NON-FOOD/FEED USE (LAND NOT HARVESTED, GRAZED OR FORAGED) - PREPLANT DIRECTIONS - 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.
NON-FOOD/FEED USE (LAND NOT HARVESTED, GRAZED OR FORAGED)-SPECIFIC INFORMATION
BETWEEN CROP APPLICATIONS
PREPLANT DIRECTIONS (POSTHARVEST, FALLOW, CROP STUBBLE, SET-ASIDE) FOR BROADLEAF WEED CONTROL:
Banvel + 2,4-D can be applied either postharvest in the fall, spring, or summer during the fallow period or to crop stubble/setaside acres. Apply Banvel + 2,4-D as a broadcast or spot treatment to emerged and actively growinq weeds after crop harvest (postharvest) and before a killing frost or in the fallow cropland or crop stubble the following spring or summer.
Apply 0.5-6 pints of Banvel + 2,4-D per acre, Refer to Table 1 to determine use rates for specific targeted weed species. Retreatments may be made as needed; however, do not exceed a total of 8 pints of Banvel + 2,4-D per treated acre during a growing season. For best performance, apply Banvel + 2,4-D when annual weeds are less than 6” tall, when biennial weeds are in the rosette stage and to perennial weed regrowth in late summer or fall following a mowing or tillage treatment. The most effective control of upright perennial broadleaf weeds such as Canada thistle and Jerusalem artichoke occurs if Banvel + 2,4-D is applied when the majority of weeds have at least 4-6” of regrowth or for weeds such as field bindweed and hedge bindweed that are in or beyond the full bloom stage.
Avoid disturbing treated areas following application. Treatments may not kill weeds that develop from seed or underground plant parts such as rhizomes or bulblets, after the effective period for Banvel + 2,4-D. For seedling control, a follow-up program or other culture practices could be instituted.
