ACETACHLOR 7.0 EC herbicide is recommended for control of yellow nutsedge and the annual grasses and broadleaf weeds listed in the 'WEEDS CONTROLLED" section of this label. This product will not control emerged seedlings. This product may be applied either as a surface application before or after planting, or after crop emergence. This product may also be shallowly incorporated prior to planting to blend the herbicide treatment into the upper 1 to 2 inches of soil. Except for minimum or conservation tillage systems, the seedbed should be fine, firm and free of clods and trash.
Read and carefully observe precautionary statements and all other information appearing on the labeling of all products used in mixtures and sequential treatments.

This chemical demonstrates the properties and characteristics associated with chemicals detected in ground water. The use of this chemical in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the ground water is shallow, may result in ground water contamination. Do not apply to the following soils if ground water depth is 30 feet or less: sands with less than 3 percent organic matter; loamy sands with less than 2 percent organic matter; or sandy foams with less than 1 percent organic matter.
This product may not be mixed or loaded within 50 feet of any wells (including abandoned wells and drainage wells), sink holes, intermittent streams and rivers, and nalural or impounded lakes and reservoirs.
This setback does not apply to properly capped or plugged abandoned wells and does not apply to impervious pad or properly diked mixing/loading areas.
Operations that involve mixing, loading, rinsing, or washing of this product into or from pesticide handling or application equipment or containers within 50 feet of any well are prohibited unless conducted on an impervious pad constructed to withstand the weight of the heaviest load that may be positioned on or moved across the pad. Such a pad shall be designed and maintained to contain any product spills or equipment leaks, container or equipment rinse or washwater, and rainwater that may fall on pad. Surface water shall not be allowed to eilher flow over or from the pad, which means the pad must be self-contained. The pad shall be sloped to facilitate material removal. An unroofed pad shall be of sufficient capacity to contain a minimum of 110 percent of the capacity of the largest pesticide container or application equipment on the pad. A pad that is covered by a roof of sufficient size to completely exclude precipitation from contact with
the pad shall have a minimum conlainment capacity of 100 percent of the capacity of the largest pesticide container or application equipment on the pad. Containment capacities as described above shall be maintained at all times. The above specified minimum containment capacities do not apply to vehicles when delivering pesticide shipments to the mixing/loading site. States may have in effect additional requirements regarding wellhead setbacks and operational containment.
Do not flood irrigate to apply or incorporate this product.
Product must be used in' a manner which will prevent back siphoning into wells, spills or improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixtures or rinsates.
Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
Disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixtures or rinsate should be according to label use instructions or according to the State Pesticide or Environmental Control Agency or the Hazardous Waste representative at the nearest EPA regional office.
Do not apply under conditions which favor runoff or wind erosion of soil containing this product to non-target areas. To prevent off-site movement due to runoff or wind erosion:
Avoid treating powdery dry or light sandy soils when conditions are favorable for wind erosion. Under these conditions, the soil surface should first be settled by rainfall or irrigation.
Do not apply to impervious substrates such as paved or highly compacted surfaces or frozen or snow covered soils.
Do not use tailwater from the first flood or furrow irrigation of treated fields to treat non-target crops unless at least 1/2 inch of rain-fall has occurred between application and the first irrigation.
Do not apply this product using aerial application equipment.
Do not apply when wind conditions favor drift to non-target sites. To minimize spray drift to non-target areas:
Use low pressure application equipment capable of producing a large droplet spray. Do not use nozzles that produce a fine droplet spray. Minimize drift by using sufficient spray volume to ensure adequate coverage with large droplet size sprays.
Keep ground driven spray boom as low as possible above the target surface.
Make application when the wind velocity favors on-target product deposition (approximately 3 to 10 mph). Do not apply when wind velocity exceeds 15 mph. Avoid application when gusts approach 15 mph.
Low humidity and high temperatures increase the likelihood of spray drift to sensitive areas. Avoid spraying during conditions of low humidity and/or high temperatures. Do not apply during inversion conditions.
Use of this product not consistent with this label may result in injury to persons, animals or crops, or other unintended consequences.
Flush sprayer with clean water after use.
Do not rotate to crops other than soybeans, corn (all types including sweet corn), milo (sorghum), wheat, or tobacco.
