General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

CHEMINOVA ACEPHATE 75SP is an insecticide for control of pests on selected agricultural crops and in certain non-crop areas. The active ingredient in CHEMINOVA ACEPHATE 75SP is acephate, a water-soluble insecticide readily absorbed by plant roots and foliage to give systemic control of feeding insects. Insect pests are generally controlled more effectively by CHEMINOVA ACEPHATE 75SP through ingestion than by contact.

Application of CHEMINOVA ACEPHATE 75SP to maintain control should be repeated only as directed.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE AND PRECAUTIONS ON THE LABEL MAY RESULT IN POOR INSECT CONTROL, CROP INJURY, AND/OR ILLEGAL RESIDUES.

Do not apply under conditions involving possible drift to food, forage or other plantings that might be damaged or the crops thereof rendered unfit for sale, use or consumption.
