The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently approved a minor use label expansion registration for Kanemite miticide for control of two-spotted spider mites on Crop Subgroup 13-07B (Bushberries). Kanemite miticide was already labeled for management of insects on a wide range of crops in Canada. This minor use proposal was submitted by the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Fisheries 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 insect management decisions within a robust integrated insect management program and should consult the complete label before using Kanemite miticide.
For Ontario growers, a copy of the new minor use label can be obtained from Erica Pate, berry crops specialist OMAFRA, Simcoe (519) 410-0624, your regional supply outlet, or visit the PMRA label site http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pest/registrant-titulaire/tools-outils/label-etiq-eng.php
