It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Read all Directions for Use carefully before applying. 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.
This product cannot be reformulated or repackaged into other end-use products.

Nufos 4E contains a Group 1B insecticide. Insect/mite biotypes with acquired resistance to Group 1B may eventually dominate the insect/mite population if Group 1B
insecticides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of
control of those species by Nufos 4E or other Group 1B insecticides.
To delay development of insecticide resistance, the following practices are recommended: • Avoid consecutive use of insecticides with the same mode of action (same insecticide group) on the same insect species.
• Use tank mixtures or premix products containing insecticides with different modes of action (different insecticide groups) provided the products are registered for the
intended use.
• Base insecticide use on comprehensive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.
• Monitor treated insect populations in the field for loss of effectiveness.
• Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisor for insecticide resistance management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and resistant
pest problems.

Broadcast Foliar Application
Apply with conventional power-operated spray equipment using nozzles and spray pressures recommended for insecticides. Apply Nufos 4E in a spray volume of not
less than 2 gallons per acre for aerial application equipment (fixed wing or helicopter) or not less than 10 gallons per acre for ground equipment, unless otherwise
specified. Increase spray volume to ensure adequate coverage with increased density and height of crop canopy. See Spray Drift Precautions section for
recommendations on droplet size.
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 recommendations 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
(235 – 400 microns). Unless otherwise indicated, a spray volume of 10 gallons or more per acre is recommended. For band application, use proportionally less spray

Aerial Application
Use a minimum spray volume of 2 gallons per acre and follow recommendations for best management practices for aerial application, above.
Marking of swaths by flagging, permanent markers or use of GPS equipment is recommended.
Chemigation (Sprinkler Irrigation)
Nufos 4E may be applied to the following crops through sprinkler irrigation equipment: alfalfa, citrus (orchard floors only), corn (field and sweet), cotton, cranberry, mint,
sorghum, soybeans, sugarbeet, orchard floors (almond, pecan and walnut), and wheat, or other crops as specified in Cheminova supplemental labeling. Do not apply
this product by chemigation unless specified in crop-specific directions in this label or Cheminova 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 specified for broadcast application.

Use Directions For Sprinkler Irrigation
The following use directions are to be followed when Nufos 4E is applied through sprinkler irrigation systems. Thoroughly clean the injection system and tank of any
fertilizer or chemical residues, and dispose of the residues according to State and Federal laws. Flush the injector with soap and water. Determine the amount of
insecticide needed to cover the desired acreage. Mix according to instructions in the Mixing Directions section and bring mixture to desired volume. Do not add crop oil
when Nufos 4E is applied by chemigation. Maintain continuous agitation during mixing and throughout the application period. Set the sprinkler system to deliver the
desired inches of water per acre. Start the water pump and sprinkler, and let the system achieve the desired pressure and speed before starting the injector. Start the
injector and calibrate the injector system according to Calibration instructions in the following Use Precautions section. The mixture containing Nufos 4E must be
injected continuously and uniformly into the irrigation water line as the sprinkler is moving to ensure uniform application at the correct rate. When the application is
finished, flush and clean the entire irrigation and injector system prior to shutting down the system.

Use Precautions For Sprinkler Irrigation
The following use precautions will result in a safe and successful application of mixtures containing Nufos 4E:
1. Apply this product only through the following sprinkler irrigation systems: 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.
2. Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from nonuniform distribution of treated water.
3. If you have questions about calibration, you should contact state extension service specialists, equipment manufacturers or other experts.Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system.
5. A person knowledgeable about the chemigation system and responsible for its operation, or under the supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system
down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.
6. The system must contain a functional check valve, vacuum relief valve, and low pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water source
contamination from back flow. Refer to the American Society of Agricultural Engineer's Engineering Practice 409 for more information.
7. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump.
8. The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and
connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down.
9. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops.
10. The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure switch which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point
where pesticide distribution is adversely affected.
11. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that
are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock. The metering pump must provide a greater pressure than that of the irrigation
system at the point of injection. The pump must meet Section 675 for "Electrically Driven or Controlled Irrigation Machines" NEC 70 and must contain Viton or Teflon
12. To ensure uniform mixing of the insecticide into the water line, inject the mixture through a nozzle placed in the fertilizer injection port or just ahead of an elbow or
tee in the irrigation line so that the turbulence will assist in mixing. It is suggested that the injection point be higher than the insecticide tank to prevent siphoning.
13. The tank holding the insecticide mixture should be large enough to allow the system to complete the application with one filling. It should be free of rust, fertilizer,
sediment, and foreign material, and equipped with an in-line strainer situated between the tank and the injector pump.
14. Calibration: In order to calibrate the irrigation system and injector to apply the mixture of Nufos 4E, determine the following:
a. Calculate the number of acres irrigated by the system.
b. Set the irrigation rate and determine the number of minutes for the system to cover the intended treatment area.
c. 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 to cover the treatment area. This value equals the gallons per minute output that the injector must deliver. Convert the gallons per minute to milliliters or
ounces per minute. 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.
15. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment. End guns must be turned off during the application, if they irrigate non-target
16. Do not allow irrigation water to collect or runoff and pose a hazard to livestock, wells, or adjoining crops.
17. Re-entry: Follow requirements in the Agricultural Use Requirements section or crop-specific sections of this label.
18. Do not apply through sprinkler systems that deliver a low coefficient of uniformity such as certain water drive units.

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 Nufos 4E. 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.
Nufos 4E is compatible with insecticides, miticides and fungicides and non-pressure fertilizer solutions commonly recommended, except for alkaline materials such as
Bordeaux mixture and lime. It is always recommended that a small jar compatibility test be run prior to tank mixing. Prepare tank mixtures in the same manner as
recommended above for use of Nufos 4E alone. When tank mixing Nufos 4E with herbicides, add wettable powders first, flowables second, and emulsifiable concentrates
last. When a fertilizer solution is involved, it is strongly recommended that a fertilizer pesticide compatibility agent such as Unite or Compex be used. 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 Nufos 4E to the spray or mix tank. Add proportional amounts of each tank
mix ingredient to a pint or quart jar, cap, shake, and let set 15 minutes. Formation of precipitates that do not readily redisperse indicates an incompatible mixture that
should not be used.
