GROUP 4A 23 INSECTICIDE

An injection treatment for control of banana rust thrips and banana weevil borer in bananas as specified in the DIRECTIONS FOR USE table.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Insecticide Resistance Warning
For insecticide resistance management, Movento Energy is a Group 4A and Group 23 insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Movento Energy and other Group 4A and Group 23 insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Movento Energy and other Group 4A and Group 23 insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Movento Energy on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Movento Energy to control resistant insects. Movento Energy may be subject to specific resistance management strategies.

Export of Treated Produce
Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances do not exist in all markets for produce treated with Movento Energy. If you are growing produce for export, please check with Bayer CropScience for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances before using Movento Energy.

Mixing
Shake the container well before using. If diluting in water (refer rate column in DIRECTIONS FOR USE table) add the required quantity of Movento Energy to water in the tank while stirring or with agitators in motion. Movento Energy should be applied as soon after mixing as possible.

Application
For all application instructions, refer to the Critical Comments in the DIRECTIONS FOR USE table.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
RESTRAINT
DO NOT apply more than one application of Movento Energy or any other Group 4A Insecticide per crop.

Critical comments:
Application Timing
DO NOT treat plants after bell emergence.
Select the best follower for treatment. Do not treat any follower more than once. Treatment can occur at any time within 3 months after harvest of the mother plant or nurse-suckering.
To limit the risk of plant damage from injection, inject only those followers that are at least 1.0 m tall to the throat of the plant.
For application in plant bananas the minimum height requirement applies as above, plus the plant should be at a stage at least 3 months prior to bell emergence.
Application Method
Inject Movento Energy approximately 15 cm from the base of the plant at an off-centre, downward angle to a depth of 5 to 10 cm. Do not inject into the centre of the plant as this may result in plant death.
Injection should be conducted in a manner which ensures applied chemical is retained within the plant. Irrigation or moderate to heavy or prolonged periods of rainfall may saturate the internal structure of the pseudostem, leading to ‘run-out’ from injection holes. Allow sufficient time following irrigation and rainfall events, before application, to minimise such ‘run-out’.
Stem splitting
Note that some minor stem splitting associated with the injection site may occur. This has been found to be most pronounced in conditions that favour rapid plant growth e.g. in the period November to February.
Bunch protection from rust thrips
Movento Energy should be used as part of an integrated pest management approach which should include the use of other measures for control of banana rust thrips, such as bell injection and bunch applications.
