Composition: Chlorpyrifos 480g/L (Organophosate)
Carrot/ Potato: 1L/ha
Tomato: 150ml – 200ml
Beans/ Grain Sorghum: 10ml/100m row length or 3L water
Maize – Black beetle: 10ml/100m row length or 3L water
Stalkborer: 3.5ml/100m row length or 3L water
Carrot/Potato: Apply as an overall application when plants emerge. Repeat application at intervals of 2 – 3 weeks. Apply in at least 500L water/ha.
Tomato: Apply as a full cover spray and repeat every 7 days. When a heavy American bollworm infestation occurs, a higher dose is recommended. Repeat this application every 7 days until pests are under control. Thereafter continue spraying at the lower dosage rate (150 ml) every 7 days.
Beans/ Grain Sorghum: Spray into the plant furrow just behind the planter shoe before closing the furrow.
Maize: Early planting: Apply when 5% of the plants are infested with eggs or when 10% plants show “shot hole” damage. If control of this infestation is delayed too long, the larvae may be protected inside the stalk and poor results can be expected.
Late planting: Apply the first spray 30 – 35 days after planting and repeat 14 days later.
