Insect Pest: Mealybugs
Use: Young non-bearing vines and vines for removal: Apply 1.5 ml/500 ml water/vine as a single drench treatment in autumn or winter to the base of non-bearing replant vines or vines awaiting removal. If rainfall or overhead irrigation is not likely in the 2 days after drenching, apply 2.0 L of water/vine once the drench has soaked in. Treated vines must be clearly identified. Any crop set on treated vines must be destroyed within 10 weeks of fruit set.
Bearing vines: Apply 1.5 ml/500 ml water/vine as a single treatment in the autumn period from post-harvest through to the end of the second week of May. Apply with suitable application equipment as a soil drench; targeting the root area of the vines. Apply in the rain or immediately prior to a rainfall or irrigation event. If rainfall is unlikely or irrigation is not possible, a post-treatment application of up to 2.0L of water over the treated area per vine is recommended.
