LIQUID HERBICIDE

For selective post-emergence broadleaf weed control in soybeans, dry and snap common beans, peas, lima beans, fababeans, corn (grain, silage, sweet and seed), flax (including low linolenic acid varieties), peanuts, blueberries, turf, spring wheat (excluding durum), snow peas, seedling and established forage legumes and seedling forage grasses (seed production only for forage legumes and grasses), newly-planted fruit trees - apple, apricot, cherry, peach, pear and nectarine (directed use only).


GENERAL INFORMATION
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide is a liquid herbicide for selective post-emergence control of many broadleaf weeds, yellow nutsedge, cleavers, stork’s bill and volunteer canola in soybeans, dry and snap common beans, peas, lima beans, fababeans, corn (grain, silage, sweet and seed), flax (including low linolenic acid varieties), peanuts, spring wheat (excluding durum), snow peas, seedling forages (alfalfa (1), red clover (2), alsike clover (2), sainfoin (2), bromegrass (2), creeping red rescue (2), meadow foxtail (2), orchardgrass (2), timothy and crested wheatgrass (2)), established forages (alfalfa (1), red clover (1), sainfoin (1) and sweet clover (1)) and newly-planted fruit trees - apple, apricot, cherry, peach, pear and nectarine. (Directed use only. Do not overspray.)
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide will also control yellow nutsedge in blueberries (directed spray only) and turf (sod farms and golf courses only).
For seed production only.
For seed production only in Western Canada.
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide does not control grasses.
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide is a herbicide with mainly contact action. Uptake into the plantoccurs 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 Liquid Herbicide in hot, humid weather may result in temporary leaf yellowing, leaf flecking, bronzing or burning. The crop usually outgrows this condition within 10 days (see Restrictions and Limitations).


DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Timing of Application
Apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide when broadleaf weeds are small and actively growing and before the weeds reach the maximum size recommended for treatment as listed in the BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide Weed Control and Application Rate Table. BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide should be applied when the main weed of concern is in the suggested growth stage for treatment.
Early treatment of weeds with BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide is important to maximize crop yield potential through elimination of early weed competition and permits optimum coverage of the weeds, thereby increasing the performance of BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide.
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 below. The information on usual stage of crop for optimum weed control may also serve as a guide to spray timing.

Blueberries
Apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide at the rate of 1.75 L/ha plus ASSIST Oil Concentrate not to exceed 2 L/ha when yellow nutsedge is 15-20 centimetres tall.
Use as a directed spray only. Do not overspray.
Apply by ground in sufficient water volume of 100-400 L of water per hectare at 140 kPa spray pressure. Repeat application in 7-10 days but do not apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide more than two times per year.
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide may not be applied within 25 days of harvest.

Snow Peas
Apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide at the rate of 1.75 L/ha plus ASSIST oil concentrate at 1 to 2 L/ha once a year at or after 3-leaf stage of the crop.
Apply by ground in sufficient water volume of 300 L of water per hectare.
Do not apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide within 30 days of harvest.

Turf
For optimum control in tuff, treat when nutsedge is young and actively growing. An additional application may be necessary at an interval of 10 to 14 days. Do not apply more than two applications of BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide per year. For best results, do not mow grass 3 to 5 days before or after application. Do not treat newly-seeded turf until seedlings are well established as injury may result.


ADDITIVES
Use ASSIST Oil Concentrate or XA Oil Concentrate at the rate of 1.0 to 2.0 L/ha (depending on climatic conditions and the spray volume used) for improved control of broadleaf weeds and yellow nutsedge on all crops, Either ClTOWETT PLUS or ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate can be used on peas.

Additives in Soybeans Only
Add 6 L/ha ammonium sulphate or 10 L/ha 28% urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) for improved and more consistent control of velvetleaf and lamb’s-quarters in soybeans. The addition of either form of nitrogen source to BASAGRAN Liquid 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 Liquid Herbicide plus a nitrogen source.

Note: Do not add nitrogen source when tank mixing BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide with PINNACLE and ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate.

Additive in Dry Beans (pinto, great northern, pink and small red)
The addition of ammonium sulphate at 1.5% v/v will result in more consistent weed control. The addition of ammonium sulphate may cause some leaf burn, but new growth is normal and yield is not reduced. The potential for leaf burn is increased when relative humidity and temperature are high. Use with ASSIST Oil Concentrate.
Do not apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide + ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate with the addition of either 28% UREA AMMONIUM NITRATE or AMMONIUM SULPHATE by air.
Do not use any additives not specifically registered under the Pest Control Products Act for use with BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide.


TANK MIX COMBINATIONS
Soybeans
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide can be tank mixed with PINNACLE plus ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate (in soybeans only) for improved control of lamb’s-quarters and redroot pigweed.

Apply once a year, post-emergent and by ground only. Always refer to the REFLEX label for precautions and use limitations.
Do not apply this tank mix within 84 days of harvest.

Spring Wheat (excluding durum)
When tank mixed with 2,4-D amine or ester formulation, BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide will control lady’s-thumb, bluebur, burdock (< 4-leaf), cocklebur, common plantain, daisy fleabane, false flax, flixweed, goat’s beard, lamb’s-quarters, mustard (except dog and tansy), prickly lettuce, ragweed, redroot pigweed, Russian pigweed, Russian thistle, shepherd’s purse, stinging nettle, stinkweed, sweet clover, volunteer canola, wild radish and wild sunflower. All of the above-mentioned broadleaf weeds will be controlled if applied from the weed 2-4 leaf stage. For further details, refer to the BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide Weed Control and Application Rate Table. Always refer to the 2,4-D amine or ester label for precautions and use limitations.


RESISTANCE-MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
For resistance management, BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide is a Group 6 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to BASAGRAN Liquid 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 Liquid 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.


SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS
Ground Application

BASAGRAN LIQUID 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 Liquid Herbicide rate to proportion of the total area to be sprayed.


AIRCRAFT APPLICATIONS
DO NOT APPLY BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide BY AIR TO: Corn, peas, fababeans, peanuts, flax, blueberries, snow peas, turf,newly-planted fruit trees, spring wheat, forage grasses and forage legumes.
Aerial applications are allowed on soybeans, dry and snap common beans only.
Apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide when weeds are in the early stages of growth recommended for treatment. Crop canopy should not be so dense as to prevent spray from thoroughly covering weeds. Use spray volumes, pressure and additives as recommended below:
Spray volume – 50 to 100 L/ha
Spray pressure – minimum 275 kPa
Additives – 0.125 to 0.25 L ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate per hectare
Do not use ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate in excess of 0.25 L/ha as substantial crop injury could occur.
Treat when wind is less than 8 kilometres per hour. Do not apply when weather conditions may cause spray drift from target areas to adjacent crops.
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.

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. Specific buffer zones should be observed.
Coarse sprays are less likely to drift, therefore, avoid combinations of pressure and nozzle type that will result in finer particles (mist). Do not apply during periods 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 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.
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.
Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. If you have questions, call the manufacturer at 1-877-371-BASF (2273) or obtain technical advice from the distributor or your provincial agricultural representative.

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.

Aerial Application
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 8 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) medium 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.

Buffer Zones
Use of the following spray methods or equipment DO NOT require a buffer zone: hand-held or backpack sprayer, interrow hooded sprayer, spot treatment, soil drench and soil incorporation.
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, riparian areas and shrublands).

Method of application – Field sprayer (1)
Crop – Snow peas, peas (field and processing), seedling forage grasses/legumes and established forage legumes (for seed production)
Buffer zone (metres) required for the protection of: Terrestrial Habitat - 1

Method of application – Field sprayer (1)
Crop – Turf, soybeans, corn, peanuts, beans (snap, lima, faba), dry beans, flax, newly planted fruit trees, blueberries, spring wheat
Buffer zone (metres) required for the protection of: Terrestrial Habitat - 2

Method of application – Aerial (fixed and rotary wing)
Crop – Dry common beans
Buffer zone (metres) required for the protection of: Terrestrial Habitat - 20

Method of application – Aerial (fixed wing)
Crop – Soybeans, snap beans
Buffer zone (metres) required for the protection of: Terrestrial Habitat - 35

Method of application – Aerial (rotary wing)
Crop – Soybeans, snap beans
Buffer zone (metres) required for the protection of: Terrestrial Habitat - 30

(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.


MIXING
1. Clean spray tank and fill half full with clean water. Start agitation or by-pass system.
2. If required add correct amount of nitrogen source. Note: Do not add nitrogen source when tank mixing BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide with PINNACLE, REFLEX or 2,4-D amine or ester and ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate.
3. If required, add the correct amount of PINNACLE (for use on soybeans only), REFLEX (for use on dry common beans only) or 2,4-D amine or ester (for use on spring wheat [excluding durum]). Continuous agitation is required to keep PINNACLE, REFLEX or 2,4-D amine or ester in suspension.

NOTE: On repeat tank loads, prepare a PINNACLE/water slurry in a separate container with clean water before adding to spray tank.

4. Add correct amount of BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide and agitate 2 to 3 minutes.
5. Add correct amount of ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate or ClTOWETT PLUS and agitate 2 to 3 minutes. When tank mixing BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide with PINNACLE, REFLEX or 2,4-D amine or ester, only ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate may be used.
6. Add remainder of water, agitate and spray.
7. If an oil film starts to build up in the tank, drain and clean tank with a strong detergent solution.


RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS
Do not treat any crops not listed on this label.
Do not use BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide with additives, pesticides or fertilizers not specifically recommended on this label. NOTE: Do not add nitrogen source when tank mixing BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide with PINNACLE, REFLEX or 2,4-D amine or ester and ASSIST or XA Oil Concentrate.
Do not allow livestock to graze on BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide treated turf.
Do not apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide to any crops that have been subjected to stress from conditions such as hail damage, flooding, hot, humid weather, drought, widely fluctuating temperature conditions, prolonged cold weather or injury from prior herbicide applications, as crop injury may result.
Do not apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide to newly-seeded turf until seedlings are well established.
Rainfall within 6 to 8 hours of application may reduce effectiveness of spray.
When BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide is applied beyond recommended weed growth stages, limited to unsatisfactory weed control will result.
Cool weather conditions or drought will delay herbicide activity and if prolonged, may result in poor weed control.
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide and PINNACLE tank mix is registered for use in soybeans only (ground application only).
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide and REFLEX tank mix (ground application only) is registered in dry common beans only.
BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide and 2,4-D amine or ester tank mix is registered for use in spring wheat (excluding durum) only. Do not apply this tank mix by air. A fifty (50) day pre-harvest interval is required after application, before harvesting the treated crop.
Do not apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide within 36 days of harvest of red clover grown for seed production


WARNING
Do not apply BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide when weather conditions may cause spray drift from treated areas to adjacent crops.
Lentils, adzuki and mung beans, cucumbers, sugar beets and sunflowers can be injured by BASAGRAN Liquid Herbicide.


ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS
The use of this chemical may result in contamination of groundwater, particularly in areas where soils are permeable (e.g. sandy soil) or the water table is shallow.
DO NOT apply this product directly to freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands), or to estuarine/marine habitats.
DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
TOXIC to non-target terrestrial plants. Observe buffer zones specified under SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT FOR GROUND AND AERIAL APPLICATION.


PRECAUTIONS
1. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
2. Do not take internally.
3. Avoid inhalation of vapour, dust or spray mist.
