For use in WHEAT (spring, durum & winter), BARLEY, OATS, FLAX (including low linolenic acid varieties), CORN, FALL RYE, CANARY SEED (for seed production), TRITICALE, GARLIC, ONION (dry bulb only), SEEDLING ALFALFA, ESTABLISHED ALFALFA (for seed production only), SEEDLING GRASSES, FORAGE and GRAIN SORGHUM, FORAGE MILLET, GRAIN PEARL MILLET as a pre-seed/pre-plant application prior to planting CANOLA and ZERO TILL

TIMING: For best results spray when weeds are in the seedling stage. Apply in good growing conditions. Application must be made before the crop shields the weeds.
SPRAYER: Wash the tank and clean all filters, screens and tips. Select nozzle tips to apply the recommended volume of water per hectare. Flood jet type tips are not recommended. Adjust boom height to ensure uniform coverage of weeds.
MIXING: Half fill the tank with clean water. Add the required amount of COMPAS 480 EC Herbicide and agitate thoroughly. Fill the tank and agitate again before use.
- 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.
- Spray at 5 - 10 km/h.
- Ensure that all tips are in good condition and spraying the same volume.

AERIAL APPLICATION (Wheat and Barley only):
- 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.

Aerial 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 contaminate irrigation/drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
- 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.
- Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty.
- DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 16 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 wingspan or rotorspan.

Aerial Application 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. 

Product Specific Precautions:
- Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. If you have questions, call the manufacturer at 1-888-283-6847 or obtain technical advice from the distributor or your provincial agricultural representative. Application of this specific product must meet and/or conform to the following:
Volume: COMPAS 480 EC Herbicide plus either MCPA or 2,4-D must be applied in volume rates of not less than 20 L/ha. For best results when there is a heavy crop canopy, or when the majority of the weeds are cow cockle, green or pale smartweed, hempnettle, redroot pigweed or Canada thistle, a volume rate of 40 L/ha is recommended.
