SUGAR BEET - FOLIAR APPLICATION
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.
For cutworm, armyworm, or stalk borer control, Mustang Max EC insecticide may be applied before, during, or after planting. For soil-incorporated applications, use higher rates for improved control.
Foliar Applications :
Apply Mustang Max EC at the rate of 2.24 to 4 ounces per acre. For control of sugar beet root maggot adults apply at the rate of 4 ounces per acre. A second application 1-2 weeks later may be needed.
Make applications when insect populations reach economic threshold levels. Refer to local Cooperative Extension Pest Management Guidelines and/or scouting results.
Apply by air or by ground equipment using sufficient water to obtain full coverage of foliage (minimum of 2 gallons per acre by air and 10 gallons per acre by ground).
Observe all spray drift precautions on the EPA registered label.
Root Maggot Control: For Idaho only.
