Aldicarb controls more early-season cotton
pests than any other available product and fits well into integrated pest management (IPM) programs
since it has a minimal impact on beneficial cotton insects.
It’s that time of year again. Planting is right around the corner. Florence and Michael have come and gone. What’s going to be different this year? When planting time rolls around, calibration is key to getting the most “bang out of the buck.”
Root-knot nematode is one of the most destructive pests in Georgia peanut production. The problem is further complicated by its wide host range, dwindling control options and particularly challenging management in sandier type soils.
South Carolina could see bumper cotton crop this year
After rain damaged it in the last two years, this looks to be a bumper year for the South Carolina cotton crop, just as a Clemson University economist predicted before planting even began. Cotton, peanut and soybean producers in South Carolina will soon have aldicarb to use in their fight against insects and nematodes.
Georgia Gets AgLogic 15G to Replace Temik Pesticide
Growers will soon be able to purchase AgLogic 15G Aldicarb Pesticide – a product which is essentially the same as Temik in formulation and performance. Since Temik was withdrawn from the market in 2011, growers have struggled to find an effective replacement for nematode and early season pest control.
Gus Lorenz, Arkansas Extension IPM Specialist: “ The best treatment I’ve looked at this year has been aldicarb. It’s performing as well as it did in the ‘old days’ when it was called Temik. I think it’s doing as good as it always did but we’ve just forgotten how well it performed. With resistance issues, the seed treatments also are showing a little wear and tear, and that really makes the aldicarb shine."
