SUGARCANE - HAWAII ONLY
PRODUCT PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application.
SPOT TREATMENTS FOR ALL USE SITES
Spot treatment restriction: Spot treatment is defined as a treatment area no greater than 1,000 sq. ft. per acre. Spot treatments are limited to 2 (two) applications per year. A maximum rate of 2.14 quarts CLEAN AMINE per acre (2.0 lbs ae/acre or 0.045 lb ae/1000 sq ft.) per application. Wait a minimum of 30 days between applications. Broadcast application is prohibited at this use rate.
Aerial application is prohibited for spot treatments.
Mix CLEAN AMINE only with water to obtain adequate coverage, unless otherwise directed on this label. Add about half the water to the mixing tank, then add the CLEAN AMINE with agitation, and finally the rest of the water with continuing agitation. Note: Adding oil, wetting agent, or other surfactant to the spray may increase effectiveness on weeds, but also may reduce selectivity to crops, resulting in crop damage.
Crops contacted by CLEAN AMINE sprays or spray drift may be killed or suffer significant stand loss with extensive quality and yield reduction.
When an adjuvant is to be used with this product, Loveland Products, Inc. recommends using LI 700. For drift control and defoaming, the use of Compadre at .125% v/v is recommended.
SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
A variety of factors including weather conditions (e.g., wind direction, wind speed, temperature, relative humidity) and method of application (e.g., ground, aerial, airblast, chemigation) can influence pesticide drift. The applicator must evaluate all factors and make appropriate adjustments when applying this product.
Do not apply under circumstances where spray drift may occur to food, forage, or other plantings that might be damaged or crops thereof rendered unfit for sale, use or consumption. Susceptible crops include, but are not limited to, cotton, okra, flowers, grapes (in growing stage), fruit trees (foliage), soybeans (vegetative stage), ornamentals, sunflowers, tomatoes, beans, and other vegetables, or tobacco. Small amounts of spray drift that might not be visible may injure susceptible broadleaf plants.
Other State and Local Requirements
Applicators must follow all state and local pesticide drift requirements regarding application of 2,4-D herbicides. Where states have more stringent regulations, they must be observed.
All aerial and ground application equipment must be properly maintained and calibrated using appropriate carriers or surrogates. The boom length must not exceed 75% of the wingspan or 90% of the rotor blade diameter.
Release spray at the lowest height consistent with efficacy and flight safety. Do not release spray at a height greater than 10 feet above the crop canopy unless a greater height is required for aircraft safety. This requirement does not apply to forestry or rights-of-way applications.
When applications are made with a crosswind, the swath will be displaced downwind. The applicator must compensate for this by adjusting the path of the aircraft upwind. For ground boom application:
Do not apply with a nozzle height greater than 4 feet above the crop canopy.
Use of this product in certain portions of California, Oregon, and Washington is subject to the January 22, 2004 Order for injunctive relief in Washington Toxics Coalition, et al. v. EPA, CO132C, (W.D. WA). For further information, please refer to EPA Web Site: http://www.epa.gov/espp.
Generally, the lower dosages given will be satisfactory for young, succulent growth of sensitive weed species. For less sensitive species and under conditions where control is more difficult, the higher dosages will be needed. Apply CLEAN AMINE during warm weather when weeds are young and growing actively. Apply a minimum of 2 gals of spray solution per acre by air or a minimum of 5 gals of spray solution per acre by ground unless directed otherwise.
Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
PLANTING IN TREATED AREAS
Labeled Crops: Crops listed as use sites on this or other registered 2,4-D labels may be planted within 29 days of CLEAN AMINE application. Follow more specific limitations (if listed) provided in the directions for individual crops. Labeled crops may be at risk for crop injury or loss when planted soon after application, especially in the first 14 days.
Degradation factors described below should be considered in weighing this risk.
Other Crops: All other crops may be planted 30 or more days following an application without concern for illegal residues in the planted crop. However, under certain conditions, there may be a risk of injury to susceptible crops. Degradation factors described below should be considered in weighing this risk. Under normal conditions, any crop may be planted without risk of injury if at least 90 days of soil temperatures above freezing have elapsed since application.
Degradation factors: When planting into treated areas, the risk of crop injury is less if lower rates of product were applied and conditions following application have included warm, moist soil conditions that favor rapid degradation of 2,4-D. Risk is greater if higher rates of product were applied and soil temperatures have been cold and/or soils have been excessively wet or dry in the days following application.
Consult your local Agricultural Extension Service for information about susceptible crops and typical soil conditions in your area.

Crop-Specific Use Restrictions
Apply 1 to 3 pts CLEAN AMINE per acre per application as required. Do not harvest cane prior to crop maturity. Do not apply more than 4.28 qts CLEAN AMINE per acre (4 lbs ae/acre) per year.
Preemergence: Limited to one application per crop cycle. Do not exceed a maximum of 2.14 qts CLEAN AMINE per acre (2.0 lbs ae/acre) per application.
Post emergence: Do not exceed a maximum of 2.14 qts CLEAN AMINE per acre (2.0 lbs ae/acre) per application. Layby applications may be made, but crop damage may occur in some sugarcane cultivars. Do not apply this product in a manner that allows spray to drift from the application target site and/or harm to humans, animals or other non-target sites.
For the islands of Maui and Kauai, the general wind restriction is raised to 20 MPH. When applying in winds in excess of 15 MPH, the following requirements are in effect:
Aerial Applications: Aerial applicators must:
- No application shall be made within a distance of 1000 feet of sensitive areas such as Nature Preserves, Wildlife Refuges, Parks, Lakes, Reservoirs, Rivers, Streams, Non-irrigation Canals, Natural Ponds, Estuaries, Wetlands, Intertidal Areas, Ecologically Significant Grasslands, homes, public or private buildings, or fields with crops other than sugarcane whenever these sensitive areas are downwind from the spray areas and subject to possible spray drift. In instances where these sensitive areas are upwind from the spray area, the minimum restricted distance shall be 300 feet.
- Apply only as a coarse or coarser spray (ASAE standard 572 or a volume mean diameter of 385 microns).
- Use a spray drift retardant and/or other measures known to control drift.
Ground Broadcast Applications: For ground applications, applicators must:
- Apply by ground boom with nozzle height no more than 2 feet above ground (pre-emergence) or crop canopy (post emergent broadcast) applications or, for directed sprays, no more than 1 foot above the ground, or 1.25 ft (15 inches) for better spray patterns without boom levelers on uneven terrain.
- Apply only as a coarse or coarser spray (ASAE standard 572) or a volume mean diameter of 385 microns.
- Use spray drift retardants and/or other measures known to control drift.
Recommended applications techniques to reduce off-site drift include, but are not limited to, the use of hooded or shielded sprayers or other means to reduce drift.
