Pesticide use registrations and label changes from the Minor Use Program

By: Danielle Stephens, P.Ag., M.Sc.; Integrated Pest Management Agrologist and Provincial Minor Use Coordinator (PMUC)

Fruit crops are a sector of agriculture that is highly engaged in the Minor Use Pesticide Program and User Requested Minor Use Label Expansion (URMULE) program. Both of these programs are designed to assist in registrations for minor uses of pesticides and/or for minor grown crops in Canada. Since there are quite a few changes that occur through these programs, here is a quick summary of product label changes that have occurred over the last year. This does not include new registrations that have been made through the companies themselves, and therefore this should not be treated as a comprehensive list of registrations.

*Note: It is important to read the labels in full before making a purchase decision. The sections with changes made through the minor use process will often (but not always) be in a separate part of the label. Labels will include warnings if there is a lack of information on performance between different varieties. Labels will also include any restrictions of other products due to the use of the product in question, or restrictions in future uses of the product.
