GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Abasect Insecticide I Miticide is for control of pest mites on pears, apples, tomatoes, citrus, hops, strawberries and ornamentals, and for the control of pest mites and native budworm on cotton. After application, Abasect Insecticide I Miticide quickly moves onto leaves where it remains for several weeks and where it is taken up by sucking mites. Abasect Insecticide I Miticide is not systemic, making good coverage essential. Abasect that is not absorbed into plants is quickly degraded.

APPLICATION ON COTTON
Air: Apply by air spray when there is a reliable cross wind to assist with good penetration into crop canopy. Application should be carried out in the cooler parts of the day or night. Preferably use aircraft fitted with micronair atomisers.
Ground: Use inter-row droppers fitted with nozzles spraying towards the cotton rows. Inter-row nozzles should be level with or just below the canopy and spraying at right angles to the ground.

MIXING
Measure the required amount of Abasect Insecticide I Miticide, add to the partly filled spray tank, and then add the remainder of the water. If oil is recommended, add this after the Abasect Insecticide I Miticide is well mixed. Wetting agent is not required.

COMPATIBILITY
Abasect Insecticide I Miticide is compatible with most commonly used insecticides and fungicides. Do not apply with ULV formulations.
