The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted a specific exemption under Section 18 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act to the Texas Department of Agriculture for the use of TOPGUARD Fungicide to control cotton root rot. This is according to a Jan. 9 Cheminova Inc. press release.

This means for the third consecutive year, Texas cotton growers can use TOPGUARD to manage cotton root rot, a devastating disease that is estimated to cause direct yield losses of as much as $40 million annually.

This emergency use is effective Feb. 1, and expires Monday, June 30. Anyone applying TOPGUARD for cotton root rot must have a copy of the TOPGUARD Fungicide Section 18 Exemption label on hand during application.
