FOR THE CONTROL OF A WIDE VARIETY OF INSECT PESTS ON CROPS IN VARIOUS SITUATIONS AS SPECIFIED IN THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE TABLE
DIRECTIONS FOR USE RESTRAINTS
DO NOT use as a foliar spray in banana plantations, or in situations and orchards where mite predators are established and providing effective mite control.
DO NOT apply as a foliar treatment if rainfall is expected before spray deposits dry on leaf surfaces.
DO NOT apply to bananas by aircraft.
Tree and vine crops
Note for Rate column: In the following table, all rates are given for dilute spraying. For concentrate spraying, refer to the Mixing/Application section
Disect 100 EC Insecticide/Miticide is a contact and residual insecticide/miticide. It can be used as a protective treatment when applied at regular intervals or as a knockdown treatment to control existing pests. Best results are obtained when Disect 100 EC is applied before pest populations build up to damaging levels.
This product is not suitable for use in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs where mite predators are established and providing effective mite control.
Disect 100 EC may be applied by either ground rig or aircraft. Thorough coverage is essential to ensure adequate control. Do not apply as a fog or mist.
Application in Tree Crops and Vines
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.
(a) 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.
(b) Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen water volume.
(c) Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate.
(d) The mixing rate for concentrate spraying can then be calculated in the following way:
(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 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10, that is 30 mL/100 L of concentrate spray.
(e) 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.
(f) For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.
Ground Application: Applications should be made as a fine spray preferably using hollow cone nozzles and a droplet size of 150 to 200 microns. The application volume will depend on the type of crop to be treated. The following are suggested:
Low volume broadacre applications - e.g. to cereals, canola, grain legumes, lucerne, subterranean clover: 50 to 200 L/ha.
Low volume applications to row crops - cotton, tomatoes, navy beans: 50 to 200 L/ha.
High volume applications to row crops - e.g. trellised tomatoes: 200 to 1000 L/ha except as noted in critical comments. Use 200 L/ha from transplanting increasing to 1000 L/ha at maturity.
High volume directed spray:
Grapes: Apply by hand application, using a high volume coarse spray of 500 mL/vine. (e.g. at approx. 2500 vines/ha = 1250 L/ha).
Foliar sprays to bananas: 300 to 500 L/ha.
High volume application to stone fruit: 1000 to 2000 L/ha.
Soil Applied Sprays: High volume application Bananas:
Stool treatment: Apply as a coarse spray at 500 to 750 mL per stool.
Band treatment: Apply as a band application with a side delivery boom and offset nozzles - 1L of spray solution per stool.
Citrus: Apply as a high volume, directed spray to the ground under each tree. For optimum control apply to both sides of the tree. Total spray volume should be 5 to 10 L/tree (e.g. at 250 trees/ha = 1250 to 2500 L/ha).
In furrow applications:
Cotton & Sugarcane: Use a coarse spray: 60 to 100 L/ha as a band over the seed or sett before covering with soil - refer to critical comments for details.
Use at least 20 L/ha of total spray volume. Spray during the cooler parts of the day or night. To reduce possibility of drift, avoid spraying in calm conditions or when wind is light and variable. Preferably, spray in a crosswind. Use suitable application equipment and/or nozzles to deliver a fine spray with a droplet size of 150 to 200 microns.
A spraydrift minimisation strategy should be employed at all times when aerially applying sprays to, or near, sensitive areas. The strategy envisaged is best exemplified by the cotton industry's Best Management Practice manual.
The smallest rate for cotton rate is based on a 1m row spacing. If row spacing varies from 1m then apply at the use rate according to mL/100m of row.
The rate for sugarcane is based on a 1.5 m row spacing. If row spacing varies from 1.5m then apply at the use rate according to mL/100 m of row.
