DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
For resistance management, EMBUTOX Liquid Herbicide is a Group 4 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to EMBUTOX Liquid Herbicide and other Group 4 herbicides. The resistant biotypes may dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly in the same field. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action, but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
To delay herbicide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of EMBUTOX Liquid Herbicide or other Group 4 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 resistance-management and/or integrated weed-management recommendations for specific crops and weed biotypes.
GENERAL USE PRECAUTIONS:
EMBUTOX Liquid Herbicide may cause damage to susceptible crop, ornamental, and other plants, even in minute quantities. Avoid spray drift to any desirable vegetation. Coarse sprays are less likely to drift. Do not spray during periods of high winds. Do not graze or cut treated crops for forage until 30 days after application. DO NOT APPLY BY AIR.
To ensure even mixing, half fill the sprayer tank with clean water, add the required amount of EMBUTOX Liquid Herbicide and agitate thoroughly. Add the remainder of the water and agitate before spraying. Wash sprayer thoroughly after use.
EQUIPMENT AND SPRAY VOLUME:
Apply in 150 to 200 litres of water per hectare by ground equipment. Higher water volumes will reduce the risk of crop injury. Use spray nozzles and pressures that deliver a medium to coarse quality spray. Avoid generating fine, driftable droplets.
EMBUTOX Liquid Herbicide may be recommended in tank mix with other products. Consult the label of the tank mix partner product, and follow the most stringent set of precautions, restrictions and directions for use.
CROPS, TIMING, RATES AND METHODS OF APPLICATION:
Use the dose required to control the weeds present. To minimize the risk of crop injury, do not exceed the recommended rate listed for the crop. Higher rates may be required to control certain weed species. Rates above those recommended for a crop may result in significant crop injury, and should only be used when the risk of crop injury will be offset by the benefits of enhanced weed control. Apply in warm weather when the crop and weeds are growing well, and the weeds are at a susceptible stage. Avoid application during drought conditions or during exceptionally hot weather.
WEEDS CONTROLLED WITH 1.75 L PER HECTARE EMBUTOX LIQUID HERBICIDE:
Stinkweed, Ragweed, Redroot pigweed, Shepherd’s-purse, Lamb’s-quarters, Wormseed mustard, Ball mustard, Wild mustard (1).
Spray when the weeds are in the seedling stage. Resistance increases with age.
(1) Wild mustard plants beyond the 4-leaf stage are not likely to be controlled by EMBUTOX Liquid Herbicide alone. For better wild mustard and narrow-leaved hawk’s-beard control in seedling alfalfa and Bird’s-foot trefoil, EMBUTOX Liquid Herbicide at the reduced rate of 1.25 L/ha may be tank-mixed with MCPA amine salt at 35 g active ingredient/ha (for example, 70 ml/ha of MCPA Amine 500). This tank-mix may increase crop stunting.
