Huskie™ Herbicide is a selective postemergence herbicide for control of important broadleaf weeds in spring, durum, winter wheat, barley, CRP, grasses grown for seed, rye, grain sorghum (to include grain and forage), and triticale.
Huskie Herbicide is formulated as an emusifiable concentrate and is compatible with many commonly used tank mix partners.
In spring planted cereals, when Huskie Herbicide is applied alone, spray additives such as AMS, UAN or NIS may be used with Huskie Herbicide especially under challenging conditions to optimize herbicidal activity.
If Huskie Herbicide is applied in tank mixture with other herbicides or pesticides, spray additives may cause unacceptable crop response. Adding an additive in these tank mixes are not recommended unless specifically directed on the label of the tankmix partner.
In winter wheat, the addition of spray additives with Huskie Herbicide will be dictated by the requirements of any herbicide tankmix partner. Follow tankmix partner label for appropriate adjuvant requirements. Consult local Bayer CropScience Representative or County Extension agent for additional information.
Prepare tankmixtures according to the guidelines described in the MIXING INSTRUCTIONS and TANK MIX section.
1) Ammonium Nitrogen Fertilizer
Ammonium nitrogen fertilizers may be used in tankmixture with Huskie Herbicide. A spray grade quality ammonium sulfate fertilizer (21-0-0-24) at 0 .5 - 1 lb/A is the preferred nitrogen source with Huskie Herbicide for optimal weed control. A spray grade quality urea ammonium nitrogen fertilizer (28-0-0 or 30-0-0 or 32-0-0) at 1 – 2 qt/A may also be utilized.
2) Non-ionic Surfactant (NIS)
Some tank mix options require the use of a non-ionic surfactant . Use the amount of NIS recommended on tankmix partner label or at a concentration of 0 .25 - 0.5% v/v (1 - 2 qt per 100 gallons of spray solution). At least 80% of the surfactant product must be active non-ionic surfactant. Avoid products that do not accurately define their ingredients.
3) Non-ionic Surfactant (NIS) + Ammonium Nitrogen Fertilizer (in water carrier solutions)
Use a non-ionic surfactant at a concentration of 0.25 - 0 .5% v/v (1 - 2 qt per 100 gallons of spray solution) with ammonium nitrogen fertilizer. Use a spray grade quality urea ammonium nitrogen fertilizer (28-0-0 or 30-0-0 or 32-0-0) at 1 – 2 qt/A or ammonium sulfate fertilizer (21-0-0-24) at 0.5 – 1 lb/A.
4) Application in Fluid Fertilizer (Winter Wheat Only)
Huskie Herbicide may be applied using a 20 to 32% liquid nitrogen solution as the spray carrier. For fall applications, the fertilizer solution should not exceed 50% liquid nitrogen and not exceed more than 30 pounds of actual nitrogen per acre.
In WA, ID and OR: Do not use more than 50% UAN as a portion of the spray carrier at any application timing.
A NIS surfactant at a maximum of 0.25% v/v may be added to spray solutions containing liquid nitrogen. Due to the activity of fertilizer on the crop, temporary injury may result when liquid nitrogen is used as a spray carrier. Crop response symptoms due to the use of liquid nitrogen as a spray carrier may include discoloration, and leaf burn.
Huskie Herbicide must be applied with clean and properly calibrated equipment. Prior to adding Huskie Herbicide to the spray tank, ensure that the spray tank, filters and nozzles have been thoroughly cleaned. In-line strainers and nozzle screens should be 50 mesh or coarser.
1. Fill the spray tank 1/4 to 1/2 full with clean water then add AMS or UAN and begin agitation or bypass.
2. Add the appropriate rate of Huskie Herbicide directly to the spray tank. Maintain sufficient agitation during both mixing and application.
3. Add a recommended herbicide, if desired.
4. Add surfactant if desired.
5. Fill the spray tank with balance of water needed.
6. Continue agitation during Huskie Herbicide application to ensure uniform spray coverage.
CROP ROTATION INTERVALS
Huskie Herbicide breakdown in the soil is due mainly to microbial action. Under adverse conditions such as cold and drought, degradation may be slowed.
7 day: Wheat, Barley, and Grain Sorghum (to include grain and forage)
1 Month: Fine fescue, Tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, Oats, Orchardgrass, Perennial ryegrass, Annual ryegrass, Rye, and Triticale.
4 Months: Alfalfa1, Corn, Millet2, and Soybeans.
9 Months: Canola, Canaryseed, Chickpeas, Dry Beans, Flax, Field Peas3, Green Beans, Green Peas, Lentils4, Mustards, Onions5, Potatoes, Safflower2, Sunflowers, Sugarbeets, and Timothy.
1 Thorough tillage prior to planting alfalfa and a minimum of 12 inches of rainfall, overhead, or flood irrigation or any combination of these water sources totaling 12 inches is required between the time following a Huskie Herbicide application and the time of alfalfa seeding.
2 Millet and Safflower MT only: 8 inches of cumulative precipitation is required from application before planting millet or safflower in addition to the required rotational interval given in months in MT.
3 Field peas: 9 months for all states except 18 months in MT.
4 Lentils: 9 months for all states except 18 months in MN, MT, ND and SD.
5 Onion plantback interval of 9 months is only allowed if the preceding crop is grown with supplemental irrigation and onions are also being grown under irrigated conditions. Where a crop is not specified, conduct a field bioassay as described in “FIELD BIOASSAY” section of this label.
Properly calibrated ground application equipment may be used to apply Huskie Herbicide postemergence as a foliar spray. Select spray nozzles that provide best spray distribution and weed coverage at the appropriate spray pressure. Avoid uneven spray distribution, skips, overlaps, and spray drift.
Apply 11 - 15 fl oz/A of Huskie Herbicide to labeled crops from fully expanded first true leaf up to flag leaf emergence. For most consistent control or under adverse growing conditions add AMS or an ammonium nitrogen source as directed under SPRAY ADDITIVES section. Do not use less than 11 fl oz/A of Huskie Herbicide unless directed by a Bayer CropScience representative. Apply the appropriate dosage broadcast in 10 or more gallons of water per acre.
Use nozzles and spray pressure for ground application that deliver medium spray droplets as indicated in the nozzle manufacturer’s catalogs such as 80-degree or 110-degree flat-fan nozzles in accordance with ASAE Standard S-572 for optimum spray coverage and canopy penetration. Use screens that are 50 mesh or larger.
Do not use flood-jet nozzles or cone nozzles. Nozzle types, nozzle spacings and lower spray pressures that produce coarse spray droplets may not provide adequate coverage of the weeds to ensure optimum control.
RESTRICTIONS FOR USE IN CEREALS

GRAIN SORGHUM (TO INCLUDE GRAIN AND FORAGE)
Huskie Herbicide is a selective postemergence herbicide for control of important broadleaf weeds such as tall waterhemp, palmer amaranth, redroot pigweed and other important broadleaf weeds in grain sorghum (to include grain and forage).
Huskie Herbicide may be applied to actively growing grain sorghum (to include grain and forage) between 3 leaf stage of growth up to 30 inches and/or prior to flag leaf emergence, whichever comes first. Crop tolerance is best when Huskie™ Herbicide is applied to actively growing grain sorghum. If tankmixing with other herbicides, follow the most restrictive tankmix partner label.
Weed Application Timing
Huskie Herbicide is a postemergence herbicide and best results are obtained when applications are made to susceptible actively growing weeds up to four inches in height. Treat heavy weed infestations before they become competitive with the crop. To optimize yield potential, early removal of weeds is recommended. See the chart, WEED CONTROL WITH HUSKIE HERBICIDE IN GRAIN SORGHUM for weed species controlled.
RESTRICTIONS FOR HUSKIE HERBICIDE USE IN GRAIN SORGHUM
Do not apply more than 32 oz Huskie Herbicide per acre per year.
