STORAGE
1. Store in original, tightly-closed container.
2. Do not ship or store near food, feed, seed or fertilizers.
3. Store in cool, dry, locked, well-ventilated area without floor drain.
4. Herbicides should be shipped or stored separate from other pesticides to avoid crosscontamination.
5. Protect from freezing.

DISPOSAL
Recyclable Containers
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.

GENERAL INFORMATION
LADDOK Herbicide is a liquid suspension herbicide for control of annual broadleaf weeds and yellow nutsedge in corn (grain, silage, sweet and seed). Do not use in any crop except corn. At the rates recommended on this label, grasses will not be controlled. LADDOK Herbicide is intended for use either:
a) in fields where annual grasses are not a problem, or
b) in fields where grass control is obtained with other herbicides such as EPTC, cyanazine, or metolachlor.
When the perennial weeds Canada thistle or field bindweed are present, the use of BASAGRAN liquid herbicide is recommended.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Apply atrazine at a maximum of 1.5 kg ai/ha per year either as a pre- or post-emergent application before corn reaches 30 cm in height. Treatments can be made once or twice per year but the maximum amount of atrazine used in a year cannot exceed 1.5 kg ai/ha.

TIMING OF APPLICATION
Apply early post-emergence when weeds are small and actively growing and before weeds reach the maximum size listed in the Application Rate Table. Such applications generally correspond to corn growth stages of one to five leaves.
Under good growing conditions the most effective time for spraying will usually be 18 to 28 days after planting.
A cultivation may be necessary if additional weeds emerge after the application of LADDOK Herbicide.
Corn is tolerant to LADDOK Herbicide at all stages of growth, but very slight leaf speckling may occur. Corn plants generally outgrow this condition within 10 days.

APPLICATION RATE
Apply 3 to 4 litres per hectare in 200 to 400 litres of water per hectare. Use the rate appropriate for the weed size as shown in the Application Rate Table. Where DUAL MAGNUM Herbicide/DUAL II MAGNUM Herbicide has been applied at the recommended rate as a pre-emergent grass herbicide, the recommended 3 and 4 litre LADDOK Herbicide per hectare rate specified in the Application Rate Table may be reduced to 2 and 2.5 litres per hectare respectively, for the control of black nightshade, redroot pigweed, lamb's-quarters, common ragweed, corn spurry, lady's-thumb, wild mustard and velvetleaf.

ADDITIVES
BASF ASSIST oil concentrate at 1.0 litre per 100 litres of spray solution should be added to the spray tank for all applications of LADDOK Herbicide.

MIXTURES
Do not mix or apply LADDOK Herbicide with any other pesticide or additive except as specifically registered.

MIXING
l. Fill spray tank half full with water. Start agitation system.
2. Shake container of LADDOK Herbicide, until well mixed, then measure proper quantity, and gradually pour into the spray tank.
3. Agitate for 2 or 3 minutes before adding the remainder of the water.
4. When the LADDOK Herbicide is thoroughly mixed, add the ASSIST oil concentrate. Agitate further and then spray.
5. After any break in the spraying operation, agitate thoroughly. To prevent settling out of the atrazine, avoid allowing any spray to sit overnight.
6. Before refilling spray tank, empty as completely as possible to prevent a build-up of oil in the tank. If any spray mixture remains in the tank, keep the agitation system in operation to avoid a separation of the oil from the water.
7. If an oil film starts to build up in the tank, drain and clean it with a strong detergent solution or solvent.
8. Immediately after use, thoroughly clean the sprayer by flushing the system with water containing a detergent or solvent recommended for this purpose.

SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT FOR GROUND APPLICATIONS
General Information
Use good pesticide practices and apply only when the potential for drift to areas of human habitation or areas of human activity such as houses, cottages, schools and parks is minimal. Take into consideration wind speed, wind direction, temperature, application equipment and sprayer settings used for application.
For the protection of non-target terrestrial or aquatic habitats, over-spray or drift to any body of water or other environmentally sensitive habitat must be avoided. The interaction of equipment and weather-related factors determines the potential for spray drift. The applicator is responsible for considering all these factors when making application decisions.
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.
DO NOT apply by air.
