FIELD CROPS - TREE NUTS
Some insects are known to develop resistance to insecticides after repeated use. As with any insecticide, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area.
This product contains a Group 4A insecticide called imidacloprid. Insect biotypes with acquired or inherent tolerance to group 4A products may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 4A products are used repeatedly as the predominant method of control of targeted species. This may eventually result in partial or total loss of control of those species by this product and other Group 4A products.
The active ingredient in this product is a member of neonicotinoid chemical group. Avoid using a block of more than three consecutive applications of this product and/or other Group 4A products having the same or similar mode of action. Following a neonicotinoid block of treatments, Nufarm strongly encourages the rotation to a block of applications with effective products of a different mode before using additional applications of neonicotinoid products.
Use a block rotation or windowed approach, along with other IPM practices, is considered an effective use strategy for preventing or delaying an insect’s pest’s ability to develop resistance to this class of chemistry.
Foliar applications of this product or other Group 4A products from the neonicotinoid chemical class should not be used on crops previously treated with a long-residual, soil-applied product from the neonicotinoid chemical class. Other Group 4A, neonicotinoid products used as foliar treatments include: Actara, Assail, CALYPSO, Centric, Intruder, Impulse, LEVERAGE, Pasada, Provado, TRIMAX PRO and Venom. Other 4A Group, neonicotinoid products used as soil/seed treatment include: ADMIRE PRO, Advise, Alias, Belay, Clutch, Couraze, Cruiser, Gaucho, Macho, Macho Max, Platinum, Venom and Widow.
Contact your local extension specialist, certified crop advisor and/or product manufacturer for additional insect resistance management recommendations.

This product should be applied as a directed or broadcast foliar spray.
Thorough coverage of foliage is necessary without runoff for optimum insecticidal efficacy. Use adequate spray volumes, properly calibrated application equipment and spray adjuvant if necessary to obtain through coverage.
Failure to provide adequate coverage and retention of this product on leaves and fruit may result in loss of insect control or delay in onset of activity. This product may be applied with properly calibrated ground or aerial application equipment. Minimum recommended spray volumes unless otherwise specified on crop specific recommended application sections are 10 gallons/Acre by ground applications and 5 gallons/Acre through aerial equipment. This product may also be applied by overhead chemigation (see additional CHEMIGATION DIRECTIONS FOR USE section below) if allowed in crop specific recommended application section.
Use of this product on crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting is generally not recommended but may be allowed under State specific supplemental labeling, As with any insecticide, care should be taken to minimize exposure of this product to honey bees and other pollinators. Use of this product on crops requiring bee pollination should be avoided during bloom and a minimum of 10 days prior to bloom. Additional information on this product uses for these crops and other questions may be obtained from the Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs, or local Nufarm representatives. Do not apply more than 0.5 lbs. active ingredient per acre, per crop season, regardless of formulation or method of application, unless specified within a crop specific recommended applications section for a given crop.
Refer in the label for tank mix information.
Apply specified rate per acre as foliar spray as pest populations begin to build. Thorough uniform coverage is necessary to achieve optimal control. Aspray adjuvant may be used to improve coverage. This product may not knockdown established and heavy insect populations. Two applications may be required to achieve control. Scout fields and retreat if needed. This product may be tank mixed with other insecticides as recommended for knockdown of pests or for improved control of other pests.
Notes and Restrictions
Minimum interval between applications: 6 days
Do not graze treated fields after any application of this product.
Minimum application volume (water): 50 GPA - ground application, 25 GPA - aerial application.
Do not apply pre-bloom or during bloom or when bees are actively foraging.
Applications for control of San Jose scale should be timed according to crawler stage, treating each successive generation. Two applications on a 10 to 14-day interval may be required to achieve control.
