CEREAL GRAINS - CORN - BORER, ARMYWORM, BEETLE ETC.
GENERAL DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Initial and residual control are contingent upon thorough crop coverage. Apply with ground or air equipment using sufficient water to obtain full coverage of foliage. Apply in a minimum of 2 gals./A by air or 10 gals./A by ground unless otherwise specified in the label. When foliage is dense or pest pressure is high (heavier insect or egg pressure, larger larval stages), use of higher application volumes and/or higher use-rates may improve initial and residual control.
For cutworm control, LAMBDA T may be applied before, during, or after planting. For soil incorporated applications, use higher rates for improved control.
- Apply as required by scouting, or locally prescribed corn growth stages, usually at intervals of 7 or more days. Timing and frequency of applications should be based upon insect populations reaching locally-determined economic thresholds or other locally recommended methods.
- Apply with ground or air equipment using sufficient water and application methods to obtain full coverage of target location. When applying by air, apply in a minimum of 2 gals. of water/A.
- For chinch bug control, begin applications when bugs migrate from small grains or grass weeds to small corn. Direct spray to the base of corn plants. Repeat applications at 3-5-day intervals if needed. LAMBDA T may only suppress heavy infestations and/or subsequent migrations.
- For control of adult corn rootworm beetles (Diabrotica species) as part of an aerial applied corn rootworm control program use a minimum of 3.84 fl. oz./A (0.03 lb. a.i./A).
- Do not allow livestock to graze in treated areas or harvest treated corn forage as feed for meat or dairy animals within 1 day after last treatment. Do not feed treated corn fodder or silage to meat or dairy animals within 21 days after last treatment.
- Do not apply more than 0.06 lb. a.i. (0.48 pts.) after silk initiation. Do not apply more than 0.03 lb. a.i. (0.24 pts.) after corn has reached the milk stage (yellow kernels with milky fluid).
Mexican Rice Borer, Rice Stalk Borer, Sugarcane Borer : For control before the larva bores into the plant stalk or ear.
Southern Corn Leaf Beetle, Greenbug: Suppression only.
Greenbug: See resistance statement under General Directions for Use.
