Out-of-crop weed control can be one of your most important strategies in managing difficult weeds. Express® SG provides enhanced control of hard-to-kill broadleaf weeds by getting right to the root of your toughest weed problems and it delivers the performance you can’t get by simply applying more glyphosate. Using an add-in with glyphosate is more important than ever and many studies have indicated that mixing herbicide groups is one of the most effective and sustainable ways to manage herbicide weed resistance.

Quick Facts

  • Express® SG is systemic within the plant, just like glyphosate, controlling right down to the root to prevent re-growth.
  • Offers maximum cropping flexibility (seed cereals and select pulse crops 24 hours after a pre-seed burn-off).
  • Can be tank-mixed with any glyphosate.
  • Spray water quality is not an issue. Efficacy is not harmed by hard water, high pH and/or high bicarbonate.
  • Express® SG offers more enhanced weed control than glyphosate alone.

Chemical Group: Group 2. Registered and Supported Tank Mixes: Express® SG herbicide must be tank-mixed with glyphosate. Timing: Pre-seed burndown, chemfallow, and post-harvest applications. Crop Rotation:

Pre-seed Burndown: 24 hours after application, can seed spring wheat, winter wheat, durum, barley, oats, alfalfa, red clover, alsike clover (seed or forage production), smooth bromegrass, meadow bromegrass, timothy, creeping red fescue, canary seed and pulse crops* (including dry bean, faba bean, field pea, lupin and soybean). Any crop may be seeded the year following a pre-seed burndown.

  Chemfallow: Allow at least 10 days after treatment before tillage. Any of the above crops can be seeded 24 hours after application. Two (2) months after application, you can also seed canola, flax or lentils.   Fall Application: Seed winter wheat a minimum of 24 hours after application. Next spring you can seed any cereal crop, canola, flax, lentils, canary seed, field corn, alfalfa or pulse crops (including dry bean, faba bean, field pea, lupin and soybean). Application Information: Rates and Packaging: 6 g/ac. One (1) jug treats 80 acres. Water Volume: 22 L/ac (5 imp. g/L). Mixing Instructions:

  1. Start with a clean empty sprayer. Ensure sprayer is equipped with 50 mesh screens or filters.
  2. Fill sprayer tank 1/2 full with clean water.
  3. With agitator running, add the FMC products according to their formulation as shown below in the WAMLEGS chart. Add the products slowly. Ensure agitation reaches all parts of the tank.
  4. If using a mix & fill tank, add the FMC product to as large a volume of water as possible in a chemical handler.
  5. Add product to tank and agitate for 10 minutes
  6. Proceed with adding additional products as per the WAMLEGS chart and water while maintaining agitation. Ensure each product is agitated sufficiently, before proceeding to the next tank mix partner.
  7. For repeat tank loads, start off with an empty tank or ensure spray solution is reduced to 10% or less, of the original volume.
  8. (Recommended) For the last load of the day, add 10 L of household ammonia (containing at least 3% ammonia) to the tank heel PRIOR to the addition of the FMC product, water and glyphosate. Follow steps 2 through 6.
  9. (Recommended) When spraying an FMC product, for multiple days in a row it is important, at the end of each day to fill the sprayer with water, overnight, to prevent any film from developing on the tank walls.

Special mixing instructions for soluble granule (SG) herbicides when using a CHEM HANDLER:

  1. Ensure the chem handler is clean (rinsed with ammonia).
  2. For best results, add the SG herbicide to the top of the sprayer tank.
  3. If you do use a chem handler, make sure that all of the SG herbicide is completely dissolved and injected into the main tank with agitation, before adding other chemicals.
  4. Low water volumes in some chem handlers can cause the water to become saturated with soluble granules, leaving undissolved granules. In that case, rinse the chem handler with clean water before adding any other chemicals.
  5. Always dissolve the soluble granules with agitation in the main tank before adding a tank-mix partner.

Note: Follow the clean-out procedure recommended for sprayer tanks for the chem handler. Mixing Procedure:

  1. Start with a clean, empty sprayer. Ensure sprayer is equipped with 50 mesh screens or filters.
  2. Fill sprayer tank 1/4 to 1/3 full with clean water.
  3. With agitator running, add Express® herbicide slowly. Ensure agitation reaches all parts of the tank.
  4. If using a mix & fill tank, add Express® herbicide to as large a volume of water as possible.
  5. Let dissolve for five (5) minutes minimum while agitating and adding more water.
  6. After five (5) minutes of agitation, complete filling with water and then add glyphosate.
  7. For repeat tank loads, ensure spray solution is reduced to 10% or less of the original volume OR pre-slurry Express® in minimum 20L of water per 80 acres prior to going to step 2. Dissolving may take longer in low water volumes.
  8. (Optional) For the last load of the day, add 10L of household ammonia (containing at least 3% ammonia) to the tank heel PRIOR to the addition of Experss® herbicide, water and glyphosate.

Repeat steps 2 through 5.
