Confidor® 200 SC Insecticide is a leading insecticide from Bayer CropScience that offers effective and long-lasting protection against sucking pests in a wide range of crops. Confidor is proven worldwide and Bayer’s superior quality Confidor formulations have been used and trusted in Australia for more than 10 years.
Following a number of years where Confidor 200 SC was used as a seedling drench under an APVMA permit, in December 2009 this use pattern was registered for brassica vegetables and lettuce (for densities up to 75,000 plants per hectare only). In January 2011 registration was extended to include lettuce planting densities up to 300,000 plants per hectare, based on reduced application rates per 1,000 seedlings.
As part of the Bayer CropScience commitment to product stewardship, the following information is provided to you, the grower, to ensure you are fully aware of the details of this registration, particularly in relation to the correct handling of seedlings that have been treated with Confidor at the nursery.
