SFM Extra Herbicide for use in conifer plantations and non-crop sites for control of many annual and perennial grasses and broadleaf weeds. For general weed control on terrestrial non-crop sites, certain woody plants, vines and herbaceous weeds.
SFM Extra may be applied to non-crop sites and conifer plantations that contain areas of temporary surface water caused by collection of water between planting beds, in equipment ruts, or in other depressions created by management activities. Intermittently flooded low lying sites, seasonally dry flood plains, transitional areas between upland and lowland sites, marshes, swamps, bogs and seasonally dry flood deltas may be treated when no water is present. DO NOT make applications to natural or man-made bodies of water such as lakes, reservoirs, ponds, streams and canals.
Herbaceous weeds are controlled by both preemergence and postemergence activity with best results obtained when the application is made before or during the early stages of weed growth before weeds develop an established root system. For best results on undesirable hardwoods and vines, apply as a foliar spray between full leaf expansion in the spring and normal defoliation in the fall.
For preemergence control, moisture is required to move SFM Extra Herbicide into the root zone of weeds. For best postemergence results, apply Alligare SFM Extra to young, actively growing weeds. Weed species, size at application and soil texture determines the use rate specified, and the degree and duration of control may depend on the following:
• Weed size at time of application
• Weed infestation intensity and spectrum
• Environmental conditions at and following treatment
• Soil pH, soil moisture, and soil organic matter
