It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
DO NOT apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation. This labeling must be in the possession of the user at the time of pesticide application. Observe all cautions and limitations on this label and on the labels of products used in combination with Sharda Imazethapyr 2. DO NOT use Sharda Imazethapyr 2 other than in accordance with the instructions set forth on this label. The use of Sharda Imazethapyr 2 not consistent with this label may result in injury to crops. Keep containers closed to avoid spills and contamination.

Sharda Imazethapyr 2 kills weeds by root and/or foliage uptake and rapid translocation to the growing points. Adequate soil moisture is important for optimum Sharda Imazethapyr 2 activity. When adequate soil moisture is present, Sharda Imazethapyr 2 will provide residual control of susceptible germinating weeds; activity on established weeds will depend on the weed species and the location of its root system in the soil.
Occasionally, internode shortening and/or temporary yellowing of crop plants occurs following Sharda Imazethapyr 2 applications.
These effects occur infrequently and are temporary. Normal growth and appearance may resume within 1 to 2 weeks.
When organophosphate (including chlorpyrifos) or carbamate insecticides are tank-mixed with Sharda Imazethapyr 2, temporary injury may result to the treated crops.
Use of Sharda Imazethapyr 2 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 ofthis product and, therefore, rotational crop injury is always possible. Under some conditions (including heavy texture soil, high organic matter, low pH or low rainfall) Sharda Imazethapyr 2 may cause injury to subsequent planted crops. Vegetable crops and particularly sugar beets are sensitive to Sharda Imazethapyr 2 residues in the soil. Naturally occurring biotypes* of some of the weeds listed on this label may not be effectively controlled by this and/or other products with either the ALS/AHAS enzyme inhibiting mode of action. Other herbicides with the ALS/AHAS enzyme inhibiting mode of action include the sulfonylureas (e.g., nicosulfuron, rimsulfuron + thifensulfuron-methyl, chlorimuron, thifensulfuron, primisulfuron-methyl + prosulfuron, halosulfuron-methyl + thifensulfuron, etc.), the sulfonamides (e.g., cloransulam-methyl, etc.) and the pyrimidyl benzoates (e.g., pyrithiobac-sodium, etc.). If naturally occurring ALS/AHAS resistant biotypes are present in a field, Sharda
Imazethapyr 2 and/or any other ALS/AHAS enzyme inhibiting mode of action herbicide must be tank-mixed or applied sequentially with an appropriate registered herbicide having a different mode of action to ensure control. *A weed biotype is a naturally occurring plant within a given species that has a slightly different, but distinct, genetic makeup from other plants.
Replanting: If replanting is necessary in a field previously treated with Sharda Imazethapyr 2, the field may be replanted to corn (imidazolinone-resistant corn only), rice (imidazolinone-resistant rice only), lima beans, peanuts, southern peas or soybeans. Rework the soil no deeper than the treated zone. DO NOT apply a second treatment of Sharda Imazethapyr 2.

Sharda Imazethapyr 2 contains imazethapyr and is classified as a Group 2 herbicide respectively. Herbicide resistance is defined as the inherited ability of a plant to survive and reproduce following exposure to a dose of herbicide normally lethal to the wild type. In a plant, resistance may be naturally occurring or induced by such techniques as genetic engineering or selection of variants produced by tissue culture or mutagenesis. Any weed population may contain or develop plants that are naturally resistant to Sharda Imazethapyr 2 and other Group 2 herbicides. Weed species with acquired resistance to Group 2 herbicides may eventually dominate the weed population if Group 2 herbicides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by Sharda Imazethapyr 2 or other Group 2 herbicides.
