Based on the evaluation of currently available scientific information, Health Canada is proposing that products containing ferrous sulfate (used as an herbicide) are acceptable for continued registration for use and sale in Canada.
Registered pesticide product labels include specific instructions for use. Directions include risk mitigation measures to protect human health and the environment that must be followed by law. As a result of the re-evaluation of ferrous sulfate, no additional risk mitigation measures are proposed by the PMRA. To meet current labelling standards, the following label updates are proposed:
Environmental hazard label statements; and
Updated restricted-entry interval statement.
Iron (Present as Ferrous Sulfate Monohydrate and Ferrous Sulfate Heptahydrate) is a registered pesticide used by licensed applicators to control moss on lawn and turf.
This consultation is open for comment from 5 March 2019 to 3 June 2019.
