DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
GENERAL INFORMATION:
NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is a selective herbicide that can be applied as an early pre-plant, pre-plant incorporated, pre-emergent or post-emergent treatment in various crops. The application method depends upon the crop, anticipated weed spectrum and the preference of the applicator. With early pre-plant and pre-emergent treatments, susceptible weeds emerge, are present as stunted plants and then die. When NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is applied post-emergence, absorption may occur through both the roots and foliage. Susceptible weeds stop growing and eventually die.

EASTERN CANADA DIRECTIONS:
Use NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE at 312 mL (75 g active) – 420 mL (100 g active) in 400 L of water per hectare. See appropriate rate tables for specific application rates for each crop.

NOTE: 
A NONIONIC SURFACTANT CONTAINING AT LEAST 80% ACTIVE INGREDIENT (e.g. AGRAL 90, AG-SURF) at the rate of 0.25% (v/v) MUST BE ADDED to the spray solution (2.5 L of surfactant per 1000 L of spray solution).

REGISTERED CROPS:
Adzuki Beans, Alfalfa Grown for Seed Production, Dry Common Beans (black, Dutch brown, kidney, white, yellow eye and cranberry beans only), Lima Beans (Ontario only), Processing Peas, Snap Beans, Snow Peas, Soybeans

MOISTURE REQUIREMENTS: 
As with most soil-applied herbicides, pre-emergent applications of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE require moisture for activation. Soil-applied NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE requires sufficient water within 7 days of application to moisten the soil to a depth of 5 cm for activation. If adequate moisture is not received within 7 to 10 days of application, perform a shallow inter-row cultivation 5-8 cm deep using a roller or S-tine cultivator to control escaped weeds until the field receives adequate moisture. For early pre-plant applications (soybeans only), more than 7-10 days may elapse before the receipt of adequate precipitation to activate the herbicide and reduce the risk of weed escapes. Growers preferring surface applications of herbicides may choose this type of application of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE.

PLANT BACK RESTRICTIONS AND ROTATIONAL CROPS: 
In cases of crop failure, replant only soybeans, kidney beans, cranberry beans, Dutch brown beans, black beans, yellow eye beans, white beans, lima beans, adzuki beans and processing peas in the year of application. Winter wheat may also be re-planted in cases of crop failure or as a rotational crop 100 days following a NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE application. Soil preparation for re-planting should be no deeper than 10 cm.  
Field corn, soybeans, winter wheat, spring wheat, spring barley, kidney beans, cranberry beans, Dutch brown beans, black beans, yellow eye beans, white beans, lima beans, adzuki beans and processing peas may be planted the season following a NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE application. Conduct a field bioassay (a test strip grown to maturity) the year BEFORE growing any other crop.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: 
CROP: SOYBEANS
Apply NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE as an early pre-plant, pre-plant incorporated, pre-emergent or postemergent treatment in soybeans. For fields that contain weeds other than those listed in the “Weed Control in Soybeans: NUIMAGE HERBICIDE Alone” table, tank mix for broad-spectrum weed control (see “Herbicide Tank Mix Options – Soybeans”). The choice of product for tank mixing will depend on the specific weed(s) to be controlled. Consult the labels of the tank mix products to determine which product will provide control of the specific weeds present in the field.
CROP: EDIBLE BEANS (including kidney beans, cranberry beans, Dutch brown beans, black beans, lima beans (Ontario only), yellow eye beans, white beans and adzuki beans) 
Apply NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE as a pre-emergent treatment in kidney beans, cranberry beans, Dutch brown beans, black beans, yellow eye beans, white beans, adzuki beans and lima beans (Ontario only), and as a pre-plant incorporated treatment in white beans, kidney beans, cranberry beans and adzuki beans.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: 
1. Ensure the spray tank is clean before use. Follow the clean-out recommendations stated on the label of the product that was previously used.
2. Fill the spray tank one-half full to three-quarters full of water and start agitation.
3. Using a calibrated measuring device, add the required amount of tank mix partner (refer to the tank mixture section of each crop for tank mixtures).
4. Mix thoroughly.
5. Using a separate calibrated measuring device, add the required amount of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE to the tank while agitating the spray solution.
6. While the solution remains agitating, add the required amount of non-ionic surfactant if required.
7. If required, add the required amount of liquid fertilizer (28-0-0, 10-34-0 or 32-0-0) to the spray solution.
8. Continue agitation while filling the remainder of the spray tank with water.
9. Clean the spray tank after use.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: 
NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is toxic to aquatic organisms. DO NOT apply this product directly to aquatic habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs, ditches, and wetlands), estuaries, or marine habitats. DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.

RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS: 
1. DO NOT APPLY NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE BY AIR. APPLY WITH GROUND EQUIPMENT ONLY.
2. DO NOT over apply NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE. Over application may result in injury particularly if the crop is under stress.
3. Crop Pre-harvest Interval
4. CAUTION: Do not graze treated crops or cut for hay, sufficient data are not available to support such use.
5. DO NOT let spray drift contaminate crops in adjacent fields.
6. ONLY ONE (1) application of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE may be made during the season.
7. DO NOT apply NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE as a pre-plant incorporated application in all crops more than one year in sequence. Allow at least 24 months between pre-plant incorporated applications.
8. Emerged weeds in pre-emergent applications which reach the 2 - 3 true leaf stage might be considered as escapes. Shallow cultivation or application of a post-emergent herbicide is recommended. DO NOT cultivate deeply.
9. DO NOT apply NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE when crop is under stress conditions because crop injury may result.
10. Post-emergent application of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE to soybeans may cause stunting. This condition is the result of stem inter-node shortening and does not cause yield reductions if NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE has been used at label rates and following label recommendations.
11. NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE may cause stunting or delayed maturity in white beans and kidney beans. Stunting is the result of stem inter-node shortening and should not cause yield reductions if NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE has been used at label rates and following label recommendations.
12. Over-spray or drift to important wildlife habitats such as shelterbelts, water-bodies, wetlands, woodlots, vegetated ditch-banks, hedgerows and other cover on the edge of fields should be avoided. Leave a 15-meter buffer zone between the last spray swath and the edge of any of these habitats.

WESTERN CANADA DIRECTIONS:

DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON FIELD PEAS: 
NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is a selective herbicide that can be applied as an early postemergence treatment in field peas. When NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is applied early postemergence, absorption may occur through both the roots and foliage. Susceptible weeds stop growing and eventually die. SOIL ZONES: Black and grey wooded soils CROPS: Field peas up until the sixth (6th) trifoliate leaf stage

ROTATIONAL CROPS: 
There is the possibility of residual soil activity from NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE the year following application. Research studies have shown the following crops can be safely grown in black and grey wooded soil zones the year following a NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE application: Spring barley, spring wheat, lentils, alfalfa, and field peas Conduct a field bioassay (a test strip grown to maturity) the year BEFORE growing any crop other than those listed above.

RATES: 
Apply 50 grams active (a.e.) in 100 to 400 litres of water per hectare. Equivalent to 210 mL of product per hectare.  
NOTE:
A NONIONIC SURFACTANT CONTAINING AT LEAST 80% ACTIVE INGREDIENT (AGRAL 90, AG-SURF) at the rate of 0.25% (v/v) MUST BE ADDED to the spray solution (e.g., 2.5 L of surfactant per 1000 L of spray solution).

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: 
Fill the spray tank one-half to three-quarters full with water. Using a calibrated measuring device, add the required amount of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE while agitating the spray solution. While the solution remains agitating, add the required amount of non-ionic surfactant. Fill the remainder of the tank with water.

WARNINGS:
An interval of 60 days must follow the NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE application before field peas are harvested. Field peas treated with NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE may be fed to livestock 30 days after application. DO NOT over-apply NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE. Over application may result in injury particularly if the crop is under stress. DO NOT let spray drift contaminate crops other than those being sprayed. ONLY ONE (1) application of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE may be made during the season. DO NOT tank-mix NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE. In cases of crop failure, only field peas may be re-planted in the year of application. DO NOT APPLY BY AERIAL APPLICATION - GROUND APPLICATION ONLY. Over-spray or drift to important wildlife habitats such as shelterbelts, water bodies, wetlands and woodlots, vegetated ditch banks, hedgerows & other cover on the edge of the field should be avoided. Leave a 15-meter buffer zone between the last spray swath and the edge of any of these habitats.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON NEWLY SEEDED PURE STAND ALFALFA FOR FORAGE OR SEED PRODUCTION: 
NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is a selective herbicide that can be applied as an early postemergence treatment in newly seeded pure stand alfalfa in the year of establishment. NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE may be applied when the crop has developed at least one (1) fully expanded trifoliate leaf and up to and including the 4 leaf stage of susceptible weeds. Do not spray before all weeds have emerged. When NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is applied early postemergence, absorption may occur through both the roots and foliage. Susceptible weeds stop growing and eventually die.

CROPS: 
NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE may be used on pure stand alfalfa in the year of establishment in the black, grey wooded and irrigated brown soil zones.

USE: 
NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is intended for use on pure stand alfalfa in the year of establishment, on stands that will remain for 3 or more years.

ROTATIONAL CROPS: 
In the event of crop failure, only field peas may be replanted during the same season as the NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE application. Do not apply 2 applications of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE within the same year. If necessary, spring wheat, lentils, field peas or alfalfa may be planted the season following a NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE application in the black, grey wooded and irrigated brown soil zones. Barley may also be planted in the black and grey wooded soil zones the season following application. Conduct a field bioassay (a test strip grown to maturity) BEFORE growing any other crop. 

RATES: 
Apply 50 grams active (a.e.) in 100 to 400 litres of water per hectare. Equivalent to 210 mL of product per hectare.
NOTE:
For early post-emergence applications a NONIONIC SURFACTANT CONTAINING AT LEAST 80% ACTIVE INGREDIENT (AGRAL 90, AG-SURF) at the rate of 0.25% (v/v) MUST BE ADDED to the spray solution (e.g., 2.5 L of surfactant per 1000 L of spray solution).  

BROADLEAF WEED AND GRASS CONTROL: 
EARLY POST-EMERGENCE APPLICATIONS: 
NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE, by early post-emergence application (up to and including the 4 leaf stage of susceptible weeds) will control: 
Broadleaf weeds: Redroot pigweed, Wild mustard, Stinkweed, Volunteer canola and Green smartweed In addition, NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE provides partial control of and reduces competition from: Common groundsel Green foxtail Shepherd’s purse

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: 
Fill the spray tank one-half to three-quarters full with water. Using a calibrated measuring device, add the required amount of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE while agitating the spray solution. While the solution remains agitating, add the required amount of non-ionic surfactant. Fill the remainder of the tank with water.

WARNINGS: 
Apply only in the year of establishment and only after the crop has one fully developed trifoliate leaf.
DO NOT over-apply NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE. Over application may result in injury particularly if the crop is under stress. DO NOT let spray drift contaminate crops other than those being sprayed. ONLY ONE (1) application of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE may be made during the life of the alfalfa stand. DO NOT tank-mix NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE. In cases of crop failure, only field peas may be re-planted in the year of application. DO NOT graze or harvest for forage until 14 days after treatment. Mature seed from treated plants should not be used for human consumption. Over-spray or drift to important wildlife habitats such as shelterbelts, water bodies, wetlands, woodlots, vegetated ditch banks, hedgerows and other cover should be avoided. Leave a 15meter buffer zone between the last spray swath and the edge of any of these habitats. DO NOT APPLY BY AERIAL APPLICATION - GROUND EQUIPMENT ONLY. 

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS: 
For resistance management, NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE is a Group 2 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE and other Group 2 herbicides. The resistant biotypes may dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly in the same field. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action, but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
To delay herbicide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of NU-IMAGE HERBICIDE or other Group 2 herbicides with different herbicide groups that control the same weeds in a field.
Use tank mixtures with herbicides from a different group when such use is permitted.
Herbicide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, historical information related to herbicide use and crop rotation, and considers tillage (or other mechanical), cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
Monitor treated weed populations for resistance development.
Prevent movement of resistant weed seeds to other fields by cleaning harvesting and tillage equipment and planting clean seed.
Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or integrated weed-management recommendations for specific crops and weed biotypes.
