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

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.

Aerial applications should be made in a minimum of 2 gallons/A, 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 to provide pest control. Higher labeled rates of Renounce 20WP 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.

Application timing should be based on careful scouting and local economic thresholds. RENOUNCE may be applied before, during, or after planting. Use the higher rates for moderate to heavy insect pressure. Lower rates are adequate for 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 is necessary for optimum performance.


Pre-Harvest Interval (PHI): 7 days (minimum time between final application and threshing for seed).

Maximum RENOUNCE allowed per 14-day interval: 4.0 ounces/A (0.05 lb AI/Acre).

Maximum RENOUNCE allowed per crop season: 8.0 ounces/A (0.1 lb AI/Acre).

For aerial applications, apply in a minimum of 5 GPA.
