ALFALFA - ALFALFA AND EGYPTIAN WEEVIL, PEA APHID, AND SNOUT BEETLE
Soil Application Precautions
For standard planters and applications systems, do not start insecticide application until planter enters the soil, and stop insecticide application before pulling planter out of the soil. If contaminated seed is exposed to the surface cover completely with soil.
For standard planters equipped with in-furrow systems having automatic shut-off systems (e.g., Custom Delivery Systems (CDS), Custom Injection Systems (CIS)) be sure shut-off devices are maintained and operating properly.
DO NOT FLUSH, DRAIN OR PUMP TANK, LINES OR RINSATE ON NON-CROPLAND SURFACES. Dispose of residual spray mixture left in tank, line(s) and/or rinsate from first flushing of tank and line(s) by application to cropland as directed on the label.
Pints of Furadan 4F Per Acre (Do not cut or graze within)
0.5 pint/acre (7days)
1 pint/acre (14days)
2 pints/acre (28days)
Method of Application:
- Apply as a foliar spray when insect populations and/or damage reaches economic thresholds, refer to Cooperative Extension Pest Management Guidelines. On short alfalfa early in the season, or on stubble following cutting that cannot be checked with a sweep net, treatment is indicated when growth is retarded because of weevil feeding. Minimum gallonage requirements. Ten gallons of finished spray per acre with ground equipment, two gallons per acre with aircraft.
- Apply only to fields planted to pure stands of alfalfa. Do not move bees to alfalfa fields within 7 days of application. For waterfowl protection do not apply on fields in proximity of waterfowl nesting areas and/or fields where waterfowl are known to repeatedly feed. Observe the indicated number of days after application before cutting or grazing.
NOTE: New York State only for snout beetle control.
