Nuprid 4F Insecticide
Thorough uniform coverage is necessary to achieve insect control. A spray adjuvant may be used to improve coverage. This product may not knockdown established and heavy insect populations with a single application. Two applications may be required to achieve control; retreat if needed and as directed on this label. This product may be tank mixed with other insecticides as specified for knockdown of pests or for improved control of other pests.
Applying this product to crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting is not permitted unless allowed under state approved 24(c) labeling. Additional information on this product uses for listed crops and other questions may be obtained from the Cooperative Extension Service, PCA’s, consultants or your local Nufarm representative.
Some insects are known to develop resistance to insecticides after repeated use. As with any insecticide, the use of this product must conform to resistance management strategies established for your use area. This product contains a Group 4A insecticide called imidacloprid. Insect biotypes with acquired or inherent tolerance to group 4A insecticides may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 4A insecticides are used repeatedly as the predominant method of control of targeted species. This may eventually result in partial or total loss of control of those species by this product and other Group 4A products.
The active ingredient in this product is a member of neonicotinoid chemical group. Avoid using a block of more than three consecutive applications of this product and/or other Group 4A products having the same or similar mode of action.
Following a neonicotinoid block of treatments, Nufarm strongly encourages the rotation to a block of applications with effective products of a different mode of action before using additional applications of neonicotinoid products. Use of a block rotation or windowed approach, along with other IPM practices, is considered an effective use strategy for preventing or delaying an insect’s pest’s ability to develop resistance to this class of chemistry.
Foliar applications of this product or other Group 4A products from the neonicotinoid chemical class must not be used on crops previously treated with a long-residual, soil-applied product from the neonicotinoid chemical class.
PRODUCT USE INSTRUCTIONS
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS WHEN MIXING AND APPLYING IN THE VICINITY OF AQUATIC AREAS SUCH AS LAKES; RESERVOIRS; RIVERS; PERMANENT STREAMS, MARSHES OR NATURAL PONDS; ESTUARIES AND COMMERCIAL FISH FARM PONDS. SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
The responsibility of avoiding spray drift is with the applicator. The applicator must consider weather related factors and the interaction of application equipment when making application decisions.
Mixing and Loading Requirements
The use of a properly designed and maintained containment pad for mixing and loading of any pesticide into applicationequipment is recommended. If containment pad is not used, maintain a minimum distance of 25 feet between mixing and loading areas and potential surface to groundwater conduits such as field sumps, uncased well head, sinkholes or field drains.
The spray boom should be mounted on the aircraft so as to minimize drift caused by wing tip vortices. The minimum practical boom length should be used, and must not exceed 75% of the wing span or rotor diameter.
Importance of Droplet Size
The droplet size is an important factor and can influence drift. Small droplets (<150 – 200 microns) drift to a greater extent than large droplets. Applications typically should be made to deliver the largest droplet range that provides adequate control and coverage. Formation of very small droplets may be minimized by appropriate nozzle selection.
