Dual II Magnum herbicide label expanded for management of weeds on celery, Asian radish, eggplant and parsnips in Canada

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of several URMULE registrations for Dual II Magnum herbicide for management of weeds on celery, Asian radish (daikon, lo bok, mooli), parsnips and eggplant transplants in Canada. Dual II Magnum herbicide was already labeled for use on a wide range of crops for weed control in Canada.
    

The minor use project for celery was originally submitted by Ontario in 2010 and completed by AAFC-PMC. The minor use project for eggplant was sponsored by Ontario in 2014 and the projects for parsnip and Asian radish were sponsored by AAFC-PMC in 2012 all 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 consult the complete label before using Dual II Magnum herbicide.
    

Dual II Magnum herbicide is toxic to aquatic organisms. Do not apply this product or allow drift to other crops or non-target areas. Do not contaminate off-target areas or aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the Dual II Magnum  label carefully.
    

For a copy of the new minor use label contact your local crop specialist, regional supply outlet or visit the PMRA label site www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pest/registrant-titulaire/tools-outils/label-eti...
