WALNUT - WALNUT BLIGHT
This product can be applied from aircraft and ground spraying equipment. Depending upon equipment used and the specific crop, the volume applied per acre differs. Refer to the general \"MINIMUM RECOMMENDED SPRAY VOLUME\" table on the label.
This product may be applied as an aerial, ground dilute or ground concentrate spray unless specifically directed otherwise by crop. When selecting a use rate for this product, do not apply less than the label recommended minimum amount. Under heavy disease pressure or when conditions favor such, use the higher rate and shorter spray intervals specified for each crop. In addition, use the higher rates for larger mature tree crops.
The per acre use rate of this product is applicable for both dilute and concentrate spraying.
Complete spray coverage is essential to assure optimum performance from this product. When treating on a concentrate basis or by aerial application, unless you have had specific previous experience, it is advisable to test for compatibility and crop tolerance prior to full scale commercial utilization.
While volume is important in obtaining full spray coverage, often factors such as foliage density, environmental conditions and sprayer calibration have a greater impact. Always be sure that sprayers are calibrated to manufacturer’s specifications and environmental conditions are within those recommended by state and local regulatory authorities. When mixing, fill spray tank one-half full with water. Add this product slowly to tank while hydraulic or mechanical agitation is operating and continue filling with water. Spreaders, stickers, spray and crop oil (cleared for application to growing crops) should be added last. If compatibility is in question, use the compatibility jar test before mixing a whole tank.
Note: THIS PRODUCT SHOULD NOT BE APPLIED IN A SPRAY SOLUTION HAVING A pH LESS THAN 6.5 OR GREATER THAN 9.0 AS PHYTOTOXICITY MAY OCCUR.
See label for chemigation application information.
APPLICATION FOR FROST INJURY PROTECTION
Bacterial Ice Nucleation Inhibitor: Application of this product made to all crops listed on the label at rates and stages of growth indicated on the label, at least 24 hours prior to anticipated frost conditions, will afford control of ice nucleating bacteria (Pseudomonas syringae, Erwinia herbicola and Pseudomonas fluorescens) and may thereby provide some protection against light frost. The degree of frost protection will vary with weather conditions and other factors. Not recommended for those geographical areas where weather conditions favor severe frost.
USE INSTRUCTIONS: Apply first application spray at early pre-bloom prior to when catkins are partially expanded. Make additional applications during bloom and early nutlet stage or as needed when free moisture occurs. Thorough coverage of catkins, leaves and nutlets is essential for effective control. When applied as a dilute spray, 1 pint of Summer oil emulsion may be added per 100 gallons of spray.
Note: Adequate control may not be obtained when copper tolerant species of Xanthomonas bacteria are present.
See table on the label for Minimum Recommended Spray Volume.
