General Instructions




The product can be poured directly into the water in the vat with agitators in operation. If combining with another product, mix each product separately in a small quantity of water first before adding to the vat.



DO NOT apply to any non-food tree crop or plantation (including Eucalyptus spp.) by air.


Resistance Warning


For insect resistance management DANADIM INSECTICIDE is a Group 1B insecticide.


Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to DANADIM 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 DANADIM INSECTICIDE or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of DANADIM INSECTICIDE on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, FMC accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of DANADIM INSECTICIDE to control resistant insects.


DANADIM INSECTICIDE may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, FMC representative or local agricultural department agronomist.


Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers, or waterways with the chemical or used containers. Dangerous to fish.
