Westbridge Agricultural Products announced May 5, 2020 that the Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has approved the registration of BioLink Herbicide EC for use in Canada. BioLink Herbicide is a highly effective tool for both organic and conventional growers. It is registered as a broad spectrum contact herbicide for post-emergent, non-selective weed control for use in and around all food and non-food crops. Westbridge’s patented and proprietary formulation is an emulsifiable concentrate that has been approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in certified organic food production.
With over 9 years of grower-proven efficacy and university testing, BioLink Herbicide consistently provides fast and effective burndown on a wide variety of annual and perennial weeds and grasses. The active ingredients in BioLink Herbicide are naturally-occurring fatty acids which disrupt the plant’s waxy cuticle and cell walls, causing weeds to dehydrate and die. The product is not volatile so vapor damage will not occur to non-target plantings.
BioLink Herbicide can also be a beneficial tank-mix partner to enhance conventional herbicide efficacy, and it is an excellent IPM tool to rotate with conventional herbicides to minimize resistance. It is low foaming, easy-to-use, and has no pre-harvest interval so it can be applied up to day of harvest. The product is safe for pollinators and beneficial insects.
