A number of corn herbicides have label precautions about use of an organo-phosphate insecticide at planting due to potential crop injury. This includes the insecticides Counter (terbufos), Lorsban (chlorpyrifos), and Fortress (chlorethoxyfos). The herbicides include both soil-applied and postemergence herbicides. Some of the common products include Callisto (Halex GT); Resolve (Steadfast, Basis); Accent; or Capreno. Many of the Group 2 (or ALS-inhibiting herbicides) have these precautions. The list of herbicides can be found at http://extension.udel.edu/ag/files/2012/08/CornWeedguide.pdf and go to Table 19.
Unfortunately, most corn seed companies no longer designate hybrids as either IT or IR. So if you are not sure, take the cautious approach and assume the hybrid is a “standard” hybrid (no enhanced tolerance for imidazolinone herbicides); and follow the most restrictive guidelines.
