Directions for USe

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. This label must be in possession of the user at the time of pesticide application. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation. Use Best Management Practices (BMPs) for minimizing surface runoff in the following areas: • Poorly drained or wet soils with readily visible slopes toward adjacent surface water • Areas over-laying extremely shallow ground water • Areas with in-field canals or ditches that drain to surface water • Areas not separated from adjacent surface waters with vegetated filter strips • Areas over-laying tile drainage systems that drain to surface water When used on erodible soils, BMPs for minimizing runoff should be followed. Consult your local soil conservation service for recommendations in your use area. In particular, where highly erodible land (HEL) is adjacent to aquatic bodies, leave a 66 foot buffer/setback area in grass or other natural vegetation.

Restrictions: • Do not use this product on any crop on Long Island, New York. Do not apply this product by air. • Do not apply more than one application of Thimet 20-G per crop per season. • Do not apply this product to saturated soils. Do not apply in wet soil conditions that may prevent the equipment from covering pesticide granules. Do not apply while precipitation conducive to runoff is occurring or while conditions favor runoff from the treated area. Do not apply when forecasted precipitation event favors runoff from treated area. Under some conditions phorate may have a high potential for runoff into surface water for several days following application. Do not apply in the following areas: • Frequently flooded areas • Areas where intense or sustained rainfall is forecast to occur within 48 hours Do not apply within 50 feet of any drinking water well to minimize potential contamination. Do not wash, load, or empty application equipment near any well, as this practice is a potentialsource of ground water contamination.

AGRICULTURAL USE REQUIREMENTS Use this product only in accordance with its labeling and with the Worker Protection Standard, 40 CFR part 170. This Standard contains requirements for the protection of agricultural workers on farms, forests, nurseries, and greenhouses, and handlers of agricultural pesticides.

Exception: If the product is soil-injected or soil-incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated. PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves contact with anything that has been treated, such as plants, soil, or water, is: • Coveralls over long-sleeved shirt and long pants • Chemical-resistant gloves, such as those made of waterproof material • Chemical-resistant footwear plus socks • Protective eyewear Notify workers of application by warning them orally and by posting warning signs at entrances to treated areas.
