DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Restraints:
DO NOT apply if rain is expected within 2 hours of application
DO NOT apply if wind speed is less than 3km and more than 20km per hour or under conditions where temperature inversions may occur
DO NOT apply more than 2 applications per field per season. Ensure a minimum of 7 days between sequential applications.

Spray Drift Restraints:
DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than a MEDIUM spray droplet size category according to nozzle manufacturer specifications that refer to the ASAE S572 Standard or the BCPC Guideline.
DO NOT apply when wind speed is less than 3 or more than 20 kilometres per hour as measured at the application site.
DO NOT apply during surface temperature inversion conditions at the application site.
Users of this product MUST make an accurate written record of the details of each spray application within 24 hours following application and KEEP this record for a minimum of 2 years. The spray application details that must be recorded are: 1 date with start and finish times of application; 2 location address and paddock/s sprayed; 3 full name of this product; 4 amount of product used per hectare and number of hectares applied to; 5 crop/situation and weed/pest; 6 wind speed and direction during application; 7 air temperature and relative humidity during application; 8 nozzle brand, type, spray angle, nozzle capacity and spray system pressure measured during application; 9 name and address of person applying this product. (Additional record details may be required by the state or territory where this product is used.)

Mandatory No-Spray Zones
DO NOT apply if there are aquatic and wetland areas including aquacultural ponds, surface streams and rivers downwind from the application area and within the mandatory no-spray zones shown in the following table:

FOR AERIAL APPLICATION
Wind Speed Range at Time of Application: 
from 3 to 8 kilometres per hour
Downwind Mandatory No-Spray Zone
Fixed wing: 
100 metres
Helicopter: 80 metres

Wind Speed Range at Time of Application: from 8 to 14 kilometres per hour
Downwind Mandatory No-Spray Zone
Fixed wing: 
100 metres
Helicopter: 80 metres

Critical Comments: This product is highly toxic to bees. Avoid application when bees are actively foraging. DO NOT introduce commercial bee hives for 5 days following application.

COTTON
Pest: Cotton Bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera), Native Budworm (Helicoverpa punctigera)
Rate/ha: 150 to 250 g plus surfactant (a non-ionic surfactant or an organo-silicon surfactant at 200 mL/100L spray volume)
Critical Comments: Apply at the brown egg to early instar stages, (up to 2nd instar larvae - very small to small), when economic thresholds have
been met. DO NOT target larvae greater than 5mm.
Use the high rate to achieve longer residual control or when targeting high egg and/or larvae pressure at levels in excess of spray thresholds (where potential for > 3.5 larvae per metre row exists).
Applications should be before larvae are entrenched in protected feeding sites

Pest: Cotton Aphid (Aphis gossypii), Green Peach Aphid (Myzus persicae)
Rate/ha: 250 g plus surfactant (a non-ionic surfactant or an organo-silicon surfactant at 200 mL/100L spray volume)
Critical Comments: Apply to aphid populations in the early stage of development and before honeydew development. Thorough spray coverage is essential.
If a Group 4A insecticide has been used on planting seed the first foliar spray targeting aphids should be a product from an alternative mode of action group (e.g Pirimor®, Fulfill® or Pegasus®)

Pest: Suppression of Brockenback Bug (Taylorilygus pallidulus), Green Mirid (Creontiades dilutus), Vegetable Jassid (Austroasca viridigrisea), Yellow Mirid (Campylomma liebknechti)
Rate/ha: 250 g plus surfactant (a non-ionic surfactant or an organo-silicon surfactant at 200 mL/100L spray volume) 
Critical Comments: Apply when populations reach economic thresholds.
If pest pressure remains high additional control measures may be required from 7 days after application

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER, CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

WITHHOLDING PERIODS:
Harvest: DO NOT HARVEST FOR 28 DAYS AFTER APPLICATION.
Grazing: DO NOT ALLOW LIVESTOCK TO GRAZE CROPS, COTTON STUBBLE OR GIN TRASH TREATED WITH VOLIAM FLEXI.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Mixing
Add the required amount of VOLIAM FLEXI to clean water in half-filled spray tank with the agitator or by-pass in operation. Maintain agitation while filling tank with remainder of water. Agitate whilst spraying.

Application
To be effective, VOLIAM FLEXI requires thorough spray coverage. Ensure that equipment is properly calibrated to give an even distribution at the correct volume:
Ground Application: Apply in a minimum of 100L/ha
Aerial Application: Apply in a minimum of 30L/ha

Compatibility
As formulations of other manufacturer’s products are beyond the control of Syngenta, and water quality varies with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing or using commercial quantities.

GROUP 4A 28 INSECTICIDE

Insecticide Resistance Warning
For insecticide resistance management VOLIAM FLEXI Insecticide is a Group 4A and Group 28 insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to VOLIAM FLEXI and other Group 4A and/or Group 28 insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if VOLIAM FLEXI or other Group 4A and/or Group 28 insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of VOLIAM FLEXI on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Syngenta Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from failure of VOLIAM FLEXI to control resistant insects. VOLIAM FLEXI may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your supplier, Syngenta representative or local agricultural department agronomist.
The following practices are recommended to prevent or delay the development of insecticide resistance to VOLIAM FLEXI.
- Use VOLIAM FLEXI in accordance with the current Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy for the region in which it is to be applied.
- When using VOLIAM FLEXI for the control of labelled pests the Insecticide Resistance Management Strategies for other susceptible pests at sub-threshold populations should be noted before making the decision to spray.
- Cultivate cotton crop residues as soon as possible after picking, but no later than the end of August, to destroy overwintering Helicoverpa. armigera pupae.

Aphid Resistance Management
Aphicides from the same chemical group should not be applied consecutively. DO NOT apply more than two applications of a product from the same chemical group in one season. For managing aphid resistance, organophosphates and carbamates should be regarded as the same chemical group. The first aphicide application of the season must be from a different chemical group than the last aphicide application of the previous season. If a neonicotinod seed treatment such as Cruiser is used, the first aphid spray of the season must not be VOLIAM FLEXI or any other product containing a Group 4A insecticide.
