General Instructions


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. Parachute® will also enhance the performance of Dipel* 1 SC in canola and the performance of selective grass herbicides used in broadacre cropping.




- 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 Parachute® amount, then add the required volume of insecticide and lastly the remaining Parachute® 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 Dropp* Ultra or WP, then Parachute®, then the remainder of the water with agitator running.


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