New registration sought for aldicarb

Ag Logic LLC seeks registration for aldicarb Label would include cotton, dry beans, peanuts, soybeans and sugar beets Comment period set through April 29  

It has already been well reported that recent legal actions filed against Bayer CropScience resulted in closure of the plant that manufactures the raw material used to produce Temik. This has meant a permanent halt in Temik production, with no further availability of the product other than meager inventory in some dealer/distributors or in some growers’ barns.

However, there is a ray of hope for the future.

A company named Ag Logic LLC is seeking to obtain a new permanent registration of an aldicarb product. The Environmental Protection Agency has announced that Ag Logic LLC has submitted an application to register the active ingredient aldicarb as a 15 percent pesticide in cotton, dry beans, peanuts, soybeans and sugar beets. EPA is seeking comment by April 29th.

That Ag Logic LLC has come forth in attempt to register an aldicarb product is good news for Texas cotton growers who rely heavily on aldicarb for control of nematodes and thrips. We encourage growers and interested parties to submit supportive comments on the new registration.

We encourage you to visit the EPA web site and submit your opinion regarding the value of aldicarb to our cotton production system.
