DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Do not apply this product using aerial spray equipment except under conditions as specified within this booklet.
R/T 540 Liquid Herbicide, a water soluble liquid, mixes readily with water for application as a foliage spray for the control or destruction of most herbaceous plants. It may be applied through most standard industrial or field type sprayers after dilution and thorough mixing with water in accordance with the booklet instructions.
This herbicide moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system. Visible effects on most annual weeds occur within 2 to 4 days but on most perennial weeds may not occur until 7 to 10 days. Extremely cool or cloudy weather at treatment time may slow down activity of this product and delay visual effects of control. Visible effects are a gradual wilting and yellowing of the plant which advances to complete browning of above ground growth and deterioration of underground plant parts.
Delay application until vegetation has emerged to the stages described for control of such vegetation under the “Annual and Perennial Weed Control” (section 7.0 and 8.0) to provide adequate leaf surface to receive the spray. Unemerged plants arising from underground rhizomes or root stocks of perennials will not be affected by the spray and will continue to grow. For this reason best control of most perennial weeds is obtained when treatment is made at late growth stages approaching maturity.
Always use the higher rate of this product per hectare within the recommended range when weed growth is heavy or dense, or weeds are growing in an undisturbed (noncultivated) area.
Do not treat weeds under poor growing conditions such as drought stress, disease or insect damage, as reduced weed control may result. Reduced results may also occur when treating weeds heavily covered with dust.
This product does not provide residual weed control. For subsequent residual weed control follow a label approved herbicide program. Read and carefully observe the cautionary statements and all other information appearing on the labels of all herbicides used.
Rainfall occurring within 60 minutes of treatment may result in reduced weed control. Heavy rainfall immediately after application may wash the chemical off the foliage and a repeat treatment may be required. Do not apply if rainfall is forecast for the time of application.
Do not mix with any surfactant, pesticide, herbicide oils or any other material other than water unless specified in this booklet. For best results, spray coverage should be uniform and complete. Do not spray weed foliage to the point of run-off.
TANK MIXING PROCEDURE
The following steps should be followed when adding tank mix partners, using a herbicide loading system or adding product directly into the tank:
1. Fill spray tank 3/4 full of water.
2. Start agitation and run for entire mixing and spraying operation.
3. Add required amount of the tank mix partner.
4. Flush herbicide loading tank and herbicide containers with water.
5. If using a herbicide loading system - ensure that the loading tank and lines to the pump are empty and flushed out with water before adding tank mix partner.
6. Add required amount of R/T 540 Liquid Herbicide.
7. Flush herbicide loading tank and herbicide containers with water.
8. If using a herbicide loading system - ensure that the loading tank and lines to the pump are flushed with water and empty before starting spray operation.
Always start and end the mixing and spraying operation with a clean system.
