Command 480 EC Herbicide is primarily a soil applied herbicide for the control of certain annual weeds. Plant uptake of Command occurs through both the roots and the foliage. The movement of the active constituent clomazone within the plant occurs upward and outwards to the leaf. Clomazone is not downward systemic, or translocated from leaf to leaf.
When using Command as a post plant pre-emergence herbicide all emerged weeds should be controlled by application of a non-selective, non-persistent herbicide or by tillage. The soil surface should be left free of large clods of soil that might protect weed seedlings during emergence. Best weed control is achieved when overhead irrigation is used to grow the crop. Command should not be mechanically incorporated into the soil as unacceptable crop injury and variable weed control may occur. When using Command as a post emergence herbicide ensure weeds are young and actively growing.
Clomazone, the active constituent Command, inhibits the biosynthesis of photosynthetic pigments of both chlorophyll and carotenoids. Accordingly the foliage of susceptible plants show signs of chlorosis (whitening or bleaching), followed by necrosis (browning). In some situations, one or more of the following conditions such as; higher use rates, sandy soils, soils of low organic matter, or soils of low pH, may cause an increase in the activity of Command and crop damage may occur. Do not apply Command on to soils with both organic carbon content less than 2% and clay content less than 15%, excluding poppy and tobacco crops, which have a higher crop tolerance to clomazone at label rates. Some crop varieties may show differing levels of tolerance to Command. It is recommended to test on a small area to ensure tolerance is acceptable before adoption on a wider scale. For more specific information consult with your local dealer.
