Lorox DF Special Local Need label approved for Wisconsin carrot production: The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has approved a Special Local Need (24c) label for Wisconsin carrot production. This label is similar to the one that expired at the end of 2019 and is specific to Wisconsin carrots only. The label outlines allowable uses of Lorox DF based on soil texture, organic matter, depth to groundwater and proximity to wells. The new Special Local Need label expires on 12/31/2024.

The label is included below and is posted on the DATCP special pesticide registrations web site: https://datcp.wi.gov/Documents/SpecialUses.pdf. Many thanks to DATCP and TKI NovaSource for supporting this request.
