Imidacloprid 2F T & O Insecticide
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. See individual sites for specific pollinator protection application restrictions. If none exist under the specific site, for outdoor foliar applications, follow these application directions
Some insects are known to develop resistance to insecticides after repeated use. As with any insecticide, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area, Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide contains a Group 4A insecticide called imidacloprid. Insect biotypes with acquired or inherent tolerance to group 4A products may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 4A products are used repeatedly as the predominant method of control for targeted species. This may eventually result in partial or total loss of control of those species by Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide and to other Group 4A products.
The active ingredient in Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide is a member of the neonicotinoid chemical group. Avoid using a block of more than three consecutive applications of Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide and/or other Group 4A products having the same or similar mode of action. Following a neonicotinoid block of treatments, Winfield Solutions, LLC strongly encourages the rotation to a block of applications with effective products of a different mode before using additional applications of neonicotinoid products. Using a block rotation or windowed approach, along with other IPM practices, is considered an effective use strategy for preventing or delaying an insect pest's ability to develop resistance to this class of chemistry.
Foliar applications of Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide or other Group 4A products from the neonicotinoid chemical class should not be used on crops previously treated with long-residual, soil-applied products from the neonicotinoid chemical, class.
Other Group 4A, neonicotinoid products used as foliar treatments include: Actara, Assail, Calypso, Centric, Intruder, Leverage and Trimax. Other 4A Group, neonicotinoid products used as soil treatment include: Admire and Platinum.
Thorough uniform coverage is necessary to achieve optimal control. A spray adjuvant may be used to improve coverage. Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide may not knockdown established and heavy insect populations. Two applications may be required to achieve control; retreat if needed and as directed on this label. Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide may be tank mixed with other insecticides as recommended for knockdown of pests or for improved control of other pests.
To prepare the application mixture, add a portion of the required amount of water to the spray tank, begin agitation, and add the Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide. Complete filling tank with the balance of water needed. Be sure to maintain agitation during both mixing and application.
Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide may also be used with other pesticides and/or fertilizer solutions; refer to the
Compatibility Information below. When tank mixtures of Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide and other pesticides are involved, prepare the tank mixture as recommended above and follow the suggested Mixing Order below.
When pesticide mixtures are needed, add wettable powders first, Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide or other flowables second, and emulsifiable concentrates last. Ensure good agitation as each component is added and do not add an additional component until the previous is thoroughly mixed. A fertilizer / pesticide compatibility agent may be needed if a fertilizer solution is to be added to the mixture. Be sure to maintain constant agitation during both mixing and application to ensure uniformity of spray mixture.
Before adding Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide to the spray or mix tank, the compatibility of the intended tank mixture should be checked using the following test:
1) Add proportionate amount of each ingredient in the appropriate order to a pint or a quart jar;
2) Cap and shake for 5 minutes;
3) Let set for 5 minutes.
Poor mixing or formation of precipitates that do not readily re-disperse indicates an incompatible mixture that should not be used. For further information, contact your local Winfield Solutions, LLC representative.
Apply Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide as a directed or broadcast foliar spray using properly calibrated ground application equipment as allowed in the specific recommended application section. For optimum insecticidal efficacy, thorough coverage of all target foliage without runoff is necessary. To obtain thorough coverage use adequate spray volumes, properly calibrated application equipment and a spray adjuvant if necessary. Failure to provide adequate coverage and retention of Imidacloprid 2F T&O Insecticide on leaves and fruit, if present, may result in loss of insect control or delay in onset of activity.
