DIRECTIONS FOR USE
RESTRICTED USE PESTICIDE
It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

PRODUCT DIRECTIONS
For use only in commercial seed treatment equipment. Not for use in hopper box, planter box, slurry box, or other farmer-applied applications.
Read the entire label and observe all label directions and precautions before us. Do not use this product except as directed on this label or on other Bayer CropScience supplemental labeling for this product.

COMPATIBILITY
It is essential that before using AERIS Seed-Applied Insecticide/Nematicide in any tank mixture the compatibility of the mixture be established . Add AERIS Seed-Applied Insecticide/Nematicide at the recommended label rate to a clean quart jar containing approximately one-half the amount of water intended for a final slurry application rate . Next, follow with all other tank mix components that will be used in the total slurry application. Add last the remaining balance of water. The total amount of volume is determined by the seed size and how much is necessary to ensure complete and uniform coverage and distribution on the seed, as well as the type of commercial seed treating application equipment that will be used.
DO NOT USE MIXTURES THAT CURDLE, PRECIPITATE, OR GEL. FOR BEST RESULTS, TANK MIXTURES SHOULD BE USED IMMEDIATELY AFTER MIXING WITH ADEQUATE AGITATION.
NOTE: Thiodicarb is hydrolytically sensitive to degradation of active ingredient by strong acids AND strong bases. DO NOT ADD AERIS SEED-APPLIED INSECTICIDE/NEMATICIDE TO WATER WITH pH VALUES BELOW 3.0 OR ABOVE 8.5. If necessary, water should be buffered within this range before adding AERIS Seed-Applied Insecticide/Nematicide. Degradation can cause reduced effectiveness, plant phytotoxicity and increased handling hazards.

DIRECTIONS FOR SEED TREATMENT
All seed treated with this product must be colored with an EPA-approved dye or colorant that imparts an unnatural color to the seed to help prevent the inadvertent use of treated seed for food, feed, or oil purposes.

Do not exceed a total of 5.4 pounds thiodicarb a.i. per acre per season for seed treatment applications. In Arizona and California, do not exceed a total of 1.8 pounds thiodicarb a.i. per acre per season for seed treatment applications. Do not exceed a total of 0.5 pounds imidacloprid a.i. per acre per season for seed treatment, soil, and foliar applications combined.
