DIRECTIONS FOR USE

GENERAL INFORMATION
CLUTCH 50 WDG INSECTICIDE is a broad spectrum insecticide for control of a wide spectrum of insect pests infesting potato, pome fruit, grape, strawberries, cucurbit vegetables and stone fruit. When applied as directed, CLUTCH 50 WDG INSECTICIDE provides residual insect control. The specific length of residual control depends on environmental factors, plant growth, dosage rate and degree of insect infestation. As this product is not registered for the control of pests in aquatic systems, DO NOT use to control aquatic pests.

ROTATIONAL CROP RESTRICTIONS
Corn, canola, potato, fruiting vegetables and cucurbit vegetables and sweet potato may be replanted at any time. A one year plantback interval is required for leafy, root and tuber vegetables (except potato and sweet potato). Soybeans may be planted at a 30-day plantback interval.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
DO NOT use a foliar application of CLUTCH 50 WDG INSECTICIDE following a seed piece, in furrow or soil application of a product containing clothianidin or following the application of another insecticide in the neonicotinoid class of chemistry (Group 4 or 4A Insecticide).
If the maximum seasonal limit of CLUTCH 50 WDG INSECTICIDE has been applied and the insect population requires additional treatments, use another registered insecticide that is not in the neonicotinoid class of chemistry (Group 4 or 4A Insecticide).
DO NOT apply by air except where labeled under crop specific directions for use.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Prior to mixing, clean the spray tank by following the sprayer clean-up recommendations on the previously sprayed product label.
2. Fill the spray tank one-half full of water and start agitation.
3. Add the required amount of CLUTCH 50 WDG INSECTICIDE to the tank.
4. Continue agitation while filling tank to the desired spray volume.
5. Maintain agitation during mixing and spraying. DO NOT allow the spray mixture to stand without agitation.
6. After use, thoroughly rinse and clean the spray tank. Flush the spray equipment thoroughly following each use and apply the rinsate to a previously treated area.

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. Airblast application: DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT direct spray above plants to be treated. Turn off outward pointing nozzles at row ends and outer rows. DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 16 km/h at the application site as measured outside of the treatment area on the upwind side. 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.

Buffer zones:
The buffer zones specified in the table below are required between the point of direct application and the closest downwind edge of sensitive terrestrial habitats (such as grasslands, forested areas, shelter belts, woodlots, hedgerows, riparian areas and shrublands), sensitive freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands) and estuarine/marine habitats.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT: 
For resistance management, please note that CLUTCH 50 WDG INSECTICIDE contains a Group 4A insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to CLUTCH 50 WDG INSECTICIDE and other Group 4A insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides is used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed. To delay insecticide resistance: Where possible, rotate the use of CLUTCH 50 WDG INSECTICIDE or other Group 4 or 4A insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in a field. Use tank mixtures with insecticides from a different group when such use is permitted. Insecticide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices. Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development. Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area. For further information and to report suspected resistance, contact Valent Canada, Inc. at 1-800-682-5368 or at www.valent.ca.
