 20, ie 40 g/100 L of concentrate spray.

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.

Compatibility: INSEGAR

WGcan be mixed with the following fungicides: Baycor*, Delan*, Innova

Mancozeb 750, Nustar*, Polyram*, Innova Iprodione, Rubigan*,

Systhane*, Thiovit Jet

, Topas

, and the following insecticides: Apollo*, Chlorpyrifos, Dipel, Omite*, Torque*.

is not recommended to mix this product with more than one of the above chemicals in the tank.

As formulations of other manufacturer’s products are beyond the

control of Syngenta Crop Protection, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

Insecticide Resistance Warning

For insecticide resistance management INSEGAR WG is a Group 7B insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to INSEGAR and other Group 7B

insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if INSEGAR or

other Group 7B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of INSEGAR on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant

individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Syngenta Crop Protection Pty Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of INSEGAR to control

resistant insects. INSEGAR may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Syngenta Crop Protection

representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS, ENVIRONMENT AND BEES: DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

DO NOT treat during bloom to prevent contamination of pollen and possible (but rare) effects on the brood of honey bees.

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT: INSEGAR is suitable for use in IPM programs.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL: Keep out of reach of children. Store in the closed, original container in a dry, cool, well ventilated area out of direct sunlight. Single rinse liner

before disposal. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Puncture or shred and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill 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.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS:

Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

Wash hands after use.

FIRST AID: If poisoning occurs contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre.

Phone 131 126.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Critical Comments

Commence application 7 to 10 days after full petal fall. Make 3 applications at 7 day intervals at the

20 g/100 L rate. Make a further application 7 days later at the 40 g/100 L rate. All subsequent

applications should be at the 40 g/100 L rate at 4 to 6 week intervals depending on moth activity.

Thorough coverage is essential. Apply the same total amount of product to the target crop whether

applying by dilute or concentrate spraying methods.

Pheromone traps may assist in timing of application.

INSEGAR will suppress San José Scale when used in a full season schedule against Codling Moth

and/or Light Brown Apple Moth.
