Pardner Herbicide label expanded via Minor Use Program for management of weeds in carrots grown on muck soil in Canada

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of an URMULE registration for Pardner Herbicide for management of weeds on carrots grown on muck soils in Canada. Pardner Herbicide was already labeled for use on a wide range of crops for weed control in Canada. 

This minor use project for carrots was sponsored by Quebec Horticultural Council in 2013 as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel. 

The following is provided as an abbreviated, general outline only. Users should consult the complete label before using Pardner Herbicide.

Crop Target Rate (L/ha) Applications
Carrots grown on muck soil Labeled weeds 1.0 - 1.2 1 (One) - apply 3 - 4 prior to crop emergence. 45 days pre-harvest interval.

Pardner Herbicide is toxic to aquatic organisms and non-target terrestrial plants. Do not apply this product or allow drift to other crops or non-target areas. Do not contaminate off-target areas or aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. 

Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the Pardner label carefully.
