I found out today that I previously misread the label of a new herbicide registered in several California orchard crops.
Broadworks Herbicide (from Syngenta) was registered in fall 2015 on several citrus, stone fruit, and tree nut crops (but not every crop in those groups).
I'm not entirely sure if I misread the label or if I simply made a typo when I last updated the T&V Herbicide Registration chart (which is totally possible after you've read several dozens of labels). At any rate, I erroneously listed mesotrione as registered on peach in my November update of that chart; however, Broadworks is not actually currently registered on that crop.
My apologies for any confusion this may have caused.
Here are the crops Broadworks is registered on as well as a current label.
- Citrus fruit (citrus hybrids, grapefruit, lemon, lime, sour orange, tangelo, tangerine (Manderin), cultivars, varieties, and/or hybrids of these)
- Stone fruit (nectarine, plum, cultivars, varieties, and/or hybrids of these)
- Tree nuts (almond, hazelnut (filbert), pecan, pistachio, black walnut, English walnut, cultivars, varieties, and/or hybrids of these).
I made an editor's correction to a previous post on this blog about mesotrione herbicide and have attached an updated version of that T&V herbicide registration chart below as well as at its semi-permanent address at the Weed Research and Information Center (click HERE for a direct URL to the chart at WRIC)
Please remember to refer to a current label before applying any pesticide as labels to change (and can be misread or misunderstood on occasion).
