Trade Names, Herbicides, Insecticides and Pesticides Caution

Use of trade or brand names in this publication is for clarity and information: It does not imply approval of the product to the exclusion of others that may be of similar, suitable composition, nor does it guarantee or warrant the standard of the product.

The herbicide and insecticide programs used in these budgets are based on UT Extension publications titled “2016 Weed Control Manual for Tennessee” (PB1580) and “2016 Insect Control Recommendations for Field Crops” (PB1768). Pesticides recommended in the publication were registered for the prescribed uses when this manual was printed. Pesticide registrations are continuously being reviewed. Should registration of a recommended pesticide be canceled, it will no longer be recommended by The University of Tennessee.

In order to protect people and the environment, pesticides should be used safely. This is everyone’s responsibility, especially the user. Read and follow label directions carefully before you buy, mix, apply, store, or dispose of a pesticide. According to laws regulating pesticides, they must be used only as directed by the label.
