General Information: Saber Herbicide is a dimethylamine salt form of 2,4-D formulated for application with aerial and ground equipment. No additional surfactants, buffering agents or other additives are required for use with this product. Saber is formulated to be compatible with most liquid nitrogen solutions, however, due to variability in fertilizers, users may wish to perform a jar compatibility test before large scale mixing. Best results will be obtained when Saber is applied during warm weather to young weeds that are actively growing under good moisture conditions. Lowest recommended rates will generally be satisfactory on susceptible annual weed seedlings. For listed perennial or biennial weeds and under certain conditions such as drought or cool temperatures where control is difficult, the higher recommended rates may be required. In general, only weeds emerged at the time of application will be affected. When Saber is used for weed control in actively growing crops, the growth stage of the crop must be considered. Proper timing is required to obtain maximum crop tolerance and to avoid crop injury. Weed control and crop tolerance of this product may be affected by local conditions, crop varieties, cultural practices, application methods and other factors. Users should consult with
Agricultural Extension Service, agricultural experiment station, university weed specialists, seed companies or other qualified crop advisors for information pertaining to local use. In general, weed control and crop tolerance will be best when plants have neither too little nor excessive moisture before or after application, and the crop is not under other stresses.
Avoid applications when winds are blowing toward nearby susceptible plants, or when temperature inversions are expected. Do not make direct application or allow spray drift to contact susceptible plants since very small quantities of this herbicide can causesevere injury in the growing or dormant period. Plants contacted may be killed or suffer significant injury resulting in grade or
yield losses. Soil residue of this product may temporarily inhibit seed germination and plant growth.
Do not apply in or near greenhouses. Certain states have regulations which may affect the use of this product. Contact your state pesticide authority for additional
