COTTON - GRASSHOPPER
Use low rate under light to moderate infestation. Higher rates should be used under heavy insect pressure. The rate of application is variable according to insect pressure, timing of spray and field scouting.
For cutworm, armyworm, or stalk borer control, Mustang Max Ec insecticide may be applied before, during, or after planting. For soil-incorporated applications, use higher rates for improved control.
Mustang Max EC may be applied in water or refined vegetable oil. When water is used, apply a minimum of one gallon of finished spray per acre by air or five gallons of finished spray with ground equipment. When applying in water by air, one quart of emulsified oil may be substituted for one quart of water in the finished spray. When using oil, use a minimum of one quart per acre in the finished spray.
Follow appropriate spray drift precautions on the label.
For control of grasshoppers, applications should be made based on careful field scouting. Treatment decisions should be made based on evidence of feeding damage and presence of grasshoppers in cotton. Loss of cotyledon leaves in seedling cotton should be considered more important than leaf loss in older cotton. Applications should be made on a broadcast basis since grasshopper are highly mobile.
Adjust rates based on populations of grasshopper found in fields. Applications should be made on a three to five day schedule until grasshopper populations are under control or until foliage loss subsides.
Increase application rates as grasshopper size and population density increases.
Do not graze or feed cotton for forage.
