Liberty Cotton Herbicide - 2012 Product Guide

  1. 1. APPLICATION GUIDELINES Liberty® is a nonselective contact herbicide that provides postemergence control of broadleaf and grass weeds, including weeds resistant to glyphosate and multiple herbicide classes. Liberty is a Group 10 herbicide mode of action.* For varieties containing LibertyLink® technology The LibertyLink trait technology is available in select FiberMax® and Stoneville® cottonseed varieties. Herbicide Recommendations for LibertyLink Cotton Weed Control Program 1st Post Application (Emergence to 14 days or when weeds are no more than 3 to 4 inches) 2nd Post Application Residual pre-emergence, PPI or at planting Liberty at 29 fl oz/A plus residual herbicide If needed, Liberty at 29 fl oz/A Environmental conditions prevent timely application Liberty at 43 fl oz/A plus residual herbicide Liberty at 29 fl oz/A applied 10 days after the first application 1. Start Clean. Start with a clean, weed-free field by using an effective burndown application or conventional tillage. 2. Stay Clean. Use an overlapping residual weed control program. Be aggressive with early season weed management to avoid yield loss and weed escapes. Residual herbicides applied at burndown, pre- emergence and/or tankmixed in the first post application help ensure optimal weed management, particularly if environmental conditions delay timely post applications. Consider expected weed species as well as environmental variables when selecting a residual herbicide. 3. Maximum Seasonal Use Rate: Up to 72 fl oz/A or 87 fl oz/A 4. Additional Use Directions: a. If environmental conditions prevent timely application, a third application of 29 fl oz/A can also be made on an as-needed basis, only if the previous two applications did not exceed 29 fl oz/A on either application. b. On GlyTol® LibertyLink cotton, Liberty and glyphosate tankmixes may reduce overall weed control. c. Full rates of Liberty are recommended regardless of tankmix herbicide. d. Make all applications when wind speeds are less than 10 mph, and not during periods of temperature inversions. e. Consult product label for full use directions, tankmix partners, restrictions and maximum seasonal use guidelines. *Herbicide mode of action groups designated by the Weed Science Society of America.
