SORGHUM AND SORGHUM-SUDAN HYBRIDS (GRAIN AND FORAGE TYPES) - HIGHLY ERODIBLE

General Information

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Atrazine 90 WDG Herbicide controls many annual broadleaf and grass weeds in the crops included on the label. Atrazine 90 WDG Herbicide may be applied before or after weeds emerge.

Important Note: Following many years of continuous use of this product and chemically related products, biotypes of some of the weeds listed on the label have been reported which cannot be effectively controlled by this and related herbicides. These weeds may include lambsquarters, pigweed, black nightshade, kochia, and others. Where this is known or suspected, we recommend the use of this product in combination with other registered herbicides which are not triazines. Consult your State Agricultural Extension Service about specific weed resistance to atrazine in your area and weed control recommendations. Within the specific crop directions on the label, certain weeds are indicated for suppression only. Weed suppression is a visual reduction in weed competition (reduced population and/or vigor) as compared to an untreated area. Degree of suppression will vary with rate used, size of weeds, and environmental conditions following treatment.

In each case where a range of rates is given, the lower rate should be used on light soils and soils low in organic matter, and the higher rate should be used on heavy soils high in organic matter.

Since Atrazine 90 WDG Herbicide acts mainly through root absorption, its effectiveness depends on rainfall or irrigation to move it into the root zone. Should weeds develop, a shallow cultivation or rotary hoeing will generally result in better weed control. Care should be taken to avoid using Atrazine 90 WDG Herbicide where adjacent desirable trees, shrubs, or plants might be injured.

Note: Loveland Products Inc. does not recommend the use of Atrazine 90 WDG Herbicide in combination with other herbicides or oils except as specifically described on the label or supplemental labeling distributed by Loveland Products, Inc.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Ground application: Use conventional ground sprayers equipped with nozzles that provide accurate and uniform application. Be certain that nozzles are uniformly spaced and are the same size. Calibrate sprayer before use and recalibrate at the start of each season and when changing carriers. Unless otherwise specified, use a minimum of 10.0 gallons of spray mixture per acre for all preplant incorporated, preplant surface, preemergence, and postemergence applications (with or without oil or surfactant) with ground equipment.

Refer to the label for band application.

APPLICATION RESTRICTIONS

Aerial application is prohibited. Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system. When tank-mixing or sequentially applying atrazine or products containing atrazine to corn or sorghum, the total pounds atrazine applied (pounds active ingredient per acre) must not exceed 2.5 pounds active ingredient per acre per year.

When tank-mixing or sequentially applying atrazine or products containing atrazine to crops other than corn or sorghum, the total pounds of atrazine applied (pounds active ingredient per acre) must not exceed the specific seasonal rate limits as noted in the use directions.

Aerial application is prohibited.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

SORGHUM AND SORGHUM-SUDAN HYBRIDS (GRAIN AND FORAGE TYPES)

Postemergence applications to sorghum must be made before sorghum reaches 12 inches in height.

ATRAZINE 90 WDG HERBICIDE may be applied before planting, at planting or after planting, subject to maximum rate limitations.

Use only on medium and fine textured soils having a minimum of 1% organic matter, except as separately recommended for furrow-irrigated bedded sorghum grown in Arizona and California.

Preplant Surface-Applied (Broadleaf and grass control): Use on medium- and fine-textured soils with minimum-tillage or no-tillage systems only in CO, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, MN, MO, MT, NE, ND, SD, WI, AND WY. Apply 2/3 the recommended rate of ATRAZINE 90 WDG HERBICIDE shown in Table 3 for the soil texture as a split treatment 30-45 days prior to planting and the remainder at planting. Applications made less than 30 days prior to planting may be as either a split or single treatment. Under dry conditions, irrigation after application is recommended to move ATRAZINE 90 WDG HERBICIDE into the soil.

If weeds are present at time of treatment, apply in a tank mix combination with a contact herbicide (for example, paraquat [Gramoxone Inteon] or glyphosate [Makaze]). Observe directions for use, precautions, and restrictions on the label of the contact herbicide.

Note: To the extent possible, do not move treated soil out of the row or move untreated soil to the surface during planting, or weed control will be diminished.

Preplant Incorporated (Broadleaf and grass control): Broadcast in spring after plowing at rate shown in Table 3. Apply before, during, or after final seedbed preparation. If soil is tilled or worked after applications, avoid deep incorporation. For best results, apply within two weeks prior to planting.

Preemergence or At-planting (Broadleaf and grass control): Apply during or shortly after planting, but prior to weed or crop emergence.

Soil Erodibility Classification: As defined by the Natural Resource Conservation Service

Do not apply preplant surface or preplant incorporated in AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, NM, OK, SC, TN, or TX. Do not apply preemergence in NM, OK, or TX, except in northeast OK and the TX Gulf Coast. In case of planting failure, sorghum or corn may be replanted. Do not make a second broadcast application, or injury may occur. If originally applied in a band and sorghum or corn is replanted in untreated row middles, this product may be applied in a band to the second planting provided the maximum application rate of 2.5 lbs. a.i. this product per acre atrazine per calendar year is not exceeded.

Restricted Entry Interval

12 hours

Exception: if the product is soil injected or soil incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
