South Carolina could see bumper cotton crop this year

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.

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."
