Prior to Harvest

Treating Empty Bins and Cleaning Agriculture Equipment
Begin by cleaning empty bins and agriculture equipment thoroughly to ensure that the storage facility is free of trace grains from previous storage. Clean harvest equipment, augers and belts to eliminate potential pest infestation from old insect infested grain. Next, treat bins and equipment with a tank-mix combination of Diacon® IGR and Centynal EC Insecticide or Diacon® IGR PLUS by itself. Using a low-pressure sprayer, apply your formula of choice as a surface, spot and crack-and-crevice treatment both inside and outside of bins.
