Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
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.
Some insects are known to develop resistance to insecticides after repeated use. As with any insecticide, the use of the product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area.
Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC contains a Group 4A insecticide. Insect biotypes with acquired or inherent resistance to Group 4A insecticides may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 4A insecticides are used repeatedly as the predominant method of control for targeted species.
The active ingredient in Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC is a member of the neonicotinoid chemical class. Insect pests resistant to other chemical classes have not shown cross-resistance to Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC. In order to maintain susceptibility to this class of chemistry in insect species with high resistance development potential, it is recommended that for each crop season:
1) only a single soil application of Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC be made; 2) foliar applications of products from this same class not be made following a long residual soil application of Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC, or other neonicotinoid products.
Direct applications of Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC into the seed or root-zone of crop. Failure to place Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC into root-zone may result in loss of control or delay in onset of activity. Field applications of Willowood 2SC are to be applied only with ground (in-furrow, band, or drench methods) and chemigation into the root zone. Do not apply with aerial application equipment. Broadcast, foliar applications are only for seedling flats or trays, or where product is intended to be washed from foliage to soil prior to drying on foliage within the planthouse/greenhouse.
Optimum activity of Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC results from applications to the root-zone of plants to be protected. The earlier Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC is available to a developing plant, the earlier the protection begins. Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC is continuously taken into the roots over a long period of time and the systemic nature of Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC allows movement from roots through the xylem tissue to all vegetative parts of the plant. This results in extended residual activity of Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC, the control of insects and the prevention and/or reduction of virus transmission or symptom expression, and plant health benefits. The rate of
Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC applied affects the length of the plant protection period. Use the higher rate within the specified rate range when infestations occur later in crop development or where pest pressure is continuous. Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC 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. Additional specific Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC application instructions are provided in the crop-specific sections of this label. Suppression or less than complete control of certain diseases and insect pests including reduced feeding may also result from Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC applications. Complete control of these pests/diseases may require supplemental control measures.
Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC use on crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting is not permitted but may be allowed under State specific 24(c) labeling. As with any insecticide, care should be taken to minimize exposure of Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC to honey bees and other beneficial pollinators. Additional information on Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC uses for these crops and other questions may be obtained from the Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs, consultants or local Willowood USA representatives.
Make applications only to plants grown in field-type soils, potting media, or mixtures thereof. Do not apply to plants grown in non-soil medias such as perlite, vermiculite, rock wool or other soil-less media, or plants growing hydroponically.
Premix Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC with water or other appropriate diluent prior to application.
Keep Willowood Imidacloprid 2SC and water suspension agitated to avoid settling.
Do not apply more than 0.50 Ibs. active ingredient per acre, per crop season, regardless of formulation or method of application, unless specified within a crop-specific Application Instruction section for a given crop.
