General Information

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

Some fruits and other plants are susceptible to injury from sulfur under certain climatic conditions. The user is advised not to use sulfur on any crop unless local use has proved that sulfur does not damage crops in that locality.

USE PRECAUTIONS: Do not use this product within 30 days of an oil spray at any stage other than dormant (deciduous only) unless prior experience in your immediate area has shown that shorter intervals will not result in phytotoxic injury. Green Cypress Lime-Sulfur may burn foliage when temperature is high; avoid applying this material during very hot period of the day (above 85°F). Keep container tightly closed when not in use. If crust should form on the surface, break through the crust so product will pour.

Do not apply, or allow to drift, to painted surfaces as a permanent stain may result. Do not combine Lime-Sulfur with other pesticides unless previous experience has shown them to be compatible. If tank mixing, always follow the more restrictive label directions. This product cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing. Read entire label and use strictly in accordance with label directions.

Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system. Do not use this product for crop thinning.

Unless otherwise indicated, the following use rates are per 100 gallons of water. Where a rate range is given, use the higher rates when disease is severe or where disease was severe in the previous season.

Since Monterey AgResources cannot make the determination of the tree density and row spacing in any given orchard, in order to prevent potential crop injury, the responsibility of using the proper spray equipment, correct calibration for the sprayer, correct label rate and uniform distribution of the spray pattern are the responsibility of the grower/applicator.

DILUTE – For general dilute applications, use higher gallonage (100-400 gal/A) on larger trees where required. NOTE: Rust mites and scale insects have been shown to be more effectively controlled with dilute or semi-dilute applications.

CONCENTRATE – For concentrate spray applications, use 100 gal/A. NOTE: When using concentrate sprays do not exceed 12 gallons of Green Cypress Lime-Sulfur Solution per 100 gallons on a per acre basis.
