For preplant and preemergence weed control in soybeans.
DuPont ENLITE herbicide is a dispersible granule formulation to be mixed with water at a rate of 2.8 to 4.25 ounces per acre, and sprayed for selective burndown and limited residual weed control in soybeans. When applied according to the instructions on this label, it will control many broadleaf weeds and provide partial control of certain annual grasses. Crop injury may occur from applications made to poorly drained soils under cool, wet conditions. Risk of crop injury can be minimized by not using on poorly drained soils, planting at least 1.5 inches deep and completely covering seeds with soil prior to preemergence applications.
Residual applications of ENLITE require rainfall or sprinkler irrigation to activate the herbicide. Degree of control and duration of effect depend on: rate used, weed spectrum, growing conditions at and following time of treatment, soil pH, texture, organic matter, moisture and precipitation. Best residual control is obtained if ENLITE is applied to moist soil and followed by rainfall or irrigation (~1 inch) before weeds germinate. Several small rainfalls of less than 0.25 inch each are not as beneficial as one large rainfall of 0.5 - 1 inch. On dry soil, more moisture is required for activation (1- 2 inches) before weed emergence. If moisture is insufficient to activate the herbicide, a rotary hoeing or shallow cultivation should be made after emergence of the crop while weeds are small enough to be controlled by mechanical means. Deep cultivation reduces the effectiveness of ENLITE and should be avoided.
