How it Works

Banvel® II can be tank mixed and used in pre-seed applications or in-crop applications or other applications in pasture, rangeland grasses and non-crop areas.

Registered crops for in-crop applications

  • Canary seed
  • Dicamba-tolerant soybeans1
  • Field corn
  • Pasture grasses
  • Red fescue (new seedling)
  • Red fescue (established)
  • Seedling grasses

Other applications

Pasture and rangeland grasses, non-crop areas: Smooth bromegrass, meadow fescue, tall fescue, meadow foxtail, orchard grass, creeping red fescue, timothy, crested wheatgrass, intermediate wheat grass, pubescent wheatgrass, slender wheatgrass, streambank wheatgrass, and tall wheatgrass.

1 Apply by ground ONLY to dicamba-tolerant soybeans. Soybean varieties that are not designated as dicamba-tolerant will be damaged or destroyed by this treatment.

Application Tips

Pre-harvest interval

For application to dicamba-tolerant soybeans: 7 to 10 days after application for soybean forage and 13 to 15 days after application for soybean hay.

Grazing

  • Do not permit lactating dairy animals to graze fields within 7 days after application.
  • Do not harvest forage or cut hay within 30 days after application.
  • Withdraw meat animals from treated fields at least 3 days before slaughter.
  • Following treatment with Banvel II plus any other herbicide tank mix: Do not graze or harvest for livestock feed prior to crop maturity; sufficient data are not available to support such use.

When to Apply

Dicamba-tolerant soybeans 1 pre-seed, pre-emergence, post-emergence (early flower)
Field corn up to 50 cm tall2
Pasture grasses established, actively growing
Red fescue (new seedling) 5cm
Red fescue (established) flag-leaf
Seedling grasses 2 to 4 leaf

1 Apply by ground ONLY to dicamba-tolerant soybeans. Soybean varieties that are not designated as dicamba-tolerant will be damaged or destroyed by this treatment.

2 Broadcast spray up to 20 cm, larger corn plants require drop nozzles.

Tank mixes

Herbicides for the following crops

  • Corn: Accent®16, Option®17
  • Dicamba-tolerant soybeans: Roundup WeatherMAX Transorb®2

Mixing Instructions

  1. Use a 50 mesh filter screen.
  2. Fill clean tank with 1/2 of the required amount of clean water and agitate during the entire mixing procedure.
  3. Add the required amount of Banvel II herbicide.
  4. If tank mixing, add the appropriate tank-mix partner now.
  5. Add the rest of the water to the spray tank and maintain sufficient agitation during mixing and spraying to ensure a uniform spray mixture.

1 Apply by ground ONLY to dicamba-tolerant soybeans. Soybean varieties that are not designated as dicamba-tolerant will be damaged or destroyed by this treatment.

2 Broadcast spray up to 20 cm, larger corn plants require drop nozzles.

10 See label for a complete list of additional available tank mixes and their rates. Tank mix options are not included in the case.

11 See label for water rate application.

12 Banvel II can be used alone or in tank mix with Roundup® WeatherMAX with Transorb® 2 Technology Liquid Herbicide for additional broadleaf and grass weed control. See label for important details on rates.

13 The 505 ml/ac rate is to be used only once in a season and should be used pre-plant, pre-emergence or in crop early post-emergence.

14 991 ml/ac of Banvel II is the maximum total to be applied in a single growing season year.

15 Must be applied in tank mix, see label for tank mix partners.
