TURFGRASS AT RESIDENTIAL SITES

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

TURFGRASS AT RESIDENTIAL SITES

Bermudagrass, Centipedegrass, St. Augustinegrass, and Zoysia Grass

Apply ATRAZINE 90 WDG HERBICIDE after October 1 before emergence of winter annual weeds for control of annual blugrass*, burclover, carpet burweed, chickweed, corn speedwell, henbit, hop clover, and spurweed. ATRAZINE 90 WDG HERBICIDE will control annual bluegrass even if it is emerged at time of treatment.

For control of summer annual weeds listed in the preemergence portion of the ATRAZINE 90 WDG HERBICIDE Applied Alone-Corn or Grain Sorghum section of the label, also apply ATRAZINE 90 WDG HERBICIDE in late winter before the weeds emerge. Apply in a minimum of 15 gals. of water per acre or 1 gal. per 1,000 sq. ft.

Where annual bluegrass is the major weed, use 1.1 lbs of ATRAZINE 90 WDG HERBICIDE per acre (0.4 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft.). Use 1.1 lbs. this product (0.4 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft.) for control of the other weeds named above. Do not exceed 1.1 lbs./A per treatment on newly sprigged turfgrass or on hybrid bermudagrass such as Tiflawn, Tifway, and Ormond.

On newly sprigged turfgrass and hybrid bermudagrass, temporary slowing of growth and yellowing may occur following application. To avoid turf injury.

(*Local resistance may result in suppression only or lack of control. Refer to IMPORTANT NOTE within GENERAL INFORMATION SECTION of the label.)

For continued summer annual weed control, apply another 1.1 lbs. this product per acre at least 30 days after the previous application, but not after April 15. However, do not make more than two applications of this product per year. Use Restrictions: 1) Do not apply more than 1.0 pound active ingredient per acre for any application, do not apply more than 2.0 pounds active ingredient per acre per year. 2) Use only on turfgrass reasonably free of infestations of insects, nematodes, and diseases. (3) Do not use on golf greens. (4) Do not use north of NC (except may be used in Virginia Coastal Plains) or west of the high rainfall areas of eastern OK and eastern TX. (5) Do not apply over the rooting area of trees or ornamentals not listed on the label. (6) Do not overseed with desirable turfgrass within 4 months before or 6 months after treatment. (7) Do not apply this product to newly seeded bermudagrass until it has overwintered and has a well-developed rhizome system. Do not exceed 2 lbs. product/A within 12 months of seeding bermudagrass.

Note: Do not graze or feed turf clippings to animals, or illegal residues may result.

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.
