ZORO is an emulsifiable concentrate that will control certain pests on the crops listed on this label when the product is applied according to the Directions for Use. Thorough coverage of foliage is essential for good mite and insect control.
Phytotoxicity: ZORO has been tested for phytotoxicity and has a wide margin of safety on a variety of crops. ZORO has also been shown to be compatible with many commonly used pesticides, crop oils, and nutritional sprays. However, since it is not possible to test a large number of possible mixtures, the user should pre-test any proposed mixtures with ZORO to ensure the physical compatibility and lack of phytotoxic effects.
New York State Restriction: Do not apply ZORO with aircraft in New York State.

Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
Spray Drift Precautions with Aircraft or Ground Application Equipment
• Apply Zoro only when wind velocity favors on target deposition (approximately 3 to 10 mph).
• Do not apply with ground application equipment within 25 ft., or with aircraft within 150 ft. of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes, potholes, natural ponds, estuaries, or commercial fish farm ponds.
• Do not cultivate within 25 ft. of the aquatic area to allow growth of a vegtative filter strip.
• Do not allow this product to drift onto non-target areas. Drift might result in illegal residues or harm nontarget species. Risk of exposure to sensitive areas can be reduced by product application made when wind direction is away from sensitive areas.
• Do not apply ZORO when weather conditions may cause drift.
• Avoid application when the temperature is high and/or the humidity is low. These conditions increase the evaporation of spray droplets and the likelihood of drift to aquatic areas.
• Do not apply when wind speed or wind gusts are greater than 15 mph.
• Do not apply when wind speed is below 2 mph because wind direction will vary and there is a high potential for inversion. Ground application to tree crops or hops in the vicinity of aquatic areas such as lakes, reservoirs, permanent streams, marshes, potholes, natural ponds, estuaries, or commercial fish ponds:
• Do not apply ZORO when weather conditions may cause drift in aquatic areas.
• Do not apply within 110 ft. upwind of aquatic areas or when wind speed is above 8mph.
• Spray last 3 rows windward of aquatic areas using nozzles on one side only, with spray directed away from the aquatic areas.
• Avoid spray going over tops of trees by adjusting or turning off top nozzles. Shut off nozzles when turning at rowends and when passing gaps in rows of trees or hops.

Spray Drift Precautions for Aerial Application

Drift Management Requirements
The following drift management requirements must be followed to avoid off-target movement from aerial applications to agricultural field crops.

Outermost Nozzle Distance
The distance of the outermost nozzles on the boom must not exceed ¾ the length od the wingspan or rotor.

Nozzle Direction
Nozzles must always point backward parallel with the air stream and never be pointed downwards more than 45 degrees.

Maximum Wind Speed
Do not apply when wind speed is greater than 15 mph.

Droplet Size
The most effective way to reduce drift potential is to apply large droplets. The best drift management strategy is to apply the largest droplets that provide sufficient coverage and control. Applying larger droplets reduces drift potential but will not prevent drift if applications are made improperly, or under unfavorable environmental conditions (see Wind, Temerature, Humidity and Temperature Inversions.)

Controlling Droplet Size
• Volume
• Use high flow rate nozzles to apply the highest pratical spray volume. Nozzles with higher rated flows produce larger droplets.
• Pressure
• Do not exceed the nozzle manufacturer’s recommended pressures. For many nozzle types, narrower spray angles produce larger droplets. Consider using low-drift nozzles. Solid stream nozzles oriented straight back produce the largest droplets and the lowest drift.
• Number of Nozzles
• Use the minimum number of nozzles that provide uniform coverage.
• Nozzle Orientation
• Orienting nozzles so that the spray is released parallel to the air stream produces larger droplets than other orientations and is the recommended practice. Significant deflection from horizontal will reduce droplet size and increase drift potential.
• Nozzle Type
• Use a nozzle type that is designed for the intended application. With most mozzle types, narrower spray angles produce larger droplets. Consider using low-drift nozzles. Solid-stream nozzles oriented straight back produce the largest droplets and the lowest drift.
• Boom Length
• For some use patterns, reducing the effective boom length to less than ¾ of the wingspan or rotor length may further reduce drift without reducing swatch width.
• Application Height
• Application should not be made at a height greater than 10 ft. above the top of the target plants unless a greater height is required for aircraft safety. Making applications at the lowest heigh that is safe reduces exposure fo droplets to evaporation and wind.
• Swath Adjustment
• When applications are made with a cross wind, the swath will be displaced downwind. Therefore, on the up and down edges of the field, the applicator must compensate for this displacement by adjusting the path of the aircraft upwind.
• Wind
• Drift potential is lowest between speeds of 2-10 mph. However, many factors, including droplet size and equipment type determine drift potential at any given speed. Application must be avoided below 2 mph due to variable wind direction and high inversion potential.
Note: Local terrain can influence wind patterns. Every applicator should be familiar with local wind patterns and how they affect spray drift.

Temperature and Humidity
To compensate for evaporation when applying Zoro in low relative humidity, set up equipment to produce larger droplets. Evaporation of droplets is most severe when conditions are both hot and dry.

Temperature Inversions
Zoro must not be applied during a temperature inversion because the potential for drift is high. Temperature inversions restrict vertical air mixing, and this causes small, suspended droplets to remain in a concetrated cloud. This cloud can move in unpredicatable directions due to the light variable winds that are common during inversions. Temperature inversions are characterized by termperatures that increase with altitude and are common on nights with limited cloud cover and light to no wind. Inversions begin to form as the sun sets and often continue into the morning. Their presence can be indicated by ground fog, however, if fog is not present, the movement of smoke from a ground source or an aircraft smoke generator can also identify inversions. Smoke that layers and moves laterally in a concentrated cloud (under lowwind conditions) indicates an inversion, while smoke that moves upward and rapidly dissipates, indicates good vertical air mixing.

Resistance Management
ZORO is a Group 6 insecticide (contains the active ingredient abamectin). Because of the inherent risks of pests developing resistance to any product, it is strongly advised that ZORO be used in a sound resistance management program. Treatment may not be effective against labeled pests if insect or mite-tolerant strains develop. When applying ZORO to plants that are hosts of labeled pests with multiple generations per crop per year, use resistance management practices.

Resistance management practices may include, but are not limited to:
• rotating ZORO with other products with different modes of action,
• avoiding treatment of successive generations with ZORO.
• using labeled rates at the specified spray intervals,
• using non-chemical alternatives such as beneficial arthropods,
• rotating susceptible to non-susceptible plants, and
• using various cultural practices
For additional information regarding the implementation of these or other resistance management practices, consult your local agricultural advisor or company representative.
