LEXONE DF Herbicide Dispersible Granules should be used only in accordance with recommendations on this label, or in separate published E.I du Pont Canada Company recommendations available through local dealers.
LEXONE DF Herbicide Dispersible Granules is a dry flowable granule. It is recommended for use as a spray for selective control of certain grasses and broadleaf weeds in soybeans, potatoes, tomatoes, fababeans, peas (Western Canada), asparagus, fruit trees and certain weeds in spring wheat (Western Canada only), spring barley (Western Canada only), and lentils (Western Canada only). It is non-corrosive to equipment, non-flammable and non-volatile.

Soil should be well prepared and as free as possible from trash and clods; plant seed to specific depth on flat or raised seedbeds or crop injury may result. Moisture is necessary to activate this herbicide; best results are obtained if treatment is made to moist soil and moisture is supplied by rainfall or irrigation (0.5-1.0 cm) within two weeks after application. Do not apply a heavy irrigation immediately after application. If moisture is insufficient to activate the chemical or if the soil becomes crusted before crop emerges (7 to 10 days), a shallow rotary hoeing should be made before weeds become established; otherwise, avoid cultivating or disturbing the sprayed area. Do not cover treated bank with soil while cultivating between rows. The degree of control and duration of effect will vary with the amount applied, soil texture, rainfall and other conditions.
NOTE: If unusually heavy rains follow application, severe crop injury may result. 
PREPLANT INCORPORATED (PPI) HERBICIDES WITH LEXONE DF Herbicide Dispersible Granules: Herbicides recommended on this label for PPI application may not be used on peat, muck or other organic soils or on wet soils (mineral or organic) or on soils in poor working condition or on soils subject to prolonged periods of flooding. Apply with a tractor-mounted, fixed-boom sprayer properly calibrated to a constant speed and rate of delivery. Do not over-apply; misapplication or improper soil incorporation can result in erratic weed control or crop injury. Seedling disease, cold weather, deep planting (more than 5 cm), excessive moisture, high soil pH (above 7.5), high salt concentration, or drought may weaken seedlings and increase possibility of crop injury. Under these conditions delayed crop development or reduced yields may occur. Read and carefully follow incorporation instructions on all recommended herbicide labels.
USE RATES AND SOIL LIMITATIONS: All dosages are expressed as broadcast rates. For band treatments, use proportionally less; for example for 30 cm band on 90 cm row, use 1/3 of the broadcast rate. Where a range of dosage rates is given, use the lower rate on lighter soils (low in clay or organic matter) and the higher rates on heavier soils. Do not use on sand as crop injury may result. Do not use on sandy or coarse textured soils with less than 2% organic matter.
EQUIPMENT: Use a fixed-boom power spray properly calibrated to ensure a constant rate of application. Opening in screens should be equal to or larger than 50 mesh. Agitate by mechanical or hydraulic means in the spray tank. If by-pass or return line is used, it should terminate at bottom of tank to minimize foaming.
