Rifle Plus herbicide is a water-dispersible formulation for use in corn, sorghum, or fallow to control annual broadleaf weeds and to suppress perennial broadleaf weeds (refer to General Weeds List Table).

Mode of Action
Rifle Plus contains two active ingredients: dicamba and atrazine. Dicamba is readily absorbed by plants through shoot and root uptake, translocates throughout the plant's system, and accumulates in areas of active growth. Dicamba interferes with the plant's growth hormones (auxins) resulting in death of many broadleaf weeds. Atrazine is absorbed by roots and shoots and controls weeds by inhibiting photosynthesis.

Resistance Management
With repeated use, atrazine and dicamba have selected for resistant biotypes of someweed species. Combining the two herbicides, which are each active in a similarbroadleaf weed spectrum, reduces the risk of selecting for resistant biotypes.

Cleaning Spray Equipment
Clean application equipment thoroughly by using a strong detergent or commercial sprayer cleaner according to the manufacturer's directions and then triple rinsing the equipment before and after applying this product.

Rifle Plus herbicide can be applied pre-emergence or postemergence to actively growing weeds as aerial, broadcast, band, or spot spray applications using water or sprayable fertilizer as a carrier. Sprayable fluid fertilizer as a carrier is not recommended for use
after crop emergence. For crop-specific application timing and other details, refer to the Crop-Specific Information section.
To avoid uneven spray coverage, Rifle Plus should not be applied during periods of gusty wind or when wind is in excess of 15 mph.
Avoid off-target movement, Use extreme care when applying Rifle Plus to prevent injury to desirable plants and shrubs.

Sensitive Crop Precautions
Rifle Plus may cause injury to desirable trees and plants, particularly beans, cotton, flowers, fruit trees, grapes, ornamentals, peas, potatoes, soybeans, sunflowers, tobacco, tomatoes, and other broadleaf plants when contacting their roots, stems, or foliage.
These plants are most sensitive to Rifle Plus during their development or growing stage.
1. Use coarse sprays (volume median diameter of 400 microns or more) to avoid potential herbicide drift. Select nozzles that are designed to produce minimal amounts of fine spray particles (less than 200 microns). Examples of nozzles designed to produce coarse sprays via ground applications are Delavan Raindrops, Spraying Systems XR (excluding 110o tips) flat fans, Turbo Teejets, Turbo Floodjets, or large capacity flood nozzles such as D10, TK10, or greater capacity tips. Keep the spray pressure at or below 20 psi and the spray volume at orabove 20 gallons per acre, unless otherwise required by the manufacturer of driftreducing nozzles. Consult your spray nozzle supplier concerning the choice of drift reducing nozzles.
2. Agriculturally approved drift-reducing additives may be used.
