GENERAL INFORMATION

GALIGAN 2E is a selective herbicide for postemergence application to direct-seeded and transplanted garlic for early postemergence control of certain annual broadleaf and grass weeds. Initial spray application should be made only when the garlic have reached the development stage specified in the DOSAGE section and the SPECIFIC USE RESTRICTIONS section of the label. On garlic transplants, spray as soon after transplanting as practical. GALIGAN 2E herbicide can cause necrotic lesions, twisting, pigtailing, or stunting of the garlic plants. Injury will be more severe if applications are made immediately following or during cool, wet weather and/or if applications are made prior to the development stage of the garlic plants as specified in the DOSAGE section and the SPECIFIC USE RESTRICTIONS section of the label.

GENERAL INFORMATION

GALIGAN 2E is a selective herbicide for preemergence use (by air, ground, or sprinkler application), post-direct use when applied by ground equipment, or postemergence (over the top) application when applied via sprinkler irrigation for control of certain broadleaf and grass weeds in garlic in California.

Preemergence Garlic Applications in California

Apply GALIGAN 2E herbicide at a rate of 1pint (0.25 lb. active) per broadcast acre as a preemergence application to garlic. Methods of application may be ground, sprinkler, or aerial.

Ground Application: If applied using ground application equipment, GALIGAN 2E herbicide should be applied in a minimum of 20 gallons per acre. Use conventional ground spray equipment with flat nozzles at 20 to 40 psi.

Sprinkler Chemigation: If GALIGAN 2E herbicide is to be applied via sprinkler irrigation, follow the method of application directions listed for sprinkler chemigation. For application using sprinkler (solid set or portable lateral) irrigation systems, apply specified dosage of GALIGAN 2E per acre as described above. Follow all directions given in the section entitled APPLICATION THROUGH IRRIGATION SYSTEMS - CHEMIGATION when making applications using sprinkler irrigation systems.

Aerial Application: If applied using aerial application, GALIGAN 2E herbicide should be applied using swirl jet or hollow cone nozzles and a spray pressure less than 40 psi to deliver a minimum spray volume of 10 gallons per acre. Applications should be made at a height of 6 to 10 feet above the soil surface. It as suggested that the nozzles on the spray booms should not be placed any closer to the wing or rotor tips than ¾ of the span; this will minimize the formation of spray or wing tip vortice roll. Nozzles should be spaced and positioned to produce a uniform spray pattern and to minimize or eliminate the formation of droplets 100 microns or less in diameter.

Garlic Response to Preemergence Applications With GALIGAN 2E Herbicide: A chlorotic band around some of the leaves may be observed after the first irrigation (or rainfall) following garlic emergence. Symptoms may be more severe if garlic emerges under cool, wet, overcast, or foggy weather. This condition is temporary and should not affect the vigor or development of the garlic plant.

Postemergence (and Directed) Garlic Applications in California

Apply GALIGAN 2E herbicide at rates up to 1 pint (0.25 lb. active) per broadcast acre as a postemergence (or directed) application in garlic. The garlic must be at least 12 inches in height at application. Weeds should be in the seedling stage, young, and actively growing. Methods of application may be post-directed or by sprinkler chemigation.

Post Direct Application: For banded application, the amount of GALIGAN 2E herbicide used per acre should be reduced according to the following formula:

Accurate, uniform placement of GALIGAN 2E herbicide spray is essential for effective weed control and to minimize garlic injury. As a directed, postemergence application, GALIGAN 2E herbicide should be applied using a low-pressure sprayer using a minimum of 20 gallons of spray on a broadcast acre basis. Apply GALIGAN 2E herbicide as a directed treatment to the soil area at the base of the plants and to the adjacent bed top and furrow areas. Nozzles should be adjusted to cover the weed foliage with minimum contact to the garlic plant. Reduce tractor speed and smooth furrows to minimize excessive bouncing of the spray boom.

Sprinkler Chemigation: If GALIGAN 2E herbicide is to be applied via sprinkler irrigation, follow the method of application directions listed for sprinkler chemigation. For application using sprinkler (solid set or portable lateral) irrigation systems, apply specified dosage of GALIGAN 2E per acre as described above. Follow all directions given in the section entitled APPLICATION THROUGH IRRIGATION SYSTEMS - CHEMIGATION when making applications using sprinkler irrigation systems.

Garlic Response to Postemergence Applications With GALIGAN 2E Herbicide: GALIGAN 2E herbicide may cause chlorotic leaf banding, necrotic lesions, or stunting of the garlic plants. Symptoms will be more severe if applications are made during cool, wet, overcast, or foggy weather. Garlic will outgrow these conditions and continue to develop normally.

Cultural Considerations for use in California

On mineral soils, in order to provide maximum preemergence activity, the soil surface should be smooth and free of excessive trash (clippings, dead weeds, etc.) Cultural practices that result in redistribution or disturbance of the soil surface after spraying or that mix untreated soil in treated areas will reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. The best results from GALIGAN 2E herbicide are from applications on established beds that are left undisturbed during the time period for which weed control is desired.

TIMING AND METHOD OF APPLICATION

For best postemergence control of susceptible weeds, apply when the weeds are in the 2- to 4-leaf stage. Application of GALIGAN 2E herbicide after the weeds exceed the maximum leaf stage may result in reduced weed control. More than one postemergence application may be necessary to control subsequent weed flushes. GALIGAN 2E herbicide should be thoroughly mixed with clean water at recommended concentration and applied in a minimum of 40 gallons of water per acre. Use conventional ground spray equipment with flat fan spray nozzles at 20 to 40 psi. Accurately calibrate spray equipment prior to each use. Avoid drift to all other crops and nontarget areas. Thoroughly flush the spray equipment (tank, hose, pump, boom) with water before and after each use.

Residual GALIGAN 2E herbicide remaining in spray equipment may damage other crops.
