TOBACCO - APHIDS AND FLEA BEETLE
Applications of this product should direct active ingredient into the seed or root-zone of crop. Failure to place this product into root-zone may result in loss of control or delay in onset of activity. This product may be applied with ground or chemigation application. Do not apply with aerial application equipment. Broadcast, foliar applications are only recommended to seedling flats or trays, or where product is intended to be washed from foliage to soil prior to drying on foliage.
Optimum activity results from applications to the root-zone of plants to be protected. The earlier this product is available to a developing plant, the earlier the protection begins. This product is continuously taken into the roots over a long period of time and the systemic nature of this product allows movement from roots through the xylem tissue to all vegetative parts of the plant. This results in extended residual activity, the control of insects and the prevention and/or reduction of virus transmission or symptom expression, and plant health benefits. The rate applied affects the length of the plant protection period. Higher rates are recommended when infestations occur later in crop development, or where pest pressure is continuous. This product will generally not control insects infesting flowers, blooms or fruit. Additional crop protection may be required for insects feeding in, or on these plant parts and for insects not listed in the crop-specific, pests controlled sections of the label.
Suppression, or less than complete control of certain diseases and insect pests including reduced feeding may also result from applications of this product. Complete control of these pests/diseases may require supplemental control measures.
Use of this product on crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting is generally not recommended. As with any insecticide, care should be taken to minimize exposure of this product to honey bees and other pollinators. Additional information on uses of this product for these crops and other questions, may be obtained from the Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs or local Nufarm representatives.
This product should be pre-mixed with water or other appropriate diluent prior to application. Keep this product and water suspension agitated to avoid settling.
Do not apply more than 0.5 lbs active ingredient per acre, per crop season, regardless of formulation or method of application, unless specified within a crop-specific, Recommended Applications section for a given crop.
Apply specified dosage of this product in one of the following methods:
1. Uniform, broadcast foliar spray to seedlings in trays (tray drench) not more than 7 days prior to transplanting followed immediately by overhead irrigation to wash this product from foliage into potting media. Failure to wash this product from foliage may result in a reduction in pest control. Transplants should be handled carefully during setting to avoid dislodging treated potting media from roots.
2. In-furrow spray or transplant-water drench during setting.
3. Chemigation into root-zone through low-pressure drip, trickle, microsprinkler or equivalent equipment.
Important Note: Proper tray drench applications of this product have been shown to be the most efficacious method of application. However, the specified rate of this product may be applied as combination of the tray drench in the planthouse and/or transplant-water drench in field. Adverse growing conditions may cause a delay in uptake of this product into the plant and a delay in control.
