Description:

Nature’s Wisdom 20% Vinegar is a quick-acting, non-selective contact herbicide containing an organic acid for which the resi-dues degrade promptly in the soil. Foliar contact results in rapid desiccation and control of annual weeds and grasses, and top growth reduction of herbaceous perennial weeds and grasses (see below). Nature’s Wisdom 20% Vinegar may be applied up to two days before harvest.

EARLY SEASON ANNUAL WEED CONTROL:

Apply this product when weeds are small (3 to 5 leaf stage) and actively growing. Spray this product on unwanted weeds (vegetation) to the point of wetness.

FOR SPOT TREATMENT APPLICATION:

Direct spray with a single nozzle or a hand-gun applicator to thoroughly wet undesirable weed foliage. Re-treatment of perennial weed growth may be required for control.


FOR BROADCAST SPRAY APPLICATIONS:

For broadcast spray application to control weeds. Application types include pre-plant (prior to crop establishment), preharvest desiccation (to kill crop foliage prior to harvesting the crop) postharvest crop desiccation (remaining crop residues after crop has been harvested). Use 15 to 30 gallons of this product per acre. Thorough coverage is necessary to achieve desir­able control. For dense weed populations and/or heavy foliage, use the higher spray volume to ensure adequate coverage. Apply with flat fan nozzles and at sufficient pressure to achieve required coverage, but do not exceed a pressure 35 PSI. When applying this product in a broadcast application within a growing crop, utilize a hooded sprayer, shielded, or other spray equipment that prevents the movement of spray away from the target. For pre-plant burndown of young vegetation, use of wide angle nozzles (110 degrees or wider) spaced close together enable the boom to be positioned lower and closer to the spray target, reducing the potential for drift.


POST- DIRECTED:

(Row middles, shielded sprayer or hooded sprayer): For spray applica­tion to control weeds, apply 15 to 30 gallons of this product per acre. Thorough coverage is necessary to achieve desirable control. For dense and/or heavy weed populations, use the
higher spray volume to ensure adequate coverage. Apply with flat fan nozzles and at the lowest pressure needed to achieve required coverage, but do not exceed 35 PSI. If treating along the side of crop plants, shielded or hooded sprayers must be used to avoid crop injury.


SPRAY EQUIPMENT:

Do not apply this product by aerial application.

Do not apply when wind conditions favor movement of spray away from the site of application.

When applying this product in a broadcast application utilize a hooded sprayer, shielded, or other spray equipment that prevents the movement of spray away from the target.

Utilize nozzles that are designed to produce large spray droplets to reduce drift.

Spray nozzles need to be plastic or 316 stainless steel as this product will eventually corrode any other metal.


FOR CONTROL OF LARGER ANNUALS AND BURNDOWN OF PERENNIAL WEED GROWTH:

Larger annual weeds and perennials are more difficult to control and may require retreatment. Treat initially as recommended above and repeat if new growth of leaves appears. Thorough coverage of all weed foliage is necessary to achieve desirable control. To reduce the amount of product required to control well-established weed stands, mow to a height of 4-6 inches and remove cut vegetation before applying this product.


TIMING OF APPLICATIONS:

Best results are achieved from applications to actively growing young weeds. Weeds that are mature, dormant, or hardened due to moisture stress are more tolerant of herbicide treatments. For best results spray in full sunshine at tempera­tures above 65°F. Only contacted vegetation will be affected.

Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

Note: all contacted vegetation will be affected. do not allow this product to come in contact with desirable plants. overspray or drift will injure or kill contacted vegetation including any crop plants.
