GREENHOUSE VEGETABLES - APHIDS AND WHITEFLIES

General Information

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS

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.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

GREENHOUSE VEGETABLES

Mature plants in production greenhouses.

Apply specified dosage in a minimum of 16 gallons of water for tomatoes and 21 gallons of water for cucumbers using soil drenches, micro-irrigation, drip irrigation, or hand-held or motorized calibrated irrigation equipment. Do not apply to immature plants since phytotoxicity may occur.

Applications should be made when infestation pressure surpasses threshold and beneficials are not able to maintain pest populations below damage thresholds. Repellency of bumble bee pollinators and negative effects on some beneficials (Orius sp.) can occur when this product is applied.

Many varieties of vegetables have been tested for tolerance to this product and show good safety. However, certain varieties may show more sensitivity to this product. Therefore, treatment of a few plants is recommended before treating the whole greenhouse.

Not for use on crops grown for seed unless allowed by state-specific supplemental labeling.

Method
Restricted Entry Interval

12 hours

Exception: If the product is soil-injected or soil-incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
