Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go
FOR POSTEMERGENCE USE ON WHEAT (SPRING AND DURUM), BARLEY AND ESTABLISHED CREEPING RED FESCUE, TIMOTHY (SEED OR FORAGE), ORCHARD GRASS, CRESTED AND INTERMEDIATE WHEAT GRASS (SEED OR FORAGE) IN THE PRAIRIE PROVINCES AND THE PEACE RIVER REGION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (SOIL PH 7.9 OR LOWER
Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go is recommended for post-emergence use for control or suppression of certain broadleaf weeds in wheat (spring and durum), barley and established creeping red fescue (seed or forage), orchard grass and crested and intermediate wheat grass in the Prairie Provinces and the Peace River Region of British Columbia (soil pH of 7.9 or lower).
Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go bags are to be mixed in water with a recommended surfactant and applied as a uniform broadcast spray. Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go is noncorrosive, non-flammable, non-volatile and does not freeze. Wheat, barley or creeping red fescue may be grazed by or fed to livestock anytime after treatment.
Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go is a 60% active ingredient herbicide formulated as a dry flowable dispersible granule contained in a water soluble film. Use gloves and goggles when handling the water soluble bags. Reseal unused Toss-N-Go bags into original bag when not in use. Avoid exposure of Toss-N-Go bags to excess moisture or physical damage during storage and prior to mixing in spray tank.
Prior to using Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go, careful consideration should be given to crop rotation plans. Crops other than those listed in the "Minimum Crop Rotation Guidelines" section can be very sensitive to low concentrations of Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go in the soil. Refer to the "Minimum Crop Rotation Guidelines" section of this label to plan your Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go use and crop rotations.
Rainfall, soil temperature and soil pH are important factors affecting Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go breakdown in the soil. Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go breakdown is more rapid under conditions of moist soil, warm soil temperatures and low soil pH. The breakdown process is slower under conditions of dry soil, cool soil temperatures and high soil pH.
Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go must be applied with a recommended surfactant early postemergence to the main flush of actively growing broadleaf weeds. Warm, moist growing conditions promote active weed growth and enhance the activity of Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go by allowing maximum foliar uptake and contact activity. If cold, dry conditions prevail, delay treatment until active weed growth resumes. Brush and weeds hardened off by cold weather or drought stress may not be adequately controlled or suppressed and regrowth may occur. Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go may only be applied with ground spray equipment. For best results, ensure good spray coverage of target species.
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 E.I du Pont Canada Company at 1-800-667-3925 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 E.I du Pont Canada Company.
Metsulfuron Methyl EUP Toss-N-Go is an ALS inhibitor herbicide and thus, rapidly inhibits the growth of susceptible species. However, typical symptoms (discolouration) of dying weeds may not be noticeable for 1 to 3 weeks after application depending upon growing conditions and weed susceptibility. Degree of control and duration of effect depend on the rate used, sensitivity, and size of target species, as well as growing conditions, soil moisture, soil temperature and soil pH and spray coverage.
