Notify workers of the application by warning them orally and by posting warning signs at entrances to treated areas.

Application Directions
Broadcast Foliar Application Apply with conventional power-operated spray equipment using nozzles and spray pressures specified for insecticides. Apply Cobalt Advanced in a spray volume of not less than 2 gallons per acre (gpa) for aerial application equipment (fixed wing or helicopter) or not less than 10 gpa for ground equipment, unless otherwise specified. Increase spray volume to ensure adequate coverage with increased density and height of crop canopy. 
Ground Application: Orient the boom and nozzles so that uniform coverage is obtained. The swath width should not be wider than the boom. Follow nozzle manufacturer’s specifications for insecticide nozzles with respect to nozzle type, pressure, and spacing.
Broadcast Soil Application
Apply with conventional power-operated spray equipment that will apply the product uniformly to the soil surface. Use nozzles that produce medium or coarse droplets. Unless otherwise indicated, apply in a spray volume of 10 gpa or more. For band application, use proportionally less spray volume.
Aerial Application
Use a minimum spray volume of 2 gpa. Mark swaths by mechanical flagging, permanent markers or GPS equipment.
Chemigation Application
Apply Cobalt Advanced through properly equipped chemigation systems for insect control in alfalfa, corn (field and sweet), cotton, sorghum, soybean, and wheat, or other crops as specified in Dow AgroSciences supplemental labeling. Do not apply this product by chemigation unless specified in crop-specific directions in this label or Dow AgroSciences supplemental labeling. Do not apply to labeled crops through any other type of irrigation system.
Note: Unless otherwise indicated in specific use directions, the application rates for chemigation are the same as those for broadcast application.

Directions for Sprinkler Chemigation: Apply this product only through overhead sprinkler irrigation systems that will apply water uniformly, including center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side (wheel) roll, traveler, big gun, solid set, micro sprinkler, or hand move. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. Do not apply through sprinkler systems that deliver a low coefficient of uniformity such as certain water drive units.

For continuously moving systems, the mixture containing Cobalt Advanced must be injected continuously and uniformly into the irrigation water line as the sprinkler is moving. If continuously moving irritation equipment is used, apply in no more than 0.25 inch of water. For irrigation systems that do not move during operation, apply in no more than 0.25 inch of irrigation immediately before the end of the irrigation cycle.

Chemigation Equipment Preparation: The following use directions must be followed when Cobalt Advanced is applied through sprinkler irrigation systems. Thoroughly clean the chemigation system and tank of any fertilizer or chemical residues, and dispose of the residues according to state and federal laws. Flush the injection system with soap or a cleaning agent and water. Determine the amount of Cobalt Advanced needed to cover the desired acreage. Mix according to instructions in the Mixing Directions section and bring mixture to desired volume. Continually agitate the mixture during mixing and application.

Chemigation Equipment Calibration: In order to calibrate the irrigation system and injector to apply the mixture containing Cobalt Advanced, determine the following: 1) Calculate the number of acres irrigated by the system; 2) Calculate the amount of product required and premix; 3) Determine the irrigation rate and determine the number of minutes for the system to cover the intended treatment area; 4) Calculate the total gallons of insecticide mixture needed to cover the desired acreage. Divide the total gallons of insecticide mixture needed by the number of minutes (minus time to flush out) to cover the treatment area. This value equals the gallons per minute output that the injector or eductor must deliver. Convert the gallons per minute to milliliters or ounces per minute if needed. 5) Calibrate the injector pump with the system in operation at the desired irrigation rate. It is suggested that the timed output of the injector pump be checked at least twice before operation, and the system monitored during operation.

Mixing Directions
Cobalt Advanced – Alone
To prepare the spray, add a portion of the required amount of water to the spray tank and with the spray tank agitator operating, add Cobalt Advanced. Complete filling the tank with the balance of water needed. Maintain sufficient agitation during both mixing and application to ensure uniformity of the spray mixture.

Cobalt Advanced – Tank Mix Cobalt Advanced is compatible with insecticides, herbicides, miticides, and fungicides and non-pressure fertilizer solutions commonly used except for alkaline materials, such as Bordeaux mixture and lime. Conduct a small jar compatibility test prior to tank mixing. Prepare tank mixtures in the same manner as directed above for use of Cobalt Advanced alone. When tank mixing Cobalt Advanced with herbicides, add wettable powders first, flowables second, and emulsifiable concentrates last. For best results when a fertilizer solution is involved, use a fertilizer pesticide compatibility agent, such as Unite or Complex. Maintain constant agitation during both mixing and application to ensure uniformity of the spray mixture. Do not allow spray mixtures to stand overnight.

Tank Mix Compatibility Test: Test compatibility of the intended tank mixture before adding Cobalt Advanced to the spray or mix tank. Add proportional amounts of each tank mix ingredient to a clear glass pint or quart jar, cap it, invert the jar several times, and let set 15 minutes. If the mixture balls-up, forms flakes, sludges, jels, oily films or layers, or other precipitates that do not readily redispers, it is an incompatible mixture that must not be used.

Pests: billbugs (1), common stalk borer (9), corn rootworm larvae (7), (8), Japanese beetle adult, lesser cornstalk borer
Rate: 32 - 42 (fl oz/acre)
Pest-Specific Use Directions:
1. Billbug, chinch bug, or flea beetle: For best control, ground apply in a minimum spray volume of 20 to 40 gpa at 40 psi. If corn is less than 6 inches tall, apply in a 9- to 12-inch wide band over the row. For corn more than 6 inches tall, apply using drop nozzles directed to the base of the plant. Do not reduce the application rate for banded or directed applications. Concentrate the full labeled dosage rate in the treated zone. When chinch bugs continue to immigrate to corn over a prolonged period or under extreme pest pressure, a second application may be needed.
2. Corn rootworm adults: The specified dosage will control silk clipping.
3. Cutworms: It is preferable to apply Cobalt Advanced when soil is moist and worms are active on or near the soil surface. If ground is dry, cloddy, or crusted at time of treatment, worms may be protected from the spray and effectiveness will be reduced. Shallow incorporation using a rotary hoe or other suitable equipment immediately before or soon after treatment may improve control. A second application may be required if damage or density levels exceed economic thresholds established for your area.
4. Webworm: For control, shallow incorporation using a rotary hoe or other suitable equipment immediately before or soon after treatment is necessary.
5. European corn borer: For control, use 22 to 38 fl oz per acre when application is made with power-operated ground or aerial equipment or 16 to 38 fl oz per acre when application is made through a sprinkler irrigation system. University research indicates that achieving greater than 50% control of first generation European corn borer with a single liquid insecticide treatment is highly dependent upon timing, insecticide placement, and weather conditions.
6. Southwestern corn borer: A second application may be applied 21 days later if needed due to reinfestation.
7. Corn rootworm larvae For postemergence control, apply at cultivation. Direct the spray to both sides of the row at the base of the plants just ahead of the cultivator shovels. Cover the insecticide with soil around the brace roots. A cultivation application of Cobalt Advanced may be made in addition to an at-planting application of Lorsban® 15G insecticide.
8. Cobalt Advanced may also be applied through sprinkler irrigation systems at the rate of 32 to 42 fl oz per acre to control corn rootworm larvae. Time application to coincide with the appearance of the second instar larvae. Apply with enough water to wet the root zone to the depth control needed. If soils are wet, allow enough soil drying to occur such that an application using a minimum amount of water will not produce surface runoff. See Chemigation Application section.
9. Do not use Cobalt Advanced in combination with a burndown herbicide for control of common stalk borer. For common stalk borer control, treat approximately 11 days after application of glyphosate or after burndown with paraquat herbicide is complete (3 to 5 days).
