Protecting Stored Corn

Corn-Denting (3)Below is an excerpt from the 2020 UGA Corn Production Guide (page 79):  The key to storing grains and other commodities on the farm is to make storage conditions unfavorable for the survival of stored grain insects and molds.  Growers who will be storing for more than 6 months should strongly consider application of a grain protectant. Apply an approved grain protectant directly to the moving grain stream at the bottom of the bucket elevator or auger so the material has an opportunity to contact as many kernels as possible as the grain is moved. 

Insecticides labelled for empty bin treatments

  • Beta-cyfluthrin Tempo SC Ultra 0.25-0.5 fl oz/gal/1000 sq ft 3A Apply to all interior surfaces of storage bin and allow to dry before filling bins.
  • Deltamethrin Centynal EC 0.25-1.5 fl oz/gal/1000 sq ft 3A Apply to wall and floor surfaces of grain bins and warehouses prior to storing or handling grain.
  • Deltamethrin D-Fense SC 0.25-1.5 fl oz/gal/1000 sq ft 3A Use for exterior perimeter treatment only.
  • Deltamethrin Suspend SC 0.25-1.5 floz/gal/1000 sq ft 3A Apply finished spray to equipment, wall and floor surfaces of grain bins and warehouses prior to storing or handling grain.
  • Diatomaceous earth Insecto Dust: 1 lb/1000 sq ft Apply at least 2-3 days before filling bin. Use aeration fan or other air supply to apply dust.
  • Diatomaceous earth Dryacide 100 Dust: 1-3 lb/1000 sq ft Slurry: 1.5 lb/1.5 gal/100 sq ft Apply as a dust with a hand or power duster or as a slurry spray.
  • Diatomaceous earth Protect-It Dust: 0.6 lb/1000 sq ft Slurry: 1.5 lb/1.5 gal/100 sq ft Apply 2 weeks before filling bins. Use a dust blower or bin fan to reach all surfaces, cracks and crevices. Apply slurry as a fine mist.
  • Deltamethrin + chlorpyrifos methyl Storcide II 1.8 fl oz/gal/1000 sq ft 1B+3A Application can only be made from outside the bin using automated spray equipment.
  • Pyriproxyfen Nyguard IGR Concentrate 0.8-2.4 tsp/gal/1500 sq ft 4-12 ml/gal/1500 sq ft 7C This product will not kill adults but will control immatures. May be mixed with an adulticide.
  • S-methoprene Diacon-D IGR 1.5 oz/1000 sq ft 7A This product will not kill adults, but will control immatures; applicators must wear a dust mask and protective gloves.
  • S-methoprene Diacon IGR Fogging Treatment: 1 ml/1000 sq ft (0.2 tsp/1000 sq ft) Pressure Spray: 2 ml/1000 sq ft (0.4 tsp/1000 sq ft) 7A Apply fogging treatment in water or oil in a cold aerosol generator. Diacon IGR is an insect- growth regulator that interferes with the development of insects. It will not kill adult insects. Apply as a pressure spray in low-pressure sprayer to all areas that may harbor insect pests.

 Insecticides labelled for direct application to grain as a grain protectant

  • Pirimiphos-methyl Actellic 5E 8.6-11.5 fl oz (corn) 8.6-11.5 fl oz (grain sorghum) 1B Labeled for use on shelled corn, popcorn and grain sorghum only. DO NOT use if grain has been previously treated with Actellic or if Actellic will be used as a topdress treatment.
  • Deltamethrin Centynal EC 8.5 fl oz (corn) 9.1 fl oz (wheat) 4.9 fl oz (oats) 8.5 fl oz (grain sorghum) 8.5 fl oz (rye) 3A Labeled for use on barley, corn, oats, popcorn, rice rye, grain sorghum, and wheat.
  • Deltamethrin D-Fense SC 8.5 fl oz (corn) 9.1 fl oz (wheat) 8.5 fl oz (oats) 8.5 fl oz (grain sorghum) 8.5 fl oz (rye) 3A Labeled for use on barley, corn, oats, popcorn, rice, rye, grain sorghum, and wheat.

Will not control weevils. Diacon IGR is an insectgrowth regulator that interferes with the development of insects; it will not kill adult insects. Treat existing insect populations with an adulticide before or at the same time as applying Diacon IGR. Apply only once to grain of known treatment history. Use highest rates for maximum residual. Lowest rate provides shorter residual.
  • S-methoprene Diacon-D IGR 8-10 lb 7A Labeled for use on cereal grains, corn, sunflower, canola, legumes, popcorn, wheat, spices, grain sorghum, rice, cocoa, peanuts, oats and millet. Will not control weevils. Diacon-D IGR is an insect-growth regulator that interferes with the development of insects. It will not kill adult insects. Treat existing insect populations with adulticide before or at the same time as applying Diacon-D IGR. Apply only once to grain of known treatment history
  • Deltamethrin + s-methoprene Diacon IGR PLUS 9-18 fl oz (corn) 9.6-19.2 fl oz (wheat) 5.2-10.3 fl oz (oats) 8-16 fl oz (grain sorghum) 9-18 fl oz (rye) 3A+7A Labeled for use on barley, corn, oats, popcorn, rice, rye, sorghum and wheat.
  • Diatomaceous earth Dryacide 100 1-2 lb/ton Thoroughly mix with grain. For use on grains, soybeans, peanuts, popcorn, and others (see label). Diatomaceous earth products are less effective when used on grain with increased moisture content and under humid conditions; diatomaceous earth is known to decrease test weight and grain flowability.
  • Diatomaceous earth Insecto 1 lb/ton 1-2 lb/ton (if infested) Apply uniformly as a dust on grains, soybeans, peanuts, popcorn, and others (see label). See note above.
  • Diatomaceous earth Protect-It 18 lb (wheat, beans, peas) 9.6 lb (oats) 16.8 lb (rye) Uniformly treat grain as it is loaded into bin. For use on grains, soybeans, peanuts, popcorn, and others (see label). See note above.
