The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Rimon insecticide for the control of tarnished plant bug nymphs on celeriac, greenhouse and outdoor ornamentals, reduction in damage from carrot weevil on parsnip and celeriac and suppression of whiteflies on greenhouse and outdoor ornamentals in Canada. Rimon insecticide was already labeled for use against a number of pests on a variety of crops in Canada.

 

These minor use projects were submitted by Quebec and Flowers Canada 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 be making pest management decisions within a robust integrated pest management program and should consult the complete label before using Rimon insecticide.

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, restrictions and directions for use on the Rimon® Insecticide label carefully.
