For control of various insect pests in certain agricultural and horticultural crops

BEWARE: Pyrinex Insecticide must not be applied in a manner that results in adverse effects beyond the intended boundary of the application area. A strategy to avoid spray drift must be employed at all times. Details of spray drift mitigation measures must be recorded as part of the application records. Ensure compliance with relevant regional air management plants.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
DO NOT APPLY MORE THAN 3.1L PER HECTARE PER CROP CYCLE

LUCERNE
Pest: Aphids
Rate/ha: 300-450 mL

Pest: Sitona Weevil
Rate/ha: 600-800 mL in 100-200 L water

Rate/ha: 500 mL
Critical Comments: Apply immediately damage is first seen and repeat if necessary 14-21 days later. 

Pest: Cutworm
Rate/ha: 600 mL
Critical Comments: Use in sufficient water for complete coverage of the seedlings and surrounding soil. Spray in the evening at first sign of damage.

PASTURE
Pest: Army Caterpillar
Rate/ha: Ground application 400 mL in 100-200 L water Aerial application 400 mL in 50-100 L water

Pest: Tasmanian Grass Grub
Rate/ha: 1.25-1.5 L in 100-200 L water
Critical Comments: Apply to short dry pasture between April and June at first signs of pasture damage. Harrowing of dung patches is recommended prior to spraying, to expose the larvae. Use higher rates when population is large

Pest: Argentine stem weevil
Rate/ha: 1.25 L in 100-200 L of water/ha
Critical Comments: Apply as soon as eggs are found on the lower leaf sheaf.

CEREALS
Pest: Cereal, Rose and Grain Aphid 
Rate/ha: 300-400 mL 
Critical Comments: Apply at first sign of infestation. Use the high rate when infestation pressure is high or the crop is dense.

RYEGRASS/CEREALS
Pest: Argentine Stem Weevil
Rate/ha: 1.25 L
Critical Comments: Apply as soon as eggs are present on the lower leaf sheath.

HORTICULTURAL CROPS

AVOCADO
Pest: Leafroller
Rate/ha: 50-75 mL/ 100 L water
Critical Comments: Apply as a high volume spray to run off. Apply pre-flowering, at complete petal fall, then at 21 day intervals until late April, or after April if Leafroller is still present.

Rate/ha: Aerial application: 1.7 L/ha
Critical Comments: Use sufficient water for good coverage. Apply preflowering, at complete petal fall, then at 21 day intervals until late April, or after April if Leafroller is still present.

BRASSICAS AND FORAGE CROPS

Critical Comments: Apply to seedling crops as soon as damage is apparent or when nymphs can be seen feeding on seedlings

Pest: Springtails
Rate/ha: 200 mL/ha in 50-200 L water/ha
Critical Comments: Apply 1-2 days before crop emergence or as soon as damage is first noticed.

GRAPES
Pest: Grape vine weevil, Aphids, Leafroller, Mealy Bug, Scale Crawlers and Thrips
Rate/ha: 50-75 mL/ 100-200 L water
Critical Comments: Use the higher rate for Mealy Bug control or when insect pressure is high. Apply at bud swell (with intermediate oil), pre-flowering, post-flowering and 14 days later, then every 21 days until harvest. Ensure complete plant coverage and penetration into bunches for optimum control of mealy bug.

KIWIFRUIT
