Imidacloprid 2FL AG
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
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. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.
See individual crops for specific pollinator protection application restrictions. If none exist under the specific crop, for foliar applications, follow these application directions for crops that are contracted to have pollinator services or for food/feed & commercially grown ornamentals that are attractive to pollinators.
SOIL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
For Soil Application, direct applications of IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG into the seed or root-zone of crop.
Lack of correct application of IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG into seed or root-zone could result in lessened or delayed efficacy. IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG may be applied with directed ground or chemigation application. Do not apply with aerial application equipment. Only use broadcast, foliar applications to seedling flats or trays, or where product is intended to be washed from foliage to soil prior to drying on foliage.
Best results of IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG application are achieved when applications are made to the rootzone of plants. Earlier application of IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG to developing plant results in earlier protection. IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG is a systemic insecticide and moves from the plant's root system to the upper vegetative parts via the xylem tissue. This movement results in extended activity of IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG, to control insects that can vector detrimental virus transmission. Use the higher specified rate when insecticidal pressure occurs later in the plants development cycle or when insect pressure is heavy and/or continuous. Despite the systemic nature of IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG, it usually does not control insects that infest flowers, blooms or fruit. Insects attacking these parts of a plant
generally require a foliar type insecticide application. More specific IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG application instructions are provided in the crop-specific sections of this label.
Suppression, or less than complete control of certain diseases and insect pests including reduced feeding may also result from an IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG applications. Residual control of these pests/diseases may require supplemental control measures.
IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG use on crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting is not allowed except under State specific 24(c) labeling. Contact your local
Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs, consultants or local Albaugh representative for application on these type crops.
Pre-mix IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG water or other appropriate diluents prior to application. Maintain constant agitation to avoid settling.
SOIL APPLICATION RESTRICTIONS:
• Do not apply more than 0.50 Ibs active ingredient per acre, per year, regardless of formulation or method of application, unless specified within a crop-specific, Applications section fora given crop.
• Do not make soil applications with aerial equipment.
FOLIAR APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
For foliar applications, thorough coverage of foliage without runoff is required for maximum insecticidal efficacy. Use of adequate spray volumes and correctly calibrated application equipment is critical. Use of a spray adjuvant may enhance thorough coverage. Lack of adequate coverage and retention of IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG on foliage and fruit can delay or lessen insect control. IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG may be applied with ground or aerial application equipment that has been properly calibrated. Minimum rate spray volumes (unless otherwise specified on crop sections) are:
• 10 gallons/Acre by ground application equipment.
• 5 gallons/Acre through aerial equipment.
IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG may also be applied by overhead chemigation (see CHEMIGATION DIRECTIONS FOR USE section below) if allowed in crop specific application section. IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG application to crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting may be allowed under State specific 24(c) labeling. Additional information on
IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG uses for these crops and other questions may be obtained from the Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs, consultants or local Albaugh representatives.
FOLIAR APPLICATION RESTRICTIONS:
• DO NOT apply foliar applications of Imidacloprid 2FL AG in Enclosed Structures Such as Greenhouses or Planthouses.
• Do not exceed application of more than 0.5 Ibs. active ingredient per acre, per year, regardless of formulation or method of application, unless specified within a crop specific rate applications section for a given crop.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR SOIL AND FOLIAR APPLICATIONS
1. Add a 50% of the required amount of water to the spray tank
2. Begin agitation
3. Add labeled rate of IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG
4. Add balance of water needed.
Maintain sufficient agitation during both mixing and application. IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG may be tank mixed with other pesticides and/or fertilizer solutions. Refer to Compatibility Note below. When tank mixing IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG with other pesticides, prepare the tank mixture as specified above and follow suggested Mixing Order below.
Mixing Order for Tank Mixes
1. Wettable powders
2. IMIDACLOPRID 2FL AG, or other flowables second,
3. Emulsifiable concentrates
Maintain good agitation as each pesticide is added. Do not add the next product until the previous is thoroughly mixed. If a fertilizer solution is added, a fertilizer pesticide compatibility agent may be needed.Maintain constant agitation during both mixing and application to ensure uniformity of spray mixture.
Unless the applicator has prior knowledge of the compatibility of the intended tank mixture, perform a small scale test by adding proportionate amounts of each ingredient in the appropriate order, to a clear pint or quart sized jar. Cap and shake for 5 minutes, then let set for 5 minutes. Any visual indication of poor mixing or formation of precipitates that cannot be easily re-dispersed indicates incompatibility and the mixture that should not be used.
