PRODUCT INFORMATION
Craven is a non-volatile, fast acting herbicide. It is inactivated on contact with the soil and therefore, has no residual effect. The herbicidal effect varies with weed species, hence repeat applications may be necessary upon certain perennial weeds. Annual weeds are generally killed with one application.
Germination of seed is not affected by Craven for all crops which could go for seed sale.
Craven is easily applied in high or low volume sprayers. Very low volume or ultra low volume equipment for aerial application, e.g. rotary atomizer nozzles such as MICRONAIR, are not recommended. Flat fan or hollow cone nozzles are recommended for optimum results. Always use recommended water volume. Complete coverage is essential. DO NOT USE MIST BLOWERS.
Craven is rapidly absorbed by plants, and effectiveness is not reduced by rain falling shortly after treatment. EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TREATMENT MAY BE ENHANCED WHEN APPLICATION IS MADE ON CLOUDY DAYS OR PRIOR TO PERIODS OF DARKNESS.
Use clean (non-turbid) water for spraying Craven. Muddy water will reduce the effectiveness of Craven.
THE USER MUST BE AWARE THAT THIS PRODUCT ACCELERATES THE NATURAL PROCESS OF CROP DRY DOWN. IN CASES OF ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS SUCH AS HEAVY RAIN, HAIL OR STRONG WIND, THE RESULTANT DAMAGE TO YOUR CROP MAY BE ENHANCED. TAKE NOTE THAT CERTAIN CROPS ARE MORE FRAGILE THAN OTHERS.
Crop waste remaining after harvest (e.g. pea vines, alfalfa stems) may be used as a feed supplement for livestock.

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.
Refer to the following table for a summary of rates, application volumes and growth stages for ground and aerial application of Craven. The table provides operational information. The applicator is directed to the CROPS-ADDITIONAL NOTES section for any additional information prior to spraying. Ground spraying may be done with any standard boom sprayer.
When tank mixing, always read the labels of the tank mix partners and follow all directions for use, restrictions and precautions.
Apply only when the potential for drift to areas of human habitation or areas of human activity such as houses, cottages, schools and parks is minimal. Take into consideration meteorological conditions (e.g. wind speed, wind direction, temperature inversion) and application equipment and sprayer settings used for application.
Mixers and loaders supporting aerial applications are required to use closed systems.
Field sprayer application: DO NOT apply during period 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. Suggested conditions for good aerial application are moderate temperatures (less than 25 C) and humidity (greater than 50%). DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 9 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 minimize spray drift, use flat fan or hollow cone nozzles, and a pressure of 150-200 kPa, with the nozzle pointed back 150-180. 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.
For application to rights-of-way, buffer zones for production of sensitive terrestrial habitats are not required; however, the best available application strategies which minimize off-site drift, including meteorological conditions (e.g. wind direction, low wind speed) and spray equipment (e.g. coarse droplet sizes, minimizing height above canopy), should be used. Applicators must, however, observe the specified buffer zones for protection of sensitive aquatic habitats.
Use AGRAL 90, a wetting and spreading agent, at a rate of 1 L for each 1000 L of spray mixture unless otherwise stated. For beans (white and red kidney, soybeans and adzuki beans) or lentils, LI 700 at a rate of 2.5 L for each 1000 L of spray mixture may be used. See potato vine killing use for detailed information on use of adjuvant on potatoes in the prairie provinces.
AGITATE WELL BEFORE USE

GROUND APPLICATION
Ground spraying may be done with any standard boom sprayer.

AERIAL APPLICATION
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.
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. 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.
Operator Precautions
Do not allow the pilot to mix chemicals to be loaded onto the aircraft. Loading of premixed chemicals are required to use a closed system.
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 coveralls over a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, chemical-resistant gloves and footwear, goggles and a respirator during mixing/loading, clean-up and repair, and chemical-resistant headgear for overhead applications.
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 1-87-SYNGENTA (1-877-964-3682) 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: Apply the recommended rate in a minimum spray volume of 45 litres per hectare.
Refer to ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS for additional details.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
AIRCRAFT APPLICATION IS NOT RECOMMENDED WHERE WETLANDS OR WILDLIFE COVER MIGHT BE OVERSPRAYED. AVOID SPRAY DRIFT ONTO ADJACENT CROPS, SHELTER BELTS AND WILDLIFE COVER. AVOID OVERSPRAYING OR DRIFT ONTO SLOUGHS.
SINCE HERBICIDE APPLICATION MAY DAMAGE THE HABITAT OF MIGRATORY BIRDS AND OTHER WILDLIFE SPECIES, DO NOT USE AERIAL APPLICATION IN FIELDS WHERE WETLANDS OR OTHER GOOD WILDLIFE COVER MIGHT BE OVERSPRAYED; THIS INCLUDES SLOUGHS AND DRY SLOUGH MARGINS IN WESTERN CANADA. USE GROUND SPRAYERS AND LEAVE AN UNSPRAYED MARGIN OF 15 M AROUND THE BORDER OF ALL SLOUGHS.
Apply in weather conditions that will not promote drift. Suggested conditions for good aerial application are moderate temperatures (less than 25 C), humidity (greater than 50%), and wind 3.5-9 kph at flying height at the site of application. Do not apply in dead calm conditions or when temperature inversion is likely (e.g. evening when warm air is rising from crop or morning when sunshine warms the soil and air rises from the field). To avoid spray drift, use flat fan or hollow cone nozzles, and a pressure of 150-200 kPa, with the nozzles pointed back 150-180.
