After Lorsban application, farmers must wait
By Alberta Canola Producers Commission
Aug. 24, 2012, Edmonton, AB - The Alberta Canola Producers Commission has issued the following canola watch alert:
Growers who are using Lorsban or the generics Citadel, Pyrinex and Nufos to control insects are advised to observe the pre-harvest interval (PHI) for this product. The PHI for this product is a minimum of 21 days before direct combining or 21 days before swathing.
Our canola industry relies on exports, and countries that we export to have strict regulations on the types of trace residues they allow in canola. These residues are detectable and could be traced back to individual farms in parts per billion. That amounts to nine seeds in a super-B. Please protect the quality of your load and our canola exports by always following PHIs.
