CEREAL GRAINS - WHEAT, WHEAT HAY AND TRITICALE - ARMYWORM, FLEA BEETLE, APHID ETC.
GENERAL DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Initial and residual control are contingent upon thorough crop coverage. Apply with ground or air equipment using sufficient water to obtain full coverage of foliage. Apply in a minimum of 2 gals./A by air or 10 gals./A by ground unless otherwise specified in the label. When foliage is dense or pest pressure is high (heavier insect or egg pressure, larger larval stages), use of higher application volumes and/or higher use-rates may improve initial and residual control.
For cutworm control, LAMBDA T may be applied before, during, or after planting. For soil incorporated applications, use higher rates for improved control.
Wheat, Wheat Hay and Triticale
- Apply as required by scouting, usually at intervals of 5 or more days. Timing and frequency of applications should be based upon insect populations reaching locally-determined economic thresholds.
- Apply with ground or air equipment using sufficient water and application methods to obtain full coverage of foliage. When applying by air, apply in a minimum of 2 gals. of water/A.
- Do not allow livestock to graze in treated areas or harvest treated wheat forage as feed for meat or dairy animals within 7 days after treatment. Do not feed treated straw to meat or dairy animals within 30 days after the last treatment.
English Grain Aphid, Russian Wheat Aphid, Bird Cherry-Oat Aphid: Best control is obtained before insects begin to roll leaves. Once wheat has started to boot, LAMBDA T may provide suppression only. Higher rates and increased coverage will be necessary.
Hessian Fly: Make applications when adults emerge.
