BRASSICA CROPS
Pest: Cabbage Cluster Caterpillar (Crocidolomia pavonana), Cabbage White Butterfly (Pieris rapae)
State: All States
Rate: 1.0 to 2.0 L/ha
WHP: 7 days (H); 21 days (G)
Critical comments: Spray as required depending upon pest pressure. Closely monitor pest populations. Use the lower rate for small caterpillars and the higher rate for advanced caterpillars. Add a non-ionic wetting agent at the recommended rates.

COTTON
Pest: Heliothis (Native Budworm) (Helicoverpa punctigera)
State: Qld, NSW, WA, NT only
Rate: 2.0 or 2.5 L/ha
500 mL to 1.0 L/ha PLUS the registered rate of a compatible larvicide
WHP: 21 days (H & G)
Critical comments: This product has ovicidal and larvicidal activity.
Ovicidal and Larvicidal Rate: Application should be made on eggs, very small or small larvae only. The most effective timing is on egg hatch. Closely monitor pest populations after application.
Use the lower dose rate on light to moderate infestations and the higher rate on heavier infestations. Repeat application as needed to maintain control. Ensure thorough coverage of target areas.
Larvae must feed on treated area in order to achieve effective control. Large larvae and larvae feeding within bolls and squares may not be controlled.
Ovicidal Rate: Ovicidal rates of SHOWDOWN 375 should only be used in a tank mix with the registered rate of a compatible larvicide. Time application on egg threshold levels prior to hatching and closely monitor the population. Use the lower rate of SHOWDOWN 375 where egg pressure is less than 3 eggs per terminal. Use the higher rate of SHOWDOWN 375 under higher egg pressure. Repeat application to maintain control. Ensure thorough coverage of target areas.

MAIZE, SWEET CORN
Pest: Cotton Bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera)
State: Qld, NSW, Vic, Tas, WA only
Rate: 1.5 to 2.0 L/ha
WHP:
Maize 7 days (H & G)
Sweetcorn 7 days (H); 21 days (G)
Critical comments: Closely monitor pest populations during tasselling-silking.
If high numbers of medium to large caterpillars are in the tassels, spray at tassel emergence. Egg-laying is heaviest during green silk formation. Time applications to coincide with egg hatching. Ensure thorough coverage of target areas.

POTATOES
Pest: Heliothis (Budworms) (Helicoverpa spp.)
State: All States
Rate: 1.0 L/ha
WHP: 7 days (H); 21 days (G)
Critical comments: Time application to coincide with egg hatching and closely monitor pest populations. Larvae should be no larger than 2-3 mm in length at application. Ensure thorough coverage of target area. Follow up treatments may be required to maintain pest control. For resistance management a maximum of 2 applications of Group 1A (carbamate) insecticides (e.g. SHOWDOWN 375) is recommended per crop. If an application failure is suspected to be due to insecticide resistance, seek advice from your state agriculture or primary industry department.
DO NOT follow up with another application of SHOWDOWN 375 or an application from the same insecticide group.

State: All States
Rate:
Low Volume: 1.4 L/ha
High Volume: 70 mL/100 L water
WHP: 1 day (H); 21 days (G)
Critical comments: Time application to coincide with egg hatching and closely monitor pest populations. Repeat applications as needed to maintain control.
Ensure thorough coverage of target areas by increasing water volume with plant growth stage.
Note: Low volume is defined as 400 L or less total spray volume per hectare. High volume is defined as 1000 L or more total spray volume per hectare.

Pest: Heliothis (Budworms) (Helicoverpa spp.), Potato Moth (Phthorimaea operculella)
State: All States
Rate:
Low Volume: 500 mL to 1.4 L SHOWDOWN 375 PLUS  500 g to 1.0 kg Delfin* WG (or other compatible registered Bt product) per ha
High Volume: 50 to 100 mL SHOWDOWN 375 PLUS  50 to 100 g Delfin WG (or other compatible registered Bt product) per 100 L water
WHP: 1 day (H); 21 days (G)
Critical comments: Time application to coincide with egg hatching and closely monitor pest populations. Repeat applications as needed to maintain control.
Ensure thorough coverage of target areas by increasing water volume with plant growth stage.
Note: Low volume is defined as 400 L or less total spray volume per hectare. High volume is defined as 1000 L or more total spray volume per hectare. The lower rates of SHOWDOWN 375 in mixtures with Bt products provide ovicidal control only. Use higher rates of SHOWDOWN 375 when larval control is required. Use the higher rate of Delfin WG when Potato Moth is present.

TOBACCO

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
SHOWDOWN® 375 is a non-systemic insecticide, which means that new growth appearing after application will not be protected against insect attack.
SHOWDOWN 375 is an aqueous suspension concentrate formulation that readily disperses in water for spraying by ground or air equipment. It is unstable under highly acidic or highly alkaline conditions, being hydrolytically sensitive to degradation of active constituent by strong acids, strong bases and certain heavy metals and salts.
DO NOT apply when weather conditions favour drift from the area to be treated.
SHOWDOWN 375 is only moderately rainfast – rain within 3 hours of application may reduce the effectiveness of this product.

MIXING
Agitate or shake container prior to use. Remove oil, rust, scale, pesticide residues and other foreign matter from sprayer and strainer. Flush with clean water. Use 50 mesh or slotted strainer in spray system. Fill tank approximately half full of water, add this product and mix thoroughly by mechanical or hydraulic action. Add water to desired volume and thoroughly mix again.

APPLICATION
This product may be applied by air or ground equipment. Use a minimum prepared spray volume of 20 L/ha by air (30 L/ha for cotton, 50 L/ha for maize or sweetcorn) and 50 L/ha by ground. A droplet density of a minimum 60 droplets per cm2 must be attained. There needs to be some air movement, which preferably should be blowing across the flight path.
After use, drain and flush sprayer with water.

COMPATIBILITY
SHOWDOWN 375 may be mixed with BTK, Dipel* ES, Delfin* WG, and most BT products, and most EC formulations of parathion, endosulfan, profenofos, chlorothalonil, dimethoate and omethoate, demeton-s-methyl, methomyl and monocrotophos.
However, before preparing tank mix combinations, it is advisable to mix a small amount of SHOWDOWN 375 with an equal volume of water in a small container and add the other pesticide. Any mixture which curdles, precipitates or greases should not be used. SHOWDOWN 375 may also be mixed with Dithane* M-45 and copper oxychloride, PROVIDING the mixtures are used within 6 hours. SHOWDOWN 375 is NOT compatible with other copper and manganese based products, zinc based products, Dithane* DF, with LV, ULV or other oil based formulations, or with vegetable oil diluents. As the formulations of other manufacturers’ products are beyond the control of Adama, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
For insecticide resistance management SHOWDOWN 375 is a Group 1A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to SHOWDOWN 375 and other Group 1A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if SHOWDOWN 375 or other Group 1A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of SHOWDOWN 375 on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.
Since the occurrence of resistant insects is difficult to detect prior to use, Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of SHOWDOWN 375 to control resistant insects.
SHOWDOWN 375 may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

PRECAUTIONS
DO NOT allow children access to treated areas. When the product is being applied, human flaggers/markers must be protected by engineering controls such as vehicles with cabs.
Re-entry Period:
Do not allow entry into treated areas for 1 day after treatment. When prior entry is necessary, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and a washable hat, chemical resistant gloves and impervious footwear. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.
