Sero-X Pesticide contains the active constituent Clitoria ternatea Extract. Clitoria ternatea extract includes many different biologically active compounds, which, in combination, reduce the economic damage caused by target pests through insecticidal and behaviour modification activity such as egg-laying disruption and anti-feeding. Sero-X Pesticide does not rely solely on direct mortality to provide crop protection.

Sero-X can be used as a protective treatment when applied at regular intervals or as a knockdown treatment to control existing pests. It is suitable for use in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs. Effects on insect predators or parasites have been demonstrated as low.

The biological extract in Sero-X comprises many bioactive compounds and, as a result, will have different modes of action. The likelihood of resistance developing to all of the bioactive compounds is considered low. However, as the product requires repeated treatment for good results, it is suggested that it is incorporated into an Integrated Pest Management plan where insect management products are rotated during the growing season to minimise resistance development to any insecticide product being used.

There are over 40 active cyclotides in Sero-X, and each has various roles to play in pest control and is active against different types of pests. These compounds are only active against phytophagous species, that is, it only works against insects that feed on plant Material. The cyclotides in Sero-X, extracted from Clitoria ternatea, are not toxic to predatory insects and pollinators.

Tips For Use

Restraints:

  • Do not apply if heavy rains or storms are forecast within three (3) days.
  • Do not irrigate past the point of water runoff from the treatment area for at least three (3) days after application. 
  • Tail drains that flow from treated areas should be prevented from entering river systems.

Coverage:

  • As with most insecticides, good coverage is essential for maximum efficacy.
  • Sero-X is a contact insecticide for direct toxicity.
  • The behaviour modification properties of Sero-X, such as mating disruption, do not require direct contact. 
  • It is crucial for the anti-feeding/repellency mode of actions to work correctly, and that coverage be consistent and thorough.

Monitoring:

  • Detailed checks of pest numbers as per best practice pest management requirements are recommended to ensure application can be made at the earliest suitable time to achieve the best result.

Mixing:

  • Shake or agitate the container prior to mixing with water. 
  • Add the required quantity of Sero-X Pesticide to clean water in a half-filled spray tank with an agitator or by-pass in operation.
  • Maintain agitation while filling the tank with the remainder of the water. 
  • Agitation must also be maintained throughout the spray operation.

Compatibility:

  • Sero-X Pesticide is an emulsifiable concentrate and is likely compatible with commonly used organic liquid fertilisers. 
  • Always check the physical compatibility with other products using a jar test in the correct proportions. Do not mix Sero-X with paraffinic oils.

Surfactants:

  • Sero-X Pesticide contains a surfactant, so no additional surfactant is required*.

* Paraffinic Oils – The one instance of incompatibility noted to date is when the product is mixed with paraffinic or “white” oils. Do not mix Sero-X with these products.

Application:

  • Sero-X Pesticide may be applied by ground rig or aircraft. 
  • Thorough coverage is essential to ensure adequate control. 
  • Applications should be made using nozzles, pressures and other spray conditions to produce a fine/medium spray.

Ground Application: 

  • An application volume of 50-200 L/ha is recommended for cotton and Lucerne. 
  • A spray volume of 100-500 L/ha is recommended for brassicas. 
  • For cucurbits, tomatoes, and brassica crops at a later stage of development, e.g. after head formation, apply Sero-X at a per 100L rate with total spray volumes from 300 L – 1000 L/ha.
  • Aerial Application: 
  • Apply in a minimum of 30 L/ha water. 
  • Use appropriate water volume to achieve thorough coverage. 
  • A strategy to minimise spray drift should be employed at all times when aerially applying sprays near sensitive areas. 
  • Such a strategy is illustrated by the cotton industry’s Best Management Practice Manual.

Precautions:

  • For professional use only.
  • Re-entry: Don’t enter treated areas until the spray has dried unless wearing cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical-resistant gloves. 
  • Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.

Protections: Integrated Pest Management

  • Brassicas, Cucurbits, Lucerne and Tomatoes: The effect on insect predators or parasites of Sero-X at rates exceeding 2 L/ha has not been established and may not be compatible with integrated pest management (IPM) programs utilising beneficial arthropods. 
  • Minimise spray drift to reduce harmful effects on beneficial arthropods in non-crop areas.

Protection Of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans And Environment:

  • Do not contaminate wetlands or watercourses with this product or used containers.
