ALFALFA - ESTABLISHED - GRASS/BROADLEAF WEEDS - COARSE
Treflan HFP herbicide is a selective herbicide for the preemergence control of annual grasses and broadleaf weeds. Treflan HFP may be applied in liquid sprays of water or liquid fertilizer, or impregnated on dry bulk fertilizer. To reduce loss of herbicidal activity, Treflan HFP should be soil incorporated within 24 hours after application unless otherwise specified in specific use directions or supplemental labeling. Treflan HFP may be tank mixed or followed by overlay or postemergence treatments with other herbicides to improve the spectrum of weeds controlled. Treflan HFP controls weeds by disrupting growth processes during germination. Treflan HFP does not control established weeds.
General Use Precautions
Applied according to directions and under normal growing conditions, Treflan HFP will not harm the treated crop. Over-application may result in crop injury or rotational crop damage from herbicide carryover. Uneven application or improper incorporation of Treflan HFP can result in erratic weed control or crop injury. Seedling disease, cold weather, deep planting, excessive moisture, high salt concentration, or drought may weaken crop seedlings and increase the possibility of damage from Treflan HFP. Under these conditions, delayed crop development or reduced yields may result.
Do not apply Treflan HFP to soils that are wet or are subject to prolonged periods of flooding as poor weed control may result.
Do not use Treflan HFP on any crop grown in Pecos county or Reeves county, Texas.
In Montana, uses of Treflan HFP are limited to those described in supplemental labeling. Refer to supplemental labeling for crops and specific use directions.
General: As spray volume decreases, the importance of accurate calibration and uniform application increases. Check calibration and uniformity of spray application daily. To avoid spray drift, do not apply when winds are gusting or when wind speed is greater than 15 mph.
Ground Broadcast Application
Apply Treflan HFP in 5 to 40 gallons of liquid carrier per acre (broadcast basis), using any properly calibrated, low-pressure herbicide sprayer that will apply the spray uniformly. The carrier may be water or liquid fertilizer as specified for the crop to be treated in the “Approved Crops” section of the label. For band application, adjust herbicide rate and spray volume in proportion to the band width and row width treated.
Aerial Broadcast Application
Apply Treflan HFP in 5 to 10 gallons of water per acre. Adjust pump pressure, nozzle arrangements, speed, and application height to provide uniform application to the soil surface.
Use swath markers or flaggers to assure proper swath width interval.
Preplant Incorporated Application
Treflan HFP may be applied and incorporated prior to planting when soil can be worked and is in a condition that allows thorough mixing to insure uniform incorporation. See “Approved Crops” section for application timing recommendations for specific crops.
Preemergence Application Immediately After Planting
Apply and incorporate Treflan HFP immediately after planting and prior to crop germination. Adjust incorporation equipment so as to avoid disturbance of planted seed. Refer to the “Approved Crops” section of the label for crop specific instructions.
Postemergence and Layby Application
Apply and incorporate Treflan HFP at the recommended rate to the established crop at or before the last cultivation. Required preharvest intervals for treatments with Treflan HFP for certain crops are specified in the “Approved Crops” section of the label. Crop cover may prevent uniform soil coverage from over-the-top sprays. To avoid this problem, use drop nozzles or directed sprays to achieve uniform soil coverage.

ALFALFA - ESTABLISHED
Apply Treflan HFP with ground or aerial equipment and mechanically incorporate prior to weed emergence to control weeds. Use mechanical incorporation equipment that will insure thorough soil mixing with minimal damage to crop stand.
Application Timing and Weeds Controlled
Applications to established alfalfa for annual grass control can be made during dormancy or semi-dormancy, or during the growing season immediately after a cutting. Because Treflan HFP does not control established weeds, application must be made prior to the expected time of weed germination. Bromegrass and cheat begin to germinate in the fall with the onset of cooler weather. To control these weeds, apply Treflan HFP immediately after a cutting between August 1 and October 1, but prior to weed germination. When fall applied, Treflan HFP controls bromegrass and cheat in addition to other labeled weeds that germinate after application.
- Do not cut or graze alfalfa within 21 days after application of Treflan HFP.
- Apply no more than 4.0 pints of Treflan HFP during any growing season. In the growing season following application of 4.0 pints of Treflan HFP to alfalfa, plant only those crops for which Treflan HFP is registered as a preplant treatment or crop injury may occur.
