Perfekthion SRegistration date unavailable
BASF - Insecticide

Direction for Use
In the following table, the rates stated are for high volume spraying to run-off. For concentrate spraying, adjust dilution rate accordingly.

Apply at first sign of attack and repeat as necessary depending upon climatic conditions and rate of reinvasion. Re-treatment is normally not required more frequently than 14 days. Avoid treatment on hot dry days when plants are wilted. Under these conditions treat early morning or evening. Delay spraying if rain is imminent. Where a rate range is recommended, use the highest rate to control severe attack. Where mite populations are resistant to organophosphate insecticides, use an alternate product.

Wetting Agents
The addition of a suitable non-ionic surfactant is recommended on hard to wet crops.
