General Information
BAS 452 18 H Herbicide is a selective postemergence herbicide for controlling a wide spectrum of annual, biennial, and perennial broadleaf weeds and brush in grass forages and selected row crops.

Mode of Action
BAS 45218 H contains two active ingredients: dicamba and 2,4-D. BAS 452 18 H is readily absorbed by plants through shoot and root uptake, translocates throughout the plant's system, and accumulates in areas of active growth. BAS 452 18 H interferes with the plant's growth hormones (auxins) resulting in death of many broad leaf weeds.

Cleaning Spray Equipment
Clean application equipment thoroughly by using a strong detergent or commercial sprayer cleaner according to the manufacturer's directions, and then triple rinsing the equipment before and after applying this product.

Application Instructions
Apply BAS 452 18 H at the rates and growth stages listed in Table 1 and Table 2 as follows unless instructed differently by Food/Feed Crop-specific Information or
Nonfood/Feed Use-specific Information. Applications can be made to actively growing weeds as aerial, broadcast, band, or spot spray applications. BAS 45218 H may be applied using water or sprayable fluid fertilizer as a carrier.
Sprayable fluid fertilizer may be used as the carrier in preplant or preemergence uses for all crops listed on this label. Postemergence uses with sprayable fluid fertilizer may be made on pasture, hayland, or wheat crops only. The most effective application rate and timing varies based on the target weed species (refer to Table 1 and Table 2). In mixed populations of weeds, the correct rate is determined by the weed species requiring the highest rate. Delaying application permits weeds to exceed the maximum size stated and will prevent adequate control. All aerial and ground application equipment must be properly maintained and calibrated using appropriate carriers or surrogates.

In irrigated areas, it may be necessary to irrigate before treatment to ensure active weed growth.

Spray Coverage
Weeds must be thoroughly covered with spray. Oense leaf canopies shelter smaller weeds and can prevent adequate spray coverage. 

Sensitive Crop Precautions
BAS 45218 H Herbicide may cause injury to desirable trees and plants, particularly beans, cotton, flowers, fruit trees, grapes, ornamentals, peas, potatoes, soybeans,' sunflowers, tobacco, tomatoes and other broad leaf plants when contacting their roots, stems or foliage. These plants are most sensitive to BAS 452 18 H during their development or growing stage. DO NOT treat areas where either possible downward movement into the soil or surface washing may cause contact of BAS 452 18 H with the roots of desirable plants such as trees and shrubs.
Avoid making applications when spray particles may be carried by air currents to areas »,here sensitive crops and plants are growing. DO NOT spray near sensitive plants if wind is gusty or in excess of 5 mph and moving in the direction of nearby sensitive crops, or if a temperature inversion exists. However, always make applications when there is some air movement to determine the direction and distance of possible spray drift. Leave an adequate buffer zone between area
to be treated and sensitive plants. Coarse sprays are less likely to drift out of the target area than fine sprays. Agriculturally-approved drift-reducing additives may be used. DO NOT use aerial equipment or apply BAS 45218 H when sensitive crops and plants are growing in the vicinity of area to be treated.
