General Information

APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS AND VEGETABLE PLANTS

QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE may be used to control insect pests on ornamental and vegetable plants in nurseries and greenhouses and interior plantscapes. Insect protection is achieved because QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE is a systemic product and the active ingredient moves upward into the plant system. For best results QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE should be applied to the growing part of the plant for more absorption of the active ingredient. Nitrogen containing fertilizer may be added to the solution to aid in the uptake of the active ingredient where applicable. QUALI-PRO IMIDAAGRICULTURAL CLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE may be applied as a foliar spray or by soil applications such as soil injection, drenches, chemigation and broadcast sprays.

Soil applications to plants with woody stems will require applications of QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE before expected pests infestations due to the delay in the uptake of the active ingredient and the time until the product is taken up throughout the plant.

For outdoor ornamentals, broadcast applications cannot exceed a total of 1.6 pints (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

Bark Media: The length of protection after treatment with QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE may be shortened if the media has 30% or more bark content.

RESISTANCE: Some insects are known to develop resistance to insecticides after repeated use. As with any insecticide, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. Consult your Cooperative Extension Service for resistance management strategies and recommended pest management practices for your area.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

SOIL INJECTION, SOIL DRENCH AND BROADCAST APPLICATIONS IN NURSERY, GREENHOUSE AND INTERIORSCAPE PLANTS

APPLICATION INSTRUCTION

Soil Injections:

Grid System: Holes should be spaced on 2.5 foot centers, in a grid pattern, extending to the drip line of the tree.

Circle System: Apply in holes evenly spaced in circles, (use more than one circle dependent upon the size of the tree) beneath the drip line of the tree extending in from that line.

Basal System: Space injection holes evenly around the base of the tree trunk no more than 6 to 12 inches out from the base.

Mix required dosage in sufficient water to inject an equal amount of solution in each hole. Maintain a low pressure and use sufficient solution for distribution of the liquid into the treatment zone.

For optimum control, keep the treated area moist for 7 to 10 days. Do not use less than 4 holes per tree.

No Soil Injection

Application Allowed in Nassau or Suffolk Counties of New York.

Soil Drench: Uniformly apply the dosage in no less than 10 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet as a drench around the base of the tree, directed to the root zone. Remove plastic or any other barrier that will stop solution from reaching the root zone.

For Control of Specified Borers: Application to trees already heavily infested may not prevent the eventual loss of the trees due to existing pest damage and tree stress.

RESTRICTIONS

Do not graze treated areas or use clippings for treated areas for feed or forage. Avoid runoff or puddling of irrigation water following application.

Do not apply QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE to soils which are water logged or saturated, which will not allow penetration into the root zone of the plants.

Do not allow leachate run out for the first 10 days after application, in order to retain the product and facilitate full plant uptake of the active ingredient.

For outdoor omamentals grown in beds or turf, applications of QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE cannot exceed a total of 1.6 pt (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per 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 tolerances for the active ingredient have been established, a 12 month plant-back interval should be observed.

Restricted Entry Interval

12 hours

Exception: If the product is applied by drenching, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
