Thorough coverage is essential. For application by aircraft apply in 10-50 L of water/ha.

Slowly add the required amount of product to the water in the spray tank under agitation.
Soil Application
In-furrow: Apply as a band spray to the open furrow at planting. Spray the entire furrow width using a nozzle located directly behind the seed tube. Ensure all spray is directed into the furrow contacting bottom, sides and all soil drawn in to the furrow at closure. Use a minimum of  20 L of water/ha. Use the higher rate under extreme population numbers.
Bait Application
Bran bait: Mix 10 mL/kg of bran using sufficient water to give a moist crumb structure. Allow to stand for 2-3 hours before application. Gloves should be worn when preparing and applying the bait.
Cracked wheat or cracked sorghum bait: Mix the required volume of this product and sunflower oil together. Then, add to the wheat or sorghum, mixing thoroughly. Gloves should be worn when preparing the bait.

For insecticide resistance management Lorsban 500 EC Insecticide is a Group 1B insecticide.
Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Lorsban 500 EC Insecticide 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 Lorsban 500 EC Insecticide or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Lorsban 500 EC Insecticide on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Dow AgroSciences Australia Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result
from the failure of Lorsban 500 EC Insecticide to control resistant insects. Lorsban 500 EC Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier or Dow AgroSciences representative.
