Fusilade DX Herbicide is a highly effective herbicide that controls annual and perennial grass weeds. Contains an active ingredient that provides post-emergent control of unwanted weeds in broad spectrum crops, non-crop areas, fallow land, and non-bearing crops. It can be tank mixed with other herbicides and works well in tillage situations. The Syngenta Fusilade DX is a systemic herbicide that controls annual and perennial weeds such as bentgrass, crabgrass, johnsongrass, goosegrass, foxtail, wild oats, downy brome, ryegrass, corn, sandbur, and wild cane. It is proven to eliminate grass weeds soon after the application. The treated grass becomes yellow or red and eventually dies. It usually happens within a week after treatment, depending on environmental conditions. Offer rainfastness of one hour after the application. Available in a one-gallon jug.
Tank Mix Requirement: Fusilade DX Herbicide may be tank mixed with other pesticides. Refer to the specific crop sections on this label for tank mixing directions. It is the pesticide user’s responsibility to ensure that all products are registered for the intended use. Read and follow the applicable restrictions and limitations and directions for use on all product labels involved in tank mixing. Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture.
TIMING – Best control of susceptible grasses is obtained when Fusilade DX Herbicide is applied to actively growing grasses before they exceed the listed growth stages shown on this label. Refer to the grass weed tables for specific directions on weed growth stages.
SPRAY ADDITIVES – Only spray additives cleared for use on growing crops under 40 CFR 180.1001 may be used in spray mixture.
Always add one of the following:
Crop Oil Concentrate – Add a non-phytotoxic crop oil concentrate or a once-refined vegetable oil concentrate containing 15-20% approved emulsifier, at 0.5-1% v/v (0.5-1 gal/100 gal) in the finished spray volume for ground applications. For aerial applications, add 1 pt of crop oil concentrate per acre
Nonionic Surfactant – Add nonionic surfactant containing at least 75% surface-active agent, at 0.25-0.5% v/v (1-2 qt/100 gal) in the finished spray volume for ground application. For aerial application, add 1 pt of surfactant per acre.
Other Adjuvants – Adjuvants other than COC or NIS may be used providing the product meets the following criteria:
Contains only EPA exempt ingredients.
Is nonphytotoxic to the target crop.
Is compatible in the mixture. (May be established through a jar test).
Is supported locally for use with Fusilade DX Herbicide on the target crop through proven field trials and through university and extension guidance.
Always refer to the product label and follow directions concerning rates, target crops, environmental effect such as drought or weed stress, and use in a tank mix with other labeled pesticides.
In addition to crop oil concentrate or nonionic surfactant, liquid nitrogen fertilizer (28% or similar) can be added to the spray mixture in soybeans only. This 28% liquid nitrogen fertilizer is water soluble and can be used at a rate of one gallon per acre. Liquid nitrogen fertilizers cannot be used as a substitute for crop oil concentrate or nonionic surfactant in the spray mixture.
Diammonium phosphate (aqueous ammonium polyphosphate) commonly sold as a solution (10-34-0) can be added to the spray mixture. This water-soluble material can be used at a rate of 2 pt/A. Diammonium phosphate cannot be used as a substitute for crop oil concentrate or nonionic surfactant in the spray mixture.
Do not apply to grasses which are stressed due to moisture, temperature, low soil fertility, mechanical or chemical injury.
Do not apply to grasses which have tillered, formed seed heads, or exceeded listed growth stages.
Do not apply Fusilade DX Herbicide if rainfall is expected within 1 hour.
Do not plant rotational grass crops such as corn, sorghum, and cereals within 60 days of last application of Fusilade DX Herbicide or crop injury may occur.
Do not plant rotational crops not listed on the label within 30 days after the last application of Fusilade DX Herbicide or illegal residues may occur.
Avoid drift to all other crops and non-target areas. Grass crops are highly susceptible to Fusilade DX Herbicide.
