DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. VELOSSA must be used only in accordance with recommendations on this label, or in supplemental Helena publications. 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. The correct use rates by crop and geographical area, specified on this label, and proper mixing/loading site considerations and application procedures must be followed to minimize potential for hexazinone movement into groundwater. Users are
encouraged to consult with their State Department of Agriculture, Extension Service, or other pesticide lead agency for information regarding soil permeability, aquifer vulnerability, and best management practices for their area.
VELOSSA Liquid Herbicide is a water-soluble liquid that is mixed in water and applied as a spray for weed control in certain crops, Christmas trees, forestry site preparation and release areas, and industrial areas. It may also be applied undiluted as a basal soil treatment for brush control in reforestation areas, rangeland, pastures and non-crop areas, or by stem injection for brush control.
VELOSSA is an effective general herbicide providing both contact and residual control of many annual, biennial and perennial weeds and woody plants.
VELOSSA is noncorrosive to equipment. Care must be exercised when applying VELOSSA near desirable trees or shrubs as they can absorb VELOSSA through roots extending into treated areas. This product may be applied on conifer plantations and non-crop sites that contain areas of temporary surface water caused by collection of water between planting beds, in equipment ruts, or in other depressions created by management activities. It is permissible to treat intermittent drainage, intermittently flooded low-lying sites, seasonally dry flood plains and transitional areas between upland and lowland sites when no water is present. It is also permissible to treat marshes, swamps and bogs after water has receded, as well as seasonally dry flood deltas. DO NOT make applications to natural or man-made bodies of water such as lakes, reservoirs, ponds, streams and canals.
VELOSSA may be applied by ground equipment and, where permitted, aerial equipment. Use rates, minimum spray gallonage, and other application information are described for the various uses. Dispose of the equipment washwater by applying it to a use site listed on this label or in accordance with directions given in the “Storage and Disposal” section of this label. Before spraying, calibrate equipment to determine the quantity of water necessary to uniformly and thoroughly cover the vegetation and soil in a measured area to be treated.
VELOSSA may be tank mixed with other Herbicides and/or adjuvants registered for the uses (crops) specified in the label. Refer to the label of the tank mix partner(s) for any additional use instructions or restrictions. The most restrictive label provisions apply. If the other label instructions conflict with this label do not tank mix the herbicide and/or adjuvant with VELOSSA.
NOTE: When the air temperature is around 32°F, tank mixtures of “Gramoxone Max” (paraquat dichloride) plus VELOSSA may form a hard sludge in the spray tank. This effect is most likely to occur when the tank mixture comes into contact with aluminum.
When Herbicides that affect the same biological site of action are used repeatedly over several years to control the same weed species in the same field, naturally-occurring resistant biotypes may survive a correctly applied Herbicide treatment, propagate, and become dominant in that field. Adequate control of these resistant weed biotypes cannot be expected. If weed control is unsatisfactory, it may be necessary to retreat the problem area using a product affecting a different site of action.
To better manage Herbicide resistance through delaying the proliferation and possible dominance of Herbicide resistant weed biotypes, it may be necessary to change cultural practices within and between crop seasons such as using a combination of tillage, retreatment, tank-mix partners and/or sequential Herbicide applications that have a different site of action. Weed escapes that are allowed to go to seed will promote the spread of resistant biotypes.
It is advisable to keep accurate records of pesticides applied to individual fields to help obtain information on the spread and dispersal of resistant biotypes. Consult your agricultural dealer, consultant, applicator, and/or appropriate State Agricultural Extension Service representative for specific alternative cultural practices or Herbicide recommendations available in your area.
