Neither the efficacy nor the phytotoxicity of the product for which this EAMU has been granted has been assessed and, as such, the user bears the risk in respect of failures concerning its efficacy or phytotoxicity.

Additional Information for Growers

This can only be applied when thiacloprid (‘Exemptor’) has not already been incorporated into the growing media prior to sowing.

Use no more than two applications of any neonicotinoid insecticide (e.g. clothianidin, imidacloprid or thiacloprid) on any crop per year. Where a neonicotinoid insecticide has previously been used as a soil treatment, use no more than a single foliar application of any neonicotinoid.

Only one neonicotinoid soil treatment can be applied per crop per year. Total reliance on one pesticide will hasten the development of resistance. Pesticides of different chemical types or alternative control measures should be included in the planned programme. Alternating with different modes of action is a recognised anti-resistance strategy. This includes consideration of sequences involving soil treatments followed by foliar sprays. Where a neonicotinoid soil treatment has been used the first subsequent foliar spray should be a non-neonicotinoid containing product with a different mode of action.

EAMU 0186/2014 ‘Actara’ containing (250 g / kg thiamethoxam) for use on protected ornamentals 

This new Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU) 0186/2014 relates to the use of ‘Actara’ (M13728) as an insecticide for the control of western flower thrip (Frankliniella occidentalis) on protected ornamentals. Click on the download button to view the notice.

Neither the efficacy nor the phytotoxicity of the product for which this EAMU has been granted has been assessed and, as such, the user bears the risk in respect of failures concerning its efficacy or phytotoxicity.

Additional Information for Growers   The product is to be applied via horizontal boom sprayer or hand held sprayers in a volume of 500 to 2000 litres per hectare, depending on the crop size and stage of growth. Applications should be made at 7 to 14 day intervals.
Growers are advised to test a small area of the crop prior to widescale commercial use.
Do not clean application equipment near surface water. Avoid contamination via drains from glasshouses, farmyards and roads.
Use no more than two applications of any neonicotinoid insecticide (e.g. clothianidin, thiamethoxam, imidacloprid or thiacloprid) on any crop per year (and per structure in protected situations). Where a neonicotinoid insecticide has previously been used as a soil treatment, use no more than a single foliar application of any neonicotinoid.
This includes consideration of sequences involving soil treatments followed by foliar sprays. Where a neonicotinoid soil treatment has been used, the first subsequent foliar spray should be a non-neonicotinoid containing product. Treated plants may not be put outside until after they have finished flowering.
IMPORTANT: When applying this product under the terms of this Extension of Authorisation, comply with any resistance guidance or restrictions stated on the product label.
Total reliance on one pesticide will hasten the development of resistance. Pesticides of different chemical types or alternative control measures should be included in the planned programme. Alternating insecticides with different modes of action is a recognised anti-resistance strategy, and ‘Actara’ should always be used in conjunction with other insecticides of a different mode of action.
