New herbicide registered for strawberries through Minor Use Program.
J. Chaput, OMAFRA, Minor Use Coordinator, Guelph
The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of minor use label expansion registrations for Reflex® Herbicide for control of labeled weeds on dry peas, succulent and edible podded peas and perennial strawberries in Canada. Reflex® Herbicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several weeds.
These minor use projects were submitted by AAFC-PMC 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 weed management decisions within a robust integrated weed management program and should consult the complete label before using Reflex® Herbicide.
The use of Reflex® Herbicide may result in it leaching to groundwater, particularly in areas where soils are permeable (sandy soil) and/or the depth to the water table is shallow. Do not apply Reflex® Herbicide to any field more often than once every two years. Do not rotate to another crop in the same season. Do not contaminate aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers.
Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the Reflex® Herbicide label carefully.
