CUTTING/WHIP - COTTONWOOD LEAF BEETLE

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

CUTTING/WHIP

Applications

Moisture content of cuttings/whips prior to application, the solution concentration and the length of soaking interval interact to affect the amount of product absorbed into plant material. For a constant soaking interval of 24 hours, drier cuttings/whips absorb a higher quantity of solution and require a lower concentration.

Conversely, more hydrated cuttings/whips absorb less solution and require a higher concentration. Soaking of cuttings/whips should occur in a covered container in absence of UV light. Not all Populus sp. clones/varieties/hybrids have been tested for crop safety.Without specific knowledge about a particular Populus sp. clone/variety/hybrid, Nufarm recommends that small numbers of cuttings/whips of each be treated and evaluated prior to commercial use.

Apply this product (hydrated) cuttings/whips, soak plant material in specified solution concentration for 24 hours prior to cold storage. After removal from cold storage, plant as needed.

For previously hydrated cuttings/whips removed from cold storage, allow plant material to reach room temperature and soak in specified solution concentration for 24 hours prior to planting. Proper care should be taken in disposal of any residual soaking solution. Solution may be applied to existing trees or other registered crops as long as all product label precautions are restrictions are observe.

Application Rate:

13.3 to 26.6 - unhydrated cuttings/whips

26.6 to 40.1 - partially hydrated cuttings/whips

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.
