Description
Summary:To assess technical variability in actual dosages, the application rates of neonicotinoid insecticide active ingredients in seed coatings were determined and compared for commercial seeds of different maize varieties. Theeffect oflong storage and coating by unique equipment were assessed. Application rates in different pesticide treatment modes (seed coating, spray or soil granule applications) were also compared. Results indicate that the three technologies utilize similar amounts of the active ingredients per hectare.
