The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for SuffOil-X® spray oil emulsion for management of aphids, spider mites, and powdery mildew on various vegetable crops and crop groups in Canada. SuffOil-X® spray oil emulsion was already labeled for management of insects and diseases on a wide range of crops in Canada. These minor use proposals were submitted by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs 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 insect and disease management decisions within a robust integrated insect and disease management programs and should consult the complete label before using SuffOil-X® spray oil emulsion.

|13||Begin applications when pests appear. Apply at 7-14- day intervals. Do not apply more than 8 applications per year.|
TOXIC to aquatic organisms. Observe BUFFER ZONES specified under DIRECTIONS FOR USE. To reduce runoff from treated areas into aquatic habitats avoid application to areas with a moderate to steep slope, compacted soil, or clay. Avoid application when heavy rain is forecast. Contamination of aquatic areas as a result of runoff may be reduced by including a vegetative filter strip between the treated area and the edge of the water body.
Follow all other precautions, restrictions, and directions for use on the SuffOil-X® spray oil emulsion label carefully.
