DIRECTIONS FOR USE
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 state or tribal agency responsible for pesticide regulation. All applicable directions, restrictions, precautions, and conditions of sales and warranty are to be followed. This labeling must be in the user’s possession during application.
Injury to or loss of desirable trees, vegetation, and/or adjacent sensitive crops may result from failure to observe the following: Avoid all direct or indirect contact with crops other than rice or land scheduled to be planted with crops other than rice due to the potential for sensitivity to the active ingredients in this product.
STRADA XT2 is for use in dry-seeded and water-seeded rice planting and production cultures for weed control in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, and texas. STRADA XT2 is designed for dilution with water and spraying with common agricultural spray equipment. When applied according to label directions, STRADA XT2 provides effective control of several annual and perennial broadleaf and grass weeds and sedges. To achieve the best weed control, it is recommended that STRADA XT2 be applied to young, actively growing weeds.
The sulfonylurea herbicide component is primarily effective via foliar uptake. Once inside the target weed, it is translocated by xylem and phloem. Soon after STRADA XT2 is applied, growth of susceptible weeds is inhibited, and the plants are no longer competitive with rice. Typically, weed leaves turn yellow, then reddish; and within 10 to 20 days, depending on weed size, species, and growing conditions, the stem and roots die. Treated target weeds, especially larger weeds, may stay green but are stunted and not competitive with the crop.
The quinoline carboxylic acid herbicide component is translocated via xylem and phloem. This component possesses both preemergence and postemergence activity. Weedy plants treated with this component may show one or more of the following symptoms: epinasty of the stems and petioles, swelling of the stems and nodes with possible elongation along with leaf cupping. These symptoms are followed by inhibition of growth, chlorosis especially at the growing points, followed by wilting then necrosis. Efficacy may depend on the following parameters:
• Weed size at application
• Growing and environmental conditions (e.g. soil moisture, relative humidity, and temperature) prior to and following treatment
• Soil pH, texture, and organic matter content
• Water management (refer to section below)
Rice is tolerant to STRADA XT2 when used according to label use directions and under typical growing conditions. Adverse weather conditions or high use rate from spray overlap or other sources may contribute to leaf twisting, buggy whipping, or other abnormal growth characteristics. In broadcast or water-seeded rice, seed on the soil surface in direct contact with STRADA XT2 is the most sensitive. These symptoms are typically short-lived, and rice usually recovers without a significant stand loss or other injury Occasionally, in the presence of unusually cool or very high temperatures, transient symptoms of chlorosis and slight reduction in vigor may appear on rice, but the crop recovers within a few days without any adverse effect on yield.
