Josh Mosiondz, minor use co-ordinator with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), has announced six new pesticide label expansions recently approved by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).

  • Eragon LQ herbicide has been registered for control or suppression of labelled weeds in raspberry and blackberry in Eastern Canada and British Columbia (excluding the Peace River Region). Eragon LQ was already labelled for management of weeds on a wide range of crops in Canada. These minor use proposals were submitted by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Pest Management Centre (AAFC-PMC) as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.
  • Kanemite miticide has been approved for control of two-spotted spider mites on Crop Subgroup 13-07B (Bushberries). Kanemite was already labeled for management of insects on a wide range of crops in Canada. This minor use proposal was submitted by the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Fisheries.
