DRY SEEDED RICE - SUPPRESSION OF GRAPE COLASPIS

General Information

When applied according to the DERMACOR X-100 Rates table, DERMACOR X-100 will provide protection against injury by rice water weevil larvae, and early to mid-season control of Mexican rice borer, rice stalk borer, and sugarcane borer. The target DERMACOR X-100 treatment rate is 1.75 fluid ounces per acre (0.071 lbs active ingredient per acre). Do not use more than 0.084 lb ai per acre. For controlling severe infestations or when longer residual control is desired, use the higher seeding rate for any given rate of DERMACOR X-100 per 100 lbs of rice seed (see Rates-Grower Guide table). Consult your local DuPont Crop Protection company representative or agricultural advisor for guidance on predicted pest pressure based on historical field data for these pests in your area. For specified application rates refer to the DERMACOR X-100 seed treatment Rates-Processor Guide table.

DERMACOR X-100 seed treatment must be used only in accordance with directions on the label or in separate supplemental labeling distributed by DuPont as a result of EPA or State 24(c) approvals.

DuPont will not be responsible for losses or damages resulting from the use of this product in any manner not specifically stated on the label or other labels or bulletins published by DuPont. User assumes all risks associated with such non-recommended use.

DERMACOR X-100 may be applied to dry rice seed, including conventional, “Clearfield”, and hybrid seed varieties, which will be drilled or broadcast. For dry seed broadcast application, the rice seeds must be incorporated into the soil. Dry rice treated with DERMACOR X-100 cannot be soaked or pre-germinated before planting.

DERMACOR X-100 is a member of the anthranilic diamide class of insecticides with a novel mode of action acting on insect ryanodine receptors. DERMACOR X-100 is effective through ingestion of treated plant material. After exposure to DERMACOR X-100, affected insects will rapidly stop feeding, become paralyzed, and typically die within 1 - 3 days.

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT

DuPont supports the use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs to control pests. This product may be used as part of an IPM program, which can include biological, cultural, and genetic practices, aimed at preventing economic pest damage. IPM principles and practices include field scouting or other detection methods, correct target pest identification, population monitoring, rotation of insecticides with different modes-of-action, and treating when target pest populations reach locally determined action thresholds. Consult your state cooperative extension service, professional consultants or other qualified authorities to determine appropriate action treatment threshold levels for treating specific pest/crop or site systems in your area.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT

For resistance management, DERMACOR X-100 is a Group 28 Insecticide. Repeated and exclusive use of DERMACOR X-100 (chlorantraniliprole, belonging to the anthranilic diamide class of chemistry) or other Group 28 Insecticides may lead to the buildup of resistant strains of insects in some crops.

Some insects are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly for control. Because the development of resistance cannot be predicted, this product may be used as part of resistant management strategies established for the use area.

These strategies may include incorporation of cultural and biological control practices, alternation of mode-of-action classes of insecticides on succeeding generations and targeting the most susceptible life stage. Consult your local or state agricultural authorities for details.

If resistance to DERMACOR X-100 develops in your area, DERMACOR X-100 or other products with a similar mode of action, may not provide adequate control. If poor performance cannot be attributed to improper application or extreme weather conditions, a resistant strain of insect may be present.

If you experience difficulty with control and resistance is a reasonable cause, immediately consult your local DuPont Crop Protection company representative or agricultural advisor for the best alternate method of control for your area.

APPLICATION AND MIXING GUIDANCE

DERMACOR X-100 may be applied as a water-based slurry with other registered rice seed treatment materials, such as fungicides, micronutrients, and plant growth regulators.

Potential mixing partners should be tested for physical compatibility with DERMACOR X-100 and added dyes or polymers before mixing in a large tank for seed treatment.

Avoid mixtures of several materials and very concentrated spray mixtures. Observe the most restrictive of the labeling limitations and precautions of all products used in mixtures.

Do not mix this product with any product that prohibits such mixing. For application rate ranges refer to the DERMACOR X-100 Seed Treatment Rates tables.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

DRY SEEDED RICE FOR SUPPRESSION OF GRAPE COLASPIS

DuPont Dermacor X-100 Treatment Insecticide is recommended for use as a seed treatment on dry seeded rice for suppression of Grape Colaspis.

Dermacor X-100 will provide suppression of Grape Colaspis (Colaspis brunnea) in dry seeded rice. Suppression can mean inconsistent control at a levels below the generally considered acceptable commercial control.

USE RATES AND METHOD OF APPLICATION

Apply DERMACOR X-100 at 1.75 fluid ounces per acre using seeding rates of 60 to 120 lbs. of rice seed per acre. Refer to the table on the Dermacor X-100 federal label for tables providing additional application rate ranges based upon rice seeding rate. Suppression can mean inconsistent control and/or at a level below the generally acceptable commercial control.

Restricted Entry Interval

4 hours

Exception: If the seed is treated with the product and the treated seed is soil-injected or soil-incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
