DO NOT spray any plants in flower while bees are actively foraging.
Except for applications to cotton, DO NOT apply with aircraft.

BROCCOLI, BRUSSELS SPROUTS, CABBAGES, CAULIFLOWER
Pest: Diamondback Moth (Cabbage Moth) (Plutella xylostella), Cabbage White Butterfly (Pieris rapae)
Rate: 650 to 780mL/ha
Critical comments: Spray at first signs of insect infestation as indicated by local spray thresholds. Use the lower rate on low to moderate infestations.
Add Wetspray® 1000 at the appropriate label rate.
DO NOT make more than 4 applications to any brassica crop.
Where more than one crop is grown DO NOT make more than 4 applications of WARLOCK® in any one year.
WARLOCK should be used according to CropLife resistance management strategies.

CAPSICUMS, LETTUCE
Pest: Heliothis (Helicoverpa armigera, Helicoverpa punctigera)
Rate: 390 to 650 mL/ha
Critical comments: Spray at first signs of insect infestation as indicated by local spray thresholds. For best results apply soon after the Helicoverpa eggs have hatched.
DO NOT apply more than 4 sprays of WARLOCK per crop. Where more than once crop is grown per year DO NOT apply more than 4 sprays per year.
Ensure thorough spray coverage. Use the lower rate when targeting light infestations of small larvae. Use 650 mL/ha during periods of heavy insect pressure or under very hot and sunny conditions.
WARLOCK should be used according to CropLife resistance management strategies.

COTTON
State:
Qld, NSW, WA, NT only
Pest: Heliothis (Helicoverpa armigera, Helicoverpa punctigera)
Rate: 550 mL/ha or 700 mL/ha Add a non-ionic surfactant at recommended label rate
Critical comments: Timing is important. For best results apply at or just prior to the anticipated time of hatching of Helicoverpa eggs as indicated by egg levels or scouting.
As earlier larval stages are easier to control, DO NOT target larvae larger than 5 mm (very small to small). Large larvae and larvae feeding within bolls and squares may not be controlled.
Larvae must feed on treated areas in order to achieve effective control. Where high egg lays occur the addition of an ovicide is
recommended.
Use the lower rate on light infestations. Make no more than 4 applications per season. WARLOCK should be used in accordance with the cotton Best Management Practices Manual.

Pest: Green Mirids (Creontiades dilutes) Suppression only
Rate: 550 mL/ha or 700 mL/ha Add a non-ionic surfactant at recommended label rate
Critical comments: Apply to developing Green Mirid populations that are predominantly nymphs. Maximum effect is not achieved until 5 to 7 days after application. Use the higher rate on heavier populations.

GRAPES
(except grapes grown for dried fruit production)
Pest: Light Brown Apple Moth, Grapevine Moth
Rate:
Dilute Spraying: 40 mL/100 L
Concentrate Spraying: Refer to the Mixing/Application section
Critical comments: DO NOT apply after bunch closure. For optimal control of Light Brown Apple Moth apply soon after egg lay when larvae are small in size and before larvae become webbed into the bunches. Eggs laid after application on new growth may not be controlled.
For Grapevine Moth control, spray when local threshold levels have been reached.
Monitor pest levels after application, a further application may be required (minimum re-treatment interval: 7-14 days).
Apply by dilute or concentrate spraying equipment.
Apply a maximum of 2 applications. Ensure thorough coverage.
Apply the same amount of product to the target crop whether applying this product by dilute or concentrate spraying methods.

SWEET CRON
Pest: Heliothis (Helicoverpa armigera, Helicoverpa punctigera)
Rate: 390 to 650 mL/ha or 39 to 65 mL/100 L (dilute spraying for Trellised Tomatoes)
Concentrate Spraying: Refer to the Mixing/Application section
Critical comments: Spray at first signs of insect infestation as indicated by local spray thresholds. For best results apply soon after the Helicoverpa eggs have hatched.
DO NOT apply more than 4 sprays of WARLOCK per crop. Where more than one crop is grown per year DO NOT apply more than 4 sprays per year. Ensure thorough spray coverage.
Use the lower rate when targeting light infestations of small larvae.
Use 650 mL/ha during periods of heavy insect pressure or under very hot and sunny conditions.
Trellised Tomatoes: In the case of dilute spraying (mL/100 L) apply in the range of 400 to 500 L/ha after transplanting and increase to 800 to 1000 L/ha at full canopy.
WARLOCK should be used according to CropLife resistance management strategies.

EXPORT TRADE ADVICE
Treated crop commodities destined for export may require extra time being allowed between application and harvest, as some export markets have either no Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) or different MRLs to those of Australia. Details of overseas standards and any export interval can be obtained by contacting Adama Australia Pty Ltd before using this product.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
MIXING
Add the required amount of WARLOCK to a partly filled spray tank, and then add the remainder of the water.

APPLICATION
WARLOCK is not systemic. To be effective, WARLOCK requires thorough spray coverage. Ensure that equipment is properly calibrated to give an even distribution at the correct volume.
Cotton:
Ground Application: Apply in at least 100 L spray volume per hectare.
Air Application: Apply in at least 20 L spray volume per hectare.
Brassica Vegetables: Apply WARLOCK in a minimum of 400 L water per hectare.
Capsicum, Lettuce, Sweet Corn and Tomatoes: Ensure thorough coverage of the crop.
Grapes: Apply WARLOCK in a minimum of 250 L water per hectare.
Mixing/Application: Grapes and Trellised Tomatoes
Dilute Spraying
Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of runoff 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 runoff. Avoid excessive runoff. 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 runoff. 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 concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies water volumes less than those required to reach the point of runoff) 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 concentrate factor in this example is 3X (ie. 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)
4. If the dilute label rate is 125 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 125, that is 375 mL/100 L of the concentrate spray.
The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water, and the sprayer set and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows. For further information of concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.

COMPATIBILITY
As formulations of other manufacturer’s products are beyond the control of Adama Australia, and the quality of water may vary with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
For insecticide resistance management WARLOCK® INSECTICIDE is a Group 6 insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to WARLOCK and other Group 6 insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if WARLOCK or other Group 6 insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of WARLOCK 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 WARLOCK to control resistant insects. WARLOCK may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama Australia representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

RESISTANCE
Experience has shown that repeated use of one particular insecticide or insecticides from the same chemical group can lead to the early development of insect resistance to that insecticide or chemical group. Therefore WARLOCK should not be applied more than the following number of times per season/crop/year:
Brassica Vegetables, Capsicum, Lettuce, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes: Four sprays per season/year.
Grapes: Two sprays per season.
Cotton: Four sprays per season.

PRECAUTION
Human flagging is not supported unless flaggers are protected by engineering controls such as vehicles with cabs.

RE-ENTRY PERIOD
DO NOT enter treated areas until the spray has dried, unless wearing cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.
