Emergency Use Registrations granted to Cimegra and Success in some provinces

May 28, 2024  By Fruit and Vegetable


Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has approved Emergency Use Registrations (EUR) for Cimegra and Success insecticides for management of cabbage maggot on rutabaga.

The registration applies only to Ontario, B.C., Alberta, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, P.E.I. and Newfoundland and Labrador, from May 21, 2024 until May 20, 2025 (Cimegra) and from May 17, 2024 to May 16, 2025 (Success).

Plans are underway to submit provincial User Requested Minor Use Label Expansion (URMULE) requests with the hope for full registration in future field seasons. These EUR requests were initiated by participating provinces in response to the loss of chlorpyrifos applications in Canada following RVD2020-14 and the subsequent re-evaluation note REV2021-04 which created a lack of sufficient registered protective products to allow for effective protection from cabbage maggot on several crops in Canada, including rutabaga.

This EUR was led by Quebec in conjunction with other participating province’s provincial Ministries of Agriculture and their local growers’ associations.

The information listed here is provided as an abbreviated, general outline only. Users should be making insect management decisions within a robust integrated insect management program and should consult the complete emergency use label before using Cimegra and Success insecticides.
