For selective post-emergence broadleaf weed control in soybeans, dry beans, peas, corn (grain, silage, sweet and seed), flax (excluding low linolenic acid varieties), sorghum and millet (grain and forage), fababeans, and established red and alsike clover for seed production.


GENERAL INFORMATION
BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide is a liquid herbicide for selective post-emergence control of many broadleaf weeds and yellow nutsedge in soybeans, dry beans, peas, corn (grain, silage, sweet and seed), flax (excluding low linolenic acid varieties), fababeans, forage and grain sorghum, forage and grain millet, and established red and alsike clover for seed production. For enhanced broad spectrum weed control in soybeans only, BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide can be tank mixed with a nitrogen source such as 28% UAN, PINNACLE, PURSUIT or BLAZER, depending upon target weeds.
BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide does not control grasses.
BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide is a herbicide with mainly contact action. Uptake into the plant occurs primarily through the leaves. Thorough coverage of foliage is important for consistent weed control. Failure to penetrate crop or weed leaf canopies with the spray will result in incomplete control of small weeds growing underneath.
Cool weather conditions or drought will delay herbicidal activity and if prolonged, may result in poor weed control. Use of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide in hot, humid weather may result in temporary leaf yellowing, leaf flecking, bronzing or burning particularly on peas and some varieties of dry common beans. The crop usually outgrows this condition within 10 days (see Restrictions and Limitations).


SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS
Ground Application
Use sprayers equipped with standard flat fan pesticide nozzles with the recommended spray volume, pressure and additives. Tilt spray nozzles 45 degrees forward to ensure better coverage.

SPRAY VOLUME - Minimum 100 L/ha. Use larger water volumes (up to 300 L/ha) for weeds at the upper limit of their recommended stage for treatment.
SPRAY PRESSURE - Minimum 275 kPa. Use higher pressure (use up to 425 kPa) for weeds at the upper limit of their recommended stage for treatment.

NOTE: Use a minimum of 200 L/ha if crop canopy or heavy weed population interferes with thorough spray coverage, or under cool temperature.


BASAGRAN FORTE HERBICIDE BANDING TECHNIQUES
1. Spray a minimum of 25 cm wide band.
2. Minimize the amount of dust striking target weeds to ensure adequate coverage and penetration.
3. DO NOT use cultivation equipment when spraying.
4. Adjust the BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide rate to proportion of the total area to be sprayed.


SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT FOR GROUND APPLICATION
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 crop or ground.
DO NOT apply by air.

Buffer Zones
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 belts, woodlots, hedgerows, rangelands, riparian areas and shrublands).
Method of Application – Field sprayer (1)
Crop – Sorghum and millet (grain and forage), red and alsike clover
Buffer zone (metres) required for the protection of: Terrestrial Habitat - 1

Method of Application – Field sprayer (1)
Crop – Soybeans, corn, dry beans, fababeans, peas, flax
Buffer zone (metres) required for the protection of: Terrestrial Habitat – 2

(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 labelled 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 labelled 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.


DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Timing of Application
Although the timing of application should be primarily in relation to the stage of weed growth, the crop must be in a tolerant stage as shown in Table 1. The information on usual stage of crop for optimum weed control may also serve as a guide to spray timing. (Refer to Table 1 - Crop Application Timing.)
Early treatment of weeds with BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide is important to maximize crop yield potential through elimination of early weed competition and permits better coverage of the weeds, thereby increasing the performance of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide.
Apply BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide at the correct rate when broadleaf weeds are small and actively growing and before the weeds reach the maximum size recommended for treatment as listed in Tables 2, 3 and 4. BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide should be applied when the main weed of concern is in the suggested growth stage for treatment.
Table 5 details the tank mix options available for soybeans and the relative maximum weed leaf stages or weed height in centimetres for effective control. For detailed information on specific tank mixes, refer to Tank Mix Sections for each tank mix partner.

(1) Dry common bean varieties may vary in their tolerance to herbicides, including BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide. Since not all dry common bean varieties have been tested for tolerance to BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide, first use of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide should be limited to a small area of each variety to confirm tolerance prior to adoption as a general field practice. Additionally, consult your seed supplier for information on the tolerance of specific varieties of dry common beans to BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide.
(2) Apply one application/year only.
(3) Crop injury may occur under hot, humid conditions. Speed of recovery will be influenced by growing conditions and weed control.

TANK MIXTURES
ALL TANK MIXES ARE REGISTERED FOR USE IN SOYBEANS ONLY. USE OF THESE TANK MIXES IN CROPS OTHER THAN SOYBEANS MAY RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT INJURY OR LOSS OF CROP.


BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide + NITROGEN SOURCE
Benefit (over BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide alone):
Improved control of velvetleaf and lamb's-quarters.

Rate:
Add 6 L/ha ammonium sulphate or 10 L/ha 28% urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) to either the 2.25 L/ha or the 1.75 L/ha rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide.
Notes:
The addition of ammonium sulphate or 28% urea ammonium nitrate to BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide will result in more consistent control of velvetleaf and lamb's-quarters, especially under cool conditions, heavy weed pressures or at the maximum growth stages indicated in the BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide Weed Application Timing (Tables 2 and 3).
The addition of either form of nitrogen source to BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide may cause slight leaf burn, but the new growth is normal and crop vigour is not reduced. A high quality source of 28% UAN or ammonium sulphate should be used to avoid solids or contaminants that may interfere with spray application (clogging nozzle tips) or reduced product performance. Do not use brass or aluminum nozzles when spraying BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide plus a nitrogen source.


BASAGRAN FORTE HERBICIDE + PURSUIT + NITROGEN SOURCE (SOYBEANS ONLY)
Benefit (over BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide alone):
Two modes of action providing postemergent contact and soil activity. Control of nightshade (Eastern black), redroot pigweed, annual grasses and improved control of lamb's-quarters.

Rate:
BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide 1.25 L/ha or 1.75 L/ha + PURSUIT 0.312 L/ha + Nitrogen Source 2 L/ha
Add 0.312 L/ha of PURSUIT to 1.25 L/ha or 1.75 L/ha rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide + 2 L/ha of nitrogen source for control of nightshade (Eastern black), velvetleaf, common ragweed, redroot pigweed, barnyard grass, green and yellow foxtail, and improved control of lamb's-quarters.
When weeds are under stress due to environmental conditions, use the high rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide at 1.75 L/ha + PURSUIT at 0.312 L/ha + nitrogen source at 2 L/ha.

For additional weeds controlled by the tank mix of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide and PURSUIT, consult Table 4 for maximum leaf stages or weed heights.

(1) Use 1.75 L/ha rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide for control of additional weeds and later stages, as detailed in Table 4, including cocklebur, lady's thumb, and wild mustard.

Use 1.75 L/ha rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide for perennial weed control, including yellow nutsedge, Canada thistle and field bindweed (suppression only). A second application of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide alone at 1.75 L/ha may be required 7-15 days after initial treatment.

Notes:
Slight initial crop stunting may result when tank mixing with PURSUIT but will not result in yield reduction or delay in harvest.
When tank mixing BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide with PURSUIT, a pre-harvest interval of 100 days should be maintained.
Always refer to PURSUIT label for rotational crop restrictions, first aid, precautions, warning and disposal of herbicide.


BASAGRAN FORTE HERBICIDE + BLAZER
Benefit (over BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide alone):
Improved control of ragweed, redroot pigweed and nightshade.

Rate:
Add 1.25 L/ha BLAZER to 1.25 L/ha rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide.
BLAZER at 1.25 L/ha plus BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide at 1.25 L/ha will control the weeds listed in Table 4 up to the specified leaf stage. Use this treatment where common ragweed and/or redroot pigweed are the dominant weed species present.

OR

Add 0.63 L/ha BLAZER to 1.75 L/ha rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide.
BLAZER at 0.63 L/ha plus BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide at 1.75 L/ha will control the weeds listed in Table 4 up to the specified leaf stage. Use this treatment where lamb’s-quarters and weeds other than common ragweed and redroot pigweed are the dominant weed species present.

Note:
Do not use ASSIST Oil Concentrate or other adjuvants with the BLAZER plus BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide tank mixture.


BASAGRAN FORTE HERBICIDE + PINNACLE (SOYBEANS ONLY)
Benefit (over BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide alone):
Control of redroot pigweed and improved control of lamb's-quarters. 

Rate:
BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide 2.25 L/ha + PINNACLE 5.5 or 8.0 g/ha
BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide 1.75 L/ha + PINNACLE 5.5 or 8.0 g/ha
Add PINNACLE at 5.5 or 8.0 g/ha to either the 2.25 L/ha or the 1.75 L/ha rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide for improved control of certain broadleaf weeds, including lamb's-quarters and redroot pigweed as well as all the weeds listed in the corresponding "BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide Weed Application Timing Tables 2 and 3" for BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide alone. The following table details the leaf stages where control of redroot pigweed and lamb's-quarters can be expected.

All weeds controlled by BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide plus the following:
WEEDS SPECIES MAXIMUM / CONTROLLED LEAF STAGE
Redroot pigweed / 6-leaf
Lamb's-quarters / 8-leaf (Use 8.0 g/ha rate of PINNACLE for advanced leaf staging).

(1) For control of common ragweed, use the 2.25 L/ha rate of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide.
(1) For additional weeds controlled by the tank mix of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide and PINNACLE, consult Table 4 for maximum weed leaf stages or weed heights.

Notes:
The addition of PINNACLE to BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide provides excellent control of redroot pigweed and lamb's-quarters. However, even though redroot pigweed growth is rapidly stopped, typical symptoms of dying weeds may not be noticeable for 1 to 3 weeks after application, depending on growing conditions.
The combination of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide and PINNACLE does not provide residual weed control. Weeds that emerge after application will not be controlled.
Do not add nitrogen source or any other additive when tank mixing BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide with PINNACLE.
Always refer to the PINNACLE label for use, precautions, sprayer cleanup, first aid, storage and disposal of PINNACLE.


MIXING
1. Clean spray tank by following sprayer cleanup recommendations on the previous product label and fill half full with clean water. Start agitation or by-pass system.
2. When required add correct amount of Nitrogen source. Note: Do not add nitrogen source when tank mixing BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide with PINNACLE.
3. If required, add the correct amount of PINNACLE or PURSUIT. Note: For use on soybeans only. Continuous agitation is required to keep PINNACLE or PURSUIT in suspension.
Note: When using the BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide + PINNACLE tank mix, prepare a PINNACLE/water slurry in a separate container with clean water before adding to spray tank on repeat tank loads.
4. Add correct amount of BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide and agitate 2 to 3 minutes.
5. Add remainder of water, agitate and spray.
6. If an oil film starts to build up in the tank, drain and clean tank with a strong detergent solution.
7. Thoroughly clean spray tank immediately after use. Refer to specific tank mix partner label for cleanup instructions.


RESISTANCE-MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
For resistance management, BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide is a Group 6 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide and other Group 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 BASAGRAN FORTE Herbicide or other Group 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 or to report suspected resistance, contact BASF at 1-877-371-2273.
