Degree Xtra Herbicide (Bayer)
- 8.0 MIXING, SPRAYING AND HANDLINGINSTRUCTIONSNOTE: Direct contact or exposure to this product or spray mixtures of this product should be minimized. The following instructions for transfer, mixing, cleaning or repairing equipment should be followed in order to minimize this exposure. Review the protective clothing requirements as listed in the PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS section of this label and do not use this product until you have the necessary protective clothing. 2.5 Gallon Containers Open pouring from these containers can result in exposure from splashing or spilling. Special care in lifting and pouring is strongly recommended.Bulk ContainersOpen pouring from these containers can result in exposure from splashing or spilling and is not recommended. This product should be transferred from these containers to the mix or spray tank using pumps or transfer probes. The probe or pump should not be removed from the container or disconnected until the container is emptied or rinsed. Use the pump or probe system to rinse the empty container and transfer the rinsate directly to the mix or spray tank.8.1 Equipment Cleaning and RepairCleaning and repair of transfer systems and application equipment is a source of exposure to this product. Care should be taken to minimize exposure during cleaning and repair to transfer systems application equipment. Whenever possible, these systems or equipment should be rinsed before being cleaned or repaired.When repairs must be made during transfer or application, the equipment should be shut down, and special care taken to avoid contact with the pesticide.
- 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, shoes plus socks and chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material.
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)Some materials that are chemical-resistant to this product are listed below. If you want more options, follow the instructions for category A on an EPA chemical-resistance category selection chart.Mixers, loaders, applicators, and other handlers must wear: long-sleeved shirt and long pants, chemical-resistant gloves such as polyethylene or polyvinylchloride, shoes plus socks, chemical-resistant apron when mixing/loading, cleaning up spills, or cleaning equipment, or otherwise exposed to the concentrate. See Engineering Controls for additional requirements. Engineering Controls: When applicators use enclosed cabs in a manner that meets the requirements listed in the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) for agricultural pesticides [40 CFR 170.240 (d) (5)], the handler PPE requirements may be reduced or modified as specified in the WPS.Follow manufacturer's instructions for cleaning/maintaining PPE. If no such instructions for washables exist, use detergent and hot water. Keep and wash PPE separately from other laundry. Discard clothing or otherabsorbent materials that have been drenched or heavily contaminated with the product's concentrate. Do not reuse them.
- 8.2 Sprayer CompatibilityAlways predetermine the compatibility of this product or labeled mixtures of this product with water carrier or sprayable fluid fertilizer carrier by mixing small proportional quantities in advance. See the STANDARD SPRAYABLE FLUID FERTILIZER COMPATIBILITY TEST section in this label to determine the compatibility of this product and the labeled tank mixtures specified for use with sprayable fluid fertilizer carrier.Mix this product or labeled tank mixtures of this product with the appropriate carrier as follows:1. Place a 20- to 35-mesh screen or wetting basket over filling port.2. Through the screen, fill the sprayer tank one-half full with appropriate carrier.3. If a compatibility agent is necessary to improve mixing or to prevent the formation of undesirable and unsprayable gels or precipitates, while agitating add it to the carrier already in the tank. Use only compatibility agents cleared by FDA for this use. Read and follow all directions for use, cautionarystatements and all other information appearing on the selected compatibility agent label. Check for adequate agitation.4. If a wettable powder or dry flowable formulation is used, make a slurry with water, and add it slowly through the screen into the tank. Continue agitation. 5. If a flowable formulation is used, add slowly through screen into the tank.Mixing and compatibility may be improved when flowable is premixed one part flowable with one part water and added slowly to the tank in diluted form.6. Add this product slowly through the screen into the tank. Mixing and compatibility may be improved when this product is prediluted with two parts of water and added to the tank in diluted form.7. Complete filling the sprayer tank with carrier. If a Roundup(R) agricultural herbicide or GramoxoneTM brand herbicide is used, add the required amount near the end of the filling process. Remove hose from tank immediately after filling to avoid siphoning back into the water source.Maintain good agitation at all times until the contents of the tank are sprayed.NOTE: If spray mixture is allowed to settle at any time, thorough agitation is required to resuspend the mixture before spraying is resumed. Keep bypass line on or near bottom of tank to minimize foaming. Screen size in nozzle or line strainers should be no finer than 50-mesh. Carefully select proper nozzle to avoid spraying a fine mist. Check for even distribution of spray droplets. For best results with ground application, use flat-fan or whirl-chamber nozzle. To reduce loss of chemical due to drift of a fine mist, apply at pressures less than 40 psi.
