DRY-SEEDED RICE - SPLIT APPLICATION - PREEMERGENCE FOLLOWED BY POSTEMERGENCE - MS, AS, TX, LA, MO

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

BOLERO 8 EC applied late preemergence will control many weeds in rice. The Propanil component of BOLERO 8 EC plus Propanil tank mixture increases postemergence activity for control of weeds listed. BOLERO 8 EC will provide residual control of some weeds up to 5 weeks following application.

The BOLERO 8 EC plus Propanil tank mixture will not prevent reinfestation of Hemp Sesbania, Northern or Indian Jointvetch, Broadleaf Signalgrass or Pitted Morningglory. For waterseeded rice, apply to non-flooded fields only, application should not be made before rice is in the 2 leaf stage of development and soils should be sealed and wet at the time of application. Do not apply to stressed rice. Temporary injury to seedling rice may occur under certain conditions.

Application Equipment

Aircraft: Apply BOLERO 8 EC in no less than 10 gals. Spray mix per acre.

Ground Sprayers: Apply in 10 to 20 gals. of total spray mix per acre.

Precautions: Do not apply more than 4 lbs. active ingredient per acre per year. Do not plant subsequent crops in treated fields within 6 months of last application. Do not overlap or double spray ends of field. Avoid drift to non-target areas. Do not apply to rice paddies where commercial catfish or crayfish farming is practiced. Do not use adjacent to catfish ponds. In Texas and other areas where double cropping is the agricultural practice, do not apply to a second stubble rice crop. Water drained directly from treated fields must not be used to irrigate other crops.

Do not apply BOLERO 8 EC plus Propanil mixture within 14 days before or after organophosphate or carbamate insecticide application. Do not apply tank mix with Propanil when rain is expected within 6 hours. Rice seedlings with succulent growth may exhibit temporary foliar burn which may be greater than conventional Propanil application but usually recover after 10 to 14 days. Do not mix liquid nitrogen, zinc or surfactants with BOLERO 8 EC alone or when mixed with Propanil.

This product can be mixed with Propanil for use on rice in accordance with the more restrictive of label limitations and precautions. No label dosage rates should be exceeded. This product cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing. Application to stressed rice can result in stand reduction, chlorosis, growth inhibition, delayed maturity and/or leaf desiccation. Stress factors include but are not limited to the following: Daily temperatures below 65° F or above 95° F., problem soils, (i.e., Zn deficiency, high salt content, high pH.), excessive moisture, (i.e., above field capacity while rice seed is germinating), drought conditions, poor field drainage or deep water after application.

Do not apply under conditions involving possible drift to food, forage or other plantings that might be damaged or the crops thereof rendered unfit for sale, use or consumption.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

DRY-SEEDED RICE

BOLERO 8 EC applied late preemergence or BOLERO 8 EC alone or as a tank mixture with Propanil applied early postemergence will control most annual grasses and aquatic weeds in rice. BOLERO 8 EC will provide residual control of some weeds up to 5 weeks following application. Temporary injury to seedling rice may occur under certain conditions. DO NOT APPLY TO STRESSED RICE.

Apply BOLERO 8 EC alone or as a tank mixture with Propanil to dry seeded rice on a moist soil surface that has no standing water as:

Preemergence Followed by Postemergence Split Application

Apply 2 pts. per acre of BOLERO 8 EC as a late preemergence application 1 to 5 days before rice emerges (usually 5 to 9 days after seeding) and prior to weed emergence. Soil surfaces should be sealed by rain or flushing and be wet at application. The seedbed should be well prepared and free of large clods.

This application should be followed in 10 to 14 days by an early postemergence application of 2 pts. per acre of BOLERO 8 EC plus 3 lbs. of active Propanil per acre. Emerged grasses should be in the 1- to 2-leaf stage or less (Sprangletop less than 1/2 inch), aquatics less than 1/2 inch tall and broadleaf weeds less than 2 inches tall. Rice may be emerged at the time of the early postemergence application. Soil should be moist (without standing water) at the time of application.

Restricted Entry Interval

4 hours
