Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide is a water dispersible granule herbicide that must be mixed in water or sprayable
fluid fertilizer. Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide can be directly added to water, or to 28-0-0 or 32-0-0 liquid fertilizers.
Compatibility of Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide with its labeled tank mix products in other liquid carriers should
always be predetermined prior to spraying. Refer to the SPRA YABLE FLUID FERTILIZER COMPA TIBILITY TEST
of this label to determine product compatibility in fluid carriers.
Before mixing Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide and its labeled tank mixtures, examine the spray equipment, making
sure it is completely free of rust and corrosion. Be sure the equipment is free of any residues from previously used
pesticides. Flush the lines with clean water or recommended detergents after the last application. Use an approved
method for disposing of rinsate.
The proper mixing sequence for Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide and recommended tank mixtures with the
appropriate liquid carrier is as follows:
1. Fill the spray tank or nurse tank 1/4 full with the appropriate liquid carrier.
2. Start the recirculation and agitation system and continue throughout mixing and application.
3. If the compatibility test indicates the need for a compatibility agent, add the recommended amount to the
4. If ammonium sulfate is to be used, add it now.
5. Add the recommended quantity of Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide to the spray tank. Slowly add
Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide if water or sprayable grade nitrogen fertilizers (28-0-0, 32-0-0) are the
carriers; for other sprayable grade fertilizers first check compatibility and then either mix directly or preslurry
first in water depending on the results of the compatibility test.
6. If tank mixing with wettable powders, dry flowables, or other water dispers.ible granule products in water as
the carrier, these may be added now. If tank mixing these products in a sprayable grade fertilizer carrier,
first preslurry these products with water and then slowly add them to the sprayable grade fertilizer carrier.
7. If tank mixing with suspension concentrates, add the products to the spray tank.
8. If tank mixing with emulsifiable concentrates or soluble products, add the products to the spray tank.
9. If tank mixing with a glyphosate containing product, or other soluble concentrates, add the products to the
10. If mixing any additional spray adjuvants in the mixture, add them after all other products have been mixed.
11. Fill the spray tank to the desired level with the appropriate liquid carrier.
12. Gontinue-agitation during transport and application until the spray tank is empty.
Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide and all registered mixtures should be kept agitated once mixed and then sprayed
out immediately. Do not allow mixtures to stand for prolonged periods of time. Water quality, pH, temperature and/or
other components of the mixture affect how long the mixture may stand before application.
DRY FERTILIZER CARRIERS
Impregnate or coat Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide on dry bulk fertilizers before application.
SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
Spray equipment and weather affect spray drift. Consider all factors when making application decisions. Where
states or tribes have more stringent regulations, they must be observed. Avoiding spray drift is the responsibility of
the applicator or grower. To reduce the potential for drift, the application equipment must be set to apply medium
to course droplets (i.e., ASAE Standard 572) with corresponding spray pressure. Use high flow rate nozzles to apply
the highest practical spray volume. With most nozzle types, narrow spray angles produce larger droplets. Follow
the nozzle manufacturer's directions on pressure, orientation, spray volume, etc., in order to minimize drift and
optimize coverage and control.
Avoid making applications when spray particles may be carried by air currents to nontarget areas. Do not spray if
wind is gusty, below 2 mph, or in excess of 10 mph and moving in the direction of adjacent sensitive areas. Local
terrain may influence wind patterns; the applicator must be familiar with local conditions and understand how they
may impact spray drift.
Sensitive areas to this product are defined as bodies of water (ponds, lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands), known
habitats-of threatened or endangered species and non-labeled agricultural crop areas. Application must take all
precautions necessary to keep spray drift from reaching sensitive areas.
A surface temperature inversion (i.e., increasing temperature with increasing altitude) greatly increases the potential
for drift. Presence of ground fog is a good indicator of a surface temperature inversion. Do not apply during
temperature inversions. Always make applications when there is some air movement to determine the direction and
distance of possible spray drift.
All aerial and ground equipment must be properly maintained and calibrated using appropriate carriers or
Additional requirements for ground applications:
• Do not apply with a nozzle height greater than 4 feet above the crop canopy.
To avoid injury or exposure to non-target crops, thoroughly clean all mixing and spray equipment, including pumps,
nozzles, lines and screens with a good quality tank cleaner, on an approved rinse pad or on a field site where an
approved crop is grown.
Ground Broadcast Treatment
Accurately calibrate the sprayer prior to mixing the herbicide treatments. Apply Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide and
the labeled tank mixtures in a minimum of 10 gal of total spray volume/A using broadcast boom equipment.
Application must be made at a sufficient spray pressure and volume to provide accurate and uniform application of
spray particles to a given area without causing spray drift to non-target areas. If mixed with other labeled herbicides,
the spray volume may be no less than the minimum volume recommended by any tank mix product used or 10 gal,
whichever is greater. Use appropriately sized mesh screens and in-line strainers. Agitate thoroughly before and
during application with either bypass or mechanical agitation. Rinse the sprayer thoroughly with clean water
immediately after each use
APPLICATION METHODS AND TIMINGS
Apply Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide either alone or in recommended tank mixtures in conventional, conservation
or no-till crop management systems as a preplant surface, preplant incorporated, preemergence or post-emergence
application. Do not apply when environmental conditions favor drift.
Early postemergence application may not be made if preemergence applications have been made in the spring.
For season long broad spectrum weed control Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide is recommended to be tank mixed or
used in sequence with a grass herbicide.
Apply Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide alone or as a recommended tank mixture as a broadcast spray before planting
corn. Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide applications made greater than 15 days prior to planting require an appropriate
sequential herbicide application to maintain commercially acceptable weed control throughout the season. If
possible, do not move treated soil out of the row or move untreated soil to the soil surface during planting, since
weed control may be reduced.
Apply Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide alone or in combination with recommended tank mixes as a broadcast spray
and incorporate into the upper 1 to 2 inches of the soil. Avoid deep incorporation since reduced weed control and/or
crop injury may result. Incorporate with implements which provide uniform, shallow incorporation (Example: finishing
disk, harrow, rolling cultivator, field cultivator, etc.)
Apply Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide alone or in recommended tank mixes to the soil surface during planting
(behind the planter after furrow closure) or after planting of the crop but prior to weed or crop emergence. Ensure
that the seed furrow is closed prior to herbicide application or crop injury may result. Rainfall and/or overhead
sprinkler irrigation is necessary to move Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide into the upper soil surface where weed
seeds germinate. Dry weather conditions following application may reduce weed control. If adequate moisture is
not received within 7 to 10 days after application and weeds begin to emerge from the soil, a light rotary hoeing or
shallow incorporation (no deeper than 1/2 inch deep) will improve performance. Excessive rainfall or irrigation after
application may reduce weed control and / or increase crop damage.
Fall Application (for use only in IA, MN, ND, SD, Wl, north of Route 20 in NE, north of Route 136 in IL, and north
of Interstate 70 in OH)
Following harvest of crops in the fall, Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide may be soil applied into crop stubble after
October 15, when the sustained soil temperature at the four-inch soil depth is less than 50° F, but before the ground
is frozen. Apply at 5.0 to 10.25 oz/A. This application is limited to only medium- and fine-textured soils and corn
planted the following spring. Till the soil before or after application with incorporation depth of no more than two
inches following herbicide application. If a spring application of Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide follows the fall
application, the total Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide rate for both applications must not exceed 10.25 oz/A.
Preplant / Preemergence Burndown
If weeds are present at the time of treatment, a tank-mixture of Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide with crop oil
concentrate or methylated seed oil is recommended for burndown control of labeled weeds less than 3 inches in
height or diameter. If weeds are greater than 3 inches in height or diameter, or there are weeds present that are not
controlled by Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide, the addition of a nonselective herbicide such as Roundup®,
Gramoxone® Extra, Touchdown™ or other glyphosate-containing product is recommended. For additional broadleaf
weed control of giant ragweed or other difficult-to-control species, add a recommended formulation of 2,4-D and/or
atrazine. Observe directions for use, precautions and restrictions on the labels of all products selected for a
burndown tank mixture. Burndown tank mixtures containing atrazine will result in the burndown of labeled broadleaf
weeds less than 6 inches in height.
Amicarbazone WDG Herbicide applied at full dosages and recommended application timings will control many
