General Instructions for ALBAUGH ACARAMIK - Mite Control on Various Crops

  1. Product Overview:

    • ALBAUGH ACARAMIK is for controlling pest mites on pears, apples, tomatoes, citrus, hops, strawberries, and ornamentals.
    • Additionally, it is effective against pest mites and native budworm on cotton.
    • It quickly moves into leaves after application, remaining for several weeks.
    • Good coverage is essential as ALBAUGH ACARAMIK is not synthetic, and unabsorbed Abamectin degrades rapidly.
  2. Crop Monitoring:

    • Regularly monitor crops every 3-5 days during the season for effective control.
  3. Application on Cotton:

    • Air Application:

      • Apply by spray with a reliable crosswind for good canopy penetration.
      • Application is recommended in cooler parts of the day or night.
      • Preferably, use aircraft fitted with Micronair atomizers.
    • Ground Application:

      • Use inter-row droppers with nozzles spraying towards the cotton rows.
      • Nozzles should be level with or just below the canopy, spraying at right angles to the ground.
  4. Mixing Instructions:

    • Measure the required amount of ALBAUGH ACARAMIK, add to the partly filled spray tank, and then add the remainder of the water.
    • If oil is recommended, add it after ALBAUGH ACARAMIK is well mixed.
    • Wetting agent is not required.
  5. Mixing for Apple and Pear Applications:

    • For a mixture of 750ml ALBAUGH ACARAMIK plus 5L summer oil per hectare, follow the provided mixing rates.
    Water (Amount per 100 L) ALBAUGH ACARAMIK Summer Oil
    1,000 L/ha (minimum) 75 ml 500 ml
    1,500 L/ha 50 ml 335 ml
    2,000 L/ha 37.5 ml 250 ml
    2,500 L/ha 30 ml 200 ml
  6. Crop Safety:

    • ALBAUGH ACARAMIK plus Summer Oil may occasionally cause slight russetting on sensitive pear varieties.
    • Some apple fruit blemishing may occur with low water volume applications.
    • Severe fruit russetting may occur on sensitive apple varieties when used within 7 days before or after the fungicide DELAN SC*.
  7. Resistance Warning:

    • ALBAUGH ACARAMIK is a Group 6 insecticide.
    • Resistance management is crucial; repeated use can lead to resistance.
    • The product should not be applied more than the recommended number of times per season/crop.
    • Rotate ALBAUGH ACARAMIK with approved miticides from other chemical groups.
