COTTON
Pest:
Two-spotted mite (Tetranychus urticae), Cotton aphid (Aphis gossypii) Suppression of Silverleaf Whitefly (Bemisia tabaci)
State:  Qld, NSW, NT, WA only
Rate/ha: 600 or 800 mL
Critical comments:
Mites:
Apply before mite damage occurs or when 30% of plant leaves are infested. Alternatively apply when 15% of plants are infested and the rate of increase is such that 30% of plants are likely to be infested within 7 to 10 days. Treatment at higher infestation levels may lead to unsatisfactory results. When sampling for mites follow the current CSIRO sampling method.
Aphids: Apply before aphid damage occurs. A repeat application can be made, if required, provided this is in keeping with resistance management guidelines. Only use the lower rate when application is by ground based equipment.
Thorough spray coverage is essential. Ground application should involve the use of droppers with nozzles pointing upwards to ensure adequate deposits on the underside of leaves.
Apply PEGASUS under a pest management program that includes regular crop checking.
Silverleaf Whitefly: Apply when population densities are still at low to moderate levels (10 to 20% of leaves infested).
Suppression may not be satisfactory once population densities exceed 25% infestation, or when high numbers of adults are invading from nearby fields.

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

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Mixing
DO NOT use in open mixing and loading systems. Add the required amount of PEGASUS to clean water in half filled spray tank with the agitator or by-pass in operation. Maintain agitation while filling tank with remainder of water. Agitation must also be maintained throughout the spray operation.

Application
To be effective PEGASUS requires thorough spray coverage. Ensure that equipment is properly calibrated to give an even distribution at the correct volume.
Ground application: Apply in a minimum of 100 L of water/ha. The use of hollow cone nozzles and droppers are recommended.
Aerial application: Apply in a minimum of 20 L of water/ha, with a minimum VMD of 130 µm. PEGASUS should not be applied when wind speeds are below 1 m/s or exceed 4 m/s. Application of PEGASUS should be avoided when temperatures exceed 30C or when conditions are unstable.

Compatibility
As formulations of other manufacturer’s products are beyond the control of Syngenta, and the quality of water may vary with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

GROUP 12A INSECTICIDE

Insecticide Resistance Warning
For insecticide resistance management PEGASUS is a Group 12A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to PEGASUS and other Group 12A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if PEGASUS and other Group 12A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of PEGASUS on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Syngenta Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from failure of PEGASUS to control resistant insects. PEGASUS may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your supplier, Syngenta representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

Pegasus should only be used whilst following the guidelines of the current Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy (IRMS) and cotton Best Management Practices (BMP) Manual.
