Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

ESTABLISHED TURF

General Information

Basagran T/O herbicide may be used on established bluegrass, fescue, bentgrass, Bermudagrass, bahiagrass, centipedegrass, zoysiagrass, ryegrass, St. Augustinegrass, carpetgrass, and buffalograss.

Basagran T/O is intended for selective postemergence control of broadleaf weeds, annual sedges, and yellow nutsedge. Basagran T/O does not control grasses. Basagran T/O is effective mainly through contact, therefore, all plants must be thoroughly covered with spray.

Weeds controlled by Basagran T/O in turf include annual sedges, yellow nutsedge, wild mustard, dayflower, common groundsel, and common purslane. For other weeds controlled by Basagran T/O in turf, see Table 2 in the label.

Application Information

Apply Basagran T/O herbicide postemergently to actively growing weeds under good soil moisture conditions. If desired control of yellow nutsedge or Canada thistle is not obtained with the first application, make a second application 10-14 days later or when new growth appears. In the northern United States, yellow nutsedge can emerge from May through July, while in the southern United States, nutsedge and broadleaf weeds can emerge throughout the year. Therefore, initial applications should be planned when most plants have emerged. If new plants emerge later in the season, make a second application of Basagran T/O according to the label directions. In unmowed turf, make the first application after emergence but before yellow nutsedge, annual sedge, and Canada thistle are 8 inches tall.

Annual broadleaf weeds should be no taller than 4 inches. Thorough spray coverage of yellow nutsedge is essential for maximum control. For optimum control, do not mow within 3 days before or after application.

For sedges, do not mow within 5 days of application. Use a minimum water volume of 1 gallon per 1,000 square feet (40 gallons per acre) with a minimum pressure measured at the nozzle of 40 psi.

Application Rate: See Table 1 for application rate of Basagran T/O.

RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS

Do not apply Basagran T/O herbicide to turf that has been under stress such as drought, cold temperature or injury from other herbicides or pesticides.

Do not apply Basagran T/O to any newly seeded or newly sprigged turf until seedlings or sprigs are well established, as injury may result.

Not recommended for use on golf course greens or collars.

In perennial ryegrass, apply no more than 0.75 fluid ounces per 1,000 square feet (2 pints per acre) at one time and make subsequent applications no less than 21 days later.

Do not apply more than 1.5 fluid ounces of Basagran T/O per 1000 square feet (4 pints per acre) in one season.

Do not exceed a total of 1 pound of active ingredient (bentazon) per acre per application or 2 pounds of active ingredient (bentazon) per acre per season. One pint of Basagran T/O contains 0.5 pound of bentazon and one pint of Prompt 5L herbicide contains 0.3125 pound of bentazon.

Do not exceed a total of 0.367 ounce of active ingredient (bentazon) per 1,000 square feet per application or 0.73 ounce of active ingredient (bentazon) per 1,000 square feet per season. One fluid ounce of Basagran T/O contains 0.5 ounce of bentazon and one fluid ounce of Prompt 5L contains 0.3125 ounce of bentazon.

Rainfall or sprinkler irrigation within 8 hours after application may reduce the effectiveness of Basagran T/O.

Physical incompatibility, reduced weed control or turf injury may result from mixing Basagran T/O with pesticides (fungicides, herbicides, insecticides or miticides), additives or fertilizers.

Micro Flo does not recommend using Basagran T/O tank mixes other than those listed on Micro Flo labels, supplemental labeling, or technical bulletins. Local professional authorities may be a source of information when using other than Micro Flo recommended combinations. Otherwise, test a small area of the site with the desired tank mix combination and allow 7-10 days to evaluate the potential for injury. Do not apply Basagran T/O plus an oil concentrate with other pesticides whose labels caution against their use with oil adjuvants. Clean the sprayer thoroughly before applying Basagran T/0, particularly if a herbicide with the potential to injure the turf to be sprayed with Basagran T/O was previously used. When treating turf with Basagran T/0, avoid over-the-top spraying of adjacent ornamental trees, shrubs. and flowers unless otherwise recommended in the label. Spraying near the base of established ornamental trees, shrubs, and flowers should not result in injury except for sycamore and rhododendron.

Note:

a. For yellow nutsedge, apply no more than 0.75 fluid ounces per 1,000 square feet (2 pints per acre) at one time. Make a second application 10-14 days later. Apply no more than 1.5 fluid ounces per 1,000 square feet (4 pints per acre) in one season. For perennial ryegrass, apply no more than 0.75 fluid ounces per 1,000 square feet (2 pints per acre) at one time. Make a second application no less than 21 days later.

b. Quantity of water required to uniformly spray this area with your sprayer. If unknown, refer to Section Sprayer Calibration Suggestions.
