Additional Information for Growers

This can only be applied when thiacloprid (‘Exemptor’) has not already been incorporated into the growing media prior to sowing.

Use no more than two applications of any neonicotinoid insecticide (e.g. clothianidin, imidacloprid or thiacloprid) on any crop per year. Where a neonicotinoid insecticide has previously been used as a soil treatment, use no more than a single foliar application of any neonicotinoid.

Only one neonicotinoid soil treatment can be applied per crop per year. Total reliance on one pesticide will hasten the development of resistance. Pesticides of different chemical types or alternative control measures should be included in the planned programme. Alternating with different modes of action is a recognised anti-resistance strategy. This includes consideration of sequences involving soil treatments followed by foliar sprays. Where a neonicotinoid soil treatment has been used the first subsequent foliar spray should be a non-neonicotinoid containing product with a different mode of action.

IMPORTANT: When applying this product under the terms of this notice comply with any resistance guidance or restrictions stated on the product label.
