Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide is for preemergence control of broadleaf and grass weeds in soybeans only.
The mode of action of Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide involves uptake by weed roots and shoots. Preemergence and preplant incorporated applications of Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide require rainfall or irrigation to activate the herbicide. When sufficient moisture is received after dry conditions, Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide will provide control of susceptible germinating weeds. Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide exhibits excellent crop safety. Poor growing conditions, such as excessive moisture, cool temperatures, and soil compaction or the presence of various pathogens may impact seedling vigor. Under these conditions, the active ingredients in Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide, like other soil-applied herbicides, can contribute to crop response. It is the pesticide user’s responsibility to ensure that all products in tank mixtures with Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide are registered for the intended use. Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture.

1. Do not apply Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide if there are visible signs of cracking due to soybean emergence, or serious crop injury such as but not limited to stand loss may result.

1. Back to back application of ALS or ALS containing herbicides can occasionally result in residual herbicide stacking and potential crop injury. Applicator and grower are responsible and should be aware of previous herbicide use and potential interaction it may have with Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide application.
2. Ensure the seed furrow is closed and the seed covered on acres treated with Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide.
3. Soybean stunting may occur if excessive rainfall occurs after application but before soybeans emerge. Injury is more prevalent under poor drainage or compacted conditions or when soil is saturated for long periods of time. Soybeans outgrow stunting once favorable growing conditions return.
5. Seedling disease, nematodes, cold weather, deep planting (more than 2”), excessive moisture, high salt concentration, or drought may weaken soybean seedlings and increase the possibility of crop injury.
6. When tank mixing, follow the most restrictive use rates and precautions of the mixing partners.


Ground Application
Use a standard low pressure herbicide boom sprayer equipped with suitable nozzles and screens. Apply uniformly using properly calibrated nozzles and screens and strainers no finer than 50 mesh. Use 10 to 40 gallons of spray solution per acre. Do not exceed 40 psi spray pressure unless required by the spray nozzle manufacturer. Continuous agitation during application is required. Avoid swath overlaps. Shut off spray booms while turning, slowing or stopping, as over application may result. Do not allow Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide spray mixtures to sit overnight as settling of product and difficulty of re-suspending may occur.
To avoid injury to sensitive crops, spray equipment used for Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide applications must be drained and thoroughly cleaned with water plus ammonia before being used to apply other products. See Spray Clean-out Section 19 on page 5. Avoid all direct, and/or indirect spray contact with non-target plants. Do not apply near desirable vegetation. Allow adequate distance between target area and desirable plants to minimize exposure.

Aerial Application
Use nozzle types and arrangements that will provide optimum spray distribution and maximum coverage. To minimize spray drift, apply Gauntlet 70 DF Herbicide in a spray volume in a minimum of 5 gallons of spray solution per acre. Increase the spray volume for fields with dense weed pressure. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.
