For postemergence use in beans, clover grown for seed, corn, peanuts, peas, peppermint, rice, sorghum, soybeans and spearmint
Basagran' herbicide is intendecl for selective postemergence control of certain broad leaf weeds and sedges in beans, clover grown for seed, corn, peanuts, peas, peppermint, rice, sorghum, soybeans, and spearmint. Basagran does not control grasses.
Mode of Action
Basagran is effective mainly through contact action, therefore, weeds must be thorOU(lhly covered with spray.
All labeled crops are tolerant to Basagran. Leaf speckling or bronzing may occur, but plants generally outgrow this condition within 10 days. New growth is normal and crop vigor is not reduced.
Cleaning Spray Equipment
Clean application equipment thoroughly by using a strong detergent or commercial sprayer <:leaner according to the manufacturer's directions and then triple rinsing the equipment before and after applying this product.
Applications can be made to actively growing weeds as broadcast, band, or spot spray applications at the rates and growth stages listed in the weed tables. The most effective control will result from making postemergence applications of Basagran early, when weeds are small. Early application produces the most beneficial effect on weed control (exceptions: yellow nutsedge and Canada thistle), allows use of the lower rate (depending on weed species), and makes thorough spray coverage easier to obtain. Delaying application permits weeds to exceed the maximum size stated and will prevent adequate control. Do not apply when conditions favor drift from target area or when winds peed is greater than 10 mph. Apply recommended rates of Basagran to actively growing weeds before they reach the maximum sizes listed in Table 1. Application Rates for Specific Weed Growth Stages For All Crops Except Rice. For the recommended use rates of Basagran in rice, refer to Table 3. Application Rates for Rice - Flooded Fields and Table 4. Application Rates for Rice - Drained Fields, in Section VI. Crop-Specific Information.
In irrigated areas, it may be necessary to irrigate before treatment to ensure active weed growth because weeds growing under drought conditions usually are not satisfactorily controlled.
Weeds must be thoroughly covered with spray. Dense leaf canopies shelter smaller weeds and can prevent adequate spray coverage.
Do not cultivate within 5 days before applying Basagran or 7 days after application. Timely cultivation after 7 days may help provide season-long control.
Aerial Application Methods and Equipment Water Volume: Use a minimum of 5 gallons of water per acre (except 10 gallons for rice).
Spray Pressure: Use up to 40 psi.
Application Equipment: Use only diaphragm-type nozzles that produce cone or fan spray patterns.
Nozzles: Nozzles must not be more than 10 feet above crop. Nozzles must be oriented to discharge straight back with the air stream (opposite the direction of travel of the aircraft) or at some angle between straight back and straight down.
Special Directions for Aerial Application
To obtain uniform coverage and to avoid drift hazards, follow these guidelines:
• Do not apply Basagran by aircraft when wind is blowing more than 10 mph (except above 5 mph in California).
• Use coarse sprays (larger droplets) as they are less likely to drift.
• Do not apply Basagran by air if sensitive species (such as cotton, sugar beets, sunflowers, or okra) are within 200 feet downwind.
The applicator must follow the most restrictive use cautions to avoid drift hazards, includ,ng those found in this labeling as well as applicable statE> and local regulations and ordinances.
Ground Application Methc)ds and Equipment (Broadcast)
Water Volume: Use 10-20 gallons of spray solution per broadcast acre for optimal performance.
Spray Pressure: Use a minimum of 40 psi (measured at the boom, not at the pump or in t1e line).
Note: When using the lower volume (i.e., 10 gallons per acre) or when crop and weed foli,;ge is dense, use a minimum of 60 psi for best results.
Application Equipment: Use standard high-pressure pesticide flat fan or hollow cone n'Jzzles spaced up to 20 inches apart. Do not use flood, whirl chamber, or controlled droplet applicator (COA) nozzles as erratic coverage can cause inconsistent weed control. Do not use selective application equipment such as redrculating sprayers or wiper applicators. Good coverage is essential for maximum control .
