General Instructions

 

Mixing

 

Mix the required quantity of Le-mat in sufficient water to give even coverage. Boom sprayers and aircraft are satisfactory for spraying Le-mat.

 

Compatibility

Compatible with most commonly used herbicides from direct drilling and minimum tillage to pasture topping. Ensure that Le-mat is thoroughly mixed in the spray tank before adding a herbicide. Do not mix concentrates together but add each to the spray tank separately. As formulations of other manufacturers' products are beyond the control of Arysta LifeScience Corporation, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities. As changes in climatic conditions can alter the sensitivity of plants to mixtures of sprays, Arysta LifeScience cannot be responsible for the behaviour of such mixtures.

 

Resistance Warning

 

For insecticide resistance management Le-mat is a Group 1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Le-mat and other Group 1B insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Le-mat and other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Le-mat on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Arysta LifeScience Corporation accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Le-mat to control insects. Le-mat may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Arysta LifeScience representative or local agricultural department agronomist.
