SMALL GRAINS - PREHARVEST TREATMENT

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.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

LOW VOL 6 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.

Apply when weeds are young and actively growing. For ground application, apply a minimum of 5 gallons of spray solution per acre.

Aerial application may be of use for control of weeds on certain crops where there would be no danger of drift to susceptible crops. Apply a minimum of 2 gallons of spray solution per acre.

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 this product through any type of irrigation system.

Treating Small Areas: One tablespoonful of LOW VOL 6 in 1 1/2 gallons of water is about equal to 1 quart in 100 gallons.

TIME OF APPLICATION: Best results are obtained when LOW VOL 6 is used on young weeds that are actively growing. Application of lower 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 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.

PLANTING IN TREATED AREAS

Labeled Crops: Within 29 days following an application of this product, plant only those crops named as use sites on this or other registered 2,4-D labels. Follow more specific limitations, if any, 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.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

SMALL GRAINS

Restrictions: The preharvest interval (PHI) is 14 days. Limited to 2.5 pts. product/A (1.75 lbs ae/A) per crop cycle.

Postemergence: Limited to one postemergence application per crop cycle. Do not exceed a maximum of 1.7 pints product/acre (1.25 lb ae/acre) per application.

Preharvest: Limited to one preharvest application per crop cycle. Do not exceed a maximum of 0.7 pts. product/A (0.5 lbs ae/A) per application.

Preharvest Treatment: Apply 0.65 to 0.7 pints per acre (.46 to .5 lb ae/acre) when grains are in the hard dough stage to control large weeds that may interfere with harvest. Best results will be obtained when soil moisture is sufficient to cause succulent weed growth. NOTE: Do not feed treated straw to livestock.
