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.

Rate used will depend on desired residual activity. If infestation continues, retreat in 7 days after a 1 pint application and within 14 days after a 2 pint application. Apply in sufficient water for thorough coverage using a minimum of 1 gallon of finished spray per acre with air equipment or 10 gallons of finished spray per acre with ground equipment.

- Do not make more than two foliar applications per season or more than one foliar application if Furadan 4F was used as a soil application pest
