Goodbye Endosulfan

​Growers should remember as of July 31, 2015, it is illegal to use endosulfan on any crop other than pineapple or strawberry. By July 31, 2016, all use of this product will be cancelled. Endosulfan in an organochlorine insecticide, the same class as DDT, and was first produced in the US in 1954. It has been a very effective insecticide for over 60 years, but is quite toxic to humans, so it has outlived its usefulness. Fortunately, we have a variety of newer, safer products available today.
