FINESSE is registered for use on land primarily dedicated to the long-term production of wheat, barley, or triticale. FINESSE is a dry-flowable granule that controls weeds in wheat (including durum), barley, triticale and fallow. FINESSE is mixed in water or may be slurried in water then added directly into liquid nitrogen fertilizer solutions and applied as a uniform broadcast spray. A surfactant should be used in the spray mix unless otherwise specified on this label. FINESSE is noncorrosive, nonflammable, nonvolatile, and does not freeze. FINESSE controls weeds by both preemergence and postemergence activity. For best preemergence results, apply FINESSE before weed seeds germinate. Use sprinkler irrigation or allow rainfall to move FINESSE 2" to 3" deep into the soil profile.
For best postemergence results, apply FINESSE to young, actively growing weeds. The use rate depends upon the weed spectrum and size of weeds at the time of application. The degree and duration of control may depend on the following:
• weed spectrum and infestation density
• weed size at application
• environmental conditions at and following treatment

• Do not apply to wheat, barley, or triticale undersown with legumes and grasses, as injury to the forages will result.
• Do not apply to frozen ground where surface runoff may result.
• Do not apply to snow-covered ground.
• Do not apply to irrigated land where tailwater will be used to irrigate other cropland.
• Do not make more than one application of FINESSE or any other chlorsulfuron containing product per growing season.
• Do not use in Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Rio Grande, and Saguache counties of Colorado.
• Do not use less than 2/10 oz per acre of FINESSE preplant, preemergence, or postemergence.
• Do not apply FINESSE preemergence on cereals if the seed has germinated and has started to emerge above the soil surface.
• Do not use FINESSE preemergence on cereals that have been planted into dry soil (“dusted in”) or on very coarse, uneven seedbeds.

• Wheat, barley, and triticale varieties may differ in their response to various herbicides. FMC recommends that you first consult your state experiment station, university, or extension agent as to sensitivity to any herbicide. If no information is available, limit the initial use of FINESSE to a small area.
• Wherever FINESSE is used on land previously treated with GLEAN FC, ALLY, “Amber”, “Assert”, or other longer residual herbicides with the same mode of action, read the rotational guidelines on both labels and follow the one with the longest interval stated for your situation before choosing to rotate to crops other than wheat or barley.
• To reduce the potential for movement of treated soil due to wind erosion, do not apply to powdery, dry, or light sandy soils until they have been stabilized by rainfall, trashy mulch, reduced tillage or other cultural practices. Injury to adjacent crops may result when treated soil is blown onto land used to produce crops other than cereal grains.
• For ground applications applied postemergence to weeds when dry, dusty field conditions exist, control of weeds in wheel track areas may be reduced. The addition of 2,4-D or MCPA should improve weed control under these conditions.
• Temporary discoloration and/or crop injury may occur if FINESSE is applied when the crop is stressed by severe weather conditions (such as heavy rainfall, prolonged cold weather, or wide fluctuations in day/night temperatures), disease or insect damage, low fertility, applications to coarse soils, or when applied in combination with surfactant and high rates of liquid nitrogen fertilizer solutions.
• Injury to or loss of desirable trees or vegetation may result from failure to observe the following:
- Do not apply, drain, or flush equipment on or near desirable trees or other plants, or on areas where their roots may extend, or in locations where the chemical may be washed or moved into contact with their roots.
- Do not use on lawns, walks, driveways, tennis courts, or similar areas.
- Take all necessary precautions to avoid all direct or indirect contact (such as spray drift) with non-target plants or areas.
- Carefully observe sprayer cleanup instructions, both prior to and after using this product, as spray tank residue may damage crops other than wheat or barley.
