|For the control of red scale and white louse scale, jassids (leafhoppers) and longtail, citrus and citrophilous mealybugs in citrus crops; mealybugs in grapes and pears; mealybugs and scales in persimmons, custard apples and passionfruit and mango scale in mangoes.
Chemical Group insect growth regulator
Prior to pouring, shake container vigorously, then add the required quantity of Ospray Clap Insecticide to water in the spray vat while stirring or with agitators in motion.
Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of runoff and matched to the stage of growth of crop being sprayed.
Calibrate and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy. Apply sufficient water to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off.
The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or specialist advice.
Add the amount of product specified in the Directions for Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off.
The required dilute spray volume, sprayer calibration and operation may all need to be changed, as the crop grows.
Use a sprayer designed and calibrated for concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies water volumes less than those required to reach the point of run-off) and matched to the stage of crop being sprayed.
Calibrate and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen water volume.
Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate.
The mixing rate for concentrate spraying can then be calculated in the following way:
1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha
2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha
3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (ie 1500 L / 500 L = 3)
4. If the dilute label rate is 100 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 100, that is 300 g/100 L of concentrate spray.
The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water, and the sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows.
For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.
Application Instructions: Citrus Only
Apply Ospray Clap Insecticide in sufficient water to ensure complete wetting of all surfaces.
A spray volume of 7,000 to 12,000 L water/ha should be used for trees up to 5m high. To optimize control the following application procedures are recommended:
a) ground speed 2.3 to 2.75 km/h
b) pump pressure 3000 to 5000 kPa
c) oscillation rate 90-110 oscillations per minute
d) spray pattern adjacent cones marrying at about 1.75m (i.e. narrow cone angle, but the maximum angle consistent with good tree penetration).
e) agitation 1 large paddle per 500L; paddles should clear the bottom of the vat by about 10mm and should have the same orientation.
f) boom set set angle of top to match tree size.
Airblast sprayers may be used for control of jassids/leafhoppers, but are less suitable for control of scales and mealy bugs. For jassid control, use spray volumes of approximately 5000 L/ha.
Ospray Clap Insecticide is compatible with Dithane Rainshield Neo Tec Fungicide and a number of other agricultural chemicals commonly used on the same crops. Please contact your supplier or Ospray representative for further information on compatibility.
Clap Insecticide is not compatible with Sacoa BioPest Oil or with products that are highly alkaline or highly acidic.
After using Clap Insecticide, empty the tank completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the tank using a pressure hose, drain the tank and clean all fi lters in the tank, pump, lines and nozzles.
After cleaning the tank and filters as above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and circulate through the pumps, lines, hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.
Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area, or if this is unavailable, onto unused land away from plants and water courses
Insecticide Resistance Warning
For insecticide resistance management Ospray Clap is a Group 17A insecticide. To minimize the risk of resistance developing, a total of no more than two applications of Ospray Clap Insecticide should be made on a crop per season. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Clap and other Group 17A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Ospray Clap or other Group 17A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Ospray Clap on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Ospray accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Ospray Clap to control resistant insects. Ospray Clap may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier or Ospray representative.
Protection of Non-target Insects
Ospray Clap Insecticide at label rates of 30 to 60 mL/100L water has been demonstrated to be safe to a range of predatory and beneficial insects including bumblebees and honeybees, parasitoid wasps such as Aphytis lignanensis, Leptomastix dactylopil and Encarsia spp., predatory mites such as Phytoseiulus persimilis and Typhlodromus occidentalis and the green lacewing (Mallada signatus). Ospray Clap Insecticide has no significant effect on adult ladybeetles but is known to be toxic to early instars of Cryptolaemus montrouzieri, Chilocorus circumdatus and Harmonia conformis. Ospray Clap Insecticide may also affect egg hatch of these species for 2 to 3 weeks after application.
DO NOT apply by air.
DO NOT apply more than twice per year in any crop.
Wine grapes: DO NOT apply later than 80% capfall.
Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment
DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers. May be toxic to crustaceans. Runoff from treated areas should be prevented from entering waterways.
DO NOT apply if heavy rain is imminent.
Irrigation should not take place within 24 hours of treatment.
Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants
DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause spray to drift onto nearby plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures.
Will irritate the eyes. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands after use. When opening the container, preparing spray and using the prepared spray, wear cotton overalls, over normal clothing, buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat and elbow-length PVC gloves. After each day's use, wash gloves, and contaminated clothing.
Keep out of reach of children.
Store in the closed, original container in a cool well-ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.
DO NOT store near foodstuffs, fertilizers or seed.
This container can be recycled if it is clean, dry, free of visible residues and has the drumMUSTER logo visible. Triple or pressure rinse container for disposal. Dispose of rinsate by adding to the spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Wash outside of the container and the cap. Store cleaned container in a sheltered place with cap removed. It will then be acceptable for recycling at any drumMUSTER collection or similar container management site. The cap should not be replaced but may be taken separately.
Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.
SMALL SPILL MANAGEMENT
Wear protective equipment (see Safety Directions). Apply absorbent material such as earth, sand, clay granules or cat litter to the spill. When absorption is completed, sweep up material and contain in a refuse vessel for disposal (see Storage and Disposal section). If necessary wash the spill area with an alkali detergent and water and absorb the wash liquid for disposal as described above.
