Insecticide Resistance Warning 


For insecticide resistance management Starbunch is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Starbunch 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 Starbunch or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Starbunch on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, FMC Australasia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Starbunch to control resistant insects.



Do not use to package or store food.


Protection of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans and Environment


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


Storage and Disposal


Store in closed original packaging, in a cool, well ventilated area away from children, animals, food and feedstuffs. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Do not dispose of used bags on site. Remove used bags from bunch after harvest and collect for provision back to FMC Australasia Pty Ltd. If not recycling puncture bags and wrapping and bury in a local authority landfill or an approved industrial waste disposal site. If no landfill or approved disposal site is available, bury bags and wrapping below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant Local, State or Territory government regulations. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.
