Use & Mixing
The instructions for use and mixing described below are from the Environmental Protection Agency approved Federal Label. Please click on 'Labels / MSDS' in the left hand navigation for special or state label instructions. Always read and follow label instructions.
XtendiMAX with VaporGrip Technology
- Mixing OrderOnly use approved tank mix products as directed on www.xtendimaxapplicationrequirements.com. Always read and follow label directions for all products in the tank mixture. It is the pesticide users' responsibility to ensure that all products in the listed mixtures are registered for the intended use. Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture. See section 8.0 for additional restrictions on tank mixing.1. Ensure application and mixing equipment are clean and in proper working order2. Water - Begin by agitating a thoroughly clean sprayer tank three-quarters full of clean water.3. Agitation - Maintain constant agitation throughout mixing and application.4. Drift Reducing Adjuvants (DRA)-(when applicable)5. Inductor - If an inductor is used, rinse it thoroughly after each component has been added.6. Products in PVA bags - Place any product contained in water-soluble PVA bags into the mixing tank. Wait until all water-soluble PVA bags have fully dissolved and the product is evenly mixed in the spray tank before continuing.7. Water-dispersible products (dry flowables, wettable powders, suspension concentrates, or suspo-emulsions)8. Water-soluble products (such as XtendiMax(R) With VaporGrip(R) Technology)9. Emulsifiable concentrates (such as oil concentrate when applicable)10. Water-soluble additives (when applicable)11. Add remaining quantity of water.Maintain constant agitation during application
- 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 worn over short-sleeved shirt and short pants- Chemical-resistant footwear plus socks- Waterproof gloves- Chemical-resistant headgear for overhead exposure- Protective eyewear
- PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)All mixers, loaders, applicators and other handlers must wear:- Long-sleeved shirt and long pants- Waterproof gloves- Shoes plus socksSee "Engineering Controls Statement" for additional requirements.Follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and maintaining PPE. If no such instructions for washables exist, use detergent and hot water. Keep and wash PPE separately from other laundry.
- TANK MIXING INSTRUCTIONSAuxin herbicides such as dicamba have the potential to volatilize in lower pH spray mixtures. Knowing the pH of your spray mixture and making the appropriate adjustments to avoid a low pH spray mixture (e.g., pH less than 5) can reduce the potential for volatilization to occur. Talk to your local agricultural consultant, extension agent, or Bayer representative for recommendations to prevent low pH spray mixtures.XtendiMax(R) With VaporGrip(R) Technology may only be tank-mixed with products that have been tested and found not to adversely affect the offsite movement potential of XtendiMax(R) With VaporGrip(R) Technology. The applicator must check the website found at www.xtendimaxapplicationrequirements.com no more than 7 days before applying XtendiMax(R) With VaporGrip(R) Technology.DO NOT tank mix any product with XtendiMax(R) With VaporGrip(R) Technology unless:1. The intended tank-mix product is identified on the list of tested products found at www.xtendimaxapplicationrequirements.com;2. The intended products are not prohibited on either this label or the label of the tank mix product; and3. All requirements and restrictions on www.xtendimaxapplicationrequirements.com are followed.Compatibility Test for Mix ComponentsBefore mixing components, always perform a compatibility jar test.- For 15 gallons per acre spray volume, use 2.5 cups (591.5 mL) of water. For other spray volumes, adjust rates accordingly. Only use water from the intended source at the source temperature.- Add components in the sequence indicated in the Mixing Order section below using 2 teaspoons for each pound or 1 teaspoon for each pint of labeled use rate per acre.- Cap the jar and invert 10 cycles between component additions.- When the components have all been added to the jar, let the solution stand for 15 minutes.- Evaluate the solution for uniformity and stability. The spray solution should not have free oil on the surface; fine particles that precipitate to the bottom; or thick (clabbered) texture. If the spray solution is not compatible, repeat the compatibility test with the addition of a suitable compatibility agent. If the solution is then compatible, use the compatibility agent as directed on its label. If the solution is still incompatible, then do not mix the ingredients in the same tank.
