    Resistance Management:


    Lorsban NT contains a Group 1B (organophosphate) insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Lorsban NT and other Group 1B insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides is used repeatedly in the same fields.

    Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to the site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist.

    Appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed
