**Initial injury to non-Clearfield canola may be observed.
†Sunflower varieties with the Clearfield trait.
- Fill the spray tank 1/2 full of water, start sprayer agitation and continue throughout mixing and application process.
- Add the required amount of Samurai and agitate until dissolved.
- If required, add correct amount of tank mix partners.
- Add the required amount of surfactant.
- Fill the remainder of the tank with water and apply.
- If application is stopped prior to completion, re-suspend spray solution by full agitation prior to commencing spraying again.
- Optimal control occurs when applied between 12°C and 24°C during warm moist growing conditions when weeds are small and actively growing.
- Typical symptoms (discoloration at the growing point) may not be noticeable for several days – 2 weeks depending on growing conditions. Control of weeds may take 3-4 weeks.
- Early application is critical; weeds must be emerged but less than 4 leaf stage for optimum control.
- Use higher water volumes for dense weed populations and thick crop canopies.
- Do not apply if temperatures of +5°C or lower are forecast within 3 days of application. Application just before or after cold temperatures can result in crop injury or yellowing.
- Control will be reduced, or crop injury may occur if plants are stressed by lack of moisture, excessive moisture, poor fertility, cold temperatures or other crop stress factors.
- Samurai can be persistent in soil. Drought, extremes in soil pH and excessive cold may result in an increased potential for injury to succeeding crops.
