Texas Sugarcane Aphid: EPA Gives Nod for Transform WG on Sorghum

Dale R. Scott and his colleagues at the Texas Department of Agriculture have once again secured EPA’s permission to use Transform WG (sulfoxaflor) on sorghum.

 

 

The conditions are identical to last year; the product may not be used within three days of flowering until seed set, there can only be two applications, and the highest rate is 1.5 oz/acre. The pre-harvest interval is 14 days for grain or seven days for grazing, forage, fodder or hay harvest.

The full EPA document is here.

We would like to thank Dale for his continued efforts on behalf of Texas sorghum producers; TDA has successfully garnered a Transform Section 18 each of the last four years.
