  • ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDSAvoid spray drift to nearby crops as this product maycause temporary modifications in plant growth.Do not contaminate water used for irrigation or domesticpurposes.Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surfacewater is present or to intertidal areas below the mean highwater mark. Do not contaminate water when disposing ofequipment washwaters.Prolonged exposure to spray deposits can damage acrylicplastics, certain paints, and metals. Remove automobilesand other vehicles from the treatment area prior toapplication to prevent spray deposits from falling onvehicles and potentially damaging finishes. Rinse acrylicplastic materials and painted surfaces exposed toinadvertent spray deposits using soap and water within anhour after exposure.

  • GREENHOUSE, SHADEHOUSE AND FIELD GROWNFLORICULTURE CROPSA foliar spray of FLOREL BRAND GROWTHREGULATOR will increase lateral branching, preventflower initiation and development, and inhibit internodeelongation on a wide range of floricultural crops. Theseinclude, but are not limited to: Azalea, Begonia,Chrysanthemum, Fuchsia, Zonal and Ivy Geranium,Impatiens, English Ivy, Lantana, Petunia, Poinsettia,Verbena, and Vinca vine (Vinca major).

    DEFOLIATIONA foliar spray of FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATORapplied after buds are matured, will initiate earlier leaf dropof Roses, Tallhedge, and Apple nursery stock. This willallow digging of stock plants prior to the onset ofunfavorable weather.A foliar spray of FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATORto container-grown plumeria plants accelerates defoliationprior to storage. This reduces fungal problems on dormantplants. A foliar spray of FLOREL BRAND GROWTHREGULATOR to plumeria trees in the field causes leafabscission and stimulates the appearance ofinflorescence buds. This use enhances winter flowerproduction in warm sites such as Hawaii.

    FLOWER INDUCTION OF BROMELIADSA foliar spray of FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATORinitiates flowering of ornamental bromeliads such asAnanas, Aechmea, Neoregelia, Vriesia, and Billbergia.

    REDUCTION OF PLANT HEIGHT AND STEM TOPPLEA foliar spray of FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATORwill aid in reducing total plant height of potted daffodils andstem topple of potted hyacinths at time of full flower.

    HYBRID SEED PRODUCTIONA foliar spray of FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATORwill modify sex expression and flowering pattern ofcantaloupe, cucumbers, pumpkins and squash to facilitatehybrid seed production. Do not use on cantaloupe,cucumbers, pumpkins or squash to be harvested for freshor processed markets.

    AGRICULTURAL USE REQUIREMENTSUse this product only in accordance with its labeling andwith the Worker Protection Standard, 40 CFR Part 170.This Standard contains requirements for the protectionof agricultural workers on farms, forests, nurseries, andgreenhouses, and handlers of agricultural pesticides. Itcontains requirements for training, decontamination,notification, and emergency assistance. It also containsspecific instructions and expectations pertaining to thestatements on this label about personal protectiveequipment (PPE), notification to workers and restricted-entry intervals. The requirements in this box only applyto uses of this product that are covered by the WorkerProtection Standard. Do not enter or allow worker entry into treated areasduring the restricted-entry interval (REI) of 48 hours.The REI is 72 hours in areas where average rainfall isless than 25 inches per year.PPE required for early entry to treated areas that ispermitted under the Worker Protection Standard andthat involves contact with anything that has beentreated such as plants, soil or water is: coveralls overlong-sleeved shirt and long pants, chemical-resistantgloves, chemical-resistant shoes plus socks, andprotective eyewear.Notify workers of the application by warning themorally and posting warning signs at entrances totreated areas.

  • NON-AGRICULTURAL USE REQUIREMENTSThe requirements in this box apply to uses of thisproduct that are NOT within the scope of the WorkerProtection Standard for agricultural pesticides (40 CFRPart 170). The WPS applies when this product is usedto produce agricultural plants on farms, forests,nurseries, or greenhouses.For ornamental fruit elimination and mistletoe removal,DO NOT allow people (other than applicator) or pets ontreatment area during application. DO NOT entertreatment areas until spray has dried. DO NOT allowpeople or pets to touch treated plants until sprays havedried.

    CHEMIGATION: Do not apply FLOREL BRAND GROWTHREGULATOR through any type of irrigation system.

    UNDESIRABLE FRUIT ELIMINATION (Ornamental UseOnly)A foliar spray of FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATORwill reduce or eliminate undesirable fruit on ornamentaltrees and shrubs such as: Apple, Crabapple, Carob, Elm,Flowering pear, Flowering plum, Horsechestnut (Buckeye),Oak, Olive, Sour Orange, Sweetgum, Sycamore andothers. Applications must be made before fruit set for bestresults.When applied to plants, FLOREL BRAND GROWTHREGULATOR readily enters the plant and breaks down toethylene, a naturally occurring plant hormone. Ethyleneproduction within the plant is stimulated by stress. For thisreason it is important that plants being treated are notunder stress from drought, high temperature, disease orother environmental stress conditions. Treating stressedplants can cause severe injury to the plant such asdefoliation or leaf scorching. Injury from FLOREL BRANDGROWTH REGULATOR usually does not kill the plant, butcan render it unsightly.Applications should be made at the mid to full bloomstage, prior to fruit set in spray volumes sufficient to wet,but not to runoff. Failure to wet blooms thoroughly will


    58086 FlorelGR_Bklt_1qt 12/1/11 8:25 AM Page 7

  • cause incomplete fruit elimination. Spraying too much(until runoff) may cause some defoliation or other plantinjury. Sprays applied too early or too late will be lesseffective and result in incomplete fruit elimination. Theactivity of FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATOR islinked to plant growth activity and is therefore sloweracting when temperatures are low (60F) or very high(95F). Trees or shrubs should not be under stress whentreated such as from drought, insects or diseases. Applywhen rain is not expected for 24 hours.For most species, mix 1 quart of FLOREL BRANDGROWTH REGULATOR in 10 gallons of water (1,000 ppmof ethephon in spray solution) and apply to thoroughly wetblooms but not to runoff. Amount of spray used willdepend on tree size. Some temporary leaf yellowing andleaf drop of old leaves may occur after treatment.For sensitive species such as Carob: Mix 1/2 quartFLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATOR in 10 gallons ofwater (500 ppm of ethephon in spray solution) and applyto thoroughly wet buds and blooms but not to runoff.Amount of spray solution used will depend on tree size.Some temporary leaf yellowing and drop of old leavesmay occur after treatment.FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATOR has not beentested on all varieties of trees or shrubs which may haveundesirable fruit. If it is necessary to treat plant speciesnot listed above, treat only a small portion of the plant todetermine the effectiveness of the product and to evaluateplant injury.NOTES: (1) Plants under sprayed trees are usually notaffected at this rate. However, some plants are sensitive toFLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATOR (nandina,maples, etc.). If desired or if effects are unknown, theplants may be covered before spraying or the solution canbe washed off of foliage with a water hose afterapplication. (2) FLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATORis not intended to be used in commercial fruit productionas a thinning agent.

Applications made inconjunction with silvicultural mistletoe management willprevent spread of the mistletoe parasite to other parts ofthe tree and to other trees. Mix 1 quart of FLORELBRAND GROWTH REGULATOR in 4 gallons of water(2700 ppm of ethephon in spray solution) and spray towet. When treating mistletoe in Douglas Fir, mix 1 pint ofFLOREL BRAND GROWTH REGULATOR in 4 gallons ofwater (1350 ppm of ethephon in spray solution).Application of higher rates on Douglas Fir may result inexcessive needle drop. Use of a nonionic surfactant atrecommended rates may increase effectiveness. Treat anymistletoe regrowth before seed dispersal occurs. Matureneedle drop, that normally occurs in the fall, may behastened by the use of FLOREL BRAND GROWTHREGULATOR. Apply when temperature is above 65F andrain is not expected for 24 hours. NOTE: Plants undersprayed trees may be sensitive to FLOREL BRANDGROWTH REGULATOR at this rate. Either cover theplants befor...
