DIRECTIONS FOR USE/GENERAL USE PRECAUTIONS
To ensure the safety and effectiveness of this application, the following directions must be followed:
Chemigation:
For control of Blackheaded fireworm, IMIDAN 70-WP INSTAPAK may be applied through an irrigation system. Cranberry growers in British Columbia are advised to obtain and follow the “Chemigation Guidelines for British Columbia” available from the Provincial Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Abbottsford).
To ensure the safety and effectiveness of this application, the following directions must be followed.
1. This recommendation has been developed for use with an in-ground, set sprinkler, overhead irrigation system equipped with venturi injectors. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system.
2. To prevent water source contamination from back flow, the irrigation pump and the injection pump must have an interlocking electrical system.
3. For a safe and effective treatment, sprinkler heads must be staggered and located to result in a uniform and consistent application at a known flow rate.
4. Do not apply when wind speed causes non-uniform distribution and/or favours drift beyond the area intended by treatment.
5. Do not apply by chemigation if the area to be treated is within 100 metres of a residential area or park.
The treated area must be posted as follows: WARNING – Area treated through the irrigation system with Phosmet (IMIDAN 70-WP INSTAPAK) on (indicate date of application). Workers who must enter treated fields within 2 days of application should wear protective clothing.
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.
DO NOT apply by air.

When using a tank mixture, consult the labels of the tank-mix partners and use the largest (most restrictive) buffer zone recommended for any of the products.
IMIDAN 70-WP INSTAPAK is packaged in water-soluble sachets that are to be dropped into the spray tank unopened.
Do not use in low-volume, gear-type spray equipment.
Observe use limitation given on the label for specific crops. Regulations of Health and Welfare Canada have established the amounts of agricultural chemicals that are permitted to remain on food crops at time of harvest. To avoid exceeding these residue tolerances, use only the recommended amounts and do not spray nearer to harvest than the number of days indicated for each crop, or not later than the stage indicated. Consult local agricultural authorities for additional information as the timing and number of applications needed will vary with local conditions.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR IMIDAN 70-WP INSTAPAK
Half fill the spray tank with water (see WARNING above). With agitator operating, add the desired number of 0.453 kg water-soluble sachets. When determining the number of 0.453 kg sachets required to treat a given area, do not exceed the maximum label rate. If there is a screen in the fill opening, place water-soluble sachets on the screen and direct water flow onto them. Do not cut open the water-soluble sachets. Add balance of water to fill tank. Keep agitator running during filling, mixing and spraying operations. Do not allow the mix to stand. Do not add emulsifiable liquids to the mixture unless previous use of the materials being combined has proved them compatible. Reseal the protective, outer container tightly, to preserve remaining water-soluble sachets.
