Seed may be treated with Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable at any time from harvesting to sowing.


Treated seed may be held over for sowing in the following season. The product contains cypermethrin for protection against insect pests of stored grain.




Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable may be applied neat at 100mL/100kg of seed or diluted with up to 500 mL of water/100 kg of seed (total application volume 600 mL/100 kg). Calculate the amount of water required (see mixing table). Add half the volume to the tank, then the required amount of Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable. Make up the final volume with water and mix thoroughly. If allowed to stand for long periods eg. overnight, agitate thoroughly before using. DO NOT allow to stand for more than 24 hours.

Choose the lowest application volume necessary to give full coverage of seed with the equipment to be used. Application volumes greater than 600 mL are likely to result in excessive wetting of the seed. To achieve disease control, it is essential that the correct quantity of Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable is applied to the grain. It is also essential that each grain is properly treated.


Undiluted: It is essential to use accurately calibrated equipment which is designed for proper coverage of seed at low application volumes.


Diluted: Use correctly calibrated seed treatment equipment to achieve proper grain coverage.



Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable should be applied to grain alone and not mixed with any other product.

Resistance Warning


Fungicide Resistance Warning



Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable is a group C fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group C fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by this product or other Group C fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss. Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, FMC accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant fungi.


Insecticide Resistance Warning



For insecticide resistance management Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable is a Group 3A insecticide.


Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable 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 Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable on resistant individuals could be signifi cantly 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 Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable to control resistant insects. Armour C Seed Dressing Flowable may be subject to specifi c 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 feed or expose treated seed to wildlife and domestic animals, particularly birds. Harmful to fish. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or containers which have held the chemical or treated seed.


Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

Short coleoptile cultivars should not be sown too deep.


In some situations trifluralin herbicides and triazole fungicides interact to suppress emergence, if possible avoid this contamination. Any seed not intended to be used for sowing should be destroyed.
