AQUATIC SITES - WOODY BRUSH AND TREES

General Information

USE INFORMATION:

- This product mixes readily with water and is intended to be applied as a foliar spray for the control or destruction of many herbaceous or woody plants. It may be applied through most standard industrial or field-type sprayers after dilution and thorough mixing with water in accordance with label instructions.

- This product moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system. Visible effects on most annual weeds occur within 2 to 4 days, but on most perennial weeds may not occur for 7 days or more. Extremely cool or cloudy weather following treatment may slow activity of this product and delay visual effects of control.

- Visible effects are gradual wilting and yellowing of the plant which advances to complete browning of above-ground growth and deterioration of underground plant parts. Unless otherwise specified on the label, delay application until vegetation has emerged and reached the growth stages described for control. Unemerged plants arising from unattached underground rhizomes or root stocks of perennials will not be affected by the herbicide and will continue to grow. For this reason, best control of most perennial weeds is obtained when treatment is made at late growth stages approaching maturity.

- Always use the higher rate of this product per acre within the specified range when weed growth is heavy or dense.

- Do not treat weeds under poor growing conditions such as drought stress, disease or insect damage, as reduced weed control may result. Reduced results may also occur when treating weeds heavily covered with dust.

- Reduced control may result when applications are made to annual or perennial weeds that have been mowed, grazed, or cut, and have not been allowed to regrow to the recommended stage for treatment.

- Rainfall or irrigation occurring within 6 hours after application may reduce effectiveness. Heavy rainfall or irrigation within 2 hours after application may wash the chemical off the foliage and a repeat treatment may be required.

- This product does not provide residual weed control. For subsequent residual weed control, follow a label-approved herbicide program. Read and carefully observe the cautionary statements and all other information appearing on the labels of all herbicides used.

- Buyer and all users are responsible for all loss or damage in connection with the use or handling of mixtures of this product with herbicides or other materials that are not expressly recommended in the labeling. Mixing this product with herbicides or other materials not recommended on the label may result in reduced performance.

- For best results, spray coverage should be uniform and complete.

USE PRECAUTIONS:

- AVOID DRIFT. EXTREME CARE MUST BE USED WHEN APPLYING THIS PRODUCT TO PREVENT INJURY TO DESIRABLE PLANTS AND CROPS.

- Do not allow the herbicide solution to mist, drip, drift or splash onto desirable vegetation since minute quantities of this product can cause severe damage or destruction to the crop, plants, or nontarget areas on which treatment was not intended.

- The likelihood of injury occurring from the use of this product is greatest when winds are gusty or in excess of 5 miles per hour or when other conditions, including lesser wind velocities, will allow spray drift to occur. When spraying, avoid combinations of pressure and nozzle types that will result in splatter or fine particles (mist) which are likely to drift.

- AVOID APPLYING AT EXCESSIVE SPEED OR PRESSURE. - NOTE: Use of this product in any manner not consistent with the label may result in injury to persons, animals or crops, or other unintended consequences. Keep container closed to prevent spills and contamination.

ANNUAL MAXIMUM USE RATE:

For non-crop uses, the combined total of all treatments must not exceed 10.6 quarts of this product per acre per year. The maximum rates stated on this product labeling apply to this product combined with the use of all other herbicides containing glyphosate or sulfosate as the active ingredient. Calculate the application rates and ensure that the total use of this and other glyphosate or sulfosate containing products does not exceed stated maximum use rates.

For crop uses, the combined total of all treatments must not exceed 8 quarts of this product per acre.

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES:

Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

This product may be applied with the following application equipment:

- Do not apply this product using aerial spray equipment (fixed wing or helicopter).

- Ground equipment only

- Power sprayers fitted with a boom or spray wand/gun may be used for broadcast applications and spot treatments. For best spray distribution and coverage, select a spray volume and delivery system that will ensure accurate and uniform coverage. Boom sprayers equipped with appropriate flat fan nozzles, tips, and screens are suitable for broadcast applications.

Spray volumes of 3 - 30 gallons per acre with spray pressures adjusted to 20 - 40 psi are appropriate. Use higher spray volumes within the recommended range for dense weed populations.

- Controlled droplet appIicator (CDA) - The rate of this product applied per acre by vehicle-mounted CDA equipment must not be less than the amount recommended in the label when applied by conventional broadcast equipment. For vehicle-mounted CDA equipment, apply 3 to 15 gallons of water per acre. Do not apply as a fine mist. Use coarse sprays only.

Controlled droplet application equipment produces a spray pattern which is not easily visible. Extreme care must be exercised to avoid spray or drift contacting the foliage or any other green tissue of desirable vegetation, as damage or destruction may result.

- Selective equipment - Recirculating sprayers, shielded and hooded sprayers, wiper applicators and sponge bars.

- Wiper applicators and sponge bars - Wiper applicators are devices that physically wipe appropriate amounts of this product directly onto the weed.

- Rope or sponge wick applicators - Mix 1.0 - 1.25 gallons of this product in 2 gallons of water to prepare a 33 - 38% solution. Apply this solution to weeds listed in this section.

- Porous-Plastic Applicators - Solutions ranging from 38 - 100% of this product in water may be used in porous-plastic wiper applicators.

- Hand-held and high-volume spray equipment - knapsack and backpack sprayers, pump-up pressure sprayers, spray guns, handwands, lances and other hand-held and motorized spray equipment used to direct the spray onto weed foliage. Applications should be made on a spray-to-wet basis, spray coverage should be uniform and complete. Use only coarse sprays.

SPRAY PREPARATION FOR APPLICATIONS WITH HAND-HELD HIGH VOLUME EQUIPMENT:

Specific use instructions for annuals, perennials, woody brush, and trees are presented in the section named WEEDS CONTROLLED.

Identify the target weed species, note the weed growth stages and select the appropriate spray concentration presented in WEEDS CONTROLLED.

Spray concentrations for application with high volume equipment made on a spray-to-wet basis range from 1.0 - 3.0% vol/vol. Use the lower spray concentrations in the range for annual weeds and the higher spray concentration for perennial and hard-to-control species. The spray preparation chart for applications on a spray-to-wet basis is shown in Table 1 of the label.

When using application methods that result in less than complete coverage, use a 7.0% spray concentration for annual and perennial weeds and a 7.0 - 11.0% spray concentration for woody brush and trees.

If a straight-stream nozzle is used, start the application at the top of the target vegetation and spray from top to bottom in a “zig-zag” motion.

Ensure that at least 50% of the leaf surface is contacted by the spray.

Small open-branched trees need only be treated from one side. If foliage is thick or there are multiple root sprouts, application must be made from several sides to ensure adequate coverage.

The spray preparation chart for these applications is shown in Table 2 of the label.

Refer in the label for tank mix information.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

WOODY BRUSH TREES

When applied as recommended under the conditions described, this product CONTROLS or PARTIALLY CONTROLS the woody brush, plants and trees listed in the label.

NOTE: If brush has been mowed or tilled or trees have been cut, do not treat until regrowth has reached the recommended stages of growth.

Apply this product when plants are actively growing and, unless otherwise directed, after full leaf expansion. Use the higher rate for larger plants and/or dense areas of growth. On vines, use the higher rate for plants that have reached the woody stage of growth. Best results are obtained when application is made in late summer or fall after fruit formation.

In arid areas, best results are obtained when application is made in the spring to early summer when brush species are at high moisture content and are flowering.

This product may be used as a broadcast treatment or spot treatment for woody brush and trees with any of the application equipment listed on the label in noncropland sites.

Generally, the lower application rates within the specified range will provide satisfactory control of sensitive weed species. The higher application rates within the specified range will be required for dense infestations, for adverse/extreme environmental conditions, or for weeds beyond the appropriate growth stages.

Specific use recommendations for certain woody brush and trees are presented in the following section.

Ensure thorough coverage when using hand-held equipment.

Symptoms may not appear prior to frost or senescence with fall treatments.

Allow 7 or more days after application before tillage, mowing or removal.

Repeat treatments may be necessary to control plants regenerating from underground parts or seed. Some autumn colors on undesirable deciduous species are acceptable provided no major leaf drop has occurred. Reduced performance may result if fall treatments are made following a frost.

Applied as a 7.0-11.0% solution as a directed application as described in the HAND-HELD AND HIGH-VOLUME EQUIPMENT section, this product will control or partially control all the species listed in this section of the label. Use the higher rate for dense stands and larger woody brush and trees.

AQUATIC SITES

This product may be applied to emerged weeds in all bodies of fresh and brackish water which may be flowing, non-flowing, or transient. This includes lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, estuaries, irrigation and drainage ditches, canals, wildlife habitat restoration and management areas, and similar sites including the following:

- Aquatic food crop: Agricultural drainage systems, irrigation systems, lakes/ponds (with human or wildlife use) stream/rivers/channeled water, drainage ditches, canals, irrigation ditches, estuaries.

- Aquatic non-food outdoor: aquatic areas/water, ditches, ditch banks If aquatic sites are present in the non-crop area and are part of the intended treatment, read and observe the following directions:

This product does not control plants which are completely submerged or have a majority of foliage under water.

There is no restriction on the use of treated water for irrigation, recreation, or domestic purposes.

Consult local State fish and game agency and water control authorities before applying this product to public waters. Permits may be required to treat such water.

NOTE: Do not apply this product within 1/2 mile upstream of an active potable water intake in flowing water (i.e. river, stream, etc.) or within 1/2 mile of an active potable water intake in a standing body of water such as lake, pond, or reservoir. To make aquatic applications around and within 1/2 mile of active potable water intakes the water intake must be turned off for a minimum period of 48 hours after the application.

The water intake may be turned on prior to 48 hours if the glyphosate level in the intake water is below 0.7 parts per million as determined by laboratory analysis. These aquatic applications may be made ONLY in those cases where there are alternative water sources or holding ponds which would permit the turning off of an active potable water intake for a minimum period of 48 hours after the applications. This restriction does not apply to intermittent inadvertent overspray of water in terrestrial use sites.

For treatments after drawdown of water or in dry ditches, allow 7 or more days after treatment before reintroduction of water to achieve maximum weed control. Apply this product within 1 day after drawdown to ensure application to actively growing weeds.

Floating mats of vegetation may require retreatment. Do not retreat within 24 hours following the initial treatment. Applications made to moving bodies of water must be made while traveling upstream to prevent concentration of this herbicide in water. When making any bankside applications, do not overlap more than 1 foot into open water.

Do not spray in bodies of water where weeds do not exist.

The maximum application rate of 10.6 pints per acre must not be exceeded in any single broadcast application that is being made over water.

When emerged infestations require treatment of the total surface area of impounded water, treating the area in strips may avoid oxygen depletion due to decaying vegetation. Oxygen depletion may result in fish kill.

Restricted Entry Interval
