EPA is requiring registrants of paraquat products to revise their labels. The revisions are to mitigate potential exposure to paraquat, an acutely toxic herbicide used in non-selective weed control. Labels will also contain a statement regarding the training requirements that will be mandatory for certified applicators of paraquat. This document will present an overview of the new label revisions.
