P8120

Fipronil, the active ingredient of ALBATROSS is a phenylpyrazole insecticide which controls susceptible insects by direct contact with the spray and particularly by ingestion when insects feed on treated surfaces. It acts on the nervous system and is effective against insects that have developed resistance to other chemical groups.

ALBATROSS is recommended for control of Kelly’s citrus thrip in citrus, diamond backed moth and white butterfly in vegetable brassicas, thrips in onions and flies in cultivated mushrooms.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

CITRUS
Pest: Kelly’s citrus thrip
Rate: 10mL in 100L water
Comments: Apply in a high volume spray to the point of runoff. Apply at the end of flowering and repeat at 14 day intervals during the 6-8 week period following flowering. DO NOT apply to trees in flower if they are likely to be visited by bees. Resistance Management: DO NOT make more than 4 applications in any one season.

VEGETABLE BRASSICAS
Pest: Diamondback moth White butterfly
Rate: 120mL in approximately 500L water per hectare. Use a suitable non-ionic surfactant.
Comments: Treatments should commence in response to scouting thresholds and be repeated at 7-10 day intervals depending on insect pressure and weather conditions. Spray to achieve even coverage to the point of run off. Resistance Management: DO NOT apply more than four times in any one cropping season. ALBATROSS is compatible with a wide range of fungicides, insecticides, surfactants and foliar fertilisers used in vegetable brassicas. If unsure, seek advice before use.

ONIONS
Pest: Thrips
Rate: 150-200mL in about 500L water per hectare. Use a suitable surfactant.
Comments: Spray to achieve even coverage to the point of run off. Treatments should commence in response to scouting thresholds and be repeated at 7-10 day intervals, depending on thrip numbers and weather conditions, as a cluster of 3 or 4 sequential sprays. Resistance Management: DO NOT apply more than four times in any one cropping season.

CULTIVATED MUSHROOMS
Pest: Mushroom flies (sciarids, cecids and phorids)
Rate: 16mL per 300 litre bale of peat moss

WITHHOLDING PERIODS
Citrus 42 Days – Ensure that the withholding period is strictly adhered to especially in multi-flowering crops such as lemons. Vegetable Brassicas 7 Days
Onions 3 Days
Mushrooms 14 Days

MIXING:
Shake the ALBATROSS container well before use. Add the required quantity of ALBATROSS to a half-filled spray tank of clean water while agitating. Add tank mixture products separately and ensure that each is thoroughly mixed in the spray tank before the next is added. Before adding a surfactant make sure the water level is over two thirds full. Continue agitation during spraying and before spraying after a stoppage.

TOXIC TO BEES:
Spray must not be applied to plants in flower if they are likely to be visited by bees. Risk to bees is reduced by spraying in the late evening when bees are not foraging.

AQUATIC ORGANISMS:
ALBATROSS is toxic to aquatic organisms so a strategy to minimise spray drift should be used at all times when applying spray near aquatic environments. Prevent spillage or washings entering waterways.
