NUFARM - herbicide
28123

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
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. Tank mixes with chemical additives, pesticides or fertilizers not listed on this label may be physically incompatible, may cause unacceptable crop effects or may result in unacceptable weed or pest control. Contact Nufarm Agriculture Inc. at 1-800-868-5444 for more information.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS:
For resistance management, APPROVE Herbicide is a Group 4 and 6 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to APPROVE Herbicide and other Group 4 and 6 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 APPROVE Herbicide or other Group 4 and 6 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.
For further information and to report suspected resistance, contact Nufarm Agriculture Inc. company representatives at 1-800-868-5444 or at www.nufarm.ca

AERIAL APPLICATION: 
Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment that has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application rate and conditions of this label. 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 wing- or rotorspan. 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. No human flaggers are permitted.
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 to any body of water. Avoid drifting of spray onto any body of water or other non-target areas. Specified buffer zones should be observed. Coarse sprays are less likely to drift, therefore, avoid combination of pressure and nozzle type that will result in fine particles (mist). Do not apply during period of dead calm or when wind velocity and direction pose a risk of spray drift. Do not spray when the wind is blowing towards a nearby sensitive crop, garden, terrestrial habitat (such as shelter-belt) or aquatic habitat.
Operator Precautions: 
Do not allow the pilot to mix chemical 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. The field crew and the mixer/loaders must wear chemical resistant gloves, coveralls and goggles or face shield during mixing/loading, cleanup and repair. 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.
Product Specific Precautions: 
Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. If you have questions, call the manufacturer 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: Volume: APPROVE Herbicide must be applied in volume rates of not less than 30 L/ha. For best results when there is a heavy crop canopy, or when the majority of the weeds are cow cockle, smartweed or pigweed, a volume rate of 40 L/ha is recommended.
Buffer Zones: Appropriate buffer zones should be established between treatment areas and aquatic systems and treatment areas and significant wildlife habitat.

GROUND SPRAYER: 
Wash the tank and clean all filters, screens and tips. Select nozzle tips to apply the recommended volume per hectare. Flood jet type tips are not recommended. Adjust boom height to ensure uniform coverage of the weeds. For ground applications, spray at 5 to 10 kph. Ensure that all tips are in good condition and spraying the same volume. 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 Terrestrial and Aquatic Habitats: 
The buffer zones specified in the tables below are 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, 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.

USE PRECAUTIONS: 
Avoid spray drift unto any desirable vegetation NOT listed on this label as damage may occur. Avoid contamination of ponds, streams, rivers, lakes and other water sources. Do not spray during periods of high winds when spray is likely to drift. Coarse sprays are less likely to drift. Do not spray during periods of high temperatures when crops may be under stress or damage to the crop may occur. TIMING: For best results spray when weeds are in the seedling stage. Apply in good growing conditions. Application must be made before the crop shields the weeds.

MIXING: 
Half fill the tank with clean water. Add the required amount of APPROVE Herbicide and agitate thoroughly. Fill the tank and agitate again before use.
