DIRECTIONS FOR APPLICATION
ORNAMENTAL PLANTS GROWN IN NURSERIES ONLY
Do not use on ornamental plants grown in greenhouses, Christmas tree and conifer plantations, landscapes, interiorscapes and residential, public, recreational, commercial, industrial and institutional establishments.
This product is intended for use by the commercial grower or commercial applicator in conventional hydraulic sprayers, ground applicators, airplane sprayers, or by chemigation. Do not apply when weather conditions favor drift of spray from areas treated. Repeat applications as necessary unless otherwise specified. Consult your state experiment station or state extension service for proper timing of applications.
Dimethoate 4E has systemic and contact activity against a broad spectrum of piercing, sucking and chewing insects; however, it may not control certain organophosphate resistant species.
For proper mixing, spray tank should be at least three-quarters filled with water before adding Dimethoate 4E. Mechanical agitation or re-circulation through pump bypass to tank is usually sufficient for maintaining a good dispersion.
AERIAL APPLICATION: Apply at least one gallon of finished spray per acre. Apply at least 5 gallons finished spray per acre in California.
AUTOMATIC FLAGGING DEVICES SHOULD BE USED WHENEVER FEASIBLE.
IF HUMAN FLAGGERS ARE EMPLOYED THEY MUST WEAR THE PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AND RESPIRATOR SPECIFIED ON THE LABEL.
GROUND APPLICATION: Use water for dilution and apply at least 5 gallons of finished spray per acre.
High Pressure Handwand Equipment:
When applications are made by high pressure handwand equipment, the maximum application rate for all crops and use-patterns is 0.0025 pounds active ingredient per gallon.
Do not use on crops grown in greenhouses.
When insect pest population is high, use the higher label rate.
