M-Pede Insecticide Miticide Fungicide is a potent formula all rolled into one concoction for control and restraint of soft-bodied insects, powdery mildew, and mites. This formulation is derived from potassium salts of naturally procured fatty acids. This product can be utilized to control and restrain targeted insect pests on produce and crops which include grapes, vegetables, tree fruits, cotton, tree nuts, tobacco, shade and ornamental trees, shrubs, foliage and flowering plants, turf, and other small fruits all growing and thriving outdoors within greenhouses and interiorscapes. With 0 day restriction on Pre-Harvest Interval, it is safe to be applied on crops and produce up to the harvest day and with 12-hour Restricted Entry Interval (REI). Available in a 2.5 galllon jug.
Stand Alone Rate: M-Pede rates as low as 0.25% v/v or as high as 4% v/v may be used. The 2% v/v rate is the most frequently used stand-alone rate.
Refer to individual sections of this label for specific use rates for control of pests on specific crops.
Rates are provided as a % volume/volume (v/v) solution. A 2% solution is prepared by adding 2 gallons of M-Pede to 98 gallons of spray water.
The activity of this product is directly related to the solution concentration and to contact with the pest, not the amount of product applied per acre.
Tank Mix Rate: To achieve enhanced and residual pest control, use a 1 to 2% v/v solution of this product in combination with a specified product. See label for Rate Table.
Always determine the compatibility of water, pesticides and other tank additives with this product prior to addition to the spray tank. Determine compatibility by conducting a jar test using proportional quantities of each material.
Use freshly mixed spray made with soft water. If water has high mineral content (hardness >300 ppm or 17.5 grains/gallon), check for compatibility as described above. If needed, add an approved compatibility agent to the tank prior to the addition of this product. Do not lower the pH of the final spray mixture below 8.0. See notes to User: Understanding Plant Sensitivity.
A defoaming agent may be needed for use in sprayers equipped with an agitator.
This product is compatible with other labeled pesticides and Bt based insecticides. However, when tank mixing M-Pede with other products, a compatibility test (jar test) using relative proportions of the tank mix ingredients should be conducted prior to mixing ingredients in the spray tank. When tank mixing, read and carefully follow all applicable use directions, precautions, and limitations on the respective product labels. In interpreting all labels for the tank mix, the most restrictive situations must apply.
Unless otherwise noted, do not tank mix this product with adjuvants such as penetrators, spreader stickers or activators, gibberellic acid, calcium nitrate, or diatomaceous earth, foliar nutrients, alkaline based chelating agents (such as EDTA), Aliette fungicide, chlorothalonil and pesticides containing sulfur or metallic ions (such as manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc, etc.) as they may be physically incompatible and/or phytotoxic.
Do not mix M-Pede with Carzol® insecticide as they are not physically compatible.
Do not mix M-Pede with sulfur. Do not use within 3 days of a sulfur application.
When using this product in a tank mix, read and follow all product labels. The order of mixing is:
Compatibility agent (if needed)
Wettable and soluble powders
Emulsifiable oils and concentrates
Application of spray mixtures should conform to use precautions and directions for all products included in the tank mix. Combinations should be kept agitated and sprayed promptly after mixing.
TIMING OF APPLICATION
Initiate applications as soon as the pest is observed, or as needed to avoid economic injury. Repeat applications at one-week intervals, or as needed, to control infestation or increasing pest populations.
Do not make repeat applications at less than 7-day intervals, or make more than 3 sequential applications at 7 to 14-day intervals unless your experience has shown the use pattern to be non-injurious to the type and the development stage of plant(s) to be treated under local growing conditions.
This product may be applied with most types of ground or aerial spray equipment. Do not use with pulse or thermal fogger applicators. Do not apply through any type of irrigation system.
This product must come into contact with the targeted soft-bodied pests or powdery mildew to be effective. Complete coverage of pests is essential for maximum control. Direct sprays to contact the pests. In general, adequate coverage requires a minimum of 50 gallons of total spray volume per acre. Higher volumes may be required on larger perennial crops.
Apply M-Pede solutions to wet (minimize run-off) to decrease the potential for injury on foliage, fruits, and flowers of sensitive plants.
Apply promptly after mixing with other pesticides to avoid or reduce alkaline hydrolysis of certain pesticides.
Avoid applications when wind conditions impair thorough coverage.
Avoid applications on new transplants and unrooted cuttings.
