Clean Crop Malathion ULV Concentrate Insecticide
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application.
PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
• All ULV aerial formulations other than those intended for use as a Wide area Mosquito Adulticide, must be packaged in closed mixing and loading systems.
° Buffer Zones for Aerial Application:
- When making a ULV application with aerial application equipment, a minimum buffer zone of 50 feet must be maintained along any water body.
- When making a ULV application with ground-based equipment a minimum buffer zone of 25 feet must be maintained along any water body.
SPRAY DRIFT REQUIREMENTS
Observe the following requirements when spraying in the vicinity of aquatic areas such as, but not limited to, lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes or natural ponds, estuaries and commercial fish ponds.
Droplet Size - Use the largest droplet size consistent with acceptable efficacy. Formation of very small droplets may be minimized by appropriate nozzle selection, by orienting nozzles away from the air stream as much as possible, and by avoiding excessive spray boom pressure. For groundboom and aerial applications, use only medium or coarser spray nozzles according to ASAE (S572) definition for standard nozzles, or a volume mean diameter (VMD) of 300 microns or greater for spinning atomizer nozzles. In conditions of low humidity and high temperatures, applicators should use a coarser droplet size.
Wind Direction and Speed - Make aerial or ground applications when the wind velocity favors on target product deposition (approximately 3 to 10 mph). Do not apply when wind velocity exceeds 15 mph. Avoid applications when wind gusts approach 15 mph. For all non-aerial applications, wind speed must be measured adjacent to the application site on the upwind side, immediately prior to application.
Temperature Inversion - Do not make aerial or ground applications into areas of temperature inversions.
Inversions are characterized by stable air and increasing temperatures with increasing distance above the ground. Mist or fog may indicate the presence of an inversion in humid areas. Where permissible by local regulations, the applicator may detect the presence of an inversion by producing smoke and observing a smoke layer near the ground surface.
In conditions of low humidity and high temperatures, applicators should use a coarser droplet size.
Additional Requirements for Ground Applications - Spray should be released at the lowest height consistent with pest control and flight safety. Applications more than 10 feet above the crop canopy should be avoided. For groundboom applications, apply with nozzle height no more than 4 feet above the ground or crop canopy.
For airblast applications, turn off outward pointing nozzles at row ends and when spraying the outer two rows. To minimize spray loss over the top in orchard applications, spray must be directed into the canopy.
Additional Requirements for Aerial Applications - For aerial applications, the spray boom should be mounted on the aircraft as to minimize drift caused by wingtip or rotor vortices. The minimum practical boom length should be used and must not exceed 75% of wing span or 90% rotor diameter.
Aerial applicators must consider flight speed and nozzle orientation in determining droplet size.
When applications are made with a cross-wind, the swath will be displaced downwind. The applicator must compensate for this displacement at the downwind edge of the application area by adjusting the path of the aircraft upwind.
Before beginning treatment, notify all registered apiarists in or near the treatment area of the date and appropriate time of treatment.
IMPORTANT - Undiluted spray droplets of MALATHION ULV will permanently damage automobile paint. If accidental exposure does occur, the vehicle should be washed immediately. Consult your state experiment station or state extension service for proper timing of sprays. This product is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment or residues on crops. Protective information may be obtained from your Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service.
