GENERAL INFORMATION 

 

FOLEX



 

6 EC is a cotton defoliant that is used to remove leaves from cotton plants prior to anticipated harvesting.  

Formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate, FOLEX

 

6 EC contains 6 pounds active ingredient per gallon. FOLEX



 

6 EC 


is most commonly mixed with water and applied to cotton using either ground or aerial equipment.  However, diesel oil 

may be substituted for water under adverse weather conditions.  Folex is non-corrosive and will not damage metal parts 

normally used in applying spray chemicals. 

 

FOLEX



 

6 EC usually drops leaves in a green condition and will not appear effective until defoliation actually begins, 

approximately 3 days after application.  By this time, the field will have an “off-cast” color.  Under favorable 

conditions, satisfactory leaf drop will require 5 to 7 days.  Adverse conditions, such as low temperatures and/or 

toughened plants (drought stressed, etc.) may extend this to 10 to 14 days. 

 

FOLEX



 

6 EC is effective when applied to cotton with a heavy dew.  Once FOLEX

 

6 EC has dried on the leaf, 



subsequent rainfall or dew does not adversely affect its activity.  Application of FOLEX

 

6 EC is not recommended 



when a heavy rainfall is expected within 1 hour after treatment.  Conditions which delay absorption into the leaves are 

primarily those which cause the cotton leaves to be wilted, toughened, or leathery.  When these conditions prevail, use 

diesel oil instead of water.

FOLEX

 

6 EC does not suppress second growth especially where rainfall follows defoliation.  A second application of 



FOLEX

 

6 EC will be effective in defoliation of this second growth if excessive regrowth occurs between the first 



application and first and/or second harvest. FOLEX

 

6 EC must be applied in sufficient water or diesel oil to give 



thorough coverage of the leaves.  Larger droplets more effectively reach the lower leaves. 

 

Use the higher FOLEX



 

6 EC rate under conditions of low temperature, low humidity, or plant stress. 

 

FOLEX


 

6 EC may be used alone for bottom defoliation of the leaves on lower portion of the plant as a preconditioner 

prior to total defoliation, or as a total defoliation treatment. FOLEX

 

6 EC may also be used in combination with Dropp



®

 

(tank mix). 



 

IMPORTANT: Observe all cautions and limitations on labels of all products used in mixtures specifically when 

FOLEX


 

6 EC is tank mixed with products for use on cotton in areas where citrus is grown.  Observe buffer zones and 

other restrictions on the FOLEX

 

6 EC label and/or in the manufacturer’s recommendations for Folex. 



 

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS 

 

FOLEX ALONE: Fill the spray tank 1/2 to 3/4 full with clean water.  Begin agitation and add the recommended 

amount of FOLEX

 

6 EC.  Add water to the spray tank to the desired level.  Maintain sufficient agitation to ensure a 



uniform spray mixture during application.  Follow same mixing instructions when diesel oil is substituted for water. 

 

TANK MIXTURES: Fill the spray tank 1/2 to 3/4 full with clean water and begin agitation.  When tank mixing with 

Dropp, add the recommended amount of Dropp first.  After Dropp is thoroughly mixed with water, add the 

recommended amount of FOLEX

 

6 EC.  Add water to the spray tank to the desired level.  Maintain sufficient agitation 



while mixing and during application to ensure a uniform spray mixture.  If spray mixture is allowed to remain without 

agitation for short periods of time, be sure to agitate until uniformly mixed before application.  Do not use diesel oil 

when Folex is used in a tank mixture with other products.  For boll opening and defoliation, see below. 

 

COMPATIBILITY: To determine the compatibility of FOLEX

 

6 EC with other products, do the following:  (1) pour 



the recommended proportions of the products into a suitable container of water, (2) mix thoroughly and (3) allow to 

stand at least five minutes.  If the combination remains mixed or can be re-mixed readily, it is considered physically 

compatible.  For further information contact your local AMVAC Representative. 

 

ADDITION OF ADJUVANTS: To improve spray coverage, FOLEX

 

6 EC may be applied with the following 



adjuvants: (1) commercial blends of vegetable or petroleum-based oils, (2) non-ionic surfactant and (3) diesel oil (if 

allowed by local regulations).  Diesel oil (3 to 5 gallons by air or 5 to 10 gallons by ground) may be helpful when night 

temperatures drop below 60°F, plants are under moisture stress or on storm-proof cotton varieties. 

 

Only adjuvants which are exempt from tolerance requirements under 40 CFR 180.1001 may be used.  Test the 



compatibility of FOLEX

 

6 EC plus Dropp 50WP with the selected adjuvant prior to mixing in the spray tank (see 



compatibility section). 

 

DOSAGE: Use the specified dosage of FOLEX

 

6 EC in water or once refined vegetable oil (see Recommended 



Applications Table) or diesel (see ADDITIONS OF ADJUVANTS).  Apply sufficient spray to ensure uniform leaf 

wetting.  All leaves must be treated for complete defoliation. FOLEX

 

6 EC does not suppress secondary growth. 



 

SPRAY EQUIPMENT CLEANING AND DECONTAMINATION 

Do not allow pesticide mixtures to dry in spray equipment.  Dried pesticides residues may become resuspended and 

damage other crops if uncleaned spray equipment is used to apply other products during the same or following year. 

 

Thoroughly clean the spray equipment with a chemical cleaner before using for other products.  Use a cleaner such as 



“Spic and Span”, “Fantastic”, or “Formula 409”.  If chlorate type chemicals have been used in the same spray 

equipment, thoroughly wash spray tank and particularly dried deposits on aircraft fabric. 

 

Immediately after applying FOLEX



 

6 EC, remove all unused spray mixture and follow directions on this label for 

disposal.  Thoroughly clean the spray tank, lines, nozzles, and exterior surfaces of spray equipment.   Use one of the 

cleaners listed above.  Follow directions on this label for disposal of wash and rinse water. 

 

APPLICATION PROCEDURES 

Do not apply FOLEX

 

6 EC through any type of irrigation system.  



FOLEX

 

6 EC alone and in a tank mixture with Dropp can be applied by both ground and aerial equipment.

GROUND APPLICATION 

Use a standard high clearance sprayer that provides a uniform accurate application.  Sprayer should be equipped with 

screens no finer than 50 mesh in the nozzle tips and in-line strainers.  A minimum spray volume of 10 gallons per acre 

is recommended when FOLEX

 

6 EC is applied with water and a minimum of 5 gallons per acre is recommended when 



FOLEX

 

6 EC is applied with diesel oil. 



Do not allow sprays to drift from the application site and contact people, structures people occupy at any time and 

nontarget crops, aquatic and wetland areas, woodlands, pastures, rangelands, or animals.   

For ground rig applications, apply product no more than 4 feet above the ground or the crop canopy and only when 

wind speed in 10 mph or less at the application site as measured by an anemometer. 

 

AERIAL APPLICATION 

Use aerial equipment equipped with a diaphragm-type nozzle that produces cone spray patters with a maximum spray 

pressure of 40 psi at the nozzle tips.  Nozzles should be located no farther than 3/4 the distance from the center of the 

aircraft to the end of the wing or rotor.  The aircraft should discharge the spray a maximum of 10 feet above the crop.  

Do not apply when winds may cause drift to adjacent fields. 

 

A minimum spray volume of 5 gallons per acre should be used when FOLEX



 

6 EC and tank mixtures with FOLEX

 



EC are applied with water. FOLEX



 

6 EC alone may be applied in a minimum of 3 gallons of spray volume per acre 

when using diesel oil (minimum of 5 GPA in California). 

 

Aerial applicators must be in enclosed cockpits. 



 

Aerial Drift Reduction Advisory:  Avoiding spray drift at the application site is the responsibility of the applicator.  

The interactions of many equipment- and weather-related factors determine the potential for spray drift.  The applicator 

and the grower are responsible for considering all these factors when making decisions. 

 

The following drift management requirements must be followed to avoid off-target drift movement from aerial 



applications to agricultural field crops.  These requirements do not apply to forestry applications, public health uses or 

to applications using dry formulations. 

 

1.

 



The distance of the outer most nozzles on the boom must not exceed 3/4 the length of the wingspan or rotor. 

2.

 



Nozzles must always point backward parallel with the air stream and never be pointed downwards more than 45 

degrees. 

 

Where states have more stringent regulations, they should be observed.  The applicator should be familiar with and take 



into account the information covered in the Aerial Drift Reduction Advisory information. 

Information on Droplet Size 

The most effective way to reduce drift potential is to apply large droplets.  The best drift management strategy is to 

apply the largest droplets that provide sufficient coverage and control.  Applying larger droplets reduces drift potential, 

but will not prevent drift if applications are made improperly, or under unfavorable environmental conditions (see 

Wind, Temperature and Humidity, and Temperature Inversions). 

Controlling Droplet Size 

Volume: Use high flow rate nozzles to apply the highest practical spray volume.  Nozzles with higher rated flows 

produce larger droplets. 



Pressure: Do not exceed the nozzle manufacturer's recommended pressures.  For many nozzle types lower pressure 

produces larger droplets.  When higher flow rates are needed, use higher flow rate nozzles instead of increasing 

pressure. 

Number of Nozzles: Use the minimum number of nozzles that provide uniform coverage. 

Nozzle Orientation: Orienting nozzles so that the spray is released parallel to the airstream produces larger droplets 

than other orientations and is the recommended practice.  Significant deflection from horizontal will reduce droplet size 

and increase drift potential. 

Nozzle Type: Use a nozzle type that is designed for the intended application.  With most nozzle types, narrower spray 

angles produce larger droplets.  Consider using low-drift nozzles.  Solid stream nozzles oriented straight back produce 

the largest droplets and the lowest drift. 

Boom Length 

For some use patterns, reducing the effective boom length to less than 3/4 of the wingspan or rotor length may further 

reduce drift without reducing swath width. 



 

11477-4                                                                                                                                                              Page 6 of 8   



Application Height 

Applications should not be made at a height greater than 10 feet above the top of the largest plants unless a greater 

height is required for aircraft safety.  Making applications at the lowest height that is safe reduces exposure of droplets 

to evaporation and wind. 



Swath Adjustment 

When applications are made with a crosswind, the swath will be displaced downwind.  Therefore, on the up and 

downwind edges of the field, the applicator must compensate for this displacement by adjusting the path of the aircraft 

upwind.  Swath adjustment distance should increase, with increasing drift potential (higher wind, smaller drops, etc.) 



Wind 

Drift potential is lowest between wind speeds of 2-10 mph.  However, many factors including droplet size and 

equipment type determine drift potential at any given speed.  Application should be avoided below 2 mph due to 

variable wind direction and high inversion potential.  NOTE:  Local terrain can influence wind patterns.  Every 

applicator should be familiar with local wind patterns and how they affect spray drift. 

Temperature and Humidity 

When making applications in low relative humidity, set up equipment to produce larger droplets to compensate for 

evaporation.  Droplet evaporation is most severe when conditions are both hot and dry. 

Temperature Inversions 

Applications should not occur during a temperature inversion because drift potential is high.  Temperature inversions 

restrict vertical air mixing, which causes small, suspended droplets to remain in a concentrated cloud.  This cloud can 

move in unpredictable directions due to the light variable winds common during inversions.  Temperature inversions 

are characterized by increasing temperatures with altitudes and are common on nights with limited cloud cover and 

light to no wind.  They begin to form as the sun sets and often continue into the morning.  Their presence can be 

indicated by ground fog; however, if fog is not present, inversions can also be identified by the movement of smoke 

from a ground source or an aircraft smoke generator.  Smoke that layers and moves laterally in a concentrated cloud 

(under low wind conditions) indicates an inversion, while smoke that moves upward and rapidly dissipates indicates 

good vertical air mixing. 



Sensitive Areas 

The pesticide should only be applied when the potential for drift to adjacent sensitive areas (e.g., residential areas, 

bodies of water, known habitat for threatened or endangered species, non-target crops) is minimal (e.g. when wind is 

blowing away from the sensitive areas).

conditions.  Consult your AMVAC sales representative, crop consultant or university extension for local 

recommendations.  In some instances rates as low as 0.33 pints/acre FOLEX

 

6 EC when combined with a second 



harvest-aid product may be advisable for desired defoliation and or boll opening while avoiding unwanted leaf stick. 

 

The combination of FOLEX



 

6 EC and PREP

 brand Ethephan Plant Regulator is used for total plant defoliation and to 



accelerate cotton boll opening. FOLEX

 

6 EC and PREP may be applied as a tank mixture or used in 2 separate 



sequential applications.  Tank mixture of FOLEX

 

6 EC + PREP is recommended for use in all cotton growing states as 



is applications of FOLEX

 

6 EC sequential to PREP



 (minimum of 4 days between applications). FOLEX

 

6 EC + PREP 



tank mixtures or sequential applications should be applied to cotton when there is sufficient mature unopened bolls to 

produce the desired yield and when 30% to 60% of the cotton bolls are open.  If used in rank cotton, a pretreatment 

with FOLEX

 

6 EC (see FOLEX



 

6 EC Recommendations for use rate) may be useful to ensure thorough coverage of 

unopened bolls by later sequential application of PREP.  Refer to and observe all label use directions and precautions 

on the PREP label.  Occasionally slight reduction on boll opening response has been observed when tank mixtures of 

FOLEX

 

6 EC + PREP have been used. 



 

DEFOLIATION AND INHIBITION OF REGROWTH 

Tank mixtures such as FOLEX

 

6 EC + Dropp are recommended for defoliation when heavy regrowth control is 



required.  Defoliation and inhibition of regrowth is obtained when the tank mixture is applied to mature cotton plants 

when 60% or more bolls are open.  A second application of labeled rates of FOLEX

 

6 EC + Dropp, or FOLEX



 

6 EC 


alone maybe made where necessary.

Use Limitations 

 



Tank mix activity is maximum when 60% or more bolls are open and the mean 24-hour temperature before and 

after application is above 60°F. 

 

Use the lower rate of each product when conditions are favorable, for example, high temperatures and high 



humidity. 

 



Use the high rate of Dropp when environmental conditions favor heavy regrowth.  When minimum night 

temperature is below 60°F use FOLEX

 

6 EC alone. 



 

Adverse conditions may require a longer time for complete defoliation or a second application. 



 

Do not exceed 2-1/2 pints/Acre/Year of FOLEX



 

6 EC for California and Arizona, and 1-1/2 pints/Acre/Year for 

all other states. 

 



Do not apply FOLEX

 

6 EC plus Dropp 50WP to immature cotton (less than 60% bolls open) or higher than 



recommended product dosages, as desiccation and leaf freezing may occur. 

 



Refer to Dropp label for additional use directions and precautions when using tank mixtures of FOLEX

 

6 EC with 



Dropp. 

 



Do not apply FOLEX

 

6 EC within 7 days of harvest. 



 

DEFOLIATION AND WEED CONTROL 

FOLEX

 

6 EC + HARVADE

®

For additional desiccation of certain weed species, FOLEX

 

6 EC may be tank mixed at 



labeled rates with Harvade according to the directions for use on the Harvade label. 

 

FOLEX



 

6 EC + ROUNDUP

®

: In States permitted by the Roundup label, the full labeled rate of FOLEX

 

6 EC (1 to 1-



1/2 pints/A) can be tank mixed with Roundup to obtain defoliation, regrowth inhibition and to provide additional weed 

control to better facilitate harvesting.  Refer to the Roundup label for use directions, regrowth inhibition statement, and 

weeds controlled.
