A wealth of specialist crops for classic herbicide

OnionsVegetable, allium and nursery crop growers have been plagued in the last few years by the loss of crop protection actives, either as more products are revoked or go through re-registration and lose crops. But one manufacturer has been busy adding to their recommendations and supporting and encouraging Extension of Authorisation for Minor Uses (EAMU’s) for their chemistry. “We get a lot of queries from growers on our Hotline about what they can use on their vegetables and onion crops.
