PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
REFINE SG Herbicide is recommended for selective post-emergent control or suppression of broadleaf weeds in wheat (spring, winter or durum), spring barley and oats not underseeded to legumes or grasses, and in certain grasses for forage or seed production.
REFINE SG Herbicide is a 50% active ingredient herbicide formulated as a water soluble granule. It is non-corrosive, non-flammable, non-volatile and does not freeze.
REFINE SG Herbicide is to be mixed with water and a recommended adjuvant and applied as a uniform broadcast spray. Recommended adjuvants are: AGRAL90, AG-SURF and CITOWETT PLUS. Apply early postemergence, to the main flush of actively growing broadleaf weeds.
Warm, moist growing conditions promote active weed growth and enhance the activity of REFINE SG Herbicide by allowing maximum foliar uptake and contact activity. Weeds hardened off by cold weather or drought stress may not be adequately controlled or suppressed and regrowth may occur. For best results, ensure thorough spray coverage of target weeds. See "DIRECTIONS FOR USE" section of this label for complete use details.
REFINE SG Herbicide stops growth of susceptible weeds rapidly. However, typical symptoms (discolouration) of dying weeds may not be noticeable for 1 to 3 weeks after application, depending upon growing conditions and weed susceptibility. Degree of control and duration of effect are dependent on weed sensitivity, weed size, crop competition, growing conditions at and following treatment, and spray coverage.
Canola, flax, lentils and alfalfa may be planted two months after an application of REFINE SG Herbicide. Any crop may be planted in the year following the use REFINE SG Herbicide.

REPLANTING TO OTHER CROPS
Minimum Crop Rotation Guidelines:
Minimum Interval - Crop
2 months - Canola, Flax, Lentils, Alfalfa
Next crop year - All crops

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
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.
Aerial application: 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) coarse 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.

When a tank mixture is used, consult the labels of the tank-mix partners and observe the largest (most restrictive) buffer zone of the products involved in the tank mixture.
NOTE: Applicators may recalculate a site-specific buffer zone by combining information on current weather conditions and spray configuration for the following applications: all airblast applications, and for field and aerial applications which specify the following droplet size category wording on the product label: ‘DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) medium or coarse classification.’ To access the Buffer Zone Calculator, please visit the Pest Management Regulatory Agency web site.

TIMING: Post-emergent application from 2-leaf to flag leaf (shot blade) growth stage of crop, prior to head emergence, but before the crop canopy will prevent thorough coverage of target weeds. For best results, apply to young, actively growing weeds that are less than 10 cm in height or diameter. Thorough coverage of target weeds is essential.
APPLICATION RATES: REFINE SG Herbicide - 30 grams/hectare. Adjuvants: Agral 90, Ag-Surf or Citowett Plus 2 litres/1000 litres spray solution
MIXING: Ensure REFINE SG is completely dissolved, then add adjuvant while maintaining agitation.. Antifoaming agent may be required. Refer to MIXING DIRECTIONS section for general instructions.

MIXING DIRECTIONS
Select a spray volume that will ensure thorough coverage and a uniform spray pattern. Use a minimum of 55 L of spray volume per hectare for ground application, and between 25 to 50 L of spray volume per hectare for aerial application. If tank mixing with other herbicides, always consult the label of the tank mix partner(s) for minimum spray volume requirements and apply the tank mixture using a water volume recommended for all products.
1. Always start with a clean and empty sprayer tank.
2. Fill the tank to 1/3 full of clean water.
3. With the agitator running, add the required amount of REFINE SG Herbicide. Continue to agitate for a minimum of 5 minutes to ensure that REFINE SG Herbicide is completely dissolved.
4. Make sure there are no un-dissolved granules, and then add the required amount of the tank mix partner.
5. If the tank mix partner is an Emulsifiable Concentrate (EC), reduce agitation to avoid inducing an invert emulsion. Once dissolved, REFINE SG Herbicide will remain in solution.
6. Add the rest of the water.
7. If required for the tank mixture, add the appropriate adjuvant. If an antifoam agent is required, add last.
8. Refer to the tank mix sections of this booklet for mixing order and other mixing instructions.
9. For repeat tank loads, reduce the material remaining in the tank to 10% of the original volume or less before proceeding with step 1, because remaining chemicals may prevent REFINE SG Herbicide granules from completely dissolving. If this is not possible, pre-slurry REFINE SG Herbicide in a small amount (5-10 L) of water before adding to the tank.

SPECIAL MIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHEMICAL HANDLERS
1. Ensure the chemical handler is clean (rinsed with ammonia).
2. For best results, add REFINE SG Herbicide to the top of the sprayer tank.
3. If a chemical handler is used, make sure that all of the granules of REFINE SG Herbicide are completely dissolved and injected into the main tank with agitation before adding other chemicals.
4. Low water volumes in some chemical handlers can cause the water to become saturated with REFINE SG Herbicide, leaving un-dissolved granules. In that case, rinse the chemical handler with clean water before adding any other chemical.
5. Always dissolve the REFINE SG Herbicide granules with agitation in the main tank before adding a tank mix partner.
NOTE: Follow the clean-out procedure recommended for sprayer tanks for the chemical handler.
