Thursday, June 23, 2011

Hi folks,

Just to let you know that Delegate WG has been approved for control of blackheaded fireworm and Sparganothis fruitworm and also suppression of cranberry tipworm for the 2011 season. Here is the information pertaining to cranberry but please check out the full label at the PMRA Website.

Delegate WG Insecticide - Cranberry Label Excerpt:
For the control of blackheaded fireworm and Sparganothis fruitworm or the suppression of cranberry tipworm, apply 420 grams of product per hectare. Target eggs at hatch or small larvae. Monitoring is critical for proper timing of application. Repeat applications as determined by further monitoring of pest pressure. Maximum of three applications per year with a minimum re-treatment interval of 7 days and a preharvest interval of 21 days. Apply in a minimum of 500 L water per hectare. To reduce the potential
for resistance development in target species, do not make more than two consecutive applications of Group 5 insecticides (for example, spinetoram and spinosad). If additional treatments are required after
two consecutive applications of a Group 5 insecticide, rotate to another class of registered insecticide for at least one application.
Delegate WG Insecticide may be applied to lowbush cranberry by chemigation. For application by chemigation, read the section below.
Directions for Chemigation DO NOT apply Delegate WG by chemigation to other crops listed on this label. Delegate WG may be applied through a solid set overhead sprinkler irrigation system that will apply water uniformly and
within the confines of a closed perimeter of dykes. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. Sprinkler systems that deliver a low coefficient of uniformity such as certain water drive
units are not recommended. Non-uniform distribution of treated water may reduce effectiveness or result in illegal pesticide residues on the crop.
Proper calibration of the chemigation system is essential to deliver the desired rate per hectare in a uniform manner and to minimize wash-off time. If you have questions about calibration, contact the equipment manufacturer or other expert.
