For Use In
SFM Extra is for use in conifer plantations and non-crop areas such as non-irrigation drainage ditches, intermittent drainage ditches, flooded low lying areas, seasonally dry flood plains, deltas, marshes, swamps, and bogs (after water has receded), unimproved turfgrass, site preperation areas, airports, highways, railroad and utility rights-of-way, sewage disposal areas, farmyards, fuel storage areas, fence rows, soil bank land, and barrier strips.,
Fusilade II Turf and Ornamental Herbicide Type: post-emergent
This weed control product controls and or prevents: Alligare SFM Extra is a dispersible granule that is mixed in water and applied as a spray or impregnated on dry, bulk fertilizer for the following uses: In conifer plantations and non-crop sites for control of many annual and perennial grasses and broadleaf weeds.
For general weed control on terrestrial non-crop sites and for selective weed control in certain types of unimproved turf grasses on these same sites. For control of certain woody plants, vines and herbaceous weeds in site preparation and release of various conifers. T
ank mixed with other herbicides registered for use in conifer plantations and non-crop sites: When tank mixing, use the most restrictive limitations from the labeling of both products. Alligare SFM Extra may be applied to non-crop sites and conifer plantations 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. Intermittently flooded low lying sites, seasonally dry flood plains, transitional areas between upland and lowland sites, marshes, swamps, bogs and seasonally dry flood deltas may be treated when no water is present.
DO NOT make applications to natural or man-made bodies of water such as lakes, reservoirs, ponds, streams and canals. Herbaceous weeds are controlled by both preemergence and postemergence activity with best results obtained when the application is made before or during the early stages of weed growth before weeds develop an established root system. For best results on undesirable hardwoods and vines, apply as a foliar spray between full leaf expansion in the spring and normal defoliation in the fall. For preemergence control, moisture is required to move Alligare SFM Extra into the root zone of weeds. For best postemergence results, apply Alligare SFM Extra to young, actively growing weeds. Weed size at time of application Weed infestation intensity and spectrum Environmental conditions at and following treatment • Soil pH, soil moisture, and soil organic matter Use the higher rates listed on established plants and on fine-textured soils and the lower rates listed on smaller weeds and coarse-textured soils. A drift control agent may be used at the manufacturer's recommended rate in the application of Alligare SFM Extra. Alligare SFM Extra is non-corrosive, nonflammable, nonvolatile, and does not freeze.
USE PRECAUTIONS Do not apply more than a total of 6 ounces of sulfometuron methyl per acre per year when applying Alligare SFM Extra alone or in combination with other products containing sulfometuron methyl. Do not apply more than a total of 2.4 ounces of metsulfuron methyl per acre per year when applying Alligare SFM Extra alone or in combination with other products containing metsulfuron methyl. Do not apply more than 10 2/3 ounces of Alligare SFM Extra per acre per year. Do not use on food or feed crops. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS AND BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY Alligare SFM Extra rapidly inhibits the growth of susceptible weeds by being absorbed through both the roots and foliage of plants when applied as a spray.
Alligare SFM Extra is absorbed primarily via the roots when applied on dry fertilizer. Two to 3 weeks after application to weeds the growing points turn reddish-purple and leaf growth slows. Within 4 to 6 weeks of application, leaf veins and leaves become discolored followed by the growing points dying. Cold, dry conditions will delay the herbicidal activity of Alligare SFM Extra while warm, moist conditions following application will accelerate it. Vines, undesirable hardwoods and weeds hardened-off by drought stress are less susceptible to Alligare SFM Extra. For preemergence weed control, moisture is necessary to move Alligare SFM Extra into the soil. RESISTANCE 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 dominate 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 areas 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, tankmix partners and or sequential herbicide applications that have a different site of action. Do not let weed escapes go to seed. If applicable see Weeds Controlled section of label for additional information on managing herbicide resistant weed 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.
INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT This product may be used as a part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that can include biological, cultural, and genetic practices aimed at preventing economic pest damage. IPM principles and practices include field scouting or other detection methods, correct target pest identification, population monitoring, and treating when target pest populations reach locally determined action thresholds. Consult your state cooperative extension service, professional consultants or other qualified authorities to determine appropriate action treatment threshold levels for treating specific pest/crop systems in your area. It is violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Alligare SFM Extra should be used only in accordance with recommendations on this label or in Alligare SFM Extra supplemental 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.
