The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Chateau herbicide for control of labeled weeds on garlic in Canada. Chateau herbicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several weeds.
This minor use project was submitted by the national minor use program at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Pest Management Centre as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.
The following is 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 Chateau herbicide.
Chateau herbicide is toxic to aquatic organisms, small wild animals, certain beneficial insects and non-target terrestrial plants. Do not apply this produce 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.
There are significant precautions and detailed directions for use on the Chateau herbicide label; follow these carefully.
