Florida registers Paladin fumigants

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has registered the fumigant  Paladin from United Phosphorus Inc. of King of Prussia, Pa.

In addition, FDACS registered Paladin EC, a fumigant applied through drip irrigation systems.

Both contain the active ingredient dimenthyl disulfide, and both are restricted-use pesticides that can only be applied by a certified applicator, according to the product labels.

The fumigants must be used with an approved VIF, or virtually impermeable film.

UPI recommends using Paladin with chloropicrin at a ratio of 79:21 by weight. The company also recommends use of a pre-plant herbicide to increase the control of small-seeded broadleaves and grasses.
