For control of mites and whiteflies on field, vegetable and fruit crops

 
GENERAL INFORMATION
Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide is for control of listed mites and whiteflies in outdoor field crops, vegetables and fruit.
Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide is a Suspension Concentrate formulation. The active ingredient contained in Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide is active by contact on all mite development stages. However, mite juvenile stages are often more susceptible than adults.
Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide is also effective against whitefly nymphs, plus it has an effect on the pupal stage. Application should be timed to coincide with early threshold levels in developing mite and whitefly populations.
Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide can be applied by air or ground equipment. However, thorough coverage of all plant parts is required for optimum performance. Performance evaluations should be made 4 – 10 days following application.
Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide has translaminar movement throughout the leaf surface, but to assure optimum effectiveness, the product should be applied to wet both the upper and lower surfaces of the leaf canopy.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
For all crops, apply specific dosage of Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide as needed for control. Good coverage of the foliage is necessary for optimal control. An adjuvant may be used to improve coverage and control. For best results the treatment should be made when whitefly or mite populations begin to build and before a damaging population becomes established. Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide is effective against the egg and nymphal stages of whiteflies and mites. Control should be directed at these stages. Oberon Flowable Insecticide-Miticide will not knock down adult whitefly populations. Rate range is provided and is generally dependent on size of the plant and density of the foliage. Apply in adequate water for uniform coverage with ground or aerial application equipment. Repeat applications at listed intervals if monitoring indicates the need.
