The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of minor use label expansion registrations for EntrustTM and SuccessTM insecticides for control of cabbage maggot on Brassica leafy greens crop subgroup 4-13B and Brassica head and stem vegetables, crop group 5-13 in Canada. Entrust and Success insecticides were already labeled for use on a wide variety of crops in Canada for control of several insects.
These minor use projects were submitted by Quebec as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.

*Brassica leafy greens includes: arugula, Chinese broccoli, bok choy, collards, cress, kale, mizuna, mustard greens, turnip greens
