General Information

PREPARATION OF SPRAY AND APPLICATION: Recommended quantities of this product should be added to water in the spray tank at time of application. Agitate or stir to assure a good mixture and continue some agitation during application. The quantity of spray solution to make up will depend upon the equipment to be used. When using a low volume sprayer, the proper dosage should be applied in at least 15 gallons of water per acre, although as little as 5 to 10 gallons per acre have been used successfully in certain instances. When using a high pressure sprayer, apply in 150 to 200 gallons of water per acre. For aerial application, apply in 1 to 5 gallons of water per acre. Always use the proper amount of 2,4-D Amine Weed Killer per unit area regardless of the quantity of water.

Do not apply with hollow cone-type insecticide or other nozzles that produce fine spray droplets. Drift from aerial or ground application may be reduced by: (1) applying as near to the target as possible in order to obtain coverage; (2) by increasing the volume of spray mix per acre; (3) by decreasing the pounds of pressure at the nozzle tips; (4) by using nozzles which produce a coarse spray pattern; and (5) by not applying when wind is blowing toward susceptible crops or valuable plants.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions


(Preplant Application Only)

2,4-D Amine Weed Killer may be used for postemergence control of many susceptible annual and perennial broadleaf weeds. This product may be applied prior to planting soybeans to provide foliar burn-down control of susceptible annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and certain broadleaf cover crops such as those listed on the label. Make only preplant applications to emerged weeds prior to planting soybeans grown in reduced tillage production systems.

Do not use any tillage operations between herbicide application and planting of soybeans.

Mixing Instructions: Compatible crop oil concentrates, agricultural surfactants and fluid fertilizers approved for use on growing crops may be added to spray mixture to increase the herbicidal effectiveness of 2,4-D Amine Weed Killer on certain weeds. Read and follow all directions and precautions on the label and on the label of each product added to the spray mixture.

Application Procedures: Apply using air or ground equipment in a spray volume sufficient to provide uniform coverage of weeds. Use 2 or more gallons of total spray volume per acre for aerial application and 10 or more gallons per acre for ground equipment.

For best weed control results, application should be made when weeds are small, actively growing and free of stress caused by temperature extremes, moisture stress, diseases, or insect damage. The control of individual weed species may be variable. Consult your local county agent or State Agricultural Extension Specialist or Crop Consultant for advice.

WHEN TO APPLY: Not Less Than 30 Days prior to planting Soybeans

Use Precautions and Restrictions

- Important Notice: Unacceptable injury to soybeans planted in treated fields may occur. Whether or not soybean injury occurs and the extent of such 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 at the time of application. Injury is more likely under cool, rainy conditions and where there is less weed vegetation and crop residue present.

- Do not use on sandy soils with less than 1.0 organic matter.

- Do not make more than one application per season regardless of the application rate used.

- Do not apply when weather conditions such as atmospheric temperature inversion or when wind direction favors drift from the treated area to susceptible plants.

- Do not allow livestock grazing or harvest hay, forage or fodder from treated fields. Livestock should be restricted from feeding/grazing of treated cover crops.

- In treated fields, plant soybean seed as deep as practical, but not less than 1.0 inch deep. Adjust the planter, if necessary, to ensure that planted seed is adequately covered.

- Do not apply 2,4-D Amine Weed Killer as described unless you are prepared to accept the results of soybean injury, including possible stand loss and/or yield reduction.

- During the growing season following application, do not replant treated fields with crops other than those labeled for use with 2,4-D Amine Weed Killer.

If band treatment is used, base the dosage rate on the actual area sprayed.
