TDA approves SLN for Guthion in cotton

Application had been made to TDA by Bayer CropScience for the SLN registration. The FIFRA Section 24(c) application, along with copies of the proposed SLN Label, the federally registered product label and other supporting documents has been submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Federal law allows a state to declare a special local need registration for a specific product when conditions warrant. The state agency must forward a copy of its justification for the 24(c) registration to the Environmental Protection Agency.

The SLN label will amend the federal label of Guthion Solupak 50% wettable powder crop insecticide by increasing the wind speed from 10 mph to 15 mph for control of boll weevil only in cotton.

The Texas Department of Agriculture has approved the FIFRA Section 24(c) application as of October 30 and has assigned the registration number: EPA SLN Reg. No. TX-030011.

A copy of the label can be obtained from TDA or you can request a copy through Plains Cotton Growers, Inc. Phone (806) 792-4904 or
