The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of minor use label expansion registrations for Venture L herbicide for control of labeled weeds on rhubarb, the bulb onion subgroup 3-07A, green onions, caneberries subgroup 13-07A and lettuce in Canada. Venture L herbicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several weeds.

 

These minor use projects were submitted by Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada, Pest Management Centre (AAFC-PMC) 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 weed management decisions within a robust integrated weed management program and should consult the complete label before using Venture L herbicide.
