SOYBEANS - BROADLEAF WEEDS

General Information

INFORMATION

Ignite 280 SL Herbicide is a water-soluble herbicide for application as a foliar spray for the control of a broad spectrum of emerged annual and perennial grass and broadleaf weeds in LibertyLink canola, LibertyLink corn, LibertyLink cotton, and LibertyLink soybean. Ignite 280 SL Herbicide may also be applied as a broadcast burndown application before planting or prior to emergence of any conventional or transgenic variety of canola, corn, cotton, soybean or sugar beet.
Ignite 280 SL Herbicide is only foliar-active with little or no activity in soil. Weeds that emerge after application will not be controlled. Apply Ignite 280 SL Herbicide to actively growing weeds as described in the Weed Control Recommendations for Row Crops section to get maximum weed control. Uniform, thorough spray coverage is necessary to achieve consistent weed control. Necrosis of leaves and young shoots occur within 2 to 4 days after application under good growing conditions.

- Ignite 280 SL Herbicide is rainfast four (4) hours after application to most weed species; therefore, rainfall within four (4) hours may necessitate retreatment or may result in reduced weed control.
- Applications should be made between dawn and 2 hours before sunset to avoid the possibility of reduced lambsquarters and velvetleaf control.
- Weed control may be reduced if application is made when heavy dew, fog and mist/rain are present; or when weeds are under stress due to environmental conditions such as drought, cool temperatures or extended periods of cloudiness.
- To maximize weed control, do not cultivate from 5 days before an application to 7 days after an application.

WEED CONTROL RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ROW CROPS
Rates in ounces of formulated product per acre for the control of weeds at selected heights are shown in the weed control tables. In weed populations with mixed species, apply at a rate needed for the species that requires the highest rate.

APPLICATION AND MIXING PROCEDURES
Ground Application: Ignite 280 SL Herbicide should be applied broadcast in a minimum of 15 gallons of water per acre. Under dense weed/crop canopies, 20 to 40 gallons of water per acre should be used so that thorough spray coverage will be obtained. Apply Ignite 280 SL Herbicide using nozzles and pressures that generate MEDIUM (about 250 to 350 microns) spray droplets category as reported by the nozzle manufacturer and in accordance to ASABE S 572. Do not use nozzles and pressures that result in COARSE sprays. FINE sprays should also be avoided to minimize spray drift risk. Boom height should be based on nozzle manufacturer recommendations. See the Spray Drift Management section of this label for additional information on proper application of Ignite 280 SL Herbicide.

Aerial Application: Poor coverage will result in reduced weed control. For optimal weed control, apply Ignite 280 SL Herbicide in a minimum of 10 gallons per acre. Apply Ignite 280 SL Herbicide using nozzles and pressures that generate MEDIUM (about 300 to 400 microns) spray droplets category as reported by the nozzle manufacturer and in accordance to ASABE S 572 based upon the selected air speed. Do not use nozzles and pressures that result in COARSE sprays. FINE sprays should also be avoided to minimize spray drift risk. See the Spray Drift Management section of this label for additional information on proper application of Ignite 280 SL Herbicide.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON SOYBEANS

Apply Ignite 280 SL Herbicide only to soybean designated as LibertyLink. Uniform, thorough spray coverage is necessary to achieve consistent weed control.

APPLICATION RATE AND TIMING

For best results, apply to emerged, young, actively growing weeds. Warm temperatures, high humidity, and bright sunlight improve the performance of Ignite 280 SL Herbicide. Weed control may be reduced when applications are made to weeds under stress due to drought or cool temperatures. Adding ammonium sulfate with Ignite 280 SL Herbicide may improve weed control if weeds are under stress. For optimal yield, early season weed removal is important. Applications of Ignite 280 SL Herbicide on soybeans may be made from emergence up to but not including the bloom growth stage.

Apply Ignite 280 SL Herbicide to LibertyLink soybeans from emergence up to but not including the bloom growth stage at 22 to 29 fl oz/A. See weed chart to determine rate. Should environmental conditions prevent a timely herbicide application, a single application of up to 36 fl oz/A of Ignite 280 SL Herbicide may be made to soybeans followed by one additional application at a maximum of 29 fl oz/A with a seasonal maximum of 65 fl oz/A. Ignite 280 SL Herbicide may be applied alone, or in a tank mix application with a residual herbicide to control weeds that have not yet emerged at the time of application.

Although timely post applications of Ignite 280 SL Herbicide can provide complete weed control, residual herbicides at burndown, planting, or tank mixed with Ignite 280 SL Herbicide help ensure optimal weed management, particularly if environmental conditions delay timely post applications. Residual herbicides can also reduce early season weed competition and are a key element of good weed resistance management practices.

2nd Application: 22-29 fl oz/A

RESTRICTIONS TO THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON SOYBEANS

- DO NOT apply Ignite 280 SL Herbicide within 70 days of harvesting soybean seed.
- DO NOT apply more than 65 fl oz/A of Ignite 280 SL Herbicide on soybeans per growing season.
- DO NOT apply more than 36 fl oz/A of Ignite 280 SL Herbicide in a single application.
- DO NOT graze the treated crop or cut for hay.
- DO NOT use nitrogen solutions as spray carriers. A silicone-based antifoam agent may be added if needed.
- DO NOT apply Ignite 280 SL Herbicide if soybeans show injury from prior herbicide applications or environmental stress (drought, excessive rainfall, etc.).
- DO NOT apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
- Refer to the “Rotational Crop Restrictions” section under the “Information” heading of this label for the appropriate rotational crop plant back intervals.
