General Information


Temprano is an emulsifiable concentrate that will control certain pests on the crops listed on the label when the product is applied according to the Directions for Use. Thorough coverage of foliage is essential for good mite and insect control.


- Phytotoxicity: TEMPRANO has been tested for phytotoxicity and has a wide margin of safety on a variety of crops. TEMPRANO has also been shown to be compatible with many commonly used pesticides, crop oils, and nutritional sprays. However, since it is not possible to test a large number of possible mixtures, the user should pre-test any proposed mixtures with TEMPRANO to ensure the physical compatibility and lack of phytotoxic effects.

- New York State Restriction: Do not apply TEMPRANO with aircraft in New York State.


Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

Spray Drift Precautions for TEMPRANO Use on Celeriac, Cucurbits, Fruiting Vegetables, Grapes, Leafy Vegetables, Potatoes, and Strawberries.

- Do not apply with ground application equipment within 25 ft., or with aircraft within 150 ft. of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes, potholes, natural ponds, estuaries, or commercial fish farm ponds.

- All aerial and ground application equipment must be properly calibrated, using appropriate carriers, and maintained. For aerial applications, mount the spray boom on the aircraft in a manner that minimizes drift caused by wing tip vortices. Use the minimum practical boom length but do not exceed 75% of wingspan or rotor diameter.

- Use the largest droplet size consistent with pest control. Minimize the formation of very small droplets by selecting appropriate nozzles, orienting nozzles away from the air stream as much as possible, and avoiding excessive spray boom pressure. Release the spray at the lowest height consistent with pest control and flight safety. Avoid application more than 10 ft. above the crop canopy.

- Make aerial or ground applications when wind velocity favors on-target product deposition (approximately 3 to 10 mph). Do not apply when wind velocity exceeds 15 mph. Avoid applications when wind gusts approach 15 mph. Avoiding applications when wind direction is toward the aquatic area can reduce risk of exposure to aquatic areas. Do not cultivate within 25 ft. (10 ft. for cotton) of the aquatic area to allow growth of a vegetative filter strip.

- Low humidity and high temperatures increase the evaporation rate of spray droplets and therefore increase the likelihood of spray drifting to aquatic areas. Avoid spraying during conditions of low humidity and/or high temperature.

- Do not make aerial or ground applications during temperature inversions. Inversions are characterized by stable air and temperatures that increase with height above the ground.Mist or fog may indicate the presence of an inversion in humid areas.The applicator may detect the presence of an inversion by producing smoke and observing a smoke layer near the ground surface.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions


Note: TEMPRANO may be applied with ground application equipment or aircraft. For best control of mites, apply TEMPRANO with ground application equipment.With aerial application, spray coverage and the resulting control of mites is less than with ground application. For this reason, the user accepts all liability for the level and duration of control of mites when TEMPRANO is aerially applied.

- Mites, leafminers, Thrips palmi, and Colorado potato beetle: Use 8 fl. oz./A for low to moderate infestations and 16 fl. oz./A for severe infestations.

- Repeat application as necessary to maintain control.

- Note: TEMPRANO may be used without a wetting agent. Spreading and penetrating surfactants can improve insect control.When necessary to improve the wetting of foliage and to smooth out spray deposits, a nonionic surfactant is recommended. Do not use binder or sticker-type surfactants.

Prohibited Use: For resistance management, do not use on fruiting vegetables grown for transplanting.

- Amount of Water: Do not apply in less than 20 gals. of water/A with ground application equipment. Do not apply in less than 5 gals. of water/A with aircraft. Under conditions such as high pest populations, dense foliage, or adverse application conditions (such as high temperatures) use a greater volume of water to insure adequate coverage.

- Application Interval: Wait at least 7 days before repeating application, but do not make more than 2 sequential applications.

- Application Method: Ground or aerial application permitted; however, do not apply with aircraft in New York State.
