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


Mix with water as indicated below. Apply with ground application equipment as a foliar spray and ensure good upper and lower leaf coverage. Gallons of spray may vary with the size of plants and density of foliage. In any case, thorough coverage is essential for good control of Twospotted spider mite. When using concentrate sprays, the amount of water is reduced, but the amount of TEMPRANO should remain the same as for dilute sprays.

- Apply TEMPRANO when Twospotted spider mites reach treatment thresholds.

- For applications at 1/2 trellis growth (6-8 ft. height) apply 8-16 fl. oz./A in a minimum of 40 gals. of water/A.

- For applications beyond 1/2 trellis growth, do not use less than 16 fl. oz./A in a minimum of 100 gals. of water/A.

- Note: TEMPRANO may be used without a wetting agent.When necessary to improve the wetting of foliage and to smooth out spray deposits, a nonionic surfactant is recommended.

- Application Interval: If a second application is necessary to maintain control, wait at least 21 days before repeating application and repeat application only after an alternative miticide with a different mode of action has been used.

- Grazing: Do not allow livestock to graze in treated hops yards.
