MIXING: Add the required quantity of product to clean water while stirring or while agitators are in motion. Maintain agitation during spraying. Note: DO NOT open the water-soluble sachets.
APPLICATION: The product may be applied as a dilute or concentrate spray.
DILUTE SPRAYING (Apples, Pears, Peaches, and Cucumbers only):
- Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of runoff 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 runoff. Avoid excessive runoff.
- 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 100L of water. Spray to the point of runoff.
- The required dilute spray volume will change, and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed as the crop grows.
CONCENTRATE SPRAYING (Apples, Pears, Peaches, and Cucumbers only):
Use a sprayer designed and set up for concentrate spraying (i.e., a sprayer which applies water volumes less than those required to reach the point of runoff) 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:
- Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha.
- Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha.
- The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (i.e., 1500 L / 500 L = 3)
- If the dilute label rate is 25 g / 100L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 25, that is 75 g/100 L of concentrate spray.
The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100L of water, and the sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows. For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training, and follow industry Best Practices. Note: In some instances, residual control may be reduced from the use of concentrate sprays.
COMPATIBILITY: A number of insecticides, fungicides, spreaders, adhesives, and wetting agents are compatible with PYRANICA if mixed in the spray tank and used promptly. As it is impossible to know all the commercial products on sale, we cannot assume any responsibility for tank mix compatibility. We can only recommend to the user that a preliminary compatibility test be carried out with the planned mixture to observe the physical aspect of the spray and the reaction it may produce on the plants to be treated during the days following the test.
RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT: Apples/Pears/Peaches: A successful resistance management strategy will use a variety of methods including the use of chemicals from different groups (e.g. oils, organophosphates) and the use of predators.
- Make only one application of PYRANICA per season.
- If another spray is required, alternate with products from other chemical groups.
- If PYRANICA is the last miticide applied one season, then the first miticide spray the following season should be with a product from another chemical group.
Ornamentals: A successful resistance management strategy will use a variety of methods including the use of chemicals from different groups (e.g. oils, organophosphates) and the use of predators.
- Use no more than 4 sprays of PYRANICA each calendar year.
- DO NOT apply PYRANICA sequentially.
- Preferably use at least 3 miticide sprays from 2 other chemical groups before re-using PYRANICA.
Integrated Mite Control (IMC): PYRANICA, when applied within the labelled rate ranges, allows IMC (based on T. pyri and T. occidentalis) to be maintained - but will adversely affect the mite predator Phytoseiulus persimilis.
INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING: For insecticide resistance management PYRANICA is a Group 21A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to PYRANICA and other Group 21A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if PYRANICA and other Group 21A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of PYRANICA on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since the occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of PYRANICA to control resistant insects. PYRANICA may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For more information contact your supplier, Sipcam representative, or local agricultural department agronomist.
GROUP 21A INSECTICIDE
PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS, ENVIRONMENT AND BEES: Dangerous to fish and aquatic organisms. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers, or waterways with the chemical or used containers. DO NOT spray across open bodies of water. Dangerous to bees. DO NOT spray any plants in flower while bees are foraging. May adversely affect the mite predator Phytoseiulus persimilis.
STORAGE AND DISPOSAL: Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple-rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to the spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace the cap and return clean containers to the recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and deliver empty packaging to an approved waste management facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available, bury the empty packaging 500 mm below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose, clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant local, state or territory government regulations. Do not burn empty containers or product.
SAFETY DIRECTIONS: Harmful if swallowed. Will irritate the eyes. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid inhaling dust. When preparing spray wear a face shield or goggles. If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. Wash hands after use. After each day's use, wash face shield or goggles.
