Harvest Aid

carfentrazone (Aim EC)

Rate 0.016 to 0.096 lb ai/A (1.0 to 6.1 oz/A Aim EC)

Time Apply at maturity when 80 to 90% of seed pods are yellow or buck skin color and only 30% of green leaves remain on the plant.

Remarks Can be applied up to 0 days before harvest. Use a minimum of 15 gallons of finished spray per acre for ground application and 5 gallons per acre for aerial application. MSO or COC is required at 1 to 2% v/v. The addition of liquid nitrogen fertilizer at 2 to 4% v/v may enhance performance.

Caution Do not apply more than 6.1 oz/A per season.

Site of action Group 14: protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO) inhibitor

Chemical family Triazinone

paraquat (Gramoxone SL 2.0 or other trade names)

Rate 0.3 to 0.5 lb ai/A (1.2 to 2 pints/A Gramoxone SL 2.0)

Time Apply when crop is mature: this means at least 80% of pods are yellowing and mostly ripe, and no more than 40% of leaves in bush-type peas, or 30% of leaves in vine-type peas, are still green.

Remarks Use with a nonionic surfactant at 0.25 % v/v. Split applications permitted. Do not exceed two applications per season or 2 pints/A of Gramoxone SL 2.0. Apply in at least 20 gal/A water by ground or 5 gal/A by air.

Caution A restricted-use herbicide. Do not allow to drift from target site. Do not apply within 7 days of harvest.

Site of action Group 22: photosystem I electron diversion

Chemical family Bipyridilium

saflufenacil (Sharpen)

Rate 0.022 to 0.044 lb ai/A (1.0 to 2.0 oz/A Sharpen)

Time Apply over the top of dry peas that have reached physiological maturity (at least 80% yellow/brown pods and no more than 30% of leaves still green for vine-type peas, and no more than 40% of leaves are still green for bush-type peas..

Remarks Allow up to 10 days for optimum desiccation effect. Thorough spray coverage and an MSO plus ammonium-based adjuvant system are required for optimum desiccation.

Caution Maximum cumulative amount per cropping season for desiccation uses is 2.0 oz/A. Do not apply within 3 days of harvest.
