GRASS SEED CROPS
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.
GRASS SEED CROPS
Use 1 to 4 pts per acre (.5 to 1.87 lb ae) in spring or fall to control broadleaf weeds in grass being grown for seed. Do not apply from early boot to the milk stage.
Spray seedling grass only after the five-leaf stage, using 3/4 to 1 pt per acre to control small seedling weeds. After the grass is well established, higher rates of up to 4 pts can be used to control hard-to-kill annual or perennial weeds. For best results, apply when soil moisture is adequate for good growth. The maximum seasonal rate is 3.0 lbs ae/acre, excluding spot treatments.
Note: Do not use on bentgrass unless grass injury can be tolerated. Do not graze dairy animals on treated areas within 7 days after application. Do not graze meat animals on treated areas within 3 days before slaughter. Do not cut treated grass for hay within 30 days after application.
