Pasture insecticide

Pasture insecticide

THE EPA has approved FMC Corporation's Mustang Max insecticide for use on pasture and range grasses for treatment of insect pests. The insecticide is the first pyrethroid federally registered for insect control in pasture and rangeland.

A key benefit of Mustang Max is a zero day postharvest interval so livestock producers may manage herds more easily through rotational grazing, according to FMC. The insecticide is labeled for control of both true and fall armyworms and grasshoppers in mixed and solid grass pastures as well as alfalfa, wheat, corn, soybeans and other crops. It tank mixes with postemergence herbicides, plant nutrients and fungicides.
