Years of trial results over a period of 46 years, show that aldicarb applied at planting, is still the gold standard, to which other treatments are compared. It typically outperforms seed treatments, particularly under heavy thrips pressure. Studies comparing aldicarb (formerly sold as Temik) have proven longer residual early season pest control, greater plant vigor, higher boll set (in cotton) and generally increased yields across all registered crops.

Nematodes, thrips and the Mexican bean beetle often cause yield reductions in soybean production.

Several nematode species that adversely affect soybeans include the soybean cyst nematode as well as sting and lesion nematodes. AgLogic™ brand aldicarb pesticide has been shown to significantly improve yields in nematode infested fields.

It is also well documented that deer will avoid feeding on soybean plants in treated fields.

An at planting application of AgLogic protects peanut plants from thrips and nematodes for up to six weeks.
