MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Fill tank half full with water. Start agitation.

2. Add required CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE.

3. Complete filling of spray tank with water.

4. Apply a minimum of 200 Litres of spray per hectare for ground application and sufficient volume for uniform application. Higher volumes may be required on larger plants, but avoid run-off, for ground boom application. For vegetable crops and ornamentals, apply sufficient water for uniform, thorough coverage. Consult provincial extension services for detailed spray application volumes as required.

5. Do not exceed 275 kpa, pressure for ground boom application.

PRECAUTIONS FOR AERIAL APPLICATION: (See specific crop sections.)

Use special care in aerial application where damage from drift can be greater. Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment, which has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application, rates and conditions of the label.

Label rates, conditions and precautions are product specific. Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. Apply only at the rate recommended for aerial application on the label. Where no rate for aerial application appears for the specific use, this product cannot be applied by any type of aerial equipment.

Ensure uniform application. To avoid streaked, uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices.

Use Precautions

Apply only when meteorological conditions at the treatment site allow for complete and even crop coverage. Apply only under conditions of good practice specific to aerial application, as outlined in the National Aerial Pesticide Application Manual, developed by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Committee on Pest Management and Pesticides.

Do not apply to any body of water. Avoid drifting of spray onto any body of water or other non-target areas. Specified buffer zones should be observed. Do not contaminate water by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.

Coarse sprays are less likely to drift, therefore, avoid combinations of pressure and nozzle type that will result in fine particles (mist). Do not apply during periods of dead calm or when wind velocity and direction pose a risk of spray drift. Do not spray when the wind is blowing towards a nearby sensitive crop, garden, terrestrial habitat (such as shelter-belt) or aquatic habitat. Do not use human flaggers.

A method must be used to detect air movement, lapse conditions, or temperature inversions (stable air) such as the use of balloons or a continuous smoke column at or near the spray site or a smoke generator on the spray equipment. If the smoke develops into layers or indicates a potential for hazardous spray drift, do not spray. Do not spray in winds exceeding 8 km per hour.

Operator Precautions

Do not allow the pilot to mix chemicals to be loaded onto the aircraft. Loading of premixed chemicals with a closed system is permitted.

It is desirable that the pilot has communication capabilities at each treatment site at the time of application.

The field crew and the mixer/loaders must wear chemical resistant gloves, coveralls and goggles or face shield during mixing/loading, cleanup and repair. Follow the more stringent label precautions in cases where the operator precautions exceed the generic label recommendations on the existing ground boom label.

All personnel on the job site must wash hands and face thoroughly before eating and drinking. Protective clothing, aircraft cockpit and vehicle cabs must be decontaminated regularly.

Product Specific Precautions

Read and understand the entire label and booklet before opening this product. If you have questions, call the manufacturer at 204-233-3461 or obtain technical advice from the distributor or your provincial agricultural representative. Application of this specific product must meet and/or conform to the following:

Volume: A minimum volume of 30 L per hectare of spray solution should be used. Use boom pressure of 235 kpa or less. Avoid placing nozzles where spray will enter wing tip vortices.

Buffer zones: Appropriate buffer zones should be established between treatment areas and aquatic systems and treatment areas and significant wildlife habitat.

House Fly Control

CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE controls houseflies for up to 6 weeks. Use a spray solution containing 25 mL of CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE per litre of water. Repeat applications should be made when necessary. Good sanitation is an essential part of any effective fly control program.

In dairy barns, hog pens, calf barns, poultry houses and other farm buildings: Apply a residual spray to the ceilings, walls, stanchions, etc. Thoroughly wet all fly resting areas to the point of run off. 5-10 litres of spray will cover 100 m2 of surface. For localized spray control apply spot sprays with a knapsack or similar type sprayer to doorways, around windows, counters and other areas frequented by flies.

General outdoor use:

To control house flies around garbage cans, animal quarters, food processing plants, warehouses, loading docks and refuse areas, spray exposed surfaces such as walls, fences, refuse containers and garbage. Exposure of sprayed areas to weather, particularly sunshine, reduces the duration of residual effects. Repeat applications as necessary. Do not apply by air.

IPCO Cygon 480 EC Caution

Remove livestock and poultry from buildings when spraying.

Do not use in milk processing or milk storage rooms. Do not contaminate feed, foodstuffs, feed troughs or drinking fountains.

Do not mix with whitewash or apply within 2 weeks of whitewashing. Do not use in homes.

Ornamental, Crop And Forestry Uses

GENERAL USE PRECAUTIONS:

1. CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE is a true systemic insecticide. A systemic insecticide is absorbed into the system of the plant upon application and, as with all systemic materials, may in specific plants cause reactions, which are neither predicable nor common to all members of the species.

2. FOR PROPER TIMING of treatments for the control of specific pests on ornamental plants, consult local agricultural authorities. In general, apply adequate spray for good coverage when pests appear or when damage is first observed, unless otherwise indicated. Do not overdose or over-spray.

3. EXPERIENCE has shown when dealing with species that may be injured by foliar application, soil drenches are safer on those plants for which they are recommended. When using foliar sprays, do not apply during heat of the day or when temperatures are excessively high.

4. DO NOT USE on ornamental plants not listed. While CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE may not always cause injury to species not listed, injury may occur to individual plants or in local areas.

5. WHEN IN DOUBT about plant safety it is advisable to spray a single branch or dip several leaves in the spray solution. A waiting period of three or four days will usually indicate if plant damage will result.

6. DO NOT SPRAY the following species unless you have tested single branches or leaves to ascertain safety: American Elm, Mop-head Elm, Norway Maple, Mock Orange, Sunburst Locust, Morraine Locust, or other ornamentals not listed in the pamphlet.

7. There has been no report of damage by CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE to any of the common evergreen species grown in Canada provided recommended rates have been followed.

8. This product is toxic to bees. Restrict application to the period after dark when bees are inside the hives, or in the early morning before the bees are foraging in the fields. Do not apply to such crops as alfalfa when in full bloom.

9. Do not use, pour, spill or store near heat or open flame. Keep out of direct sunlight, ship and store between 4°C and 30°C.

10. If this pest control product is to be used on a commodity that may be exported to the U.S. and you require information on acceptable residue levels in the U.S., visit CropLife Canada’s web-site at www.croplife.ca.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS: For resistance management, please note that CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE contains a Group 1B insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE and other Group 1B insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.

To delay insecticide resistance: Where possible, rotate the use of CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE or other Group 1B insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in a field. Use tank mixtures with insecticides from a different group when such use is permitted. Insecticide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices. Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development. Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area. For further information or to report suspected resistance contact Interprovincial Cooperatives Ltd. at (204) 233-3461.

Remarks: Apply by ground or aerial application. If midge population persists at 3 - 7 days apply a second treatment. Use a water volume of at least 100 L/ha with ground equipment and 50 L/ha by air. Higher volume will provide more thorough coverage. If adult midges are present (1 midge/4-5 wheat heads), sprays should be applied when 25% of the wheat head has fully emerged from the boot but before flowering has begun. At this stage, wheat first becomes susceptible to attack by egg-laying females. Applications should be made in the late afternoon or evening when temperatures exceed 15°C and the wind speed is less than 10 km/h. Higher volume sprays will improve penetration of the crop. Proper timing of application is essential for control. Do not apply to areas where bees are actively foraging or near apiaries as product is toxic to bees.

PAINT ON TREATMENT: Mix 1 part CYGON 480 EC SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE with 1 part of water. Paint the mixture in a band around the trunk below the lowest branch. Change the band location with each application. Do not treat birch trees with trunks less than 3 cm in diameter. Newly transplanted birch trees may be injured. For larger trees, the width of the band should be equal to the thickness of the trunk at the location up to a maximum of 15 cm. Make first application in May when leaf bud tips appear green, and the second application in late June in early season areas, and in early July in cooler areas. Do not make more than two treatments per season.
