AGRI-MEK 1.9% EC Insecticide/Miticide is an emulsifiable concentrate containing 19 grams of abamectin per litre which when mixed with water according to the Directions for Use will control Tetranychid and Eriophyid mites and Pear Psylla on pears, spider mites and Spotted Tentiform Leafminer on apples, spider mites on caneberries, spider mites, including Two-Spotted Spider Mites, on potatoes, and Two Spotted Spider Mites and McDaniel Spider Mite on strawberries. Apply during the cover spray period using dilute or concentrate ground sprayers calibrated to deliver sufficient water for thorough coverage. Spray volume will vary with size and number of trees per hectare and density of foliage. In any case, thorough coverage is essential for good mite, psylla and leafminer control. When using concentrate sprays, the amount of water is reduced but the amount of AGRI-MEK 1.9% EC Insecticide/Miticide per hectare should remain the same as for dilute sprays. Applications should be made with a minimum of 0.25% paraffinic oil in the dilute spray mixture and not less than 10 L of paraffinic oil per hectare in the final finished spray on crops for which the use of paraffinic oil is specified on this label. Refer to the list below for oils approved for use with AGRI-MEK 1.9% EC Insecticide/Miticide.

Recommended Paraffinic Oil Products: Use only a registered Superior “70" Oil in a tank mix combination with AGRI-MEK 1.9% EC Insecticide/Miticide on pears and apples.
