CRESTIVO Herbicide is a systemic, post-emergence herbicide for the selective control of wild oats, green foxtail, yellow foxtail, Persian darnel, volunteer oats, volunteer canary seed, proso millet and barnyard grass in Spring Wheat, Durum Wheat and Barley in the prairie provinces and the Interior of British Columbia.
CRESTIVO 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 control three to five weeks after application.
Although CRESTIVO Herbicide does not control broadleaf weeds, CRESTIVO Herbicide can be tank-mixed with a range of broadleaf herbicides to provide broad spectrum weed control in Spring Wheat, Durum Wheat and Barley. See section entitled “TANK MIXES of CRESTIVO HERBICIDE WITH BROADLEAF WEED HERBICIDES” and refer to the appropriate Tank Mix section.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
CROPS: Spring Wheat, Durum Wheat and Barley.
CRESTIVO Herbicide can be used on all varieties of Spring Wheat, Durum Wheat and Barley.
One application per year is permitted.
Observe a minimum interval to harvest of 60 days after treatment for grain and straw and of 30 days after treatment for hay. Observe a minimum of 7 days before grazing livestock on crops treated with CRESTIVO Herbicide.
Do not apply on any crop other than Spring Wheat or Durum Wheat or Barley, as crop damage will result. Do not allow spray to drift to adjacent fields seeded to crops other than Spring Wheat or Durum Wheat or Barley. Do not treat Spring Wheat or Durum Wheat or Barley underseeded to forages. Do not apply CRESTIVO Herbicide on highly sensitive crops such as: Tame Oats, Proso Millet, Red Millet, Crown Millet or Canary Seed.
Field sprayer application: 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 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 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 wing- or rotorspan.
To reduce runoff from treated areas into aquatic habitats, consider the characteristics and conditions of the site before treatment. Site characteristics and conditions that may lead to runoff include, but are not limited to: heavy rain, moderate to steep slope, bare soil, poorly draining soil (e.g. soils that are compacted or fine textured such as clay).
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 between the treated area and the edge of the water body.
ROTATIONAL CROP INFORMATION
For fields treated with CRESTIVO Herbicide, no crop may be seeded until the following year. There are no crop rotation limitations the year following application of CRESTIVO Herbicide.
RATE OF USE:
Apply the recommended rate of CRESTIVO Herbicide and ADIGOR Adjuvant or Merge in 50 L to 100L of water per hectare for ground application and in a minimum of 30 L of water per hectare for aerial application. When tank-mixing CRESTIVO Herbicide with a tank-mix partner, ensure you read the tank-mix partner label for minimum water recommendations.
NOTES: Do not tank mix with any other adjuvants, chemical additives, pesticides or fertilizers unless recommended on this label.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR GROUND 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 CRESTIVO Herbicide and agitate for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add correct amount of CRESTIVO Herbicide.
4. Agitate for 2-3 minutes.
5. Add correct amount of ADIGOR Adjuvant or MERGE Adjuvant.
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.
Instruction for Aerial Application
Apply CRESTIVO Herbicide alone or in tank mixes (ONLY with the recommended tank mix partners that are registered for aerial use) in no less than 30 litres of water per hectare.
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.
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 nontarget 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 particules (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 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 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.
