GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
MIXING
Fill tank 50 to 75% full then start agitation. Slowly pour granules into tank and maintain agitation throughout spraying.
DO NOT pre-mix FARMOZ APHIDEX WG granules.

APPLICATION
If this product is applied when the temperature is less than 15 C it is essential to have thorough spray coverage for quick and total aphid control.

Fruit Crops – Tree and Vine Crops:
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 100 L 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 to be changed, as the crop grows.

Concentrate Spraying
Use a sprayer designed and set up for the 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 can then be calculated in the following way:
EXAMPLE ONLY
1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha.
2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha.
3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).
4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x10, that is 30 mL/100 L of concentrate spraying.
The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L 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.

COMPATIBILITY
APHIDEX WG may be mixed in the spray vat with any one of the following products: Wetspray and Omite. A mixture of APHIDEX WG with more than one of these products or with any other product may be ineffective or may cause serious damage. The use of such a mixture is not recommended and would therefore be entirely at the user’s risk.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING
For insecticide resistance management APHIDEX WG Aphicide is a Group 1A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to APHIDEX WG and other Group 1A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if APHIDEX WG or other Group 1A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of APHIDEX WG on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.
Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of APHIDEX WG to control insects. APHIDEX WG may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT FOR GREEN PEACH APHID CONTROL
Some Green Peach Aphids are resistant to all commonly used insecticides including APHIDEX WG. If resistance is known or suspected, do not use APHIDEX WG and seek advise on resistance management. If there is no APHIDEX WG resistance, use a maximum of 2 non-consecutive aphid sprays per season. If APHIDEX WG was used as the last aphid spray for the season, do not use it as the first aphid spray next season.
