SOYBEANS - NO- TILLAGE - POSTEMERGENCE

General Information

GENERAL USE INFORMATION

Unless otherwise directed by registered supplemental labels, follow the Directions for Use in each crop group section.

IMPORTANT: Read the entire DIRECTIONS FOR USE and the LIMITATION OF WARRANTY AND LIABILITY before using this product. If terms are not acceptable, return the unopened product container to the place of purchase at once.

When an adjuvant is to be used with this product, Makhteshim Agan of North America, Inc. suggests the use of a Chemical Producers and Distributors Association certified adjuvant.

IMPORTANT: TREATED SOIL MUST BE THOROUGHLY INCORPORATED TO A DEPTH OF 4 INCHES AFTER HARVEST (OR ABANDONING) OF THE TREATED CROP BUT PRIOR TO PLANTING OF THE ROTATIONAL CROP. FAILURE TO ACHIEVE THIS THOROUGH AND COMPLETE INCORPORATION OR TO FOLLOW THE REQUIRED MINIMUM PLANT-BACK INTERVAL MAY RESULT IN CROP INJURY, STAND REDUCTION, AND/OR VIGOR REDUCTION OF THE PLANT-BACK CROP. See specific fallow bed labeling regarding crop planting information for applications of GALIGAN 2E made to a fallow bed or fallow field.

GENERAL USE RESTRICTIONS

USE RESTRICTIONS THAT APPLY TO ALL REGISTERED APPLICATIONS ARE LISTED BELOW:

- Read and observe all label directions before using. When tank mixing, always read all individual manufacturers' labels. In interpreting all labels for the tank mixture, the most restrictive situations must apply.

- Do not contaminate irrigation water or water used for domestic purposes.

- Do not use any plants treated with GALIGAN 2E herbicide for feed or forage.

- Do not feed or allow animals to graze on any areas treated with GALIGAN 2E herbicide.

- GALIGAN 2E herbicide should be applied only by ground application equipment except as specifically directed on the label or on other approved supplemental labeling.

- Do not apply when weather conditions favor drift. Avoid drift to all nontarget areas. GALIGAN 2E herbicide is phytotoxic to plant foliage.

- Thoroughly flush spray equipment (tank, pump, hoses, and boom) with clean water before and after each use. Residual GALIGAN 2E herbicide remaining in spray equipment may damage other crops. To assist in the removal of GALIGAN 2E herbicide residues in spray equipment, a non-ionic surfactant such as Latron AG-98 or Latron CS-7 may be added at the rate of 1 quart per 100 gallons of water during flushing.

- Use GALIGAN 2E herbicide only for recommended purposes and at recommended rates.

- Do not treat ditch banks or waterways with GALIGAN 2E herbicide.

- On all labeled food and/or feed crops, the maximum seasonal application rate is 1.5 lbs. active ingredient (6 pints of this product) per acre (except tropical commodities grown in Hawaii).

- On all labeled ornamentals, the maximum application rate of 1.5 lbs. active ingredient (6 pints of this product) per application is allowed. A total of 4.5 lbs. active ingredient (18 pints of this product) is allowed per season.

- On all labeled conifer seedlings, the maximum application rate is 2 lbs. active ingredient (8 pints of this product) per acre.

Refer to the label regarding chemigation and tank mix information.

GENERAL INFORMATION

GALIGAN 2E is effective as a preemergence and postemergence (post-directed) herbicide for the control of broadleaf weeds in soybeans. Applications can be made early preplant in conservation tillage soybeans, preemergence in no-till (double-crop) and conventional soybeans, or post-directed in conventional till soybeans. Seedling weeds are controlled as they come in contact with the herbicide either during emergence or through a post-directed application. Follow specific use directions and restrictions for recommended use and timing of applications.

Soybeans are tolerant to preemergence and post-directed applications of recommended dosages of GALIGAN 2E herbicide; however, under certain conditions, GALIGAN 2E herbicide can cause temporary injury. Heavy splashing rain shortly after crop emergence or cold, wet soil conditions during early growth stages can produce leaf cupping and crinkling. When injury occurs, it is generally limited to the first few leaves that develop shortly after crop plants emerge from the soil. Soybeans recover from this injury and yields are not adversely affected. Soybean leaves that are accidentally sprayed during a post-directed application will exhibit necrotic spotting and injury to the soybean plant. Therefore, care must be exercised to avoid spray contact with the soybean leaves.

NO-TILL (DOUBLE-CROP) SOYBEANS

PREEMERGENCE

GALIGAN 2E herbicide is effective for preemergence and postemergence control of susceptible broadleaf weeds when applied at 0.5 to 2 pints (0.125 to 0.5 lb. active) per broadcast acre. For postemergence control of certain grassy and broadleaf weeds, a tank mix of either paraquat (Gramoxone) or glyphosate (Roundup) with GALIGAN 2E herbicide can be used. For residual grass control in notillage soybeans, a tank mixture of Bronco, Dual, Lasso, or Surflan with GALIGAN 2E herbicide or combinations of GALIGAN 2E herbicide plus paraquat (Gramoxone) or glyphosate (Roundup) can be used. Follow specific use directions and restrictions for these combination tank mixes. Application should be made within one day after planting. Late applications may result in severe crop injury and are not recommended.

TIMING AND METHOD OF APPLICATION

As a preemergence treatment, apply in 20 to 60 gallons of water per acre. If Bronco or glyphosate (Roundup) are included in the tank mix, apply in 20 to 40 gallons of water per acre. To insure complete coverage, spray volume should be increased as the density of emerged weeds, crop residue, or stubble increases. Use conventional spray equipment with flat fan or flood jet nozzles. Spray equipment should be calibrated carefully before each use.

SPECIFIC ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS

This product is highly toxic to freshwater clams, oysters, aquatic invertebrates, and aquatic plants. Do not apply GALIGAN 2E herbicide when visible erosion to aquatic habitats and/or wetlands occurs. (See elsewhere on the label for further information on Environmental Hazards).

SPECIFIC USE RESTRICTIONS

In addition to the following, also observe GENERAL USE RESTRICTIONS listed at the e beginning of the label.

- Read and observe all label directions before using. When tank mixing, always read all individual manufacturers' labels. In interpreting all labels for the tank mixture, the most restrictive situations must apply.

- Do not apply more than 2 pints (0.5 lb. active) of GALIGAN 2E herbicide per acre during one growing season as a result of preemergence application in no-till (double-crop) or conventional till soybeans. Do not apply more than 1 pint (0.25 lb. active) of Galigan 2E as a postemergence application. If early preplant application is made, do not apply more than 3 pints (0.75 lb. active) of Galigan 2E herbicide per acre during one growing season.

- Do not apply a post-directed application of GALIGAN 2E herbicide to soybeans after the initial appearance of blooms.

- Do not make more than one postemergence application to soybeans.

Poinsettia, Wild, Sida, Prickly (Teaweed): Multiple applications may be required for acceptable control.

Sicklepod: Post-direct applications of GALIGAN 2E herbicide will kill or suppress seedlings not exceeding the one true leaf stage.
