ANNUAL AND PERENNIAL WEEDS PARTIALLY CONTROLLED (HIGHER RATES AND/OR REPEAT APPLICATION MAY BE NEEDED)
Local conditions and application method may affect performance of this product. User should consult local extension service, agricultural experiment station, or university weed specialists, and state regulatory agencies for recommendations in your area.
Best results are obtained when product is applied to young succulent weeds that are actively growing. Application rates lower than recommended will not be satisfactory on susceptible annual weeds. For perennial weeds, the higher recommended rates should be used. Some plants and weeds, especially woody varieties, are hard to control and may require repeat applications. Application rates should be 1 to 5 gallons of total spray by air or 5 to 25 gallons by ground equipment unless otherwise directed. In either case, use the same amount of SINKERBALL per acre. SINKERBALL should not be allowed to come into contact with susceptible desirable species. If stored below freezing, it may be necessary to warm product to 40ºF and agitate before using. This does not affect the efficiency of the product. Spray equipment used to apply SINKERBALL or other products containing 2,4-D should not be used for any other purpose until thoroughly cleaned with a suitable chemical cleaner.
See label for mixing ang tank mix information application instructions.
Use calibrated spray equipment for all types of applications to assure applying the recommended amount of spray mixture per acre. Use sufficient spray volume within the ranges specified to obtain good coverage of weeds. SINKERBALL is absorbed sufficiently within 1 hour after application to provide adequate weed control.
Ground Broadcast Spray: Unless otherwise specified in the appropriate crop or non-crop directions, apply in 5 or more gallons of spray solution per acre. Use enough spray volume to provide uniform coverage of weeds, taking into account the amount of vegetation present and the type of application equipment to be used. As weed density increase, a higher spray volume may be needed for equivalent coverage and weed control. Typical applications utilize 10 to 50 gallons of spray solution per acre, while certain high volume applications may utilize more than 100 gallons per acre. Use coarse sprays to minimize potential spray drift. Do not apply with hollow cone nozzles or other nozzles that produce fine spray droplets. Boom spraying with flat fan or low volume nozzles is generally most suitable for ground broadcast applications.
Aerial Broadcast Spray: Unless otherwise specified in the directions, apply in 1 to 5 gallons of spray solution per acre. For best coverage and weed control, as well as reduced potential for spray drift, a minimum of 3 gallons per acre is suggested. Avoid using nozzles or nozzle configurations that generate fine droplets. One configuration usually found to be suitable includes straight stream nozzles (such as disk with no swirl plate) directed straight back along the wind stream. Mechanical flagging or GPS (Global Positioning Systems) is suggested to obtain more uniform application.
