CEREALS - FOR WEED CONTROL IN A WHEAT/FALLOW/WHEAT ROTATION - SPRING APPLICATION
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.
(Spring and Winter Barley and Winter Wheat)
TriCor DF herbicide may be used for control or suppression of certain grasses and broadleaf weeds when applied postemergence to spring and winter barley or winter wheat. TriCor DF alone and several tank-mixture treatments may be used in the following states: AR, GA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MS, MO, MT, NV, OH, OK, OR, TN, TX, UT, WA.
Application: TriCor DF may be applied by aerial or ground application equipment. Use a minimum spray volume of 2 gpa by air and 10 gpa by ground. Uniform spray coverage is necessary to obtain optimum weed control and to minimize potential for crop injury. Do not exceed rates specified on the label. Do not apply TriCor DF through any type of irrigation equipment. Apply TriCor DF when the crop is healthy and actively growing. TriCor DF may be applied more than once per crop season. Allow a minimum of 21 days between applications if wheat is actively growing or allow 45 days between applications if wheat is growing in adverse conditions, has entered dormancy or is stressed due to frost damage, disease, drought or excessive moisture. Do not use on soils containing less than 0.75% organic matter. Do not apply more than a total of 10.66 ounces TriCor DF (8 ounces active ingredient) per acre per year. On irrigated cereals, do not apply more than 0.5 inch of water for the first irrigation, the maximum amount for each additional irrigation should not exceed 1 inch. Allow a minimum of 14 days between the first irrigation and subsequent irrigations.
Performance Factors: Weed control may not be observed for 2 to 4 weeks under normal growth conditions and for 4 to 6 weeks under very dry conditions. Moisture (at least 1/2 inch) is required within 2 to 3 weeks after application to move TriCor DF into the weed root zone. Lack of adequate moisture after application may result in poor or erratic weed control. Control or suppression of listed weeds is dependent on weed size at time of application. Control or suppression may be reduced if broadleaf weeds are taller than 1 inch or grasses have more than 2 leaves.
Feeding Restrictions: Do not graze wheat within 14 days of TriCor DF application or harvest grain within 21 days after last application. Do not graze or harvest barley before crop maturity. For tank-mix combinations, follow the most restrictive label.
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS: Cereal Injury - Crop injury may occur if TriCor DF is applied.
1. When the crop is under stress such as winter kill, frost damage, disease, drought or excessive moisture, severe grazing, or when these conditions follow the application.
2. In combination with fluid fertilizer especially with the addition of surfactant.
3. Prior to the growth stage specified on the label.
4. To soils high in lime or sodium, a pH greater than 7.7, calcareous, gravelly, thinly covered or exposed subsoil areas.
5. To fields where cereal seeds have been planted less than 1 inch deep.
6. To a non-winter hardy wheat or barley variety.
7. To a sensitive wheat or barley variety as listed below.
8. To frozen soil or crop still in winter dormancy.

FOR WEED CONTROL IN A WHEAT/FALLOW/WHEAT ROTATION
(Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Washington Only)
TriCor DF may be applied to provide weed control during the fallow period after wheat harvest or in the Spring before winter wheat is planted. Winter wheat can be seeded 4 months (120 days) after Spring application. Mechanical tillage or the application of a contact herbicide may be required to control weeds germinating prior to seeding of winter wheat.
Best results will be obtained where straw and chaff are evenly distributed across the field.
For specific application information see the “General Information” section in the front of the label.
Where weed growth is present at application time, TriCor DF should be applied with Gramoxone or other contact herbicide. Refer to the other product label registered for additional directions, rates, and weed species controlled.
Note: Since control of these weeds may be variable depending on moisture following application, the higher label rate should be used.
Spring Application (Summer Fallow): TriCor DF may be applied to wheat stubble in the Spring. Apply 1/2 to 2/3 lb per acre broadcast before weeds emerge in the Spring. Use higher rate for longer weed control or weeds designated as requiring higher rate for control. Rainfall (1/2 inch or more) is necessary for herbicide activation.
Precautions and Restrictions: Do not graze treated fields.
Do not plant Spring seeded cereals following Fall fallow applications of TriCor DF.
Where TriCor DF was applied in the Fall, do not apply TriCor DF in the Spring.
