I just received word from Bobby Simoneaux, Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, that the EPA approved a Section 24C (special local need) for use of Dermacor X-100 in water-seeded rice in all 64 Louisiana parishes. This registration will expire on 2/6/2017. The purpose of this registration is to combat the recent detection of Mexican rice borer reproducing populations in western rice producing parishes of Louisiana. This registration is in addition to the existing Section 3 registration of Dermacor X-100 in dry-seeded rice.

Dermacor X-100 can be applied by a certified seed treater. Your local certified seed treater can provide more information on this specific use pattern.  To learn more about the seed treatments read this article.
