Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix

FOR SALE FOR USE ONLY IN THE PRAIRIE PROVINCES AND PEACE RIVER REGION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix provides control of a wide spectrum of broadleaved weeds including hard-tocontrol weeds such as cleavers, kochia, wild buckwheat, perennial sow thistle and Canada thistle, and suppression of hemp-nettle and common chickweed, in spring wheat, durum wheat and spring barley.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix is a selective postemergence herbicide for the control of broadleaved weeds in spring wheat, durum wheat, and spring barley (not underseeded to legumes). Prestige HerbicideTankMix provides control of hard-to-kill broadleaved weeds such as cleavers, kochia, wild buckwheat, Canada thistle and perennial sow thistle, and suppression of common chickweed and hemp-nettle. The components of Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix move within the plant to control exposed and underground plant tissues. It mimics naturally occurring plant hormones which control weeds by disrupting normal plant growth patterns. Symptoms of effect include epinasty (twisting of the stems) and swollen nodes.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
GENERAL USE PRECAUTIONS
READ THE ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE USE. FAILURE TO FOLLOW LABEL INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN ERRATIC WEED CONTROL OR CROP DAMAGE. DO NOT APPLY TO CROPS UNDERSEEDED WITH LEGUMES.
Do not use in greenhouses.
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 sprayer settings.
As this product is not registered for the control of pests in aquatic systems, DO NOT use to control aquatic pests. DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
Extreme growing conditions such as
- Drought or near freezing temperatures prior to, at and following time of application may reduce weed control and increase the risk of crop injury at all stages of growth.
- Wet foliage at the time of application may result in reduced weed control.
- Over-application may result in crop injury.
- Make only 1 application per year.
- Do not apply through any type of irrigation system.
- DO NOT APPLY BY AIR. GROUND EQUIPMENT ONLY.

Sprayer Clean-up
Sprayers used to apply Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix should not be used to apply other pesticides to sensitive crops without a thorough cleaning. Do not contaminate irrigation or drinking water, lakes, streams or ponds when cleaning the sprayer. Spray equipment should be cleaned after use by the following procedure:
1. Drain the sprayer tank.
2. Hose down the interior surfaces of the tank. Flush tank, hoses, boom and nozzles with clean water for 10 minutes. Fill the tank with water and recirculate for 15 minutes. Spray part of the mixture through the hoses, boom and nozzles and drain the tank.
3. Remove the nozzles and screens and clean them separately.
4. If the spray equipment will be used on other crops other than cereal crops, repeat 1 and 2 again and thoroughly wash the spray mixture from the outside of the spray tank and the boom.

SENSITIVE PLANTS
Do not apply Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix directly to, or otherwise permit it to come in direct contact with susceptible crops or desirable plants including alfalfa, edible beans, canola, flowers, fruit, and ornamentals, lentils, lettuce, peas, potatoes, radishes, soybeans, sugar beets, sunflowers, tomatoes or tobacco.

ROTATIONAL CROP RESTRICTIONS
Fields previously treated with Prestige herbicide tank-mix can be seeded to wheat, barley, oats and rye (not under-seeded to forage legumes, clover or alfalfa), canola, field peas, flax, mustard, or can be summer-fallowed. Seed only those crops listed above in the year following treatment. Do not seed to field peas for at least 10 months following treatment. Very dry soil conditions following application can result in a risk of injury to field peas grown in rotation. If severe drought conditions are experienced during the months of June to August inclusive in the year of application, delay seeding field peas an additional 12 months (total 22 months following application). Contact your local Dow AgroSciences Canada representative or retailer for more information before seeding field peas following drought conditions in the previous year.

Tank Mixtures
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.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix Alone
Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix will provide wide spectrum broadleaved weed control in spring wheat, durum wheat, and spring barley.

Grazing Restriction
- Do not permit any grazing within 7 days after application.
- Do not harvest forage or cut hay within 7 days after application.
- Withdraw meat animals from treated fields at least 3 days before slaughter.
- Do not harvest the treated crop within 60 days after application.

Restricted Entry Interval (REI)
- All crops – 12-hour REI

DO NOT APPLY TO CROPS UNDERSEEDED WITH LEGUMES.

NOTE: Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix activity is influenced by weather conditions. Optimum activity requires active crop and weed growth. The temperature range for optimum activity is 12 C to 24 C. Reduced activity will occur when temperatures are below 8 C or above 27 C. Frost before application (3 days) or shortly after (3 days) may reduce weed control and crop tolerance. Weed control may be reduced during stress conditions, e.g. drought, heat or cold stress, or if weeds have initiated flowering, or if heavy infestations exist.

Timing of Application
Apply postemergence when weeds are in the seedling stage (2-4 leaf) and when spring wheat, durum wheat, and spring barley are in the 3-leaf to just before the flag leaf emergence stage. Do not apply later than the flag-leaf emergence stage. A maximum of 1 application per year.

Mixing Instructions
1. Fill sprayer tank 1/2 full of water.
2. Start sprayer tank agitation.
3. Add the required number of jugs of Prestige A.
4. Add the required number of jugs of Prestige B.
5. Fill the sprayer tank with sufficient water to spray 100 L of spray mixture per hectare.
6. Follow sprayer directions and precautions as outlined above, especially when applying next to sensitive crops (e.g., canola and legumes).
7. Follow sprayer clean-up directions as listed.

Spray Application
Apply Prestige Herbicide Tank-Mix in sufficient spray volume to provide uniform coverage using properly calibrated ground equipment. A total spray volume of 100 L/ha using low pressure (200 to 275 kPa) application is recommended. Maintain sufficient agitation in the spray tank during mixing and spraying to ensure a uniform spray mixture.
