Add Warrior to the List of Products for Cutworm Control

April 19, 2002
In last week's Bulletin (issue no. 3, April 12, 2002), I forgot to include Warrior in Table 2, preventive insecticides registered for control of black cutworms in corn. The oversight occurred because the language regarding cutworm control appears under "General Directions for Use" rather than in the spray recommendations for corn. Nonetheless, the label states: "For cutworm control, Warrior Insecticide with Zeon Technology may be applied before, during, or after planting. For soil incorporated applications, use higher rates for improved control." The recommended rates of application are 1.92 to 3.2 oz per acre. We also forgot to include preplant and preemergence applications of Warrior in Table 2 of Chapter 1 of the 2002 Illinois Agricultural Pest Management Handbook. I regret the oversights.--Kevin Steffey
