CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER

APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

WITHHOLDING PERIOD: DO NOT harvest for 1 day after application.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Apply when trees are in good condition 7-10 days after rain or irrigation.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

Pour the required amount of water into the mixing tank then add the VICOL

SUMMER OIL and stir well. When using in combination with other pesticides, mix

the pesticide first according to the manufacturers instructions, then add VICOL

SUMMER OIL last. Maintain continuous agitation while spraying .

SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS

Refer to the table for recommended spray volumes. These are based on mature,

four metre high orange trees (250 single planted

500 double planted trees per

hectare). Volumes

Bold typeface mean that the same spray may need to

applied twice in one season. Volumes in normal type face indicate that one spray

per season is generally sufficient. Where a range

values

given, the lower

value is suitable for low to medium infestations in the presence

good natural

enemy activity. The higher value is for heavy infestations, and may also

more

suitable for the production of fresh fruit. Applications for the control

soft scales,

scales and mealy bugs must be applied when the youngest stages

the pests

predominate. *Single season applications,

the first

two sprays, for

Greenhouse Thrips and Mealy bugs should be made post-harvest, initially

Published on: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 This update on the African swine fever (ASF) outbreaks in the EU demonstrated that out of all tested wild boar found dead, the proportion of positive samples peaked in winter and summer.

Wild boar density was the most influential risk factor for the occurrence of ASF in wild boar. In th...
