Critical comments: Wetting Agent: For optimum results, add a wetting agent to the spray at a rate of 20-30 mL/100 L when mixing with water.
Ovicide/Larvicide: Crops should be checked every 2-3 days for eggs and larvae.
Pre Squaring: Initiate sprays when significant numbers of eggs are present, ie 75 eggs/100 plants. Continue at 4-5 day intervals while egg numbers are above these levels and larval control is adequate. Add an effective larvicide at recommended rates if significant numbers of small larvae (20/100 plants) are present.
Squaring-Boll Maturity: Continue above schedule when 50 eggs or more/100 plant terminals are found. Add an effective larvicide at recommended rates if significant numbers of small larvae (10/100 plant terminals) are present. If large larvae survive, use the higher recommended rate or add other effective larvicides. Use higher rate at peak egg laying and when 1st-2nd instar larvae predominate. Good spray coverage is essential to obtain good ovicidal activity.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
MIXING
Electra® 225 may be applied without dilution if using appropriate ULV application equipment (See Aircraft Application). If dilution is required fill spray tank 1/4 - 1/2 full of water and add Electra 225 directly to spray tank and continue filling with water. Mix thoroughly using mechanical or hydraulic means.
DO NOT use air agitation. Continue agitation for several minutes prior to spraying, agitation is required to fully mix the chemical.

USE OF WETTING AGENT
If diluting Electra 225 with water, add Wetspray® 600 at 20 mL per 100 L of spray solution.

APPLICATION
Larvicidal: Apply at the recommended rates when insects first appear and repeat as needed. Apply the lower rates on small caterpillars and light infestations of insects. Use the higher rate on large caterpillars and heavier infestations of insects. Best control is obtained when spray schedules are initiated on young insects.
Ovicidal/Larvicidal: Use these rates where crops are regularly monitored for eggs and larvae. Use the lower rate when threshold egg levels are reached and the higher rate at peak egg laying and if 1st-2nd instar larvae are present (up to 0.5 cm long). If larvae greater than 0.5 cm are present, use larvicide rates as recommended.
Ground Application: Apply as a medium to fine spray using cone nozzles. DO NOT apply as a fog or mist. For effective insect control, proper timing and coverage are essential.
Special Mixing and Application Instructions for Tree Crops and Vines:
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 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
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 :
3 X (i.e. 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)
4. 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.
- 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.
Aircraft Application: Apply using aircraft correctly fitted with approved equipment, accurately calibrated. To reduce drift and to optimise spray deposition avoid application in calm conditions, and aim for application in light to moderate cross winds.
ULV: ELECTRA 225 may be applied undiluted at the recommended rate, but results will generally be better if the product is diluted with water to give a total volume of 3 L/ha. Droplet size (VMD) should be in the range 80-100 microns.
Low Volume: Electra 225 may be applied in water at volumes of 20-30 L/ha using low volume equipment. Droplet size (VMD) should be in the range 100-200 micron.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
For insecticide resistance management ELECTRA® 225 Insecticide is a Group 1A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to ELECTRA 225 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 ELECTRA 225 or other Group 1A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of ELECTRA 225 on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.
Since the occurrence of resistant insects is difficult to detect prior to use, Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of ELECTRA 225 to control resistant insects. ELECTRA 225 may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

COMPATIBILITY
Electra 225 is compatible with most of the commonly used insecticides and fungicides. DO NOT mix with pesticides having alkaline reaction.

PRECAUTION
Keep unprotected persons out of operational area during treatment and while there is a danger of spray drift. Avoid contact with spray residues. Keep unprotected persons out of treated area for at least 24 hours.
Re-entry Period: Do not allow entry into treated areas until the spray deposits have dried. When prior entry is necessary, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and elbow-length PVC gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.
