For the control of Two-spotted Mite, European Red Mite and Bryobia Mite in Pome Fruit, Stone Fruit, Almonds Fruiting Vegetables, Cucurbits, Papaya and Strawberries.
Acramite Miticide is a selective miticide for the control of plant-eating mite pests on apples, pears, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, almonds, fruiting vegetables including tomatoes, capsicum, peppers and eggplant, cucurbits, papaya and strawberry. When used as directed and applied to the foliage, it provides quick koockdown through contact activity, and good residual control. Due to its unique chemistry, mode of action and selective nature, Acramite is relatively inactive against beneficial/predaceous mites and insects and therefore is compatible with !PM and resistance management programs.
Measure the required amount of Acramite, add to partly filled spray tank under agitation, and then add the remainder of the water.
Use a sprayer desigoed to apply high volumes of spray solution 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 spray solution (Acramite +water) to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off. The required amount of spray solution (Acramite +water) will change as the crop grows. The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or expert advice.
Acramite has been shown to degrade rapidly when mixed and stored with alkaline water. To prevent degradation under alkaline conditions, solutions of Acramite must be used promptly (within 24 hours).
Alternatively, a commercially available buffering agent can be added to the solution to reduce the pH to a neutral I acidic range.
This product is non-systemic in action and therefore complete coverage is required for mite control.
