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.
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.
WHEAT - FOLIAR APPLICATION
Mix the required dosage with water and apply in a minimum of 2 gallons per acre finished spray volume. Apply using aerial (fixed wing or helicopter) or power-operated ground spray equipment.
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.
Pest-Specific Use Directions:
Aphids: Consult university extension bulletins for local treatment recommendations.
Army Cutworms: Control may be reduced under high temperature conditions (greater than 80°F), under dry soil conditions, or if larvae are more than ½ inch long.
Armyworms: Suppression should be expected under conditions of heavy pest populations or large worms.
Cereal leaf beetle: Target application when eggs are near hatching and larvae is emerging as monitored by plant inspection.
Wheat Midge: For control of wheat midge, treatment is recommended when 75% of the wheat heads have emerged from the boot and when midge adults are found in the crop (1 midge per 4-5 heads). If possible, apply in the late afternoon or early evening when temperatures exceed 50°F and wind speed is less than 7 mph.
Specific Use Restrictions:
- Preharvest Interval: Do not apply within 14 days of harvest for forage and hay and within 28 days of harvest for grain or straw.
- Do not allow meat or dairy animals to graze or otherwise feed treated forage to livestock within 14 days of application.
- Do not feed straw from treated wheat within 28 days of application.
Do not allow livestock to graze or otherwise feed treated forage to livestock within 14 days of
Do not feed straw from treated wheat within 28 days of application.
Do not apply directly to bodies of water.
Do not apply product where runoff is likely to occur to aquatic habitats (including lakes, public reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes, natural ponds, estuaries or other natural waters).
Do not apply when weather conditions favor drift or runoff from treated areas.
For ground applications, the distance from treated areas to aquatic habitats (including lakes, public reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes, natural ponds, estuaries or other natural waters) must be 30 feet or more.
Do not make ground applications if wind speed is greater than 15 mph.
Do not apply at spray boom pressures greater than 45 psi.
Do not apply by air within 300 feet of aquatic habitats (including lakes, public reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes, natural ponds, estuaries or other natural waters).
Do not make aerial applications of Nufos 4E when wind speeds exceed 10 mph or when an atmospheric temperature inversion exists. Boom length should not exceed 75% of the wing span and release height for aerial applications should be no greater than 10 feet above the crop canopy.
0.5-1 pints / acre - Russian wheat aphid, greenbug, English grain aphid, brown wheat mite and grasshoppers
1 pint / acre - for other pests
