General Information

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS

Tetrasul 4s5 is a fungicide, insecticide and miticide that contains Lime Sulfur and a white wetting agent. Spray to cover foliage until wet. If spray contacts concrete and white, painted surfaces, discoloration of this surface may occur.

Faulty spray equipment, highly concentrated materials, or extremes of weather during or following spraying may lead to fruit or foliage injury. The risk of spray injury is greater when drought stress exists. The user is advised not to use Tetrasul 4s5 on any crop unless local use has proved that Lime Sulfur does not damage crops in that locality.

Do not use Lime sulfur on apricots. Do not use Oil with Lime sulfur in summer applications. Do not apply when temperature exceeds 85 F. Do not apply Oil following Lime Sulfur, nor Lime Sulfur following Oil, in foliage period, wait 30 days between treatments with oil spray.

Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

AGRICULTURAL USE

For ground boom applications, apply with nozzle height no more than 4 feet above the ground or crop canopy and when wind speed is 10 mph or less at the application site as measured by an anemometer. Use medium or coarser spray according to American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) 572 definition for standard nozzles or Volume Median Diameter (VMD) for spinning atomizer nozzles.

For orchard/vineyard airblast applications, do not direct spray above trees/vines and turn off outward pointing nozzles at row ends and outer rows. Apply only when wind speed is 3-10 mph as measured by an anemometer. Use medium or coarser spray according to American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) 572 definition for stand nozzles of Volume Median Diameter (VMD) for spinning atomizer nozzles. If application includes a no-spray zone, do not release spray at a height greater than 10 feet above the ground or crop canopy. The applicator also must use all other measures necessary to control drift.

AGRICULTURAL USE DIRECTIONS

Where a rate range is given, use the highest rates when disease is severe or where disease was severe in the previous season.
