Trust 4EC Herbicide is a preemergence formula that provides long-lasting control and suppression of small-seeded broadleaf weeds and annual grasses in soybeans, wheat, cotton and vegetable crops. This formulation contains 43% Trifluralin which is effective in controlling unwanted weeds such as bromegrass, barnyardgrass, carpetweed, crabgrass, common lambsquarters, foxtail, pigweed (redroot, smooth), sandbur, shattercane, woolly cupgrass, and more. Generally, it is incorporated into the soil before planting, and can be combined with liquid fertilizer or can be coated to dry fertilizers. It comes in a liquid emulsifiable concentrate formulation which can be mixed readily with water. It can also be tank-mixed with a wide range of herbicides for a broader spectrum of control and long-lasting protection against weeds. Available in a 2.5-gallon jug.

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.
Vigorous, continuous agitation during mixing, filling and throughout application is required for all tank mixes. Sparger pipe agitators generally provide the most effective agitation in spray tanks. To prevent foaming in the spray tank, avoid stirring or splashing air into the spray mixture. To prevent foaming during filling, keep the end of fill pipe below the surface of the liquid in the spray tank.
Mixing Order: Fill the spray tank to 1/4 to 1/3 of the total spray volume required. Start agitation. Add different formulation types in the order indicated below, allowing time for complete mixing and dispersion after addition of each product. Allow extra mixing and dispersion time for dry flowable products.
Add different formulation types in the following order: Dry Flowables (DF); Wettable Powders (WP); Aqueous Suspensions (AS); Flowables (F); and Liquids (L).
Maintain agitation and fill spray tank to 3/4 of total spray volume. Add this product and other emulsifiable concentrates (EC) and any solutions (S).
Finish filing the spray tank. Maintain continuous agitation during mixing, final filling and throughout application. If spraying and agitation must be stopped before the spray tank is empty, the materials may settle to the bottom. Settled materials must be resuspended before spraying is resumed. A sparger agitator is particulariy useful for this purpose. Settled material may be more difficult to resuspend than when originally mixed.
Restriction: Do not allow water or spray mixture to back siphon into a water source.
Pre-mixing: Dry and flowable formulations may be pre-mixed with water (slurried) and added to the spray tank through a 20 to 35 mesh screen. This procedure assures good initial dispersion of these products in liquid fertilizer or water. Line screen in the spray tank should be no finer than 50 mesh (100 mesh is finer than 50 mesh).
As spray volume decreases. the importance of accurate calibration and uniform application increases. Check calibration and uniformity of spray application daily. To avoid spray drift, do not apply when winds are gusting or when wind speed is greater than 15 mph.
Ground Broadcast Application:
Apply this product in 5 to 40 gallons of liquid carrier per acre (broadcast basis), using any properly calibrated, low pressure herbicide sprayer that will apply the spray uniformly. The carrier may be water or liquid fertilizer as specified for the crop to be treated in the ·CROPS" section of this label. For band application, adjust herbicide rate and spray volume in proportion to the band width and row width treated.
Aerial Broadcast Application:
Apply this product in 5 to 10 gallons of water per acre. Adjust pump pressure, nozzle arrangements, speed and application height to provide uniform application to the soil surface. Use swath markers or flaggers to assure proper swath width interval.

Crop cover may prevent uniform soil coverage from over-the-top sprays. To avoid this problem, use drop nozzles or directed sprays to achieve uniform soil coverage.
This pesticide is extremely toxic to freshwater marine, and estuarine fish and aquatic invertebrates including shrimp and oysters. Do not apply in a manner which will directly expose canals, lakes, streams, ponds, marshes or estuaries to aerial drift. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwaters. Do not apply directly to water or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark.
Can Trust 4EC Herbicide be used on sunflowers and pumpkins?
The Trust 4EC Herbicide label does not list pumpkins on the label so we are unsure if it would be safe to apply around them or prior to planting them. It does, however, list Sunflowers as a species that you can safely apply to the areas intended for them to grow, prior to planting. You can see the full use instructions around Sunflowers on page 47 of the Trust 4EC Product Label.
