SWEET POTATOES - SWEET POTATO FLEA BEETLE AND SWEET POTATO WEEVIL
DIRECTIONS FOR USE OF WATER SOLUBLE BAGS
Thiodan 50WSB Insecticide is a wettable powder formulation individually packaged in 1-pound units in a translucent bag contained in an outer package.
DO NOT OPEN WATER SOLUBLE BAGS.
DO NOT ALLOW THE INNER BAG TO BECOME WET BEFORE ADDING TO SPRAY OR NURSE TANK.
DO NOT HANDLE THE INNER BAG WITH WET HANDS OR WET GLOVES.
RESEAL OUTER BAG TO PROTECT REMAINING INNER BAG(S).
Fill the spray tank with one-half of the total amount of water to be used. Open the outer wrapper of each product container to be used. Immediately dump the required number of bags into the spray tank.
Determine the total amount of Thiodan 50WSB Insecticide to be added to the spray tank, based on the rates in the crop recommendations. For each pound of wettable powder to be added to the spray tank, use one 1-pound bag. For example, if it is determined that 10 pounds of Thiodan 50WSB Insecticide should be added to the spray tank, add ten 1-pound bags. Where rates are expressed as fractions of pounds, prepare the tank load to the lower of the nearest whole pound.
Operate the agitator while mixing. Cooler water temperatures increase the time needed to completely dissolve the bags. Mix thoroughly to fully disperse and suspend the wettable powder. Maintain agitation during storage in nurse or supply tank, and during application.
Thiodan 50WSB Insecticide is compatible with most commonly used pesticides and liquid fertilizers. However, the water-soluble bags must be completely dissolved before adding any other products. Do not use Thiodan 50WSB Insecticide in a tank mix with products containing boron, chromium, or other micronutrients.
