STORAGE
Keep from freezing. DO NOT store below 0 C. If the product is exposed to temperatures below 0 C during shipment or storage, make sure the product has thawed completely, and shake the container vigorously.

DISPOSAL
Do not reuse this container for any purpose. This is a recyclable container, and is to be disposed of at a container collection site. Contact your local distributor/dealer or municipality for the location of the nearest collection site. Before taking the container to the collection site:
1. Triple- or pressure-rinse the empty container. Add the rinsings to the spray mixture in the tank.
2. Make the empty, rinsed container unsuitable for further use. If there is no container collection site in your area, dispose of the container in accordance with provincial requirements.
For information on the disposal of unused, unwanted product, contact the manufacturer or the provincial regulatory agency.
Contact the manufacturer and the provincial regulatory agency in case of a spill, and for clean-up of spills.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
CROP: SOYBEANS
GENERAL
PURSUIT is a selective herbicide that can be applied as a post-emergence treatment in soybeans. Absorption may occur through both the roots and foliage of susceptible weeds which stop growing and eventually die.
To reduce runoff from treated areas into aquatic habitats, avoid application to areas with a moderate to steep slope, compacted soil or clay.
Avoid application when heavy rain is forecast.
Contamination of aquatic areas as a result of runoff may be reduced by including a vegetative strip between the treated area and the edge of the water body.
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.

ROTATIONAL CROPS
Only soybeans, kidney beans, cranberry, Dutch brown, black, yellow eye, white beans, adzuki beans, field corn, imazethapyr tolerant corn, imazethapyr tolerant canola, processing peas, spring barley, spring wheat and winter wheat may be planted the season following a PURSUIT herbicide application. Winter wheat may be grown the same season as a PURSUIT herbicide application to soybeans but not earlier than 100 days after the application. Conduct a field bioassay (a test strip grown to maturity) the year BEFORE growing any other crop.
RATE: Apply 312 - 420 mL of product (75 - 100 g active) in 100 to 400 litres of water per hectare.

EARLY POST-EMERGENCE APPLICATION Early post-emergence applications of PURSUIT herbicide may be applied after the crop has emerged and before the weeds reach the 2 true leaf stage. Addition of a non-ionic surfactant (AGRAL 90 or AGSURF) plus liquid fertilizer is essential for postemergence application, improving uptake of the product by weeds resulting in improved herbicidal activity. Application to a crop under stress should be avoided. Stunting of the crop may result following post-emergence application. This condition is the result of stem internode shortening but will not result in yield reduction.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
Fill the tank one-half to three-quarters full with water and start agitation. Add the required amount of 28-0-0, 10-34-0, or 32-0-0 to the spray solution. Using a calibrated measuring device, add the required amount of PURSUIT herbicide while the solution remains agitating. Using a separate calibrated measuring device, add the required amount of BASAGRAN or BASAGRAN FORTE herbicide and make sure it is thoroughly mixed. Continue agitation while adding the required amount of non-ionic surfactant (for PURSUIT herbicide + BASAGRAN herbicide ONLY). Continue agitation while filling the remainder of the tank with water.

LATE POST-EMERGENCE APPLICATION PURSUIT herbicide may be applied late post-emergence for control of certain weed species up to the growth stages indicated below. To minimize weed competition with the crop, application should be made as early as possible after weed emergence. Avoid applications when weeds and/or crop are under growth stress.
Addition of a non-ionic surfactant and liquid fertilizer is critical for post-emergence application, see instructions for tankmixing. Stunting of the crop may result following post-emergence application. This condition is the result of stem internode shortening but will not result in yield reduction.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: LATE POST-EMERGENCE APPLICATIONS Fill the spray tank one-half to three-quarters full with water and start agitation. Add the required amount of 28-0-0, 10-34-0, or 6-24-6 to the spray solution. Using a calibrated measuring device, add the required amount of PURSUIT herbicide while the solution remains agitating. Using a separate calibrated measuring device, add the required amount of BASAGRAN or BASAGRAN FORTE herbicide and make sure it is thoroughly mixed. Continue agitation while adding the required amount of non-ionic surfactant (for PURSUIT herbicide + BASAGRAN herbicide ONLY). Continue agitation while filling the remainder of the tank with water.
