GENERAL CHEMIGATION INSTRUCTIONS

Apply this product only through sprinkler including center-pivot, lateral-move, side (wheel) roll, traveler, big-gun, solid-set or hand-move irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from non-uniform distribution of treated water.

If you have questions about calibration, you should contact State Extension Service Specialists, equipment manufacturers or other experts.

Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system unless the pesticide label prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place.

A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation, or under supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.

CHEMIGATION SYSTEMS CONNECTED TO PUBLIC WATER SYSTEMS

Public water system means a system for the provision to the public of piped water for human consumption, if such system has at least 15 service connections or regularly serves an average of at least 25 individuals daily at least 60 days out of the year.

Chemigation systems connected to public water systems must contain a functional, reducedpressure zone, backflow preventer (RPZ) or the functional equivalent in the water supply line upstream from the point of pesticide introduction. As an option to the PRZ, the water from the public water system should be discharged into a reservoir tank prior to pesticide introduction. There shall be a complete physical break (air gap) between the outlet and the fill pipe in the top or overflow rim of the reservoir tank of at least twice the inside diameter of the fill pipe. The pesticide-injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check-valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump.

The pesticide-injection pipeline must contain a functional, normally-closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down.

The system must contain functional interlocking-controls to automatically shut off the pesticide-injection pump when the pump motor stops, or in cases where there is no water pump, when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive-displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively-designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with the pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.

Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.

The pesticide supply tank should be agitated throughout the application of KICKSTAND PGR. KICKSTAND PGR should be applied at the end of the water application.

KICKSTAND PGR should be applied at the end of the irrigation period in a sufficient amount of water to allow proper coverage of plant or crop but not to exceed 12 fluid ounces of KICKSTAND PGR per acre per application.

SPRINKLER CHEMIGATION

The system must contain a functional check-valve, vacuum-relief valve, and low-pressure drain appropriately-located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water source contamination from backflow.

The pesticide-injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check-valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump.

The pesticide-injection pipeline must also contain a functional, normally-closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. The system must contain functional interlocking-controls to automatically shut off the pesticide-injection pump when the water-pump motor stops.

The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure-switch which will stop the water-pump motor when the water pressure decreases to a point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected. System must use a metering pump, such as a positive-displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively-designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.

Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment. The pesticide supply tank should agitated throughout the application of KICKSTAND PGR. KICKSTAND PGR should be applied at the end of the water application.

KICKSTAND PGR should be applied at the end of the irrigation period in a sufficient amount of water to allow proper coverage of plant or crop but not to exceed 11 fluid ounces of KICKSTAND PGR per acre per application.

IMPORTANT: Read the entire Directions For Use and the Warranty And Disclaimer Statement before using this product. If terms are not acceptable, return the unopened product container at once.

GENERAL INFORMATION

KICKSTAND PGR, containing Asset Formulation Technology, is a plant growth regulator designed for use with pesticides and/or fertilizers.

KICKSTAND PGR is effective in increasing the rate of growth and development of plant systems.

KICKSTAND PGR is compatible with liquid fertilizer and anhydrous ammonia.

APPLICATIONS WITH SOIL APPLIED FERTILIZER

For in-furrow, banded, side-dressed and broadcast applications through conventional equipment, apply KICKSTAND PGR in conjunction with and/or following the application of pesticides and/or fertilizers. Best results are obtained when KICKSTAND PGR is incorporated, injected, or applied in a zone or band in the soil at a minimum depth of two (2) to four (4) inches.

APPLICATIONS WITH DRY GRANULAR-FERTILIZERS

KICKSTAND PGR may be directly impregnated on dry granular-fertilizers. Apply sufficient KICKSTAND PGR to provide the recommended label rates per acre when treated fertilizer is applied. Dry granular-fertilizers treated with KICKSTAND PGR have an indefinite shelf life.

TRANSPLANT SOLUTIONS

Mix 6-10 fl. oz. with each 100 gallons of transplant solution.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

RICE: Apply at the 3 leaf to tillering stage of plant growth.

Restricted Entry Interval
