Aim herbicide label expanded for tree nuts

The Aim herbicide label has been expanded for control of weeds and suckers on tree nuts in Canada. 


Jim Chaput, OMAFRA minor use coordinator, writes that the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has approved a label expansion registration for this crop group 14-11 in Canada. Aim herbicide was already labeled for use on several crops in Canada for control of weeds.


This minor use project was submitted by Ontario in collaboration with the Southern Ontario Nut Growers 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 Aim herbicide.












Aim herbicide is toxic to aquatic organisms and non-target terrestrial plants.  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, restrictions and directions for use on the Aim herbicide 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.
