Insecticide Resistance Warning


For insecticide resistance management Talstar 80 SC is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Talstar 80 SC 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 Talstar 80 SC or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Talstar 80 SC on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, FMC Crop Protection Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Talstar 80 SC to control resistant insects.


Talstar 80 SC may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, FMC Crop Protection Pty Ltd representative or local agricultural department agronomist.




Talstar 80 SC is a suspension concentrate requiring dilution with water prior to use. Applications should be made with ground equipment calibrated to deliver a fine dilute spray in a suitable volume to ensure thorough coverage. Use suitable application equipment and preferably cone nozzle combinations to deliver appropriate spray volume and a droplet size of 150 to 200 microns. Do not apply as a fog or mist.




Add the required quantity of Talstar 80 SC to water in the spray tank and mix thoroughly. Maintain agitation during mixing and application.




Talstar 80 SC is compatible with commonly used fungicides such as Dithane* M45, Antracol*, Barrack* 720 and Kocide*.




Talstar 80 SC contains a surfactant. Additional surfactant may only be necessary on hard to wet plants and in high volume situations.
