PRODUCT INFORMATION - SUGAR BEETS, BEETS, TABLE (GARDEN), ONION (DRY BULB),
SHALLOT (BULB), AND CARROT (For Use in Washington and Oregon Only)
Nortron SC Herbicide is a selective herbicide for use in sugar beets, table beets, onion, shallot, and carrot for the control of the weed species listed in the table “WEED SPECIES CONTROLLED.”
Residual control of weeds is dependent upon soil moisture conditions; rate of herbicide used, and soil texture. The activity of Nortron SC Herbicide in the soil is reduced as the soil texture becomes finer and organic matter increases.
Crops grown under rainfall: Apply Nortron SC Herbicide alone or in a tank mix preemergence at time of planting or shortly after, but prior to weed germination. Nortron SC Herbicide or tank mix does not require mechanical soil incorporation provided that sufficient rainfall occurs shortly following application to activate the chemical. One-half inch of rainfall is usually adequate for activation. In areas where rainfall can be marginal for activation, such as the Red River Valley (Minnesota and North Dakota) for sugar beets, it is recommended that Nortron SC Herbicide be applied before or at the time of planting and incorporated into the soil.
Crops grown under furrow irrigation: Apply Nortron SC Herbicide alone or in a tank mix to the soil surface preplant or at time of planting, but prior to weed germination. Where crops are grown in beds, apply Nortron SC Herbicide or tank mix after bedding and incorporate. Since Nortron SC Herbicide must have moisture to control weeds effectively, irrigate until tops of beds are thoroughly wetted.
Crops grown under sprinkler irrigation: Apply Nortron SC Herbicide alone or in tank mix preemergence at time of planting or shortly after, and irrigate prior to crop and weed germination. Repeat irrigation as necessary to maintain good moisture in upper soil layer. Apply at least one-half inch of water during first irrigation. Do not mechanically incorporate Nortron SC Herbicide into the soil under sprinkler irrigation.
CULTURAL PRACTICES FOLLOWING APPLICATION: When properly applied, Nortron SC Herbicide alone can provide up to 6 weeks control of susceptible weed species (see table “WEED SPECIES CONTROLLED”) in table beets, onion, shallot and carrot, and up to 10 weeks control in sugar beets. When cultivating fields in which Nortron SC Herbicide has been banded, care should be exercised to minimize the movement of untreated soil into the treated band. Where a broadcast application has been made, do not cultivate deeper than two inches, as this reduces the effectiveness of Nortron SC Herbicide.
PREPLANT AND PREEMERGENCE APPLICATIONS
SOIL PREPARATION: The soil should be prepared according to good agricultural practices. Large clods can reduce the effectiveness of Nortron SC Herbicide and tank mixes. All existing vegetative growth should be thoroughly worked into the soil before treatment.
SPRAY EQUIPMENT: Apply Nortron SC Herbicide alone or in tank mixes to the soil using standard low-pressure (20 to 50 psi) spray equipment. Spray equipment should be carefully calibrated before use and checked frequently during application to see that it is functioning properly. Do not use smaller than 50-mesh strainer. Uniformly apply the specified rates of Nortron SC Herbicide or tank mixes in 10 to 60 gallons of water per acre on a broadcast basis. Avoid overlaps since crop injury may result. When applying Nortron SC Herbicide or tank mixes in a band, check to make certain that the bandwidth is accurate for the dosage rate being applied.
The spray tank and lines should be thoroughly cleaned and rinsed prior to using Nortron SC Herbicide.
POSTEMERGENCE APPLICATION APPLICATION INFORMATION
Nortron SC Herbicide applied postemergence broadens and enhances the control of weeds.
Mixing the Spray: Add Nortron SC Herbicide to the water in the spray while agitating the spray solution thoroughly.
Spray Equipment: Apply the mixture using standard low-pressure (20–60 psi) spray equipment. Ensure that the sprayer is thoroughly clean. Spray equipment should be carefully calibrated before use and checked frequently during application to see that it is functioning properly. Uniformly apply the specified rate in 10–40 gallons of water per acre on a broadcast basis or 5–10 gallons of water per acre in a band. Avoid overlaps, since crop injury may result. When applying in a band, check to make certain that the bandwidth is accurate for the dosage rate being applied. Do not use strainer smaller than 50-mesh.
SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
This chemical can contaminate surface water through spray drift. A variety of factors including weather conditions (e.g., wind directions wind speed, temperature, relative humidity) and method of application (e.g., ground, aerial) can influence pesticide drift. The applicator must evaluate all factors and make appropriate adjustments when applying this product.
Damage to sensitive crops can occur as a result of spray drift. Spray drift can be managed by several application factors and by spraying under the appropriate climatic conditions. Consequently, avoidance of spray drift is the responsibility of the applicator and grower.
STORAGE AND DISPOSAL
Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal.
PESTICIDE DISPOSAL: Pesticide wastes are acutely hazardous. Improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixture, or rinsate is a violation of Federal law. If these wastes cannot be disposed of by use according to label instructions, contact your State Pesticide or Environmental Control Agency, or the Hazardous Waste representative at the nearest EPA Regional Office for guidance.
