Eclipse II A
This component must only be used in the Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix is a post emergent herbicide tank-mix intended for dilution with water and for use on glyphosate tolerant canola only. It is readily absorbed by both foliage and roots and translocates both upwards and downwards in plants. The tank-mix provides season long control of Canada thistle and control
of other annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds.
Do not treat weeds under poor growing conditions such as drought stress, disease or insect damage, as reduced weed control may result. Reduced results may also occur when treating weeds heavily covered with dust.
Heavy rainfall immediately after application may wash the chemical off the foliage. Do not apply if rainfall is forecast for the time of application.
Do not mix with any surfactant, pesticide, herbicide oils or any other material other than water unless specified in this booklet. For best results, spray coverage should be uniform and complete. Do not spray weed foliage to the point of runoff.
MIXING AND APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS
AVOID CONTACT WITH FRUIT OF CROPS, DESIRABLE PLANTS AND TREES SINCE SEVERE INJURY OR DESTRUCTION MAY RESULT.
APPLY THESE SPRAY SOLUTIONS IN PROPERLY MAINTAINED AND CALIBRATED EQUIPMENT CAPABLE OF DELIVERING DESIRED VOLUMES.
Do not use in greenhouses.
Apply only when the potential for drift to areas of human habitation or areas of human activity (such as houses, cottages, schools and recreational areas) is minimal. Take into consideration wind speed, wind direction, temperature inversions, application equipment sprayer settings.
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 American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) medium classification. Boom height must be 60 cm or less above the crop or ground.
DO NOT apply by air.
AVOID DRIFT - EXTREME CARE MUST BE USED WHEN APPLYING THIS TANK-MIX TO PREVENT INJURING DESIRABLE PLANTS AND CROPS. Do not allow spray mist to drift since even minute quantities of spray can cause severe damage or destruction to nearby crops, plants or other areas on which treatment is not intended, or may cause other unintended consequences. Do not apply when winds are gusty or in excess of 8 km/h or when other conditions, including lesser wind velocities, will allow drift to occur. When spraying, avoid combinations of pressure and nozzle type that will result in fine particles (mist) which are more likely to drift.
Residues of Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix can remain in the soil following the year of use, thereby affecting growth of sensitive crops. See crop rotation section.
APPLY ECLIPSE II HERBICIDE TANK-MIX ON GLYPHOSATE TOLERANT CANOLA VARIETIES ONLY.
ALWAYS USE PEDIGREED (I.E. CERTIFIED) GLYPHOSATE TOLERANT CANOLA SEED. CANOLA WHICH IS NOT DESIGNATED AS GLYPHOSATE TOLERANT WILL BE DAMAGED OR DESTROYED BY THIS TREATMENT.
Some short-term, visual yellowing may occur when Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix is applied at the late application 4 to 6 leaf stage of the crop. This effect is temporary and will not influence crop growth, maturity or yield.
REDUCED RESULTS MAY OCCUR IF WATER CONTAINING SOIL IS USED, SUCH AS WATER FROM PONDS AND UNLINED DITCHES.
Clean sprayer and parts immediately after using this herbicide tank-mix by thoroughly flushing with water. Do not contaminate water sources by disposal of wastes or cleaning of equipment.
Use of this herbicide tank-mix in any manner not consistent with this booklet may result in injury to persons, animals or crops, or other unintended consequences. Keep containers closed to prevent spills and contamination.
Fields previously treated with Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix can be seeded the following year to wheat, oats, barley, rye (not underseeded with legumes, clover or alfalfa), forage grasses, flax, canola, mustard, field peas, or it can be summerfallowed. Seed only those crops listed above in the year following treatment. Do not seed to field peas for at least 10 months following treatment. Very dry soil conditions following application can result in a risk of injury to field peas grown in rotation. If severe drought conditions are experienced during the months of June to August inclusive in the year of application, delay seeding field peas an additional 12 months (total 22 months following application). Contact your local Dow AgroSciences Canada representative or retailer for more information before seeding field peas following drought conditions in the previous year.
Do not seed to crops other than those listed above in the calendar year following treatment.
Do not seed to field peas for at least 10 months following treatment.
Allow 3 to 5 days before grazing treated areas.
Avoid contamination of non-target land, water or irrigation ditches. Do not use Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix in the following areas: standing or flowing water, the inner banks or bottoms of irrigation ditches; in areas where surface water can run off to adjacent croplands either planted or to be planted to sensitive crops
Manure and Straw
Residues of the herbicide tank-mix occurring in the straw may be harmful to susceptible plants; therefore, do not use straw or crop residue from treated crops for composting or mulching susceptible broadleaved crops.
If the straw or crop residue is used for animal bedding or feed, return the manure to fields to be planted to clopyralid tolerant crops such as wheat, barley, oats, rye, forage grasses, canola or flax. Do not grow susceptible crops such as peas, beans, lentils, potatoes, sunflowers or other sensitive crops on land which has been mulched with straw containing clopyralid residues within the last 12 months.
MIXING AND APPLICATION EQUIPMENT INFORMATION
To Reduce Spray Drift:
1. Use nozzles that deliver higher volumes and coarser droplets.
2. Use low pressures (200 to 275 kPa).
3. Use 100 L/ha of spray solution.
4. Spray when the wind velocity is 8 km/hr or less.
Equipment used to apply Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix should not be used to apply other pesticides to sensitive crops without thorough cleaning. Contact your Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix dealer for a detailed equipment cleaning procedure.
MIXING AND APPLICATION DIRECTIONS
To prepare the spray solution, first add Eclipse II A Herbicide to the spray tank. Once it is half filled with water, add Eclipse II B Herbicide as the remaining water is put into the spray tank.
Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix will control the annual and perennial weeds listed in the table below. Apply 0.28 L/ha of Eclipse II A Herbicide and 0.94 L/ha of Eclipse II B Herbicide in 100 L of water per hectare. Apply when canola is in the 2-6 leaf stage. Ensure the crop has not advanced beyond the recommended growth stage.
Uses of the following spray method or equipment DOES NOT require a buffer zone: hand-held 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, woodlots, hedgerows, riparian areas and shrublands).
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 label for those tank-mix partners.
RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
For resistance management, please note that Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix is both a Group 4 and a Group 9 herbicide. Any weed population may contain plants naturally resistant to Group 4 and/or Group 9 herbicides.
The resistant biotypes may dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly in the same fields.
To delay herbicide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of Eclipse II Herbicide Tank-Mix or other Group 4 and Group 9 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 resistancemanagement and/or integrated weed-management recommendations for specific crops and weed biotypes.
