SPARTAN CHARGE is a selective herbicide that provides postemergent contact and soil residual weed control. SPARTAN CHARGE may be applied as a burndown prior to planting, early preplant, or as a preemergent application before or after weed emergence for control of susceptible broadleaf weeds. SPARTAN CHARGE is a 3.5 pound per gallon suspoemulsion containing the active ingredients carfentrazone-ethyl and sulfentrazone. Applications of SPARTAN CHARGE must be made before crop seed germination to prevent injury to the emerging crop seedlings. When applications after planting are delayed, injury may occur if seeds are germinating or if they are located near the soil surface. Observe all instructions, crop restrictions, mixing directions, application precautions, replanting directions, rotational crop guidelines and other label information of each product when tank mixing with SPARTAN CHARGE. In addition to application information, refer to the specific directions of use for a particular crop/use pattern as set forth below.
PRODUCT APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
SPARTAN CHARGE is to be mixed with water, liquid fertilizer, or mixtures of water and liquid fertilizer and applied in fallow systems
or as a preplant burndown and/or preemergence herbicide to labeled crops. SPARTAN CHARGE provides postemergent contact and soil residual control of susceptible weed species. Emerged, susceptible broadleaf weeds are easiest to control when they are small (less than 3 inches tall) and actively growing. Thorough coverage is essential for control of small susceptible broadleaf weeds. If thorough coverage is not achieved postemergent weed control will be poor. Always use the higher application rate of this product, for the appropriate soil texture and organic matter, when weed growth is dense or heavy, or when weeds are growing in an undisturbed or non-cultivated area. Reduced weed control may occur if weeds are experiencing drought stress, disease or insect damage, or when weeds are thickly covered with dust. For control of weeds not listed on this label SPARTAN CHARGE may be tank-mixed with other herbicides such as glyphosate, paraquat and glufosinate. Read and follow all manufacturers' label directions for the companion herbicide(s) except for specific use directions on this label and follow the most restrictive instructions for use. The use of a quality spray adjuvant is required for optimum control of emerged weeds. Refer to the individual crop sections of this label for specific adjuvant type and use rates.The residual activity of SPARTAN CHARGE applications requires adequate moisture for 'herbicidal activation. The amount of residual activity is dependent on several factors! These factors include, but are not limited to, existing soil moisture at application, soil type, organic matter, and tilth. Where irrigation is not available and rainfall has not provided activation, particularly for surface applications of SPARTAN CHARGE, a shallow incorporation (less than 2") is recommended for destruction of any existing weeds and to incorporate SPARTAN CHARGE. Herbicide incorporation will initiate the process of activation with existing soil moisture. In circumstances where rainfall has not occurred and/or irrigation is not possible, alternative or additional weed management practices may be required.
Under normal growing conditions, SPARTAN CHARGE exhibits excellent crop safety. Soil applications of SPARTAN CHARGE must be made before crop seed germination to prevent injury to the emerging crop seedlings. SPARTAN CHARGE applied after crop emergence will cause severe injury to the crop. Poor growing conditions, such as excessive moisture, cool temperatures, and soil compaction or the presence of various pathogens may impact seedling or plant vigor. Under these conditions, the active ingredients in SPARTAN CHARGE can contribute to crop response. Refer to the specific directions of use for a particular crop/use pattern as set forth below for additional information.
