The proposed new uses include applications to cotton, potatoes, leafy vegetables, citrus and stone fruit, persimmons, pomegranates and grapevines, and an import tolerance for tea. The registration application covers a 155 g/litre emulsion concentrate and a 157 g/litre suspension concentrate formulation for use at 14-27 fl oz/acre (1-2 litres/ha).
