Chateau herbicideChateau herbicide, from Walnut Creek, Calif.-based Valent U.S.A. Corp., can now be used for fallow beds in California destined for transplanted tomatoes.

The Environmental Protection Agency and California Department of Pesticide Regulation approved a supplmental label for the herbicide.

The label change will allow growers to use it as a fall fallow treatment to control annual winter weeds, such as shepherd's purse, chickweed, lambsquarter, mallow, marestail and fleabane, according to a news release.

The herbicide is a pre-emergence, preventing weed seeds from germinating.

It contains the active ingredient, flumioxazin, which belongs to the Herbicide Resistance Action Committee's Group E or the Weed Science Society of America's Group 14.
