Mixing and seed treatment
Prior to pouring or pumping SENATOR 600 Red from the container, either shake container vigorously or operate pump by-pass to ensure thorough mixing of the contents. Flowable formulations will settle over time. Add most of the water into the mixing vat followed by flowable fungicides (e.g. quintozene), coating agents (e.g. Peridiam®, Nacret®) and SENATOR 600 Red and stir until homogeneous. Then add the emulsifiable liquid fungicide (e.g. Apron® 200SL i.e. metalaxyl-M) slowly whilst stirring. Calibrate commercial seed dressing equipment to ensure the seed throughput is mixed with the correct dose of slurry seed dressing. Ensure the seed dressing mixture is applied to the maximum number of seeds when initially applied to the seed. Retain seed in mixing chamber until coverage on seed is good. Store treated seed under cover in cool, dry conditions. Do no treat seed with poor viability. Do not store treated seed near foodstuffs or where likely to prove hazardous to humans or animals.

Forage and seed pasture, canola, forage brassicas, lupin, summer crops Mixing and seed treatment
Prior to pouring, shake container vigorously, then add the required quantity of SENATOR 600 Red to sufficient water to give even coverage of the seed to be treated. Place seed in mixing equipment and rotate. Mix SENATOR 600 Red with sufficient water to give even coverage of seed and spray onto seed. For small seeds, apply a total volume of SENATOR 600 Red plus water of 1.5L/100 kg seed. For large seeds, apply a total volume of SENATOR 600 Red plus water of 500 mL/100kg seed. Continue rotation until all liquid is distributed on seed. Store treated seed under cover in cool, dry conditions. Do not treat seed with poor viability. Do not store treated seed near foodstuffs, or where likely to prove hazardous to humans or animals.
Do not carry over maize, sorghum, sunflower or sweet corn seed from one season to the next season. The insecticidal activity of SENATOR 600 Red on the seeds is maintained for a minimum of two seasons.
Flow rate: SENATOR 600 Red treated seed may slow flow rate of seed. Check flow rate of seed through sowing machinery before sowing to ensure the desired seeding rate is achieved.

Mixing and seed treatment
Prior to pouring, shake container vigorously, then add the required quantity of SENATOR 600 Red to sufficient water to give even coverage of the cereal seed to be treated. The quantity of water used for mixing will vary depending on type of equipment and quality of seed. Use a minimum of 400 mL of mixture (i.e SENATOR 600 Red plus water) with each 100 kg of seed. Do not use more then 600 mL of mixture (product + water) with each 100 kg of seed. Whatever dilution is used it is essential that 120 mL (or 240 mL) of SENATOR 600 Red is applied / 100 kg seed. The mixture should be gently stirred regularly.

Compatibility
SENATOR 600 Red is compatible with flowable seed dressing formulations of triadimenol + cypermethrin and tebuconazole + cypermethrin for use on cereal seeds. Do not use more then 600mL of total mixture/100kg seed (i.e. SENATOR 600 Red plus other products plus water). SENATOR 600 Red is compatible with triadimenol + cypermethrin flowable seed dressings for use on cotton seed.
