On February 6, the Environmental Protection Agency granted a specific exemption under the provisions of Section 18 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, as amended, to the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) for the use of imidacloprid, formulated as Gaucho 480 Flowable, on soybean seed to control bean leaf beetles and soybean aphids in Iowa. The exemption is for 455,000 seed units and will allow seed for seed production, food production, and commercial "field" beans to be treated with Gaucho.
