The Environmental Protection Agency has registered Pruvin herbicide from Raleigh, N.C.-based MANA Crop Protection for use against broadleaf weeds and grasses in trees, nuts and vines.

The product, which contains the active ingredient rimsulfuron, controls barnyard grass, pigweed, morningglory, fleabane, marestail and mallow, to name a few, according to a news release.


It can be applied to established permanent crops or used as a pre-emergent, post-emergent or split application in tomatoes and potatoes.


The dry-flowable formulation comes in 15-ounce plastic bottles.


The herbicide is not registered in Arizona, and California users face additional restrictions.
