Western Growers is pleased to bring forward good news on the availability of key crop protection materials. Kerb SC Herbicide is now, once again, federally registered for use on leaf lettuce, and labels are available in both California and Arizona. 

“Western Growers has been working to make this use available for several years and we are extremely pleased that USEPA and the states have restored leaf lettuce to the Kerb label,” said Hank Giclas, Western Growers Senior Vice President, Science & Technology and Strategic Planning.

Our 90th Annual Meeting held this past November was a productive, elegant and memorable event. Much work goes into preparing the meeting, and a great deal of the meeting’s success is owed to our sponsors. Over the course of the year, Western Growers likes to remind members about those companies who acted as sponsors and without whose generosity and support, the meeting would not have been possible.
