BULB VEGETABLES - ONION THRIPS

General Information

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Use low rate under light to moderate infestation. Higher rates should be used under heavy insect pressure. The rate of application is variable according to insect pressure, timing of spray and field scouting. Do not exceed maximum allowable rate.

Under hot and dry conditions, increase the spray volume and add appropriate spray adjuvant, but only to those crops which have previously demonstrated a tolerance to the adjuvant(s) under these conditions.

Preventive Use

For cutworm, armyworm, or stalk borer control, Mustang insecticide may be applied before, during, or after planting. For soil-incorporated applications, use higher rates for improved control. Do not exceed maximum allowable rate.
