ASPARAGUS (ESTABLISHED) - PRE-EMERGENCE APPLICATION ONLY
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.
TriCor DF may be used in ground spray equipment or sprinkler irrigation (center pivot, lateral move, or solid set) systems as a single pre-emergence broadcast application or as a split application consisting of a pre-emergence broadcast application followed by a post-harvest broadcast application. Aerial application is prohibited.
Refer to the “General Information” section of the label for directions.
PRE-EMERGENCE APPLICATION ONLY: Make a single surface application in early Spring before asparagus spears or ferns emerge. If the field is to be disked, apply TriCor DF after disking but before the crop emerges. Use the lower rate for control of the broadleaf weeds listed above. Use the higher rate in fields with a history of severe infestations of grasses and for maximum residual control. Do not apply within 14 days of harvest.
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS (Asparagus): Do not use on newly seeded asparagus nor on young plants during the first growing season after setting crowns.
DO NOT APPLY POST HARVEST APPLICATIONS UNTIL AFTER THE LAST HARVEST OF SPEARS.
