General Instructions


Different plant stresses can have cumulative effect. In general, follow good farming practice to minimise all other sources of plant stress. Avoid applying D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil when environmental conditions elevate plant stress. Avoid spraying complex tank mixtures, In particular DO NOT spray:

  • When the soil is dry
  • If trees are suffering from moisture stress
  • If hot weather (> 35° () is imminent or has occurred in the previous 4 days. If the shade temperature exceeds 32°C
  • In slow drying conditions


Since D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil can be used as a herbicide adjuvant, any phytotoxic tendencies of other insecticides mixed with D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil may be enhanced. Follow the label precautions on the other insecticides carefully and if in doubt about a certain mixture then test on a small area first before widespread use.


D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil sprays greater than 250 mL/100L water should not be applied for at least one month after spraying with sulphur or lime sulphur, as severe injury may occur, especially if the oil is applied in hot water.


DO NOT apply D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil in combination with Propargite or within 4 weeks of a Propargite application.


Adding spray oils with Torque®¹ Miticide / Insecticide can reduce the speed of action of Torque® Miticide/Insecticide. Avoid applying Torque® with D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil where rapid speed of action is required.


DO NOT apply D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil in combination with, or following a chlorothanlonil application.


DO NOT sue in combination with Supracide² 400 Emulsifiable Concentrate Insecticide on mangoes after fruit set and while fruit is on the tree.


DO NOT use D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil on mangoes during flowering or while fruit is on the tree.




Pour the required amount of water into the mixing tank then add the D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil and agitate well. When using in combination with other pesticides, mix the pesticide first (except Carbaryl) according to the manufacturers instructions, then add the D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil. For specific mixing instructions when using D-C-Maxx nC24 Horticultural Paraffinic Oil with other insecticides, refer to the other insecticide label.


Consult insecticide/fungicide labels for minimum spray volumes per hectare. Follow appropriate resistance management strategies recommended on insecticide/fungicide labels.


Ensure that oil-water mixtures held in spray tanks or containers during application are continually and effectively agitated or stirred to prevent the oil separating from the water.
