DIRECTIONS FOR USE
DO NOT APPLY MORE THAN ONCE PER GROWING SEASON.

Grazing Restriction
Do not permit lactating dairy animals to graze fields within 7 days after application.
Do not harvest forage or cut hay within 7 days after application.
Withdraw meat animals from treated fields at least 3 days before slaughter.

USE PRECAUTIONS
- Do not apply during periods of dead calm or when winds are gusty. Do not overspray nontarget terrestrial or aquatic habitats. These include: grassland, forested areas, shelter belts, woodlots, hedgerows, pastures, rangelands, and shrublands, lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, coulees, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs, wetlands and estuarine/marine habitats. Avoid drifting of spray onto any body of water or other non-target areas.
- Coarse sprays are less likely to drift, therefore, avoid combinations of pressure and nozzle type that will result in fine particles (mist). Do not apply when wind velocity and direction pose a risk of spray drift. Use caution when the wind is blowing towards a nearby sensitive crop, garden, terrestrial habitat (such as shelter-belt) or aquatic habitat.
- Do not spray on exceptionally hot days over 27 C.
- Clean spray equipment thoroughly after use and rinse with clean water. Do not use spray equipment to apply other pesticides to crops sensitive to this product. Do not reuse empty containers.

To Prepare a Spray
Add half the required amount of water to the spray tank, then add with agitation the required amount of the product as shown for the different uses (for tank mixes, add MCPA first unless combining with TCA), and finally the balance of the water with continued agitation. Provide agitation to ensure uniformity of spray mixture.

Product Specific Precautions
Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. If you have questions, call the manufacturer at 1-800-247-8013 or obtain technical advice from the distributor or your provincial agricultural representative. Application of this specific product must meet and/or conform to the following:

CROP USE
Ground Application
Use 100-240 L of spray solution per hectare depending on the type of application equipment used. Use sufficient water for even distribution. Spray at low pressures (200 to 275 kPa) when the weeds are actively growing. Do not spray in winds exceeding 25 km per hour.
During mixing, loading application, clean-up and repair activities, wear coveralls over a longsleeved shirt, long pants, socks, shoes and chemical-resistant gloves. In addition, when mixing/loading, wear goggles or face shield. Aerial applicators and applicators using a closed cab are not required to wear chemical-resistant gloves.
Re-entry is not permitted until 12 hours after application for all agricultural scenarios, unless otherwise indicated.
For hand harvesting of corn (field and sweet), re-entry is not permitted until 15 days after application. As such, a preharvest interval (PHI) of 15 days after application is required.
For pastures, a maximum of 2 applications is permitted per season, with a minimum retreatment interval of 90 days.

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.

Aerial Application (including fixed and rotary wing aircraft)
Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment which has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application rates and conditions of this label.
Label rates, conditions and precautions are product specific. Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. Apply only at the rate recommended for aerial application on this label. Where no rate for aerial application appears for the specific use, this product cannot be applied by any type of aerial equipment.
Ensure uniform application. To avoid streaked, uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices.
Apply a minimum of 30 L of spray solution per hectare depending on the type of application system being used. Use boom pressures of 235 kPa or less. Avoid placing nozzles where spray will enter wing tip vortices. Do not spray in winds exceeding 16 km per hour.

Aerial Use Precautions
Apply only when meteorological conditions at the treatment site allow for complete and even crop coverage. Apply only under conditions of good practice specific to aerial application as outlined in the National Aerial Pesticide Application Manual, developed by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Committee on Pest Management and Pesticides. DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 16 km/h at flying height at the site of application. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) coarse classification. To reduce drift caused by turbulent wingtip vortices, the nozzle distribution along the spray boom length MUST NOT exceed 65% of the wingspan or rotorspan.
Do not apply to any body of water. Avoid drifting of spray onto any body of water or other nontarget areas. 

Aerial Operator Precautions
Do not allow the pilot to mix chemicals to be loaded onto the aircraft. Loading of premixed chemicals with a closed system is permitted.
It is desirable that the pilot have communication capabilities at each treatment site at the time of application.
Aerial applicators must wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt.
Mixers/loaders must wear coveralls over a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, socks, shoes and chemical-resistant gloves and goggles or face shield during mixing, loading, clean-up and repair activities.
Aircraft must be closed cab.
Mixer/loader and applicator must be different individuals.
No human flaggers permitted.
Follow the more stringent label precautions in cases where the operator precautions exceed the generic label recommendations on the existing ground boom label.
All personnel on the job site must wash hands and face thoroughly before eating and drinking. Protective clothing, aircraft cockpit and vehicle cabs must be decontaminated regularly.

Surface runoff
To reduce runoff from treated areas into aquatic habitats, consider the characteristics and conditions of the site before treatment. Site characteristics and 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 such as clay).
Avoid applying this product when heavy rain is forecast.
Contamination of aquatic areas as a result of runoff may be reduced by including a vegetative strip (buffer zone) between the treated area and the edge of the water body.

Leaching
The use of this chemical may result in contamination of groundwater particularly in areas where soils are permeable (e.g. sand, loamy sand and sandy loam soils) and/or the depth to the water table is shallow.
