6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A pre and post emergence, root absorbed, residual herbicide applied as spray in water.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results are usually from applications just before weeds germinate.
Do not apply if runoff expected within 3 days.

8 WEATHER:

Rainfast in 0 hours.
Frost effects:
Wind: Don't apply when wind speed is less than 3 or more than 20 kilometres per hour to reduce the risk of drift.
Inversions: Do not apply during temperature inversions.
Temperature: Apply when temperature is 12-250C
Delta T and relative humidity:

See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.

12 EQUIPMENT:

Boom sprays:

Carrier volume: 50-1000 L water/ha. (400 L/ha is on label for turf)
Nozzles: Flat fan.
Pressure: 150-400 kPa.
Droplet size: Medium.

Aerial application:

Carrier volume:

13 SPRAYER DECONTAMINATION:

Clean Up:

Clean soon after spraying to reduce the risk of forming dried deposits that may be difficult to remove. Mechanically remove any caked deposits.
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. Add 1 L of household ammonia (3% active ingredient) per 100 L water while filling the tank. Circulate through the system and spray a small quantity through the boom then allow to stand for several hours. Rinse with soapy water or water plus 0.25% wetting agent. Rinse with water. Or use a commercial spray tank and equipment cleaner.
Rinse nozzles and filters in water and replace then rinse the whole system with water again.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

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

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:

Uptake and translocation: Absorbed through the roots.
Physiological effects:
Residual Life and Breakdown: Residual herbicide.

21 SELECTIVITY:

Chronic oral toxicity: NOEL mg/kg for two years.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI):
ATE US (oral): 1015 mg/kg bodyweight
