Registration number


DO NOT apply this product through any type of irrigation system. DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes. As this pesticide is not registered for control of pests in aquatic systems, DO NOT use to control aquatic pests. DO NOT allow spray mixture to stand in the tank for more than 12 hours. DiPel WP is a biological insecticide and is intended for use against leaf-chewing larvae (caterpillars) of certain Lepidopterous species. Studies to date indicate that, if applied when pests are first noticed and at intervals of one week thereafter, excellent control is achieved. Suspend the required amount of DiPel WP (as determined from the table) in the spray tank; agitate thoroughly. Use recommended amounts in a minimum of 136 to 227 liters of water per hectare for vegetable crops when DiPel WP is applied by ground spray equipment. Fruit crops may require up to 2000 liters per hectare to get adequate coverage. Apply DiPel WP at first sign of infestation and repeat at 7 to 10 day intervals when needed to maintain control. Good coverage of all leaves is essential since the insect must ingest the DiPel WP for insecticidal action. Within a few hours of application, the larvae stop all further eating and death occurs within 1 to 3 days. A spreader sticker such as TRITON*B-1956 should be combined with DiPel WP to aid in thorough coverage of all the foliage. One application will usually be enough to control hornworms on tobacco.

Aerial Application Instructions:
Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment that has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application rates and conditions of this label.
Label rates, conditions and precautions are product specific. Apply only at the rate recommended for aerial application on this label. Where no rate for aerial application appears for the specific use, this product cannot be applied by any type of aerial equipment. Ensure uniform application by using appropriate marking devices and/or electronic guidance equipment.

Use Precautions:
Apply only when meteorological conditions at the treatment site allow for complete and even coverage. Apply only when meteorological conditions are in compliance with local and /or provincial authorities.

Operator Precautions:
DO NOT allow the pilot to mix product to be loaded onto the aircraft. However, loading of premixed product with a closed system is permitted. It is desirable that the pilot has communication capabilities at each treatment site at the time of application. The field crew and the mixer/loaders must wear the personal protective equipment described in the PRECAUTIONS section of this label. When handlers/loaders use closed systems to load product onto the aircraft, the handler requirement for a NIOSH-approved respirator with any N-95, R-95, or P-95 filter for biological products may be waived. When reduced personal protective equipment is worn, the respirator/mask must be immediately available for use in an emergency such as a spill or equipment breakdown. All personnel on the job site must wash hands and face thoroughly before eating and drinking. Protective clothing must be washed before reuse. Decontam inate aircraft cockpit and vehicle cabs if contam ination occurs.

Product Specific Precautions:
Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. If you have questions, call the manufacturer at 1-800-323-9597 or obtain technical advice from the distributor or from your provincial agricultural or forestry representative. Application of this specific product must meet and/or conform to the aerial uses and rates on this label.

For resistance management, please note that DiPel WP contains a Group 11 insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to DiPel WP and other Group 11 insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides are used repeatedly in the same site. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. The following appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed to delay insecticide resistance: . - Where possible, rotate the use of DiPel WP or other Group 11 insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in a site. - Insecticide use should be based on an Integrated Pest Management 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 integrated pest management recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area. - For further information or to report suspected resistance, contact Valent BioSciences Corporation at 1-800-323-9597
