RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT Belay Insecticide contains clothianidin, which is classified in the Group 4A of insecticide classes. Insect biotypes that have developed insensitivity to Group 4A (neonicotinoid) insecticides can eventually dominate the insect population in the same field. That is most likely to happen when Group 4A insecticides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by Belay Insecticide or other Group 4A insecticides.

To delay insecticide resistance consider:

• Avoiding the consecutive use of Belay Insecti-

cide or other Group 4A insecticides that have a

similar target site of action on the same insect

species and/or insect species inadvertently

exposed to the applications (non-target pests).

• Using tank mixtures or premixes with insecticides

from a different class of chemistry, which must be

registered products for the same commodity and

use pattern, with different sites of action can help

to reduce the generation of resistance.

• Do not make foliar applications of neonicotinoid

insecticides (Group 4A) after soil applications of

Belay Insecticide.

• Utilizing a comprehensive Integrated Pest Man-

agement (IPM) program while controlling insect

pests.

(continued)

(continued)
• When possible screen treated insect populations for insensitivity to Group 4A insecticides.
• Contacting your local extension specialist, certified crop advisors and/or manufacturer for insecticide resistance management or IPM recommendations for the specific site and resistant pest problems.
For further information or to report suspected resistance, you may contact Valent U.S.A. LLC at 800-682-5368.
RESTRICTIONS Belay Insecticide is an insecticide for broad spectrum control of insects infesting cotton, cucurbits, fig, grape, leafy vegetables (including brassica vegetables), peach, pome fruit, pomegranate, rice, soybean, tobacco, tree nuts and tuberous and corm vegetables (including potato and sweet potato). When applied as directed, Belay Insecticide provides excellent and long residual control. • Regardless of formulation or type of application
method, do not apply more than a total of 0.2 lb active ingredient clothianidin per acre per year. • If the maximum limit (0.2 lb active ingredient clothianidin per acre per year) has been applied and pest populations require additional treatments, use another registered pesticide that is not in the neonicotinoid class of chemistry. • Do not apply by air except for cotton, potato, rice and soybean.

PLANT TOLERANCE Neither the manufacturer nor the seller has determined whether or not Belay Insecticide can be used safely on all cultivars registered for use. Belay Insecticide has been tested on many cultivars with no phytotoxicity observed at label rates. Since all plant species and their varieties and cultivars have not been tested for tolerance, it is recommended that a small number of plants be sprayed to make certain that no phytotoxicity occurs, prior to any largescale application to plants. The end user assumes all risks arising from application of Belay Insecticide in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Belay Insecticide can be tank mixed. However, all plant species and their varieties and cultivars have not been tested with possible tank mix combinations, sequential pesticide treatments and adjuvants and surfactants. Conduct a spray mix compatibility and phytotoxicity trial under local conditions to ensure compatibility prior to any large-scale use.
It is the pesticide user’s responsibility to ensure that all products in the mixtures are registered for the intended use. Users must follow the most restrictive directions and precautionary language of the products in the mixtures (for example, first aid from one product, spray drift management from another).
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS 1. Begin with clean equipment. 2. Add sufficient clean water to the spray tank for
1/2 of the mix load. 3. Start tank agitation. 4. When using Belay Insecticide alone in the tank:
Add and properly suspend the necessary amount of Belay Insecticide according to established tank mix instructions. Agitate to ensure thorough mixing while adding the remaining required water. A high quality wetting agent or other spray adjuvant, approved for use on your crop, may be added to spray solutions according to the manufacturer’s use instructions. Belay Insecticide must be properly suspended and diluted prior to the addition of any adjuvant. Consult adjuvant label or manufacturer for crop tolerance and safety information when used with this product. 5. When using in combination with other products: Follow the recommended mixing order if Belay Insecticide is going to be part of a tank mix with other registered products. When mixing products in a tank always allow each product to become suspended or reach solution before adding another product to the mix. The following order is suggested when mixing different formulations of registered agricultural products: Wettable powders in soluble packs or bags, soluble or wettable granules, liquid flowables, liquids, emulsifiable concentrates and adjuvants. Agitation and water addition are important during the mixing process. Keep agitation active and adding water throughout the mixing process until all products have been added to the mix. When Belay Insecticide is going to be used in the same tank with a liquid

flowable formulation Belay Insecticide needs to be added before the liquid flowable. 6. Maintain agitation during mixing and application. 7. Apply with properly calibrated spray equipment.
SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT Observe the following requirements when spraying in the vicinity of aquatic areas such as, but not limited to, lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes or natural ponds, estuaries and commercial fish ponds.
Droplet Size: Use the largest droplet size consistent with acceptable efficacy. Formation of very small droplets may be minimized by appropriate nozzle selection, by orienting nozzles away from the air stream as much as possible, and by avoiding excessive spray boom pressure.
For groundboom and aerial application, use only medium or coarser spray nozzles according to ASAE (S572) definition for standard nozzles, or a volume mean diameter (VMD) of 300 microns or greater for spinning atomizer nozzles. In conditions of low humidity and high temperatures, applicator should use a coarser droplet size.
Wind Direction and Speed: Make aerial or ground applications when the wind velocity favors on target product deposition (approximately 3 to 10 mph). Do not apply when wind velocity exceeds 15 mph. Avoid applications when wind gusts approach 15 mph. For all non-aerial applications wind speed must be measured adjacent to the application site on the upwind side, immediately prior to application.
Temperature Inversion: Do not make aerial or ground applications into areas of temperature inversions. Inversions are characterized by stable air and increasing temperatures with increasing distance above the ground. Mist or fog may indicate the presence of an inversion in humid areas. Where permissible by local regulations, the applicator may detect the presence of an inversion by producing smoke and observing a smoke layer near the ground surface. In conditions of low humidity and high temperature, applicators should use a coarser droplet size.
Additional Requirements for Ground Applications: Spray should be released at the lowest height consistent with pest control and flight safety. Applications more than 10 feet above the crop canopy should be avoided. For groundboom applications, apply with nozzle height no more than 4 feet above the ground or crop canopy.
Additional Requirements for Aerial Applications: For aerial applications, the spray boom should be mounted on the aircraft as to minimize drift caused by wingtip or rotor vortices. The minimum practical boom length should be used and must not exceed 75% of wing span or 90% rotor diameter. Aerial applicators must consider flight speed and nozzle orientation in determining droplet size. When applications are made with a cross-wind, the swath will be displaced downwind. The applicator must compensate for this displacement at the downwind edge of

Belay Insecticide

the application area by adjusting the path of the aircraft upwind.
APPLICATION PROCEDURES Foliar Application Select spray nozzles which will provide accurate and uniform spray deposition. Use spray nozzles which provide medium sized droplets and reduce drift. To help ensure accuracy, calibrate sprayer before each use. For information on spray equipment and calibration, consult nozzle manufacturers and/or State and County Extension Service.
Apply Belay Insecticide using sufficient water volume to provide thorough and uniform coverage. In situations where a dense canopy exists and/or pest pressure is high, use greater water volumes. The use of a spray adjuvant may improve spray coverage. Do not make applications under conditions where uniform coverage cannot be obtained or where excessive spray drift may occur.
Aerial Application for Cotton, Potato, Rice and Soybean Only Apply Belay Insecticide with the required amount of carrier to provide thorough coverage of the crop’s foliage. Applications by air need to be done using a minimum of 3 gallons per acre. Do not apply Belay Insecticide when the risk of excessive drift is expected due to temperature inversion, wind patterns and humidity. To prevent drift into neighboring crops and bodies of water obey the following: Consider the direction of the wind in relation to the spraying pattern that the aircraft will have to follow to make the application. Do not apply if wind direction can push droplets towards other crops and bodies of water. Do not apply Belay Insecticide when wind speeds are approaching 10 mph and consider droplet size. Smaller droplets, which include smaller than 200 microns, are more likely to cause drift. Consider a larger size droplet that also provides good coverage on the crop canopy. Nozzle orientation and boom size must be based on the wing span and type of aircraft (e.g. fixed wing vs rotary wing) to consider air streams, vortices and lift properties of the aircraft.
Application Through Irrigation Systems (Chemigation) Belay Insecticide alone or in combination with other products which are registered for application through sprinkler irrigation may be applied through irrigation systems. Apply this product only through micro-irrigation (individual spaghetti tube), drip irrigation, overhead irrigation or motorized calibrated irrigation equipment. Do not apply through any other type of irrigation system. Lack of effectiveness can result from non-uniform distribution of treated water. If you have questions about calibration, contact your State Extension Service specialist, equipment manufacturer or other experts. 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.

Using Water from Public Water Systems • Do not apply Belay Insecticide through any irri-
gation system physically connected to a public water system.
Public water system means a system for the provision to the public of piped water for human consumption if such system has at least 15 service connections or regularly serves an average of at least 25 individuals daily at least 60 days per year. Belay Insecticide may be applied through irrigation systems which may be supplied by a public water system only if the water from the public water system is discharged into a reservoir tank prior to pesticide introduction. There shall be a complete physical break (air gap) between the outlet end of the fill pipe and to top or overflow rim of the reservoir tank of at least twice the inside diameter of the fill pipe. Before beginning chemigation, always make sure that the air gap exists and that there is no blockage of the overflow of the reservoir tank.
Any irrigation system using water supplied from a public water system must also meet the following requirements:
Operating Instructions for All Specified Types of Irrigation Systems 1. The system must be calibrated to uniformly apply
the rates specified. If you have questions about calibration, contact your State Extension Service specialist, equipment manufacturer or other experts. 2. The system must contain a functional check valve, vacuum relief valve, and low pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water source contamination from backflow. 3. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump. 4. The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. 5. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops. 6. The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure switch which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected. 7. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock. 8. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended.

Calibration and Application Instructions Apply Belay Insecticide under the schedule specified in the specific crop rates/instructions, not according to the irrigation schedule, unless the events coincide. In general, set the equipment to apply the minimum amount of water per acre. Run the system at 86 to 90% of the manufacturer’s maximum rated travel speed.
The following calibration and application techniques are provided for user reference, but do not constitute a warranty of fitness for application through sprinkler irrigation equipment. Check with State and local regulatory agencies for potential use restrictions before applying any agricultural chemical through sprinkler irrigation equipment.
Center Pivot Irrigation Equipment 1. Use only drive systems that provide uniform water
distribution. 2. Do not use end guns when chemigating Belay
Insecticide through center pivot systems because of non-uniform application. 3. Plug the first nozzle closest to the well head to protect the water source. 4. Determine the size of the area to be treated. 5. Determine the time required to apply 0.1 to 0.25 inches of water over the area to be treated when the system and injection equipment are operated at normal pressures as recommended by the equipment manufacturer. Run the system at 80 to 95% of the manufacturer’s rated maximum travel speed. 6. Using water, determine the injection pump output when operated at normal line pressure. 7. Determine the amount of Belay Insecticide, and any tank mix partners, required to treat the area covered by the irrigation system. 8. Add the required amount of Belay Insecticide, and any tank mix partners, and sufficient water to meet the injection time requirements to the solution tanks. (See “Mixing Instructions” section of this label.) 9. Make sure the system is fully charged with water before starting injection of the Belay Insecticide solution. Time the injection to last at least as long as it takes to bring the system to full pressure. 10. Maintain constant agitation in the solution tank during the injection period. 11. Inject the specified amount of Belay Insecticide per acre continuously for one complete revolution of the system. 12. Stop the injection equipment after treatment is complete. Continue to operate the system until the Belay Insecticide solution has cleared all of the sprinkler heads. 13. Allow time for all lines to flush the pesticide through all nozzles before turning off irrigation water.

Solid Set, Hand Move and Moving Wheel Irrigation Equipment 1. Determine the acreage covered by the sprinklers. 2. Fill injector solution tank with plain water and
calibrate the flow rate of the system to deliver the contents of the tank over a 20 to 40 minute time interval. 3. Determine the amount of Belay Insecticide required to treat the area covered by the irrigation system. 4. Add the required amount of Belay Insecticide, and any other tank mix partners, into the same quantity of water used to calibrate the injection period. (See “Mixing Instructions” section of this label.) 5. Operate the system at the same pressure and time interval established during the calibration. 6. Inject specified amount of Belay Insecticide per acre for either a 20 to 40 minute period at the end of a regular irrigation set, or as a 20 to 40 minute injection as a separate application not associated with a regular irrigation to maximize retention of the insecticide by the foliage. 7. Stop injection equipment after treatment is completed. Continue to operate the system until the Belay Insecticide solution has cleared the last sprinkler head. To ensure lines are flushed and free from remaining pesticides, a dye indicator may be injected into the lines to mark the end of the application period.
