This component must only be used in Eclipse III Herbicide

GENERAL INFORMATION
Eclipse III Herbicide 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 III Herbicide can remain in the soil following the year of use, thereby affecting growth of sensitive crops. See crop rotation section.

APPLY ECLIPSE III HERBICIDE 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 III Herbicide 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.

Crop Rotation
Fields previously treated with Eclipse III Herbicide can be seeded the following year to wheat, oats, barley, rye (not underseeded with legumes, clover or alfalfa), forage grasses, flax, canola, corn, mustard, sugar beets, 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.

Grazing
Allow 3 to 5 days before grazing treated areas.

Non-Target Sites
Avoid contamination of non-target land, water or irrigation ditches. Do not use Eclipse III Herbicide 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 Clean-Up
Equipment used to apply Eclipse III Herbicide should not be used to apply other pesticides to sensitive crops without thorough cleaning. Contact your Eclipse III Herbicide dealer for a detailed equipment cleaning procedure.

MIXING AND APPLICATION DIRECTIONS
Spray Preparation
To prepare the spray solution, first add Eclipse III A Herbicide to the spray tank. Once it is half filled with water, add Eclipse III B Herbicide as the remaining water is put into the spray tank.

Application Rates
Eclipse III Herbicide will control the annual and perennial weeds listed in the table below. Apply 0.28 L/ha of Eclipse III A Herbicide and 0.94 L/ha of Eclipse III 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.

Weeds Controlled
Annual Grasses: wild oats, green foxtail, volunteer barley, volunteer wheat
Annual Broad-leaved Weeds: stinkweed, redroot pigweed, wild mustard, Russian thistle, lamb's-quarters, non-glyphosate tolerant volunteer canola (rapeseed), hempnettle, lady's thumb, kochia, chickweed, corn spurry, wild tomato, cleavers, wild buckwheat, shepherd's purse, cow cockle, night-flowering catchfly, smartweed

BUFFER ZONES
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).

Method of Application: Field sprayer
Crop: Canola
Buffer Zones (metres) Required for the Protection of Terrestrial Habitat: 2
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.

NOTE: Applicators may recalculate a site-specific buffer zone by combining information on current weather conditions and spray configuration for the following applications: all airblast applications, and for field and aerial applications which specify the following droplet size category wording on the product label: ‘DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) [Fine or Medium or Coarse] classification.’ To access the Buffer Zone Calculator, please visit the Pest Management Regulatory Agency web site.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
For resistance management, please note that Eclipse III Herbicide is both a Group 4 and a Group 9 herbicide. Any weed population may contain plants naturally resistant to Group 4 and/or Group 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 III Herbicide or other Group 4 and Group 9 herbicides within a growing season (sequence) or among growing seasons 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. To delay resistance, the less resistance-prone partner should control the target weed(s) as effectively as the more resistance-prone partner.
Herbicide use should be based on an integrated weed management program that includes scouting, historical information related to herbicide use and crop rotation, and considers tillage (or other mechanical control methods), cultural (for example, higher crop seeding rates; precision fertilizer application method and timing to favour the crop and not the weeds), biological (weed-competitive crops or varieties) and other management practices.
Monitor weed populations after herbicide application for signs of resistance development (for example, only one weed species on the herbicide label not controlled). If resistance is suspected, prevent weed seed production in the affected area if possible by an alternative herbicide from a different group. Prevent movement of resistant weed seeds to other fields by cleaning harvesting and tillage equipment when moving between fields, and planting clean seed.
Have suspected resistant weed seeds tested by a qualified laboratory to confirm resistance and identify alternative herbicide options.
Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or integrated weed-management recommendations for specific crops and weed biotypes.
