Controls Two-Spotted Mite and Cotton Aphids and suppresses Silverleaf Whitefly in Cotton
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Note: The effect of this product could be diminished if rain falls within 6 hours of application.
Restraint: If applying 2 sprays they must not be consecutive or applied within 6 weeks of each other.
State: Qld, NSW, NT, WA only
Pest: Two-Spotted Mite (Tetranychus urticae), Cotton Aphid (Aphis gossypii), Suppression of Silverleaf Whitefly (Bemisia tabaci)
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 RECEPTOR 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.
DO NOT HARVEST FOR 14 DAYS AFTER APPLICATION.
DO NOT FEED TREATED COTTON FODDER OR COTTON TRASH TO LIVESTOCK.
Add the required amount of RECEPTOR 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.
To be effective RECEPTOR 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. RECEPTOR should not be applied when wind speeds are below 1 m/s or exceed 4 m/s. Application of RECEPTOR should be avoided when temperatures exceed 30°C or when conditions are unstable.
As formulations of other manufacturer’s products are beyond the control of Adama, 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 RECEPTOR is a Group 12A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to RECEPTOR 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 RECEPTOR and other Group 12A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of RECEPTOR on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from failure of RECEPTOR to control resistant insects. RECEPTOR may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your supplier, Adama representative or local agricultural department agronomist.
RECEPTOR should only be used whilst following the guidelines of the current Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy (IRMS) and cotton Best Management Practices (BMP) Manual.
Manual flagging is not permitted during aerial spraying of RECEPTOR.
DO NOT allow entry into treated areas for 24 hours after treatment. When prior entry is necessary, limit duration of entry and wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrists, and elbow-length PVC gloves. Clothing must be washed after each day’s use.
Cotton chippers: DO NOT allow entry into treated areas for 24 hours after treatment. When entering treated areas between 24 to 72 hours after treatment, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrists (or equivalent clothing) and gloves. Clothing must be washed after each day’s use.
