Rotation Interval for Halex GT to Lima Beans is Reduced for Delaware
A Special Local Needs label (24c) to allow lima beans to be planted 10 months after a Halex GT application. The full label has an 18-month restriction, which prevented Halex GT application in one year and rotation to lima beans the next season. This label specifies that soil pH needs to be at least 6.0 and at least 18 inches of rain or irrigation occurred between application and planting lima beans. This means fields with corn treated with Halex GT last summer can be rotated to lima beans this summer. This label has only been approved for Delaware at this time and the label is valid for five years.
Command in Peas Can Now Rotate to Lima Bean
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. 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.
GoalTender Label for Cole Crops
The GoalTender label for cole crops has been renewed by NuFarm, and the label has been extended until 2027. This allows postemergence use in broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower.
