DIRECTIONS FOR USE (Prairie Provinces and Peace River Region of British Columbia)
ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide is a selective herbicide that can be applied as an early post-emergence treatment in Clearfield Canola (1), field peas, fenugreek (for seed uses only), Clearfield Lentils (1), Clearfield Canola (1) Quality Brassica juncea, Clearfield Sunflowers (1) (sunflower varieties with the Clearfield trait), soybeans, seedling and established alfalfa grown for seed, bird’s foot trefoil (for seed production) and fababeans. When ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide is applied early post-emergence, absorption may occur through both the roots and foliage. Susceptible weeds stop growing and eventually die.
Apply only when the potential for drift to areas of human habitation or areas of human activity (houses, cottages, schools and recreational areas) is minimal. Take into consideration wind speed, wind direction, temperature inversion, application equipment and sprayer settings.

Field Sprayer Application
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.
DO NOT apply by air.

Buffer Zones
The buffer zones specified in the table below are required between the point of direct application and the closest downwind edge of sensitive terrestrial habitats (such as grasslands, forested areas, shelter belts, woodlots, hedgerows, riparian areas and shrublands) and sensitive freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands).

Method of Application – Field sprayer
Crop – All crop
Buffer Zones (metres) Required for the Protection of:

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
Use 50-100 L/ha of water. Use a 50-mesh (or coarser) filter screen. Fill the spray tank with three-quarters of the required amount of clean water, start agitation and continue agitation throughout the entire mixing and spraying procedure. Add the required amount of ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide soluble bag(s) directly into the sprayer through the tank opening. Agitate for at least ten minutes to dissolve the herbicide. After the herbicide is dissolved, continue agitation and add the required amount of MERGE Adjuvant. If excess foaming occurs, a silicone anti-foaming agent may be added (e.g. HALT). Complete filling the tank to the desired level with water. If agitation is stopped for more than 5 minutes, re-suspend spray solution by full agitation prior to commencing spraying again. Between loads of ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide, check in-line and nozzle screens and rinse and clean if necessary. Upon completion of spraying ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide, thoroughly flush tank, boom, hoses and in-line and nozzle screens with clean water to avoid possible injury to other crops.


TANKMIXING INSTRUCTIONS
Use 50-100 L/ha of water. Use a 50-mesh (or coarser) filter screen. Fill the spray tank three-quarters full with water. Add the required amount of ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide soluble bag(s) directly into the sprayer through the tank opening. Agitate for at least ten minutes to dissolve the herbicide. After the herbicide is dissolved, use a separate calibrated measuring device to add the required amount of LONTREL 360, LONTREL Dry, EQUINOX EC Herbicide or POAST ULTRA Liquid Emulsifiable Herbicide while agitating the spray solution. Continue agitation while adding the required amount of MERGE Adjuvant. If excess foaming occurs, a silicone anti-foaming agent may be added (e.g. HALT). Complete filling the tank to the desired level with water. If agitation is stopped for more than 5 minutes, re-suspend spray solution by full agitation prior to commencing spraying again. Between loads of ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide, check in-line and nozzle screens and rinse and clean if necessary. Upon completion of spraying ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide, thoroughly flush tank, boom, hoses and in-line and nozzle screens with clean water to avoid possible injury to other crops.


BROADLEAF WEED and GRASS CONTROL
For Clearfield Canola (1) (canola varieties with the Clearfield trait)
(Prairie Provinces, Peace River Region and Southeast region including Thompson-Okanagan and Kootenay region of British Columbia)
Application should be made from the 2 - 6 true leaf stage of the canola crop and after the weeds have emerged. To control broadleaf weeds, apply ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide from the cotyledon to 4 leaf stage. To control grasses, apply ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide from the 1 - 4 true leaf stage up until early tillering. Initial transient crop yellowing may be observed after application but this is outgrown and should not affect yield.
See above for Directions for Use.


ROTATIONAL CROPS
There is the possibility of residual soil activity for ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide the year following application.
Research studies have shown that the following crops may be safely planted the year following ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide application:
Field corn
Field peas
Clearfield Canola (1) (canola varieties with the Clearfield trait)
Clearfield Lentils (1) (lentil varieties with the Clearfield trait)
Lentils
Spring wheat
Durum wheat
Tame oats
Canary seed
Spring barley
Chickpeas
Research studies have shown that flax, canola and sunflower may be safely planted 2 years following ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide application in all regions of Western Canada except the Peace River Region of Alberta and British Columbia. In the Peace River Region, observe a minimum 34 months recropping interval for non-Clearfield canola, flax and non-Clearfield sunflower, and perform a field bio-assay the year prior to planting to confirm normal growth of the crops. If the crops show signs of injury, delay planting by an additional year and perform an additional field bio-assay the following year.
WARNING: Certain environmental conditions may delay the breakdown of herbicide residues in soil. These conditions include but are not limited to drought, extremes in soil pH and excessive cold. Under these conditions, the level of phytotoxic herbicide residues present in the field the season following an application may result in an increased potential for injury to succeeding crops to occur. This potential for increased residues under these environmental conditions is not unique to any specific herbicide or herbicide group but is a property of those herbicides which persist in the soil and are dependent on soil microbial activity and other non-microbial processes (e.g. hydrolysis) to breakdown.
There are insufficient data for other follow crops. Conduct a field bioassay (a test strip grown to maturity) the year before growing any crop other than those listed above.


RESISTANCE-MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
For resistance management, ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide is a Group 2 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to ODYSSEY WDG 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 ODYSSEY WDG Herbicide or other Group 2 herbicides within a growing season (sequence) or among growing seasons 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. To delay resistance, the less resistance-prone partner should control the target weed(s) as effectively as the 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 for signs 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 seeds tested 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 recommendations for specific crops and weed biotypes.
For further information or to report suspected resistance, contact BASF at 1-877-371-2273.
