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.
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.

T-Band Treatment: Over open seed furrow, make an application in a 5 to 7 inch T-band. The spray nozzle must be placed behind the planter shoe, ahead of the press wheel and centered over the row. The table below will assist you in determining the appropriate BIFENTHRIN 2EC AG requirements per acre. The specified dosage must be applied in no less than 3 gallons of finished spray per acre.
In order to mix BIFENTHRIN 2EC AG with water or fertilizer, follow the following steps:
The spray tank should be filled half-way with water or liquid fertilizer. Mix in the correct amount of BIFENTHRIN 2EC AG. Add the remaining water or fertilizer. Mix thoroughly via agitation to create and maintain a uniform spray mixture.
You may use applications of BIFENTHRIN 2EC AG by itself or in recommended tank mixtures. You may also use applications of BIFENTHRIN 2EC AG in conjunction with in furrow pop-up fertilizers. In order to ensure that the mixture will remain in solution, you should perform a jar compatibility test using the correct ratio of BIFENTHRIN 2EC AG and fertilizer. During mixing and application, constant agitation is necessary.
