WHEAT (FALL AND SPRING SEEDED) - PREHARVEST APPLICATIONS - BIENNIALS AND PERENNIALS
Banvel + 2,4-D is a selective postemergence herbicide for controlling a wide spectrum of annual, biennial, and perennial broadleaf weeds and brush in grass forages and selected row crops.
MODE OF ACTION
Banvel + 2,4-D contains two active ingredients: dicamba and 2,4-D. Banvel + 2,4-D is readily absorbed by plants through shoot and root uptake, translocates throughout the plant’s system, and accumulates in areas of active growth. Banvel + 2,4-D interferes with the plant’s growth hormones (auxins) resulting in death of many broadleaf weeds.
Banvel + 2,4-D can be used to control weeds that may interfere with harvest of wheat. Apply up to 2 pints of Banvel + 2,4-D per acre as a broadcast or spot treatment to annual broadleaf weeds when wheat is in the hard dough stage and the green color is gone from the nodes (joints) of the stem. Best results will be obtained if application can be made when weeds are actively growing but before weeds canopy. A waiting interval of 7 days is required before harvest. Do not use preharvest-treated wheat for seed unless a germination test is performed on the seed with an acceptable result of 95% germination or better.
For control of additional broadleaf weeds or grasses, Banvel + 2,4-D may be tank mixed with other herbicides such as Ally or Roundup Ultra that are registered for preharvest use in wheat.
Preharvest use of Banvel + 2,4-D is not registered for use in California.
