Trade Advice:

Export of treated produce

Growers should note that MRL’s or import tolerances do not exist in all markets for edible

produce treated with Sombrero® 600. If you are growing edible produce for export, please

check with ADAMA for latest information on MRL’s and import tolerances before using

Sombrero® 600.

General Instructions:

General Instructions:

Mixing

Flowable formulations will settle overtime. Prior to pouring or pumping Sombrero® 600

from the container, either shake container vigorously or operate pump by-pass to ensure

thorough mixing of the contents. When preparing mixtures the following mixing orders

applies: flowable fungicides, coating agents (e.g. Peridiam*), then add Sombrero® 600 and

stir until homogenous. Add any emulsifiable liquids last whilst slowly stirring.

Application

Calibrate commercial seed treatment equipment to ensure the seed throughout is mixed

with the correct dose of slurry seed treatment. Ensure the seed treatment mixture is applied

to the maximum number of seeds when initially applied to the seed. Retain seed in a

mixing chamber until a good seed to seed coverage is achieved. Do not overmix seed as a

detrimental effect on treatment quality may result.

Forage and seed pasture, canola, forage brassicas, lupin, summer crops: For small seeds,

apply a total volume of Sombrero® 600 plus water of 1.5 L/100 Kg seed. For large seeds,

apply a total volume of Sombrero® 600 plus water of 500 mL/100 Kg seed. Do not carry

over maize, sorghum, sunflower or sweet corn seed from one season to the next season.

The insecticidal activity of Sombrero® 600 on the seeds is maintained for a minimum of two

seasons.

Cereal crops: Use a range of 400 - 600 mL total volume (Sombrero® 600 + water) with

each 100 Kg of seed. Do not use a volume of more than 600 mL with each 100 Kg seed.

The mixture should be gently stirred regularly.

Sowing of treated seed

Check flow rate of seed through sowing machinery before sowing to ensure the desired

seeding rate is achieved. Drilling for seed sowing is recommended.

Seed quality

Sombrero® 600 Seed Dressing should not be used on seed with more than 12% moisture

content, or on sprung, sprouted, damaged or severely pinched seed, or seed of poor

viability. If in doubt, have a germination test carried out on the seed before treatment to

ensure that it is of acceptable standard. Treating with Sombrero® 600 as directed may

raise the moisture level of the seed by up to 0.6%, depending on conditions at treatment.

Compatibility

For information on compatibility of Sombrero® 600 with other products contact your local

ADAMA representative.

Storage of treated seed

Do not store treated seed near foodstuffs or where likely to prove hazardous to humans

or animals. If the seed is not used immediately after treatment it should be stored in a cool

dry, well ventilated place. Although Sombrero® 600 has no effect on the viability of treated

seed, subsequent germination can be adversely affected by poor storage conditions such

as high moisture combined with high temperatures. No liability can therefore be accepted

for the performance of stored treated seed. Sombrero® 600 will have no effect on storage

life of treated seed when used as directed.

Resistance Warning:

For insecticide resistance management, Sombrero® 600 is a Group 4A insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Sombrero® 600 and other Group

4A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The

resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Sombrero® 600 or

other Group 4A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Sombrero® 600 on

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

is difficult to detect prior to use, ADAMA Australia accepts no liability for any losses that

may result from the failure of Sombrero® 600 to control resistant insects.

Sombrero® 600 may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For

further information contact your local supplier, ADAMA representative or local agricultural

department agronomist.

Precautions:

When treated seed is stored it should be kept apart from other grain and the bags or other

containers should be clearly marked to indicate the contents have been treated with this

product. Do NOT allow seed treated with this product to contaminate seed intended for

human consumption. Do NOT use treated seed for human consumption. Bags which have

held treated seed are not to be used for any other purpose.

Protections:

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Seed treated with this product must not be used for animal consumption or poultry feed or

mixed with animal feed. Do NOT allow seed treated with this product to contaminate seed

intended for animal consumption.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Highly toxic to aquatic and terrestrial life. Do NOT contaminate ponds, waterways and

drains with this product, used containers or bags which have held treated seed. Do NOT

feed treated seed or otherwise expose to wild or domestic birds. Any spillages of treated

seed, however minor, must be cleaned up immediately, preferably by recovery and reuse. If

disposal is required, ensure treated seeds are thoroughly buried and not accessible to birds

and other wildlife.

Storage and

Disposal:

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

prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to

spray tank. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on-site. This container can be recycled

if it is clean, dry, free of visible residues and has the drumMUSTER logo visible. 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

for appropriate disposal 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.

Returnable mini-bulk container with Micro Matic Valve (110L):

DO NOT tamper with the valve or the security seal. DO NOT contaminate the container

with water or any foreign matter. After each use of the product, please ensure that the

coupler delivery system and hoses are disconnected, triple rinsed with clean water and

drained accordingly. When the contents of the container have been used, close all valves

and return to the point of sale for refill or storage. The container remains the property of

Adama Australia Pty. Ltd.

CRITICAL COMMENTS

Cotton

Thrips

580 mL,

875 mL or

1.17 L/

100 Kg of

seed

The degree of damage caused by thrips is dependent

on the magnitude of the thrips population infesting

cotton seedlings and the growth rate of the plants.

Choose a higher rate if high thrips pressure is

expected (e.g. winter cereals and weeds supporting

thrips) and/or cotton seedlings are expected to

experience slow growth (e.g. cool weather from early

planting or sown in shorter season districts), The mid-

rate is considered a general rate for normal

conditions.

Aphids

When applied for thrips control, these rates will also

control early season aphids.

Brown flea beetle

When applied for thrips control, these rates will also

reduce damage to cotyledons caused by Brown flea

beetle.
