Vegetable herbicide registrations

By Barry Tickes, UA Area Agriculture Agent

Few new herbicides have been registered for use on vegetables over the past 25 years. The increasing costs of pesticide development and registration combined with the high liability and relatively limited acreage of specialty vegetables are the major causes.

Efforts have instead been directed at finding new uses, application techniques, and formulations of older products.
