Aramo given SOLA for use on salad onion crops for the control of grass weeds

Growers can now use the herbicide Aramo on salad onion crops for the control of grass weeds, including annual meadow grass, due to the issue of a new SOLA, 1146/2010.

The Chemicals Regulation Directorate has also confirmed that the dimethoate-based product Dandim, marketed by Headland Agrochemicals, is being taken off the shelves.

The product's removal follows the lowering of its maximum residue levels (MRLs) by the European Commission - a move that is also seeing the removal of BASF's Dimethoate 40 (MAFF 00199) and Dimethoate 40 (MAPP 13949) (Grower, 9 April).

The new MRLs come into force from 7 June but the use of these products on the crops is being suspended from today (16 April) to ensure that treated produce has made its way through the supply chain.
