GENERAL INFORMATION
Salute B is a selective herbicide that is applied as an early post-emergence treatment in Clearfield Canola (1). Use of Salute B on canola varieties not designated with the Clearfield trait may cause severe crop injury. Salute B may be absorbed through both the roots and foliage and is translocated rapidly throughout the plant. Treated plants stop growing soon after spray application. Chlorosis appears first in the newest leaves, and necrosis spreads from this point. Chlorosis and tissue necrosis may not be apparent in some plant species until two weeks after application.
Salute B must be applied post-emergence to the weeds. For maximum activity, weeds should be growing vigorously at the time of post-emergence applications.

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. DO NOT apply by air.
For tank mixes, consult the labels of the tank-mix partners and observe the largest (most restrictive) buffer zone of the products involved in the tank mixture and apply using the coarsest spray (ASAE) category indicated on the labels for those tank mix partners.
Overspray or drift to sensitive habitats should be avoided. DO NOT apply this product directly to freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, coulees, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs, ditches and wetlands), estuaries or marine habitats.
DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS
Salute B is a selective herbicide that can be applied as an early post-emergence treatment to Clearfield Canola (1) (e.g., Canola varieties with the Clearfield trait). When Salute B is applied early post-emergence, absorption may occur through both the roots and foliage. Susceptible weeds stop growing and eventually die.
Use of Salute B on canola varieties not designated with the Clearfield trait may cause severe injury.
Apply MERGE Adjuvant at a rate of 0.5% v/v (e.g. 5 L of MERGE Adjuvant per 1000 L spray solution). See Crop Specific Recommendations for additional details.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
1. When applying Salute B, always start with a clean sprayer. Thoroughly clean the sprayer by flushing the system with water containing detergent. Refer to previously applied product labels for specific cleaning instructions.
2. Apply 50 – 100 L/ha of spray solution.
3. 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.
4. Salute B Alone Add the required amount of Salute B directly into the sprayer through the tank opening. Continue agitation and add the required amount of MERGE Adjuvant.
5. Salute B Tank Mix
Add the tank mixture ingredients in the order listed below:
a) Salute A: Add the dry material first to the partially filled tank while agitating. Once dissolved, add the required amount of Salute B.
b) Salute AQ: First add the required amount of Salute B to the spray tank while agitating the spray solution. After the herbicide is thoroughly mixed, add the recommended amount of Salute AQ.
Continue agitation while adding the required amount of MERGE Adjuvant.
6. 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.
7. Between loads of Salute B, check in-line and nozzle screens and rinse and clean if necessary.
8. Upon completion of spraying Salute B, thoroughly flush tank, boom, hoses and in-line and nozzle screens with clean water to avoid possible injury to other crops.
Dispose of all rinsings in accordance with provincial regulations.

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 nonmicrobial processes (e.g. hydrolysis) to breakdown.
