Greenhouse and Shade House Crops
Notice to Users: Agri-Life® may be used in greenhouses and shade houses to control diseases on crops, which appear on this label, and specific instructions have been developed for the crops listed. The grower should bear in mind that the sensitivity of crops grown in greenhouses and shade houses differs greatly from that of crops grown under field conditions.
Neither the manufacturer nor the seller has determined whether or not Agri-Life® can be used safely on all crops grown in greenhouses and shade houses. Consequently, injury arising from its use on these types of greenhouse and shade house crops is the user’s responsibility. The user should determine if Agri-Life® can be used safely prior to commercial use. In a small area, apply the recommended rates to the plants in question, i.e., foliage, fruit, etc., and observe for 7 to 10 days for symptoms of phytotoxicity prior to commercial use.
Apply Agri-Life® according to specific rates given for those crops in oz. (lb. Cu2+) per acre.
One fluid ounce = 29.6 milliliters = 6 teaspoons per 1,000 square feet is equivalent to 43.6 ounces (.168 lbs.) per acre. Agri-Life® should be applied in adequate water for thorough coverage of plant parts. Begin the application at the first sign of disease and repeat at 7- to 14-day intervals or as needed. Use shorter spray intervals during periods when severe disease conditions persist.
Note: Phytotoxicity may occur on young tender flush when Agri-Life® is applied to citrus seedlings grown in greenhouses or shade houses.

Trunk Injection Applications (Shade and Ornamental Trees)
Elm for Dutch Elm Disease and Cankers (Botryodiplodia, Cytospora, Tubercularia)
Inject once during the growing season for control or prevention. Injection sites should be 6 in. or less above the soil line. Injection should not be done against Dutch Elm disease if the Elm appears more than 20% diseased or if the disease may have entered through root grafts from another diseased tree or stump. Remove dead and diseased limbs within 10 days after treatment.
