Reflex for common ragweed and waterhemp control
The exemption allows a single application of Reflex® at a rate of 0.75 to 1 pint of product per acre. The exemption expires Aug. 15, 2001. Applicators must follow all instructions, precautions and warnings on the product label and have a copy of the exemption label in their possession during application. Producers must observe a 30-day pre-harvest interval. Because the active ingredient in Reflex® is toxic to birds and mammals, no application may be made where run-off into aquatic habitats is likely. No livestock may be grazed in treated fields. Reflex® is manufactured by Zeneca Ag Products.
Applicators must follow all instructions, precautions and warnings on the product label and have a copy of the Section 18 label in their possession during application.
