SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
A variety of factors including weather contionds ., wind direction, wind speed, temperature, relative humidity) and method of application (e.g., ground, airblast) can influence pesticide drift. The applicator must evaluate all factors and make appropriate adjustments when applying this product.
For ground boom applications, do not apply with a nozzle height greater than 4 feet above the crop canopy.
When applying sprays that contain 2,4-D as the sole active ingredient or when applying sprays that contain 2,4-D mixed with active ingredients that require a coarse or coarser spray, apply only as a coarse or coarser spray (ASAE Standard 572) or a volume mean diameter of 385 microns or greater for spinning atomizer nozzles. When applying sprays that contain 2,4-D mixed with other active ingredients that require a medium or more fine spray, apply only as a medium or coarser spray (ASAE Standard 572) or a volume mean diameter of 300 microns or greater for spinning atomizer nozzles.
Do not apply at wind speeds greater than 15 mph. Only apply this product if the wind direction favors on-target deposition and there are not sensitive areas including but not limited to residential areas, bodies of water known habitat for nontarget species, nontarget crops within 250 feet downwind. If applying a medium spray, leave one swath unsprayed at the downwind edge of the treated field.
If applying at wind speeds less than 3 mph, the applicator must determine if: a) conditions of temperature inversion exist, or b) stable atmospheric conditions exist at or below nozzle height. Do not make applications into areas of temperature inversions or stable atmospheric conditions.
Do not apply under circumstances where spray drift may occur to food, forage or other plantings that might by damages or cops thereof rendered unfit for sale, use, or comsumption. Susceptible crops include but are notvlimited to cotton, okra, flowers, grapes (in growing stage), fruit trees (foliage), soybeans (vegetative stage), ornamentals, sunflowers, tomatoes, beans, and other vegetables, or tobacco. Small amounts of spray drift that might not be visible may injure susceptible broadleaf plants.
Adjuvant Use: When an adjuvant is to be used with this product, Makhteshim Agan of North America, Inc. suggests the use of a Chemical Producers and Distributors Association certified adjuvant.
DRIFT CONTROL AND DEFOAMING: For drift control and defoaming, use a product similar to Compadre at .125% v/v.
This product can be mixed with some liquid fertilizers or liquid iron metals. Because liquid fertilizer and liquid iron differ in pH, free ammonia content, density, salt concentration, and percentage of water, a compatibility test is recommended prior to mixing in application equipment. All state and/or federal regulations relating to the application of liquid fertilizers or liquid iron and this product must be strictly followed.

ORNAMENTAL AND RECREATIONAL LAWNS AND TURF
Quali-Pro 3-D is for use on Ornamental Turf Lawns (Residential, Industrial, and Institutional), Parks, Cemeteries, Athletic Fields, and Golf Courses (Fairways, Aprons, Tees, and Roughs), and similar turf areas. Institutional sites are defined as turf areas around properties or facilities providing a service to public or private organizations including but not limited to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, museums, libraries, sports facilities, golf courses, and office buildings. Ornamental sites include turfgrass established around residences, parks, streets, retail outlets, cemeteries, industrial and institutional buildings. Residential/domestic sites are defined as areas associated with the household or home life including but not limited to apartment complexes, condominiums, and patient care areas of nursing homes, mental institutions, hospitals, or convalescent homes.
An adjuvant may be included in the spray solution.
Application is limited to 2 applications per year.
Use a maximum of 4.0 pts Quali-Pro 3-D/acre (1.2 Ibs ae 2,4-D/acre) per application.
The maximum seasonal rate is 8.0 pts Quali-Pro 3-D/acre (2.4 Ibs ae 2,4-D/acre) excluding spot treatments.
Cool-Season Grasses such as Bentgrass, Bluegrass, Fescue, and Rye
3 to 4 pints per acre ( 1.1 to 1.5 fl oz/1000 sq ft) (.9 to 1.2 lb ae/acre)
For normal application, use 40 to 80 gallons of water per acre (1 to 2 gallons of water per 1000 sq ft). For professional lawn maintenance, use 1 to 5 gallons of water per 1000 sq ft. Higher water volumes may be used when tank mixed with a turf fertilizer. Follow fertilizer labels for proper amounts to add.
Warm-Season Grasses such as St. Augustine (dormant) Bahia, Bermuda, Centipede (dormant), Zoysia
2 to 2.5 pints per acre (0.75 to 0.9 fl oz/1000 sq ft) (.6 to .8 lb ae/acre)
Use 40 to 200 gallons of water per acre ( 1 to 5 gallons of water per 1000 sq ft). Use reduced rates if grass is stressed from heat or drought. Exercise care when applying during growth stages from dormancy to green-up and from green-up to dormancy. Some temporary discoloration may occur on warm-season grasses.
NOTE: If Bermudagrass is dormant, up to 4 pints per acre may be used (1.5 fl oz/1000 sq ft). However, some hybrid Bermudagrasses may be sensitive to this product. Contact your local Extension Service Weed Control Specialist.
NOTE: Care should be taken to avoid overdosing Bentgrass, St. Augustine, and Centipede grasses, or injury may result. Large volumes of spray water (i.e., one fluid ounce in 5 gallons of water per 1500 square feet) will aid in obtaining uniform coverage. If hand-type sprayers are used, it is preferable to use a single nozzle sprayer rather than a multiple nozzle boom as sideways application with a boom where the spray from more than one nozzle is allowed to fall on the same area will result in heavy local over-application and subsequent turf discoloration or injury.
Lower Volume Equipment: Use as little as 5 gallons of water per acre. Use only application equipment that is capable of spreading a uniform droplet wetting each weed surface.
Roadsides (including aprons and guardrails), rights-of-way, and other similar non-crop areas:
For control of broadleaf weeds, mix at a rate of 2.6 to 6.5 pints (.8 to 2.0 Ib ae 2,4-D) of Quali-Pro 3-D per 50 to 300 gallons of water. This mixture will cover 43,500 square feet. Thoroughly saturate all weeds with spray mixture. Apply any time between the time when plants come into full leaf (spring) to when the plants begin to go dormant. Best results are obtained when weeds are young and actively growing. Do not cut weeds until herbicide has translocated throughout the plant causing root death. For small broadleaf weeds, use the lower rate. Heavy dense stands require the higher rate with high water volume. For small (spot) applications with small tank sprayers, apply at the rate of 4 ounces of Quali-Pro 3-D per gallon of water andspray to thoroughly wet all foliage. Postemergence (annual and perennial weeds) applications: Application is limited to 2 applications per year. Use a maximum of 2.0 Ibs ae 2,4-D or 6.5 pints of Quali-Pro 3-D per acre per application. Wait a minimum of 30 days between applications.
For control of woody plants, apply to both stems and foliage any time from the time foliage is completely matured until the time plants start to go dormant. All leaves, stems, and suckers must be completely wet to the ground line for effective control. Regrowth may be anticipated on the more resistant species. Add 6.0 to 13.0 pints of Quali-Pro 3-D to 100 gallons of water applying 200 to 600 gallons of spray mixture per 43,500 square feet depending upon the height and thickness of the brush. Mix thoroughly before spraying. Postemergence applications (woody plants): Limited to 1 application per year. Use a maximum of 13.0 pints Quali-Pro 3-D (4.0 Ibs ae 2,4-D) per acre per year. Applications to non-cropland areas are not applicable to treatment of commercial timber or other plants being grown for sale or other commercial use or for commercial seed production or for research purposes.
Use Precautions: Do not apply this product to St. Augustinegrass unless it is in the dormant stage. Care should be taken to avoid over-dosing bentgrass, as injury may result. Some hybrid bermudagrass may be sensitive to this product. Contact your local Extension Service Weed Control Specialist for sensitive grasses in your area. Large volumes of spray water (i.e., one fluid ounce in 5 gallons water per 1500 square feet) will aid in obtaining uniform coverage. If hand-type sprayers are used, it is preferable to use a single nozzle sprayer rather than a multiple nozzle boom as sideways application with a boom where the spray from more than one nozzle is allowed to fall on the same area will result in heavy local over-application and subsequent turf discoloration or injury.
What is the correct mix rate of 3-D Herbicide in a 2 gallon sprayer?
