Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

TREE FRUITS (APPLES)

1/2 – 1 pint (0.25 – 0.5 lb. a.i.): Based on 200 to 600 gallons per acre as a dilute spray.

Only one application of any chlorpyrifos-containing product may be made per year. The application can either be a prebloom dormant/dormant-delayed spray to the canopy or the trunk, OR a postbloom application to the lower 4 feet of the trunk. For postbloom application instructions and restrictions for apple, see the APPLE (TREE TRUNK) section.

For dilute spray, tank mix the specified dosage with 1 to 2 gallons of a petroleum spray oil recommended for dormant use in 100 gallons of water and spray the entire tree by application to runoff using suitable ground spray equipment. (See Additional Precautions Specific to California section for use in California.)

For low-volume (concentrate) sprays (less than 200 gallons of spray mixture per acre), use the same amount of Quali-Pro Chlorpyrifos 4E as for a dilute spray and apply in a manner that will ensure thorough coverage of the trees. Use the higher dosage of Quali-Pro Chlorpyrifos 4E for severe infestations. Use oil as recommended by your State Agricultural Experiment Station or Extension Service specialist.

PRECAUTIONS: Because cold or dry conditions may cause Quali-Pro Chlorpyrifos 4E plus oil sprays to infuse trees resulting in bud damage or drop, do not apply until winter rains or irrigation has replenished soil moisture such that bark and twigs are not desiccated. Do not use more than 4 pints of Quali-Pro Chlorpyrifos 4E per acre.

RESTRICTIONS:

Do not allow meat or dairy animals to graze in treated orchards. The application can either be a prebloom dormant/dormant-delayed spray to the canopy or the trunk, OR a postbloom application to the lower 4 feet of the trunk. For postbloom application instructions and restrictions for apple, see the APPLE (TREE TRUNK) section. Do not make a soil or foliar application within 10 days of a dormant/delayed-dormant application of chlorpyrifos to the orchard.

Restricted Entry Interval

4 days
