COMMERCIAL TREATMENT OF FIELD CORN SEED - PEST SUPPRESSION

General Information

Regent TS insecticide may be applied as a waterbased slurry with other registered corn seed treatment materials, such as fungicides, micronutrients, and plant growth regulators. Potential tank mix partners should be tested for physical compatibility with Regent TS and added dyes or polymers before mixing in a large tank for seed treatment.

Regent TS should be applied with a seed treatment machine which can provide an accurate application of chemicals to seeds. Regent TS can be applied with a polymer to improve evenness and adherence and reduce dust. Follow manufacturer’s directions for quantity of polymer (such as CeIPril’s CelGard Film Coating) to be used. Use 10 – 24 fl oz of slurry per 100 lb seed or follow machine and polymer manufacturer’s recommendations for slurry volumes for corn. Use sufficient EPA approved seed dye or colored polymer to achieve a distinctive unnatural color on the seed.

To apply Regent TS using a mixing tank, place 3/4 of the water and all of the polymer or dye needed into the mixing tank and begin agitation. Measure the amount of Regent TS needed and add to the tank. Use the remaining water to thoroughly rinse the measuring container. Add rinsates to the tank. Maintain agitation during application.
