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 Applications

Apply specified rate per acre as foliar spray as pest populations begin to build. Thorough uniform coverage is necessary to achieve optimal 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.


Minimum interval between applications: 6 days

Do not apply pre-bloom or during bloom or when bees are actively foraging.


Applications for control of San Jose scale should be timed according to crawler stage, treating each successive generation. Two applications on a 10 to 14-day interval may be required to achieve control.

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

Pre-Harvest Interval

7 days

Restricted Entry Interval

12 hours
