I’ll start by saying the label is the law and do not go outside of those guidelines. Period.Do you think the chemical companies would go to the time and trouble to put it in differently labeled packages if they didn't have to? There's your sign.
that being said I use two products that are exactly the same, Pageant and Pristine. Both are the same AI and percentage rate but one is labeled for fruit trees (pristine) and one for ornamental applications (pageant). Legally I can’t use one for the wrong application.
while there may be a reason I’m unaware of, it always kind of irked me and felt arbitrary. I don’t think it’s some kind of conspiracy for them to get more money though.
I’d love to hear the true reason if anyone knew.
