ALFALFA AND ALFALFA GROWN FOR SEED - ALFALFA SEED CHALCID (ADULT), ALFALFA WEEVIL, ETC.
GENERAL DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Initial and residual control are contingent upon thorough crop coverage. Apply with ground or aerial equipment using sufficient water to obtain full coverage of foliage. Apply in a minimum of 2 gallons per acre by air or 10 gallons per acre by ground unless otherwise specified in the label. When foliage is dense or pest pressure is high (heavier insect or egg pressure, larger larval stages), use of higher application volumes and/or higher use rates may improve initial and residual control. For cutworm control, the product may be applied before, during, or after planting. For soil-incorporated applications, use higher rates for improved control.
The product is a Group 3 Insecticide, some insects are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly for control. Because the development of resistance cannot be predicted, the use of the product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. Consult your local or state agricultural authorities for details.
If resistance to the product develops in your area, the product, or other products with a similar mode of action, may not provide adequate control. If poor performance cannot be attributed to improper application or extreme weather conditions, a resistant strain of insect may be present. If you experience difficulty with control and resistance is a reasonable cause, immediately consult your local company representative or agricultural advisor for the best alternative method of control for your area.
ALFALFA AND ALFALFA GROWN FOR SEED
- Apply only to fields planted to pure stands of alfalfa.
- Apply as required by scouting. Timing and frequency of applications should be based upon insect populations reaching locally determined economic thresholds.
- Apply with ground or air equipment using sufficient water to obtain full coverage of foliage. Apply in a minimum of 2 gallons per acre by air or 10 gallons per acre by ground. When foliage is dense and/or pest populations are high, 5 to 10 gallons per acre by air or 20 gallons per acre by ground and higher use rates are recommended. Use higher rates for increased residual control.
- Avoid application when bees are actively foraging by applying during the early morning or during the evening hours. Be aware of bee hazard resulting from a cool evening and/or morning dew. It may be advisable to remove bee shelters during and for 2 to 3 days following application. Avoid direct application to bee shelters.
- Do not apply within 1 day of harvest for forage or within 7 days of harvest for hay.
- Fall Armyworm: Use higher rates for large larvae.
