The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has issued a 24(c) Special Local Need label for Oberon in celery for two-spotted spider mite control. This label is effective immediately and will stay in effect until August 23, 2017.
Oberon (spiromesifen) is a different chemical class than Agri-Mek (abamectin). Please make sure to follow label rates, restriction and recommendations and have a copy of the 24(c) label in hand when buying Oberon for use in celery. View the regular Oberon label (the one that doesn't have celery on it).
