Best Practices

// Foliar Application Methods 

• Monitor crops and commence applications once local thresholds are reached
• Thorough, uniform coverage of the crop is required for optimum control
• Use the higher rates for higher pest infestation levels
• Minimum water volume is 500 L/ha. Use appropriate spray volume for adequate crop foliage spray coverage. Spray crop to wet not to drip
• Repeat applications may be made if necessary, providing the maximum amount of 2000 mL/ha (400 g ai/ha) per year is not exceeded
• Minimum interval between applications: 7 days for all crops except pepper, which is 10 days
• PHI for greenhouse vegetables: 1 day for cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce; 3 days for peppers

// Drench Application Methods

• Monitor crops and commence applications once local thresholds are reached
• Use the higher rates for higher pest infestation levels
• To assure optimum effectiveness, the product must be placed where the roots of the plant can absorb the active ingredient. Application to soil or soilless media should be made with sufficient water to ensure incorporation into the root zone
• PHI for greenhouse vegetables: 1 day for cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce; 3 days for peppers
• Reapply only when monitoring indicates it is necessary, at a minimum interval of 7 days for tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce and ornamentals and 10 days for peppers
• For drench applications to plants grown in soil or soilless media, follow with moderate irrigation. Irrigate carefully within the next 10 days in order to avoid loss of active ingredient due to leaching
