Insecticide Resistance Warning

For insecticide resistance management, Tokuthion is a Group 1B

insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to

Tokuthion and other Group 1B insecticides may exist through

normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant

individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if

Tokuthion and other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly.

The effectiveness of Tokuthion on resistant individuals could be

significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is

difficult to detect prior to use, Arysta LifeScience accepts no liability

for any losses that may result from the failure of Tokuthion to

control resistant insects. Tokuthion may be subject to specific

resistance management strategies. For further information contact

your local supplier, Arysta LifeScience representative or local

agricultural department agronomist.

Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy for Banana

Weevil Borer in Bananas: Contact your local supplier, Arysta

LifeScience representative or local agricultural department

agronomist for details.

Export of Treated Produce

Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances do not exist

in all markets for edible produce treated with Tokuthion. If you

are growing edible produce for export, please check with Arysta

LifeScience for the latest information on MRLs and import

tolerances before using Tokuthion.

Mixing

Mix the required quantity of Tokuthion with water in the spray vat

while stirring or with agitators operating.

Application

Dilute Spraying (table grapes and pears)

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.

Baiting for Banana Weevil Borer

Set the baits from September to May at monthly intervals. Spray

the cut surfaces of the bait with 20 mL of the prepared spray

solution. Apply the spray once only to baits prepared from freshly

cut material.

Form baits by the following methods from the corm of recently

harvested stools only:

A

Cut a pointed cone with a desuckering gouge. Squirt the

chemical over the surfaces of the hole and loosely reinsert

the cone turned through 90°

B

Cut a single slot with a small axe and spray the cut surfaces

C

Horizontally cut open the corm, spray the surfaces and prop

open the cut to about 1 cm with a small rock

As well, recently fallen stools can be cut into blocks and one

surface of each block sprayed. That surface is placed on the ground.

Compatibility

Tokuthion is NOT compatible with Bayfidan

250 EC on table

grapes. Tokuthion is NOT compatible with Delan 750 SC.

Do not mix concentrates together but add each to the spray tank

separately. As formulations of other manufacturers' products are

beyond the control of Arysta LifeScience, all mixtures should be

tested prior to mixing commercial quantities. As changes in climatic

conditions can alter the sensitivity of plants to mixtures of sprays,

Arysta LifeScience cannot be responsible for the behaviour of

such mixtures.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND

ENVIRONMENT

Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or drains with the chemical

or used container.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area.

Do not store for prolonged periods in 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.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS

Product and spray are poisonous if absorbed by skin contact,

inhaled or swallowed. Repeated minor exposure may have a

cumulative poisoning effect. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and

clothing. Do not inhale spray mist. When preparing spray wear

elbow-length PVC gloves. After use and before eating, drinking

or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and

water. After each day's use, wash gloves and contaminated clothing.

FIRST AID

If swallowed, splashed on skin or in eyes, or inhaled, contact a

Poisons Information Centre (Phone Australia 131126) or a doctor

at once. Remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin

thoroughly. If swallowed, activated charcoal may be advised.

Give atropine if instructed.

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET

EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY

This product must be used strictly as directed, and in accordance

with all instructions appearing on the label and in other reference

material. So far as it is lawfully able to do so, Arysta LifeScience

failure to follow such directions and instructions.

of maximum weevil activity: (a) in spring (September to November) OR

(b) in late summer/autumn (February to April). Apply at the higher rate

where maximum residual control is required.

Use the lower rate where effective knockdown is required and a shorter

residual is acceptable or soil movement is likely to remove the soil

containing the chemical away from the base of the plant. Re-treat as

required. One application of Tokuthion Insecticide Spray at the higher

rate per year should be adequate for banana weevil borer control in

sub-tropical areas. Effective control of banana weevil borer is unlikely

unless treatment is accompanied by sound management practice to

ensure good plant hygiene. Plants should be regularly stripped of old

stems and unwanted suckers. Weeds and trash should be cleared from

surrounding soil.
