Delegate 250 WG is a foliar insecticide for the control of thrips, false codling moths and caterpillars on roses and thrips on carnations. Its active ingredient, spinetoram, is derived from the fermentation of Saccharopolyspora spinosa, a naturally occurring soil organism. It controls insects both by contact and ingestion while providing a long residual effect at low use rates.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Delegate 250WG should be mixed with water and applied as a foliar spray with ground equipment suitable for conventional insecticide spraying.
Avoid drift into other crops, grazing lands, rivers, dams or other areas that are not under treatment. Keep by- standers out of the area being treated. Do not spray in windy conditions.
Timing of Application
For determining when to spray, scout with enough regularity to monitor the
population size of the labeled pest. Treat when pests appear, targeting eggs at hatching or the small larvae.
