WHEAT - EARLY SEASON APPLICATIONS
Weedmaster herbicide is a selective postemergence herbicide for controlling a wide spectrum of annual, biennial, and perennia broadleaf weeds and brush in grass forages and selected row crops.
Mode of Action
Weedmaster contains two active ingredients: dicamba and 2,4-D. Weedmaster is readily absorbed by plants through shoot and root uptake, translocates throughout the plant's system, and accumulates in areas of active growth. Weedmaster interferes with the plant's growth hormones (auxins) resulting in death of many broadleaf weeds.
Apply Weedmaster at the rates and growth stages listed in Table 1 and Table 2 as follows unless instructed differently by Food/Feed Crop-specific Informations or Nonfood/Feed Use-specific Information. Applications can be made to actively growing weeds as aerial, broadcast, band, or spot spray applications. Weedmaster may be applied using water or sprayable fluid fertilizer as a carrier. Sprayable fluid fertilizer may be used as the carrier in preplant or preemergence uses for all crops listed on the label. Postemergence uses with sprayable fluid fertilizer may be made on pasture, hayland, or wheat crops only.
The most effective application rate and timing varies based on the target weeds species (refer to Table 1 and Table 2). In mixed populations of weeds, thte correct rate is determined by the weed species requiring the highest rate.
Delaying application permits weeds to exceed the maximum size stated and will prevent adequate control.
All aerial and ground application eqduipment must be properly maintained and calibrated using appropriate carriers or surrogates.
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 injur susceptible broadleaf plants.
Do not graze or harvest for livestock feed prior to crop maturity.
Do not use Weedmaster in wheat underseeded with legumes.
EARLY SEASON APPLICATIONS:
Apply Weedmaster per acre to wheat unless using one of the wheat specific programs in the label.
Early season applications to spring-seeded wheat must be made after tillering and before wheat reaches the 6-leaf stage.
Early season applications to fall-seeded wheat must be made after tillering and prior to the jointing stage.
Care should be taken in staging early developing wheat varieties such as TAM 107, Madison, or Wakefield to be certain that the application occurs prior to the jointing stage.
