Use and Mixing

The instructions for use and mixing described below are from the Environmental Protection Agency approved Federal Label. Always read and follow label instructions. Not all products are registered for use in every state. Please check with Bayer or your local Lead State Agency for product registration status. If you wish to find out if a product is registered in your state or for additional product information, send us an email or call 1-866-99-BAYER.
      Spray Preparation Add 1/2 to 3/4 of the required amount of water to the spray tank. Start agitation. Add the required amount of FINISH(R) 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton, and the remaining amount of water. Mix only as much spray solution as can be used on the day of application. Storage and use of previous day's spray mix may result in equipment corrosion and reduced activity. Do not spill the concentrated product on spray equipment, or any airplane parts. ANY SPILLS SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY RINSED WITH PLENTY OF WATER AS FINISH(R)6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton IS CORROSIVE. Use of a nurse tank is highly recommended for avoiding possible spills of concentrated formulation on spray equipment.
      Reentry PPE
      PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves contact with anything that has been treated such as plants, soil or water is coveralls over long-sleeved shirt and long pants, socks and chemical resistant footwear, goggles or face shield, and chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material, such as polyvinyl chloride, nitrile rubber, or butyl rubber.\r\nNotify workers of the application by warning them orally and posting warning signs at entrances to treated areas.
      PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) Some materials that are chemical-resistant to this product are listed below. Applicators and other handlers must wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, shoes plus socks and goggles or face shield and chemical resistant gloves made out of any waterproof material (barrier laminate, butyl rubber >= 14 mils, nitrile rubber >= 14 mils, neoprene rubber >= 14 mils, natural rubber >= 14 mils, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride >= 14 mils, or viton >= 14 mils). Discard clothing and other absorbent materials that have been drenched or heavily contaminated with this products concentrate. Do not reuse them. Follow manufacturer's instructions for cleaning/maintaining PPE. If no such instructions for washables, use detergent and hot water. Keep and wash PPE separately from other laundry. When handlers use closed systems, enclosed cabs, or aircraft in a manner that meets the requirements listed in the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) for agricultural pesticides [40 CFR 170.240 (d)(4-6)], the handler PPE requirements may be reduced or modified as specified in the WPS.
      Tankmix Compatibility
      Tank Mixtures With Other Products FINISH(R) 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton may be applied as a tank mix or in sequential application with other harvest aid and insecticide products. In some cases, crop conditions, such as rank growth, weed or insect infestations, drought, unutilized nitrogen, low temperature, high moisture, and heavy juvenile growth will require the inclusion of other products for satisfactory defoliation and terminal regrowth suppression. FINISH(R) 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton can be tank mixed or sequentially applied with other products such as DEF(R) 6, FOLEX(R) 6EC, DROPP(R) 50WP, HARVADE(R) 5F, GINSTAR(R), DROPP(R) ULTRA(TM), ROUNDUP(R), METHYL PARATHION 4E or 4 lb, GUTHION(R) 2L or 3 and MALATHION(TM) 57EC for use on cotton in accordance with the most restrictive of the label limitations and precautions. No label dosage rates should be exceeded. Proper mixing sequences should be followed when making a tank mix. This product cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing. Follow all applicable use precautions and rate per acre recommendations on labels of products applied as tank mixtures or in sequence with FINISH(R) 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton. In some cases, slight reduction in boll opening response has been observed when tank mixes with phosphate defoliants were used. FINISH(R) 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton tank mixes with DROPP(R) or DROPP(R) ULTRA(TM) on picker cotton and GINSTAR(R) on stripper cotton will enhance regrowth suppression and removal of juvenile foliage. Under some conditions such as high temperatures or low soil moisture, tank mixtures with products such as FOLEX(R), DEF(R), DROPP(R) ULTRA(TM), GINSTAR(R) and METHYL PARATHION may result in leaf stick or leaf burn due to increased desiccation activity. To minimize leaf stick and leaf burn occurrence under these conditions, it is important to follow local recommendations and use the lower labeled rate of the tank mix partner product(s). Do not tank mix FINISH(R) 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton with a desiccant if the cotton is to be spindle harvested. Good agitation in the spray tank is essential. A tank mixture should not be allowed to stand without agitation for more than 5 to 10 minutes. Read and observe all appropriate label use directions and precautions for the defoliants used. To improve mixing and coverage, it is recommended that FINISH 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton and tank mixtures of FINISH(R) 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton be mixed with adjuvants and/or compatibility agents which are cleared for application on cotton. FINISH(R) 6 Pro Harvest Aid for Cotton should be added to the tank prior to the addition of an adjuvant. Read and observe all appropriate label use directions and precautions for the adjuvant used. NOTE: UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, TANK MIXTURES OF FINISH(R) 6 PRO HARVEST AID FOR COTTON WITH DESICCANTS CONTAINING SODIUM CHLORATE COULD RESULT IN THE FORMATION OF A HYPOCHLOROUS ACID WHICH ON HEATING WILL EMIT TOXIC CHLORIDE FUMES. DO NOT MIX FINISH(R) 6 PRO HARVEST AID FOR COTTON WITH AMMONIUM THIOSULFATE. SUCH TANK MIXTURES MAY RESULT IN FORMATION OF TOXIC FUMES.
