State: NSW, Vic, Tas, SA, WA only
Rate: 50 g/100 L water (1 measure pack/ 500 L water)
Critical comments: Apply as a full cover spray fortnightly after petal fall. This rate will also suppress Mealy Bug populations present at spraying (except in Tasmania).

AVOCADOS
Pest: Queensland Fruit Fly (Bactrocera tryoni)
State: Qld, NSW, WA only
Rate: 120 g plus 600 mL yeast hydrolysate/ 30 L water

AVOID CONTACT WITH FRUIT.

BANANAS
Pest: Banana Scab Moth
State: Qld only
Rate:
Air Blast: 250 g/125 L water (1 measure pack/ 125 L water) OR 1 or 2 kg/ha (4 or 8 measure packs/ha)
Knapsack: 10 g/5 L water
Critical comments: Apply from the first appearance of flowers and repeat as populations indicate until fingers are exposed.
Air Blast Use 500-1000 L water/ha. Use the high rate with the onset of wet weather and for high insect numbers.

Pest: Banana Weevil Borer
State: Qld, NSW, WA only
Rate: 500 g/100 L water (2 measure packs/100 L water) OR 500 g/4 kg sand (2 measure packs/ 4 kg sand)

AVOID CONTACT WITH FRUIT.

GINGER
Pest: Cutworm (Agrotis spp.)
State: Qld only
Rate: 700 or 900 g/ha
Critical comments: Apply when pest population is evident from damage to the primary shoot (at or below ground) or to the first leaf.

GRAPEVINES
Pest: Light Brown Apple Moth

This treatment is preferred in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs where the use of cover sprays would be too disruptive.

PEARS
Pest: Light Brown Apple Moth

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
For insecticide resistance management STRIKE-OUT® 500 WP Insecticide is a Group 1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to STRIKE-OUT 500 WP and other Group 1B insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if STRIKE-OUT 500 WP or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of STRIKE-OUT 500 WP 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 the failure of STRIKE-OUT 500 WP to control resistant insects. STRIKE-OUT 500 WP may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

Mixing
Spray Mix: One third fill the spray tank with water and add the required number of water soluble pre-packs to the strainer/sieve. Complete filling allowing the remaining water to run over the bags. The bags will completely dissolve in a few minutes.
OR
Add the required number of pre-packs to a mixing bucket and add enough water to completely cover the bags. Stir until the bags are completely dissolved and pour the pre-mix into the spray tank. Triple rinse the bucket and stirring implement, adding the rinse water to the spray tank. Agitate continuously to ensure thorough mixing before and during application. Only mix sufficient chemical for each day’s work.
Tank Mixtures
STRIKE-OUT 500 WP should be added to the partially full spray tank first, followed by dry flowables, suspension concentrates (flowables), aqueous concentrates and then emulsifiable concentrate formulations.
Seed Dressing
Use a respirator with a dust canister, wear elbow-length PVC gloves and cover all bare skin. Half fill the seed box and sprinkle half the powder evenly over the seed. Mix thoroughly with a wooden or metal stirrer. Repeat the process after adding the remaining seed and powder. Only mix in the seed box prior to sowing.
DO NOT store treated seed for later use.

Compatibility
STRIKE-OUT 500 WP is compatible with benomyl, carbendazim, dicofol, dinocap, dodine, fenarimol, mancozeb, thiram, thiophanate-methyl, ziram.

Application
Unless specified, it is essential to apply STRIKE-OUT 500 WP in sufficient water to obtain thorough coverage. Apply through accurately calibrated equipment.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT
Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area or, if this is unavailable onto unused land away from homes and water courses. After using STRIKE-OUT 500 WP, empty the spray equipment completely and drain the whole system. Quarter fill the spray equipment with clean water and circulate through the pump, line, hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat procedure twice.

RE-ENTRY PERIOD
Field crops, tree crops and vines: DO NOT allow entry into treated crops until spray deposits have dried. If prior entry is required, limit duration of entry and wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.
Greenhouses: DO NOT allow entry into greenhouses until spray deposits have dried and treated areas are adequately ventilated. If prior entry is required, limit duration of entry and wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing), chemical resistant gloves and half-facepiece respirator. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.
