Supplemental Label for Capture 2EC

April 12, 2002
FMC Corporation has issued a supplemental label for use of Capture 2EC in Illinois (south of U.S. Route 136), Indiana (south of U.S. Route 36), Kentucky, Missouri, and Ohio. Capture 2EC can be applied as a broadcast preplant incorporated treatment for control of black cutworm, seedcorn maggot, white grubs, and wireworms. The rate of application is 3 to 4 ounces of product per acre. Incorporation of Capture should not be any deeper than the intended planting depth and no deeper than 3 inches.

Obviously this supplemental label is intended as an option for growers who do not have granular or liquid insecticide applicators mounted on their planters. This application method has not been thoroughly evaluated by university entomologists in the Midwest, so I can't offer any readily available efficacy data. If I learn more, I will report the findings in a future issue of the Bulletin.--Kevin Steffey
