Louisiana Cotton, Sorghum: Transform WG Gets Section 18 Emergency Use Exemptions

The EPA has granted Section 18 emergency use exemptions for Transform WG insecticide in cotton and sorghum.  Transform targets sap-feeding pests including the major yield-robbers – tarnished plant bug in cotton and sugarcane aphid in sorghum. Transform has shown excellent control of tarnished plant bug, a perennially troublesome cotton pest. Louisiana crop consultant Hank Jones, with RHJ Ag Services, LLC, said the Section 18 emergency use exemptions are crucial for growers.
