The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Aim® Herbicide for control of labelled weeds on mint 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 Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada, Pest Management Centre (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 Aim® Herbicide.
