DIRECTIONS FOR USE
DO NOT apply to crops under visible stress.
DO NOT apply if wind speed is less than 3km and more than 20km per hour or under conditions where temperature inversions may occur.
DO NOT spray any plants in flower while bees are actively foraging.

COTTON
State: Qld, NSW, WA, NT only
Pest: Heliothis (Helicoverpa armigera, Helicoverpa punctigera)
Rate: 550 mL/ha or 700 mL/ha Add a non-ionic surfactant at recommended label rate
Critical comments: Timing is important. For best results apply at or just prior to the anticipated time of hatching of Helicoverpa eggs as indicated by egg levels or scouting. As earlier larval stages are easier to control, DO NOT target larvae larger than 5 mm (very small to small). Large larvae and larvae feeding within bolls and squares may not be controlled. Larvae must feed on treated areas in order to achieve effective control. Where high egg lays occur the addition of an ovicide is recommended. Use the lower rate on light infestations.
Make no more than 4 applications per season. ORACLE should be used in accordance with the cotton Best Management Practices Manual.

Pest: Green Mirids (Creontiades dilutes) Suppression only
Rate: 550 mL/ha or 700 mL/ha Add a non-ionic surfactant at recommended label rate
Critical comments: Apply to developing Green Mirid populations that are predominantly nymphs. Maximum effect is not achieved until 5 to 7 days after application. Use the higher rate on heavier populations.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER, CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION

WITHHOLDING PERIODS:
Cotton: DO NOT HARVEST, GRAZE OR CUT FOR STOCK FOOD FOR 4 WEEKS AFTER APPLICATION
DO NOT FEED COTTON TRASH FROM TREATED AREAS TO ANIMALS, INCLUDING POULTRY

EXPORT TRADE ADVICE
Treated crop commodities destined for export may require extra time being allowed between application and harvest, as some export markets have either no Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) or different MRLs to those of Australia. Details of overseas standards and any export interval can be obtained by contacting Adama Australia Pty Ltd before using this product.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Mixing
Add the required amount of ORACLE to a partly filled spray tank, and then add the remainder of the water.
Application
ORACLE is not systemic. To be effective, ORACLE requires thorough spray coverage. Ensure that equipment is properly calibrated to give an even distribution at the correct volume.
Ground Application: Apply in at least 100 L spray volume per hectare.
Air Application: Apply in at least 20 L spray volume per hectare.
Compatibility
As formulations of other manufacturer’s products are beyond the control of Adama Australia, and the quality of water may vary with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
For insecticide resistance management ORACLE INSECTICIDE is a Group 6 insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to ORACLE and other Group 6 insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if ORACLE or other Group 6 insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of ORACLE 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 ORACLE to control resistant insects. ORACLE may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

RESISTANCE
Experience has shown that repeated use of one particular insecticide or insecticides from the same chemical group can lead to the early development of insect resistance to that insecticide or chemical group. Therefore ORACLE should not be applied more than the following number of times per season/crop/year:
Cotton: Four sprays per season.

PRECAUTION
Human flagging is not supported unless flaggers are protected by engineering controls such as vehicles with cabs.
Re-entry period
DO NOT enter treated areas until the spray has dried, unless wearing cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.
