EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide is a selective herbicide which is mixed (incorporated) in the soil for control of weeds listed on this label. EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide controls weeds by interfering with normal germination and seedling development. It does not control established weeds. All weed growth and crop stubble should be thoroughly worked into the soil before treatment.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Make only two applications per year.
Do not enter or allow worker entry into treated areas during the restricted entry interval (REI) of 24 hours.
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.
EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide is recommended for use on mineral soils only.
EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide should be used only for recommended purposes and at recommended rates. (DO NOT OVERDOSE).
Applied according to directions and under normal growing conditions, EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide will not harm the treated crop. However, during germination and early stages of growth, unusually cold and wet or hot and dry weather, insect, nematode, or plant disease attack, the use of certain soil-applied systemic insecticides, highly saline or alkaline soil conditions, improperly placed fertilizers or soil insecticides may create abnormal conditions that weaken crop seedlings. EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide used under these abnormal conditions could result in crop injury.
When applied according to directions and under conditions for normal crop growth, no harmful residues should remain beyond harvest.
Do not tank mix EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide with insecticides or fungicides unless compatibility has been tested prior to use.
Do not apply prior to pre-irrigation.
DO NOT APPLY BY AIR.
MIXING AND APPLICATION
Pour the recommended amount of EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide, and/or TREFLAN EC, RIVAL EC into the spray tank during the filling operations. Apply in 100 or more litres of water per hectare using a properly calibrated, low-pressure sprayer having good agitation. The soil should be well worked and dry enough to permit good soil mixing (incorporation). When applying the EPTAM 8-E Emulsifiable Herbicide /Metribuzin tank mix use 200 - 300 litres of water per hectare.
