Descriptions of Conditions or Treatments

Dip Treatments - B&B and Container Plants - Chlorpyrifos (Dursban).

Drench Treatments - Container Plants - Only Imidacloprid (Marathon 60 WP) Apply one-half (0.5) gram of active ingredient per gallon as a prophylactic treatment just prior to Japanese beetle adult flight season. Bifenthrin (Talstar Nursery Flowable 7.9%) Mix at the rate (20) ounces per 100 gallons of water.

Media (Granule) Incorporation - Container Plants Only Imidacloprid (Marathon 1 G). Mix at the rate of (5) pounds per cubic yard, or Talstar Nursery Granular or Talstar T&O Granular (0.2 G). Mix at the rate of 25 ppm or one third (0.33) of a pound per cubic yard based on a potting media bulk density of 200.or Tefluthrin (Fireban 1.5 G) Mix at a rate of 25 ppm based on a potting media bulk density of 400.

Screened Greenhouse- All media must be sterilized All stock must be free of soil During the adult flight period the greenhouse/screenhouse must be made secure so that adult Japanese Beetle can not gain entry. No Japanese Beetle contaminated material shall be allowed into the secure area at any time The greenhouse/screenhouse will be officially inspected by phytosanitary officials. Plants and growing medium must be appropriately protected from subsequent infestation while being stored packed and shipped. Certified greenhouse/screenhouse nursery stock may not be transported into or through any infested areas. Each greenhouse/screenhouse operation must be approved by the phytosanitary officials as having met and maintained the above criteria, and issued an appropriate certificate bearing the following declaration The rooted plants (or crowns) were produced in an approved Japanese Beetle free greenhouse or screenhouse.

Production during a pest free window - (Off season planting) - The entire rooted plant production cycle will be completed within a pest free window, in Japanese beetle-free commercial growing medium or sterilized field soil, i.e., planting, growth, harvest, and shipment will occur outside the adult Japanese Beetle flight period, June through September. The accompanying phytosanitary certificate shall bear the following additional declaration these plants were produced outside the Japanese Beetle flight season.

Containerized Nursery Accreditation -A weed free zone may be established based on mechanical cultivation, use of herbicides capable of killing the above and below-ground portions of weed plants, application of sufficient mulching to prevent weed emergence and growth, use of plastic film or barrier cloth, or use of exclusion techniques. Weed free zones must be established prior to weed establishment and continued throughout the adult flight season. Weeds should be killed when young to minimize presence of organic matter.
