FOR CLEARFIELD WHEAT (1) (e.g. wheat varieties with the CLEARFIELD trait)

This product contains a petroleum distillate which is toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid contamination of aquatic systems during application. Do not contaminate these systems through direct application, disposal of waste or cleaning of equipment.
A buffer zone of 11 metres is required between the point of direct application and the closest downwind edge of sensitive terrestrial habitats (such as grasslands, forested areas, shelter belts, woodlots, hedgerows, pastures, rangelands, and shrublands) and sensitive aquatic habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs, and wetlands).
Do not apply during periods of dead calm or when winds are gusty.
To reduce runoff from treated areas into aquatic habitats, consider the characteristics/conditions of the site before treatment. Site characteristics/conditions that may lead to runoff include, but are not limited to: heavy rainfall, moderate to steep slope, bare soil, poorly draining soil (e.g. soils that are compacted, fine textured, or low in organic matter). It is recommended that this product not be applied when heavy rain is forecast. Potential for contamination of aquatic areas as a result of runoff may be reduced by inclusion of a vegetative strip between the treated area and the edge of the water body.
Toxic to small mammals, birds, aquatic organisms and non-target terrestrial plants. Observe buffer zones specified under DIRECTIONS FOR USE.
This product will harm other broadleaved plants in the vicinity of the treatment area. If applying this product using a handheld sprayer, do not directly spray or allow the spray to drift onto ornamentals or gardens.
Do not spray exposed roots of trees and ornamentals.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE (Prairie Provinces and Peace River Area of British Columbia)
ADRENALIN SC Herbicide is a selective herbicide that can be applied as an early post-emergent treatment in CLEARFIELD wheat (1). When ADRENALIN SC Herbicide is applied early post-emergence, absorption may occur through both the roots and foliage. Susceptible weeds stop growing and eventually die.
Apply using ground equipment only. DO NOT APPLY BY AIR.
Do not apply more than once per year.
DO NOT graze the treated crop within 14 days of application or cut for hay within 42 days of application.
Pre-harvest Interval: Wheat grain and straw can be harvested 79 days after treatment.
Restricted-entry interval (REI) - All liquid or soluble granule products, all crops – 12 hours.
DO NOT apply this product directly to freshwater habitats such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands, estuaries or marine habitats.
DO NOT contaminate irrigation/drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.

Field Sprayer application
DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) coarse classification. Boom height must be 60 cm or less above the crop or ground.

Buffer Zones to Protect Sensitive Aquatic and Terrestrial Habitats
Use of the following spray methods or equipment DO NOT require a buffer zone: hand-held or backpack sprayer and spot treatment.
The buffer zones specified in the table below are required between the point of direct application and the closest downwind edge of sensitive terrestrial habitats (such as grasslands, forested areas, shelter beds, woodlots, hedgerows, riparian areas and shrublands), sensitive freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands) and estuarine/marine habitats.
Seasonal water bodies require buffer zones if there is water in them during application. Water bodies which do not fill on an annual basis need not be buffered.

Method of Application – Field sprayer (1)
Crop – Wheat
Buffer Zones (metres) Required for the protection of:
Freshwater Habitat of Depths:
Less than 1 m – 11
Greater than 1 m – 11
Estuarine/Marine Habitats of Depths:
Less than 1 m – 11
Greater than 1 m – 11
Terrestrial Habitat – 11
(1) For field sprayer application, buffer zones can be reduced with the use of drift reducing spray shields. When using a spray boom fitted with a full shield (shroud, curtain) that extends to the crop canopy, the labeled buffer zone can be reduced by 70%. When using a spray boom where individual nozzles are fitted with cone-shaped shields that are no more than 30 cm above the crop canopy, the labeled buffer zone can be reduced by 30%.

When a tank mixture is used, consult the labels of the tank-mix partners and observe the largest (most restrictive) buffer zone of the products involved in the tank mixture.

Application should be made from the extended 3 leaf to the 6-leaf stage of the wheat crop (prior to flag leaf emergence) and after the weeds have emerged. To control broadleaf weeds, apply ADRENALIN SC Herbicide from the cotyledon up to the 4-leaf stage. To control grasses, apply ADRENALIN SC Herbicide from the 1-4 true leaf stage up until early tillering. Initial crop injury may be observed after application but this is outgrown and should not affect yield. Severe crop injury may occur as a result of spray overlap. AVOID SPRAYER OVERLAP.

Apply in 100 L/ha of water with a NONIONIC SURFACTANT (e.g., AGRAL 90, AGSURF or SURF 92) at the rate of 0.25% v/v.

Use 100 L/ha of water. Use a 50-mesh (or coarser) filter screen. Fill the spray tank with three-quarters of the required amount of clean water, start agitation and continue agitation throughout the entire mixing and spraying procedure. Add the required amount of ADRENALIN SC Herbicide into the sprayer through the tank opening and continue agitating. After the herbicide is thoroughly mixed, continue agitation and add the required amount of non-ionic surfactant. If excess foaming occurs, a silicone anti-foaming agent may be added (e.g., HALT). Complete filling the tank to the desired level with water. If agitation is stopped for more than 5 minutes, re-suspend spray solution by full agitation prior to commencing spraying again. Between loads of ADRENALIN SC Herbicide, check in-line and nozzle screens and rinse and clean if necessary.

Upon completion of spraying ADRENALIN SC Herbicide, thoroughly flush tank, boom, hoses and in-line and nozzle screens with clean water to avoid possible injury to other crops.

There are insufficient data for other follow crops. Conduct a field bioassay (a test strip grown to maturity) the year before growing any crop other than those listed above.

For resistance management, ADRENALIN SC Herbicide is both a Group 2 and a Group 4 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to ADRENALIN SC Herbicide and other Group 2 and/or Group 4 herbicides. The resistant biotypes may dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly in the same field. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action, but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
To delay herbicide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of ADRENALIN SC Herbicide or other Group 2 and 4 herbicides with different herbicide groups that control the same weeds in a field.
Use tank mixtures with herbicides from a different group when such use is permitted.
Herbicide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, historical information related to herbicide use and crop rotation, and considers tillage (or other mechanical), cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
Monitor treated weed populations for resistance development.
Prevent movement of resistant weed seeds to other fields by cleaning harvesting and tillage equipment and planting clean seed.
Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or integrated weed-management recommendations for specific crops and weed biotypes.
