DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Read the entire label before using this product.
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.
For Important crop safety information, refer to the Use Directions section under the specific crop.
PRODUCT INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS
1. May be used for preemergence or postemergence selective control of annual broadleaf weeds and control or suppression of many biennial and perennial broadleaf weeds in corn (field corn, field corn grown for silage, white corn, seed corn, popcorn), and fallow croplands.
2. May be used sequentially or in tank mixtures to provide a complete weed control program.
DIFLEXX Herbicide can be applied pre-plant, pre-emergence, and post-emergence in corn for all tillage systems (e.g. no-tillage, reduced tillage and conventional).
Plant corn at least 1 1/2 inches deep. Corn seed must be completely covered with soil and furrow firmed.
In rare instances, applications of DIFLEXX Herbicide during periods of rapid corn growth may result in temporary leaning of the crop. Corn will usually become erect within 3-7 days. Cultivation should be delayed until after corn is growing normally to avoid potential stalk breakage.
Before applying DIFLEXX Herbicide to seed corn or popcorn, verify the selectivity of DIFLEXX Herbicide on the inbred line or hybrid with your local seed corn or popcorn company (supplier). This precaution will help avoid potential injury to sensitive lines.
Maximum Season Use Rate
Do not apply more than 16 fluid ounces per acre per application and a total of 24 fluid ounces per acre per year. Apply a maximum of two applications per growing season. Sequential applications must be separated by two (2) weeks or more.
Corn forage may not be harvested within 45 days of the final DIFLEXX Herbicide application. Corn grain and stover may be harvested once the crop has reached the ensilage (milk) stage.
1. Maximum seasonal use rate: Refer to specific use directions in each for crop-specific maximum seasonal use
rates. Do not exceed 64 fluid ounces of this product (2 pounds acid equivalent) per acre, per year.
2. Pre harvest Interval (PHI): Refer to the CROP-SPECIFIC INFORMATION section and then under each crop for
the pre harvest interval specific for the crop.
3. Restricted-Entry Interval (REI): 24 hours
4. Rainfast Period: Rainfall or irrigation occurring within 4 hours after post emergence applications may reduce
the effectiveness of DIFLEXX Herbicide.
5. DO NOT apply to crops under stress due to lack of moisture, hail damage, flooding, herbicide damage,
mechanical injury, insects or widely fluctuating temperatures as injury may result.
6. DO NOT apply through any type of irrigation equipment.
7. DO NOT treat irrigation ditches or water used for crop irrigation or domestic purposes.
RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
DIFLEXX Herbicide contains an active ingredient with a mode of action classified as a Group 4 Herbicide, i.e., a synthetic auxin. DIFLEXX Herbicide is readily absorbed by leaves, shoots and roots, translocates throughout the plant, and accumulates in sensitive plant’s growing points. DIFLEXX Herbicide controls weeds by affecting cell wall plasticity and nucleic acid metabolism leading to uncontrolled cell division and growth, ultimately causing vascular tissue destruction and plant death.
Naturally occurring biotypes of certain weed species with resistance to a variety of herbicide modes of action (triazine, ALS, PPO, glyphosate, auxin, HPPD, etc.) are known to exist. Repeated use of herbicides having similar modes of action allow resistant weed species to be selected and spread. To manage the selection and spread of resistant weed populations, it is important to implement herbicide diversity into the weed management program. Effective tools to implement diversity include rotation of crops (diversifies weed management tools), rotation of herbicide-tolerant traits where possible alternate herbicide-tolerant (HT) traits and/or use HT trait stacks for more efficient herbicide rotation and rotation of effective herbicide modes of action at labeled rates (reduces the selection pressure of a single mode of action by using multiple modes of action during both the growing season and from year to year).
Integrated Pest (Weed) Management (IPM)
DIFLEXX Herbicide may be integrated into an overall weed and pest management strategy whenever the use of a herbicide is required.
Repeated use of any crop protection product may increase the development of resistant strains of weeds. To delay herbicide resistance:
1. Tillage, crop competition, etc. and herbicide use, weed scouting, proper application rates, application timing, spray gallonages, etc., should be followed wherever possible.
2. Consult local agricultural authorities for additional IPM strategies established in your area.
DIFLEXX Herbicide can be applied to actively growing weeds as aerial, broadcast, band or spot spray applications using water or sprayable fertilizer as a carrier. For general DIFLEXX Herbicide application rates for control or suppression by weed type and growth stage, see Table 2. DIFLEXX Herbicide Application Rates for Control or Suppression by Weed Type and Growth Stage. For crop-specific application timings and other details, refer to the SPECIFIC CROP USE RECOMMENDATIONS section of the label.
COMPATIBILITY TESTING AND TANK MIX PARTNERS
1. Before mixing components, always perform a compatibility jar test.
2. For 20 gallons per acre spray volume, use 3.3 cups (800 ml) of water. For other spray volumes, adjust accordingly. Only use water from the intended source at the source temperature.
3. Add components in the sequence indicated in the Mixing Order Instructions section using 2 teaspoons for each pound or 1 teaspoon for each pint of label rate per acre.
4. Always cap the jar and invert 10 cycles between component additions.
5. When the components have all been added to the jar, let the solution stand for 15 minutes. Evaluate the solution for uniformity and stability. The spray solution should not have free oil on the surface, nor fine particles that precipitate to the bottom, nor thick (clabbered) texture. If the spray solution is not compatible, repeat the compatibility test with the addition of a suitable compatibility agent. If the solution is then compatible, use the compatibility agent as directed on its label. If the solution is still incompatible, DO NOT mix the ingredients in the same tank.
ROTATIONAL CROP RESTRICTIONS
The interval between application and planting rotational crops is given below. Always exclude counting days when the ground is frozen. Planting at intervals less than specified below may result in crop injury. Moisture is essential for the degradations of this herbicide in soil. If dry weather prevails, use cultivation to allow herbicide contact with moist soil.
1. Planting/replanting restrictions for DIFLEXX Herbicide applications of 24 fluid ounces per acre or less: Corn can be replanted immediately following an application of DIFLEXX herbicide (care should be taken that corn seed does not come into direct contact with the herbicide). The rotational interval is 60 days for barley, cotton, oat, sorghum, soybean and wheat and 120 days for all other crops.
2. Planting/replanting restrictions for DIFLEXX Herbicide applications of more than 24 fluid ounces and up to 64 fluid ounces per acre: Corn, sorghum, cotton (east of Rocky Mountains) and all other crops grown in areas with 30” or more of annual rainfall may be planted 120 days or more after application. Barley, oat, wheat and other grass seedlings grown east of the Mississippi River may be planted 60, 90 and 120 days following DIFLEXX Herbicide application rates of 24-32, 33-48, and 49-64 fluid ounces/acre, respectively. Barley, oat, wheat and other grass seedlings grown west of the Mississippi River may be planted 60, 90, 135 and 180 days following DIFLEXX Herbicide application rates of 16, 17-32, 33-48, and 49-64 fluid ounces/acre, respectively. For all other crops in areas with less than 30” of annual rainfall, the interval between application and planting is 180 days or more.
STORAGE AND DISPOSAL
Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage or disposal. Open dumping is prohibited. This product may not be mixed, loaded, or used within 50 feet of all wells including abandoned wells, drainage wells, and sinkholes.
Groundwater contamination may be reduced by diking and flooring of permanent liquid bulk storage sites with an impermeable material. Store in original container in a well-ventilated area separately from fertilizer, feed, and foodstuffs. Avoid cross-contamination with other pesticides.
