The article notes on the cessation of the manufacturing of Temik insecticide in 2014 that is widely used by most cotton and peanut farmers in Texas. It reports that Temik insecticide, manufactured by Bayer CropScience Ltd., will be removed from the agriculture market which leaves most farmers concerned over the control of nematodes in their farms. Terry Wheeler of the Texas AgriLife research claims that nematode control will be reduced by half if Temik is removed.
