For asparagus, cereals, corn, grasses, hay, rice, sorghum, soybeans (preplant), sugarcane, fallow land, pasture, rangeland, turf, and noncropland for control of annual mustard, Canada thistle, dandelion, lambsquarters, ragweed, etc. Many broadleaf crops (cotton, grapevines) are extremely sensitive.
Emulsion (esters), aqueous solution (salts), emulsifiable concentrate, wettable granule, wettable powder. The amine salts are: dimethylamine (DMA), diethanolamine (DEA), isopropylamine (IPA), triisopropanolamine (TIPA), etc. As with amines which form salts with the 2,4-D acid, esters are made with a wide variety of alcohols.
White powder. Melting point 140.5°C. Vapor pressure < 10-7 mbar. Acid not used customarily by itself; usually as an amine, salt, or ester. Only slightly soluble in petroleum distillate. Soluble in alcohols. Esters are soluble in oils.
Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by product storage or disposal. Do not store near food, feed, fertilizers, seeds, insecticides, or fungicides. Do not use spray equipment contaminated with this product for any other purposes unless thoroughly cleaned with a suitable cleaner. The greatest danger to susceptible crops is spray drift and volatilization. Highly volatile esters may result in vapor damage to such crops, while low volatile esters such as butoxyethyl and isooctyl esters are less likely to cause damage, and salt formations are essentially non-volatile. Do not apply where irrigation water may be contaminated. Store in closed, original container in secure, dry, temperate area. Avoid contact with water.
Large spillages should be dammed-off and pumped into containers; soak up remainder with absorbent material; dispose of in accordance with local regulations
Disposed of by special means (suitable incineration, etc.) in accordance with local regulations
