Lorsban 15G contains a Group 1B insecticide. Insect/mite biotypes with acquired resistance to Group 1B may eventually dominate the insect/mite population if Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by Lorsban 15G or other Group 1B insecticides.
To delay development of insecticide resistance, the following practices are recommended:
- Avoid consecutive use of insecticides with the same mode of action (same insecticide group) on the same insect species.
- Use tank mixtures or premix products containing insecticides with different modes of action (different insecticide groups) provided the products are registered for the intended use.
- Base insecticide use on comprehensive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.
- Monitor treated insect populations in the field for loss of effectiveness.
- Contact your local extension specialist, certified crop advisor, and or manufacturer for insecticide resistance management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and resistant pest problems.
- For further information or to report suspected resistance, you may contact Dow AgroSciences by calling 800-253-3033 or over internet at www.dowagro.com.
Apply as an at-plant T-band in a 4- to 10-inch band over an open seed furrow in front of the press wheel and incorporate into the top 1/2 to 1 inch of soil using suitable equipment. For postplant application, incorporate the granules in a 4- to 10-inch band to a depth of 1/2 to 1 inch using a suitable cultivator. Apply Lorsban 15G with equipment that provides uniform distribution of the granules over the row. Equivalent rates of Lorsban 15G per acre for various row spacing are given in Table 1.
Specific Use Precautions:
- Do not apply as an in-furrow treatment.
Specific Use Restrictions:
- Do not make more than 3 applications of any product containing chlorpyrifos per season with a maximum of 1 granular application and 2 liquid applications.
- The maximum single application rate is 8 oz of Lorsban 15G (1.2 oz ai chlorpyrifos) per 1000 feet of row.
- The maximum single application rate is 2 lb ai chlorpyrifos per acre for preplant/at-plant incorporation and 1 lb ai chlorpyrifos per acre for foliar and postharvest application.
- Do not make a foliar application of Lorsban-4E or other product containing chlorpyrifos within 10 days of an at-plant application of Lorsban 15G.
