DuPont STEWARD EC insecticide, referred to below as DuPont STEWARD EC or STEWARD EC, must be used only in accordance with the directions on this label, in separately issued labeling or exemptions under FIFRA (Supplemental Labels, Special Local Need Registrations, FIFRA Section 18 exemptions), or as otherwise permitted by FIFRA. Always read the entire label, including the Limitation of Warranty and Liability. 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.

STEWARD EC is an emulsifiable concentrate that can be applied as a foliar spray to control many important insects. STEWARD EC is diluted with water for application.

• Do not formulate this product into any other end-use products without written permission of DuPont.
• Do not use in greenhouses.
• This product is only for commercial use.
• Not for use on ornamental plants or plants being grown for ornamental purposes.
• Not for residential use.
CHEMIGATION: Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system except for application to alfalfa, cotton, peanut and soybean and as allowed by Federal Supplemental, Special Local need (SLN) or other supplemental labeling. (See "Application by Chemigation" section of this label.) Always shake well before use.

Apply at the listed rates when insect populations reach locally determined economic thresholds. Consult the cooperative
extension service, professional consultants or other qualified authorities to determine appropriate threshold levels for treatment
in your area.
STEWARD EC applications should target eggs and small instar larvae.
Follow-up treatments of DuPont STEWARD EC should be applied, as needed, to keep pest populations within threshold
limits. Apply STEWARD EC at 5 to 7 day intervals, as specified in the specific crop sections, to maintain control.
Use sufficient water to obtain thorough, uniform coverage.
Because STEWARD EC is most effective through ingestion of treated plant material, thorough spray coverage is essential for optimum control of targeted pest insects. Using increased water volumes will typically result in better spray coverage, especially under adverse conditions such as dry, hot weather or dense plant foliage. STEWARD EC may be applied by ground, aerial or overhead chemigation application equipment. For aerial application use the following directions unless otherwise specified in specific crop/pest sections of this label or EPA-approved supplemental labeling: use a minimum of 3 gals. water per acre (gpa) [minimum of 5 gals water per acre in Arizona and California]. For ground application use the following directions unless otherwise specified in specific crop/pest sections of this label or EPA-approved supplemental labeling: use a minimum of 5 gals. water per acre. Higher gallonage will provide better coverage and performance. For overhead chemigation applications, see "Application by Chemigation" section of the label for guidance on water volumes to be used. Use of Adjuvants:In some situations where coverage is difficult to achieve such as closed canopy, dense foliage, plants with waxy leaf surfaces or less than optimum application equipment, an adjuvant may improve performance. Use only adjuvant products that are labeled for agricultural use and follow the directions on the manufacturer's label.
