Soluble concentrate insecticide for control of listed insect pests of labeled crops.
STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE.
DECONTAMINATION AND DISPOSAL
For information on disposal of unused, unwanted product, contact the manufacturer or the provincial regulatory agency. Contact the manufacturer and the provincial regulatory agency in case of a spill, and for clean up of spills.
ACTARA 240SC Insecticide controls listed sucking and chewing insects through contact and ingestion.
For crops labeled for foliar applications, ACTARA 240SC Insecticide should be applied when insect pest populations begin to build, but before pest populations reach economically damaging levels. Economic thresholds for pests controlled by ACTARA 240SC Insecticide may be available from your local agricultural authorities.
ACTARA 240SC Insecticide is taken up into foliage after application. However, thorough spray coverage is essential for best performance. Apply ACTARA 240SC Insecticide in sufficient water to ensure good coverage. See specific application information in the Use Directions section of this label. The use of higher water volumes will generally result in better coverage, especially under adverse conditions (e.g. hot, dry weather) or where a dense plant canopy exists.
ACTARA 240SC Insecticide is rainfast once the spray solution has dried on treated plants.
ACTARA 240SC Insecticide can be applied as an in-furrow spray during planting, which allows the insecticide to be absorbed by plant roots. Although ACTARA 240SC Insecticide is rapidly taken up by plant roots and rapidly moves throughout the plant, the use of sufficient water volume will ensure optimal uptake and performance.
DO NOT apply any subsequent application of a Group 4 Insecticide (for example, in-furrow, soil or foliar application) following treatment with a soil application of ACTARA 240SC Insecticide.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
As this product is not registered for the control of pests in aquatic systems, DO NOT use to control aquatic pests.
DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
Apply ACTARA 240SC Insecticide using sufficient water volume to provide thorough and uniform coverage. For ground applications, use a minimum of 100 L/ha unless otherwise indicated on this label. In situations where a dense canopy exists and/or pest pressure is high, use greater water volumes. Avoid making applications under conditions where uniform coverage cannot be obtained or where excessive spray drift may occur. Avoid spray overlap.
1) When using water volumes of 100 L/ha, fine-sized droplets may be used to improve spray coverage.
2) Select nozzles that can produce the desired droplet sizes at the normal rated pressure range.
3) When spraying fine-sized droplets, carefully check all nozzles for flow and calibrate the sprayer.
4) The sprayer should travel at a uniform speed across the field.
5) Monitor environmental conditions and follow Recommendations to Avoid Spray Drift carefully.
Field sprayer application: DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) fine classification. Boom height must be 60 cm or less above the crop or ground.
Aerial application: DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 16 km/h at flying height at the site of application. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) fine classification. To reduce drift caused by turbulent wingtip vortices, the nozzle distribution along the spray boom length MUST NOT exceed 65% of the wing- or rotorspan.
1. Add 1/2 of the required amount of water to the mix tank.
2. With the agitator running, add the ACTARA 240SC Insecticide to the tank.
3. Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water.
4. Begin application of the solution after the ACTARA 240SC Insecticide has completely dispersed into the mix water. Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been applied.
Prepare no more spray mixture than is needed for the immediate operation. Thoroughly clean spray equipment before using this product. Vigorous agitation is necessary for proper dispersal of the product. Maintain maximum agitation throughout the spraying operation. Do not let the spray mixture stand overnight in the spray tank. Flush the spray equipment thoroughly following each use and apply the rinsate to a previously treated area. Keep product container tightly closed when not in use.
Treated areas may be replanted immediately following harvest or as soon as practical following the last application with any crop listed on this label or to sorghum, wheat, barley, canola and pome fruit. Any cover crop planted for erosion control or soil improvement may be planted as soon as practical following the last application. However, the cover crop may not be grazed or harvested for food or feed. For all other crops, a 120 day plant-back interval must be observed.
