Admire

Overview

Admire® has been an important product for Canadian potato growers for over 10 years. It provides economical, broad-spectrum control of many important insects in many different crops, most notably potatoes. The recommended use pattern in potatoes is in the soil (in-furrow or seed-piece treatment). This will provide extended control of Colorado potato beetle, aphids, potato leafhopper and potato flea beetle.

Application Tips

  • Admire used in the soil (in-furrow or seed-piece treatment) is the choice of the majority of Canadian potato growers
  • Improves overall crop health
  • Delivers early protection right from emergence
  • Reduces the need for in-season insect scouting and foliar applications
  • No opportunity for spray drift
  • Easy on beneficials

  • Use the higher rate for extended length control and for resistance management

 

Seed piece treatment:

  • 26 - 39 mL per 100 kg seed pieces (12 - 18 mL/cwt)
  • For later maturing varieties / longer control, use 39 mL/100 kg (18 mL/cwt)

Application Tips


In-furrow:

  • Apply as a narrow band. For best results, direct spray on seed pieces or seed potatoes in the furrow

 

Seed-piece treatment:

  • Each seed piece must receive uniform coverage and an adequate dose
  • Apply the specified rate using a contained, shielded spray system in a ventilated area
  • Use ConeJet nozzles
  • Drum treaters are recommended to provide most consistent overall coverage
  • Apply before application of fungicide dust
  • Plant treated seed pieces in a timely fashion. Exposure to sunlight will reduce insecticide effectiveness and promote tuber root and shoot development.
  • Ensure workers are wearing proper protective equipment
  • Dispose of any treated seed as per label directions
