General Instructions


A highly refined emulsifiable oil for the control or suppression of certain pests in cotton, pulse and oilseed crops, for use as a carrier with ULV insecticides, a defoliation aid in cotton and as an adjuvant for use with certain herbicidesin broadacre situations as per the Directions for Use table


This product can be used, as indicated in the directions for use, to control or suppress green mirids, silverleaf whitefly and cotton aphids in cotton, Helicoverpa spp in cotton, pulse and oilseed crops, and green peach aphids, diamond back moth in pulse and oilseed crops and as a carrier for ULV insecticides or as a cotton defoliation aid with Diuron or Thidiazuron/Diuron. Canopy will also enhance the performance of Dipel SC in canola and the performance of selective grass herbicides used in broadacre cropping.


Mixing Instructions

  • When using as a carrier for ULV and Low Volume insecticide applications DO NOT mix with water. 
    BLEND ONLY WITH COMPATIBLE ULV INSECTICIDE FORMULATIONS – the required mixture can either be blended in a separate clean and dry vessel, or directly in the spray tank. In both cases, add the larger volume last and ensure the whole BLEND is continuously agitated, preferably by recirculation. Other compatible materials should only be added after thorough blending. Thoroughly blend all the materials after each addition. When mixing in the spray tank, firstly add 25-30% of the total Canopy amount, then add the required volume of insecticide and lastly the remaining Canopy amount required, continuously agitating by stirring or by recirculation.

  • When using as a defoliation aid, one-quarter fill the spray tank with water and then add the required amount of Thidiazuron or Thidiazuron/diuron, then Canopy, then the remainder of the water with agitator running.

  • When mixing with other products always refer to companion product label.

Canopy may be mixed with many commonly used insecticides, including Dipel SC, Gemstar LC (ULV), Regent1, Shield1, Pegasus1 and Steward1. Canopy and Pix1 are also compatible. Products should be added to the spray tank separately and the spray mixture used promptly. For the latest information on compatibility of Canopy with other products, contact your local FMC representative. When using in mixtures, follow all usage recommendations and rates, precautions and Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy (IRMS) advice for cotton on primary aphicide or insecticide label.
