DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. All instructions within this section must be carefully read in order to obtain safe and successful use of this product. To reduce effects on non-target insects or other arthropods:For application to cereals: DO NOT SPRAY WITHIN 5 m OF THE FIELD BOUNDARY1 . For application to other arable and vegetable crops using tractor-mounted boom sprayers: Avoid spraying within 5 m of the field boundary1 .For application to pears using broadcast airassisted sprayers: The best available application technique, which minimises off-target drift, should be used. 1 These buffer distances should be measured from the field boundary, which for the purposes of this labelling, is defined as from the edge of non-cropped land (i.e. land taken permanently out of agricultural production, including the 1-2 m strips adjacent to hedgerows and watercourses established under the Single Payment Scheme). Cropped land includes managed buffer strips (e.g. grass strips, wild flower margins and conservation headlands), but since these are usually set up as havens for wildlife it is best practice to minimise spray drift onto them.
 
RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
Strains of some aphid species are resistant to many aphicides. Where aphids resistant to products containing lambda-cyhalothrin occur, HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY is unlikely to give satisfactory control. Repeat treatments are likely to result in lower levels of control.
  
GENERAL INFORMATION
HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY acts by contact, therefore ensure thorough spray cover for good control. Processed Crops: Taint tests have shown that HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY does not taint crops, but growers should consult processors before use.
 
WINTER WHEAT
Yellow cereal fly (Opomyza florum)
Timing: Apply at egg hatch, usually from late January onwards depending on the season. Early emerged crops are most at risk.      Sprays applied for the control of BYDV will also give some control of this pest.

WINTER & SPRING WHEAT
Orange Wheat Blossom Midge (Sitodiplosis mosellana)
HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY can provide a reduction in damage in susceptible crops associated with this  pest.
Timing: Monitoring of adult midge activity is essential to determine the optimum time for treatment. Pheromone traps in the crop should provide the best information on when to spray.  Apply immediately    the threshold numbers of adult egg laying midges are found.  Crops between ear emergence and the start  of flowering (GS Z51-59) can be vulnerable to attack, those at GS Z55 - 57 are most   susceptible.
To achieve the best results HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY should be used before large numbers of eggs are laid, as the product is active against adults. Late application is less likely to be effective and should be avoided. For further information on orange wheat blossom midge, including details on pest thresholds consult the HGCA information sheet on this pest or your local BASIS qualified    agronomist.

Gout Fly (Chlorops tumilionis)
Timing:  Inspect crop regularly from the one leaf stage and apply when the first eggs are   laid.
For maximum effect, treatment must be made before the majority of eggs hatch.  Efficacy will be reduced   if treatment is applied when plant invasion has  started.

Cabbage Stem Flea Beetle
Timing:  Apply in the autumn when feeding damage is first seen on young rape plants to control the  adults. To control the larvae, spray once larvae can be found in the plants, normally late October/early November. Monitor crops carefully for signs of further larvae infestation and apply a second spray if required.     A routine spray in late October/early November can often be justified in known high risk areas.

Beet Western Yellow Virus (Aphid Vectors)
Timing:  Apply as soon as aphids can be found in the crop. A second spray may be needed 3-5 weeks    later if aphids continue to migrate into the crop. Applications made late in the autumn, i.e. from November onwards, may be less effective in controlling the virus if aphid migration and virus transmission had begun several weeksearlier.
HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY applied to control aphid vectors of Beet We stern Yellow Virus will reduce the level of virus in the crop and will also provide good control of Cabbage Stem Flea Beetle adults and larvae depending on their incidence and the period of egg   hatch.
RATE OF USE

WATER VOLUME
200-300l/ha (Use sufficient water volume to ensure thorough crop   penetration)
 
Seed Weevil and Pod Midge
Timing: Applications should be made during the flowering period when seed weevil numbers reach the threshold for spraying. Best results are normally achieved when application coincides with the onset of peak adult activity.  This often occurs between the 20% pod set stage and the end of flowering on the  main raceme (i.e. 75% petal fall across the entire crop). Avoid spraying in the heat of the day when bees are particularlyactive.
For spring sown varieties apply at green to yellow bud stage if seed weevils are present at threshold levels.  Repeat application during flowering if the attack is   prolonged
The latest time of application to winter oilseed rape is the end of flowering and the latest time for spring oilseed rape is six weeks before harvest
RATE OF USE

WATER VOLUME
200-300 l/ha (Use sufficient water volume to ensure thorough crop   penetration)
 
WINTER AND SPRING FIELD BEANS
Pea and Bean Weevil
Timing: For the reduction of leaf notching/feeding damage, apply if there is a risk of severe damage by adult weevils to the growing points of the crop in the early stages of growth. Under high pest pressure a repeat application may be required 2 to 3 weeks after the initial   application.
Where there is a history of severe weevil damage, a first application made at the first signs of adult attack (leaf notching) may be beneficial in some situations
RATE OF USE

200-300 l/ha (Use sufficient water volume to ensure thorough crop   penetration.)
 
POTATOES
Aphids
Timing:
Seed crops: In these crops minimising the spread of viruses e.g. potato virus y (PVY) is usually the prime consideration. Myzus persicae is the main vector of virus diseases in potatoes.  To discourage aphid  feeding (so as to minimise virus transmission) and to control aphids already in the crop use HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY in mixture with either PLENUM WG or APHOX. Observe any label restrictions on the partner product. Where it is suspected that forms of Myzus persicae tolerant to pirimicarb (APHOX) are present a mixture with PLENUM WG is likely to provide the best control. HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY can also provide incidental control of other pests e.g. cutworms if the timing coincides     with that for aphid  control.
Ware crops: Use HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY for the control of Macrosiphum euphorbiae and other aphid pests. Where resistant forms of Myzus persicae are present or suspected HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY should not be used; PLENUM WG is the most suitable alternative for the control of all forms of Myzus persicae. HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY can also provide incidental control of other pests e.g. cutworms if the timing coincides with that for aphid control.

WATER VOLUME
300 - 600 l/ha (Use sufficient water volume to ensure thorough crop   penetration.)
 
Pea Aphid
Timing: Apply to flowering crops according to specialist advice or when thresholds are reached. Repeat if necessary.
Inspect the crop carefully, especially during the early stages of   flowering.
RATE OF USE
50 ml/ha (see notes below)
WATER VOLUME
300 - 600 l/ha (Use sufficient water volume to ensure thorough crop penetration
Notes: HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY will provide effective control of early aphid infestations of pea aphid which are confined to the terminal growing points of the crop and are exposed to spray droplets. For established aphid infestations on the growing points and for aphid infestations which are sheltered within the crop canopy apply HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY in tank mixture with APHOX at 140g/ha.
Where aphids are the only pest present and are well established throughout a crop canopy which is dense   it is preferable to apply APHOX alone at  280g/ha.
 
Pea Midge
Timing: Apply within 3-5 days of the first adult midges being found in the crop. Repeat 7-10 days later if midge activity continues. Sprays can be delayed if the weather is not suitable for midge activity or if the crop is not at a susceptible growth  stage
Note: Consult a crop specialist for advice on application timing and information on midge activity in your area
RATE OF USE

WATER VOLUME
300 - 600 l/ha (Use sufficient water volume to ensure thorough crop   penetration)
 
PEARS
Pear Sucker
Timing: Apply when first sucker eggs are being laid, usually in late February/early March. Should sucker build up in the summer in the absence of predators, apply HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY at the same rate and repeat after 2-3 weeks if necessary.  If predators are present, use ‘Dimilin'   WP.
RATE OF USE
90 ml/ha
WATER VOLUME
200 - 2000 l/ha (Use sufficient water volume to ensure thorough crop   penetration.)Resistance: Pear suckers resistant to one or more groups of insecticides are widespread. Where strains resistant to products containing pyrethroid insecticide occur, HALLMARK WITH ZEON TECHNOLOGY is unlikely to give satisfactory control of this pest. Where repeat treatment is necessary use different active ingredients
