Trade Advice:

General Instructions:

Mixing

Fill tank 50 to 75% full then start agitation. Slowly pour granules into tank and maintain

agitation throughout spraying. DO NOT pre-mix PIRIMOR granules.

Application

If this product is applied when the temperature is less than 15C it is essential to have

thorough spray coverage for quick and total aphid control.

Fruit Crops - Tree and Vine Crops

Dilute Spraying:

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 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 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.

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) 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 1500 L/ha.

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

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

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

30 mL / 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 changed as the crop grows. For further information on

concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake

appropriate competency training and following industry Best Practices.

Compatibility

PIRIMOR WG may be mixed in the spray vat with any one of the following products: Agral

and Omite*. A mixture of PIRIMOR WG with more than one of these products or with any

other product may be ineffective or may cause serious damage. The use of such a mixture

is not recommended and would therefore be entirely at the user’s risk.

Resistance Warning:

Insecticide Resistance Warning

For insecticide resistance management PIRIMOR WG Aphicide is a Group 1A insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to PIRIMOR WG and other Group 1A

insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The

Page 3 of 4

resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if PIRIMOR WG or

other Group 1A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of PIRIMOR WG 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 PIRIMOR WG to control insects. PIRIMOR

WG may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information

contact your local supplier, Syngenta Crop Protection representative or local agricultural

department agronomist.

Resistance Management for Green Peach Aphid Control

Some Green Peach Aphids are resistant to all commonly used insecticides including

PIRIMOR WG. If resistance is known or suspected, DO NOT use PIRIMOR WG and seek

advice on resistance management. If there is no PIRIMOR WG resistance, use a maximum

of 2 non-consecutive aphid sprays per season. If PIRIMOR WG was used as the last aphid

spray for the season, DO NOT use it as the first aphid spray next season.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Animals and poultry should be kept away from orchards and other treated areas during the

horticultural spraying season.

Keep animals and poultry away from spray and treated areas for a minimum of 3 days.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

DO NOT apply under meteorological conditions (eg crosswinds less than 3 km/hr) or from

spraying equipment which could be expected to cause spray to drift onto adjacent areas,

particularly wetlands, waterbodies or watercourses.

Storage and

Disposal:

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well ventilated area out of direct sunlight.

Plastic containers

Triple rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to the mixing 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 deliver empty

packaging to an approved waste management facility. If an approved waste management

facility is not available bury the empty packaging 500 mm below the surface in a disposal

pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation

and tree roots, in compliance with Local, State or Territory government regulations. DO

NOT burn empty containers or product.

Lined cardboard boxes

Single rinse or shake remainder into spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on

site. Puncture and deliver empty packaging to an approved waste management facility. If

an approved waste management facility is not available bury the empty packaging 500 mm

below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of

waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant Local, State or

Territory government regulations. Do not burn empty containers or product.

practiced.

Where roses are grown in dense hedges

and IPM is used, spray only the upper half

of the hedge where the aphids are

attacking the buds. Allow the lower half of

the hedge to serve as a refuge for P.

persimilis. In such situations PIRIMOR WG

should NOT be mixed with a fungicide

which requires very careful coverage.

Note: Because of the wide range of crops

and pests encompassed under

Ornamentals, the phytotoxicity and efficacy

of this compound cannot be guaranteed

under all uses. Test the chemical for

phytotoxicity on a small area of crop before

Timing

Queensland only:

On seedling lucerne, treatment is

necessary when 1 or 2 aphids are

present per plant. Established lucerne

and medics (spring and summer) - spray

when there are 20 to 40 aphids per stem.

Spotted Alfalfa Aphid (NSW, Tas, SA, WA

only): Apply when aphids begin to build up

on stems and repeat as necessary.

Spotted Alfalfa Aphid and Pea Aphid (Vic

only): Seedling lucerne and medics - treat

when 1 to 2 aphids per plant are present.

Established lucerne and medics (spring

and summer) - spray when there are 20 to

40 aphids per stem.

Tasmania only:

A cold weather adapted species which may

be found at most times of the year.

Spraying should be carried out when

aphids begin to increase and be repeated

as necessary.

For the control of both the above lucerne

and medic pasture pests PIRIMOR WG

the recommended rate should be applied in

200 to 300 L of water/ha. Complete

coverage and penetration of the crop is

essential.

Blue Green Aphid

This aphid is cooler weather tolerant and

will be found at all times of the year.

Spraying should be carried out as aphids

are observed.

In some areas Spotted Alfalfa Aphid has

developed tolerance to pirimicarb and in

those areas PIRIMOR

will not give

satisfactory control. However, apparent

tolerance should not be confused with poor

application. Consult your local Syngenta or

Department of Agriculture representative

for local information.
