Domestic Use |
||For the control of certain insect pests, including heliothis (Helicoverpa spp.) on various crops and red legged earth mite and blue oat mite on certain field crops and pastures and certain insect pests on fruit and vegetable crops.
||This product is a contact and residual insecticide. It can be used as a protective treatment when applied at regular intervals or as a knockdown treatment to control existing larvae. Best results will be obtained by spraying at egg hatch. Thorough coverage is essential to ensure adequate control. Apply during the cooler parts of the day.|
The product can be applied in two ways:
1. mixed with water OR
2. mixed with oil based bulking agents such as D-C-Ton Cotton Spray Oil or other compatible ULV products.
Low Volume and High volume applications by ground rig or when the product is applied with water as a carrier Add the required quantity to water in the spray tank and mix thoroughly. Maintain agitation during mixing and application.
Ultra Low Volume (ULV) application by aircraft when the product is applied with oil based bulking agents This product can be mixed with D-C-Tron Cotton Spray Oil or other compatible products (see Compatibility Section).
Add the mixing partner to the spray tank first, engage agitation system and add the required amount of AlphaSip Duo Insecticide direct to the spray tank. DO NOT mix with water to ensure there is no water in the spraying system.
APPLICATION - Grapevines, pome and stone fruit
Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of
water up to the point of run-off and matched to the stage of growth of crop being sprayed. Calibrate and operate the
sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy. Apply sufficient water to cover the crop to the point of run-
off. Avoid excessive run-off. The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using
different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or specialist advice. Add the amount of product specified in
the Directions for Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off. The required dilute spray volume,
sprayer calibration and operation may all need to be changed, as the crop grows.
Use a sprayer
designed and calibrated for concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies water volumes less than those required to
reach the point of run-off) and matched to the stage of crop being sprayed. Calibrate and operate the sprayer to achieve
even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen water volume. Determine an appropriate diiute spray volume (See
Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calcuiate the concentrate mixing rate. The mixing rate for
concentrate spraying can then be calculated in the following way:
Dilute spray volume as determined
above: For example 1500 L/ha. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha. The concentration factor in this
example is: 3 X (ie 1500 L / 500 L =3). If the dilute label rate is 100 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10O,
that is 300 g/100 L of concentrate spray. The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water, and the sprayer
set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows. For further information on concentrate spraying, users are
advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and foliow industry Best
Practices. For concentrate application, use a spray volume of at least 200 litres per hectare. For dilute application,
apply to run-off. See dilute spraying above.
APPLICATION - Crops other than grapevines. pome and stone fruit
Low Volume and High volume applications by ground rig or when the product is applied with water as a carrier. AlphaSip Duo
can be applied by ground or aircraft with a water carrier. Thorough coverage is essential to ensure adequate control.
Always apply wrth a non-ionic surfactant unless detailed on the label of the tank mix partner. Apply during the cooler
parts of the day or night.
Ground Application - water carrier
For low volume spraying of field crops with ground
rigs, use a total volume of 50-200 L/ha except for sweet corn, tomatoes and tobacco where higher volumes should be used.
Drop arms should be used on ground rigs in row crops taller than 30cm (0.3m). The application should be made as a fine
spray, preferably using hollow cone nozzles and a droplet size of 1S0-200 microns unless otherwise recommended in the
Critical Comments. Aerial Application - water carrier
DO NOT apply to trellis tomatoes by aircraft. Use at least 20 Uha
of total spray volume. For spring/eariy summer applications to cereals, linola, canola, rice and to other dense crops,
apply in a total spray volume of 30 to 35L/ha. If possible, spray in a cross wind. Avoid spraying in calm conditions or
when wind is light and variable in direction. Apply as a spray of 100-150 microns VMD.
Ultra Low Volume (ULV)
application by aircraft
AlphaSip Duo Insecticide mixed with D-C-Tron Cotton Spray Oil, D-C-Trate, Synertrol+, Ulvapron+
or other compatible products should be applied in a minimum total spray volume of 1.5Uha. It should only be applied by
aircraft with surtable equipment to provide a droplet size of approximately 60-100 microns VMD. Applications should be made
during the cooler parts of the day or at night. Avoid application in calm or very windy conditions. Preferably apply in
light to moderate cross winds.

||DO NOT APPLY IF RAINFALL IS EXPECTED WITHIN 6 HOURS OF APPLICATION
NOTE: This product is ineffective against synthetic pyrethroid-resistant Helicoverpa armigera larvae longer than 5mm. All HHelicoverpa armigera in NSW and Qld should be treated as being resistant to synthetic pyrethroids. Refer to Resistance Management under General Instructions. This product is ineffective against pyrethroid-resistant HPlutella xylostella.
||For insecticide resistance management AlphaSip Duo Insecticide is a Group 3A insecticide.
Some naturally-occurring insect biotypes resistant to AlphaSip Duo Insecticide and other Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if AlphaSip Duo Insecticide or other Group 3A Insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of AlphaSip Duo Insecticide on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since the occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of AlphaSip Duo Insecticide to control resistant insects.
AlphaSip Duo Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd representative or local department of agriculture agronomist.
Helicoverpa armigera resistance Northern NSW and Qld - To help contain pyrethroid resistance in Helicoverpa armigera,, the Summer Crop Insecticide Resistance Strategy as developed by Avcare Insecticide Resistance Strategy Action Committee, The QDPI and the NSW Department of Agriculture and Fisheries should be adhered to. Failure to observe the strategy may result in widespread resistance affecting the future viability of summer cropping.
