contact, ingestion and insect growth regulatory activity.
Azera is an ideal organic solution for hard-to-kill insects. It is made from two distinctly powerful active ingredients derived from botanical sources.

Tips for Best Performance
- Buffer the pH of the Azera spray solution to 5.5-7.0. Application of the spray solution with a pH outside of this range may result in poor performance on target pests
- Azera is a contact insecticide – good coverage is key. The amount of water used as a carrier has to be sufficient to achieve good coverage and contact target insects
- Azera may be applied in conjunction with a spreader or wetting agent While Azera should be compatible with most products, conducting a small-scale test to ensure the lack of phytotoxicity of the combination is recommended.
- Consider application in early morning, late evening or during the night. Reduced UV exposure and lower temperatures will increase performance and reduce impact on pollinators.
- For most situations, start at the “mid” application rate for Azera. a. In general using Azera at the rate of 32 fl oz/A provides excellent knockdown and kill of insects. Conditions under which increasing the rate used per acre are recommended include the following: 1) extremely high insect populations, or 2) when the insect population is dominated by late-stage immature or adults
- Carefully monitor insect population and apply when insects are in their early life stage. Monitor your crops for the first appearance of insects and treat the insects during the early stages of colonization.
- Apply Azera when target insects are active. Apply when the target insects are active to increase the direct contact during early stages of colonization.
- Remove beneficial insects or apply when beneficial insects are not present.
