Myth Busting Time!
Are all of the herbicides labelled for raspberries also legal to use on blackberries?
No. Blackberries are not always on the same herbicide label as raspberries. Please be careful when choosing herbicide options for use on blackberries. Only the products registered specifically for blackberries or registered for the caneberry crop group can be used on blackberries.
In order to reduce the confusion, a new “Blackberry” section has been proposed for the next edition of Publication #75 Guide to Weed Control 2016-2017. Please see the blackberry section below for labelled herbicides available to you this season!
