USE INFORMATION

Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 1G Nursery & Greenhouse Insecticide will control insects on ornamental plants grown in nurseries and greenhouses.

Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 1G Nursery & Greenhouse

Insecticide is a systemic insecticide that is translocated upwards within the plant. For best results, Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 1G Nursery & Greenhouse Insecticide must be applied where the roots of the target plants can absorb the active ingredient. After application, irrigate moderately but thoroughly, being sure to avoid leaching and runoff from the container for at least three irrigations or 10 days, whichever is longer.

Use Precautions:

- Do not graze treated areas or use clippings from treated areas for feed or forage.

- Do not apply to soils which are waterlogged or saturated. This condition will not allow penetration of water into the root zone of the plants.

- Do not over-irrigate or allow excessive runoff to occur following an application of Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 1G Nursery & Greenhouse Insecticide.

- Do not apply more than 40 lbs. of Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 1G Nursery & Greenhouse Insecticide per acre per year.

- On plants with a production cycle of less than one year, application is not to exceed a frequency of more than once each 16 weeks for a particular plant. On stock plants and woody crops with a production cycle of greater than one year, application may not exceed once a year.

Food Crops: 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 tolerance for the active ingredient has been established, a 12-month plant-back interval must be observed.

Insect Resistance: After repeated use of a particular insecticide, some insects may develop a resistance. It is important that the use of this product conforms to resistance-management practices established for the use area. Consult your Cooperative Extension Service for resistance-management strategies and recommended pest-management practices for your area.

Do not make a foliar application of any chloronicotinyl insecticide following Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 1G Nursery & Greenhouse Insecticide soil application to the same crop.

Woody perennials: Protection in woody perennials is slower than in herbaceous species, and a delay of 2 or more weeks should be expected, with longer delays for larger plants. Because of this, make applications to woody perennials well in advance of expected insect activity.

Incorporation: Incorporation of Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 1G Nursery & Greenhouse Insecticide can be accomplished by cultivation, irrigation, rainfall, mechanical placement, or by using mechanical soil or media-mixing equipment.

Bark Media: When treating bark media with 30-50% or more bark content, the period of protection with Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 1G Nursery & Greenhouse Insecticide will be shortened.
