South Carolina has received a Section 18 label for the use of Counter 20G for the control of Southern root knot nematodes on cotton.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Section 18 labels they are good only within one state (in this case S.C.) and are good for a limited time period.
Also, the grower is required by law to have a copy of this label in-hand when applying the Counter 20G.
The label has the following conditions:
- It is effective only from May 30, 2014 to July 1, 2014.
- It is for an at-plant in-furrow application of 5 to 10 lbs of Counter 20G
- Only 1 application per year is allowed.
- The Counter 20G must be formulated into an enclosed system such as Lock’n Load or SMARTBOX.
- Only cotton in Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Beaufort, Berkeley, Calhoun, Charleston, Chesterfield, Clarendon, Colleton, Darlington, Dillon, Dorchester, Florence, Georgetown, Hampton, Horry, Jasper, Kershaw, Lee, Lexington, Marion, Marlboro, Orangeburg, Richland, Sumter, and Williamsburg Counties may be treated.
