Omni Brand Imidacloprid 4F
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
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: The application is made to the target site after sunset
The application is made to the target site when temperatures are below 55˚F
The application is made in accordance with a government-initiated public health response
The application is made in accordance with an active state-administered apiary registry program where beekeepers are notified no less than 48- hours prior to the time of planned application so that the bees can be removed, covered or otherwise protected prior to spraying.
The application is made due to an imminent threat of significant crop loss, and a documented determination consistent with an IPM plan or predetermined economic threshold is met. Every effort should be made to notify beekeepers no less than 48-hours prior to the time of the planned application so that the bees can be removed, covered or otherwise protected prior to spraying.
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.
For soil applications of IMIDACLOPRID 4F, direct the product into the seed or root zone of crop. Failure to place IMIDACLOPRID 4F into root zone may result in loss of control or delay in onset of activity. Apply IMIDACLOPRID 4F with ground or chemigation application equipment.
Do not apply IMIDACLOPRID 4F in enclosed structures such as planthouses or greenhouses, except as specifically instructed in the TOBACCO, CUCURBIT VEGETABLES, FRUITING VEGETABLES and GREENHOUSE VEGETABLES (Mature plants in production greenhouses), Cucumber, Tomato only sections of this label.
Apply foliar applications of IMIDACLOPRID 4F as a directed or a broadcast foliar spray. Thorough coverage of foliage is necessary, without runoff, for optimum insecticidal efficacy. Use adequate spray volumes, properly calibrated application equipment, and spray adjuvant, if necessary to obtain thorough coverage. Failure to provide adequate coverage and retention of IMIDACLOPRID 4F on leaves and fruit may result in loss of insect control or delay in onset of activity. Apply IMIDACLOPRID 4F with properly calibrated ground or aerial application equipment. Minimum spray volumes, unless otherwise specified on crop specific sections are 10 gallons per acre by ground and 5 gallons per acre by air. IMIDACLOPRID 4Fmay also be applied by overhead chemigation (see additional information in CHEMIGATION section of this label below) if allowed in crop specific application section.
When applied as a soil application, optimum activity of IMIDACLOPRID 4F results from applications to the root zone of plants to be continuously taken into the roots over a long period of time and the systemic nature of IMIDACLOPRID 4F allows movement from roots through the xylem tissue to all vegetative parts of the plants. This results in extended residual activity of IMIDACLOPRID 4F, the control of insects, and the prevention and/or reduction of virus transmission or symptom expression, and plant health benefits. The rate of IMIDACLOPRID 4F applied affects the length of the plant protection period. Use the higher rate within the labeled rate range when infestations occur later in crop development or where pest pressure is continuous. IMIDACLOPRID 4F will generally not control insects infesting flowers, blooms, or fruit. Additional crop protection may be required for insects feeding in or on these plant parts, and for insects not listed in the crop specific pests controlled sections of this label. Additionally, specific IMIDACLOPRID 4F application instructions are also provided in the crop specific sections of this label. Suppression, or less than complete control of certain insect pests that may carry diseases including reduced feeding, may also result from an IMIDACLOPRID 4F application. Complete control of these pests may require supplemental control measures. IMIDACLOPRID 4F is not used on crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting, but may be allowed under state specific, 24(c) labeling. As with any insecticide, minimize exposure of IMIDACLOPRID 4F to honey bees and other pollinators. Do not use IMIDACLOPRID 4F on crops requiring bee pollination during bloom, and a minimum of 10 days prior to bloom. Additional information on IMIDACLOPRID 4F uses for these crops and other questions may be obtained from the Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs, consultants, or local Helena Chemical representatives.
Apply only to plants grown in field type soils, potting media, or mixtures thereof. Do not apply to plants grown in non-soil media such as perlite, vermiculite, rock wool, or other soil-less media, or plants grown hydroponically. Pre-mix IMIDACLOPRID 4F with water or other appropriate diluents prior to application. Keep IMIDACLOPRID 4F and water suspension agitated to avoid settling. Do not apply more than 0.5 lb. active ingredient per acre per year, regardless of formulation or method of application unless specified within a crop specific application section for a given crop.
To prepare the application mixture, add a portion of the required amount of water to the tank and with agitation, add IMIDACLOPRID 4F. Complete filling the tank with balance of water needed. Maintain sufficient agitation during both mixing and application. IMIDACLOPRID 4F may also be used with other pesticides and/or fertilizer solutions. Please see Compatibility section of this label. When tank mixtures of IMIDACLOPRID 4F and other pesticides are involved, prepare the tank mixture as instructed above and follow suggested in Mixing Order below.
When pesticide mixtures are needed, add wettable powders or wettable granules first. IMIDACLOPRID 4F, and other suspension concentrate (flowable) products second, and emulsifiable concentrates last. Ensure good agitation as each component is added. Do not add an additional component 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.
Test compatibility of the intended mixture before adding IMIDACLOPRID 4F to the spray or mix tank. Add proportionate amounts of each ingredient in the appropriate order to a pint or quart jar, cap, shake for 5 minutes, and let stand for 5 minutes. Do not use if poor mixing or formation of precipitates that do not readily re-disperse occurs, which indicates an incompatible mixture.
