Recommended rates and timing for IPCO Contender Herbicide application will provide control of the emerged grasses present. IPCO Contender Herbicide does not control sedges or broadleaf weeds.
Grass crops, including wheat, barley, rye, oats, and corn are highly sensitive to IPCO Contender Herbicide.
When not in use, keep container closed to prevent evaporation or loss through spillage.
Under certain environmental conditions, minor leaf spotting may occur on soybeans. New growth is unaffected and there is no adverse effect on crop yield.
MODE OF ACTION
IPCO Contender Herbicide is a systemic herbicide which is rapidly absorbed and readily translocated from the treated foliage to the root systems and growing points of the plant.
Treated plants show a reduction in growth and a loss of competitiveness. An early yellowing or browning of the younger plant tissues is followed by a progressive collapse of the remaining foliage. These symptoms will generally be observed in one to three weeks depending on the grass species treated and the environmental conditions.
GROUND APPLICATION: (For IPCO Contender Herbicide used alone or in tank mixes)
Use a properly calibrated sprayer that will provide thorough coverage of the weeds with the spray. Apply a minimum of 100 L/ha total spray volume. Use flat fan nozzles. DO NOT USE FLOOD JET NOZZLES.
Use 50 mesh screens or larger. A spray pressure of 210-275 kPa is recommended. Under heavy weed pressure, use increased volumes up to 400 L/ha total spray volume.
Avoid overlapping. Shut off spray booms while starting, turning, slowing or stopping to prevent over application.
Use spray preparation of IPCO Contender Herbicide within 24 hours or product degradation may occur. If spray preparation is left without agitation, thoroughly agitate before using.
Do not apply when environmental conditions such as wind speed, temperature, relative humidity, etc. are favourable for drift to occur.
Do not apply to terrain where there is a potential for surface run-off to enter aquatic systems.
NOTE: Extreme care must be taken to prevent drift to desirable plants or non-target agricultural land.
AERIAL APPLICATION: (Only for IPCO Contender Herbicide used alone)
Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment, which has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application rates and conditions of this label. Label rates, conditions and precautions are product specific. Read and understand the entire label before opening this
product. Apply only at the rate recommended for aerial application on this label.
Where no rate for aerial application appears for the specific use, this product cannot be applied by any type of aerial equipment. Ensure uniform application. To avoid streaked, uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices.
Apply only when meteorological conditions at the treatment site allow for complete and even crop coverage. Apply only under conditions of good practice specific to aerial application as outlined in the National Aerial Pesticide
Application Manual, developed by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Committee on Pest Management and Pesticides. Do not apply to any body of water. Avoid drifting of spray onto any body of water or other non-target areas. Specified buffer zones should be observed. Coarse sprays are less likely to drift, therefore, avoid combinations of pressure and nozzle type that will result in fine particles (mist). Do not apply during periods of dead calm or when wind velocity and direction pose a risk of spray drift. Do not spray when the wind is blowing towards a nearby sensitive crop, garden, terrestrial habitat (such as shelter-belt) or aquatic habitat.
Do not allow the pilot to mix chemicals to be loaded onto the aircraft. Loading of premixed chemicals with a closed system is permitted. It is desirable that the pilot have communication capabilities at each treatment site at the time of application. The field crew and the mixer/loaders must wear chemical resistant gloves, coveralls and goggles or face shield during mixing/loading, cleanup and repair. Follow the more stringent label precautions in cases where the operator precautions exceed the generic label recommendations on the existing ground boom label. All personnel on the job site must wash hands and face thoroughly before eating and drinking. Protective clothing, aircraft cockpit and vehicle cabs must be decontaminated regularly. Do not use human flaggers.
