Intrepid Edge Insecticide is a highly effective insecticide that controls insect pests, particularly soybean pests. Contains two active ingredients that are both powerful in controlling insect pests. It is fast-acting, eliminating 70 percent of soybean looper within 24 hours and 98 percent control of corn earworm between two to four days. The Intrepid Edge Insecticide features a unique mode of action with Spinetoram as one of its active ingredients and the only Insecticide Resistance Action Committee Group 5 Insecticide. It also has excellent residual control because of Methoxyfenozide. An insecticide that controls pests such as moth, cutworm, looper, leafroller, pod worm, leafminer, thrips, webworm, psyllid, armyworm, and leafworm. This insecticide is great for resistance management and may be applied to crops including corn, carrots, cotton, grape, ginseng, potato, peanut, soybean, tomato, walnut, and yum. Available in a one-gallon jug.
Fill the spray tank with water to about one-half of the required spray volume. Start agitation and add the required amount of
product. Continue agitation while mixing and filling the spray tank to the required spray volume.
Yes, if used as directed on the label.
NOT FOR SALE TO:
Controls more than 98 percent of corn earworm pests within two to four days after application and soybean looper populations with 70 percent control within 24 hours.
Carefully read, understand and follow label use rates and restrictions. Apply the required amount of Intrepid Edge with properly calibrated aerial or ground spray equipment that has been adjusted to deliver thorough uniform coverage. Prepare only the amount of spray solution required to treat the measured acreage. Use lower rates in the rate range for light infestations of the target pest species and use higher rates in the rate range for moderate to heavy infestations. Use the specified amount of Intrepid Edge per acre regardless of the spray volume used.
Always shake well before use. Avoid freezing.
Intrepid Edge - Alone
Fill the spray tank one-third to one-half full of clean water. Start agitation and slowly pour the required amount of Intrepid Edge into the spray tank. Continue agitation while mixing and filling the spray tank to the required spray volume. Maintain sufficient agitation during application to ensure uniformity of the spray mix. Do not allow water or spray mixture to back-siphon into the water source.
Intrepid Edge - Tank Mix
When tank mixing Intrepid Edge with other materials, a compatibility test (jar test) using relative proportions of the tank mix ingredients should be conducted prior to mixing ingredients in the spray tank. If foliar fertilizers are used, the jar test should be repeated with each batch of fertilizer utilizing the mixing water source. Do not use acidifying buffering agents in tank mixes with Intrepid Edge. Vigorous, continuous agitation during mixing, filling and throughout the application is required for all tank mixes. Sparger pipe agitators provide the most effective agitation in spray tanks. To prevent foaming in the spray tank, avoid stirring or splashing air into the spray mixture.
Mixing Order for Tank Mixes: Fill the spray tank with water to one-fourth to one-third of the required spray volume. Start agitation. Add different formulation types in the order indicated below, allowing time for complete dispersion and mixing after the addition of each product. Allow extra time for dispersion and mixing time for dry flowable products.
Add different formulation types in the following order:
1. Water-dispersible granules
2. Wettable powders
3. Intrepid Edge and other aqueous suspensions
Maintain agitation and fill spray tank to three-fourths of total spray volume. Then add:
4. Emulsifiable concentrates and water-based solutions
5. Spray adjuvants
6. Foliar fertilizers
Finish filling the spray tank. Maintain continuous agitation during mixing, final filling and throughout the application. If spraying and agitation must be stopped before the spray tank is empty, the materials may settle to the bottom. Settled materials must be resuspended before spraying is resumed. A sparger agitator is particularly useful for this purpose.
Premixing: Dry and flowable formulations may be premixed with water (slurried) and added to the spray tank through a 20 to 35 mesh screen. This procedure assures good initial dispersion of these formulation types.
Spray Tank pH: A spray tank pH between 5 and 9 is suggested to achieve maximum performance of Intrepid Edge. If the water source is outside of this pH range, or tank mixing other pesticides, adjuvants, or foliar nutrients will cause the pH to fall outside this range, consider adjusting the spray tank pH to be between 5 and 9 before adding Intrepid Edge. To do this, add all other tank mix components first, then check the spray tank pH and adjust if desired, and then add Intrepid Edge. If you require additional information on how to adjust spray tank pH, contact your Dow AgroSciences representative.
The optimum timing of application for Intrepid Edge depends upon the feeding behavior of the target pest. For cryptic (internal) feeding larvae, the application must be made prior to the time that surface feeding occurs, i.e., just before initiation of egg hatch. For foliar or surface feeding larvae, the application may be made while active feeding is occurring.
Reapplication may be required to protect new flushes of foliage, or rapidly expanding fruit, and for extended infestations. The reapplication interval will vary depending upon how rapidly the crop is growing, the generation time of the target pest and the duration of the infestation.
Intrepid Edge is effective against all larval instars; however, it is good practice to make applications to early instars to minimize feeding damage. For best results, begin applications when threshold levels of moths, eggs or larvae occur. Consult the Cooperative Extension Service, or other qualified professional authorities, to determine the appropriate threshold and timing for application in your area.
Applications must be in a manner that assures uniform and thorough coverage. Higher water volume and increased spray pressure provide better coverage.
Proper application techniques help ensure thorough spray coverage and correct dosage for optimum insect control. The following directions are provided for ground and aerial application of Intrepid Edge. Attention should be given to sprayer speed and calibration, wind speed, and foliar canopy to ensure adequate spray coverage.
Do not apply Intrepid Edge in greenhouses or other enclosed structures used for growing crops.
Citrus Fruits (Crop Group 10)
avocado leafroller, citrus leafminer, citrus orange dog worm, citrus peel miner, cutworms, fruit tree leafroller, light brown apple moth, orange tortrix, western tussock moth
6 – 12 fl oz/acre
Apply at the first observation of the target pests on the flushing leaves.
Scout for corn borers and armyworms with enough regularity to monitor egg laying and egg hatch. Apply at first sign of egg hatch (field corn), feeding damage (sweet corn), or when infestations reach threshold levels as defined by a cooperative extension service or other qualified professional authorities.
For control of first-generation European corn borer and armyworms, direct application at the whorl for early season (first generation) infestations.
Apply as broadcast or multi-nozzle over the row application to mid- and late-season infestations.
Under heavy infestations, continuous moth flights, or rapid crop growth and development, reapply at 5- to 10-day re-treatment interval.
8 – 12fl oz/acre
For control of corn earworm, apply broadcast or direct spray to ear zone. Use sufficient spray volume and nozzle pressure to ensure thorough wetting of the silks. A 2-day re-treatment schedule may be necessary at silking.
Apply at egg hatch or when first signs of feeding occur
Under heavy infestations, continuous moth flights and/or egg masses and larvae in all stages of development, a 10- to 14-day re-treatment interval is required to protect new growth until moth flights and/or hits subside.
cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa Zea), fall armyworm, tobacco budworm
6 – 8 fl oz/acre
