– The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval
of a minor use label expansion for RIMON 10EC Insecticide for control of
European corn borer on field peppers.

RIMON 10EC (novaluron) was
already labeled for management of several insect pests on apples and potatoes
in Canada.

The new registration will
provide field pepper growers with a pest management tool to manage one of their
most difficult insect problems.

The following is provided
as a general outline only. Users should consult the complete label before using
Rimon 10EC insecticide.       

Field peppers: Rimon
insecticide can be applied as a foliar spray at 410-820 mL per hectare for
control of corn borer. Apply in 280-520 litres of water per ha and do not apply
more than three applications per season. Do not apply within one day of
harvest. For corn borer, the first application should be made just prior to egg
hatch. Field monitoring for these pest stages is vital to achieve effective
control. Use higher rates and spray volumes for high pest pressures or when
foliage canopy is dense. Re-application on a seven to 10 day interval may be
required to protect new growth or when monitoring indicates a need.

Rimon insecticide should
be used in an integrated pest management program and in rotation with other
management strategies. Follow all other precautions and directions for use on
the Rimon insecticide label.

Minor use label expansions
were also recently approved for RIMON 10EC insecticide for control of cabbage
looper, imported cabbage worm and diamondback moth on Brassica vegetables; for
control of European corn borer, fall armyworm and true armyworm on snap beans;
for control of tarnished plant bug nymphs (TPB) on strawberries; and for
control of several pests on stone fruit.
