General Information


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



Apply the product in one of the following cuttings/whips soaking methods:

1) For freshly cut (hydrated) cuttings/whips, soak plant material in specified solution concentration for 24 hours prior to cold storage. After removal from cold storage, plant as needed.

2) For previously hydrated cuttings/whips removed from cold storage, allow plant material to reach room temperature and soak in specified solution concentration for 24 hours prior to planting.

Proper care should be taken in disposal of any residual soaking solution. Solution may be applied to existing trees or other registered crops as long as all product label precautions and restrictions are observed.

Important Notes:

Moisture content of cuttings/whips prior to application, the solution concentration and the length of soaking interval interact to affect the amount of product absorbed into plant material. For a constant soaking interval of 24 hours, drier cuttings/whips absorb a higher quantity of solution and require a lower concentration. Conversely, more hydrated cuttings/whips absorb less solution and require a higher concentration. Soaking of cuttings/whips should occur in a covered container in absence of UV light. Not all Populus sp. clones/varieties/hybrids have been tested for crop safety. Without specific knowledge about a particular Populus sp. clone/variety/hybrid, a small number of cuttings/whips of each should be treated and evaluated prior to commercial use.

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

See details for Field Application Recommendations.

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.
