CEREAL GRAINS - SORGHUM GRAIN - BORER AND BUG
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, usually at intervals of 5 or more days. Timing and frequency of applications should be based upon insect populations reaching locally-determined economic thresholds.
- 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 sorghum midge control, begin applications when 25% of the sorghum heads have emerged and are in tip bloom. Repeat applications at 5-day intervals if needed.
- For chinch bug control, begin applications when bugs migrate from small grains or grass weeds to small sorghum. Direct spray to the base of sorghum plants. Repeat applications at 3-5-day intervals if needed. LAMBDA T may only suppress heavy infestations and/or subsequent migrations.
- Do not apply more than 0.06 lb. a.i. (0.48 pts.)/A per season after crop emergence.
- Do not apply more than 0.02 lb. a.i. (0.16 pts.)/A per season once crop is in soft dough stage.
Mexican Rice Borer, Rice Stalk Borer, and Sugarcane Borer: For control before the larva bores into the plant stalk.
