Intrepid® 2F Section 18 is Approved for Armyworm Control


The Intrepid® 2F Section 18 is approved for use again in 2021. Section 18 labels are available through the county agricultural commissioner offices when you add Intrepid® 2F to your pesticide permit. 

All Section 18 emergency exemptions are treated as restricted materials and product specific (Intrepid® 2F). The Section 18 process allows unregistered use of the pesticide to meet an emergency need. Therefore, the Section 18 is specific to Intrepid® 2F until the registration is complete and methoxyfenozide labels are amended to include rice. 

For more information, contact the CRC’s Industry Affairs Manager Roberta Firoved at or (916) 206-5039.

Intrepid® 2F Armyworm Label Update

You must have the Intrepid® 2F supplemental label in hand as if it were on the container. Intrepid® 2F is the only product with the active ingredient methoxyfenozide registered for use to control armyworm on rice. The registration was complete earlier this year, which left the registrant (Corteva Agriscience) no time to include rice on the label. Corteva Agriscience has made the supplemental label available on the CDMS and Agrian websites. For permitting and label questions, please contact your local agricultural commissioner’s office.
