Delegate™ Insecticide label expanded via Minor Use Program for control of additional insects on apples and snap beans and reduced PHI for spotted wing drosophila on cherries, apricots and plums in Canada

J. Chaput, OMAFRA, Minor Use Coordinator, Guelph

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of URMULE registrations for Delegate™ Insecticide for control of European apple sawfly on apples, European corn borer on snap beans and a reduced PHI use pattern for cherries, plums and apricots for spotted wing drosophila management in Canada. Delegate™ Insecticide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of insects.

These various minor use projects were submitted by New Brunswick, Ontario and British Columbia between 2014 and 2015 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 pest management decisions within a robust IPM program and should consult the complete label before using Delegate™ Insecticide.
