FIELD CORN (GRAIN AND SILAGE), FIELD CORN GROWN FOR SEED, AND POPCORN (FOLIAR APPLICATION) - BANKS GRASS MITE, CARMINE MITE, TWOSPOTTED SPIDER MITE

General Information

RESISTANCE

Repeated use of certain insecticides may create resistance in some target pests, resulting in a decrease of control. Bifenthrin 2EC AG should be used in accordance with treatment area-appropriate strategies for resistance management. For further information regarding resistance management strategies for your treatment area, consult local or state pest management authorities.

If you are unable to attain adequate control of a target pest and this loss of control cannot be explained by misapplication or weather extremes, it is possible that resistance has developed within the target population. If this appears to have occurred, promptly seek advice from your pest management advisor or company representation regarding alternative control techniques.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

The timing of application, infestation levels and field scouting will impact what application rate should be used:

For Light – Moderate Pest Pressure: use lower rates.

For Mite Control, Heavy Pest Pressure or applications in arid climates: use higher rates.

To prevent unwanted exposure to bodies of water, maintain a 10 foot-wide non-cultivated vegetative strip filter.

In New York State this product may not be applied within 100 feet (using ground equipment) to 300 feet (using aerial equipment) of coastal marshes or streams that drain into coastal marshes.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

FIELD CORN (GRAIN AND SILAGE), FIELD CORN GROWN FOR SEED, AND POPCORN FOLIAR APPLICATION

When applying by air, use no less than 2- 5 gallons of finished spray per acre; when applying by ground equipment, use no less than 10 gallons per acre. In order to improve effectiveness of product when applying by air, particularly when initial populations exceed normal limits, you may use 5 gallons of finished spray per acre. If treatment is to be made by aerial application, 1 to 2 qts. of emulsified oil can be substituted for 1 to 2 qts. of water. You must thoroughly cover the treatment area in order to obtain the desired level of control.

For Control of Mites: To control Banks Grass Mite, apply product at the time colonies initially form and prior to discoloration or leaf damage. Must be applied before dispersal above the bottom third of the plant occurs.

For Twospotted Spider Mite and Carmine Mite Control: Apply product at the time colonies initially form and prior to discoloration or leaf damage. Must be applied before widespread mite dispersal throughout the canopy occurs.

It is necessary to use higher rates to control heavier initial populations and when corn is under stress of drought or heat conditions. It has been shown in the field that dimethoate at 0.5 lb active per acre in tank mixture has provided adequate control under similar conditions.

For Mite Control in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Arizona: When applying by air, use no less than 5 gallons of finished spray per acre; when applying by ground equipment, use no less than 10 gallons per acre.

Per season, use no more than 0.3 lb. A.I./A. for all applications including foliar applications and PRE & PPI at plant applications.

Do not graze livestock in areas of application. Do not use treated crops for feed.

Do not use ultra low volume (ULV) applications.

If heavy rainfall is predicted, aerial or ground applications to corn are prohibited.

Do not use this product on corn in any coastal county.
