Mossy Oak Blo Logic Weed Reaper Broadleaf
Raptor herbicide, a soluble liquid, is a postemergence herbicide to control and suppress many broadleaf and grass weeds and sedges, as listed in this label.
The mode of weed-killing activity involves uptake of Raptor by foliage and/or weed roots and rapid translocation to the growing points. After Raptor application, susceptible weeds may show yellowing, and weed growth will stop. Susceptible weeds stop growing and either die or are not competitive with the crop.
Adequate soil moisture is important for optimum Raptor activity. When adequate soil moisture is present, Raptor will provide residual activity on susceptible germinatingweeds. Activity on established weeds will depend on the weed species and the location of its root system in the soil. A timely cultivation after Raptor application may improve weed control.
Occasionally, internode shortening and/or temporary yel-' lowing of crop plants may occur following Raptor application. These effects can be more pronounced if
crops are growing in stressful environmental or hot and humid conditions. These effects occur infrequently and are temporary. Normal growth and appearance should resume within 1 to 2 weeks.
DO NOT tank mix organophosphate or carbamateinsecticides with Raptor on listed crops unless otherwise specified in writing by BASF. When organophosphate (such as Lorsban insecticide) or carbamate insecticides are tank mixed with Raptor, temporary injury may result to the treated crop. Separate organophosphate and Raptor application by at least 7 days to reduce potential for injury.
Use of Raptor is expected to result in normal growth of rotational crops in most situations; however, various environmental and agronomic factors make it impossible to eliminate all risks associated with the use of this product and, therefore, rotational crop injury is always possible.
Postemergence application of Raptor requires the addition of an adjuvant AND a nitrogen fertilizer solution unless otherwise directed in this label.
When an adjuvant (or a specific adjuvant product, such as a drift control agent) is to be used with this product, the use of a Chemical Producers and Distributors Association (CPDA) certified adjuvant is recommended.
DO NOT apply when wind conditions may result in drift, when temperature inversion conditions exist, or when spray may be carried to sensitive crops. Sensitive crops include, but are not limited to, leafy vegetables and sugar beet.
Uniformly apply with properly calibrated ground equipment in 10 or more gallons of water per acre. A spray pressure of 20 to 40 PSI is recommended.
To ensure thorough coverage, use a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre when applying Raptor to minimum-till or no-till crops. Use higher gallonage for fields with dense vegetation or heavy crop residue. Adjust the boom height to ensure proper coverage of weed foliage (according to the manufacturer's instructions). Use flat-fan nozzle tips or similar appropriate nozzle tips to ensure thorough coverage. Avoid overlaps when spraying.
Ground Application with a Low-volume Sprayer
Raptor herbicide may be applied with a low-volume sprayer. When applying Raptor with a low-volume sprayer, spray weeds before they reach the maximum size listed in this label. Weed control depends on thorough spray coverage. The sprayer must be calibrated to deliver the recommended spray volume and pressure to ensure thorough spray coverage of weeds. When applying Raptor with a low-volume sprayer, apply a minimum of 10 gallons per acre of spray solution with a nozzle pressure between 40 to 60 PSI for optimum coverage.
Raptor may be applied by air to all crops listed on this label. Uniformly apply with properly calibrated equipment in 5 or more gallons of water per acre. The addition of an adjuvant AND a nitrogen fertilizer solution are required for optimum weed control, unless otherwise directed in this label.
Avoiding spray drift at the application site is the responsibility of the applicator. The interaction of many equipment-related and weather-related factors determines the potential for spray drift. The applicator and the grower are responsible for considering all these factors when making decisions.
The following drift-management requirements must be followed to avoid off-target drift movement from aerial applications to agricultural field crops.
1. The distance of the outermost nozzles on the boom must-not exceed 3/4 the length of the wingspan or rotor.
2. Nozzles must always point backward parallel with the airstream and never be pointed downward more than 45 degrees.
Where states have more stringent regulations, they must be observed.
The applicator must be familiar with and take into account the information covered in t
