The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of minor use label expansion registrations for Beleaf insecticide for the suppression of tarnished plant bug (TPB) on leafy greens, crop subgroup 4-13A and leaf petiole vegetables, crop subgroup 22B and an increased rate for aphids on stone fruit, crop group 12-09 in Canada. Beleaf insecticide was already labeled for use against insects on many crops in Canada.
These minor use proposals were submitted by Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada, Pest Management Centre 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 Beleaf insecticide.
Beleaf insecticide is toxic to certain beneficial insects and non-target terrestrial plants. 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 Beleaf insecticide label carefully.
For a copy of the new minor use label contact your local crop specialist, regional supply outlet or visit the PMRA label site.
