DIRECTIONS FOR USE
RESTRICTED USE PESTICIDE
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. Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
Some pests are known to develop resistance to insecticides that have been used repeatedly. While the development of insect resistance is well understood, it is not easily predicted. Therefore insecticides should be used in conjunction with the resistance management strategies in the area. Consult the local or State agricultural advisors for details. If insect resistance should develop in the area, this product used alone may not continue to provide sufficient levels of pest control. If the reduced levels of control can not be attributed to improper application techniques, improper use rates, improper application timing, unfavorable weather conditions or abnormally high pest pressure, a resistant strain may have developed. To reduce the potential for pesticide resistance, use this product in a rotation program with other classes of chemistry and modes of action. Always apply this product at the recommended rates and in accordance with the use directions. Do not use less than recommended label rates alone or in tank mixtures. Do not use reduced rates of the tank mix partner. For optimum performance, scout fields carefully and begin applications when pests are smaller rather than larger. If resistance is suspected, contact the local or State agricultural advisors.
Application and Mixing Instructions
RUCKUS LFR is an insecticide/miticide that contains 1.5 pounds of bifenthrin per gallon. RUCKUS LFR can be mixed directly with liquid fertilizer or with water. The rate of application is variable according to pest pressure, timing of treatments and field scouting. Use lower rates under light to moderate pest infestations, and higher rates under heaver pest pressure. In arid climates, applications rates are generally higher. Fill the tank one-half full with liquid fertilizer or water and begin spray tank agitation. Add the proper amount of RUCKUS LFR, and then add the rest of the fertilizer or water. Maintain agitation until the mixture has been applied. Shake well before using.
Agitate the RUCKUS LFR spray solutions in nurse tanks prior to moving the solution to spray system. Cultivation within 10 feet of a water body is prohibited to allow for the growth of a vegetated filter strip. In New York State this product may not be applied within 100 feet (using ground equipment) to 300 feet (using aerial equipment) of coastal marshes or streams that drain into coastal marshes. RUCKUS LFR can be applied in-furrow with the seed, as a T-band (band over the open furrow), as a broadcast application, as a band over the row, as a pre-emergent (PRE) application, as a post plant incorporated (PPI) application, as a foliar application (includes chemigation), or as a transplant-water drench during setting. Use rates in the individual crop sections for at-plant soil applications are listed as Fluid oz/1000 Linear ft based on 30 inch row spacings. For conversion to application rates applicable to other row spacings see the table below. The maximum application rate per acre per season (pounds active ingredient /acre/season) as listed under the use directions for each crop must not be exceeded. This seasonal maximum includes at-plant plus foliar applications of RUCKUS LFR and other products containing bifenthrin.
For at-plant applications, RUCKUS LFR can be mixed with commonly used liquid starter or pop-up fertilizers. Follow liquid fertilizer recommendations regarding seed safety and use guidelines. Conduct a preliminary jar test using the appropriate ratio of fertilizer and RUCKUS LFR. Do not allow a tank mixture to set overnight, but if this occurs agitate tank mixture prior to application.
