CROP RESIDUE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IN SOYBEANS
PRODUCT PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
Do not apply the product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application.
SPOT TREATMENTS FOR ALL USE SITES
Spot treatment restriction: Spot treatment is defined as a treatment area no greater than 1,000 sq. ft. per acre. Spot treatments are limited to 2 (two) applications per year. A maximum rate of 2.14 quarts AMINE 4 per acre (2.0 lbs ae/acre or 0.045 lb ae/1000 sq ft.) per application. Wait a minimum of 30 days between applications. Broadcast application is prohibited at this use rate. Aerial application is prohibited for spot treatments.
Use of the product in certain portions of California, Oregon, and Washington is subject to the January 22, 2004 Order for injunctive relief in Washington Toxics Coalition, et al. v. EPA, CO132C, (W.D. WA). For further information, please refer to EPA Web Site: http://www.epa.gov/espp.
Generally, the lower dosages given will be satisfactory for young, succulent growth of sensitive weed species. For less sensitive species and under conditions where control is more difficult, the higher dosages will be needed. Apply AMINE 4 during warm weather when weeds are young and growing actively. Apply a minimum of 2 gals of spray solution per acre by air or a minimum of 5 gals of spray solution per acre by ground unless directed otherwise.
Do not apply the product through any type of irrigation system.
PLANTING IN TREATED AREAS
Labeled Crops: Crops listed as use sites on this or other registered 2,4-D labels may be planted within 29 days of AMINE 4 application. Follow more specific limitations (if listed) provided in the directions for individual crops. Labeled crops may be at risk for crop injury or loss when planted soon after application, especially in the first 14 days.
Degradation factors described below should be considered in weighing this risk.
Other Crops: All other crops may be planted 30 or more days following an application without concern for illegal residues in the planted crop. However, under certain conditions, there may be a risk of injury to susceptible crops. Degradation factors described below should be considered in weighing this risk. Under normal conditions, any crop may be planted without risk of injury if at least 90 days of soil temperatures above freezing have elapsed since application.
Degradation factors: When planting into treated areas, the risk of crop injury is less if lower rates of product were applied and conditions following application have included warm, moist soil conditions that favor rapid degradation of 2,4-D. Risk is greater if higher rates of product were applied and soil temperatures have been cold and/or soils have been excessively wet or dry in the days following application.
Consult your local Agricultural Extension Service for information about susceptible crops and typical soil conditions in your area.
CROP RESIDUE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IN SOYBEANS
AMINE 4 is a phenoxy-type herbicide that provides postemergence control of many susceptible annual and perennial broadleaf weeds. AMINE 4 may be applied prior to planting soybeans to provide foliar burndown control of susceptible annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and certain broadleaf cover crops such as those listed on the label. AMINE 4 should only be applied preplant to soybeans in situations such as reduced tillage production systems, where emerged weeds are present. Apply only according to the application instructions given below. Do not use any tillage operations between application of AMINE 4 and planting of soybeans. Restrictions: Apply not less than 30 days prior to planting soybeans.
Compatible crop oil concentrates, agricultural surfactants and fluid fertilizers approved for use on growing crops may increase the herbicidal effectiveness of AMINE 4 on certain weeds and may be added to the spray tank. Read and follow all directions and precautions on the label and on the label of each product added to the spray mixture.
Apply using air or ground equipment in sufficient gallonage to obtain adequate coverage of weeds. Use 2 or more gals of water per acre in aerial equipment and 10 or more gals of spray mixture per acre for ground equipment.
In general, weeds should be small, actively growing and free of stress caused by extremes in climatic conditions, diseases, or insect damage at the time of treatment. The response of individual weeds species to AMINE 4 is variable. Consult your local county or state Agricultural Extension Service or crop consultant for advice.
Application Restrictions and Precautions
Important Notice: Unacceptable injury to soybeans planted in fields previously treated with AMINE 4 may occur. Whether or not soybean injury occurs and the extent of the injury will depend on weather (temperature and rainfall) from herbicide application until soybean emergence and agronomic factors such as the amount of weed vegetation and previous crop residue present. Injury is more likely under cool rainy conditions and where there is less weed vegetation and crop residue present at the time of application. Do not apply AMINE 4 as described on the label unless you are prepared to accept soybean injury, including loss of stand and yield.
Apply a maximum of one application per growing season regardless of the treatment rate.
Do not use on sandy soils with less than 1% organic matter.
Do not replant fields treated with AMINE 4 in the same growing season with crops other than those labeled for use with AMINE 4.
Do not apply AMINE 4 when weather conditions such as temperature air inversions or wind favor drift from treated areas to susceptible plants. Livestock Grazing Restriction: Do not feed hay, forage or fodder. Restrict livestock from grazing treated fields. Livestock should be restricted from feeding/grazing of treated cover crops.
In fields previously treated with AMINE 4, plant soybean seed as deep as practical or at least 1 inch deep. Adjust the planter, if necessary, to ensure that planted seed is completely covered.
