STRAWBERRY (POSTHARVEST USE ON PERENNIAL CROPS) - PESTS CONTROLLED

General Information

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

Apply the product to deliver the active ingredient into the seed or root-zone of crop. Failure to place the product into root-zone may result in loss of control or delay in onset of activity. The product may be applied with ground or chemigation application. DO NOT apply with aerial application equipment. Broadcast, foliar applications are only recommended to seedling flats or trays, or where product is intended to be washed from foliage to soil prior to drying on foliage.

Optimum activity results from applications to the root-zone of plants to be protected. The earlier the product is available to a developing plant, the earlier the protection begins. The product is continuously taken into the roots over a long period of time and the systemic nature of the product allows movement from roots through the xylem tissue to all vegetative parts of the plant. This results in extended residual activity, the control of insects and the prevention and/or reduction of virus transmission or symptom expression, and plant health benefits. The rate applied affects the length of the plant protection period. The higher specified rates are intended for when infestations occur later in crop development, or where pest pressure is continuous. The product will generally not control insects infesting flowers, blooms or fruit. Additional crop protection may be required for insects feeding in or on these plant parts and for insects not listed in the crop-specific, pests controlled sections of the label. Suppression, or less than adequate control of certain diseases and insect pests including reduced feeding, may also result from applications of the product. Adequate control of these pests/diseases may require supplemental control measures.

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

Pre-mix with water or other appropriate diluent prior to application. Keep the product and water suspension agitated to avoid settling.

DO NOT apply more than 0.5 lbs active ingredient per acre, per year, regardless of formulation or method of application, unless specified within a crop-specific, Application Instructions section for a given crop.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

STRAWBERRY (POSTHARVEST USE ON PERENNIAL CROPS)

Applications:

Apply a single application post harvest to coincide with renovation of strawberry fields and during active egg-laying period of beetles. Apply specified dosage of the product in one of the following methods:

1. As a ground spray via boom or backpack sprayer in a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre;

2. As a row-band spray using an adjusted amount of product based on the treated row band area in proportion to the amount required per full acre. The band width should be equivalent to the width of the anticipated fruiting bed;

3. As a chemigation application with 600 to 1,000 gallons of water followed by 0.10 to 0.25 inch irrigation.

Important Note:

All soil-surface applications must be followed by 0.25 inch of rainfall or overhead irrigation water per acre within 2 hours of application. Failure to adequately incorporate the product into egg-deposition zone may result in decreased activity of beetle grubs.

Not for use on crops grown for seed unless allowed by state-specific supplemental labeling.

Pre-Harvest Interval

14 days

Restricted Entry Interval

12 hours

Exception: If the product is soil-injected or soil-incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
