NOTES:

NOTE: Weed control with Boa IQ is crop, weed and rate specific, and different additives or surfactants will be required depending on the crop and tank mix partner. Please contact AgraCity or review the Boa or Quiz products label for crop specific recommendations.
(1) Weeds must be small and actively growing to be controlled. See Boa label or provincial crop protection guides for weed specific application rates and timing.
(2) For improved control of perennial weeds, apply Boa alone 7 to 15 days after application of Boa IQ if needed.
(3) Includes triazine-resistant biotypes
(4) Suppression only
(5) Treat before it is dark green and has begun to trail
(6) Will defoliate 4 leaf and larger but regrowth may occur
(7) Only provides control when weeds are < 8 leaf stage
(8) Apply when grass weeds are 2 leaf to early tillering unless otherwise indicated.
(9) Group 1 resistant biotypes will not be controlled.
(10) Spring seedlings only.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Fill spray tank 1/2 full of water, start sprayer agitation and throughout mixing and application process.
  2. If required, add correct amount of nitrogen source. (soybeans and dry beans only).
  3. Add the required amount of Boa.
  4. Add the required amount of Quiz™.
  5. Add the required amount of surfactant.
  6. Add remainder of water and apply.

UNDERSTANDING PERFORMANCE

  1. Thorough coverage is critical, use a minimum of 10 gallons/acre of water.
  2. Optimal control occurs when applied between 12°C and 24° C in warm moist growing conditions when weeds are actively growing.
  3. Temperatures below 5° C will prevent optimum herbicide performance.
  4. Poor results on broadleaf weeds can be expected if weeds are past the 4 leaf stage or if spray coverage and/or crop competition is poor.
  5. Drought, crop stress, and cold or hot temperatures will negatively affect performance as weeds are not actively growing.
  6. Do not apply Boa IQ to crops that have been subjected to stress from conditions such as hail damage, flooding, drought, hot, humid weather, widely fluctuating temperature conditions, prolonged cold conditions or injury from prior herbicide applications as poor results and/or crop damage may result.
  7. Avoid spraying under temps >29°C, or during drought or adverse growing conditions.
  8. Occasionally transient crop yellowing, speckling or bronzing may be observed after application, but this is temporary and will be outgrown and should not affect yield.
Always read and observe all label directions including rates, restrictions, and grazing and harvest limitations.
*Supported by AgraCity under PMRA tank mix guidelines. When applying tank mix combinations, read and observe all label directions for each product used in the tank mix, and follow the more stringent label precautionary measures for mixing, loading and applying stated on both product labels.
