BROX-M is formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate containing the equivalent of 2 Ibs. per gallon of octanoic acid ester of bromoxynil and 2 Ibs. per gallon of 2-ethylhexyl ester of MCPA. BROX-M is a selective postemergence herbicide for control of important broadleaf weeds infesting small grains (wheat, barley, oats, rye), flax, conservative reserve program areas, and grasses grown for sod production. Optimum weed control is obtained when BROX-M is applied to actively growing weed seedlings. BROX-M is primarily a contact herbicide; therefore, thorough coverage of the weed seedlings is essential for optimum control.
BROX-M has little residual activity. Therefore subsequent flushes of weeds will not be controlled by the initial treatment. Generally crops that form a good canopy will help shade subsequent weed flushes.
However, certain crops or short straw varieties, for example Yaccora Rojo wheat, may not develop the crop canopy fast enough to shade the subsequent flushes of weeds.Occasional transitory leaf burn may occur. The temporary leaf burn is similar to that seen with liquid fertilizer. Because the activity of BROX-M is mainly contact, recovery of the crop is generally rapid with no lasting effect. Frequency and amount of leaf burn may be greater when crops are stressed by abrasive
winds, cool to cold evening temperatures or mechanical injury, such as that caused by hail, sleet or insect feeding. To reduce the potential for temporary leaf burn, applications should be made to dry foliage in the recommended spray volumes per acre when weather conditions are not extreme.
Precaution: BROX-M contains low volatile 2-ethylhexyl ester of MCPA. At high air or ground surface temperatures, vapors from this product may cause injury to susceptible plants. This fact should be considered when applying the product.
MIXING, LOADING AND HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS
2.5 Gallon Containers: It is strongly recommended that special care be taken in mixing and loading this product. Hands should be placed on the container in such a way as to avoid possible drip or splash.
Contact your Albaugh representative if you have any questions regarding the correct procedure for mixing and loading.
30 Gallon and Bulk Containers: Refer to the ENGINEERING CONTROLS STATEMENTS for instructions on mixing and loading this product from containers 30 gallons or larger.
Fill the spray tank 1/2 to 3/4 full with clean water. Begin agitation and add the recommended amount of BROX-M. Add water to the spray tank to the desired level. Maintain sufficient agitation to ensure a uniform spray mixture during application.
Brox-M may be tank-mixed with other pesticide products provided that these other products are registered for use on the crop/use site to be treated. The tank mix must be used in accordance with the more restrictive pesticide label instructions and precautions. No label dosage rates may be exceeded. Brox-M cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing.
BROX-M can be applied in tank mixture with many other herbicides and insecticides registered for use on approved crops. Refer to the specific crop section for rate directions and other restrictions. To apply BROX-M in mixture with another product, fill the spray tank 1/2 to 3/4 full with clean water and begin agitation. If tank mixing with wettable powder, soluble powder, flowable or dry flowable products, add the powder or flowable product first. After the other herbicide is thoroughly mixed with water, add the recommended amount of BROX-M and water to the spray tank to the desired level. If tank mixing with other product types, add the BROX-M first before adding the other product. Always mix one product in water thoroughly before adding another product or compatibility problems may occur. Never mix two products together without first mixing in water.
Maintain sufficient agitation while mixing and during application to ensure a uniform spray mixture. If spray mixture is allowed to remain without agitation for short periods of time, be sure to agitate until uniformly mixed before application.
If tank mixing with products other than those listed within each crop section, do a compatibility test to ensure satisfactory spray preparation. To test for compatibility, use a small container and mix a small amount (0.5 to 1 quart) of spray, combining all ingredients in the same ratio as the anticipated use. If any indications of physical incompatibility develop, do not use this mixture for spraying. Indications of incompatibility usually will appear within 5 to 15 minutes after mixing. To ensure maximum crop safety and weed control, follow all cautions and limitations on this label and the labels of products used in the tank mixture with BROX-M.
