EXTRA PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE FOLLOWED AFTER USING 2,4-D OR SIMILAR MATERIALS.

Hoses, rubber connections, pump and hand gun packing are more likely to retain 2,4-D than tank, boom or metal parts, equal attention should be given to the flushing of these. Many authorities recommend renewal of soft parts after using 2,4-D. However, if these are in good condition, Farm General Spray Tank Cleaner will clean them.

  1. Flush complete rig with plain water, inside and out
  2. Use as directed on label except allow Farm General Spray Tank Cleaner to remain in rig and hoses overnight
  3. Take liberal sample of second rinse from each section of boom and hand gun
  4. Sprinkle these samples on particularly susceptible plants such as tomato, cotton, etc. to determine if cleaning was sufficient. Period required to show 2,4-D varies with tem-perature and humidity. 48 hours is usually enough
  5. If tests show 2,4-D present replace hoses, pump packing, rubber connections, etc. and repeat entire process including test. 

Precautions:

Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Wear eye protection.

Advice

  1. GRAZING CROP RESIDUES

    Grazing crop residues (especially after harvest of corn or grain sorghum) can routinely be used to provide a substantial number of days of grazing for beef cattle, but can be especially valuable in years when pasture and hay production have been less-than-optimum. This option becomes even more attractive if grassed [...]

  2. CHANGES MAY BE IN STORE REGARDING HAY

    During a discussion of the economics of forage-livestock production, the point will usually be made that stored feed (predominately hay) should be a major consideration.  It is a fact that feeding animals during times when pasture forage is not available is typically the greatest expense associated with production of grazing [...]

  3. VARIETY SELECTION IS IMPORTANT

    Once a forage-livestock producer has decided to plant a given forage species, he or she will usually find there are several varieties of which seed is available. So how should a person go about deciding which variety to plant? Advice from friends, neighbors, and respected advisors can be helpful, but [...]

  4. MANAGEMENT APPROACHES CAN BE SYNERGISTIC

    Numerous management factors can have an impact on the economics of beef production, as well as on other livestock enterprises.  Every farm is different, so the relevance of a given issue to a particular farm varies. However, a  management approach that typically is of great economic value often interacts with [...]

  5. Reducing Stored Feed Needs

    The most expensive aspect of raising livestock is providing feed for them. In general, pasture forage is less expensive than hay or other stored feed, including hay. Here is a concise review of the major options for reducing stored feed.   Use Cool Season and Warm Season Forages On some [...]
