Two new insecticides from Valent recently received federal labels for use in rice.  The state approval is still pending, but expected soon.  The insecticides are Belay and Nipsit INSIDE.  Both of these insecticides have the same active ingedient, clothianidin.

Belay is formulated as a foliar spray to control several insect pests.  The most important of these for Mississippi are rice water weevils and rice stink bugs.  Belay represents a new class of insecticide (neonicotinoid) for rice stink bug control.

Nipsit INSIDE is formulated as a seed treatment and is also labeled for several insect species.  The most important of these insects is the rice water weevil.

We have tested both of these insecticides over the last few years.In our tests, both Belay and Nipsit INSIDE have been comparable to other labeled insecticides available for growers.  Both of these insecticides will provide another much needed tool for rice producers in the Mid South.  There are a few minor restrictions for their use, so be sure to check the label before using either one of these insecticides.  feel free to call me anytime if you have any questions about either one of these insecticides.
