Fomesafen Sodium Herbicide
Read all label directions before using. This product is a selective herbicide which may be applied preplant, pre-emergence or post-emergence for control or suppression of broadleaf weeds, grasses and sedges in soybeans. This product is generally most effective and consistent when used post-emergence, working through contact action. Therefore, emerged weeds must have thorough spray coverage for effective control. Some bronzing, crinkling or spot-ting of soybean leaves may occur following a post-emergent application, but soybeans soon outgrow these effects and develop normally. Optimum weed control is achieved by post-emergent applications of this product to young actively growing broadleaf weeds that are not under stress from moisture, temperature, low soil fertility, mechanical or chemical injury. Certain germinating broadleaf weeds, grasses and sedges may be controlled or suppressed by soil residual activity from either preplant, pre-emergent or post-emergent applications if rainfall occurs shortly after application. The extent and consistency of soil activity is dependent upon soil characteristics, ground cover, amount of rainfall following application and the rate of this product used.
Naturally occurring biotypes of certain broadleaf species with resistance to this herbicide and related products (same mode of action) are known to exist. Selection of resistant biotypes, through repeated use of these herbicides, may result in control failures. If poor performance cannot be attributed to adverse weather conditions or improper application methods, a resistant biotype may be present. In such a case, additional treatments with this herbicide or similar mode of action products are not recommended. Consult your local company representative or agricultural advisor for assistance.
