GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
VENOM 100 EC Insecticide 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 pests.
Best results are obtained when VENOM 100 EC is applied before pest populations build up to damaging levels.
This product is not suitable for use in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programme where mite predators are established and providing effective mite control.

Application
VENOM 100 EC may be applied by either ground or aircraft. Thorough coverage is essential to ensure adequate control.
DO NOT apply as a fog or mist.
1. Tree and Vine Crops
Dilute Spraying
Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of run-off and matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up 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 expert 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 will change and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.
Concentrate Spraying
Use a sprayer designed and set up for the 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 crop being sprayed. Set up 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: 3x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).
4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x10, that is 30 mL/100 L of concentrate spraying.
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.
2. Other Crops
Ground Application: Applications should be made as a fine spray preferably using hollow cone nozzles and a droplet size of 150 to 200 microns. The application volume will depend on the type of crop to be treated. The following are suggested:
Low volume broadacre applications to – e.g. cereals, canola, grain legumes, lucerne, subterranean clover: 50-200 L/ha.
Low volume row crops applications to cotton, tomatoes, navy beans: 50-200 L/ha.
High volume applications to row crops – e.g. trellised tomatoes: 200-1000 L/ha except as noted in critical comments. Use 200 L/ha from transplanting increasing to 1000 L/ha at maturity.
Grapes: Apply by hand application, using a high volume coarse spray of 500mL/vine. (e.g. at approx. 2500 vines/ha = 1250L/ha)
High volume application to stone fruit: 1000 to 2000 L/ha.
Foliar sprays to bananas: 300 to 500 L/ha

Soil Applied Sprays
High Volume Application
Bananas:
Stool treatment: Apply as a coarse spray at 500-750 mL per stool.
Band treatment: Apply as a band application with a side delivery boom and offset nozzles – 1 L of spray solution per stool.
Citrus: Apply as a high volume, directed spray to the ground under each tree. For optimum control apply to both sides of the tree. Total spray volume should be 5 to 10 L/tree (e.g. at 250 trees/ha = 1250 to 2500L/ha).

In furrow Applications
Cotton & Sugarcane: Use a coarse spray: 60 to 100 L/ha as a band over the seed or sett before covering with soil – refer to critical comments for details.

Aerial Applications
Use at least 20 L/ha of total spray volume. Spray during the cooler parts of the day or night. To reduce possibility of drift avoid spraying in calm conditions or when wind is light and variable. Preferably, spray in a crosswind. Use suitable application equipment and/or nozzles to deliver a fine spray with a droplet size of 150 to 200 microns.
A spraydrift minimisation strategy should be employed at all times when aerially applying sprays to, or near, sensitive areas. The strategy envisaged is best exemplified by the cotton industry’s Best Management Practice manual.

MONITORING
Post-emergence monitoring of Citrus Leafeating Weevil populations: At first sign of major beetle emergence in mid-October commence monitoring at 1 to 2 week intervals.
Place polystyrene fruit box (330 x 480 mm) under tree, shake branches vigorously, repeat on ten randomly selected trees throughout orchid. If 25 beetles or more are recorded in consecutive counts, treatment is required.

MIXING
Add the required quantity of VENOM 100 EC to water in the spray tank and mix thoroughly. Maintain agitation during mixing and application.

COMPATIBILITY
VENOM 100 EC is compatible with commonly used fungicides such as Antracol†, Fung-o-nil®, and the herbicides Sprayseed†, Broadstrike†, Spinnaker†, Simazine 500, Clincher®, Metribuzin, Wipe-Out®, Lonestar® and Stomp†.

SURFACTANTS
Additional surfactant may only be necessary on hard to wet plants and in high volume situations. Wetspay 1000 is recommended at label rates.
NOTICE: Helicoverpa (= Heliothis) armigera resistance in Northern NSW and Qld. To help contain pyrethroid resistance in H. armigera, the Summer Crop Insecticide strategy as developed by the Qld Department of Primary Industries and NSW Agriculture should be adhered to. Failure to observe the strategy may result in widespread resistance affecting the future viability of summer cropping.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
VENOM® 100 EC Insecticide is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to VENOM 100 EC and other Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if VENOM 100 EC or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of VENOM 100 EC 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 VENOM 100 EC to control resistant insects.
VENOM 100 EC may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

STONE FRUIT EXPORT ADVICE
Export of Treated Stone Fruit – Some export markets do not have suitable Maximum Residue Limits or import tolerances in place. Please contact Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. or the Australian Fresh Stone Fruit Growers Association prior to using this product on crops destined for export.

RE-ENTRY TO TREATED FIELDS/CROPS
do not re-enter treated field/crop until spray deposits have dried, unless wearing suitable protective clothing (ie. waterproof hat, overalls, boots and gloves).
