For the control of lightbrown apple moth on apples & pears (pome fruit), blueberries, citrus, grapevines and kiwifruit; and for the control of various other lepidopteran pests of almonds, apples & pears (pome fruit), avocado, coffee, custard apple, egg plant, longan, lychee, peppers (capsicum and chilli), okra, macadamia and tomatoes as specified in the Directions for Use.

Prodigy Insecticide is very suitable for use in orchards and vineyards using integrated pest management (IPM) programs.

For insecticide resistance management, Prodigy Insecticide is a Group 18 insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Prodigy and other Group 18 insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Prodigy and other Group 18 insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Prodigy 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 Prodigy to control resistant insects. Prodigy may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Dow AgroSciences representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

Prior to pouring, shake container vigorously, then add the required quantity of Prodigy to water in the spray vat while stirring or with agitators in motion.

Prodigy is incompatible with mineral spray oils. DO NOT mix concentrates together but add each to the spray tank separately. As formulations of other manufacturers' products are beyond the control of Dow AgroSciences Australia Limited, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities. As changes in climatic conditions can alter the sensitivity of plants to mixtures of sprays, Dow AgroSciences cannot be responsible for the behaviour of such mixtures.

Not all surfactants or crop oils are of equal quality.
Dow AgroSciences does not support the use of alternative products other than those listed below.

If intending to use other wetting agents consult Dow AgroSciences.

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 change as the crop grows.

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.
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 3X (i.e. 1500 L ÷ 500L = 3)
4. If the dilute label rate is 25 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 25, that is; 75 mL/100 L of concentrate spray.
The chosen spray volume and the sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows.
DO NOT use a concentrate rate higher than that specified in the CRITICAL COMMENTS. For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.
