Agrispon may be used on all food, feed and row crops, consistent
with the use directions and restrictions stated below. Agrispon
may also be used for horticultural applications, as noted below.
Apply Agrispon via boom, fan jet, hand carried, or backpack
spray equipment. This product may be applied through drip and
overhead irrigation systems. Follow all chemigation directions
below. Shake well before using. Agitate solutions either during
or immediately after dilution. Apply solution within eight hours
of mixing. Dilute Agrispon in water as specified in the table
*The table specifies the minimum amount of water
to be used; Agrispon may be diluted in a larger volume of water
if desired. The amount of water used will vary according to
equipment, type of nozzle used, number of nozzles, ground speed’
system pressure, and calibration. If soil is covered with plant
material, mulch, or thatch, use sufficient water to transport
it to the soil during application or lightly irrigate after
application. Rates of application are based on use in North
America. Different climates and soils may require adjustments.
» Short cycle - (growth
cycle of 60 days or less)
Make single application at, or as soon after planting as possible.
Maximum number of applications/area/year: 6
» Mid season Plants
- (growth cycle of 60 to 120 days)
Make first application at planting or within two weeks of
germination with a subsequent
application 45 to 60 days after. Maximum number of applications/area/year:
» Long Season – (growth
cycle longer than 120 days)
Make an initial application at planting or within two weeks
of germination. Make subsequent applications at 45 to 60 day
intervals during the period when plant is growing vigorously.
Maximum # of applications/area/year: 8
Apply to the soil surface extending out 3 to 4 times the distance
of the trunk to drip line to insure root coverage.
» Evergreen: For newly planted
perennials, initial application should be made at, or as soon
after planting as possible. For established perennials, initial
application should be made when soil temperature warms to
50°F. For climates where soil temperatures are >50°F
year round, initial application may be made at any time. Application
should be repeated every 60 days as weather permits. Maximum
number of applications/area/year: 6.
» Deciduous: Make first application
at bud break or leaf flush in the spring. Make subsequent
application every 60 days until dormancy occurs. Maximum number
of applications/area/year: 6.
Apply every 6 to 8 weeks during active growth. Number of applications
will depend on the growth cycle length as explained above.
Apply this product only through drip (trickle) or sprinkler,
including center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side (wheel)
roll, traveler, big gun, solid set, or hand move irrigation
systems. Do not apply this product through any other type
of irrigation system.
Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues
in the crop can result from nonuniform distribution of treated
water. If you have questions about calibration, you should
contact State Extension Service Specialists, equipment manufacturers
or other experts. Do not connect an irrigation system (including
greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public
water system unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety
devices for public water systems are in place. A person knowledgeable
of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation
or under the supervision of the responsible person, shall
shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should
the need arise.
The following instructions apply to all chemigation methods
discussed on this labeling.
Determine the number of acres to be treated by the chemigation
system. Prepare a premix by adding the recommended volume
of AGRISPON from the table above and a minimum of one gallon
of water for each acre to be treated into a reservoir container.
The use of larger quantities of water to dilute the premix
may make calibration of the application easier. Meter the
premix into the chemigation system at a rate that will consume
the entire premix within the period of chemigation or within
8 hours, whichever is less. Maintain agitation in the reservoir
during the period of chemigation to keep material in suspension.
