Resistance Warning

 

For insecticide resistance management CYREN 500 EC INSECTICIDE is a Group 1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to CYREN 500 EC INSECTICIDE and other Group 1B insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if CYREN 500 EC INSECTICIDE or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of CYREN 500 EC INSECTICIDE on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova Pty Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of CYREN 500 EC INSECTICIDE to control insects. CYREN 500 EC INSECTICIDE may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Cheminova representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

HIGHLY TOXIC TO BIRDS AND REPTILES. VERY HIGHLY TOXIC TO FISH AND AQUATIC INVERTEBRATES.

 

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical, used containers or bags which have held treated seed.

 

DO NOT apply if heavy rains or storms that are likely to cause surface runoff are forecast in the immediate area within 2 days of application.

 

DO NOT apply when irrigating, or to waterlogged soil, or while water remains on the surface or in furrows, unless tail water is captured on farm.

 

DO NOT allow contaminated runoff water from treated paddocks to enter adjacent areas or water bodies. Runoff contaminated by irrigation events (tailwater) and a 25 mm rain storm should be captured on farm for 2 days after application.

 

Spray drift may occur under adverse meteorological conditions or from certain spray equipment. DO NOT allow spray to drift onto sensitive areas including, but not limited to, natural streams, rivers or waterways and human dwellings. A spray drift management strategy such as those in the Best Management Practices Manual for Cotton Growers or the Pilot and Operators Manual should be applied.

 

Options for minimising drift to sensitive areas include not spraying within a certain distance of sensitive areas when the wind is blowing towards them (see table for guidance) or ensuring that drifting spray will be intercepted by a catching surface such as a row of shelter trees, an unsprayed row of orchard trees, or hail netting.

 

Orchard (dormant trees, citrus, large trees) - buffer distance - 30 m.

 

Cotton (aerial application) - buffer distance - 300 m

 

Other crops (aerial application) - buffer distance - 100 m

 

DO NOT re-apply to the same crop within 7 days (unless specifi cally recommended in the directions for use).

 

Safety Directions

 

Product is poisonous if absorbed by skin contact, inhaled or swallowed. Repeated minor exposure may have a cumulative poisoning effect. Obtain an emergency supply of Atropine tablets 0.6 mg. Will irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale vapour or spray mist. When opening the container, preparing spray and using the prepared spray wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist, washable hat, elbow length PVC gloves and face shield or goggles. If product on skin, immediately wash area with soap and water. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water. After each day's use, wash gloves, face shield or goggles and contaminated clothing.

 

Storage

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. When storing treated seed keep apart from other seed and clearly mark containers to indicate that the contents have been treated with CYREN 500 EC INSECTICIDE. Containers which have held treated seed or bait should not be used for any other purpose.

 

Disposal

Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the container below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose, clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.

 

For Refillable containers

Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves and return to point of supply for refill or storage.

 

SMALL SPILL MANAGEMENT

Wear appropriate clothing and protective equipment whilst cleaning up small spills (see SAFETY DIRECTIONS). Apply absorbent material such as earth, sand, cat litter or clay granules to the spill. Sweep up material and contain in a refuse vessel for disposal. If spilled inside a building, wash contaminated surfaces to deactivate the chlorpyrifos with a dilute solution of bleach (sodium hypochlorite), prepared according to the bleach label instructions. Dispose of the contaminated material in accordance with STORAGE AND DISPOSAL instructions.

 

Precaution

DO NOT USE TREATED SEED FOR ANIMAL OR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. DO NOT ALLOW TREATED SEED TO CONTAMINATE GRAIN/OTHER SEED INTENDED FOR ANIMAL OR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. DO NOT FEED TREATED SEED, OR OTHERWISE EXPOSE, TO WILD OR DOMESTIC BIRDS.

 

DO NOT USE TREATED GRAPEVINE LEAVES FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. AVOID CONTACT WITH FOOD, FOOD UTENSILS, OR PLACES WHERE FOOD IS PREPARED OR STORED.

 

DO NOT APPLY INSIDE BUILDINGS EXCEPT AS A CRACK AND CREVICE TREATMENT. DO NOT APPLY TO SURFACE AREAS SUCH AS INTERIOR FLOORS OR WALLS.

 

Re-entry Period

Field crops, tree crops and vines: DO NOT allow entry into treated crops until spray deposits have dried. If prior entry is required, limit duration of entry and wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day's use. Greenhouses: DO NOT allow entry into greenhouses until spray deposits have dried and treated areas are adequately ventilated. If prior entry is required, limit duration of entry and wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing), chemical resistant gloves and half-facepiece respirator. Clothing must be laundered after each day's use.

 

Cotton chippers: DO NOT allow entry into treated crops until spray deposits have dried. After that time, wear shoes or boots, socks, long trousers, long sleeved shirt, gloves and hat.
