NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide is a systemic, post-emergence herbicide for the selective control of wild oats, volunteer (tame) oats, green foxtail, yellow foxtail, barnyard grass, Persian darnel and volunteer canary seed in all types of spring wheat and Durum wheat. Do not use NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide on barley, as crop injury will occur. Do not apply this product using aerial application equipment except under conditions specified on this label. NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide is absorbed by the leaves and is rapidly translocated to the growing points of leaves and stems. Thorough coverage of the plants is essential for consistent control. Actively growing susceptible grasses stop growing within 48 hours of treatment. Depending on species, growing conditions and crop competition, leaves and growing points turn yellow within one to three weeks after application. Further colour changes and loss of vigour will be observed, followed by a browning and complete control three to five weeks after application. Although NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide does not control broadleaf weeds, NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide can be tank-mixed with a wide range of broadleaf herbicides to provide broad-spectrum weed control in wheat. See section entitled “TANK MIXES of NUFARM CLODINAFOP HERBICIDE WITH BROADLEAF WEED HERBICIDES” and refer to the appropriate Tank Mix section for ground and aerial application.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
As this product is not registered for the control of pests in aquatic systems, DO NOT use to control aquatic pests. DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes. 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. Avoid application of 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.
For resistance management, NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide is a Group 1 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide and other Group 1 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 resistancemanagement strategies should be followed.
To delay herbicide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide or other Group 1 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.
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), sensitive freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands) and estuarine/marine habitats.
For tank mixes, consult the labels of the tank-mix partners and observe the largest (most restrictive) buffer zone of the products involved in the tank mixture and apply using the coarsest spray (ASAE) category indicated on the labels for those tank mix partners.
APPLICATION AND MIXING INSTRUCTIONS:
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS-GROUND OR AERIAL APPLICATION:
1. Clean spray tank and half fill with clean water. Start agitation or bypass system.
2. If a broadleaf herbicide is to be used, add the product FIRST prior to adding NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide and agitate for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add correct amount of NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide.
4. Agitate for 2-3 minutes.
5. Add correct amount of Nufarm Enhance, Signal Adjuvant or Score.
6. Agitate for 1-2 minutes before adding remainder of water and then maintain constant agitation
7. After any break in spraying operations, agitate thoroughly before spraying again.
8. Use the spray suspension as soon as it is prepared.
9. If an oil film starts to build up in the tank, drain tank and then clean with a detergent.
SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS - GROUND APPLICATION:
1. NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide can be applied by ground or air. For aerial application instructions, refer to the section entitled “SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS - AERIAL APPLICATION” which follows this section.
2. Water Volume: 50 to 100 litres per hectare when applied alone and a minimum of 100L/ ha when tank-mixed with broadleaf herbicides
3. Spray Nozzles: 80 or 110 flat fan stainless steel nozzles are recommended for optimal spray coverage. Application of the spray mixture at a 45 angle in the direction of travel will result in improved spray coverage. Use 50 mesh nozzle screens. Do not use flood type nozzles, controlled droplet application equipment, spray foils, or hollow cone nozzles.
4. Pressure: 275-310 kPa.
5. Apply uniformly at 6-8 km/hr and avoid overlapping. Shut off spray boom while starting, turning, slowing or stopping to prevent crop injury from an over application.
6. Do not contaminate streams, rivers, lakes, ponds, wetlands, sloughs, irrigation water, vegetated ditch banks, and water used by livestock or for domestic purposes. Do not apply within 15 meters of a wetland area or any of the aforementioned bodies of water.
SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS - AERIAL APPLICATION:
1. NUFARM CLODINAFOP Herbicide can be applied by ground or by air. For ground application instructions, refer to the section entitled “SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS – GROUND APPLICATION” which precedes this section.
2. Water Volume - Aerial application: Minimum of 30 litres per hectare when applied alone or when tank mixed with Buctril M.
3. Ensure uniform application. To avoid uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices. Do not use human flaggers.
4. Aerial drift is increased under certain meteorological conditions. DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 15 km/hr 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, with a volume medium diameter (VMD) greater than 350 microns. To reduce drift caused by turbulent wingtip vortices, the nozzle distribution along the spray boom length MUST NOT exceed 65% of the wing or rotor-span.

4. If a broadleaf tank-mix partner is used, always check tank-mix partner label for any additional clean up procedures.
Generic Aerial Application Label Instructions
Directions for Use
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. No human flaggers are permitted.
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 combinations of pressure and nozzle type that will result in fine 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.
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 coveralls over a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, chemical resistant gloves 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.
