MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Fill spray tank 3/4 full of water, start sprayer agitation and continue throughout mixing and spraying process.
  2. Add the required of amount of Samurai® and agitate until dissolved.
  3. Add the required amount of Boa.
  4. Add required amount of grass tank mix partner if desired.
  5. Add required amount of 28% UAN.
  6. Add the required amount of Assassin surfactant.
  7. Add the remaining amount of water and apply.
  8. If application is interrupted prior to completing application, re-suspend spray solution by agitating prior to resuming application
  9. Check in-line and nozzle screens between loads and clean if necessary.

UNDERSTANDING PERFORMANCE

  • Optimum control occurs when applied between 12°C and 24° C in warm moist growing conditions.
  • Thorough coverage is critical – use a minimum water volume of 10 gallons/acre.
  • Symptoms of control (discoloration at the growing point) will take between several hours and several days to be visible, depending on growing conditions. Control of weeds may take 3-4 weeks.
  • Do not spray Boa Pro if temperatures of 5 C or less are forecast within 3 days of application.
  • Drought, crop stress, and cold or hot temperatures will negatively affect performance as weeds are not actively growing.
  • Do not apply Boa Pro 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.
  • Occasionally transient crop yellowing 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.
