FOR USE ON SUGAR BEET - BROADLEAF WEEDS CONTROLLED
IMPORTANT CROP SAFETY INFORMATION READ BEFORE USING THIS PRODUCT
Reckon 280SL may be applied as a burndown treatment prior to planting or prior to emergence of any conventional or transgenic variety of canola, corn, sweet corn*, cotton, olive, rice*, soybean or sugar beet. Reckon 280SL may be applied to conventional cotton not tolerant to the active ingredient in Reckon 280SL using a hooded sprayer.
*Not for use in CA
Post emergence row crop applications of Reckon 280SL may be made only to crops tolerant to the active ingredient in this product. Orion GFS, LLC does not warrant the use of this product on crops other than those designated as LibertyLink® to safely withstand the application of Reckon 280SL.
The basis of selectivity of Reckon 280SL in crops is the presence of a gene in LibertyLink crops which results in a plant that is tolerant to the active ingredient in Reckon 280SL. Crops not containing this gene will not be tolerant to Reckon 280SL, and severe crop injury and/or death may occur. Do not allow spray to contact foliage or green tissue of desirable vegetation other than crops tolerant to the active ingredient in this product.
Applications to trees, vines and berries should avoid contact of Reckon 280SL solution, spray, drift or mist with green bark, stems, or foliage, as injury may occur to trees, berries and vines. Only trunks with callused, mature brown bark should be sprayed unless protected from spray contact by nonporous wraps, grow tubes or waxed containers. Contact of Reckon 280SL with parts of trees, berries or vines other than mature brown bark can result in serious damage.
Reckon 280SL is a water-soluble herbicide for application as a foliar spray for the control of a broad spectrum of emerged annual and perennial grass and broadleaf weeds in LibertyLink canola, corn, cotton and soybean, and in trees, vines and berries. Reckon 280SL may also be applied for potato vine desiccation. Reckon 280SL may also be applied as a broadcast burndown application before planting or prior to emergence of any conventional or transgenic variety of canola, corn, sweet corn*, cotton, olive, rice*, soybean or sugar beet.
*Not for use in CA
Reckon 280SL is only foliar-active with little or no activity in soil. Weeds that emerge after application will not be controlled. Apply Reckon 280SL to actively growing weeds as described in the Weed Control Recommendations for Row Crops section to get maximum weed control. Uniform, thorough spray coverage is necessary to achieve consistent weed control. Necrosis of leaves and young shoots occur within 2 to 4 days after application under good growing conditions.
- Reckon 280SL is rainfast four (4) hours after application to most weed species; therefore, rainfall within four (4) hours may necessitate retreatment or may result in reduced weed control.
- Applications should be made between dawn and 2 hours before sunset to avoid the possibility of reduced lambsquarters and velvetleaf control.
Consult your local Cooperative Extension Service or Orion GFS Representative for guidelines on the optimum application timing for Reckon 280SL in your region.
- Weed control may be reduced if application is made when heavy dew, fog and mist/rain are present; or when weeds are under stress due to environmental conditions such as drought, cool temperatures or extended periods of cloudiness.
- To maximize weed control, do not cultivate from 5 days before an application to 7 days after an application.

Integrated Weed Management
The active ingredient in Reckon 280SL is glufosinate-ammonium, which is a glutamine synthetase inhibitor (Group 10). Integrated weed management guidelines promote an economically viable, environmentally sustainable and socially acceptable weed control program regardless of the herbicide(s) used. The highlights of a successful integrated weed management program include:
1. Correctly identify weeds and look for trouble areas within field to identify resistance indicators.
2. Rotate crops.
3. Start the year with clean fields.
4. Rotate herbicide modes of action by using multiple modes of action during the year and apply no more than two applications of a single herbicide mode of action to the same field in a two-year period. One method to accomplish this is to rotate herbicide tolerant trait systems.
5. Apply listed rates of herbicides to actively growing weeds at the correct time with the right application techniques.
6. Control any weeds that may have escaped the herbicide application.
7. Thoroughly clean field equipment between fields.
Contact your local agronomic advisor for more specific information on integrated weed management for your area.
APPLICATION AND MIXING PROCEDURES
Do not use flood jet nozzles, controlled droplet application equipment or air-assisted spray equipment. Uniform thorough spray coverage is important to achieve consistent weed control.
Ground Application: Refer to the Rate Tables for proper application rates. DO NOT apply when winds are gusty or when conditions will favor movement of spray particles off the desired spray target. To avoid drift and insure consistent weed control, apply Reckon 280SL with the spray boom as low as possible while maintaining a uniform spray pattern. Reckon 280SL should be applied broadcast in a minimum of 15 gallons of water per acre using a minimum spray pressure of 40 psi and a maximum ground speed of 10 mph. The use of 80 degree or 110 degree flat fan nozzles is highly recommended for optimum spray coverage and canopy penetration. Application of the spray at a 45-degree angle forward will result in better spray coverage. Under dense weed/crop canopies, 20 to 40 gallons of water per acre should be used so that thorough spray coverage will be obtained. Apply Reckon 280SL using nozzles and pressures that generate MEDIUM (about 250 to 350 microns) spray droplets category as reported by the nozzle manufacturer and in accordance to ASABE S 572. Do not use nozzles and pressures that result in COARSE sprays. FINE sprays should also be avoided to minimize spray drift risk. Boom height should be based on nozzle manufacturer recommendations. See the Spray Drift Management section of this label for additional information on proper application of Reckon 280SL.
Aerial Application: Poor coverage will result in reduced weed control. For optimal weed control, apply Reckon 280SL in a minimum of 10 gallons per acre. Apply Reckon 280SL using nozzles and pressures that generate MEDIUM (about 300 to 400 microns) spray droplets category as reported by the nozzle manufacturer and in accordance to ASABE S 572 based upon the selected air speed. Do not use nozzles and pressures that result in COARSE sprays. FINE sprays should also be avoided to minimize spray drift risk. See the Spray Drift Management section of this label for additional information on proper application of Reckon 280SL.
APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON SUGAR BEET
THOROUGH SPRAY COVERAGE IS VERY IMPORTANT. Reckon 280SL works best when weeds are actively growing. A cultivation may be made at least 5 days before a Reckon 280SL application or 5 days after a Reckon 280SL application.
Applications of Reckon 280SL on sugar beet may be made from the cotyledon stage up to the 10-leaf stage of the sugar beet. Reckon 280SL is a foliar-active material with no soil-residual activity. For best results, apply to emerged, young actively growing weeds. Weeds that emerge after application will not be controlled. Reckon 280SL will have an effect on weeds that are larger than the recommended leaf stage; however, speed of activity and control may be reduced. Weed control may be reduced if application is made when heavy dew, fog, and mist/rain are present; or when weeds are under stress due to drought, cool temperatures, or extended periods of cloudiness. Reckon 280SL is rainfast 4 hours after application, therefore, rainfall within 4 hours may necessitate retreatment.
For best weed control and sugar beet yield, Reckon 280SL applications should begin when weeds are up to 1 inch in height or diameter. Repeat applications should be made when newly germinated weeds again reach 1 inch in height or diameter. Refer to the Rate Tables for Weed Control In Sugar Beets for selection of the proper rate dependent upon the weed species present and size.
A repeat application of Reckon 280SL or a tank mix application with a residual herbicide selected from the tank mix partners listed on this label will be needed to control weeds that have not yet emerged at the time of application.
