TURFGRASS

Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 0.5G is for use on turfgrass in home lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, and athletic fields to control soil-inhabiting pests as listed.

Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 0.5G can also be used for the suppression of cutworms and chinch bugs in turfgrass areas.

Application Instructions

Effective control can be achieved when applications are made before or during the egg-laying period. The timing of applications can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping, or other methods. For best control, apply prior to egg hatch of the target pests, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.

RESTRICTIONS: Follow treatment by rainfall or irrigation within 24 hours after application to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Do not make applications when turfgrass areas are water-logged or the soil is saturated with water. Adequate distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved when these conditions exist. The area to be treated must be able to accept vertical penetration of rainfall or irrigation water. Do not mow turf or lawn area until after sufficient irrigation or rainfall has occurred so that uniformity of application will not be affected.

Application Equipment

Apply Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 0.5G uniformly over the area being treated with granular application equipment. Both drop-type and rotary-type spreaders may be used. Do not use spreaders which apply the material in narrow, concentrated bands. Calibrate application equipment prior to use according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Check frequently to be sure equipment is working properly and distributing granules uniformly and accurately.

ORNAMENTALS

Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 0.5G can be used as a broadcast application on ornamentals in commercial and residential landscapes.

Application Instructions

Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 0.5G is a systemic product which is translocated upward within the plant system. Follow applications with sufficient mechanical incorporation, irrigation, or rainfall to move the active ingredient into the soil. Irrigate within 24 hours after application if rainfall has not occurred. Apply prior to pest infestation to achieve optimum control.

Apply as a broadcast treatment. Prior to application, remove black plastic or other weed-barrier material that will not permit water permeability.

NOTES: Do not allow runoff or puddling of irrigation water following application. Do not apply Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 0.5G to areas which are waterlogged or saturated, which will not allow penetration into the root zone of the plant.

Application Equipment

Apply Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 0.5G uniformly over the area being treated with granular application equipment. Both drop-type and rotary-type spreaders may be used to apply Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 0.5G. Do not use the type of spreaders which would apply the material in narrow, concentrated bands. Calibrate application equipment prior to use according to the manufacturer’s directions. Check frequently to be sure equipment is working properly and distributing granules uniformly and accurately.

RESTRICTIONS

Treated areas may be replanted with any crop specified on an imidacloprid label or with any crop for which a tolerance exists for the active ingredient.

For crops not listed on an imidacloprid label or for crops for which no tolerances for the active ingredient have been established, a 12-month plant-back interval must be observed.
