new T&V crops added to Rely (and other glufosinate products)

Good news for POST weed control in several tree crops. 

With a recent label change, Rely 280 is now registered for use on citrus, stone fruits, pome fruit and olives. 

This is also true for all the currently registered glufosinate herbicides which brings conformity among the products with that active ingredient (there was some oddities for a while in that the newer products has slightly broader registrations than the original product their labels were built upon).

 

Currently registered tree and vine crops include:

Bushberries: blueberry, currant, elderberry, gooseberry, and huckleberry

Other Berries: Lingonberry, juneberry, and Salal

Citrus: lemon, orange, grapefruit, lime, mandarin, tangerine, tangelo, calamondin, kumquat, pummelo, citron, citrus hybrids, Tangor, and cultivars, varieties and/or hybrids of these
