ACCENT Q herbicide is a water-dispersible granule used at a rate 0.45 - 1.8 ounces per acre for selective postemergence grass weed control in field com grown for seed or grain, popcorn and sweet com. Do not make more than two applications of ACCENT Q per cropping season. The combined dosage of sequential applications cannot exceed 1.8 ounces per acre of ACCENT Q.
WHEN TO APPLY
NORMAL PLANNED USE
ACCENT Q may be used on field com, high lysine, waxy, white or other food grade com hybrids. ACCEN Q may be broadcast to com up to 20" tall (free standing) or that is exhibiting up to and including 6 leaf collars (V6), whichever is more restrictive. While ACCENT Q has a wide application window, research has shown best results are obtained when applications are made early postemergence when com and weeds are small. Target applications to com that is less than 12" tall for best overall performance.
Timing to Weeds
Apply ACCENT Q when grasses are young and actively growing, but before they exceed the sizes indicated in Table 1. Treat heavy infestations of weeds before they become too competitive with the crop, especially where soil moisture and/or fertility are limited. ACCENT Q provides weed control via foliar absorption. ACCENT Q only controls those weeds that have emerged. For later-emerging weeds, a second application or a timely cultivation is required. Applications made to weeds larger than the size indicated on this label or to weeds under stress may result in unsatisfactory control. Refer to LATE OR RESCUE APPLICATIONS.
LATE OR RESCUE APPLICATIONS
ACCENT Q may be applied to field com as a rescue treatment for the control of escaped grasses, or as a directed postemergence application on com that is taller than 20" or which has more than 6 collars (which ever occurs first).
• For com 20" to 36" tall, apply ACCENT Q with drop nozzles only and avoid spraying into the whorl of cornstalks.
• Do not apply to com that is taller than 36" or that exhibits 10 or more collars (VIO), whichever is most restrictive.
Applications made to weeds larger than those listed on this label may vary from complete control to suppression. Level of control will depend on the weed species, stage of growth, and environmental conditions.
Due to the unplanned nature of rescue applications, choices must be made between the risks that arise from applications made beyond the proper time for ACCENT Q use, and the effects of season long grass competition and/or harvest complications. These choices must balance risks from improperly timed ACCENT Q use that include, but are not limited to:
• Yield loss due to competition: Research indicates competition from foxtail exceeding 4 inches in height may reduce com yields. Applications to foxtail and other annual grasses that exceed the sizes stated on the label increases the risk of yield losses due to prolonged competition with the crop even though control may be acceptable.
• Incomplete control of grasses beyond labeled size:
Applications to grasses that exceed the labeled sizes can result in reduced control. This incomplete control may reduce com yield. Incomplete grass control due to herbicide stress: Grasses under stress from previous herbicide applications may not be actively growing and susceptible to DuPont ACCENT Q. This stress may reduce grass control in "rescue" situations.
• Ear malformation: Applications of ACCENT Q on com that has 7 to 10 collars 017 to V 10) increases the potential for ear malformation (pinching). This risk may be greatly reduced, but not eliminated, by using drop nozzles properly adjusted so as to not apply ACCENT Q into the corn whorl.
