Store product in original container only, away from other pesticides, fertilizer, food or feed. Not for use or storage in or around the home. Keep container closed. Keep product container away from moisture.

Disposal of Container: DO NOT reuse this container for any purpose. This is a recyclable container, and is to be disposed of at a container collection site. Contact your local distributor/dealer or municipality for the location of the nearest collection site. Before taking the container to the collection site:
1. Triple- or pressure-rinse the empty container. Add the rinsings to the spray mixture in the tank.
2. Make the empty, rinsed container unsuitable for further use.
If there is no container collection site in your area, dispose of the container in accordance with provincial requirements.
For information on disposal of unused, unwanted product, contact the manufacturer or the provincial regulatory agency. Contact the manufacturer and the provincial regulatory agency in case of a spill, and for clean-up of spills.

Injury to or loss of desirable trees or vegetation may result from failure to observe the following: Do not apply or drain or flush equipment on or near desirable trees or other plants, or on areas where their roots may extend, or in locations where the chemical may be washed or moved into contact with their roots. Do not use on lawns, walks, driveways, tennis courts, or similar areas. Prevent drift of spray to desirable plants. Do not contaminate any body of water, including irrigation water. Keep from contact with fertilizers, insecticides, fungicides and seeds.
Do not handle pesticides with bare hands. Chemical-resistant gloves significantly reduce hand exposure. Wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, a hat and enclosed boots during all activities. When handling the concentrate wear the previously mentioned clothing, chemical resistant gloves and goggles or a face shield. If ventilation is not adequate, wear an appropriate pesticide respirator.
Carefully observe sprayer cleanup instructions, as spray tank residue may damage crops other than corn.

ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide is a soluble granule formulation to be mixed in water and applied either pre- or post-emergence to field corn in Eastern Canada for control of annual grasses, quackgrass, redroot pigweed, and lamb’s quarters. ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide is non-corrosive, non-flammable, non-volatile, and does not freeze.

Make only one application per year.
Do not re-enter treated fields until 12 hours after application.
Apply only when the potential for drift to areas of human habitation or areas of human activity (houses, cottages, schools and recreational areas) is minimal. Take into consideration wind speed, wind direction, temperature, application equipment and sprayer settings.
DO NOT apply this product directly to freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs, ditches and wetlands), estuaries or marine habitats.
DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
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.
DO NOT apply by air.

A rapid fluctuation in temperature (greater than 20 C difference within 24-36 hours) will stress the corn crop. For maximum crop safety, allow 48-72 hours for the corn to acclimatize before spraying ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide.
For ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide used alone or in a tank mix, apply ONLY when the temperature in the 24 hours before AND after application ranges between 5 C and 28 C. Temperatures beyond this range increase the potential for crop injury.
Ensure that the boom is set at the proper height in relation to the corn plants to apply ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide accurately and uniformly, and to AVOID excessive application into the corn whorl.
WARNING: Crop injury may result if application is made to corn that has been stressed by abnormally hot, humid or cold weather conditions, frost, low fertility, drought, water saturated soil, compacted soil, previous pesticide applications, disease or insect damage. If corn has been injured by frost, wait 48-72 hours before applying ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide.
When tank mixing ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide with a broadleaf herbicide, always read the broadleaf herbicide label before using and follow all precautions.
ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide rapidly stops growth of susceptible species; typical symptoms usually appear within 5-7 days, but may not be noticeable for 2-3 weeks after application, depending on growing conditions and weed susceptibility.
Warm, moist conditions following application promote the activity of ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide, while cool and/or dry conditions may reduce or delay activity. Weeds hardened off by cold weather or drought stress may not be controlled.
Weed control may be reduced if corn canopy has closed over the weeds, intercepting the spray.

1. Fill clean tank about 1/3 full with fresh water.
2. Turn on full agitation.
3. With the agitator running, add the required amount of ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide. Continue to agitate for a minimum of 5 minutes to ensure that ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide is completely dissolved.
4. Once granules are dissolved continue to fill the tank to 2/3 to 3/4 full, then add the required amount of the tank mix partner.
5. After ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide (and tank mixed herbicide if applicable) has been well mixed and is in suspension, add a recommended non-ionic surfactant such as CITOWETT PLUS, AGRAL 90, or AG-SURF at 2 L per 1000 L spray solution (0.2 % v/v).
6. Fill the remainder of the spray tank.
7. For repeat tank loads, reduce the material remaining in the tank to 10% of the original volume or less before proceeding with step 1, because remaining chemicals may prevent ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide granules from completely dissolving. If this is not possible, pre-slurry ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide in a small amount (5-10 L) of water before adding to the tank.
Agitation is required for uniform mixing and application. The optimum water volume for ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide application is 140 - 190 litres of water per hectare (minimum of 100 litres of water per hectare). Use a spray pressure of 175 - 275 kPa. Flat fan nozzles are recommended. Use 50 mesh filter screens or larger. Use spray preparation of ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide within 24 hours or product degradation may occur resulting in a loss of weed control. Use vigorous agitation to thoroughly disperse spray mixtures that have been allowed to stand in the tank.
NOTE: ENGARDE 25 SG Herbicide will degrade in acidic or highly alkaline water. Mix no more than can be used in one day. If spraying is interrupted, thoroughly re-agitate the spray mixture before resuming spraying.
In some cases, tank mixing a pest control product with another pest control product or a fertilizer can result in biological effects that could include, but are not limited to: reduced pest efficacy or increased host crop injury. The user should contact E.I du Pont Canada Company at 1-800-667-3925 for information before mixing any pesticide or fertilizer that is not specifically recommended on this label. The user assumes the risk of losses that result from the use of tank mixes that do not appear on this label or that are not specifically recommended by E.I du Pont Canada Company.
