Preplant incorporated herbicide for weed control (including foxtails, seedling johnsongrass, nutsedge, bermudagrass, and suppression of woolly cupgrass and wild proso millet) in field, sweet, pop, and silage corn
Eradicane 6.7-E herbicide is a selective soil applied herbicide which must be mixed or incorporated into the soil for control of weeds listed on this label. Eradicane 6.7-E herbicide controls weeds by interfering with normal germination and seedling development. Eradicane 6.7-E herbicide will not control established or germinated weeds present at application.
WEED RESISTANCE MANAGMENT
For resistance management, please note that Eptam 7E is a Group 8 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to Eptam 7E and Group 8 herbicides. The resistant biotypes may dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly in the same field. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
Best Management Practices
To delay herbicide resistance take one or more of the following steps:
x Rotate the use of Eptam 7E or other Group 8 herbicides within a growing season sequence or among growing seasons with different herbicide groups that control the same weeds in a field.
x Use tank mixtures with herbicides from a different group if such use is permitted; where information on resistance in target weed species is available, use the less resistance-prone partner at a rate that will control the target weed(s) equally as well as the more resistance-prone partner.
x Adopt an integrated weed-management program for herbicide use that includes scouting and uses historical information related to herbicide use and crop rotation, and that considers tillage ( or other mechanical control methods), cultural ( e.g., higher crop seeding rates; precision fertilizer application method and timing to favor the crop and not the weeds), biological (weed-competitive crops or varieties) and other management practices.
x Scout after herbicide application to monitor weed populations for early signs of resistance development. Indicators of possible herbicide resistance include:
o (1) failure to control a weed species normally controlled by the herbicide at the dose applied, especially if control is achieved on adjacent weeds;
o (2) a spreading patch of non-controlled plants of a particular weed species;
o (3) surviving plants mixed with controlled individuals of the same species.
x If a weed pest population continues to progress after treatment with this product, discontinue use of this product, and switch to another management strategy or herbicide with a different mode of action, if available.
x Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for additional pesticide resistance-management and/or integrated weedmanagement recommendations for specific crops and weed biotypes.
x For further information or to report suspected resistane, contact Gowan Company representative.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS ON THIS LABEL MAY RESULT IN CROP INJURY, POOR WEED CONTROL, OR ILLEGAL RESIDUES.
Eradicane 6.7-E can be stored at temperatures as low as minus 50°F.
Eradicane 6.7-E should be used for recommended purposes and at recommended rates. Do not overdose.
Eradicane 6.7-E is recommended for use only on mineral soils (those soils containing less than 10% organic matter).
Eradicane 6.7-E may be used on production seed corn.
Eradicane 6.7-E should not be stored near seeds or fertilizers.
All containers of Eradicane 6.7-E should be kept tightly closed when not in use.
Eradicane 6.7-E will not harm the treated crop nor leave harmful soil residues past harvest when applied properly and environmental conditions exist for normal plant growth during the season.
Adverse conditions such as unusually cold and wet or hot and dry weather during germination and early growth; insect, nematode, or plant disease attack; carryover soil residues of persistent herbicides or use of certain soil applied systemic insecticides can create abnormal conditions that weaken crop seedlings. Eradicane 6.7-E used under these conditions could result in crop injury. Continuous use of Eradicane 6.7-E in the same fields consecutively year after year can in some areas lead to a decrease in the level of performance. As a precaution, Eradicane 6.7-E treated fields should be rotated with another crop or herbicide classification on an annual program.
Do not use Eradicane 6.7-E on corn seed stock such as Breeders, Foundation, or Increase.
Do not use Eradicane 6.7-E on sorghum or milo.
Do not allow Eradicane 6.7-E to contaminate water to be used on susceptible crops and ornamentals, or for domestic purposes.
Do not allow Eradicane 6.7-E to contaminate feed or food.
