The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Prowl® H2O Herbicide for control of labeled weeds on garlic and dry bulb shallots in Canada and on transplanted leeks grown on muck soil in eastern Canada and British Columbia. Prowl® H2O 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 (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 Prowl® H2O Herbicide.

For shallots, the interval between the two applications must be at least 2-6 true-leaf stage. Maximum 1 application per year for garlic. For garlic, apply after the crop has emerged, up to the 4 true-leaf stage.||45|
|Shallots and garlic, mineral soil, WESTERN Canada||Labeled weeds||2.42||One application per year for shallots and garlic. For shallots, apply at the loop to 2 true-leaf stage. For garlic, apply after the crop has emerged, up to the 4 true-leaf stage.||45|
