GENERAL INFORMATION
Turf Use Instructions
Echelon 4SC Herbicide is a selective pre-emergence and post-emergence herbicide for control of crabgrass, annual grass and broadleaf
weeds and sedges in turf sites including residential and institutional
lawns, athletic fields, commercial sod farms, golf course fairways and
roughs, roadsides, utility right-of-ways, railways and industrial areas.
Echelon 4SC Herbicide is a flowable formulation (suspension concentrate) containing 4 lbs. of active ingredient per gallon. The mode of
action of Echelon 4SC herbicide involves uptake by both weed roots
and shoots of existing weeds and prevention of growth by newly
emerged weed seedlings.
MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
General Handling Instructions
This product may not be mixed or loaded within 50 feet of any wells (including abandoned wells and drainage wells), sink holes, perennial or intermittent streams and rivers, and natural or impounded lakes and reservoirs. This
setback does not apply to properly capped or plugged abandoned wells and
does not apply to impervious pad or properly contained mixing/loading
areas.
Operations that involve mixing, loading, rinsing or washing of this product
into or from pesticide handling or application equipment or containers within
50 feet of any well, are prohibited unless conducted on an impervious pad
constructed to withstand the weight of the heaviest load that may be positioned on or moved across the pad. Such a pad shall be designed and maintained to contain any product spills or equipment leaks, container or equipment rinse or wash water, and rainwater that may fall on the pad. Surface
water shall not be allowed to either flow over or from the pad, which means
the pad must be self contained. The pad shall be sloped to facilitate material removal. An unroofed pad shall be of sufficient capacity to contain at a
minimum 110% of the capacity of the largest pesticide container or application equipment on the pad. A pad that is covered by a roof of sufficient size
to completely exclude precipitation from contact with the pad shall have a
minimum containment capacity of 100% of the capacity of the largest pesticide container or application equipment on the pad. Containment capacities
as described above shall be maintained at all times. The above specific minimum containment capacities do not apply to vehicles when delivering pesticide shipments to the mixing/loading site. States may have in effect additional requirements regarding wellhead setbacks and operational containment.
Product must be used in a manner which will prevent back siphoning in
wells, spills or improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixtures or rinsates.
Spray Tank Preparation
It is important that spray equipment is clean and free of existing pesticide
deposits before using this product. Follow the spray tank clean out procedures specified on the label of product previously applied before adding
Echelon 4SC Herbicide to the tank.
Echelon 4SC Herbicide is a suspension concentrate intended for dilution
with water. In certain applications, liquid fertilizer may replace water as diluent.
Mixing With Water
For best results, fill spray tank with one fourth of the volume of clean water
needed for the area to be treated. Start the agitation system and add
Echelon 4SC Herbicide to the tank. Make sure Echelon 4SC Herbicide is
thoroughly mixed before application or before adding another product to the
spray tank.
Mixing With Liquid Fertilizers
The addition of a sprayable nitrogen fertilizer with a nitrogen Percentage
above 20% may increase herbicidal activity on certain weeds and decrease
turf tolerance on desirable turfgrass cultivars. Utilize local recommendations
for sources and rates of fertilizer and refer to mixing directions on the fertilizer labels (e.g. UAN or urea solutions). Determine the compatibility of this
product with the desired fluid fertilizer by mixing small proportional quantities
in advance (See the Tank Mixtures Compatibility section below).
Tank Mixtures Compatibility
Echelon 4SC Herbicide is believed to be compatible with most herbicides,
fungicides, insecticides, growth regulators, liquid fertilizers and spray adjuvants commonly used in turf and ornamental plant management. However,
when preparing a new tank mix conduct an appropriate compatibility test by
mixing proportional amounts of all spray ingredients in a test vessel (jar) prior
to tank mixing with other products. Shake the mixture vigorously and allow it
to stand for five to ten minutes. Rapid precipitation of the ingredients and
failure to re-suspend when shaken indicates that the mixture is incompatible
and should not be applied. Provided the jar test indicates the mixture to be
compatible, prepare the tank mixture as follows: Fill the tank one fourth full
with water. With the agitator operating, add the recommended amounts of
ingredients using the following order: dry granules first and liquid suspensions (flowable) second. As the agitation continues and the tank is filled with
water add EC products third followed by the addition of water soluble products.
Read and observe mixing instructions of all tank mix partners. Also read
each productʼs label for Directions for Use, Precautionary Statements and
Restrictions and Limitations. The most restrictive labeling applies in all tank
mixtures. No label dosage rate should be exceeded. Tank mixture recommendations are for use only in states where the companion products and
application site are registered. In addition, certain states or geographical
regions may have established dosage rate limitations. Consult your state
Pesticide Control Agency for additional information regarding the maximum
use rates.
Use Echelon 4SC Herbicide spray mixture immediately after mixing. Do not
allow spray solutions to stand or dry in the tank.
Ground Equipment
Power sprayers: Uniform and accurate spray coverage requires proper calibration and operation of spray equipment. The use of marker dyes or foams
can improve application accuracy. Boom sprayers equipped with appropriate
flat fan nozzles, tips and screens are ideal for broadcast applications. Power
sprayers fitted with spray wand/gun may also be used for broadcast application after careful calibration by the applicator. Power sprayers fitted with
spray wand/gun are suitable for spot treatments. It is important to avoid over
application of this product due to excessive overlapping or spot treatment.
Hand operated sprayers: Backpack and compression sprayers are appropriate for small turfgrass areas and spot treatments. Wands fitted with a flat fan
nozzle tip should be held stationary at the proper height during application.
A side-to-side or swinging arm motion may result in uneven coverage. or
excessive application.
Apply this product in a sufficient volume of carrier solution to provide a uniform spray distribution. Spray volumes of 20 – 175 gallons per acre (0.5 to
4.0 gal/1,000 ft2) with spray pressures adjusted to 20 – 40 psi are appropriate. Apply the higher spray volumes for dense weed populations.
Sprayer Equipment Clean-Out
After spraying Echelon 4SC Herbicide and before using sprayer equipment
for any other applications, the sprayer must be thoroughly cleaned using the
following procedure:
1. Drain sprayer tank, hoses, and spray boom and thoroughly rinse the
inside of the sprayer tank with clean water to remove sediment and residues.
In addition, thoroughly flush sprayer hoses, boom, and nozzles with clean
water.
2. Fill the tank 1/2 full with clean water, and add appropriate detergent or
ammonia (follow manufacturerʼs directions for use). Fill the tank to capacity
and operate the sprayer for 15 minutes to flush hoses, boom, and nozzles.
3. Drain the sprayer system. Rinse the tank with clean water and flush
through the hoses, boom, and nozzles. Remove and clean spray tips and
screens separately.
4. Properly dispose of all cleaning solution and rinsate in accordance with
Federal, State and local regulations and guidelines.
Do not drain or flush equipment on or near desirable trees or plants. Do not
contaminate any body of water including irrigation water that may be used
on other plants.

Poa annua is a winter annual. Applications of Echelon 4SC Herbicide should be made in
August or September to established, non overseeded turf before Poa Annua germinates.
Consult local Cooperative Extension Service for more specific applications timings for your
local area since August and September are approximate timings.
Apply Echelon 4SC Herbicide in late summer, fall or winter before weed germinates for control.
Crabgrass control in cool season grasses from fall application: Areas where the ground is subject to winter freezes, Echelon 4SC Herbicide may be applied in the fall at rates listed in Table
1 (8-24 fluid ounces per acre) for cool season grasses when soil temperatures are below 50°F,
but prior to the ground freezing. This will provide control of crabgrass the following spring.
In areas of extended growing season and heavy pressure weed control will be enhanced by
second application of Echelon 4SC Herbicide 60-90 days after initial application

For residual control of germinating weeds in non-crop land, apply as a
broadcast treatment using 24 to 36 fluid ounces (0.75 to 1.125 pounds
active ingredient) per acre by ground in a minimum of 10 gallons of
spray solution per acre. Applications may be made by helicopter on railroad rights-of-way only.
DO NOT apply Echelon 4SC Herbicide to soils classified as sand with
less than 1% Organic Matter.
Use labeled rates of burndown herbicides such as glyphosate,
glyphosate-trimesium, diquat, 2,4-D, dicamba, etc. as tank mixtures
with Echelon 4SC Herbicide. Use recommended adjuvants for the herbicide tank mix partner. For all products used in tank mixes, refer to the
specific product labels for all restrictions on tank mixing and observe all
label precautions, instructions and rotational cropping restrictions.
Timing
For best results, apply Echelon 4SC Herbicide alone or in combination
with other herbicides for residual control of weeds in late summer, fall,
or early spring to insure adequate moisture for soil activation.
Weeds Controlled
Echelon 4SC Herbicide when applied postemergence at 24 to 36 fluid
ounces per acre, will control the following weeds in non-cropland areas
(Table 5). Use the higher labeled rates to extend length of control. Use
the higher rates on sites with fine soil textures and on sites with more
than 2% organic matter.
