General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

Quali-Pro Ethephon 2 SL removes dwarf mistletoe from ORNAMENTAL CONIFERS and leafy mistletoe from ORNAMENTAL DECIDUOUS TREES. Quali-Pro Ethephon 2 SL eliminates undesirable fruit from APPLE, CRABAPPLE, CAROB and OLIVE TREES. When used on TURFGRASSES, Quali-Pro Ethephon 2 SL retards grass growth to reduce mowing frequency.

For local recommendations on rates, spray volumes (gallons of water per acre), and spray equipment under varying temperature and rainfall conditions, consult your Extension Pomologist, Horticultural Specialist, or Farm Advisor for his experience with this product in your area.

APPLICATION VOLUMES AND SPRAY COVERAGE

Thorough spray coverage is essential to achieve maximum product effectiveness. Spray coverage is affected by choice of equipment, nozzle selection and spray boom setup as well as spray pressure, plant size and canopy density. For both air and ground applications, it is important to choose an equipment setup that will assure thorough coverage of plant canopy (foliage and fruit). The actual spray volume required will vary with the size and density of the plant canopy and the equipment used. In California and Arizona, use a volume of no less than 5 gallons per acre for aerial applications.

USE PRECAUTIONS

DO NOT MIX Quali-Pro Ethephon 2 SL WITH AMMONIUM THIOSULFATE. SUCH TANK MIXTURES MAY RESULT IN FORMATION OF TOXIC FUMES.

Mix only the amount of spray you expect to use each day. DO NOT allow mixed solution to stand overnight.

Avoid spray drift to nearby crops as this product will cause modification in plant growth. Plant injury or reduced yields will result. DO NOT plant another crop within 30 days after treatment.

DO NOT use Quali-Pro Ethephon 2 SL with additives other than recommended on the label.

Avoid spills of concentrated product on spray equipment or airplane parts. IMMEDIATELY RINSE ANY SPILLS WITH PLENTY OF WATER AS QUALI-PRO ETHEPHON 2 SL IS CORROSIVE.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

Make foliar applications after fall leaf drop through mid-winter. If mistletoe regrowth occurs, re-treat before mid-winter.

For effective removal, all mistletoe shoots must be sprayed to wet.

Use of a non-ionic surfactant at recommended rates may increase effectiveness.

Remarks:

Large mistletoe infections and mistletoe found in mesquite may be difficult to control with a single application and re-treatment may be necessary.
