Product Overview

Assail 70WP Insecticide is a wettable powder formulation that provides effective control against insects pests on listed crops. It contains 70% acetamiprid active ingredient, a neonicotinoid insecticide that works through ingestion and contact. It is easily absorbed by the foliage tissues, then moves rapidly through systemic translaminar action. This versatile formula helps control all stages of sucking and chewing insects and is proven effective when used alone or as part of a resistance management program. It is designed to protect against aphids, beetles, caterpillar, chafer, fireworm, fruit fly, fruitworm, leafhoppers, leafminer, mealybug, psyllid, rootworm, sawfly, scale, spittlebug, thrips, whiteflies, and more and can be used on a wide range of crops. Thorough spray coverage is recommended to achieve superior control and performance. Available in 28 oz. jug with a measuring tube.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Application Instructions:

Apply ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide only through systems containing anti-siphon and check valves designed to prevent water source contamination or overflow of the mix tank and containing interlocking controls between the metering device and the water pump to insure simultaneous shut-off. Maintain a gentle continuous agitation in mix tank during mixing and application to assure a uniform suspension. Greater accuracy in calibration and distribution will be achieved by injecting a larger volume of a more dilute suspension per unit time. Application of more than recommended quantities of irrigation water per acre may result in decreased product performance. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift, when system connections or fittings leak, when nozzles do not provide uniform distribution or when lines containing the product cannot be flushed and must be dismantled and drained. In a center pivot system, block the nozzle set nearest the well/pivot/injection unit to prevent spray being applied to this area. Use of end guns which deliver uneven distribution of water is not recommended. Where sprinkler distribution patterns do not overlap sufficiently, unacceptable insect control may result. Allow sufficient time for pesticide to be flushed through all lines and all nozzles before turning off irrigation water. ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide may be applied in conjunction with chemically neutral liquid fertilizers. Application in conjunction with highly alkaline fertilizers, such as aqueous ammonia, may cause a degradation of the pesticide, resulting in reduced performance and should be avoided.

DIRECTIONS FOR AERIAL OR GROUND SPRAY APPLICATION

APPLICATION TIMING

Begin application when insect populations reach recognized economic threshold levels. Consult the Cooperative Extension Service, Professional consultants or other qualified authorities to determine appropriate threshold levels for treatment in your area.

INFORMATION

ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide is a 30% soluble granule for the control of many sucking and chewing insects on the crops listed in this label. The active ingredient in ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide is acetamiprid, a neonicotinoid insecticide that controls target insects through contact and ingestion. ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide is rapidly absorbed by the plant tissue and quickly moves via systemic translaminar activity to protect the entire leaf. However, thorough spray coverage is essential for optimal performance. ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide is rainfast once the spray solution has dried.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS:

Mixing and Application Instructions for ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide

ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide is a soluble granule formulation that readily disperses in water to form a spray mixture, which may be applied by ground or air.

  1. Plan ahead. Prepare only enough spray mixture as can be applied on the day of mixing.
  2. Fill tank 1/4 - 1/2 full with the required amount of total spray volume of water.
  3. Begin agitation and add product.
  4. Continue to fill tank.
  5. Allow mixing in tank for 2 minutes after filling or until thoroughly mixed before applying.
  6. Maintain continuous agitation during mixing and application to assure uniform suspension. If mixture sits without agitation for extended periods, agitate the mixture for at least 10 minutes before use.
  7. Equip spray system with a 50-mesh inline filter, which will protect nozzles that are typically used. Nozzles may also be equipped with 50-mesh nozzle filters or 25 to 50 mesh(equivalent) slotted nozzle filters.
  8. ASSAIL 70 WP Insecticide is unstable in water pH below 4 and above 9. If necessary, buffer water to obtain optimum pH range.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS:

ROW CROPS

Apply a minimum finished spray volume of 5 gallons per acre by air or 15 gallons per acre by ground unless otherwise directed under crop specific directions. For best results, it is important to obtain thorough and uniform spray coverage of the plant. For aerial application, select nozzles and pressure that deliver MEDIUM spray droplets as indicated in nozzle manufacturer’s catalogs and in accordance with ASAE Standard S-572.

The use of spray adjuvants, such as high quality non-ionic or silicone surfactants or methylated seed oils is recommended to enhance coverage and plant uptake and may improve pest control on certain crops. Please see specific crop use directions. The addition of an adjuvant is recommended for all applications made to vegetables (except legumes) and to cotton when controlling whiteflies. The use of stickers is not recommended. Some adjuvants can cause adverse effects on certain crops, such as spotting or burn to fruit or foliage. Select an adjuvant that will be safe for the target crop. Follow adjuvant use directions. Consult your local Extension Service, Crop Advisor or Nippon Soda Co., Ltd. representative for additional information. Use higher dosage rates for heavy infestations or dense foliage. The specific length of residual control depends on environmental factors, plant growth, dosage rate, and degree of insect infestation. For foliar banded applications, determine the amount of chemical to use per acre by dividing the band width by the row width and multiplying by the appropriate broadcast rate. To clean the sprayer after use, drain and flush with water. Use rinsate on crop according to label instructions or dispose of in an approved manner.

ORCHARD AND VINE CROPS (excluding grapes)

To achieve optimum pest control, it is important to obtain thorough and uniform spray coverage. Choose a finished spray volume appropriate for the size of tree or vine and amount of foliage which will provide thorough coverage throughout the canopy. For certain pests, also follow recommendations listed under crop specific directions. For aerial application, select nozzles and pressure that deliver MEDIUM spray droplets as indicated in nozzle manufacturer’s catalogs and in accordance with ASAE Standard S-572. Aerial applications may not provide as thorough coverage as ground applications.

The use of spray adjuvants, such as high quality non-ionic surfactants, methylated seed or horticultural oils, is recommended to enhance coverage and plant uptake and may improve pest control. The addition of an adjuvant is recommended for all applications to pome fruit when controlling codling moth, oriental fruit moth, and San Jose scale. The use of stickers is not recommended. Some adjuvants can cause adverse effects, such as spotting or burn to fruit or foliage. Select an adjuvant that will be safe for the target crop. Follow adjuvant use directions. Do not use adjuvants on grapes. Consult your local Extension Service, Crop Advisor or Nippon Soda representative for additional information.

Use higher dosage rates within the listed rate range for heavy infestations or dense foliage. The specific length of residual control depends on environmental factors, plant growth, dosage rate, and degree of insect infestation.

To clean the sprayer after use, drain and flush with water. Use rinsate on crop according to label instructions or dispose of in an approved manner.
