How to Use

Madex® Top should be stored in a fridge (≤5°C).

Madex® Top can be applied with standard spray equipment.

For optimum control Madex® Top needs to be applied just before egg hatch, to target caterpillars as they hatch and before they enter the fruit. Timing will depend on regional weather conditions. Models such as Rimpro can be used to help with the timings of applications.

Application in the morning or evening hours is recommended.

Madex® Top should be applied at 100 ml/ha per treatment. Spray volume should be high enough to give good crop coverage without runoff (200- 1600 L/ha depending on planting density and crop size).

Repeat application after 8 days of full sunshine or 14 days of part sunshine (where 2 partly sunny days equate to 1 day of full sunshine). Applications should cover the hatching period of codling moth. Madex® Top can be applied up to 10 times per year.
