d-Limonene Crop Safety – 2014

Research Summary Abstract

From 2012 to 2013, IR-4 completed 19 trials on Avenger Ag (d-limonene). The data contained in this report was generated to register uses of active ingredient on and around ornamental horticulture plants with broadcast applications, including over the top of established plants. The Avenger Ag rates in this testing program were at 14 and 28 % v/v as the 1X and 2X rates. It had been applied to 11 plant genera or species. Results showed Avenger Ag causing no injury when applied to these crops in the dormant stage of growth. Of these genera and species, none exhibited no or minimal transient injury after the second application at both rates. Six (6) crops showed significant injury after the second application. Of the six (6) crops that still need additional information, there is one (1) species in which one trial did not show significant injury at 1X and 2X rates.
