|Flowable seed dressing for the treatment of wheat, barley, oats and triticale
Chemical Group Anilide
Vitaflo® C Seed Treatment is a suspension concentrate (flowable) seed dressing for treatment of wheat, barley, oats and triticale by standard methods.
At the rates recommended, Vitaflo C Seed Treatment is non-phytoxic to seed and young establishing cereal plants. Carboxin is patented as a growth stimulant in the USA and is known to increase the coleoptile length of cereal seedlings. This enables seedlings to reach the soil surface quickly and to establish strongly even when seedbed conditions are far from ideal. Sowing depth and low soil temperatures are not as critical for Vitaflo C as they are for some other fungicidal seed dressings.
Mixing & Application
Vitaflo C Seed Treatment may be applied to seed undiluted or may be mixed with water if required to achieve optimum coverage of grain. This requirement will depend on the equipment in use and the rates to be applied. Use only through equipment designed to apply suspension concentrate or slurry seed treatments to grain.
Seed treatment should not be used on seed with more than 12% moisture content, or on sprung, damaged or severely pinched seed, or seed of poor viability. If in doubt, have a germination test carried out on the seed before treatment to ensure that it is of acceptable standard.
Storage of Treated Seed
If seed is not used immediately after treatment, it should be stored in a dry, well ventilated place. Although Vitaflo C Seed Treatment has no effect on the viability of treated seed, subsequent germination can be adversely affected by poor storage conditions such as high moisture combined with high temperatures. No liability can therefore be accepted for performance of stored treated seed.
Fungicide Resistance Warning
GROUP 7 FUNGICIDE
Vitaflo C Seed Treatment is a member of the Oxathiin group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management Vitaflo C Seed Treatment is a Group 7 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to Vitaflo C Seed Treatment and other Group 7 fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by Vitaflo C Seed Treatment and other Group 7 fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss.
Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Vitaflo C Seed Treatment to control resistant fungi.
Insecticide Resistance Warning
GROUP 3A INSECTICIDE
For insecticide resistance management Vitaflo C Seed Treatment is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Vitaflo C Seed Treatment and other Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Vitaflo C Seed Treatment or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Vitaflo C Seed Treatment on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.
Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Vitaflo C Seed Treatment to control resistant insects. VitafloC Seed Treatment may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd representative or local agricultural department agronomist.
Do not use treated seed for animal or human consumption. Do not allow treated seed to contaminate grain or other seed intended for animal or human consumption. Do not feed treated seed, or otherwise expose, to wild or domestic birds.
Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment
DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways and drains with this product or used containers or with bags which have held treated seed.
Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants
Treated seed should not be held over from one sowing season for sowing in subsequent seasons.
Protection of Livestock
DO NOT feed treated seed to animals, including poultry. It is important that any treated seed not used for sowing is destroyed. Bags which have held treated seed should not be used for any other purpose. When treated seed is stored, it should be kept apart from other grain and the bags (or other containers) should be clearly marked to indicate the contents have been treated with Vitaflo C Seed Treatment.
Harmful if swallowed. Will irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid inhaling. When using the product wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat, elbow-length PVC gloves and face shield. Repeated exposure may cause allergic disorders. Facial skin contact may cause temporary facial numbness. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water. After each day's use, wash gloves, face shield and contaminated clothing.
Store in the tightly closed, original container in a dry, cool, well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight and away from foodstuffs, drink containers and livestock. Do not use container for any other purpose.
Triple or preferably, pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on-site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill available, bury the containers below 500mm 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.
