Perma-Guard Garden D-21
For control of aphids, whitefly, beetles, loopers, mites, leaf hoppers, and others! For use in the greenhouse or outdoors on fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains and grass--up to and including day of harvest.
Perma-Guard Garden product is licensed to be used for pest control in and around the home, yard, animal housing, etc. It can be applied as a dry dust, or mixed with water at the rate of 2 oz. per quart and sprayed as a liquid.
The goal is to get coverage over the entire plant, especially under the leaves. For young plants, as little as two pounds per acre may be adequate. For larger plants, 5 lb/acre is probably sufficient. With extra growth, it might be necessary to increase the amount. An examination of the leaves will tell if the leaf bottom is covered.
A good dust applicator is essential, and should be equipped with electronic nozzles, which put a negative charge on the dust. The plant being positive, attracts the dust making for a better coverage even on leaf bottom.
The same rates per acre apply when using as a wettable powder. Adding water is merely a means of using existing spray equipment.
Minimum: 1 lb. to 2 gals. water Maximum: 1 lb. to 25 gals. water The purpose is to get a solution that will flow easily through the nozzle and still put the recommended amount of product per acre. Again, it is essential to get coverage on the underside of the leaf.
Garden and Yard Plants
