GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
MIXING
The product can be poured directly into the water in the vat with agitators in operation. If combining with another product, mix each product separately in a small quantity of water first before adding to the vat.

APPLICATION BY DILUTE SPRAYING
Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of runoff 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.

APPLICATION BY 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
(i) Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha
(ii) Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha
(iii) The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (i.e. 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)
(iv) If the dilute label rate is 15 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 15 that is 45 mL/ 100 L of concentrate spray.
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.

REDLEGGED EARTH MITE
Redlegged Earth Mite (RLEM) is an introduced pasture and crop pest in southern Australia. RLEM is active in the cool wet months from May to November. During the 6 hotter months of the year RLEM avoid the hot dry conditions by developing a resting stage which is impervious to heat and drought. They do this by producing diapause (over-summering) eggs in Spring that remain on the soil surface. Very high numbers of over-summering eggs can be found on the soil surface, ready to emerge
in the following Autumn, providing a threat to the germinating pasture or crop. The use of higher application rates in cereals and pasture after Autumn rains when mites emerge can provide extended periods of control.
A system such as Timerite™ can also be used to estimate the optimum timing for a Spring spray to reduce egg-laying adult mite numbers and hence the damage to pasture and crops the following autumn when RLEM emerge from eggs.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
For insect resistance management Adama DIMETHOATE 400 INSECTICIDE is a Group 1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Adama DIMETHOATE 400 and other Group 1B insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Adama DIMETHOATE 400 or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Adama DIMETHOATE 400 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 Adama DIMETHOATE 400 to control resistant insects. Adama DIMETHOATE 400 may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama representative or local agricultural department agronomist.
