6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A selective, translocated, foliar absorbed, post emergence herbicide that controls a large range of broadleaf weeds in crops, pastures and non agricultural areas. These formulations have lower volatility and are less prone to vapour drift than the ethyl and butyl ester forms of 2,4-D. However, in most situations, droplet drift rather than vapour drift is the cause of off target damage.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results on young actively growing plants.

Some species (eg cotton, vines, tomatoes, lettuce) are sensitive to very low rates and drift may cause damage.

Apply in 30-100 L/ha water for boom spraying.

Apply in 10-90 L/ha water for aerial spraying.

Apply in 1000-2000 L/ha water for high volume spraying.

Regulations require the use of coarse spray droplets when applying 2,4-D.

8 WEATHER:

Rainfast in 3-4 hours

Frost effects: Frost before application may retard weed growth thus reducing translocation. For best results, 2-3 frost free days required after application.

Wind: Regulations require application when wind speeds are between 3 and 15 km/hour to reduce the risk of damage caused by drift. Avoid spraying when wind is blowing towards sensitive crops.

Inversions: Don't apply during inversion conditions as damaging levels of herbicide drift may move a kilometre or more.

Temperature:

Delta T and Relative Humidity: Avoid application when Delta T is greater than

9 ADJUVANTS:

Adjuvants are not normally required. A non ionic wetting agent may be useful on hard to wet weeds.

10 WATER QUALITY:

Hard water - Very hard water can cause the product to separate from the water.

Salty water - can cause the product to separate from the water.

Colloids - Little effect.

pH -

11 COMPATIBILITY:

Trace elements - generally not compatible.

Ester formulations generally have good compatibility providing the emulsifier is not overloaded and the product separates from the water (do a jar test).

Some products such as Estercide Xtra are formulated to be more tolerant of cold, alkaline and saline water up to 1000 ppm.

See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.

12 EQUIPMENT:

Boom sprays, aerial, misters, high and low volume hand leads.

Regulations require the use of coarse droplets to reduce the impacts of drift.

80 or 110 degree flat fan nozzles operating at 150-300 kPa is a typical set up for boom sprays. Larger orifice nozzles (eg 02 or 03) or air induction nozzles are used to reduce drift but water volumes need to be about 80 L/ha or more for good coverage of small weeds.

13 SPRAYER DECONTAMINATION:

Clean Up:

Remove filters and nozzles and manually clean separately. Rinse with kerosene or water plus degreaser. Rinse with 1% ammonia through boom then triple rinse with soapy water or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom.

Decontamination:

Remove filters and nozzles and clean separately. Rinse with kerosene or water plus degreaser. Wash out with hot soapy water or water plus 0.25% wetting agent. Fill with 1% solution of ammonia and leave for several hours. Triple rinse with water plus wetting agent. Or use a commercial spray tank and equipment cleaner. Check and clean filters and nozzles again if necessary.

It may not be possible to decontaminate old spray tanks and hoses.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some plants have developed some resistance to 2,4-D.

These plant backs are generally quite conservative and problems are rarely seen with shorter periods because most of the free 2,4-D ester evaporates within a day or two of spraying.
