TALL FESCUE GROWN FOR SEED
REPORT must be used only in accordance with recommendations on the label or in separate published Cheminova recommendations. Cheminova will not be responsible for losses or damages resulting from the use of this product in any manner not specifically recommended by Cheminova.
Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
REPORT herbicide is recommended for use on land primarily dedicated to the long-term production of wheat, barley, or oat.
APPLICATION TO CEREALS
REPORT is a dry-flowable granule that controls weeds in wheat (including durum), triticale, barley, and spring oat.
In addition, REPORT may also be used on winter oat in Texas, Western Oregon, and Western Washington. REPORT is mixed in water or directly into liquid nitrogen fertilizer solutions and applied as a uniform broadcast spray. A surfactant should be used in the spray mix unless otherwise specified on the label.
Note: For definitions of portions of States recommended on the label, see listings of counties or area definitions on Crop Rotation Interval charts of the label.
REPORT is noncorrosive, nonflammable, nonvolatile, and does not freeze.
REPORT controls weeds by both preemergence and postemergence activity. For best preemergence results, apply REPORT before weed seeds germinate. Use sprinkler irrigation or allow rainfall to move REPORT 2 to 3” deep into the soil profile.
For best postemergence results, apply REPORT to young, actively-growing weeds. The use rate depends upon the weed spectrum and size of weeds at time of application.
The degree and duration of control may depend on the following:
- weed spectrum and infestation intensity
- weed size at application
- environmental conditions at and following treatment.
Environmental Conditions and Biological Activity
REPORT is absorbed through the roots and foliage of broadleaf weeds, rapidly inhibiting their growth. One to 3 weeks after application to weeds, leaves of susceptible plants appear chlorotic, and the growing point subsequently dies. Postemergent application of REPORT provides the best control in vigorously-growing crops that shade competitive weeds. Weed control in areas of thin crop stand or seeding skips may not be as satisfactory. However, a crop canopy that is too dense at application can intercept spray and reduce weed control. REPORT may injure crops that are stressed from adverse environmental conditions (such as extreme temperatures or moisture), abnormal soil conditions, or cultural practices. In addition, different varieties of the crop may be sensitive to treatment with REPORT under otherwise normal conditions. Treatment of such varieties may injure crops.
In warm, moist conditions, the expression of herbicide symptoms is accelerated in weeds; in cold, dry conditions, expression of herbicide symptoms is delayed. In addition, weeds hardenedoff by drought stress are less susceptible to REPORT.
Rainfall is needed to move REPORT into the soil for preemergence weed control, but postemergence weed control may be reduced if rainfall occurs soon after application.
APPLICATION TO TALL FESCUE GROWN FOR SEED
REPORT may be used for control of wild carrot in Tall Fescue grown for seed in the states of Oregon and Washington.
Apply REPORT at 0.25 ounce per acre in late summer to early fall (immediately after harvest to late September). If wild carrot has emerged, add a non-ionic surfactant at 1 qt. per 100 gallons of spray solution. The use of crop oil or seed oil adjuvants may increase crop injury. To maximize crop safety, add 0.5 to 1.0 lb. active ingredient of 2,4-D, and apply when Tall Fescue has very little new foliar growth.
Treatment with REPORT may reduce the height of Tall Fescue. In areas of spray overlap, crop height and yields may be reduced significantly.
Applications made in the spring while Tall Fescue is actively-growing can result in very significant crop damage.
Spring germinating wild carrot may not be controlled by a fall application of REPORT.
Do not mix REPORT with an organophosphate insecticide as severe crop injury may occur.
There are no grazing, feeding, or hay-harvest restrictions for this use of REPORT on Tall Fescue.
