EBB & FLOOD APPLICATION - POT SIZES 8 INCHES

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

EBB & FLOOD APPLICATION

Prior to treatment, to ensure accurate uptake by the plants, at least 10 plants should be brought up to a known field capacity and allowed to dry out for one or two days.

Once dry, re-wet these plants to determine how much water on average each plant will absorb to bring it back at field capacity. Use the volume absorbed per plant (keeping pot sizes uniform) multiplied by the number of pots being treated. Add to this volume a required minimum to flood your smallest treatment area. This should minimize the return back to the storage tank. Re-use the returned volume with subsequent irrigation or nutrients on the same plants.

Herbaceous species including vegetable plants* (1 or 2 plants per pot): 6.6 ml / 100 Plants

Woody perennials, Herbaceous species including vegetable plants* (3 or more plants per pot): 9.1 ml / 100 Plants

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

1 Fungus gnat larvae: Control in the soil by drench or incorporation. QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE will not control adult Fungus Gnats.

2 Root Mealybug: To obtain control, thoroughly drench the containerized media but do not allow leaching from the bottom of the container. Use the following rate of 1.7 fl oz (50 mL) in 150 gallons of water.

3 Citrus Root Weevil: For use on non-bearing citrus nursery stock.

4 Thrips: For suppression on foliage only. Thrips in buds and flowers will not be supressed.

Foliar insect control is accomplished by the uptake of QUALIPRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F NURSERY & GREENHOUSE INSECTICIDE from a healthy root system.

This allows the active ingredient to move up into the plant.

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.

Method
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.
