Consultation on Trichoderma harzianum Rifai strain KRL AG2 and Its Associated End-use Products, Proposed Re evaluation Decision PRVD2017-20

This consultation is now closed.

Trichoderma harzianum Rifai strain KRL-AG2 is a strain of a naturally occurring fungus that is used by growers, farm workers and commercial applicators to protect plants from disease-causing fungi. (Find labels for Bora, Rootshield and BW240 products in the pesticide label search database). Following a scheduled re-evaluation under the Re-evaluation Program, the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is consulting Canadians on the proposal to continue the registration of Trichoderma harzianum Rifai strain KRL-AG2, with updated label statements to reflect current health and environmental standards.

The updated label statements include:

  • Requirements for workers’ personal protective equipment when re-entering treated areas within 4 hours of use
  • Precautions to reduce drift and runoff
  • Precautions to protect aquatic areas and drinking water sources
