General Information

RENOUNCE 20WP may be used for control of a broad spectrum of insect pests by contact and ingestion. Because of this contact activity, good spray coverage of the crop is needed for the highest level of control.


Not for Use in Greenhouses

Unless specified otherwise in the crop-specific recommended application section, RENOUNCE may be applied by the following methods:

Foliar Application

Foliar applications may be made using properly calibrated ground sprayers, fixed- or rotary-winged aircraft or through properly designed, sprinkler-type, chemigation equipment. See Chemigation Application directions below. Thorough and uniform coverage of plants, with direct contact of the spray mixture to the target pests, is required for satisfactory control.

Avoid application procedures where thorough coverage of plant is not possible. Applications made with less than thorough coverage may result in slower activity and/or less overall control from a single application than an application made with higher water volumes.

See general, Spray Drift Reduction Management, section below for application guidelines on all application methods.

Ground applications should be made in a minimum of 10 gallons/A unless specified otherwise in crop-specific recommended application section.

Aerial applications should be made in a minimum of 2 gallons/A unless specified otherwise in crop-specific recommended application section, however 5 gallons/A are recommended. See crop specific gallonage requirements. Do not apply as Ultra-Low Volume (ULV). Aerial applications made to dense canopies may not provide sufficient coverage of lower leaves or interior plant portions to provide pest control. Higher labeled rates of RENOUNCE may be necessary for aerial applications.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions



For all crops, apply specific dosage of RENOUNCE at early threshold for target pest, as population begins to develop. Degree of control or suppression of additional labeled pests will be determined, in part by the stage of pest development at application and infestation level of those pests.

Recommended application rates within the label are based on full-size mature trees and vines. Application timing should be based on careful scouting and local economic thresholds. Use the higher rates for moderate to heavy insect pressure. Lower rates are generally adequate for smaller trees/vines or low to moderate insect pressure but require careful scouting and may require more frequent application.

RENOUNCE is a Wettable Powder formulation and is active by contact and ingestion. Thorough coverage of foliage and fruit is necessary for optimum performance.
