Disclaimer and Pesticide Warning - Please Read

Vineyard spray volumes:The rate per acre column gives rates for low-volume or concentrate applications.  Applications may be applied as semiconcentrate (40-100 gal/A) or concentrate (10-40 gal/A) sprays.  Use caution with more concentrated sprays; the smaller droplet sizes associated with low-volume applications are more prone to drift. The amount of pesticide to be applied for dilute applications (usually 100 gal/A in early season, 200 gal/A in mid-season, and 300 gal/A in late sesason) is usually given on the pesticide label.
