Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

PISTACHIOS

Begin applications when green leaf tissue becomes visible and continue on a 14–21 day interval. Under severe disease conditions, use the higher rate and the shorter interval.

Note: Under certain conditions Orbit applications may cause smaller and/or greener leaves. Yields of pistachios displaying these characteristics have not been reduced due to Orbit treatments.

Application: Orbit is most effective when applied and allowed to dry before a rainfall. For best results, sufficient water volume should be used to provide thorough coverage. Orbit may be applied by either ground or aerial application (a minimum of 15 gal./A).

Specific Use Restrictions:

- Do not graze livestock in treated areas or cut treated cover crop for feed.
