Do not apply this 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.

Do not use this product on or near desirable plants, including within the drip line of the roots of desirable trees and shrubs, since injury may result. Do not apply directly to or near water, storm drains, gutters, sewers, or drainage ditches. Do not apply within 25 feet of rivers, fishponds, lakes, streams, reservoirs, marshes, estuaries, bays and oceans. Do not apply when windy.

SOD FARMS

Mec Amine-D is intended for use on sod farms. Mec Amine-D provides selective broadleaf control in warm season and cool season turfgrass established for commercial sod production.

Application Schedules for Sod Farms

Apply Mec Amine-D to broadleaf weeds that are actively growing. Follow-up applications may be required for dense infestations of perennial and biennial weeds. Do not apply this product to \"Floratam\" St. Augustinegrass.

Newly Seeded Areas

The application of Mec Amine-D to grass seedlings is recommended after the second mowing.

Newly Sodded, Sprigged or Plugged Areas

The application Mec Amine-D to newly sodded, sprigged, or plugged grasses should be delayed until 3 to 4 weeks after the sodding, sprigging, or plugging operations. Also, applications to dormant bermudagrass, dormant zoysiagrass, and dormant bahiagrass are suggested.

Use Precautions and Limitations for Sod Farms

1. Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

2. Avoid drift of spray mist onto vegetables, flowers, ornamental plants, shrubs, trees, and other desirable plants. Do not pour spray solutions near these plants.

3. Delay mowing 1 to 2 days before and after the application of this product.

4. Do not apply this product immediately before rainfall or irrigation. Do not irrigate or water the turfgrass within 24 hours after application.

5. Treated areas may be reseeded 3 to 4 weeks after application.

6. Limited to 2 applications per year.

7. Do not exceed a maximum of 6.5 pints Mec Amine-D (2.0 lbs ae 2,4-D /acre) per application.

8. Observe a minimum of 30 days between applications.

USE PRECAUTION

Do not apply this product to St. Augustine grass. Care should be taken to avoid overdosing bentgrass as injury may result. Some hybrid bermudagrass may be sensitive to this product. Contact your local Extension Service Weed Control Specialist for sensitive grasses in your area. Large volumes of spray water (i.e. one fluid ounce in 5 gallons water per 1,500 square feet) will aid in obtaining uniform coverage. If hand-type sprayers are used, it is preferable to use a single nozzle sprayer rather than a multiple nozzle boom as sideways application with a boom where the spray from more than one nozzle is allowed to fall on the same area will result in heavy local over-application and subsequent turf discoloration or injury.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

ORNAMENTAL AND RECREATIONAL LAWNS AND TURF

- Mec Amine D is for use on Ornamental Turf Lawns (Residential, Industrial and Institutional), Parks, Cemeteries, Athletic Fields and Golf Courses (Fairways, Aprons, Tees and Roughs) and similar turf areas. Institutional sites are defined as turf areas around properties or facilities providing a service to public or private organizations including, but not limited to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, museums, libraries, sport facilities, golf courses, and office buildings. Ornamental sites include turfgrass established around residences, parks, streets, retail outlets, cemeteries, industrial and institutional buildings. Finally, residential/domestic sites are defined as areas associated with the household or home life including, but not limited to apartment complexes, condominiums, and patient care areas of nursing homes, mental intuitions, hospitals, or convalescent homes.

- A quality adjuvant such as LI 700 or Liberate may be included in the spray solution.

- Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

- Not for use on turf being grown for sale of other commercial use as sod, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.

- Limited to 2 applications per year.

- Use a maximum of 4.9 pts Mec Amine-D/acre (1.5 lbs ae 2,4-D/acre) per application.

- The maximum seasonal rate is 9.8 pts Mec Amine-D/acre (3.0 lbs ae 2,4-D/acre), excluding spot treatments.

- Do not enter or allow people (or pets) to enter the treated area until sprays have dried.

- Do not apply this 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.

Warm Season Grasses:

Use 40 to 200 gallons of water per acre (1 to 5 gallons of water per 1000 sq.ft.). Use reduced rates if grass is stressed from heat or drought. Exercise care when applying during growth stages from dormancy to green-up and from green-up to dormancy. Some temporary discoloration may occur on warm season grasses.

NOTE: If Bermudagrass is dormant, up to 4 pints per acre may be used (1.5 fl. oz./1000 sq.ft.). However, some hybrid Bermudagrasses may be sensitive to this product. Contact your local extension service weed control specialist.

NOTE: Care should be taken to avoid overdosing Bentgrass, St. Augustine, and Centipede grasses or injury may result. Large volumes of spray water (i.e. one fluid ounce in 5 gallons of water per 1,500 square feet) will aid in obtaining uniform coverage. If hand-type sprayers are used, it is preferable to use a single nozzle sprayer rather than a multiple nozzle boom as sideways application with a boom where the spray from more than one nozzle is allowed to fall on the same area will result in heavy local over-application and subsequent turf discoloration or injury.

Lower Volume Equipment: Use as little as 5 gallons of water per acre. Use only application equipment that is capable of spreading a uniform droplet, wetting each weed surface.
