General Information
Accord XRT herbicide is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide with no soil residual activity and is intended for control of annual and perennial weeds and woody plants in noncrop areas and industrial sites, such as utility, railroad and roadside rights-of-way, airports, natural and production (plantations) forests for site preparation, mid-rotation release treatments,
and timber stand improvement activities, wildlife and habitat management areas, wildlife openings, natural areas, such as wildlands, campgrounds, parks and recreational areas, wildlife refuges, rangeland and in and around seasonally dry wetlands including ditchbanks, dry ditches and dry canals and grazed areas on listed noncrop sites.
It is permissible to threat non-irrigation ditch banks, seasonally dry wetlands, flood plains, deltas, marshes, swamps, bogs, and transitional areas between upland and lowland sites. Do not apply to open water such as lakes, reservoirs, rivers, streams, creeks, salt water bays, or estuaries.
Accord XRT is generally non-selective and gives broad-spectrum control of many annual weeds, perennial weeds, woody brush and trees. It is formulated as a water-soluble liquid. It may be applied through most standard industrial or field-type sprayers after dilution and thorough mixing with water or other carriers according to label instructions.

Although not generally required, surfactant may be added to highly dilute spray solutions or when the application rate being used is at the low end of the effective rate range.

Nonionic surfactants that are labeled for use with herbicides may be used. Do not reduce rates of this product when adding surfactant. When using additional surfactant, a surfactant concentration of 0.125 to 0.25 percent (1 to 2 pints per 100 gallons of spray solution) is recommended for surfactants containing 70 percent or more active ingredient. Read and follow the precautionary statements and applicable use directions on the label of the surfactant product.

Do not add buffering agents or pH adjusting agents to the spray solution when Accord XRT is the only herbicide being applied.

Time to Symptoms: The active ingredient in Accord XRT 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 for 7 days or more. Extremely cool or cloudy weather following treatment may slow activity of Accord XRT
and delay development of visual symptoms. Visible effects are a gradual wilting and yellowing of the plant that advances to complete browning of above ground growth and deterioration of underground plant parts 

Stage of Weeds: Annual weeds are easiest to control when they are small. Best control of most perennial weeds is obtained when treatment is made at late growth stages approaching maturity. Refer to the annual, perennial, woody brush and trees rate tables for recommendations for specific weeds.
Always use the higher rate of Accord XRT per acre 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 herbicidal activity may also occur when treating weeds heavily covered with dust.

Cultural Considerations: Reduced control may result when applications are made to annual or perennial weeds that have been mowed, grazed, or cut, and have not been allowed to regrow to the recommended stage for treatment.

Rainfastness: Heavy rainfall soon after application may wash Accord XRT off of the foliage and a repeat application may be required for adequate control.

Spray Coverage: For best results, spray coverage should be uniform and complete. Do not spray weed foliage to the point of runoff. Mode of Action: The active ingredient in Accord XRT inhibits an enzyme found only in plants that is essential to formation of specific amino acids.

No Soil Activity: Weeds must be emerged at the time of application to be controlled by Accord XRT. Weeds germinating from seed after application will not be controlled. Unemerged plants arising from unattached underground rhizomes or rootstocks of perennials will not be affected by the herbicide and will continue to grow.

Biological Degradation: Degradation of Accord XRT is primarily a biological process carried out by soil microbes.

Tank Mixing: Accord XRT 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. Use according to the most restrictive label directions for each product in the mixture. 

Buyer and all users are responsible for all loss or damage in connection with the use or handling of mixtures of Accord XRT with herbicides or other materials that are not expressly recommended in this labeling. Mixing Accord XRT with herbicides or other materials not recommended on this label may result in reduced performance.

Annual Maximum Use Rate: For noncrop uses, the combined total of all treatments must not exceed 8 quarts of Accord XRT per acre per year.
The maximum use rates stated throughout this product’s labeling apply to this product combined with the use of all other herbicides containing glyphosate or sulfosate as the active ingredient, whether applied as mixtures or separately. Calculate the application rates and ensure that the total use of this and other glyphosate or sulfosate containing products does not exceed stated use rate.

Mixing
Mixing with Water
Accord XRT mixes readily with water. Mix spray solutions of Accord XRT as follows: Fill the mixing or spray tank with the required amount of water.
Add the recommended amount of Accord XRT near the end of the filling process and mix well. Use caution to avoid siphoning back into the carrier source. Use approved anti-back-siphoning devices where required by state or local regulations. During mixing and application, foaming of the spray solution may occur. To prevent or minimize foam, avoid the use of mechanical agitators, terminate by-pass and return lines at the bottom of the tank and, if needed, use an approved anti-foam or defoaming agen.

Tank Mixing Procedure
Mix labeled tank mixtures of Accord XRT with water as follows:
1. Place a 20 to 35 mesh screen or wetting basket over filling port.
2. Through the screen, fill the spray tank one-half full with water and start agitation.
3. If a wettable powder is used, make a slurry with the water carrier, and add it slowly through the screen into the tank. Continue agitation.
4. If a flowable formulation is used, premix one part flowable with one part water. Add diluted mixture slowly through the screen into the tank. Continue agitation.
5. If an emulsifiable concentrate formulation is used, premix one part emulsifiable concentrate with two parts water. Add diluted mixture slowly through the screen into the tank. Continue agitation.
6. Continue filling the spray tank with water and add the required amount of Accord XRT near the end of the filling process.
7. Add individual formulations to the spray tank as follows: wettable powder, flowable, drift control additive, water-soluble liquid and emulsifiable concentrate.

Maintain good agitation at all times until the contents of the tank are sprayed. If the spray mixture is allowed to settle, thorough agitations required to resuspend the mixture before spraying is resumed.
Keep by-pass line on or near the bottom of the tank to minimize foaming. Screen size in nozzle or line strainers should be no finer than 50 mesh.
Always predetermine the compatibility of labeled tank mixtures of Accord XRT with water carrier by mixing small proportional quantities in advance.
Refer to the “Tank Mixing” section under “General Information” for additional precautions.

Ammonium Sulfate
The addition of 1 to 2 percent dry ammonium sulfate by weight or 8.5 to 17 pounds per 100 gallons of water may increase the performance of Accord XRT, particularly when tank mixed with certain residual herbicides on annual and perennial weeds. The equivalent rate of ammonium sulfate in a liquid formulation may also be used. Ensure that ammonium
sulfate is completely dissolved in the spray tank before adding herbicides. Thoroughly rinse the spray system with clean water after use to reduce corrosion.

Note:
When using ammonium sulfate, apply Accord XRT at rates recommended in this label. Lower rates will result in reduced performance.

Colorants or Dyes
Agriculturally-approved colorants or marking dyes may be added to Accord XRT. Colorants or dyes used in spray solutions of Accord XRT may reduce performance, especially at lower rates or dilutions. Use colorants or dyes according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Drift Control Additives
Drift control additives may be used with all equipment types, except wiper applicators, sponge bars and CDA equipment. When a drift control additive is used, read and carefully observe the cautionary statements and all other information appearing on the additive label.

Cut Stump Application
Woody vegetation may be controlled by treating freshly cut stumps of trees and resprouts with this product.

Types of Application:
Treating cut stumps in any noncrop site listed on this label

Specific Use Recommendations: Accord XRT will control regrowth of cut stumps and resprouts of many types of woody brush and tree species, some of which are listed below. Apply Accord XRT using suitable equipment to ensure coverage of the entire cambium. Cut trees or resprouts close to the soil surface. Apply a 40 to 100 percent solution of Accord XRT to the freshly cut surface immediately after cutting. Delays in application may result in reduced performance. For best results, applications should be made during periods of active growth and full leaf expansion.

Precautions and Restrictions: Do not make cut stump applications when the roots of desirable woody brush or trees may be grafted to the roots of the cut stump. Injury resulting from root grafting can occur in adjacent woody brush or trees of the same or closely related species. Different woody species growing in close proximity do not typically form root grafts.

Forestry Site Preparation
Accord XRT herbicide is recommended for the control or partial control of woody brush, trees and herbaceous weeds in forestry. This product is also recommended for use in preparing or establishing wildlife openings within these sites and maintaining logging roads

In forestry sites, Accord XRT is recommended for use in site preparation prior to planting any tree species, including Christmas trees, eucalyptus, hybrid tree cultivars and silvicultural nursery sites. Unless otherwise specified, applications of this product may be made for control or partial control of herbaceous weeds, woody brush and trees listed in the “Weeds Controlled” section of the product label for Accord XRT.
