FMC Corporation takes LCOs through the new label language adopted by the EPA.

| August 29, 2012

PHILADELPHIA, August 2012 – Two new videos from FMC Corporation take lawn care professionals step-by-step through the new label language adopted by the EPA for non-crop outdoor use of all pyrethroid insecticide products. The videos each focus on a different type of product: liquid pyrethroids or granular pyrethroids.

Each running three to four minutes, the new FMC videos clearly demonstrate how and where to use pyrethroid products in common outdoor situations.

“Since the new EPA label language can be confusing, we wanted to make sure lawn care professionals know how to follow it,” said Adam Manwarren, turf product manager for FMC Professional Solutions. “Our videos spell out both mandatory and advisory language for outdoor pyrethroid pesticide use, as well as demonstrate typical applications.”

By adopting the new label language, the EPA hopes to lessen the potential for insecticide drift and run-off, and call attention to environmental stewardship of pyrethroid products. Accordingly, FMC has submitted revised labels for its pyrethroid products.
