STORAGE
STORE  ABOVE  5 C  TO  KEEP  PRODUCT  FROM  FREEZING.   If cfrozen, thaw before use. If solid crystals are observed, warm material to above 15 C by placing container in warm location. Shake or roll container periodically to redissolve solids.
Do not use or store near heat or open flame.
Store in original containers only. Store in a dry location. Carefully open containers. After partial use, replace lids and close tightly. Do not put concentrate or dilute material into food or drink containers. Do not contaminate other pesticides, fertilizers, water, food, or feed by storage or disposal.

DISPOSAL
1. Triple-or pressure-rinse the empty container. Add the rinsings to the spray mixture in the tank.
2. Follow provincial instructions for any required additional cleaning of the container prior to its disposal.
3. Make the empty container unsuitable for further use.
4. Dispose of the container in accordance with provincial requirements.
5. 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.
NOTICE TO USER: This pest control product is to be used only in accordance with the directions on the label. It is an offence under the Pest Control Products Act to use this product in a way that is inconsis- tent with the directions on the label. The user assumes the risk to persons or property that arises from any such use of this product.

SPRAY DRIFT MITIGATION MEASURES
Spray drift is influenced by many factors, including wind speed, spray pressure, particle size, nozzle type, and applicator boom height. To minimize the risk of off-site migration from spray drift.
Use a low sprayer pressure – Do not exceed 207kPa spray pressure.
Select an operating pressure and volume that meet a droplet size classification of coarse or greater. Consider using low-drift nozzles.
Do not apply during periods of dead calm, or when winds are gusty or in excess of 16km/hr.
Minimize sprayer boom height while maintaining a uniform spray pattern.
Apply during calmer periods of the day (e.g., early morning or late in day).
Do not apply during a temperature inversion (see text on TEMPERATURE INVERSIONS).

ROTATIONAL CROPPING PRECAUTIONS
NOTE: When using Command 360 ME with other registered herbi- cides always refer to rotational restrictions and precautions on the other product’s label.
Under some conditions, temporary whitening or yellowing of leaves may occur on approved rotational crops where undesirable soil residues of Command 360ME exist.
Under abnormal conditions, carryover injury to rotational crops can occur. The following factors can contribute to increased risk of injury to rotational crops:
1)   Exceeding label recommendedrates.
2)   Overapplication resulting from use of worn nozzles, excessive over¬lapping of spray swaths, failing to shut off spray booms when turning (end row areas), or slowing or stoppingsprayer.
3)   Soil with pH less than or equal to5.9.
4)   Extreme dryness in the four months followingapplication.
5)   Choice of rotational crophybrid.
Additional recommendations to prevent rotational crop injury may be provided in the form of service bulletins for locations where risk of injury is significantly increased due to extremely dry conditions.
Following Spring - Soybeans, beans (white, kidney, snap), corn (field, sweet), peas, peppers (transplant, plugs), broccoli (transplant, plugs), cucumbers, melons, pumpkins, squash, potatoes, spring canola
16 months - All other crops
Under normal conditions, COMMAND 360ME will not harm approved crops grown in rotation. Compaction, non-uniform tillage, seedling disease, cold weather, deep planting, excessive moisture, or drought may weaken crop seedlings and increase risk of damage from COMMAND 360ME, resulting in delayed crop development or reduced yield. Drought conditions in the year prior to seeding rotational crops may result in higher levels of COMMAND 360ME in the soil. To reduce the possibility of injury to rotational crops, use good agronomic practices.
Use a well-maintained, properly calibrated sprayer set to apply COMMAND 360ME at recommended rates and water volumes. Do not exceed label recommended rates. Avoid overlapping or situations resulting in excessive application, which could result in crop and /or rotational crop injury.

GENERAL MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
Care must be taken when mixing Command 360ME herbicide. Avoid mixing in areas adjacent to desirable plants.
Command 360ME Alone: Mix Command 360ME with water or liquid fertilizer in the following manner: Fill the spray tank one-half to three- fourths full with water or liquid fertilizer, add the proper amount of Command 360ME, then add the rest of the water or liquid fertilizer.
Provide sufficient agitation during mixing and application to maintain a uniform spray mixture.
Tank Mixtures: Fill spray tank one-fourth to one-third full with water; with agitator operating add the recommended amount of ingredients using the following order: dry formulations (e.g., wettable powders, dry flowables) first, liquid suspensions (e.g., flowables) next and finally liquids (e.g., EC’s). Mix thoroughly and fill tank one-half full continuing agitation. Add Command 360ME herbicide to tank while maintaining agitation. Complete filling the sprayer tank with water. Where use of a surfactant is recommended, add as the last ingredient to the spray tank. Maintain agitation during filling, mixing and application. When using drift reducing agents, follow specific product label instructions for order of addition to spray tank.
