GENERAL INFORMATION
ERAGON is a water soluble granular herbicide for broadleaf weed control.
ERAGON is rapidly absorbed by root and foliar uptake; once absorbed it exhibits mobility in plants. ERAGON is a potent inhibitor of protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO). Cell membrane damage induced by inhibition of PPO leads to plant death. Susceptible weeds develop injury symptoms within hours of application under active growing conditions; plant death occurs within 3 to 5 days depending upon growing conditions.
ERAGON is recommended for pre-plant and pre-emergent applications in corn; for pre-plant applications in soybeans; and for pre-plant and pre-emergent applications in cereals for burndown of broadleaf weeds. ERAGON may also be used as a harvest aid in soybeans and dry beans.
ERAGON does not control grass weeds. An appropriate pre-emergent or post-emergent grass herbicide must be tank mixed with ERAGON for broad spectrum weed control.
ERAGON is a broad spectrum weed resistance management tool for activity on a range of broadleaf weeds.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
1. When applying ERAGON, always start with a clean sprayer. Thoroughly clean the sprayer by flushing the system with water containing detergent. Refer to previously applied product labels for specific cleaning instructions.
2. Fill clean spray tank half full with clean water. Start agitation system.
3. Using a calibrated measuring device, add the correct amount of ERAGON. Continue to agitate.
4. When tank mixing with glyphosate, add ERAGON followed by recommended amount of glyphosate. Then add the correct amount of PURSUIT Herbicide, if required.
5. If recommended, add the correct amount of MERGE Adjuvant to the tank last.
6. Continue agitation while filling the spray tank with the remaining amount of water.
7. Continue to agitate or run the by-pass system.
8. After any break in spraying operation, agitate thoroughly before spraying again. Check inside the tank to ensure that sprayer agitation is sufficient to remix the spray materials. Do not allow the mixture to sit over night.
9. If an oil film starts to build up in the tank, drain it and clean the tank with strong detergent solution.
10. Immediately after use, thoroughly clean the sprayer by flushing the system with clean water containing detergent.
Dispose of all rinsings in accordance with provincial regulations.
