Hachi-Hachi SC Crop Tolerance
Hachi-Hachi SC has been tested on a wide variety of common greenhouse crops with no phytotoxic effects. SePRO continues to test additional species for crop sensitivity in an effort to develop a broad, expansive list of tolerant ornamental plants. To minimize plant sensitive, utilize small droplet producing applicators, avoid pooling of spray solution on the plant and make applications during the cooler part of the day when the plants are under less stress. In all cases, the user should test Hachi-Hachi SC on a small sample of the plants to be treated to ensure satisfaction. Do not apply Hachi-Hachi SC to impatiens, New Guinea impatiens, baby's breath (gypsophilia), phlox, salvia or poinsettias.

Hachi-Hachi SC inhibits the electron transfer system of energy metabolism in the mitochondria of susceptible insects. Tolfenpyrad is relatively new chemistry to the US ornamental market, but it is used extensively in many other countries.
