The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of an URMULE registration for Princep Nine-T herbicide for control of weeds on tree nuts (crop group 14-11) in Canada. Princep Nine-T herbicide was already labeled for use on hazelnuts, some tree fruits, berries, asparagus, ornamentals and corn in Canada.
The minor use project for tree nuts was submitted by OMAFRA in 2012 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 Princep Nine-T herbicide.
Princep Nine-T herbicide is toxic to birds, small wild animals, aquatic organisms and non-target terrestrial plants. Do not contaminate off-target areas or aquatic habitats with Princep Nine-T herbicide when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. The use of this chemical may result in contamination of groundwater particularly in areas where soils are permeable (e.g. sandy soil) and/or the depth to the water table is shallow.
Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the Princep Nine-T herbicide label carefully.
