Command in Peas – Can Now Rotate to Lima Beans

Mark VanGessel, Extension Weed Specialist;

FMC Corporation collaborated with Departments of Agriculture in Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey labeling Command 3ME for use on lima beans through the release of a 24(c) Special Local Need Label. This change occurred last spring. The label is available online at

Along with the label for use in lima beans, this label also allows for planting lima beans 60 days after application in a preceding crop. This allows use for Command use in peas and planting lima beans at least 60 days later.
