Additional Information for Growers
Spray as soon as the pest or damage is seen. Repeat if necessary. Test spray any new or unusual variety before a treating large numbers of plants.

Strains of some aphid species are resistant to many aphicides. Where aphids resistant to products containing cypermethrin / pyrethroids occur, Toppel 100 is unlikely to give satisfactory control. Repeat treatments are likely result in lower levels of control.

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