Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid
Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid is a systemic, postemergence herbicide for the selective control of wild oats, volunteer tame oats, green foxtail, yellow foxtail, barnyard grass and Persian Darnel in spring wheat, durum wheat, winter wheat, barley, triticale, spring rye, winter rye, and selected forage grasses (except Timothy) grown for seed only.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
RATE OF USE
Apply Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid at 0.5 L/ha in 50-100 L/ha of water.
Note: Always add NUP 09025 Adjuvant to the spray solution at a rate of 0.5 L per 100 L of water (0.5% v/v). The incorrect NUP 09025 Adjuvant rate can result in unacceptable weed control or crop injury. See MIXING and SPRAYING INSTRUCTION sections.
Only one application per season is permitted. Apply only when the potential for drift to areas of human habitation or areas of human activity such as houses, cottages, schools and recreational areas is minimal. Take into consideration wind speed, wind direction, temperature inversions, application equipment and sprayer settings.
Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid can be used on the following crops:
CEREAL CROPS: (Spring Wheat, Durum Wheat, Winter Wheat, Barley, Triticale, Spring Rye and Winter Rye) Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid can be used in all varieties of spring wheat (including Canada Western red spring, amber durum, soft white spring, extra strong and Canada prairie spring), red winter wheat, all 2 or 6 row varieties of barley (malting and feed varieties), all varieties of triticale, spring rye and winter rye.
Note: Tillered cereal crops may incur injury if applications are made within 48 hours of freezing temperatures. Non-tillering cereal crops which are exposed to temperatures of 4 C or less up to 48 hours before or after application may incur injury. Tank mixing Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid with a broadleaf weed herbicide under adverse conditions may increase severity of crop injury. Crops under stress from foliar diseases or low fertility are more susceptible to injury from Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid.
Do not use in tame oat crops. Avoid drift onto tame oat and corn crops. Do not replant treated areas to tame oats or corn for at least 4 weeks after application.
In Eastern Canada Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid is to be used only for the control of wild oats in spring wheat, winter wheat, durum wheat, barley and all varieties of triticale and spring and winter rye.
MINIMUM INTERVAL TO HARVEST
Immature cereal crops may be grazed or cut for hay 16 days after treatment. Grain may be harvested 60 days after treatment. Mature straw may be fed to livestock. Do not feed or graze underseeded forage crops in the year of treatment, sufficient data are not available to support this use.
CEREAL CROPS UNDERSEEDED TO FORAGE LEGUMES: alfalfa, birdsfoot trefoil, sainfoin and clovers. Note: Do not tankmix Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid with any broadleaf herbicides when applying to cereal crops underseeded to forage legumes, as the forages may be injured or killed.
Apply Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid to actively growing weeds for best results. Weeds emerging after application of Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid will not be controlled.
Weed Control Notes
Perennial grasses such as quack grass will not be controlled.
Susceptible grassy weeds treated with Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid cease growth soon after application, however, complete die-back of the weeds could take up to 2 weeks.
When grass weeds are stressed due to drought, heat, lack of fertility, flooding or prolonged cool temperatures, control can be reduced or delayed since the grasses are not actively growing. Grass escapes or re-tillering may occur when application is made under prolonged stress conditions. Optimum weed control will be obtained if application of Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid is delayed until the stress conditions have ended and weeds are once again actively growing.
The herbicidal activity of Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid can be negatively affected if water containing high concentrations (>400 ppm) of bicarbonate ions is used as a diluent. Water from deep wells is more likely to contain high concentrations of bicarbonate ions. Ammonium sulfate at 9 to 18 kg per 1000 litres of spray solution, can be used to counteract this antagonistic effect. Use only granular or liquid ammonium sulfate formulations which do not contain additional wetters or surfactants.
Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid is not affected by rain falling one hour or more after application.
GROUND SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Apply in a spray volume of 50-100 L/ha at a pressure of 275 kPa to ensure proper dispersion, spraying characteristics and performance of Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid.
2. Flat fan nozzles of 80 or 110 are recommended for optimum coverage. Do not use floodjet nozzles or controlled droplet application equipment. Nozzles may be angled forward 45 to enhance penetration of the crop and provide better coverage. Ensure that all in-line strainer and nozzle screens in the sprayer are 50 mesh or coarser. Screens of 80 mesh or finer should not be used.
3. Always ensure that agitation is continued until spraying is completed, even if stopped for brief periods of time. If the agitation is stopped for more than 5 minutes, re-suspend the spray solution by running on full agitation prior to spraying. Do not begin spraying until fully resuspended. Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid must be sprayed within the same day of mixing.
4. When spraying is completed and prior to using other products, ensure the sprayer tank is thoroughly rinsed with clean water to remove any remaining Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid residues. Using a pressure washer and the addition of a detergent or AGRAL 90 to the rinse water will enhance removal of residues. 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.
Generic Aerial Application Label Instructions - Directions for Use
Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment which has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application rates and conditions of this label. Label rates, conditions and precautions are product specific. Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. Apply only at the rate recommended for aerial application on this label. Where no rate for aerial application appears for the specific use, this product cannot be applied by any type of aerial equipment. Ensure uniform application. To avoid streaked, uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices.
Apply only when meteorological conditions at the treatment site allow for complete and even crop coverage. Apply only under conditions of good practice specific to aerial application as outlined in the National Aerial Pesticide Application Manual, developed by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Committee on Pest Management and Pesticides. Do not apply to any body of water. Avoid drifting of spray onto any body of water or other non-target areas. Specified buffer zones should be observed. DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 16 km/h at flying height at the site of application. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) medium classification. To reduce drift caused by turbulent wingtip vortices, the nozzle distribution along the spray boom length MUST NOT exceed 65% of the wing or rotorspan.
Do not allow the pilot to mix chemicals to be loaded onto the aircraft. Loading of premixed chemicals with a closed system is permitted. It is desirable that the pilot have communication capabilities at each treatment site at the time of application. The field crew and the mixer/loaders must wear chemical resistant gloves, coveralls and goggles or face shield during mixing/loading, cleanup and repair. Follow the more stringent label precautions in cases where the operator precautions exceed the generic label recommendations on the existing ground boom label. All personnel on the job site must wash hands and face thoroughly before eating and drinking. Protective clothing, aircraft cockpit and vehicle cabs must be decontaminated regularly.
AERIAL SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Apply in a spray volume of 30 to 45 L/ha at a pressure of 140-275 kPa to ensure proper dispersion, spraying characteristics and performance of Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid.
2. Flat fan nozzles of 80o or 110o are recommended for optimum coverage. Do not use floodjet nozzles or controlled droplet application equipment. Ensure that all in-line strainer and nozzle screens in the sprayer are 50 mesh or coarser. Screens of 80 mesh size or finer should not be used.
3. Always ensure that agitation is continued until spraying is completed, even if stopped for brief periods of time. If the agitation is stopped for more than 5 minutes, re-suspend the spray solution by running on full agitation prior to spraying. Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid must be sprayed within the same day of mixing.
4. Do not apply Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid if the wind is more than 13 km/h. This will avoid spray drift onto non-target areas.
5. Do not spray Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid if tame oats are present in adjacent, downwind fields.
6. When spraying is completed and prior to using other products, ensure the sprayer tank is thoroughly rinsed with clean water to remove any remaining Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid residues. Using a pressure washer and the addition of a detergent or AGRAL 90 to the rinse water will enhance removal of residues.
7. DO NOT APPLY within 50 m of non-crop areas. This includes fish-bearing waters, wetlands (potholes, sloughs etc.) and wildlife habitat (hedgerows, rights of way, etc.).
For resistance management, Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid is a Group 1 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid and other Group 1 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 resistancemanagement strategies should be followed. To delay herbicide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of Nufarm Tralkoxydim Liquid or other Group 1 herbicides within a growing season (sequence) or among growing seasons with different herbicide groupsthat control the same weeds in a field.
Use tank mixtures with herbicides from a different group when such use is permitted. To delay resistance, the less resistance prone partnershould control the target weed(s) as effectively asthe more resistance prone partner.
Herbicide use should be based on an integrated weed management program that includes scouting, historical information related to herbicide use and crop rotation, and considers tillage (or other mechanical control methods), cultural (for example, higher crop seeding rates; precision fertilizer application method and timing to favour the crop and not the weeds), biological (weed competitive crops or varieties) and other management practices.
Monitor weed populations after herbicide application forsigns of resistance development (for example, only one weed species on the herbicide label not controlled). If resistance is suspected, prevent weed seed production in the affected area if possible by an alternative herbicide from a different group.
Prevent movement of resistant weed seeds to other fields by cleaning harvesting and tillage equipment when moving between fields, and planting clean seed.
Have suspected resistant weed seedstested by a qualified laboratory to confirm resistance and identify alternative herbicide options.
Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or integrated weed-management recommendationsforspecific crops and weed biotypes.
