COTTON - FLEAHOPPER AND PLANT BUG

General Information

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS

Broadcast Foliar Application

Apply with conventional power-operated spray equipment using nozzles and spray pressures recommended for insecticides. Apply Nufos 4E in a spray volume of not less than 2 gallons per acre for aerial application equipment (fixed wing or helicopter) or not less than 10 gallons per acre for ground equipment, unless otherwise specified. Increase spray volume to ensure adequate coverage with increased density and height of crop canopy. See Spray Drift Precautions section for recommendations on droplet size.

Ground Application: Orient the boom and nozzles so that uniform coverage is obtained. The swath width should not be wider than the boom. Follow nozzle manufacturer’s recommendations for insecticide nozzles with respect to nozzle type, pressure, and spacing.

Broadcast Soil Application

Apply with conventional power-operated spray equipment that will apply the product uniformly to the soil surface. Use nozzles that produce medium or coarse droplets (235-400 microns). Unless otherwise indicated, a spray volume of 10 gallons or more per acre is recommended. For band application, use proportionally less spray volume.

Aerial Application

Use a minimum spray volume of 2 gallons per acre and follow recommendations for best management practices for aerial application, above.

Marking of swaths by flagging, permanent markers or use of GPS equipment is recommended.

Chemigation (Sprinkler Irrigation)

Nufos 4E may be applied to the following crops through sprinkler irrigation equipment: alfalfa, citrus (orchard floors only), corn (field and sweet), cotton, cranberry, mint, sorghum, soybeans, sugarbeet, orchard floors (almond, pecan and walnut), and wheat, or other crops as specified in Cheminova supplemental labeling. Do not apply this product by chemigation unless specified in crop-specific directions in the label or Cheminova supplemental labeling. Do not apply to labeled crops through any other type of irrigation system.

Note: Unless otherwise indicated in specific use directions, the application rates for chemigation are the same as those recommended for broadcast application.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

Apply as a broadcast foliar spray using aircraft or ground spray equipment in all states except Arizona and California. Use a higher rate in the rate range when there is increased pest pressure. Use sufficient spray volume to ensure thorough coverage of treated plants, but no less than 10 gpa for ground spray equipment or 2 gpa for aircraft equipment. Increase spray volume when foliage is dense and/or pest population is high and/or under high temperature and wind conditions. Treat when field counts indicate damaging insect populations are developing or present.

Chemigation: Nufos 4E may be applied through sprinkler irrigation systems at listed broadcast application rates to control listed foliar pests. See Chemigation (Sprinkler Irrigation) section for application instructions.

Proper application methods are necessary to ensure thorough spray coverage and correct rate, and minimize off-target drift. Follow Application Guidelines for ground and aerial application and Spray Drift Management recommendations in General Information section of the label.

Pest-Specific Use Directions:

The 3/8 pint per acre rate will not provide a high degree of control but, compared to the 1 pint per acre rate, will minimize the damage from plant bugs and cotton fleahoppers and allow increased survival and build-up of beneficial insects to aid in the control of bollworms infesting cotton.

Specific Use Restrictions:

- Do not make a second application of Nufos 4E or other product containing chlorpyrifos within 10 days of the first application.

- Do not allow meat or dairy animals to graze in treated areas.

- Do not feed gin trash or treated forage to meat or dairy animals.

Pre-Harvest Interval
