On June 12, the EPA granted an exemption for the use of flupyradifurone (Sivanto Prime) insecticide for use on Alabama sweet sorghum for the 2017 growing season, under the provisions of Section 18 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act. This will provide sweet sorghum producers with a much needed tool to control sugarcane aphid, Melanaphis sacchari. Growers need to study the full Sivanto label, the Section 18 label, and the EPA authorization letter to make sure they are using the product correctly. The exemption expires on November 15, 2017.
