Scepter 70 DG herbicide is a flexible broad-spectrum herbicide which may be applied preplant incorporated, preemergence or postemergence in soybeans.
When Scepter 70 DG herbicide is applied to the soil, susceptible weeds may emerge but, growth stops, and the weeds either die or are not competitive with the crop. When Scepter 70 DG herbicide is applied postemergence, absorption occurs through both the foliage and roots. Susceptible weeds stop growing and either die or are not competitive with the crop. A timely cultivation may aid in the control of certain weeds or improve weed control when adequate moisture is not received after application. Cultivation should be shallow. After postemergence treatments, wait at least 10 days before cultivating.
Scepter 70 DG herbicide is absorbed by weed roots and/or foliage and is rapidly translocateded to growing points. Therefore, adequate soil moisture is necessary for optimum Scepter 70 DG herbicide activity. The amount of rainfall or irrigation required following application depends on existing soil moisture, soil texture and organic matter content. Sufficient water to moisten the soil to a depth of 2 inches is normally adequate. If adequate moisture is not received within 7 days after treatment, then a cultivation or postemergence herbicide application can improve weed control. When adequate moisture is received after dry conditions, Scepter 70 DG herbicide will provide residual control of susceptible germinating weeds; activity on established weeds will depend on the weed species and weed size.
Occasionally, internode shortening of soybean plants may occur from Scepter 70 DG herbicide applications. The internode shortening does not impact soybean yields.
Some of the weeds listed on this label have populations with evolved resistance to HG 2 (ALS/AHAS inhibiting) herbicides. If HGHG 2 resistant biotypes are present in a field, tank-mix or apply Scepter 70 DG herbicide sequentially with an alternate registered herbicide having an effective mode of action to ensure control. Consider including cultural and mechanical tactics to supplement herbicides when herbicide-resistant weed biotypes are present in fields.

Crops other than soybeans, such as cotton, corn and vegetables, may be injured by spray drift or other contact with Scepter 70 DG herbicide.
To avoid injury to sensitive crops from spray drift, follow all use directions and precautions in SPRAYING

To avoid injury to sensitive crops, spray equipment used for Scepter 70 DG herbicide applications must be drained and thoroughly cleaned with water before being used to apply other products to these crops.
Use of Scepter 70 DG herbicide in accordance with label directions 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 possible. See
Replanting: If replanting is necessary in a field previously treated with Scepter 70 DG herbicide, the field may be replanted to soybeans at any time. Rework the soil no deeper than the treated zone. DO NOT apply a second treatment of Scepter 70 DG herbicide.
Exception: if the product is soil-injected or soil-incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves contact with anything that has been treated, such as plants, soil, or water, is:
Chemical resistant gloves made of any waterproof material
Shoes plus socks

DO NOT use Scepter 70 DG herbicide other than in accordance with the instructions set forth on this label or approved supplemental labels.
DO NOT apply this product more than once per year to soybeans.
DO NOT apply more than 2.8 ounces of Scepter 70 DG herbicide per acre per year. There must be an interval of at least 90 days between Scepter 70 DG herbicide application and soybean harvest.
DO NOT graze or feed treated soybean forage, hay or straw to livestock.
