REI: All pesticide products used in the production of agricultural crops have a prescribed-time restricted entry interval (REI) for worker protection. REI is stated on the label. For the most part, entry into treated areas during the prescribed time (usually hours) REI is not allowed.

PHI: The preharvest interval is the amount of time that must elapse between a pesticide application and harvest of the crop. PHI (usually days) depends on the specific pesticide label you are following, and the crop to which it is applied.

FRAC: Fungicide Resistance Action Committee Code Number. Fungicides with the same number should not be used consecutively, as they are similar in chemistry and/or mode of action and doing so may increase the risk of resistance.

IRAC: Insecticide/ Miticide Resistance Action Committee Code Number. Insecticdies/ Miticides with the same number should not be used consecutively, as they are similar in chemistry and/or mode of action and doing so may increase the risk of resistance.

HRG: Herbicide Rotation Guide. To avoid selecting for herbicide-resistant weeds, do not use herbicides from the same group more than once within three years. Rather, rotate to a different group every year of the production system.

Note for Rally: The Oregon 24c label is for the 5 oz rate for Evergreen blackberry only. However, Rally is also registered for all caneberries at the 2.5 oz rate.
