Use of Closed Injection for In-Furrow Applications of Liquid Furadan 4F Insecticide/Nematicide and Disulfoton Insecticide on Cotton

T.I. Crumby, S.J. Stringer, J.L. Taylor


In 1986, FMC pioneered the use of returnable reusable insecticide containers under the trademark, U-Turn. In 1992, FMC introduced the Custom Delivery System (CDS) which allows closed system application of Furadan 4F Insecticide/Nematicide to corn. More recently, a Closed Injection System (CIS) has been developed which utilize injection metering of Furadan 4F and disulfoton into existing in-furrow spray systems. The system allows for simultaneous application of products that provides for early season insect control, seedling protection for Command Herbicide and positive cotton plant effects while reducing container disposal and the potential of worker exposure.
