ASPARAGUS (ESTABLISHED) - SPLIT APPLICATION

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

ASPARAGUS (Established)

0.67-1.33 lbs / acre (pre-emergence) plus 1.33-2 lbs / acre (post-harvest)

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.

SPLIT APPLICATION

PRE-EMERGENCE AND POST HARVEST: Pre-emergence Application: Apply before asparagus spears or ferns emerge. If the field is to be disked, apply after disking but prior to crop emergence.

Do not apply within 14 days of harvest.

Post Harvest Application: Apply after last harvest of the season but prior to emergence. The lower combination rates may be used for control of common ragweed, lambsquarters, redroot pigweed, and red sorrel. Use the higher combination rates for other weeds listed or in fields with severe grass infestations or for maximum post harvest control of emerged weeds.

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.

Pre-Harvest Interval

14 days

Restricted Entry Interval

12 hours

Exception: If the product is soil-injected or soil-incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
