An insecticide for the control of a wide range of insect pests in a range of crops.
An emulsifiable concentrate formulation containing 480 g/l (43.7 % w/w) chlorpyrifos. Also contains xylene.
The main restrictions are listed below. For other restrictions refer to ‘CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION’ section.
Control of soil pests will be reduced in organic soils and when soil temperature remains below 5˚C.
Consult the processor before treating crops intended for processing.
Breakdown of PYRINEX® 48 EC inside glasshouses is very slow and can result in damage to susceptible crops planted several months later (e.g. lettuce, celery, Chinese leaves, chrysanthemums etc.) can result from even a single application of PYRINEX 48 EC at the high concentrations used.
1. Strains of some aphid species are resistant to many aphicides. Where aphids resistant to
products containing chlorpyrifos occur, PYRINEX 48 EC is unlikely to give satisfactory control. Repeat treatments are likely to result in lower levels of control.
2. Pear suckers resistant to one or more groups of insecticides are widespread. Where strains
resistant to products containing organophosphorus insecticides occur,
PYRINEX 48 EC is unlikely to give satisfactory control. Where repeat treatments are necessary, use different active ingredients.
3. Strains of ‘spider mites’ resistant to one or more groups of acaricides are widespread. Where
strains resistant to products containing chlorpyrifos occur, PYRINEX 48 EC is unlikely to give satisfactory control.
PYRINEX 48 EC is an organophosphorus insecticide which has a wide spectrum of activity against many pests. It acts by contact action having activity on both biting insects such as caterpillars and sucking insects
such as aphids.
MIXING AND APPLICATION
Add half the required volume of water to the spray tank. Invert and shake thoroughly the contents of the bottle of PYRINEX 48 EC. Then add the recommended quantity to the spray tank. Agitate while topping up and continue agitation during spraying.
USE IMMEDIATELY. Do not leave sprayer standing with spray mix in it. Always ensure that the sprayer is clean, in good working order and calibrated accurately to the sprayer manufacturers’ recommendations. Thoroughly wash all spray and measuring equipment with water and a wetting agent immediately after use.
On emptying the container, RINSE CONTAINER THOROUGHLY by using an integrated pressure rinsing device or manually rinsing three times. Add washings to sprayer at time of filling and dispose of container safely.
Apply in a minimum of 200 litres per hectare
of water except for vegetables, fruit and non-edible crops where a minimum of 500 L/ha should be used. Low volume applications should not be used. If crop is dense a higher volume of water should
