Dual Magnum has been registered for control of both galinsoga and yellow nutsedge in several vegetable and some small fruit crops. Control with Dual Magnum is good to excellent on these weeds when used according to label directions. The Dual labels for vegetables are currently listed in the New England Vegetable Management Guide (2014-2015). Several uses are for all 6 New England states but some are listed as Massachusetts only. The uses currently labeled for “Massachusetts only” can now be used in New Hampshire as well.
However, for these specific labels, no rates or other specifics are given. This is because growers must apply for these labels using a web site set up by the manufacturer. Once the procedures are followed as outlined below, growers can print the labels with specific use directions and begin to use Dual Magnum as needed for control of all listed weeds on the label.
