General Information

For insecticide resistance management Vantal® Upgrade is a Group 6 insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Vantal® Upgrade and other Group 6 insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Vantal® Upgrade and other Group 6 insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Vantal® Upgrade 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 failure of Vantal® Upgrade to control resistant insects. Vantal® Upgrade may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your supplier, FMC representative or local agricultural department agronomist.



Vantal® Upgrade is compatible with Summer Spray Oils, Vegetable oils, thiodicarb, methomyl, amitraz and with most commonly used insecticides and fungicides. DO NOT apply with ULV formulations. Mixtures with more than one of the above are not recommended. As formulations of other manufacturers’ products are beyond the control of FMC and the quality of water may vary with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.


Storage and Disposal

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to the 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 deliver empty packaging to an approved waste management facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available bury the empty packaging 500 mm below the surface 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. Do not burn empty containers or product.

Disposal of waste dipping solution: Dispose of spent treatment solutions in a waste pit at least 50 metres away from streams, drains, ponds, channels, wells, boreholes or watercourses. Ensure it is disposed of at least two metres above any groundwater, in a location that is not affected by erosion or flooding. For light soil areas it is recommended to add compost, sawdust or peat to the disposed liquid.
