The U.S. EPA has received a specific exemption request from the Idaho State Department of Agriculture to use the Dow AgroSciences’ insecticide sulfoxaflor (Transform) to treat up to 12,000 acres of alfalfa grown for seed to control lygus bugs. Before this application, the EPA just received exemption requests from Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi states to use sulfoxaflor for the control of plant bug on cotton.
The Applicant proposes to make no more than two applications per year of Transform WG, 0.047 to 0.086 pounds of active ingredient per application. 12,000 total acres of alfalfa grown for seed are requested to be treated. Ground applications must be made in a minimum of 15 gallons of water per acre. The use season is May 30, 2016 through August 31, 2016. The chemical is requested to be used in the State of Idaho within the counties of Ada, Canyon, Cassia, Franklin, Jerome, Oneida, Owyhee, Payette, and Twin Falls.
Comments must be received on or before May 24, 2016.
