FOR SALE FOR USE IN WESTERN CANADA ONLY
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
VEGETATION AND CROP PRECAUTIONS
Do not use in greenhouses.
Do not apply Lontrel SG Herbicide directly to, or otherwise permit it to come into contact with sunflowers, legumes (such as peas, beans, lentils or alfalfa), fruit or vegetable crops, flowers or other desirable broadleaved plants. Take precautions to prevent spray mists containing Lontrel SG Herbicide to drift onto the above plants. Residues of Lontrel SG Herbicide can remain in the soil following the year of use, thereby affecting growth of sensitive crops.
Avoid contamination of non-target land, water or irrigation ditches. Do not use Lontrel SG Herbicide in the following areas: standing or flowing water; the inner banks or bottoms of irrigation ditches; in areas where surface water can run off to adjacent croplands either planted or to be planted to sensitive crops.
Fields previously treated with Lontrel SG Herbicide can be seeded the following year to wheat, barley, oats, rye (not underseeded with legumes, clover or alfalfa), forage grasses, flax, canola, mustard or can be summerfallowed.
Do not seed to crops other than those listed above in the calendar year following treatment.
In some cases, tank mixing a pest control product with another pest control product or a fertilizer can result in biological effects that could include, but are not limited to: reduced pest efficacy or increased host crop injury. The user should contact Dow AgroSciences Canada Inc at 1-800-667-3852 or www.dowagro.ca for information before mixing any pesticide or fertilizer that is not specifically recommended on this label. The user assumes the risk of losses that result from the use of tank mixes that do not appear on this label or that are not specifically recommended by Dow AgroSciences Canada Inc.
Grazing and Harvesting for Feed
Crops or areas treated with this product may be grazed immediately following treatment.
Manure and Straw
Residues of the herbicide occurring in the straw may be harmful to susceptible plants; therefore, do not use straw or crop residue from treated crops for composting or mulching susceptible broadleaved crops. If the straw or crop residue is used for animal bedding or feed, return the manure to fields to be planted to clopyralid tolerant crops such as wheat, oats, rye, forage grasses, canola or flax. Do not grow susceptible crops such as peas, beans, lentils, potatoes, sunflowers or other sensitive crops on land which has been mulched with straw containing Lontrel SG Herbicide residues within the last 12 months.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE (Lontrel SG Herbicide alone)
READ THE ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE USE. FAILURE TO FOLLOW LABEL INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN ERRATIC WEED CONTROL OR CROP DAMAGE.
CANOLA (Western Canada Only)
For use on Polish and Argentine varieties. Lontrel SG Herbicide should be diluted with water and applied at the 2 to 6 leaf stage of the crop to effectively control the weed species in the following table. For specific directions for control of only Canada thistle, see the Control of Canada Thistle section.
NOTE: If the sprayer has been previously used to apply herbicides which contain 2,4-D or MCPA, it is imperative that the spray equipment be thoroughly cleaned before Lontrel SG Herbicide is mixed in the spray tank. Trace contamination of the spray solution with these herbicides will result in damage to the canola.
Control of Canada Thistle
For in crop control of top growth of Canada thistle, apply Lontrel SG Herbicide at the rate of 200g/ha. This will suppress top growth of Canada thistle for 6 to 8 weeks. Some regrowth may occur by the end of the season but this will not interfere with the harvesting of the crop.
For season long control of top growth of Canada thistle, apply Lontrel SG Herbicide at the rate of 267g/ha. This rate will generally provide season-long control of Canada thistle. Not all thistle roots will be killed and some regrowth may occur by the end of the growing season.
Applications of Lontrel SG Herbicide should be made when Canada thistle is in the rosette to pre-bud stage of growth. Best results are obtained when Canada thistle is actively growing and soil moisture is adequate for rapid growth. Under dry soil conditions and poor growing conditions, control of Canada thistle may be severely reduced. Applications of Lontrel SG Herbicide made after the Canada thistle flower has reached the purple bud stage will not provide satisfactory control.
