New labels for Dual Magnum herbicide in NH

by Rich Bonanno, UMass Extension

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.

To obtain this label, log on to www.farmassist.com

If you are new to this site, you can create a username and password. It’s free.

On the main page under products (top far left) select “Indemnified labels”.

On the next page select “New Hampshire” and “Dual Magnum”

You can then select the crop you want but first you must agree to the indemnification which protects the company from liability if you injure your crop. Once you click “I agree” to the indemnification, the label will appear with all the directions which you can print out.

The following crops are covered and noted on the label as below:

FOR CONTROL OF GALINSOGA AND YELLOW NUTSEDGE IN ASPARAGUS, TRANSPLANTED BELL PEPPER, CABBAGE, CARROTS, GARDEN BEETS, DRY BULB AND GREEN ONIONS, SPINACH, SWISS CHARD, PUMPKINS, CANEBERRY CROP SUBGROUP 13A (BLACKBERRY,RED RASPBERRY, AND BLACK RASPBERRY), BROCCOLI (DIRECT SEEDED AND TRANSPLANTED), MELON CROP SUBGROUP 9A (CANTALOUPE, MUSKMELON AND WATERMELON), CUCUMBER, GARLIC, HIGHBUSH BLUEBERRY, AND LEAFY BRASSICA GREENS CROP SUBGROUP 5B (BROCCOLI RAAB; CABBAGE, CHINESE (BOK CHOY); COLLARDS; KALE; MIZUNA; MUSTARD GREENS; MUSTARD SPINACH; RAPE GREENS)
