COTTON : PREPLANT OR POSTPLANT UP TO CRACKING

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

This product is a herbicide for use in cotton, fruit, nuts, golf-courses, turf, grass seed crops, forestry, and non-crop areas. This product contains a surfactant (wetting agent). Additional surfactant may be required depending on the application spray volume. Local conditions and recommendations vary; consult local agricultural experiment station or extension service weed specialists for recommendations in your area.

APPLICATION METHODS

This product should be applied with a low-volume, low-pressure, properly calibrated sprayer having satisfactory pumping and bypass action. For ground directed spray applications adjust nozzles in a manner to allow maximum coverage of weeds (and in a manner to keep spray off cotton foliage). DO NOT apply with hose-end applicators. This product is somewhat corrosive to certain metals; therefore, use in galvanized steel or aluminum equipment is not recommended.

For aerial application with fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter application, an exactly even swath deposition cannot be achieved, and consequently crop injury or pesticide nonperformance may result wholly or in part. Do not apply by air during periods of thermal inversion.

Apply during warm weather when weeds are in an active stage of growth. Adequate coverage is very important for effective weed control.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

PREPLANT OR POSTPLANT UP TO CRACKING APPLICATION ON COTTON:

A single ground or aircraft application of this product can be made to prepared cotton seedbeds when planting has been delayed and weeds have emerged, or as a postplant treatment, but no later than initial cracking of soil in field before emergence of cotton. Planting of cotton may immediately follow the preplant application. Mix at the rate of 2 lbs. a.i. (2 2/3 pints) of this product in 40 gallons of water for ground equipment or in 5 to 10 gallons of water for aircraft application, and apply using a properly calibrated sprayer to one acre. See SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS below. DO NOT make more than one application preplant or postplant up to cracking of soil before cotton emergence.

Restricted Entry Interval
