Mode of Action: TAILWIND is a selective herbicide for the control or suppression of certain grass, broadleaf and sedge weeds in potatoes, tomatoes and soybeans. TAILWIND is a mixture of the active ingredients metolachlor and metribuzin. Metolachlor is a biosynthesis inhibitor (Group 15 mode of action) preventing cell division in emerging weeds. Metrtibuzin is a photosynthetic inhibitor (Group 5 mode of action) leading to disruption of photosynthesis and ultimately plant death.
Activation: TAILWIND must be activated by a small amount of soil moisture following application. In areas of low rainfall, a preemergence application should be followed with light irrigation of 0.25 to 0.5 inch of water. Do not apply heavy irrigation immediately after application. As with many surfaceapplied herbicides, weed control and crop tolerance may vary with rainfall and/or soil texture.
