CRITICAL COMMENTS

Mites

(Tetranychus spp.)

(Mite Flare Suppression)

Apply in Stage II to reduce the rate of mite build-up

associated

with the use of synthetic pyrethroids. Where

cotton bollworm and native budworm are present, tank mix

with the recommended rate

of a synthetic pyrethroid.

Mites

(Tetranychus spp.)

Cotton Aphids

(Aphis gossypii)

Spray timing is important. For best results use as a

preventative spray at the first sign of mite and cotton

aphid infestation. Repeat. applications at

5-10

intervals as long as mite and cotton aphid activity

continues or as indicated by mite and cotton aphid

population

Cotton Bollworm

(Helicoverpa armigera)

Native Budworm

(Helicoverpa puncligera)

[Ovicidal Controll

T iming is important. For best results apply at or just

prior to the anticipated time of hatching of

Helicoverpa eggs as indicated by

egg levels or

scouting.

Cotton Bollworm

(Helicoverpa armigera)

Native Budworm

(Helicoverpa puncligera)

3-4 L

Apply as a protective spray program on a

5-10

schedule against Helicoverpa larvae or as indicated by

field scouting.

early larval stages are easier to control,

fields should be carefully

checked at regular intervals for

Helicoverpa eggs and larvae, and sprays applied as far as

possible against very small and small larvae. Continue

spraying as long as Heticoverpe activity is in evidence. These

applications will also control mites and cotton aphids. Use

the higher dosage when larger larvae are present

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE OR IN ANY MANNER, CONTRARY TO THIS

LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

WITHHOLDING PERIOD: DO NOT HARVEST FOR 4 WEEKS AFTER APPLICATION.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

PROCHEM DUO is a broad spectrum foliar organophosphate insecticide which has both

contact and stomach action. PROCHEM DUO is non-systemic and so requires good

coverage of the plant, however, it shows excellent translaminar action and is rapidly taken up

by the plant.

Mixing

PROCHEM DUO can be applied undiluted by ultra low volume spray equipment or can be

mixed with water for low volume application.

For low volume application, add the required amount of PROCHEM DUO slowly to the partly

filled spray tank at the rate indicated with the agitator or by-pass in operation. Continue filling

the tank to the final spray volume.

Method of

Application

For low volume spraying: Apply by ground rig or aircraft fitted with nozzles or rotary atomiser,

using a minimum water volume of 50 L/ha by ground rig or 20 L/ha by aircraft.

For ultra low

olume (UL V)

praying: Apply by aircraft fitted with rotary atomiser or other

suitable equipment either alone or in a mixture with other ULV insecticides as recommended,

using a minimum of 1 L/ha.

Compatibility

PROCHEM DUO is compatible with Electra" 225 Insecticide, and some ULV formulations of

synthetic pyrethroids recommended for use on cotton.

As formulations of other manufacturer's products are beyond the control of ChemAg Pty Ltd,

all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

Insecticide resistance warning

GROUP

1B

I

INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management PROCHEM DUO is a Group 1B insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to PROCHEM DUO 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 PROCHEM DUO and

other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of PROCHEM DUO on

resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is

difficult to detect prior to use, ChemAg Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may

result from failure of PROCHEM DUO to control resistant insects.

PROCHEM DUO may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further

information contact your supplier or local agricultural department agronomist.

PRECAUTIONS

DO NOT spray directly on humans. DO NOT contaminate food or feed with this product.

Re-entry Period

DO NOT enter treated areas without protective clothing for 34 days after spraying.

PROTECTION ,OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

PROCHEM DUO may sometimes cause light to moderate injury to some older leaves,

particularly when at rates above 3 L/ha and minimum recommended spray intervals. Cotton in

the first weeks of flowering, generally 40-80 days after planting, is most likely to be affected.

Later in the season PROCHEM DUO is likely to cause reddening of the foliage and advance

the maturity of the crops. None of the above influences is likely to adversely influence yield or

fibre quality.

The application of PROCHEM DUO as an ultra low volume spray will reduce the likelihood of

leaf injury from early season sprays.

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause spray

to drift onto nearby plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures (especially lucerne, sorghum or

deciduous fruit trees).

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Highly toxic to fish. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or

used containers. This product has an offensive odour which may detrimentally affect air

quality.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

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

Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsing’s to the 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 500mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose

clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers should not be

burnt.

For refillable containers: Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves and

return to the point of supply for refill or storage.

Major Health Hazards:

danger of cumulative effects, harmful by inhalation, in contact with skin, and if swallowed,

irritating to eyes and skin, if aspirated, may cause lung damage. Signs and symptoms associated with mild exposures

to organophosphate and carbamate pesticides include: headache, fatigue, dizziness, loss of appetite with nausea,

stomach cramps and diarrhoea; blurred vision associated with excessive tearing; contracted pupils of the eye;

excessive sweating and salivation; slowed heartbeat, often fewer than 50 per minute; rippling of surface muscles just

under the skin. These symptoms may be mistaken for those of flu, heat stroke or heat exhaustion, or upset stomach.

Moderately severe organophosphate and carbamate insecticide poisoning cases exhibit all the signs and symptoms

found in mild poisonings, but in addition, the victim: is unable to walk; often complains of chest discomfort and

tightness; exhibits marked constriction of the pupils (pinpoint pupils); exhibits muscle twitching; has involuntary

urination and bowel movement. Severe poisonings are indicated by incontinence, unconsciousness and seizures.
