Gesagard 480SC® Herbicide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several weeds.
This minor use project was submitted by the national minor use program at Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada, Pest Management Centre as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.
