Proclaim: A New Insecticide for Use on Cotton

Denis M. Dunbar, Robert D. Brown, Jack A. Norton, Richard A Dybas


PROCLAIM (Emamectin Benzoate) is a second generation avermectin insecticide for crop protection being developed by Merck & Co., Inc. It is a broad spectrum lepidoptericide with good activity against beet armyworm, loopers, cotton bollworm, tobacco budworm and others. Emamectin benzoate is active at very low rates in the range os 0.0075 - 0.015 lb ai/acre (3.4 - 6.8 gr ai/acre). Because of its low impact on beneficial arthropods, PROCLAIM is also an excellent insecticide for incorporation into integrated pest management programs.
