PRODUCT INFORMATION
Alion® Herbicide is formulated as a suspension concentrate of indaziflam at a concentration of 1.67 pounds of active ingredient per gallon.
Alion Herbicide is a preemergence herbicide for control of annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in citrus fruit, stone fruit, pome fruit, grapes, tree nuts, and olives. Alion Herbicide may be applied to the soil as a uniform broadcast or band application for the prevention of new weed emergence.
Alion Herbicide provides preemergence, residual control of weeds. A dry soil surface at time of application and 48 hours after application is optimum for binding the active ingredient to soil particles and preventing its downward movement to the crop’s roots. Moisture is needed for activation of Alion Herbicide. Dry soil conditions following the initial 48-hour period after application of Alion Herbicide may result in reduced weed control. Weeds that germinate prior to activation by rain or irrigation may not be controlled. If weeds have emerged, the addition of a foliar active herbicide is needed . Alion Herbicide applied alone will not control weeds that are already emerged. Refer to the “Tank Mix Instructions” section.
This product controls weeds by inhibiting cellulose biosynthesis in plants. It may be applied at any time when the ground is not frozen or covered with snow. It will provide most effective residual weed control when applied to a dry soil surface followed by 48 hours without irrigation or rain, and then followed by adequate moisture from rain or an irrigation event within 21 days and prior to weed seed germination. Weed seeds and seedlings must come into contact with Alion Herbicide prior to emergence to be controlled. If insufficient moisture is present, some weeds may germinate and emerge from below the treated layer of soil. Avoid using Alion Herbicide in areas where soil runoff or erosion is likely to occur.
Excessive crop or weed present on the soil surface at the time of application may prevent a uniform distribution of the product reaching the soil and consequently may reduce weed control. Performance may be improved by removing the debris prior to applying Alion Herbicide. In very dense stands of living weeds, an application of a foliar active herbicide first then followed 3-6 weeks later with the application of Alion Herbicide is recommended for improved performance.
The level of weed control is dependent on many variables including soil texture, moisture, temperature, weed species present, the amount of weed seed present in the soil, and the crop canopy.
Do not apply within 25 feet of ponds, lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands, and habitat containing aquatic and semi-aquatic plants.
The Pre-Harvest Interval (PHI) is 7 days for citrus and 14 days for all other crops listed on this label.

Rate Ranges
Select proper use rate based on crop or application site and soil texture, and percent organic matter content. Soils with high clay content may require a higher use rate of Alion Herbicide than soils with low clay content. Where rate ranges are given, use lower rates within the range on coarser textured soils and higher rates within the range on finer textured soils. Using the higher rates will provide longer weed control and may also improve control in fields with heavy weed or crop debris.
Alion Herbicide may be used on soils with greater than 10% organic matter; however, the length and level of weed control may be reduced compared to soils with lower organic matter.

Chemical resistant gloves made of any waterproof material

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
Avoid direct or indirect spray contact with crop foliage, green bark, roots, or fruit as it may cause localized crop injury or death. Only trunks with callused, mature brown bark may be sprayed with Alion Herbicide. If the trunks are not fully callused mature brown bark, they should not be sprayed unless protected from spray contact by nonporous wraps, grow tubes or waxed containers. Contact of Alion Herbicide with tissues other than mature brown bark may result in serious damage or plant death.
The soil surface where Alion Herbicide is to be applied should not have open channels or cracks in the soil. This is to prevent the product from reaching the crop roots either through direct contact from the spray application or with water movement from rain or irrigation as this may cause crop injury. If depressions in the soil such as from settling following transplanting exist around the base of the crop, fill them in with soil prior to applying Alion Herbicide. Crops that are stressed may be more sensitive to herbicide injury and should not be treated.
Weed control activity may be reduced if the application is made to soil covered in heavy crop or weed debris that prevents a uniform distribution of the product reaching the soil. Removing the debris prior to applying Alion Herbicide may improve weed control.
Rates provided on this label are based on broadcast treatment. For banded applications, reduce the broadcast rate of Alion Herbicide to the proportion of the field being treated. No area of the field may be treated with more than the highest rate provided on this label regardless of the portion of the field that this represents.
Use of spot spraying around desired plants is not recommended due to the variability of the actual
application rate . Excessive application rates may result in severe crop injury or death.
Do not use in crops that exhibit low vigor or poor health as they may be more susceptible to crop injury. Causes of reduced vigor may include such things as previous pesticide applications, excess fertilizer or salt, diseases, insects, nematodes, drought, flooding, wind damage, frost, nutrient deficiency, or mechanical damage.

RESTRICTIONS FOR USE
Alion Herbicide can only be applied in citrus trees established for a minimum of one year after transplanting and exhibiting normal growth and good vigor or in new citrus groves one month after planting if the transplanted trees were potted plants (such as citripots) and not bare-rooted, the trunks are protected from spray contact by nonporous wraps, grow tubes or waxed containers, and the trees are actively growing and exhibiting good health and vigor.

SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
Spray equipment and weather affect spray drift. Consider all factors when making application decisions. Where states have more stringent regulations, they must be observed. Avoiding spray drift is the responsibility of the applicator or grower. To reduce the potential for drift, the application equipment must be set to apply medium to large droplets (i.e ., ASAE Standard 572) with corresponding spray pressure. Use high flow rate nozzles to apply the highest practical spray volume. With most nozzle types, narrower spray angles produce larger droplets. Follow the nozzle manufacturer’s directions on pressure, orientation, spray volume, etc., in order to minimize drift and optimize coverage and control.

Wind
Avoid making applications when spray particles may be carried by air currents to areas where sensitive crops and plants are growing. Do not spray near sensitive plants if wind is gusty, below 2 mph, or in excess of 10 mph and moving in the direction of adjacent areas of sensitive crops or plants. Do not apply during temperature inversions. Always make applications when there is some air movement to determine the direction and distance of possible spray drift.
Local terrain may influence wind patterns; the applicator should be familiar with local conditions and understand how they may impact spray drift. Boom or nozzle shielding can reduce the effects of wind or air currents on drift. Verify that the shields do not interfere with uniform deposition of product prior to application.

Temperature Inversion
A surface temperature inversion (i.e ., increasing temperature with increasing altitude) greatly increases the potential for drift. Avoid application when conditions are favorable to inversion. Presence of ground fog is a good indicator of a surface temperature inversion.

Sensitive Areas
Sensitive areas to Alion Herbicide are defined as natural bodies of water (ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams), wetlands, habitats of endangered species and non-labeled agricultural crop areas. Applicators must take all precautions necessary to minimize spray drift to these sensitive areas.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
Alion Herbicide can only be applied by ground equipment. Do not apply by aerial equipment, chemigation, or spot spraying around desired plants.
Apply Alion Herbicide alone or in an approved tank mixture in a minimum of 10 gallons of spray mixture per acre. Use higher spray volumes to improve distribution in high densities of emerged weeds or debris. Uniform, thorough spray coverage directed to the soil at the base of the crop is important to achieve consistent weed control. Do not allow spray to directly or indirectly contact crop foliage, green bark, roots, or fruit as it may cause localized crop injury. Application may be made as a broadcast treatment or as a banded treatment under vineyard, grove, or orchard crops. When making banded applications use proportionately less spray water and Alion Herbicide. The dosage listed on this label is for the treated area of the field regardless of the portion of the field that this represents.

Application Equipment
To minimize spray drift to non-target areas, apply this product using nozzles that deliver a medium or larger spray droplet as defined by the ASAE standard S-572 and as shown in nozzle manufacturer’s catalogues. Keep the spray boom at the lowest possible spray height recommended by the nozzle manufacturer above the target surface. Refer to nozzle manufacturer’s recommendations for proper nozzle, pressure setting and sprayer speed for optimum product performance and minimal spray drift. Use sprayers that provide accurate and uniform application to ensure proper distribution . An off-center (OC) nozzle located at the end of the boom may be used to spray near the trunk but must be oriented so that it directs spray to avoid spray contact with crop foliage and green bark. Maintain adequate agitation at all times including momentary stops. Since settling may occur and be difficult to get back into suspension, spray solution should not be left in the tank overnight.
Ensure that the spray equipment including spray tank, pumps, lines, filters, screens, and nozzles are clean and free of residue from previous use before mixing and applying Alion Herbicide by following the instructions listed under SPRAYER CLEANUP PROCEDURE. Residue remaining in the spray equipment from previous uses can cause crop injury if not properly cleaned. After applying Alion Herbicide, follow the cleaning instructions again to ensure that no product remains in the spray equipment.
Uniform thorough spray coverage is important to achieve consistent weed control. Select nozzles, pressure, and application speed that will deliver medium or larger droplets. Verify that application equipment is in good working condition and is properly calibrated to apply the correct amount of product.

Application Method

Broadcast Applications
For all crops listed on this label, apply Alion Herbicide at rates described in the Dose Rate Chart
in the APPLICATION DIRECTIONS section for the specific crop or site where this product will be used .

Banded Applications
When making banded applications, use the same dosage rate as for broadcast applications but use proportionately less spray water and Alion Herbicide. The use rate provided is for the treated area of the field regardless of the portion of the field that it represents. Banded applications may be made using the following formula to calculate the amount of herbicide and spray volume needed for orchard or vineyard strip sprays:
(Treated Band width in Inches/Row width in Inches) X HERBICIDE Rate per Treated Acre = Amount of HERBICIDE needed for treatment.
(Treated Band width in Inches/Row width in Inches) X SPRAY VOLUME Rate per Treated Acre = Amount of HERBICIDE needed for treatment.

Tank Mix Instructions
Alion Herbicide may be mixed with and applied in combination with most commonly used pesticides registered for use in the approved crops to expand the spectrum of weed control. Alion Herbicide will generally provide little or no control of weeds that are already emerged or established at the time of application. When weeds are emerged at application, the addition of a labeled foliar active herbicide such as Rely® 280 Herbicide is needed. Only use products that are approved for use in the crop to which the tank mixture is to be applied.
If Alion Herbicide is to be tank mixed with liquid fertilizers, other pesticides, or additives, compatibility should be tested prior to mixing. To test for compatibility, use a small container and mix a small amount (0.5 to 1 qt) of spray, combining all ingredients in the same ratio and mixing order as the anticipated use. If any indications of physical incompatibility develop, do not use this mixture for spraying. Indications of incompatibility usually appear 5-15 minutes after mixing. Read and follow the label of each tank mix partner used with Alion Herbicide for all precautionary statements, directions for use, geographic and other restrictions. When tank mixing products with different restrictions, follow the directions of the most restricted label.

Mixing Instructions
Ensure that the application equipment has been thoroughly cleaned from previous use before using to apply Alion Herbicide. Follow the steps as follows:
- Shake container well to ensure that the product is thoroughly suspended prior to measuring in case some settling has occurred during shipping or storage.
- Fill the spray tank with 1/2 of the required volume of water prior to the addition of Alion Herbicide.
- With the pump and agitator running, add the proper amount of Alion Herbicide first.
- Once the Alion Herbicide is completely dispersed, add any other pesticides, fertilizers or additives if they are to be applied with Alion Herbicide.
- Add the rest of the water to the desired volume while maintaining sufficient agitating.
Continue agitation while mixing and during application to ensure a uniform spray mixture.
Re-suspending SC Products in Spray Solution: Like other suspension concentrates (SCs), Alion Herbicide will settle if left standing without agitation. Reagitate the spray solution for a minimum of 10 minutes before application.

Weed Control
Alion Herbicide provides residual control of susceptible grass and broadleaf weeds when applied prior to germination. Best weed control is obtained when Alion Herbicide is applied to a dry soil surface followed by 48 hours without irrigation or rain, and then followed by adequate moisture from rain or an irrigation event within 21 days and prior to seed germination and adequate rain or irrigation is received soon after application and prior to weed germination. Supplemental irrigation may be applied following application to improve weed control.
The weed control activity may be reduced if the application is made to dense weed vegetation or to soil covered in heavy crop or weed debris that prevents a uniform distribution of the product reaching the soil. Removing the debris and / or controlling the existing weeds prior to applying Alion Herbicide may improve weed control. In very dense stands of living weeds, an application of a foliar active herbicide first then followed 3-6 weeks later with the application of Alion Herbicide is recommended for improved performance.
If weeds are emerged at application, the addition of a foliar active herbicide is needed. The spectrum of weed control may be increased when Alion Herbicide is tank mixed with other herbicides. Refer to Tank Mix Instructions section.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOR USE IN FARMSTEAD AREAS
Alion Herbicide will provide preemergence weed control around farmstead building foundations, non-paved farm roads and driveways, farm equipment lots, ungrazed fences, and shelter belts (windbreaks) around cropland when applied according to the directions found on this label.
Refer to the APPLICATION INFORMATION section of this label for application instructions and a list of the weeds that Alion Herbicide will control. Apply Alion Herbicide in a uniform broadcast spray as described in the APPLICATION INFORMATION section of this label. Apply as a directed spray when using under and around desired trees or shrubs such as in a shelterbelt once they are well established and the soil has finished settling. Apply 5 .0 fl oz/A for coarse and medium textured soil or 5 - 6.5 fl oz/A for fine textured soil in a minimum spray volume of 10 gallons per acre in a single application. Do not exceed 6.8 fl oz/A per year or in a 12 month period for any site. For small sprayers mix 0.1 fl oz per gallon water to be applied to 1,000 square feet. Avoid direct or indirect spray contact with foliage, green bark, and roots of desired plants as it may cause plant injury or death. Alion Herbicide will not control weeds that are already emerged. For postemergence control of weeds, refer to the Tank Mix Instructions section of this label and follow the Mixing Instructions provided. Only use products that are also registered for the specific use where the application of the mixture is intended. When tank mixing products with different restrictions, follow the directions of the most restricted label.

SPRAYER CLEANUP PROCEDURE
Before and after using Alion Herbicide, thoroughly clean all mixing and spray equipment, including tanks, pumps, lines, filters, screens, and nozzles with a good quality tank cleaner on an approved rinse pad or on the field site where an approved crop is being grown. Clean sprayer thoroughly after each use and before Alion Herbicide residue dries in the equipment. Proper PPE must be worn while cleaning.
- Completely drain all remaining spray solution from the tank in an appropriate location.
- Clean the sprayer using a commercially available tank cleaner following the use instructions provided by the manufacturer. A rotating cleaning nozzle may be beneficial to dislodge any product from the sides of the tank.
- Drain all cleaning solution from the tank and lines in an appropriate location.
- Rinse the tank and flush spray booms with clean water to remove the cleaning solution.
- Remove, clean, and inspect filters, screens, nozzles, and boom end caps if equipped to ensure that no product remains.
- Rinse the inside and outside of the spray tank and all lines once more with clean water.
- Drain all rinse solution in an appropriate location.
If any Alion Herbicide is left in the spray equipment and subsequently applied to another crop, it has the potential to cause injury to that crop.

ROTATIONAL CROP RESTRICTIONS
Alion Herbicide is intended for use in perennial tree and vine crops listed in this label and for non- crop farmstead uses. Do not rotate to any crops not listed on this label within 24 months after the last application. Planting earlier than this may result in crop injury or death. If a crop is not on this label, a bioassay should be conducted prior to planting if Alion Herbicide has been used in the previous 36 months. A successful field bioassay means growing a test strip or several plots of the intended crop from seed or transplant to maturity without any observed herbicide symptoms. The test should be conducted in representative areas across the field that includes knolls, low areas, field edges, and changes in soil texture. The rotational crop interval must be extended if the field bioassay does not result in acceptable crop tolerance.
Labeled citrus crops may be transplanted into soil previously treated with Alion Herbicide 1 month or more after the last application provided potted trees (such as citripots) are used.
New orchards of labeled pome and stone fruit, tree nut, and olive may be established in a location previously treated with Alion Herbicide 1 year after application. Grape vineyards may be established in a location previously treated with Alion Herbicide 2 years after application. In labeled pome and stone fruit, tree nuts, grapes, and olive previously treated soil must be thoroughly mixed to a depth of at least 6 inches prior to planting. This may be done through any combination of tillage operations such as ripping, disking, or plowing.
If other herbicides have also been used, follow the most restrictive label for the crop rotation interval.

RESISTANCE  MANAGEMENT
Indaziflam, the active ingredient in this product, is a Group 29 herbicide based on the mode of action classification system of the Weed Science Society of America. A given weed population may contain plants naturally resistant to Group 29 herbicides. Such resistant weed plants may not be effectively managed using Group 29 herbicides but may be effectively managed using another herbicide alone or in mixtures from a different Group and/or by using cultural or mechanical practices. However, a herbicide mode of action classification by itself may not adequately address specific weeds that are resistant to specific herbicides. Consult your local company representative, state cooperative extension service, professional consultants, or other qualified authorities to determine appropriate actions for treating specific resistant weeds.

Best Management Practices
Proactively implementing diversified weed control strategies to minimize selection for weed populations resistant to herbicides is recommended. A diversified weed management program may include the use of multiple herbicides with different modes of action with overlapping weed control spectrum, tillage operations and/or other cultural practices that control weeds.
Research has demonstrated that using the labeled rate and directions for use is important to delay the selection for resistance. Scouting after a herbicide application is important because it can facilitate the early identification of weed shifts and/or weed resistance and thus provide direction on future weed management practices. One of the best ways to contain resistant populations is to implement measures to avoid allowing weeds to reproduce by seed or to proliferate vegetatively. Cleaning equipment between sites and avoiding movement of plant material between sites will greatly aid in retarding the spread of resistant weed seed.
There are no known cases of weed resistance to Alion Herbicide or any known instances of cross- resistance between Alion Herbicide and other classes of herbicides or modes of action. Research has shown that performance of Alion Herbicide is not affected by the presence of biotypes resistant to glyphosate, triazines, ALS-inhibiting, growth regulant, or other herbicide modes of action.
To delay the development of herbicide resistance, the following practices are recommended:
- Use herbicides with different modes of action in the tank mixture, rotation, or in conjunction with alternate cultural practices.
- Always use at least the minimum rate specified by the label and observe all use rate instructions .
- Avoid the consecutive use of Alion Herbicide unless another herbicide that is effective on the same target weeds is used in rotation or as a tankmix partner.
- Base herbicide use on a comprehensive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.
- Monitor treated areas and control escaped weeds by alternate means.
- Contact local extension or crop advisor for IPM and resistance management information.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL    
Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal.

PESTICIDE STORAGE: Protect the product from freezing temperatures. Store the product at temperatures above 32°F and preferably above 40°F.
PESTICIDE DISPOSAL: Pesticide wastes are acutely hazardous. Improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixture, or rinsate is a violation of Federal law. If these wastes cannot be disposed of by use according to label instructions, contact your State Pesticide or Environmental Control Agency, or the Hazardous Waste representative at the nearest EPA Regional Office for guidance.
CONTAINER HANDLING
Rigid, Non-refillable containers small enough to shake (i.e., with capacities equal to or less than 5 gallons)
Non-refillable container. Do not reuse or refill this container. Triple rinse container (or equivalent) promptly after emptying . Triple rinse as follows: Empty the remaining contents into application equipment or a mix tank and drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip. Fill the container 1/4 full with water and recap. Shake for 10 seconds. Pour rinsate into application equipment or a mix tank or store rinsate for later use or disposal. Drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip. Repeat this procedure two more times.
Pressure rinse as follows: Empty the remaining contents into application equipment or a mix tank and continue to drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip. Hold container upside down over application equipment or mix tank or collect rinsate for later use or disposal. Insert pressure rinsing nozzle in the side of the container, and rinse at about 40 PSI for at least 30 seconds. Drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip.
Offer for recycling, if available or reconditioning, if appropriate. Then puncture and dispose of in a sanitary landfill, or by other procedures approved by State and local authorities.
