We’ll admit it, many people are terrible at following directions. You only look at directions if people’s lives may hang in the balance or if the product is extremely expensive and even then most farmers may just use them as a reference. Product labels on herbicides can arouse that response in even the most disciplined producer. Unfortunately but not surprisingly, being a “free spirit” when mixing and applying your herbicides can have disastrous results. Herbicide product labels are very specific for a reason.
