SPITFIRE 50 SC Herbicide is a selective herbicide for postemergent control of annual broadleaf weeds including cleavers, wild buckwheat and chickweed in spring wheat (including durum), spring barley, and oats (tank mixes only).

GENERAL INFORMATION
SPITFIRE 50 SC Herbicide is a selective postemergence herbicide for the control of hard-to-kill annual broadleaf weeds such as chickweed, wild buckwheat and cleavers in spring wheat (including durum), spring barley, and oats (tank mixes only) not underseeded with legumes. SPITFIRE 50 SC Herbicide is mixed with water and applied as a uniform broadcast spray. It is non-corrosive, nonflammable, and nonvolatile.
SPITFIRE 50 SC Herbicide must be applied early postemergence, to the main flush of actively growing broadleaf weeds. Warm, moist growing conditions promote active weed growth and enhance the activity of SPITFIRE 50 SC 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 re-growth may occur. For best results, ensure thorough spray coverage of target weeds. See “DIRECTIONS FOR USE” section of this label for complete use details.
SPITFIRE 50 SC Herbicide stops growth of susceptible weeds rapidly. However, typical symptoms (discolouration) of dying weeds may not be noticeable for 1 to 2 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.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
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.

SPITFIRE 50 SC HERBICIDE ALONE
Crops Registered
Spring wheat (including durum) and spring barley

Application Directions
Apply 100 mL of SPITFIRE 50 SC Herbicide per hectare in a minimum of 100 L per hectare of water. Add Agral 90 at 0.2% v/v. See weeds species controlled under “Weeds Controlled or Suppressed by SPITFIRE 50 SC Herbicide Alone at 100 mL/ha.” Apply to actively growing wheat and barley from the 2 to 6 leaf stage. Apply when weeds are actively growing. Only weeds emerged at the time of treatment will be controlled. Best results are obtained from applications made to seedling weeds.

Application Timing
Apply to actively growing weeds in the 2-4 leaf stage. Extreme growing conditions such as drought or near freezing temperature prior to, at or following time of application may reduce weed control and increase the risk of crop injury at all stages of growth. Only weeds which are emerged at the time of application will be affected. If foliage is wet at the time of application control may be decreased. Under conditions of low crop and high weed density, control may be reduced.

Mixing Instructions
1. Fill sprayer tank 1/2 full of water.
2. Start sprayer tank agitation.
3. Add the required amount of SPITFIRE 50 SC Herbicide
4. Fill the sprayer tank with sufficient water to spray 100 L of spray mixture per hectare.
5. Add Agral 90 as the last ingredient at the rate of 0.2% v/v (2 L per 1000 L of spray volume).
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.

Preharvest/Grazing Intervals
Livestock may be grazed on treated crops 7 days following application. Do not harvest the treated crop within 60 days after application.
