General Information


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.

Preventive Use

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.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions


Apply as needed based on pest thresholds determined by scouting practices. Refer to Extension Scouting guidelines for scouting techniques, pest thresholds and treatment timing and treatment intervals. Determine the need for repeat applications, usually at intervals of 7 days, by scouting.

Mustang can be safely applied in conjunction with approved rice herbicides.

Apply by air or ground equipment using sufficient water to obtain full coverage of foliage. When applying by air, apply in a minimum of 5 gallons of water per acre. For increased control, crop oil concentrate at 16 fluid ounces per acre may be used.

For control of rice water weevil in dry seeded rice, make a foliar application as indicated by scouting for the presence of adults and/or feeding scars, usually within a time-frame of 0-5 days after permanent flood establishment. Do not exceed 10 days from starting permanent flood until insecticide application unless scouting indicates adult weevils are not present. Adults may also be treated at later stages of rice development to reduce overwintering populations.

For control of rice water weevil in water seeded rice, make the first application after flooding when scouting indicates the presence of adults and/or feeding scars. Application should usually begin when rice has emerged 0.5 inch above the waterline. Under conditions of prolonged migration into the field, start field scouting for rice water weevil adults and/or feeding scars 3-5 days after the initial treatment and, if needed, apply a second application within 7-10 days of the first application. Adults may also be treated at later stages of rice development to reduce overwintering populations.

Green bug is known to have many biotypes. Mustang may only provide suppression. If satisfactory control is not achieved with the first application of Mustang, a resistant biotype may be present. Use alternate chemistry for control.

Do not make applications less than 7 days apart.

Do not release floodwater within 7 days of an application.

Do not use treated rice field for the aquaculture of edible fish and crustacea.

Do not apply as an ultra-low volume (ULV) spray.

Aphid control may be variable depending on species present and host-plant relationships.
