Fyfanon 57 EC
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
Do not permit spray to contact auto vehicles as paint finish could be permanently damaged. If vehicles come into contact with spray, wash immediately. Do not use this product for any uses other that those specified on this label. For proper mixing, fill the spray tank at least ¾ filled with water before Fyfanon 57% EC is added. Mechanical agitation or recirculation through the pump by-pass to the
tank is usually sufficient for maintaining a good dispersion. Rinse empty container with water and drain into spray tank – repeat twice more. Repeat applications may be made as indicated. Consult your State Agricultural Experiment Station for proper timing of applications.
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.
Buffer Zones for Aerial Application
When making a Non-ULV application with aerial application equipment, a minimum buffer zone of 25 feet must be maintained along any water body.
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 ground boom 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.
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
For ground boom 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 crosswind, 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. Spray should be released at the lowest height consistent with pest control and flight safety.
more than 10 feet above the crop canopy should be avoided. Apply only when weather conditions are favorable. Wind and rising air currents may cause undesirable spray drift and reduce insect control. Mist blowers and boom sprayers utilizing a controlled air flow to facilitate particle size and spray deposition may be used at a vehicle speed of 4 to 10 mph. Mist blowers with a pump capable of producing 40 psi and blower speeds of 2600 rpm are satisfactory. Use flat fan nozzles, 8001 to 8002, placed 30º into air blast, or rotary atomizers placed into the air blast that produce an efficient spray particle with a mass median diameter of 30 to 100 microns.
Other similar application equipment
which has demonstrated the capability to deliver even distribution of the labeled rate over the desired area may be used. Boom sprayers with a filtered rotary air compressor, either PTO or gas engine driven or an air pump capable of producing at least 12 psi are satisfactory. Use air pressure on chemical tanks and an accurate metering valve to assure a calibrated flow of the pesticide. Air should be regulated with a relief valve and gauge for proper air and liquid mixture. Pneumatic-type spray nozzles, as suggested by equipment manufacturer, should be used for spray particles with mass median diameter of 30 - 100 microns.
