Trade Advice:

General

instructions:

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Before opening, carefully read Directions For Use, Precautionary Statements,

Safety Directions and First Aid Instructions.

This preparation may not give the desired control where a resistance to

DIMETHOATE occurs.

Where a rate per hectare is shown, this takes priority over the rate per 100L

instruction.

MIXING/APPLICATION

*Spray Volume

Rates per 100L are intended for higher volume applications i.e. up to a point of run-

off using medium to coarse droplets and these need to be adjusted if low volume

application is used. The rate shown per hectare provides a guide to the dose of

product required for a fully developed crop canopy.

Dilute Spraying

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.

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 100L 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

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 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 1500L/ha

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

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

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

that is 30mL/100L of concentrate spray.

The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100L 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. For concentrate application- do not use a concentrate

spray rate greater than 5 times the dilute spraying rate.

Precautions:

RE-ENTRY AND REHANDLING

Avocado, mango trees:

DO NOT allow entry into treated areas for 9 days for fruit

thinning and for 2 days for hand harvesting. DO NOT allow entry into treated areas for

hand pruning, irrigation, orchard maintenance, weeding, scouting, or transplanting

until the spray has dried. If prior entry is required, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the

neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and gloves. Clothing must be laundered after

each day’s use.

Citrus trees:

DO NOT allow entry into treated areas for 4 days for hand harvesting.

DO NO

T allow entry into treated areas for hand pruning, orchard maintenance,

weeding, baiting/trapping, scouting, or transplanting until the spray has dried. If prior

entry is required, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent

clothing) and gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.

Ornamentals—cut flowers or nursery plant:

DO NOT allow entry into treated areas

for container moving, hand harvesting of cut flowers, hand irrigation, pinching, hand

pruning, scouting, transplanting, and hand weeding until the spray has dried. If prior

entry is required, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent

clothing) and gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.

Ornamental trees farm and forest trees:

DO NOT allow entry into treated areas for

9 days for hand set irrigation. DO NOT allow entry into treated areas for 7 days for

hand harvesting and for 1 day for hand pruning, shaping or scouting. DO NOT allow

entry into treated areas for container moving,

grading/tagging, transplanting or

weeding until the spray has dried. If prior entry is required, wear cotton overalls

buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and gloves. Clothing must be

laundered after each day’s use.

Glasshouses and other confined areas:

DO NOT re-enter until spray deposits have

dried and areas has been thoroughly ventilated.

All other crops (litchi (lychee), blackberries, raspberries, vegetables, grain

legumes, cereals, cotton, oilseeds, forage crops, tobacco, ornamental shrubs,

duboisia, oil tea tree):

DO NOT enter treated areas until the spray has dried, unless

wearing cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and

chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day's use.

Post-harvest dipping of fruit and vegetables, and pre-plant dipping of plants:

DO NOT handle treated fruit, vegetable or plant until the product solution has dried. If
