6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A post emergence, leaf absorbed, non-residual agricultural herbicide applied as a spray in water for the control of broadleaved weeds in cereals.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results when applied in fine mild weather on young actively growing plants.

Avoid spraying if rain expected in 3 hours as poor weed control may occur.

Avoid spraying if heavy rain expected within 48 hours as crop damage may occur.

Use Uptake at 0.5% or other spray oil.

Use a wetting agent if tank mixed with metsulfuron.

Allow a 10 m downwind buffer near water bodies and a 60 m downwind buffer near native vegetation.

Avoid drift onto susceptible crops like grapes, oilseeds, tomatoes and ornamentals as this contains a hormone herbicide.

Use a coarse spray quality to reduce the risk of drift.

Avoid spraying during temperature inversions.

Shake containers before use as the product may settle in storage.

8 WEATHER:

Rainfast in 3 hours. Heavy rain within 48 hours of application may lead to crop damage.

Frost effects: Poorer results on frosted plants.

Wind:

Inversions: Don't apply in inversion conditions as significant drift may occur.

Temperature: Not affected much by temperature.

Soil moisture at application: Best results when soil is moist.

9 ADJUVANTS:

Wetting agents: Use a non-ionic wetter if tank mixed with metsulfuron.

Spray oils: Use a spray oil at 0.5% unless contra indicated by partner herbicides.

10 WATER QUALITY:

Hard water: May cause separation of the active ingredients (do a jar test).

Salty water: May cause separation of the active ingredients (do a jar test).

Colloids:

pH:

Tank life: Keep agitated.

11 COMPATIBILITY:

Trace elements. Some chemicals (acids, bases and oxidisers) may cause phase separation (do a jar test).

See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.

12 EQUIPMENT:

Boom sprays:

Carrier volume: 50-100 L/ha. Use at least 80 L/ha if applying as a coarse spray.

Nozzles: Flat fan. Producing a coarse quality spray (ASABE standard s-572) recommended on label to reduce the risk of drift.

Pressure: 150-400 kPa.

13 SPRAYER DECONTAMINATION:

Clean Up:

Clean soon after spraying to reduce the risk of forming dried deposits that may be difficult to remove.

Remove filters and clean separately. Rinse with soapy water (e.g. 500 mL or g of Drive, Dynamo, Omo or Surf per 100 L water) or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom. Rinse with water.

Decontamination:

Remove filters and clean then soak in 500 mL household ammonia in 10 L water for 30 minutes.

Rinse sprayer with soapy water (e.g. 500 mL or g of Drive, Dynamo, Omo or Surf per 100 L water) or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom. Fill with 1% solution of ammonia and leave for several hours. Triple rinse with water. Or use a commercial spray tank and equipment cleaner.

Rinse nozzles and filters in water and replace.

Don't use chlorine based cleaners.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

Tolerant plants are expected to occur and may dominate the weed population after repeated applications.

Other cropsGrazing7 days

No restrictions on the use of straw. Doesn't bind to straw.

17 RE-ENTRY PERIOD:

Wear protective clothing if in contact with the crop before the spray has dried.

18 PROTECTIVE CLOTHING:

Overalls, boots and washable hat. Use gloves and face shield when handling the concentrate.

19 SOIL:

Soil texture: No specific effect.

Soil pH: Product may be more active on high pH (limestone) soils.

Soil organic matter: No specific effect.

20 MODE OF ACTION:

2,4-D component disrupts plant cell growth. Florasulam inhibits the acetolactate synthase (ALS) enzyme which inhibits fat or lipid synthesis.

Uptake and translocation:

Foliar absorbed. Some root absorption especially if heavy rain follows application and/or on alkaline soils. Translocated in phloem and xylem.

Physiological effects:

Residual Life and Breakdown:

Breakdown is mainly by microbial processes.

Rapidly metabolised in tolerant plants.

21 SELECTIVITY:

Tolerant plants rapidly metabolise florasulam and 2,4-D which reduces the residue levels.

Crop tolerance:

Slight transient yellowing and some crop retardation may occur but this rarely affects grain yield. Symptoms are usually most evident 7-14 days after application.

Varietal sensitivities:

Effect on Clover Species:

Kills clovers.

Effect on Medic Species:

Kills medics.

Effect on Lucerne:

Kills seedling lucerne, damages established lucerne.

Effect on Native Plants:

Allow a 60 m downwind buffer near native vegetation.

22 DISEASE AND INSECT EFFECTS:

Crops affected by disease are more likely to be damaged.

23 PLANT SYMPTOMS:

Susceptible plants stop growing soon after application. Complete death may take several weeks and 4-6 weeks for some species.

SECONDARY EFFECTS:

24 TOXICITY:
