For the 2020 growing season, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) has a list of pesticides registered for commercial hemp in the following link: Pesticide Products Registered for Industrial Hemp in Kentucky. This link should be checked periodically as new products are being registered by the KDA.
This article is an expanded version of the list published by the KDA that includes handy additional information, including commercial name, manufacturer, compounds, target pests and estimated prices (obtained from Internet vendors; sale prices can change depending of vendors and locations) for the pesticides.
We are providing the following tables:
- Table 1. 2020: INSECTICIDES REGISTERED FOR HEMP IN KY
- Table 2. 2020: MITICIDES REGISTERED FOR HEMP IN KY
- Table 3. 2020: MULTIPURPOSE PRODUCTS (INSECTICIDES, MITICIDES AND FUNGICIDES) REGISTERED FOR HEMP IN KY
The use of commercial or corporation names in this publication is for the information and convenience of hemp producers in Kentucky. Their use here does not constitute an official endorsement or approval by the authors of this publication or the University of Kentucky. We have not tested these materials on hemp, so the effectiveness of these materials has not been evaluated.
