General Instructions


Mixing / Application


DILUTE SPRAYING (Tree and Vine Crops only)

Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of runoff and matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up 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 expert 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 will change unless otherwise specified and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.


CONCENTRATE SPRAYING (Tree and Vine Crops only)

(a) Use a sprayer designed and set up 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 crop being sprayed.


(b) Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen water volume.


(c) Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate.


(d) The mixing rate for concentrate spraying can then be calculated in the following way:




(i) Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha


(ii) Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha


(iii) The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (i.e. 1500 L / 500 L = 3) (iv) If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10, that is 30 mL/100 L of concentrate spray.


(e) 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.


(g) For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.




Add the recommended quantity of this product to the required volume of water, mix thoroughly.


Resistance Warning


For insecticide resistance management Fyfanon 440 EW Insecticide is a Group 1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Fyfanon 440 EW 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 Fyfanon 440 EW Insecticide or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Fyfanon 440 EW Insecticide on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since the 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 Fyfanon 440 EW Insecticide to control resistant insects. Fyfanon 440 EW Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, FMC representative or local agricultural department agronomist.


Read Directions for Use, Precautionary Statements, Safety Directions and First Aid instructions prior to opening. Use only at the recommended growth stages. Use only on recommended crops.


Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

DO NOT apply under meteorological conditions or from spraying equipment which could be expected to cause spray to drift onto adjacent areas, particularly wetlands, waterbodies or watercourses. Dangerous to fish and aquatic invertebrates. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.


Safety Directions


Harmful if 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. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale spray mist. When opening the container, preparing spray and using the product wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat and elbow length PVC gloves. 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 and contaminated clothing.



Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.



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 containers 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.



Avoid contact with food, food utensils, or places where food is prepared or stored.


Re-entry Period

DO NOT allow entry into treated areas until the spray has dried. When prior entry is necessary, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and a washable hat and chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day's use.
