NOTE: Weed control with Boa is crop, weed and rate specific, and different additives or surfactants will be required depending on the crop and tank mix partner. Please read the product label or provincial crop protection guides for specific recommendations.
(1) See label or provincial crop protection guides for weed specific application rates and timing.
(2) For perennial weeds, repeat application of Boa 7 to 15 days after first if needed.
(3) Includes triazine-resistant biotypes
(5) Treat before it is dark green and has begun to trail
(6) Will defoliate 4 leaf and larger but regrowth may occur

SUPPORTED TANK MIXES*
- Quiz®, Pinnacle® (soybeans only), Reflex® (dry beans only)
- Store in heated storage. If product is frozen, warm to room temperature and agitate before use.
GRAZING AND HARVEST
- Do not grazed treated fields or cut treated forage for silage or hay. There is no data to support this use.
- Fill spray tank 1/2 full of water, start sprayer agitation and throughout mixing and application process.
- If required add correct amount of nitrogen source (soybeans only).
- If required add the correct amount of Pinnacle (1) (soybeans only) or Reflex (dry common beans only).
- If required add the correct amount of other tank mix partners.
- Add the required amount of Boa.
- Add the required amount of surfactant.
- Add remainder of water and apply.
(1) On repeat tank loads, prepare a Pinnacle/water slurry in a separate container with clean water before adding to spray tank.
- Thorough coverage is critical, use a minimum of 10 gallons/acre of water
- Optimal control occurs when applied between 12°C and 24° C in warm moist growing conditions when weeds are actively growing.
- Temperatures below 5° C will prevent optimum herbicide performance.
- Avoid spraying under temps >29°C, drought or adverse growing conditions.
- Poor results can be expected if weeds are past the 4 leaf stage, poor spray coverage is poor, or a lower than recommended rate is used. Drought, crop stress, and cold or hot temperatures will also negatively affect performance as weeds are not actively growing.
- Do not apply Boa to crops that have been subjected to stress from conditions such as hail damage, flooding, drought, hot, humid weather, widely fluctuating temperature conditions, prolonged cold conditions or injury from prior herbicide applications as poor results and/or crop damage may result.
- Occasionally transient crop yellowing, speckling or bronzing may be observed after application, but this is temporary and will be outgrown and should not affect yield.
