Mocap EC Receives a 24c Label for Nematode Control on Snap and Lima Beans in Delaware

Bob Mulrooney, Extension Plant Pathologist; bobmul@udel.edu

Mocap EC received a 24c label for use in Delaware on snap beans and lima beans to control nematodes. Mocap 15G has been labeled for use on snaps and limas for a long time to control nematodes particularly root knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita). Since nobody has insecticide boxes on their planters anymore if you needed to control root knot, especially in lima beans, nothing else is labeled except for fumigants. This 24c label will allow use of Mocap EC for either applying in a band over the row and incorporated or shanked into the soil two inches from the seed at planting. It is very important to keep Mocap from coming into direct contact with the seed since it can reduce germination. This is also a toxic product and all personal protection equipment (PPE) needs to be worn. Be sure to read the label for all the important information: http://www.rec.udel.edu/Update09/MocapEC24cDE.pdf. The Delaware Dept of Agriculture granted this label in a timely manner for use this season after receiving the request from Bayer CropScience, the manufacturer of Mocap insecticide/nematicide.
