POST-HARVEST APPLICATIONS FOR MEALYBUG MANAGEMENT IN GRAPES Movento® is a fully systemic insecticide that actively moves through xylem and phloem tissues to reach the site where mealybugs feed. An actively growing vine is essential for the movement of Movento throughout the plant. Post-harvest and fall applications of Movento have been shown to reduce the population of overwintering mealybugs. To optimize the performance of Movento when applied after harvest, follow the guidelines below. CROP AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS t Canopy conditions

t Coverage – Use sufficient spray volume to achieve good coverage of canopy while avoiding runoff t Adjuvant t

Methylated Seed Oil (MSO) blend or nonionic surfactant with spreading and penetrating properties (use a rate that will aid leaf penetration)

t

Avoid adjuvants/additives that could cause the spray solution to sheet off the leaf

BENEFITS OF MOVENTO

t

Green and healthy leaves

t

Intact leaves, free from damage and prior to senescence

t

Free of physical barriers such as dust or honeydew

t Acropetal and basipetal (dual-direction) systemic activity provides excellent pest control in dense crop canopies and on plant roots t High level of residual efficacy and protection of new plant growth

t Weather conditions – Use when projected daily highs will be above 80° F for three weeks following application

t Reduced fecundity of treated females and reduced survival of offspring

t Applications should follow a post-harvest irrigation t Rainfastness – Allow two hours when an aggressive adjuvant is used; allow more time when a less aggressive adjuvant is used

t Speed of activity faster than Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) t Mode of action is ideal for incorporation into resistance management strategies

PRODUCT GUIDELINES

t Minimal risk to natural predators, making it an ideal addition to Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs

t Use Rate: 6 to 8 fl. oz./a, 12.5 fl. oz./a maximum per 12-month period t pH requirements – Buffer to a pH of 7 or below

FORMULATION Movento® is formulated as a two-pound active ingredient per gallon suspension concentrate (SC) product. Movento must be tank-mixed with a spray adjuvant/additive having spreading and penetrating properties to maximize leaf uptake and systemicity of the active ingredient within treated plants.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT Movento does not exhibit cross-resistance to insecticides from other chemical classes. To prevent or delay the development of resistance, it is recommended that Movento be applied in a block or window approach where chemical classes having a different mode of action are utilized in rotational sequences.

TIMING AND SPRAY COVERAGE Movento is most effective when applied as a preventative or threshold treatment. Good coverage of the target plant parts, based on the size and density of the treated crop, is recommended to facilitate maximum uptake by leaf surfaces.

GOOD IPM COMPATIBILITY Movento is ideal for IPM programs because it does not harm beneficial insects including predacious bugs, parasitic wasps, lacewings and ladybird beetles.
