MAXIMUM APPLICATION RATE: A maximum of 1.0 litre of Dimezyl 40EC can be applied per hectare, with a 3x crop cycle frequency.
SPRAY DRIFT: The person applying the substance must not cause adverse effects beyond the boundary of the treated property, and must also avoid adverse effects from spray drift occurring. Mitigation measures employed must be recorded as part of the application records.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE (PPE) AND RESPIRATORY PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (RPE): Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid inhalation of vapour or spray mist. When mixing or applying, wear chemical resistant overalls, chemical resistant boots and gloves, chemical resistant footwear plus socks, chemical resistant head gear, eye protection and respirator (organic vapour and particulate matter). Clean protective clothing daily after work. Do not eat, drink or smoke while using. Remove protective clothing and wash hands and face thoroughly before meals and after work.

THIS PRODUCT IS VERY TOXIC TO BEES. Do not apply this product to any plant or tree likely to be visited by bees:
NOTIFICATION: Notification is only required for outdoor use, and when used in a wide dispersive manner. The person applying the substance in this situation must:
RESTRICTED ENTRY INTERVAL (REI): The REI is 48 hours. The person in charge is responsible for making sure no person enters the application area before the end of the REI.
SPILLAGE: Wear appropriate protective clothing and prevent material from entering waterways. Absorb spills with inert material and place in waste containers. Wash area with water and absorb with further inert material. Dispose of waste safely, according to local Council regulations.
DISPOSAL: Triple rinse empty container and add rinsate to spray tank. Triple rinsed containers should be taken to an AgRecovery collection site. Otherwise crush and bury in a suitable landfill. Do not burn empty containers.
FIRST AID: If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting. For advice, contact the National Poisons Centre on 0800 POISON (0800 764766) or a doctor immediately. Begin artificial respiration if the victim is not breathing. Use mouth-to-nose rather than mouth-to-mouth. Obtain medical attention. If inhaled, move the victim to fresh air immediately. Begin artificial respiration if breathing has stopped.
Eye contamination: If product or spray enters eyes, wash out immediately and continue rinsing with clean water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.
Skin contact: After contact with skin, wash immediately with soap and water.
FLAMMABLE LIQUID: Do not store or use near heat or flame. Use dry chemical powder, water spray or fog to extinguish fires. Fire fighters should wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full turnout gear.
SPILLAGES: Wear appropriate protective clothing and prevent material from entering waterways. Absorb spills with inert material and place in waste containers. Wash area with water and absorb with further inert material. Dispose of waste safely (such as to a suitable landfill).
RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT: Dimezyl 40EC is a GROUP 1B INSECTICIDE from the organophosphate chemical group. Resistance to this pesticide and related pesticides may develop from excessive use. To minimise this risk use strictly in accordance with label instructions and resistance management strategies that exist for any insect pest listed on the label. Avoid using this insecticide exclusively all season and avoid unnecessary spraying. Maintain good cultural control practices.
Unless otherwise specified rates are suggested for high volume spraying to just before run-off. For concentrate spraying, adjust dilution rate accordingly.
It is an offence to use this product on animals.
