FOR USE IN CROP RESIDUE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IN SOYBEANS - NOT LESS THAN 7 DAYS

General Information

Susceptible Plants

Do not apply under circumstances where spray drift may occur to food, forage, or other plantings that might be damaged or crops thereof rendered unfit for sale, use or consumption. Susceptible crops include, but are not limited to, cotton, okra, flowers, grapes (in growing stage), fruit trees (foliage), soybeans (vegetative stage), ornamentals, sunflowers, tomatoes, beans, and other vegetables, or tobacco. Small amounts of spray drift that might not be visible may injure susceptible broadleaf plants.

Equipment

All aerial and ground application equipment must be properly maintained and calibrated using appropriate carriers or surrogates.

Additional requirements for aerial applications: The boom length must not exceed 75% of the wingspan or 90% of the rotor blade diameter. Release spray at the lowest height consistent with efficacy and flight safety. Do not release spray at a height greater than 10 feet above the crop canopy unless a greater height is required for aircraft safety. This requirement does not apply to forestry or rights-of-way applications.

When applications are made with a crosswind, the swath will be displaced downwind.

The applicator must compensate for this by adjusting the path of the aircraft upwind.

Additional requirements for ground boom application: Do not apply with a nozzle height greater than 4 feet above the crop canopy.

General Precautions: 2,4-D esters may volatilize during conditions of low humidity and high temperatures. Do not apply during conditions of low humidity and high temperatures.

GENERAL INFORMATION

LOW VOL 4 is recommended for control of numerous broadleaf weeds and certain 2,4-D susceptible woody plants without injury to most established grasses.

General Precautions: 2,4-D esters may volatilize during conditions of low humidity and high temperatures.

Do not apply during conditions of low humidity and high temperatures.

GENERAL INFORMATION

LOW VOL 4 is recommended for control of numerous broadleaf weeds and certain 2,4-D susceptible woody plants without injury to most established grasses.

NOTE: Local conditions, crop varieties and application regulations vary and may affect use of this herbicide. Consult local agricultural experiment station or extension service weed specialists and state regulatory agencies for recommendations in your area.

Aerial applications may be of use for control of weeds on certain crops where there would be no danger of drift to susceptible crops. Applications should only be made by applicators experienced in the use of 2,4-D formulations. Regulations governing aerial application of herbicides are in effect in many states. Consult local regulatory agencies concerning requirements before making applications.

Do not apply the product through any type of irrigation system.

Treating Small Areas: Two tablespoonfuls of LOW VOL 4 in 1.5 gallons of water is about equal to 1.5 quarts in 100 gallons.

TIME OF APPLICATION: Best results are obtained when LOW VOL 4 is used on young weeds that are actively growing. Applications of lower recommended rates to susceptible annual weeds usually will be satisfactory, but for perennial weeds and other conditions, such as in very dry areas where kill is difficult, use higher recommended rates. When used as a selective spray on crops, the stage of growth of the crop must be considered. Some woody plants and weeds are hard to kill and repeat applications may be necessary.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

FOR USE IN CROP RESIDUE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IN SOYBEANS

- Apply not less than 7 days prior to planting soybeans.

General Information

- LOW VOL 4 is a phenoxy-type herbicide that provides postemergence control of many susceptible annual and perennial broadleaf weeds. LOW VOL 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. LOW VOL 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. Do not use any tillage operations between application of LOW VOL 4 and planting of soybeans.

Application Procedures

- Apply using air or ground equipment in sufficient gallonage to obtain adequate coverage of weeds. Use 2 or more gallons of water per acre in aerial equipment and 10 or more gallons of spray mixture per acre for ground equipment.

Weeds Controlled

Alfalfa, Bindweed, Clover red, Dandelion, Dock curly, Garlic wild, Smartweed Pennsylvania, Thistle Canada, Vetch hairy: These species are only partially controlled.

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 LOW VOL 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 LOW VOL 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 LOW VOL 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 LOW VOL 4 in the same growing season with crops other than those labeled for use with LOW VOL 4.

- Do not apply LOW VOL 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 LOW VOL 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.

- 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, C01-0132C, (W.D. WA). For further information, please refer to EPA Web site: http://www.epa.gov/espp.
