Reduced supplies of linuron expected for 2022

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) communicated on December 24, 2021 that a path forward has been reached with the manufacturer of Lorox L (linuron). This will allow the distribution of the crop protection product for 2022.


“This is not a temporary solution but full approval of this product for distribution,” says Chris Duyvelshoff, crop protection advisor, Ontario Fruit & Vegetable Growers’ Association. “At this point TKI/NovaSource is confident that a portion of the normal supply will be available, but they do not know yet exactly what it will be. The only certainty is that it will be less than 100 per cent of the volumes used in past years.”


The company will know more in two to four weeks. Some of the product may be available in 10 L containers, while the remainder may be in bulk totes.


“This is only expected to be a 2022 issue with normal supply anticipated in 2023 – aside from the impacts of any other global supply chain problems happening right now,” says Duyvelshoff.
