Do not use on residential turfgrass. Do not collect grass clippings for mulch or compost. Do not send clippings to a compost facility.
Applicator must give notice to landowners/property managers to not use grass clippings for mulching or composting.
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 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.
Other State and Local Requirements
Applicators must follow all state and local pesticide drift requirements regarding application of 2,4-D herbicides. Where states have more stringent regulations, they must be observed.
All aerial and ground application equipment must be properly maintained and calibrated using appropriate carriers or surrogates.
Do not apply with a nozzle height greater than 4 feet above the crop canopy.
Avoid drift of spray mist to vegetables, flowers, ornamental plants, shrubs, trees and other desirable plants. Do not pour spray solutions near desirable plants. Do not use on Centipedegrass, St. Augustinegrass, Dichondragrass, nor on lawns or turf where desirable clovers are present. Avoid fine mists. Use lawn type sprayer with coarse spray as wind drift is less likely. Avoid contact with exposed feeder roots of ornamentals and trees. Maximum control of weeds will be obtained from spring or early fall applications when weeds are actively growing. Use the higher rate for hard-to-control weeds. Do not exceed specified dosages for any area; be particularly careful within the dripline of tree and other ornamental species. Do not apply to newly seeded grasses until well established. Do not use grass clippings from turf treated with this product for composting and/or mulch. Avoid broadcast applications when air temperature exceeds 90ºF. When using small, spot treatment applications in temperature over 90ºF, turf injury may occur.
When treating Carpetgrass and St. Augustine grass, avoid broadcast applications when air temperature exceeds 80ºF. When air temperatures exceed 80ºF, limit application to spot treatment only.
The suitable use of this product on non-recommended turf species may be determined by treating a small area at any rate/acre which does not exceed 3 pints/acre. The treated area should be observed for any sign of turf injury for a period of 30 days of normal growing conditions to determine the phytotoxicity and efficacy to the treated area.
For optimum results: (1) avoid applying during excessively dry or hot periods unless irrigation is used; (2) turf should not be mowed 1 to 2 days before and following application; (3) reseed no sooner than 3 to 4 weeks after application of this product. Adding oil, wetting agent, or other surfactant to the spray may be used to increase effectiveness on weeds but doing so may reduce selectivity to turf resulting in turf damage. Clean and rinse spray equipment using soap or detergent and water, and rinse thoroughly before reuse for other sprays.
Limited to two applications per year.
Maximum of 4 pints of product per acre per application.
The maximum seasonal rate is 8 pints per acre excluding spot treatments.
For sod farms, use a minimum of 21 days between applications.
Use of this 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. EP, C01-0132C, (W.D. WA). For further information, please refer to http://www.epa.gov/espp/wtc/.
