Liberty 280 SL Herbicide
- MIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE1. Start with properly calibrated and clean equipment.2. Fill the spray tank half full with water.3. Start agitation.4. If mixing with a flowable/wettable powder tank mix partner. Prepare a slurry of the proper amount of the product in a small amount of water. Add the slurry to the spray tank.5. Add ammonium sulfate (AMS) to the spray tank if needed.6. If mixing with a liquid tank mix partner, add the liquid mix partner next.7. Complete filling the spray tank with water before adding LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE, as foaming may occur.8. Add LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE when tank is full and continue agitation.9. If foaming occurs, use a silicone-based antifoam agent.Ensure that all spray system lines including pipes, booms, etc. have the correct concentration of spray solution by flushing out the spray system lines before starting the crop application.If tank mix partners recommended on this label are added, maintain good agitation at all times until contents of the tank are sprayed. If the spray mixture is allowed to settle, thorough agitation is required to re-suspend the mixture before spraying is resumed. Keep bypass line on or near bottom of tank to minimize foaming. Screen size in nozzles or line strainers must be 50 mesh or larger.APPLICATION AND MIXING RESTRICTIONS- DO NOT apply when winds are gusty, or when conditions will favor movement of spray particles off the desired spray target. See the Spray Drift Management section of this label for additional information on proper application of LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE.- Do not use flood jet nozzles, controlled droplet application equipment, or air-assisted spray equipment.

- COMPATIBILITY TESTINGIf LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE is to be mixed with pesticide products not listed on this label, test the compatibility of the intended tank mixture prior to mixing the products in the spray tank. The following procedure assumes a spray volume of 25 gallons per acre. For other spray volumes, adjust the amount of the water used accordingly. Check compatibility as follows:1. Place 1.0 pint of water from the source that will be used to prepare the spray solution in a clear 1-quart jar.2. For each pound of a dry tank mix partner to be applied per acre, add 1.5 teaspoons to the jar.3. For each 16 fl oz of a liquid tank mix partner to be applied per acre, add 0.5 teaspoon to the jar.4. For each 16 fl oz of LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE to be applied per acre, add 0.5 teaspoon to the jar.5. After adding all the ingredients, place a lid on the jar and tighten. Invert 10 times to mix.6. Let the mixture stand for 15 minutes, and evaluate the solution for uniformity and stability. Look for separation, large flakes, precipitates, gels, heavy oily film on the jar, or other signs of incompatibility. If the tank mix partners are not compatible, do not use the mixture in a spray tank.7. After compatibility testing is complete, dispose of any pesticide wastes in accordance with the Storage and Disposal section of this label.MIXING INSTRUCTIONSTank Mix Instructions: LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE may be applied in tank mix combinations with labeled rates of other products provided these other products are labeled for the timing and method of application for the crop to be treated. The tank mix partner must be used in accordance with the label limitations and precautions.No label dosage rates may be exceeded. LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing. Refer to the specific crop section for rates and other restrictions.LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE is formulated to mix readily in water. Prior to adding LIBERTY 280 SL HERBICIDE to the spray tank, ensure that the spray tank is thoroughly clean, particularly if a herbicide with the potential to injure crops was previously used (see Cleaning Instructions). It is the pesticide users 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.
