Insecticide Resistance Warning

GROUP

16A

INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management, Mimic is a Group 16A insecticide. Some naturally

occurring insect biotypes resistant to Mimic and other Group 16A insecticides may exist

through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can

eventually dominate the insect population if Mimic and other Group 16A insecticides are

used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Mimic on resistant individuals could be significantly

reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Dow

AgroSciences Australia Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the

failure of Mimic to control resistant insects. Mimic may be subject to specific resistance

management

strategies.

your

local

supplier,

AgroSciences representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

Mixing/Application

Add the required number of water soluble sachets direct to the vat when about one third

full with agitators in motion. Add other products after Mimic has dispersed. If premixing,

use at least 2 litres of water for each sachet. Each sachet contains 86 g. For dilute

spraying, use 1 sachet for each 1000 L of water.

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. 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

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.

Box label

Mimic 700 WP

Approved label 12-05-2003

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: For example 1500 L/ha

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

The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (ie 1500 L

500 L = 3)

As the dilute label rate is 8.6 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 8.6,

that is 25.8 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.

Do not use a concentrate rate higher than that specified in the Critical Comments.

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

industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry

Best Practices.

BCF: Bioconcentration Factor - a measure for the

characterization of the accumulation of a chemical in an

organism. It is defined as the concentration of a chemical in

an organism (plants, microorganisms, animals) divided by

the concentration in a reference compartment (e.g. food,

surrounding water).

BOD: Biochemical oxygen demand. The amount of

oxygen required by aerobic microorganisms to decompose

the organic matter in a sample of water, such as that

polluted by sewage. It is used as a measure of the degree

of water pollution. Also called biological oxygen demand.

Dow AgroSciences Industrial Hygiene Guideline: An

internal company standard based on an 8 hour TWA.

EC

50

: median effective concentration. Statistically derived

concentration of a substance in an environmental medium

expected to produce a certain effect in 50% of test

organisms in a given population under a defined set of

conditions.

Explosive Limits: The range of concentrations (% by

volume in air) of a flammable gas or vapour that can result

in an explosion for ignition in a confined space.

K

oc

: the organic carbon partition coefficient (mL soil water

/g organic carbon).

K

ow

: See P

LC

50

: Lethal Concentration 50%. A concentration of

chemical in air or water that will kill 50% of the test

organisms.

LD

50

: Lethal Dose-50%. The doses of a chemical that will

kill 50% of the test animals receiving it.

NIOSH: American national Institute of Occupational Safety

and Health, a federal agency which conducts research on

occupational safety and health questions and recommends

new standards.

NOHSC: National Occupational Health and Safety

Commission of Australia now the Office of the Australian

Safety and Compensation Council.

OASCC: Office of the Australian Safety & Compensation

Commission.

OSHA: American Occupational Safety and Health

Administration.

PEL: Permissible Exposure Level, a maximum allowable

exposure level by law.

pH: Measure of how acidic or alkaline a material is using a

1 - 14 scale. pH 1 is strongly acidic and pH 14 strongly

alkaline.

Polymerisation: a chemical reaction in which small

molecules (monomers) combine to form much larger

molecules (polymers). A hazardous polymerisation

reaction is one that occurs at a fast rate and releases large

amounts of energy.

P

ow

: The octanol-water partition coefficient is the ratio of

the concentration of a chemical in octanol and in water at

equilibrium and at a specified temperature. Octanol is an

organic solvent that is used as a surrogate for natural

organic matter. This parameter is used in many

environmental studies to help determine the fate of

chemicals in the environment.

STEL: Short-Term Exposure Limit. A term used to

indicate the maximum average concentration allowed for a

continuous 15 minute exposure period.

TLV: Threshold Limit Value, an exposure limit set by a

competent authority

TWA: Time Weighted Average. The average

concentration of a chemical in air over the total exposure

time - usually an 8-hour workday.
