General Information


Do Not Apply PROVADO In Enclosed Structures Such As Greenhouses Or Planthouses.

PROVADO should be applied as a directed or broadcast foliar spray. Thorough coverage of foliage is necessary without runoff for optimum insecticidal efficacy. Use adequate spray volumes, properly calibrated application equipment and spray adjuvant if necessary to obtain thorough coverage. Failure to provide adequate coverage and retention of PROVADO on leaves and fruit may result in loss of insect control or delay in onset of activity. PROVADO may be applied with properly calibrated ground or aerial application equipment.

Minimum recommended spray volumes unless otherwise specified on crop specific Recommended Application sections are 10 gallons/Acre by ground application and 5 gallons/Acre through aerial equipment. PROVADO may also be applied by overhead chemigation (see additional CHEMIGATION DIRECTIONS FOR USE section below) if allowed in crop specific Recommended Application section.

PROVADO use on crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting is generally not recommended but may be allowed under State specific supplemental labeling. As with any insecticide, care should be taken to minimize exposure of PROVADO to honey bees and other pollinators. Use of PROVADO on crops requiring bee pollination should be avoided during bloom and a minimum of 10 days prior to bloom. Additional information on PROVADO uses for these crops and other questions may be obtained from the Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs, consultants or local Bayer CropScience representatives.

Do not apply more than 0.5 lb 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


Recommended ApplicationsApply specified rate per acre as a broadcast or directed foliar spray to infested area as pest populations begin to build. Thorough uniform coverage is necessary to achieve optimum control. A spray adjuvant may be used to improve coverage. PROVADO may not knockdown established and heavy insect populations. Two applications may be required to achieve control. Scout fields and retreat if needed. PROVADO may be tank mixed with other insecticides as recommended for knockdown of pests or for improved control of other pests.

Crops contained within certain Crop Groups recognized by EPA are subject to change. Refer to EPA website ( for latest Crop Groups.


Minimum interval between applications: 5 days


PROVADO may be applied through properly calibrated ground and aerial application equipment. Thorough coverage with direct contact of the spray material to the target pests is required for optimum control. The addition of an organosilicone-based spray adjuvant at a rate not to exceed the adjuvant manufacturer's recommended use rate may improve coverage and control.


Not all crops and/or varieties listed above have been tested for phytotoxic effects. Without specific knowledge about a particular crop and variety, Bayer CropScience strongly recommends that only small areas or numbers of plants of each be treated and evaluated prior to commercial use.

Use not permitted in California unless otherwise directed by supplemental labeling.
