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.
For 40 years, there has simply been no better substitute for aldicarb in terms of pest control, advances in IPM programs and return on investment for the grower.
It is crucial that the supply of aldicarb be sufficiently maintained to meet the pest control needs of farmers.
With the development of tobacco thrips resistance to the chloronicotinoid seed treatments, the value of effective alternatives such AgLogic’s aldicarb for cotton is significant.
The U.S. cotton industry recognizes the historical, safe, labeled use of aldicarb and its benefits, particularly for nematode control. The industry also understands that the lack of alternatives for aldicarb is still an important issue.
