For the control of insect pests including heliothis (Helicoverpa spp.) on various crops and redlegged earth mite and blue oat mite on certain field crops and pastures and certain pests on fruit and vegetable crops as specified in the directions for use table.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
RESTRAINTS: DO NOT APPLY IF RAINFALL IS EXPECTED WITHIN 6 HOURS OF APPLICATION
Asparagus: - DO NOT apply more than 6 times per season.
NOTE: This product is ineffective against synthetic pyrethroid-resistant Helicoverpa armigera larvae longer than 5 mm. All Helicoverpa armigera in NSW and Qld should be treated as being resistant to synthetic pyrethroids. Refer to Resistance Management under General Instructions. This product is ineffective against pyrethroid-resistant Plutella xylostella.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
This product is a contact and residual insecticide. It can be used as a protective treatment when applied at regular intervals or as a knockdown treatment to control existing larvae. Best results will be obtained by spraying at egg hatch. Thorough coverage is essential to ensure adequate control. Apply during the cooler parts of the day.
The product can be applied in two ways:
1. Mixed with water OR
2. Mixed with oil based bulking agents such as D-C-Tron Cotton Spray Oil or other compatible ULV products.

APPLICATION – Grapevines, pome and stone fruit
Dilute Spraying
- Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of runoff and matched to the stage of growth of crop being sprayed.
- Calibrate and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy. Apply sufficient water to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off.
- The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or specialist advice.
- Add the amount of product specified in the Directions for Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off.
- The required dilute spray volume, sprayer calibration and operation may all need to be changed, as the crop grows.
Concentrate Spraying
- Use a sprayer designed and calibrated for concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies water volumes less than those required to reach the point of run-off) and matched to the stage of crop being sprayed.
- Calibrate 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:
Example only
1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha
2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha
3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)
4. If the dilute label rate is 100 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 100 that is 300 g/100 L of concentrate spray.
- The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L 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.
Low Volume and High volume applications by ground rig or when the product is applied with water as a carrier
UniChoice 100 EC Insecticide can be applied by ground or aircraft with a water carrier. Thorough coverage is essential to ensure adequate control. Always apply with a non-ionic surfactant unless detailed on the label of the tank mix partner. Apply during the cooler parts of the day or night.
Ground Application – water carrier
For low volume spraying of field crops with ground rigs, use a total volume of 50-200 L/ha except for sweet corn, tomatoes and tobacco where higher volumes
should be used. Drop arms should be used on ground rigs in row crops taller than 30 cm (0.3 m). The application should be made as a fine spray, preferably using hollow cone nozzles and a droplet size of 150-200 microns unless otherwise recommended in the Critical Comments.
Aerial Application – water carrier
DO NOT apply to trellis tomatoes by aircraft.
Use at least 20 L/ha of total spray volume.
For spring/early summer applications to cereals, linola, canola, rice and to other dense crops, apply in a total spray volume of 30 to 35L/ha. If possible, spray in a cross wind. Avoid spraying in calm conditions or when wind is light and variable in direction. Apply as a spray of 100-150 microns VMD.
Ultra Low Volume (ULV) application by aircraft
UniChoice 100 EC Insecticide mixed with D-C-Tron Cotton Spray Oil or other compatible products should be applied in a minimum total spray volume of 1.5 L/ha. It should only be applied by aircraft with suitable equipment to provide a droplet size of approximately 80-100 microns VMD. Applications should be made during the cooler parts of the day or at night. Avoid application in calm or very windy conditions. Preferably apply in light to moderate cross winds.

MIXING
Low volume and high volume applications by ground rig when UniChoice 100 EC is applied with a water carrier.
Add the required amount of UniChoice 100 EC to water in the spray tank and mix thoroughly. Maintain agitation during mixing and application.
Ultra Low Volume (ULV) application by aircraft when the product is applied with oil based bulking agents
This product can be mixed with D-C-Tron Cotton Spray Oil or other compatible products (see Compatibility Section).
Add the mixing partner to the spray tank first, engage agitation system and add the required amount of UniChoice 100 EC Insecticide direct to the spray tank. DO NOT mix with water to ensure there is no water in the spraying system.

COMPATIBILITY
Low Volume and High Volume Application by ground rig or aircraft when UniChoice 100 EC Insecticide is applied with water as a carrier
This product is compatible with D-C-Trate, D-C-Tron Cotton Spray Oil, Synertrol, Ulvapron, mancozeb (1), dicamba, dicofol, copper hydroxide, methomyl, parathion methyl, chlorpyrifos, metalaxyl, Wuxal, clethodim, dimethoate, paraquat, diquat, glyphosate, Tigrex, Jaguar, simazine, imazethapyr, 2,4-D Amine, 2,4-D Ester, 2,4- DB, MCPA and Coptrol.
DO NOT mix this product with wettable powders and water dispersible granules BEFORE addition to the spray tank.
(1) This product can be mixed with mancozeb WP and WG formulations provided the mixture is agitated efficiently and used immediately.
Ultra Low Volume by aircraft
This product should only be mixed with specific ULV formulations of other insecticides eg methomyl, chlorpyrifos 300, and PBO synergists, when mixed according to the directions on the PBO synergist labels.
