DO NOT contaminate water, food, seed or feed by storage or disposal.
Keep containers closed to avoid spills and contamination.
Store at temperatures above -12 C.
ARSENAL herbicide should not be mixed or stored in unlined steel (except stainless steel) containers or spray tanks.
For Recyclable Containers
Do not reuse this container for any purpose. This is a recyclable container, and is to be disposed of at a container collection site. Contact your local distributor/dealer or municipality for the location of the nearest collection site. Before taking the container to the collection site:
1. Triple- or pressure-rinse the empty container. Add the rinsings to the spray mixture in the tank.
2. Make the empty, rinsed container unsuitable for further use.
If there is no container collection site in your area, dispose of the container in accordance with provincial requirements.
For disposal, this container may be returned to the point of purchase (distributor/dealer). It must be refilled by the distributor/dealer with the same product. Do not reuse this container for any other purpose.
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.
ARSENAL herbicide is applied as a spray for season long control of most annual and perennial grasses and broadleaf weeds on non-cropland areas.
ARSENAL herbicide must be applied post-emergence to the weeds. For maximum activity, weeds should be growing vigorously at the time of post-emergence applications.
ARSENAL herbicide is readily absorbed through foliage and roots and is translocated rapidly throughout the plant. Treated plants stop growing soon after spray application. Chlorosis appears first in the newest leaves, and necrosis spreads from this point. In perennials, the herbicide is translocated into, and kills, underground storage organs, thus preventing regrowth. Chlorosis and tissue necrosis may not be apparent in some plant species until two weeks after application. Complete kill of plants may not occur for several weeks.
WARNING - For ground application only
DO NOT use on food or feed crops. CAUTION: DO NOT graze the treated area or cut for hay; sufficient data are not available to support such use.
DO NOT apply where runoff water may flow onto agricultural land as injury to crops may result. Keep from contact with fertilizers, insecticides, fungicides and seeds.
Keep ARSENAL herbicide away from areas where tree roots may extend into the treated area or in locations where the chemical may be washed or moved into contact with their roots (maintain a distance from the tree equal to at least twice the distance from the tree trunk to the dripline).
DO NOT use on lawns, walks, driveways, tennis courts, or similar areas. Prevent drift of spray to desirable plants.
Thoroughly clean all traces of ARSENAL herbicide from application equipment immediately after use. Flush tank, pump, hoses and boom with several changes of water after removing nozzle tips and screens (clean these parts separately). Drain and flush equipment away from desirable trees and plants. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment wash waters.
This product is to be applied by licensed applicators only.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
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) medium classification. Boom height must be 60 cm or less above the weed canopy or ground.
For application to rights-of-way, buffer zones for protection of sensitive terrestrial habitats are not required; however, the best available application strategies which minimize off-site drift, including meteorological conditions (e.g. wind direction, low wind speed) and spray equipment (e.g. coarse droplet sizes, minimizing height above canopy), should be used. Applicators must, however, observe the specified buffer zones for protection of sensitive aquatic habitats. DO NOT apply by air.
When a tank mix 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.
A post-emergence application of ARSENAL herbicide can be used to control most annual and perennial grasses and broadleaf weeds on the following non-crop, non-graze areas: industrial sites, railroad ballast, spot application treatment for rail and hydro rights-of-way and stations associated with pipeline rights-of-way including well sites, battery stations, and compressor or valve stations. ARSENAL herbicide can be applied alone or in tank mix with BANVEL VM herbicide or glyphosate (present as isopropylamine salt, potassium salt, diammonium salt or dimethylamine salt, registered for use on non-cropland areas).
Apply 3.0 L ARSENAL herbicide per hectare. For small areas apply 30 mL per 100 m2.
Mix the proper amount of ARSENAL herbicide in water in the spray tank with the agitator running. If required, add the correct amount of the tank mix partner.
A foam reducing agent may be added at the recommended label rate, if needed.
