Performance Inquiry Guidelines

Dow AgroSciences encourages contact within the timelines listed for proper field assessments to resolve and rectify the call.

After these deadlines, it is difficult to determine the circumstances leading to non-performance.


  Days After Use
Seed Within 21 days (after crop emergence)
Pre-emergent herbicides Within 21 days (after crop emergence)
Post emergent herbicides Within 21 days after treatment
Pre-seed herbicides Within 21 days after treatment
Pre-harvest or post harvest Within 21 days after seeding – the following spring
Fallow applications Within 21 days after treatment
Fungicides 7 days after treatment
Insecticides 7 days after treatment

* Check Strips: while not essential, a check strip provides a good indication of product performance.
