HERBACEOUS PLANTS - ANNUAL WEEDS
Apply this product only as specified on the label. Do not apply by aerial application.
This product is formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate containing 7.0 pounds of active EPTC per gallon.
This product is a selective soil applied herbicide for preemergence control of many annual and perennial grasses, broadleaf weeds and sedges as they germinate, but it will not control established weeds. Established weeds should be controlled before applying this product or by use of an appropriate postemergence herbicide in a tank mix combination treatment with this product.
When applied as a spray to the soil surface this product must be incorporated immediately after application. Ideally, application and incorporation should be done simultaneously. Incorporation prevents loss of the herbicide to evaporation. This product may be tank mixed with any product having the same crop use and restrictions allowing co-application. This product treatments may be followed by any registered herbicide for additional weed control.
Follow this product label directions carefully. Over application can result in crop stand loss, crop injury, or excessive soil residues. Uneven application, improper soil incorporation, or soil incorporation deeper than recommended can decrease weed control and/or cause crop injury.
Seedling diseases, cold weather, excessive moisture, shallow or deep planting, low or high soil pH, high soil salt concentration, or drought can weaken seedlings and plants and increase the possibility of crop damage and/or reduced crop yields from use of this product.
To assure uniform application, mix the prescribed amount of this product with a sufficient volume of water to provide thorough coverage of target area. Follow the recommendations given in the “APPLICATION” section of the label.
See label for mixing instructions.
APPLICATION SPRAY VOLUME
Apply this product in 10 to 50 gallons of water (20 or more gallons of liquid fertilizer) per acre with conventional spray equipment. Increase spray volumes when treating dense weed foliage or fields containing excessive crop residues to increase penetration and coverage.
Band applications should be equivalent to the broadcast rate and application volume per acre.
DO NOT apply this product if wind velocity is high enough to cause drift of the application spray off the target site or irregular spray patterns.
Choose spray nozzles capable of producing spray droplets able to maintain good foliage coverage and weed control. Avoid using nozzles and excessive spray boom pressure that may increase the formation of fine droplets most likely to drift.
SUBSURFACE INJECTION APPLICATION
Apply this product in 10 or more gallons of water per acre.
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT DESIGNED FOR SUBSURFACE APPLICATION MUST BE USED. Injector and sweep units must be rigidly mounted on the planter or cultivation unit. When using sweeps at planting they must be mounted ahead of the planters.
SOIL INJECTION: Injector shanks must be spaced 2.5 to 3 inches apart and mounted in staggered positions to avoid trash buildup. Set shanks to inject this product 2 to 3 inches below the soil surface. The width of the band in which weed control is desired will determine the number and spacing of injector shanks required per row. (Example: Four injector shanks spaced 3 inches apart give a 12-inch band.) A broadcast application can be made by increasing the number of shanks. The two shanks adjacent to the drill row must be 1.25 to 1.5 inches on either side of it, EXCEPT IN COTTON WHERE THE DISTANCE MUST BE 4 INCHES ON EITHER SIDE OF THE DRILL ROW, AND SUGAR BEETS WHERE THE DISTANCE MUST BE 2.75 INCHES ON EITHER SIDE OF THE DRILL ROW.
COVERED SWEEPS: Set the sweeps to run below the soil surface deep enough to cover this product with 2 to 3 inches of soil. Calibrate by measuring the spray band width at the back of the sweep, not sweep width. For broadcast applications, stagger sweeps on double tool bar so they overlap sufficiently to allow spray bands to meet. NOTE: When applying with either injectors or sweeps, this product must be applied deep enough to allow 2 to 3 inches of soil to remain over the treatment after planting operations.
APPLICATION WITH DRY FERTILIZERS
This product may be applied via dry fertilizers impregnated with this product and incorporated in the soil before planting for the control of grass and broadleaf weeds. See Tables on the label for examples of approved dry fertilizers and rates of application.
See label for chemigation information application instructions.
Follow the recommended rates as directed in the specific crop sections of the label. Use higher label rates when heavy weed populations are anticipated or excessive crop litter remains in the field prior to seedbed preparation or application.
Some rates are dependant upon the different growing conditions found in the United States. Use rates for some crops may vary between regions, check specific crop sections of the label for rate in geographic area treatment is to be made.
Soil Preparation: The soil to be treated should be loose and free of clods. All weed growth should be removed or thoroughly worked into the soil before application.
Application: The recommended rate of this product should be applied as uniformly as possible. Apply to well-worked soil that is dry enough to permit thorough mixing with incorporation equipment. When treating around established plants, direct spray to soil surface for maximum coverage. Use one of the following appropriate means of application:
Low Pressure Herbicide Sprayer: For broadcast application, use 10 to 50 gallons of water per acre. For band application (in front of power tiller), use less water depending upon row spacing and width of band desired. Check pressure and nozzles frequently to assure uniform application.
Hose Proportioner: Make sure proportioner is working properly. A more uniform application can be made by applying half the required amount of this product over the area to be treated, then applying the remainder at right angles or crosswise.
Knapsack Sprayer: Apply as suggested for the hose proportioner.
Soil (mixing) Incorporation: Immediately after application, thoroughly mix this product into the soil to a depth of 2 to 3 inches. Mix to a depth of 6 inches for Nutsedge, Quackgrass, Bermudagrass and Chrysanthemumweed (mugwort) control. Thorough soil mixing is necessary for good weed control.
Use the following equipment or other equipment which has proven satisfactory under local conditions. For Commercial Nursery, use nursery cultivator or rototillers for preplant broadcast (overall) applications, preplant band applications, and postplant applications.
NOTE: All flowering bulbs, Salvia, Phlox, Snap-dragon and Ornamental pepper are susceptible to injury from an application of this product.
This product must be thoroughly mixed into the soil for all Ornamental uses.
This product may cause injury to Ornamentals under certain soil and climatic conditions or if directions are not followed.
- Black Nightshade, Cutleaf Nightshade, Hairy Nightshade, Common Lambquarters, Prickly Sida, Sicklepod: May not be controlled at less than 4.5 pints of this product per acre.
- The annual broadleaf weeds listed will be controlled only if treatment is made when conditions are favorable for weed germination and growth. Broadleaf weeds may only be suppressed at less than 3.5 pints this product per acre in heavier soils or under very cold soil conditions.
