SEEDED GRAPES - EMPEROR GRAPES - CLUSTER DIP

General Information

IMPORTANT

DO NOT APPLY THIS PRODUCT THROUGH ANY TYPE OF IRRIGATION SYSTEM.

NOTE: Gibberellic Acid is an extremely potent plant growth regulator. For best results, read all directions for use thoroughly. Consult your local experiment station specialist, distributor, or the Nufarm agricultural specialist in your area for the spray schedule best suited to your conditions.

Discard any unused spray material at the end of each day. Prepare solution concentrations by mixing the required amount of product with water only in a clean, empty spray tank. Refer to individual crop sections and rate conversion tables provided in the labeling for the amount of GIBGRO 4LS to be applied.

Use only as directed. The label must be read thoroughly and understood before making applications. Effectiveness requires that all parts of plant or crop must receive spray or desired result will not occur, so spray thoroughly. When a range of rates is indicated, use the concentration and spray volume recommended locally.

Data concerning the compatibility of GIBGRO 4LS with other agricultural compounds is not available, except where specified.

COMPATABILITY

To assure the compatibility of GIBGRO 4LS with other products, pour the products into a small container of water in the correct proportions.

After thorough mixing, let stand for 5 minutes. If the combination remains mixed, or can be remixed readily, the mixture is compatible.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

GRAPES

For all grapes, apply by ground sprayer. Apply as a dilute or concentrate spray in sufficient water to ensure thorough wetting. Use 100 to 500 gallons per acre as a dilute spray according to foliage density, or 30 to 80 gallons per acre as a concentrate spray, unless specified otherwise. High amounts of Gibberellic Acid may reduce fruitfulness (cluster counts and cluster size) the following year in some growing regions and for some cultivars. Additionally, berry skin color development, sugars accumulation and overall maturation may be delayed. Timing of subsequent sprays will be dictated by experience in the vineyard to be sprayed and temperatures occurring during the interim between sprays. Sprays made after 15-20 days from the first sizing spray will be less effective. Do not exceed maximum application rate. It is important to wet all berries thoroughly.

SEEDED GRAPES (EMPEROR GRAPES)

NOTE: High amounts of Gibberellic Acid may delay berry skin color development, sugars accumulation and overall maturation. Whole vine application may reduce fruitfulness (cluster counts and cluster size) the following year.

To increase berry size and reduce berry shrivel:

Direct spray to grape clusters or cluster dip – Prepare a spray solution of 40 to 50 ppm (16 to 20 grams a.i. per 100 gallons water) as a cluster dip or spray directly to clusters without spraying foliage or buds.

Method
Restricted Entry Interval

4 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.
