GENERAL INFORMATION
ACCORD DF Herbicide is a dry flowable herbicide for selective post-emergence control of green foxtail (including Group 1 and Group 3 resistant biotypes), volunteer flax, cleavers, barnyard grass and suppression of annual and perennial sow-thistle in the following crops:
spring and durum wheat
spring barley
canary seed
canola (Brassica napus – all varieties, including conventional, Clearfield, LibertyLink and Roundup Ready)
ACCORD DF Herbicide is a herbicide with mainly systemic action. Uptake into the plant occurs through both the foliage and root system. Thorough coverage of foliage is important for consistent weed control. Failure to penetrate crop or weed leaf canopies with the spray will result in inconsistent control of weeds growing underneath.
Visual symptoms of weed control of ACCORD DF Herbicide may take up to two weeks following application to develop. These symptoms include initial twisting to stunting, reddening and chlorosis about 14 days followed by necrosis and death about 21 days after application. Even though ACCORD DF Herbicide symptoms may take some time to develop, competition from the weeds treated with ACCORD DF Herbicide is eliminated soon after application.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Application Rate and Timing
DO NOT APPLY BY AIR.
Early treatment of weeds with ACCORD DF Herbicide is important to maximize crop yield potential through elimination of early weed competition. Some initial crop injury may be observed after application, but this is usually outgrown and should not affect crop yield.
ACCORD DF Herbicide can be applied to wheat (spring and durum), spring barley, canary seed, and canola (Brassica napus – all varieties, including conventional, Clearfield, LibertyLink and Roundup Ready) at rates detailed below. Apply ACCORD DF Herbicide when weeds are small and actively growing.
Apply in 100 L/ha of water with MERGE Adjuvant at a rate of 0.5 to 1 L per 100 L spray solution. The higher rate of MERGE Adjuvant is recommended for higher weed densities and when environmental conditions at the time of herbicide application may negatively impact herbicide uptake.
Use the 135 g/ha rate ONLY for control of volunteer flax, barnyard grass, cleavers, lighter infestations of green foxtail and suppression of annual and perennial sow-thistle. For wheat, use the higher rate of 165 g/ha for control of heavier infestations of green foxtail. Do not use the 165 g/ha rate on spring barley. The 165 g/ha rate may only be applied to spring and durum wheat and canary seed.
DO NOT apply ACCORD DF Herbicide to any field more often than every second year. This practise must be respected in order to avoid potential injury to future rotational crops, to minimize the potential for carryover and accumulation of soil residues, and to reduce the selection pressure which could contribute to the development of resistant biotypes.

RECROPPING
Due to the residual activity of ACCORD DF Herbicide in the soil, land treated with ACCORD DF Herbicide cannot be rotated to crops other than specified in Table 3. To avoid injury to rotational crops, the minimum recropping intervals in Table 3 must be followed.
TABLE 3: MINIMUM RECROPPING INTERVALS
Crop - Minimum Recropping Interval (Months)
Wheat (spring, durum) (1) - 0
Spring barley (1) - 0
Canola - 10
Field peas - 10
Sunflowers - 10
Oats - 12
Flax - 22
Lentils - 22
(1) In the event of crop failure, only spring and durum wheat and spring barley may be reseeded in fields treated with ACCORD DF Herbicide.
ACCORD DF Herbicide should not be used on land where potatoes or vegetables are part of the rotation.
The company recommends that a field bioassay (a test strip grown to maturity) be conducted the year before growing any crops other than those listed in Table 3.
On lighter soils with low organic matter or under dry conditions, some crop injury may occur particularly in flax and lentils but will not reduce yield. Under these conditions, the minimum recropping interval for flax and lentils should be extended by 12 months.
Refer to the broadleaf or AVENGE 200-C herbicide label for specific additional recropping restrictions.

MIXING
1. Thoroughly clean the sprayer prior to use. For appropriate cleaning instructions, refer to the label of the product sprayed previous to application of ACCORD DF Herbicide.
2. Fill the clean spray tank half full with clean water. Start agitation or by-pass system. Agitation should be running during the entire mixing procedure.
3. Add the correct amount of ACCORD DF Herbicide and agitate 2 to 3 minutes.
4. Add the correct amount of broadleaf herbicide, followed by AVENGE 200-C herbicide, if required. When mixing ACCORD DF Herbicide with EXPRESS PACK, EXPRESS herbicide must be completely in suspension in the spray tank prior to adding 2,4-D herbicide.
NOTE: On repeat tank loads of either EXPRESS PACK or REFINE EXTRA herbicide, prepare an EXPRESS/water or REFINE/water slurry in a separate container with clean water before adding to the spray tank.
5. Add the correct amount of MERGE adjuvant and agitate 2 to 3 minutes.
6. Add remainder of water to the spray tank and maintain sufficient agitation during mixing and spraying to ensure a uniform spray mixture.
7. For sprayer clean-up, refer to the sprayer clean-up section.
8. Consult the broadleaf or AVENGE 200-C herbicide label for additional application instructions, use precautions and recropping information.

STORAGE
1. Store in original, tightly-closed container.
2. Do not ship or store near food, feed, seed or fertilizers.
3. Store in cool, dry, locked, well-ventilated area without floor drain.
4. Herbicides should be shipped or stored separately from other pesticides to avoid crosscontamination.
5. Freezing will not harm ACCORD DF Herbicide. Should product freeze, warm to room temperature prior to use.

DISPOSAL
1. Follow provincial instruction for any required cleaning of the container prior to its disposal.
2. Make the empty container unsuitable for further use.
3. Dispose of the container in accordance with provincial requirements.
4. For information on disposal of unused, unwanted product, contact the manufacturer or the provincial regulatory agency. Contact the manufacturer and the provincial regulatory agency in case of a spill, and for clean-up of spills.
