FIRSTSHOT SG herbicide is a water soluble granule that is used for postemergence burndown weed control in the fallow period prior to planting. The best control is obtained when FIRSTSHOT SG is applied to young, actively growing weeds. Rate selection should be based on weed spectrum and infestation intensity, weed size at application, environmental conditions at and following treatment and tank mix partners. FIRSTSHOT SG is noncorrosive, nonflammable, nonvolatile, and does not freeze. FIRSTSHOT SG should be completely dissolved in water and applied as a uniform broadcast spray.
• Calibrate sprayers only with clean water away from the well site.
• Make scheduled checks of spray equipment.
• Ensure that all operation employees accurately measure pesticides.
• Mix only enough product for the job at hand.
• Avoid overfilling of spray tank.
• Do not discharge excess material on the soil at a single spot in the field, grove, or mixing/loading station.
• Dilute and agitate excess solution and apply at labeled rates or uses.
• Avoid storage of pesticides near well sites.
• When triple-rinsing the pesticide container, be sure to add the rinsate to the spray mix.
• Do not use in season on any crop. FIRSTSHOT SG burndown herbicide (with TOTALSOL soluble granules) is only registered as a burndown treatment prior to planting.
• Do not graze livestock in treated areas. In addition, do not feed forage or hay from treated areas to livestock (harvested straw may be used for bedding and/or feed). Injury to or loss of adjacent sensitive crops, 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. Prevent drift of spray to desirable plants.
• Dry, dusty field conditions may result in reduced control in wheel track areas. Injury to or loss of adjacent sensitive crops, desirable trees or vegetation may result from failure to observe the following:
• Take all necessary precautions to avoid all direct or indirect contact (such as spray drift) with non-target plants or areas.
• Carefully observe all sprayer cleanup instructions both prior to and after using this product, as spray tank residue may damage crops other than wheat, barley, triticale or oat.
When herbicides that affect the same biological site of action are used repeatedly over several years to control the same weed species in the same field, naturally-occurring resistant biotypes may survive a correctly applied herbicide treatment, propagate, and become dominant in that field. Adequate control of these resistant weed biotypes cannot be expected. If weed control is unsatisfactory, it may be necessary to retreat the problem area using a product affecting a different site of action. To better manage herbicide resistance through delaying the proliferation and possible dominance of herbicide resistant weed biotypes, it may be necessary to change cultural practices within and between crop seasons such as using a combination of tillage, retreatment, tank-mix partners and/or sequential herbicide applications that have a different site of action. Weed escapes that are allowed to go to seed will promote the spread of resistant biotypes. See the Weeds Controlled section of this label for additional information on managing herbicide resistant weed biotypes. It is advisable to keep accurate records of pesticides applied to individual fields to help obtain information on the spread and dispersal of resistant biotypes. Consult your agricultural dealer, consultant, applicator, and/or appropriate state agricultural extension service representative for specific alternative cultural practices or herbicide recommendations available in your area
