J. Chaput, OMAFRA, Minor Use Coordinator, Guelph

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Alion Herbicide for control of labeled weeds on crop subgroup 13-07B, bushberries (except lowbush blueberries); crop subgroup 13-07A, caneberries and hops in Canada. Alion 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 Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada, Pest Management Centre (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 Alion Herbicide.
