GENERAL USE INFORMATION
Galigan H2O may be applied for preemergence and postemergence weed control. All directions and restrictions for use found in the general use information and specific crop sections of the label must be followed.
In order for Galigan H2O to provide maximum preemergence activity: Prior to application, the bed or soil surface should be smooth and free of crop and weed trash (decaying leaves, clippings, dead weeds, etc.). Leaves and trash may be removed by blowing the area to be treated or by thoroughly mixing the trash into the soil through cultivation prior to herbicide application. After application, at least one-quarter inch (1/4 inch) of irrigation or rainfall should occur within 3 or 4 weeks after application. The best results from Galigan H2O are from applications to established beds or soil surfaces that are left undisturbed during the time period for which weed control is desired. Cultural practices that result in redistribution or disturbance of the soil surface after treatment will decrease the herbicidal effectiveness of Galigan H2O. Cutting water furrows or cultivations that mix untreated soil into treated areas will also reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.
Selective weed control: Some products listed on the label provide selective weed control. Selective weed control occurs when the target weeds are killed without impact to desirable crops or vegetation.
Select proper application rates based on soil conditions, weed spectrum, and desired period of residual weed control.
Preemergence Application: Where rate ranges are given, use the lower rate in the rate range on coarse textured soils with less than 1% organic matter. Use higher rates in the rate range on medium to fine textured soils, soils containing greater than 1% organic matter, or where a longer period of residual weed control is desired.
Postemergence Application: Where a rate range is given, use higher rate in rate range for heavy weed infestations, weeds in advanced stages of growth, or where a longer period of residual weed control is desired.
CLARY SAGE (NORTH CAROLINA ONLY)
Galigan H2O is a selective herbicide which can be used for the control of henbit (Lamium amplexicaule) in Clary Sage (salvia sclarea) used in the essence industry.
Applications to control henbit during the winter season should be timed to start shortly after the first flush of henbit is in the 2- to 4-leaf stage. Additional applications may be required to control subsequent weed flushes through the spring season. Clary Sage may respond to the topical application with some marginal leaf burn, recovery is rapid. After spraying, henbit will stop growing and slowly die.
Galigan H2O should be applied at a rate of 0.25 to 0.5 pint per acre (0.12 to 0.25 lb. active). Galigan should be thoroughly mixed with clean water at recommended concentrations and applied in 20 to 50 gallons of water per acre. Apply at 20 to 40 psi.
