For the control of African Black Beetle, Argentine Stem Weevil, Argentinian Scarab, Billbugs and other insect pests in turf. 

ACELEPRYN Turf Insecticide provides unmatched, season long grub and caterpillar control with a single application. ACELEPRYN delivers excellent preventative performance, with optimal results achieved with application early in the season (mid September) with the appearance of overwintering adult pests. The long residual performance of ACELEPRYN will provide up to 6 months protection at the higher application rates. Curative control with ACELEPRYN on pest outbreaks later in the season (mid December onwards) can be achieved using the higher recommended application rates.

Other Restriction of Use

DO NOT graze treated turf/lawn or feed turf/lawn clipping from any treated area to poultry or livestock.

Tank mix preparation

As formulations of other manufacturer’s products are beyond the control of Syngenta, and the quality of water may vary with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

Implementation particular terms

DO NOT apply when the soil is saturated with water as adequate distribution of the active ingredient vertically in the soil profile cannot be achieved under this condition.
DO NOT apply more than 2.8 L per hectare per year in broadcast applications to turfgrass.

Mixing and spraying

Prior to mixing, start with clean, well maintained application equipment.
Fill spray tank to ¼ to ½ full of water. Measure the amount of ACELEPRYN required for the area to be sprayed. Add ACELEPRYN directly to spray tank with the agitation engaged. Mix thoroughly to disperse the insecticide. Once dispersed, the material must be kept in suspension at all times by continuous agitation.
Use mechanical or hydraulic means, DO NOT use air agitation, premix or slurry.
If spray solution is left standing, ensure thorough re-agitation of the spray mix until fully resuspended. DO NOT allow spray mix to sit overnight, as resuspension may be difficult.

Apply extremely coarse droplets using nozzles such as Turbo Floodjet* (TF5) or Turfjet* (TTJ10).
Spray with at least 400 L of water/ha to ensure even coverage.
The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or expert advice.
Note that the amount of product specified in the Directions for Use is per hectare of product. You will need to determine your spray rate per hectare before deciding on the amount of product to add to the tank.
For optimal control, irrigate with approximately 6 mm of water immediately after application (except where treating for caterpillars, when irrigation and mowing should be delayed for 24 hours).

DO NOT apply when wind speed is less than 3 or more than 20 km per hour at the application site.
DO NOT apply when there are aquatic and wetland areas including aquacultural ponds or surface streams and rivers downwind from the application area and within the mandatory no-spray zone of 10 m.

Water volume

Spray with at least 400 L of water/ha to ensure even coverage.

The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or expert advice.
