General Information

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

- It is CRITICAL that ISOMATE CM RING is applied as directed.

RATE

Minimum of 20 dispensers per acre (1.65 fl oz or 41.90 g a.i. per application). Maximum of 40 dispensers per acre (3.30 fl oz or 83.80 g a.i. per application). Apply maximum rate of dispensers in orchards that are medium to high-risk, such as moderate to heavily infested orchards, or any orchard adjacent to an untreated orchard. Apply double rate of dispensers to edges of orchard. Do not exceed 150 g a.i. (or 72 dispensers) per acre per year.

APPLICATION

Place dispensers on lateral branches in upper third of tree canopy. Apply dispensers uniformly in the treated area.

TIMING

Apply prior to codling moth emergence in the spring. Consult your local pest control advisor or Pacific Biocontrol representative for proper timing or estimated dispenser longevity in your area.

NOTE

Isomate CM Ring suppresses mating of target pests. Immigration of mated female moths of these species from adjacent external sources of infestation will reduce the level of control.

Manage by:

a. Treatment of external sources of infestation with Isomate CM Ring.

b. Treatment of external sources of infestation with an effective insecticide.

c. Treatment of pheromone treated orchard with insecticide.

Areawide application is most effective. Supplementary applications of insecticide are advised when Isomate CM Ring is used in orchards with high pest populations. All pests must be monitored so that timely intervention with insecticides is possible.
