ONIONS (DRY BULB ONLY)


Application Directions

For best results, apply Goal 2XL Herbicide when weeds are small and growing conditions are favourable for vigorous growth. Apply 500 milliliters of Goal 2XL Herbicide in a minimum of 500 litres of water per hectare after there are two true leaves on the onions. Repeat applications as required to control late germinating weeds. Do not apply in excess of 2.0 litres per hectare in one year.

Weeds Controlled
Common Purslane, Redroot Pigweed, Cupped Nightshade (Potatoweed), Wild Buckwheat, Lamb's-quarters, Oak-leaved Goosefoot, and Maple-leaved Goosefoot.

Mixing Instructions

Maintain sufficient agitation during mixing and spraying to ensure a uniform spray mixture. Goal 2XL Herbicide should be applied only by ground equipment delivering a minimum of 500 litres of spray mixture per hectare using a pressure of 275 kPa. Do not add oils or surfactants to the spray mixture. Avoid drift onto susceptible crops.

Application Timing

To ensure effective weed control, apply Goal 2XL Herbicide when the weeds are in the 2 to 4 leaf stage and actively growing. The first application can be made when the onions have two fully developed true leaves. More than one application may be necessary to control late germinating weeds. Do not apply Goal 2XL Herbicide when the crop or weeds are under stress such as from excess or lack of moisture, extreme temperatures, or injury from previously applied herbicides. Do not apply within 56 days of harvest.

Crop Tolerance

Goal 2XL Herbicide can cause necrotic lesions, twisting, or pigtailing of the onion crop. This injury will be more severe if applications are made during periods of stress and/or if applications are made prior to the full development of two true leaves on the crop. Use only on dry bulb onions.

FOR PRIMOCANE SUPPRESSION ON RED RASPBERRIES (BRITISH COLUMBIA ONLY)


Application Directions
Apply Goal 2XL Herbicide at a rate of 1.0 2.0 litres per ha to primocanes which have emerged to 10 to 15 centimetres. The higher rate should be used if the majority of primocanes have reached the maximum height of 15 centimetres or when hot, dry conditions precede the application. Apply only once per season. The addition of 2.5 litres of Companion (or equivalent surfactant) per 1000 litres of spray solution is recommended.

†Dosages listed are for broadcast or overall application. For banded applications (one metre wide), the amount of Goal 2XL Herbicide required per hectare should be reduced according to the following formula:
Band Width
Row Width X Broadcast Rate = Amount Required per Hectare
†for a one metre banded application

Goal 2XL Herbicide should be applied to the primocane row in a minimum of 500 litres of water per hectare. Restrict the spray application to the lower 15 cm of the fruiting canes to minimize crop injury from spray contact. Goal 2XL Herbicide must be applied using a low pressure mounted spray system (200 to 400 kPa). Follow manufacturer’s recommendations for maintaining the minimum allowable boom height. The use of drift-reducing shrouds or spray shields is recommended. Spray equipment should be calibrated carefully before each use.

DO NOT apply Goal 2XL Herbicide to raspberry crops when wind speeds exceed 8 km/h.
Goal 2XL Herbicide provides temporary suppression of early season red raspberry primocane growth. Occasionally, after the use of Goal 2XL Herbicide, a spotting, crinkling or flecking may appear on the leaves of fruiting canes. These symptoms do not affect red raspberry plant health, performance or yield. Leaves of the fruiting canes which receive direct or indirect (drift) spray contact will be injured. Do not use Goal 2XL Herbicide on red raspberry plantings which are weak or under stress due to temperature, disease, fertilizer, insects, pesticides, drought or excessive moisture as primocane growth may be insufficient for the following year’s crop.

Do not apply Goal 2XL Herbicide within 50 days of harvest.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE – BLUEBERRIES, HIGHBUSH
For the post-emergence control of labelled weeds plus field pansy and wood sorrel.
Apply Goal 2XL Herbicide at the rate of 1 litre per broadcast hectare. This product is applied as a band on either side of the row of highbush blueberry. For band applications, reduce the rate according to the following formula:
Band Width
Row Width X Broadcast Rate = Product amount required
Timing: Apply as a directed band post-emergence to the crop when weeds are in the 2-4 leaf stage and actively growing.
Do not spray the crop directly. Apply in the equivalent of 500 litres of water per hectare. Apply only one ground application per year. Do not apply within 50 days of harvest.
Goal 2XL Herbicide should be thoroughly mixed with clean water at the recommended concentration and applied at 275 kPa in 500 litres of water per hectare. Heavy rainfall or heavy irrigation immediately following application to emergend weeds may reduce effectiveness.
Refer to the main Goal XL Emulsifiable Concentrate Herbicide label for additional details and instructions.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE – STRAWBERRIES

For the control of labelled weeds plus field pansy and wood sorrell. Apply Goal 2XL Herbicide at a rate of 1.0 litre per hectare in 500 L of spray solution/ha. Apply as a single spray pre-mulching to dormant plants. Apply only one ground application per year. The preharvest interval is 150 days.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE BROCCOLI/CABBAGE/CAULIFLOWER
For pre-transplant (preplant) application for the preemergence control of redroot pigweed and common purslane and the suppression of lady’s thumb and Eastern black nightshade.
Applications must be made after completion of soil preparation but prior to transplanting of broccoli, cabbage, or cauliflower plants. Transplanting should be completed with minimal soil disturbance. Treated soil surfaces should be left undisturbed after transplanting to obtain greatest benefit of Goal 2XL Herbicide on susceptible annual broadleaf weeds during the time period for which weed control is desired. However, timely cultivation after weed emergence will assist in weed control. Pre-transplant applications of Goal 2XL Herbicide in broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower may result in a temporary initial crop response (leaf cupping or crinkling). Crop response may be enhanced if crop leaves come in direct contact with treated soil. Crops rapidly outgrow this condition and develop normally. Severe crop
response may result from the used of transplants that are under stress due to temperature, disease, fertilizer, nematodes, insect, pesticides, or storage conditions. The use of young (less that 5 week old), extremely succulent transplants grown in containers less that 2.5 centimeters square, may increase the severity of crop injury. Hardening off, increasing the age of transplants or increase in the size of the rooting container will lessen the possibility and/or severity of crop injury.
Goal 2XL Herbicide is recommended for use at 1.13 to 2.0 litres of product per hectare applied pre-transplant (preplant). Use the lower rate for preemergence weed control on course texture soils with less that 1% organic matter. Use the highest rate for preemergence weed control on medium to fine texture soils or soils containing greater that 1% organic matter. Application to muck (high organic matter) soils may result in partial control or suppression of the weeds listed. Apply in a minimum of 200 litres of water per hectare using a conventional ground sprayer. Apply only one ground application per year. The preharvest interval is 60 days.
Research has shown that severe crop injury can occur if Goal 2XL Herbicide is applied to a field that has had an acetanilide herbicide such as Dual II Magnum® applied during the current growing season, therefore, it is not recommended.
Do not apply Goal 2XL Herbicide preemergence to direct seeded broccoli, cabbage or cauliflower.
Do not apply Goal 2XL Herbicide post-transplant or postemergence (over the top) to broccoli, cabbage or cauliflower.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
For resistance management, Goal 2XL Herbicide is a Group 14 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to Goal 2XL Herbicide and other Group 14 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 Goal 2XL Herbicide or other Group 14 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.
