General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

SOIL TEXTURE: As used on the label, “Coarse soils” are loamy sand or sandy loam soils. “Medium soils” are loam, silt loam, silt, sandy clay, or sandy clay loam. “Fine soils” are silty clay, silty clay loam, clay, or clay loam. Silty clay loam soils are transitional soils and may be classified as medium textured soils in some regions of the U.S.

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS

Do not allow sprays to drift on to adjacent desirable plants.

Apply this product only as specified on the label.

Do not use on other crops grown for food or forage. Observe all cautions and limitations on labeling of all products used in mixtures.

Do not rotate any crop not listed on the label for 18 months following application of TriCor DF.

For all uses: Low-pressure and high-volume hand-wand equipment is prohibited.

APPLICATION OF TRICOR DF WITH HERBICIDE SPRAY EQUIPMENT

Use a standard low pressure (20 to 40 psi.) herbicide boom sprayer equipped with suitable nozzles and screens no finer than 50-mesh in nozzle and in-line strainers. Agitate thoroughly before and during application with bypass agitation.

GROUND APPLICATION: Apply the proper rate of TriCor DF in a minimum of 10 to 40 gallons of spray mixture per acre broadcast.

Banded Application: Use proportionally less TriCor DF per acre in a band versus a broadcast application. For band application use 1/4 to 1 gallon of spray mix per inch of band width regardless of row spacing.

EXAMPLES: (1) To treat a 15-inch band on rows 30 inches apart, use one-half of the broadcast rate of TriCor DF. (2) To treat a 14-inch band on rows 42 inches apart, use one-third of the broadcast rate of TriCor DF.

AERIAL APPLICATION: Where permitted, apply specified rate in a minimum of 2 to 10 gallons of spray mixture per acre.

Do not apply aerially when wind speed is greater than 10 mph.

NOTE: Do not apply aerially when TriCor DF is tank-mixed with Lasso.

For All Applications of TriCor DF: Sprayer must be accurately calibrated before applying TriCor DF. Check sprayer during application to be sure it is working properly and delivering a uniform spray pattern. As the volume of spray mixture decreases per acre, the importance of accurate calibration and uniform application increases. Avoid other application, misapplication, and boom and spray swath overlapping that will increase spray dosage. (Crop injury may occur as a result). Avoid spray skips and gaps which allow weeds to grow in untreated soil. Do not apply when weather conditions favor spray drift and/or when sensitive or cool season crops, such as cole crops, onions, peas, or strawberries are present in adjacent fields or in areas where wheat is growing in coarse textured soils.

Refer in the label for tank mix information.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

ALFALFA AND SAINFOIN

(California Only)

(Including Mixed Stands With Grasses)

TriCor DF may be used in aerial or ground spray equipment as a broadcast surface application to dormant established crops of alfalfa and sainfoin.

APPLICATION: TriCor DF may be used in aerial or ground spray equipment as a broadcast surface application to dormant established crops of alfalfa and sainfoin for control of certain grass and broadleaf weeds. Do not apply TriCor DF after growth begins in the spring or before growth ceases in the fall. Do not apply to either alfalfa or sainfoin during the first growing season after seeding.

For information on applying TriCor DF in fluid fertilizer solutions to alfalfa, refer to the appropriate section of the label.

For information on Commercial Impregnation and application of TriCor DF on dry bulk fertilizer, refer to the appropriate section of the label.

BROADCAST APPLICATIONS

Select the proper dosage according to weeds known to be present in the field to be treated. Apply specified dosage in 20 to 40 gallons of water per acre with ground spray equipment or 3 to 10 gallons of water per acre with aerial spray equipment fitted with nozzles suitable for broadcast applications of herbicides. Treat only dormant established crops of alfalfa and sainfoin. Injury may occur to alfalfa if TriCor DF is applied earlier than 12 months after seeding. Do not apply after Spring growth begins or before growth ceases in the Fall. Do not graze or harvest within 28 days after application.

At the 1-1/3 lb/acre rate, TriCor DF may be used for suppression of curly dock.

Pre-Harvest Interval

28 days

Restricted Entry Interval
