WinField Basagran Herbicide is a postemergence formula that provides broad-spectrum control of broadleaf weeds and yellow nutsedge in corn, soybeans, peas, peppermint, and a wide variety of crops. It contains 44% Bentazon which is effective against nuisance weeds such as beggarticks, bindweed, buckwheat, cocklebur, galinsoga, groundsel, Jimsonweed, lambsquarters, morningglory, nutsedge, purslane, ragweed, shepherdspurse, velvetleaf, and more. It works excellently through contact action so it is advised to spray and thoroughly cover actively growing weeds. Product can be combined with other post-emergent herbicides for a broader spectrum of control and long-lasting protection against weeds. Available in a 2.5-gal jug.
Basagran is effective mainly through contact action; therefore, weeds must be thoroughly covered with spray.
All labeled crops are tolerant to Basagran. Leaf speckling or bronzing may occur, but plants generally outgrow this condition within 10 days. New growth is normal and crop vigor is not reduced.
Applications can be made to actively growing weeds as broadcast, band, or spot spray applications at the rates and growth stages listed in the weed tables. The most effective control will result from making postemergence applications of Basagran early, when weeds are small. Early application produces the most beneficial effect on weed control (exceptions: yellow 5 nutsedge and Canada thistle), allows use of the lower rate (depending on weed species), and makes thorough spray coverage easier to obtain. Delaying application permits weeds to exceed the maximum size stated and will prevent adequate control. DO NOT apply when conditions favor drift from target area or when windspeed is greater than 10 mph.
Apply recommended rates of Basagran to actively growing weeds before they reach the maximum sizes listed in Table 1. Application Rates for Specific Weed Growth Stages For All Crops Except Rice. For the recommended use rates of Basagran in rice, refer to Table 3. Application Rates for Rice - Flooded Fields and Table 4. Application Rates for Rice - Drained Fields in Crop-Specific Information.
Ground Application Methods and Equipment (Broadcast)
Water Volume: Use 10 to 20 gallons of spray solution per broadcast acre for optimal performance.
Spray Pressure: Use a minimum of 40 psi (measured at the boom, not at the pump or in the line).
Note: When using the lower volume (i.e. 10 gallons per acre) or when crop and weed foliage is dense, use a minimum of 60 psi for best results.
Application Equipment: Use standard high-pressure pesticide flat fan or hollow cone nozzles spaced up to 20 inches apart. DO NOT use flood, whirl chamber, or controlled droplet applicator (CDA) nozzles as erratic coverage can cause inconsistent weed control. DO NOT use selective application equipment such as recirculating sprayers or wiper applicators. Good coverage is essential for maximum control.
SEE LABEL FOR COMPLETE RATES AND INSTRUCTIONS.
For terrestrial uses, DO NOT apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark.
DO NOT contaminate water when disposing of equipment wash waters or rinsate.
Bentazon, which is present in this product, is known to leach through soil into groundwater under certain conditions as a result of agricultural use. Use of this chemical in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow, may result in groundwater contamination.
Notice: It is a violation of federal law to use any pesticide in a manner that results in the death of an endangered species or in adverse modification of their habitat.
