Foray 76 B
DIRECTION 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 State or Tribal agency responsible for pesticide regulation.
Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
Refer to the Directions for Use Booklet attached to this container for further directions.
Apply Foray 76B by ground or aerial equipment undiluted or with quantities of water sufficient to provide thorough coverage of plant parts to be protected. The amount of water needed per acre will depend upon crop size, weather, spray equipment, and local experience.
Avoiding spray drift at the application site is the responsibility of the applicator. The interaction of many equipment-and-weather-related factors determine the potential for spray drift. The applicator and the grower/treatment coordinator are responsible for considering all of these factors when making decisions.
Shake or stir Foray 76B before use. Fill spray or mixing tank half full of water. Begin agitation and pour Foray 76B into water while maintaining continuous agitation. Add other spray material (if any) and balance of water. Agitate as necessary to maintain suspension. Do not allow diluted mixture to remain in the tank for more than 72 hours.
To improve weather-fastness of the spray deposits for hard to wet crops, such as cole crops, use a spreader-sticker approved for use on growing crops. Combinations with commonly used spray tank adjuvants are generally not deleterious to Foray 76B, if the mix is used promptly. Before mixing in the spray tank, identify possible problems with physical compatibility by mixing all components in a small container in proportionate quantities.
GENERAL AGRICULTURAL USE INSTRUCTIONS
Foray 76B is a biological insecticide for the control of lepidopterous larvae. It contains the spores and endotoxin crystals of Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki. Foray 76B must be ingested by the larvae to be effective. For consistent control, apply at first sign of newly hatched larvae (1st and 2nd instar larvae). Susceptible larvae that ingest Foray 76B cease feeding within a few hours and die within 2-5 days.
Foray 76B may be applied up to and on the day of harvest.
For maximum effectiveness, follow the instructions listed below:
Monitor fields to detect early infestations.
Apply Foray 76B when eggs start hatching and larvae are small (early instars) and before significant crop damage occurs. Larvae must be actively feeding to be affected. Repeat applications every 3 to 14 days to maintain control and protect new plant growth. Factors affecting spray interval include rate of plant growth, weather conditions, and reinfestations. Monitor populations of pests and beneficials to determine proper timing of applications. Under conditions of heavy pest pressures or when large worms are present, use the higher rate, shorten the application interval, and/or improve spray coverage to enhance control. When these conditions are present, consider use of a contact insecticide to enhance control. Thorough coverage is essential for optimum performance. Ground applicators equipped with directed drop nozzles can improve coverage.
