General Instructions:

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Relyon Alpha Duo 100 Insecticide is a contact and residual insecticide. It can be used as

a protective treatment when applied at regular intervals or as a knockdown treatment to

control existing infestations.

This product can be applied mixed either with a water carrier or oil based bulking agents

such a D-C-TRON Cotton Spray Oil or compatible ULV products.

Mixing/ Application

Low Volume and High Volume applications by ground rig or aircraft when Relyon Alpha

Insecticide is applied with a water carrier.

Add the required quantity of Relyon Alpha Duo Insecticide to water in the spray tank and

mix thoroughly. Maintain agitation during mixing and application.

Ultra Low Volume (ULV) application by aircraft when Relyon Alpha Duo Insecticide is

applied with oil based bulking agents.

This product can be applied mixed either with D-C-TRON Cotton Spray Oil or other

compatible products (See Compatibility Section).

First add the mixing partner to the spray tank and then, with the agitator on motion, add the

required quantity of Relyon Alpha Duo Insecticide direct to the spray tank. Do not mix with

water and ensure that no water is in the spraying system.

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 100L 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 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.

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

1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500L/ha

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

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

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

30mL/100L of concentrate spray.

The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100L of water, and the sprayer set up

and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows.

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

industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best

Practices.

Low Volume and High Volume applications by ground rig or aircraft when Relyon Alpha

Duo Insecticide is applied with a water carrier.

Relyon Alpha Duo Insecticide can be applied by ground or aircraft with a water carrier.

Thorough coverage is essential to ensure adequate control. Always apply with a non-ionic

surfactant unless detailed on the label of a tank mix partner. Apply during the cooler parts

of the day or at night.

Ground Application – water carrier

For low volume spraying of field crops with ground rigs, use a total volume of 50-200 L/ha

except for sweet corn, tomatoes and tobacco where higher volumes should be used. Drop

arms should be used on ground rigs in row crops taller than 30cm (0.3 m). The application

should be made as a fine spray, preferably using hollow cone nozzles, unless directed in

the Critical Comments.

Aerial Application – water carrier

Do NOT apply to trellis tomatoes by aircraft. Use a minimum spray volume of 20 L/ha. For

spring/early application to cereals, Linola, canola, rice and to other dense crops, apply in

a total spray volume of 30 – 35L/ha. If possible, spray in a crosswind. Avoid spraying in

calm conditions or when wind is light and variable in direction. Apply as a spray of 100-150

microns VMD.

Ultra Low Volume (ULV) application by aircraft

Relyon Alpha Duo Insecticide, mixed with DC-TRON Cotton spray Oil and other compatible

products should be applied in a minimum total spray volume of 1.5L/ha. It should only be

applied by aircraft with suitable equipment to provide a droplet size of approximately 80-100

microns VMD. Applications should be made in the cooler part of the day or at night. Avoid

application in very calm or windy conditions. Preferably apply in light to moderate cross

winds.

Resistance Warning:

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

GROUP 3A INSECTICIDE

For insect resistance management Relyon Alpha Duo 100 Insecticide is a group 3A

Insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to this product and other

group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population.

The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if this product or

other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of this product on

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

is difficult to detect prior to use, Nutrien Ag Solutions Limited accepts no liability for any

losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant insects.

Relyon Alpha Duo 100 Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance management

strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Nutrien Ag Solutions Limited

representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

In NSW and Qld, application of this product to Helicoverpa armigera larvae longer than

5 mm may not only be ineffective but it may increase the level of synthetic pyrethroid

resistance.

This product should NOT be used to treat infestations that were not controlled by an earlier

application of it or another synthetic pyrethroid.

Infestations not controlled by this product should be treated with an insecticide from another

chemical group. Application of this product with an insecticide from another chemical

group such as Methomyl will assist with the management of synthetic pyrethroid resistant

Helicoverpa armigera.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Dangerous to bees. Do NOT spray on any plants in flower while bees are foraging. Relyon

Alpha Duo Insecticide is known to have a deterrent effect on foraging bees for a short

period of time after spraying. Risk to bees is reduced by spraying in early morning and late

evening while bees are not foraging.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Dangerous to fish and aquatic invertebrates such as yabbies. Do NOT contaminate fish

ponds, dams, drains, rivers or streams with the chemical or used containers. Drift and run-

off from treated areas may be hazardous to fish or crustaceans in adjacent sites.

Storage and

Disposal:

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well ventilated area. DO NOT store for

prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

This container can be recycled if it is clean, dry, free of visible residues and has the

drumMUSTER logo visible. Triple-rinse container for disposal. Dispose of rinsate by adding

it to the spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemical on site. Wash outside of the

container and the cap. Store cleaned container in a sheltered place with cap removed. It

will then be acceptable for recycling at any drumMUSTER collection or similar container

management program site. The cap should not be replaced, but may be taken separately.

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 relevant local, state or territory government regulations. Do not burn empty

containers or product.

Refillable Containers: Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves and

return to point of supply for refill or storage.

50 mL/ha

Apply when mite numbers reach damaging

levels. Spray seedling crops if silvering or

whitening (bleaching) of the leaves is causing a

reduction in crop growth. If possible, spray on a

calm, mild morning when mites are actively

feeding on crop leaves. Do NOT apply as a pre-

emergence treatment.

To control aphids, sprays should be applied at 3

and 7 weeks after emergence to reduce aphid

colonisation and the spread of Barley Yellow

Dwarf Virus. This will also reduce the effect of

feeding aphid damage.
