Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP is registered for use on wheat barley triticale and fallow in most states Check with your state extension or Department of Agriculture before use to be certain Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP is registered in your state Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP is not registered for use in Alamosa Conejos Costilla RioGrande and Saquache counties of Colorado
Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP is a dry flowable granule that controls weeds in wheat (including durum) barley triticale and fallow Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP is mixed in water or can be preslumed in water and added to liquid nitrogen carrier solutions and applied as a uniform broadcast spray A surfactant should be used in the spray mix unless otherwise specified on this label Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP is noncorrosive nonflammable nonvolatile and does not freeze DuPont Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP controls weeds by postemergence activity For bestresults apply Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP to young actively growing weeds The use rate depends upon the weed spectrum and size of weeds at application The degree and duration of control may depend on the following factors weed spectrum and infestation intensity
• weed size at application environmental condition at and following treatment

• Do not apply or drain or flush equipment on or near desirable trees or other plants or on areas where their roots extend or in locations where the product may be washed or moved into contact with their roots as injury or loss of desirable trees or other plants may result
• Do not use on lawns walks driveways tennis courts golf courses athletic fields commercial sod operations or other high maintenance fine turfgrass areas or similar areas
Do not use on grasses grown for seed
Do not apply to irrigated land where tailwater will be used to irrigate crops other than wheat and barley
Do not apply to frozen ground as surface runoff may occur
Do not apply to snow covered ground
Do not apply to wheat barley or triticale undersown with legumes as injury to the forage may result

Wheat and barley varieties may differ in their response to various herbicides DuPont 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 DuPont Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP to a small area Under certain conditions such as heavy rainfall prolonged cold weather or wide fluctuations in day/night temperatures prior to or soon after Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP application temporary discoloration and/or crop injury may occur Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP should not be applied to wheat or barley that is stressed by severe weather conditions drought low fertility water saturated soil disease or insect damage as crop injury may result Risk of injury is greatest when crop is in the 2 to 5 leaf stage Severe winter stress drought disease or insect damage following application also may result in crop injury
The combined treatment effects of Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP postemergence preceded by preemergence wild oat herbicides may cause crop injury to spring wheat when crop stress (soil crusting planting too deep prolonged cold weather or drought) causes poor seedling vigor
• In the Pacific Northwest to prevent cold weather-related crop injury avoid making applications during winter months when weather conditions are unpredictable and can be severe
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 immediately adjacent crops may occur when treated soil is blown onto land used to produce crops other than cereal grains or pasture/rangeland For ground applications applied 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 Preplan! or preemergence applications of 2 4-D or herbicides containing 2 4-D made within 2 weeks of planting spring cereals may cause crop injury when used in conjunction with early postemergence applications of Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP For increased crop safety delay Metsulfuron Methyl 75XP treatment until crop tillering has begun
