GENERAL INFORMATION

THIS PRODUCT MUST BE LOADED AND MIXED IN A CLOSED SYSTEM.

KEEP WATER SOLUBLE PACKETS IN THIS CONTAINER AND STORE IN A COOL DRY PLACE, BUT NOT BELOW FREEZING (32°F). PROTECT FROM HEAT, KEEP AWAY FROM OPEN FLAME. IF PRODUCT FREEZES OR IS SUBJECTED TO LOW TEMPERATURES, DO NOT APPLY DIRECT HEAT TO THAW OR WARM UP. ENTIRE INNER PACKETS DISSOLVE IN WATER. AFTER OPENING OUTER BAG, DROP THE REQUIRED UNOPENED INNER PACKETS INTO SPRAY TANK AS DIRECTED. DO NOT EXCESSIVELY HANDLE WATER SOLUBLE PACKET OR EXPOSE IT TO MOISTURE, SINCE THIS MAY CAUSE BREAKAGE.

MIXING:

The enclosed packets containing Azinphosmethyl 50W insecticide are water soluble. Do not allow packet to become wet prior to adding to the spray tank. Do not handle with wet hands. Reseal outer carton to protect remaining packets.

To prepare the spray mixture, drop the required number of unopened packets, as determined under recommended application, into the spray tank, while filling with water to the desired level. Operate the agitator while mixing. Depending on the water temperature and degree of agitation, the packets should be completely dissolved within approximately 5 minutes from the time they were added to the water.

DOSAGE:

Use specified dosage of Azinphosmethyl 50W in the amount of water necessary to give complete coverage of the foliage.

Determine the total amount of wettable powder to be added to the spray tank based on the rates under recommendations for application section. For each one pound of wettable powder to be added to the spray tank, use one 1 pound packet. The type of equipment used will determine the concentration required; however, use of these packets is not recommended for making highly concentrated mixtures.

COMPATIBILITY:

Azinphosmethyl 50W in soluble packets is physically compatible with many registered pesticides and liquid fertilizers. If you have no experience with the combination you are considering, you should conduct tests to determine physical compatibility.

To determine physical compatibility, pour the recommended proportions of each chemical with the same proportion of water as will be present in the chemical supply tank into a suitable container, mix thoroughly and allow to stand for five minutes. If the combination remains mixed, or can be remixed readily, the mixture can be considered physically compatible. Combinations should be kept agitated and should be applied immediately. Do not allow combination to sit for prolonged periods in the chemical supply tank.

SPRAYING:

APPLICATION BY BACKPACK OR HANDHELD SPRAYERS IS PROHIBITED.

Work to windward; protect sprayer operators from drift or mist. When low volumes of spray are applied, complete coverage and thorough application are essential for most effective results.
