A four day old application of Assail at 8oz - 1.5" of rain last night followed by .5" tonight (along with 1 minute of hail) - would this application retain its effectiveness or should I think of it in the same fashion that I would consider an application of Imidan under the same situation? - in other words, I'd consider Imidan to be effectively gone after 2" of rain but Assail has systemic action that is possibly not as affected by rain? I'm mainly worried about codling moth, but it's time for leafhoppers to show up too. I'd like to wait a week before the next application - David Doud grower Indiana - _______________________________________________ apple-crop mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://virtualorchard.net/mailman/listinfo/apple-crop _______________________________________________ apple-crop mailing list email@example.com http://virtualorchard.net/mailman/listinfo/apple-crop
