6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Atrazine is a translocated, pre and post emergence herbicide that is mainly absorbed by the roots with some foliar absorption. It controls a wide range of weeds in tropical (C4) grass crops, triazine tolerant crops, orchards, vineyards, plantations and fallow situations.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

See Best Management Practices for Atrazine in Broadacre Crops.

Best residual weed control comes from split applications where an initial dose is applied and a half dose is applied each month until weeds have finished germinating.

For post emergence control of weeds the minimum rate is around 500 g/ha of atrazine900 with 1% spray oil. Weeds must be small and those with more than 4 leaves or more than 3cm tall are not likely to be adequately controlled unless they are very shallow rooted species like Rat or Squirrel-tailed Fescue (Vulpia species or Silver Grass).

Atrazine will survive on dry soil but will have little action until water is present to take it into the roots.

8 WEATHER:

Rainfast in 1 hour for post emergent applications. Rainfast immediately for pre emergence applications.

Frost effects: Reduced post emergence activity on frost affected plants. Frost has little effect on pre emergence activity.

Wind: Because of its generally low levels of post emergence activity, drift due to wind rarely causes damage.

Inversions: Because of its generally low levels of post emergence activity, drift due to inversions rarely causes damage.

Temperature:

Delta T and relative humidity: Avoid application when Delta T is greater than

Soil moisture at application: Good soil moisture before and after application is generally required for good weed control as it acts mainly through root absorption. Rain or irrigation to thoroughly wet soil through the weed root zone is required within 10 days of spraying for best results.

9 ADJUVANTS:

For pre emergent applications no adjuvants are required.

For post emergent applications the mineral spray oils such as DC-Tron, DC-Trate, Spray Plus, Uptake, Ad-here and others at 1-2% provide far better control of most weeds than the esterified vegetable oils such as Hasten and Kwickin or wetting agents or multi purpose products such as LI700.

Results from the Birchip Group showed Radish control of 84-97% with 0.5-2% of mineral oils, 59-69% with 0.3-1% of esterified vegetable oils and 51% with 0.25% of wetting agent.

10 WATER QUALITY:

Hard water

Colloids

pH

Pre emergent applications can be applied with liquid fertilisers.

There may be increased fertiliser burn when applied as a post emergent application.

11 COMPATIBILITY:

Trace elements.

12 EQUIPMENT:

Conventional boom sprays with flat fan nozzles applying 30 L/ha or more for pre emergence applications and 100 L/ha or more for post emergence applications are normally used. Fine nozzles are prone to blockages with many formulations.

Use 50-80 mesh screens to reduce filter blockages.

Boom sprays:

Carrier volume: 30 L/ha water or more. For post emergence applications 100 L/ha water or more is recommended if using large droplet nozzles.

Nozzles: Flat fan.

Pressure: 150-400 kPa.

Droplet size:

Aerial application:

Carrier volume: 15 L/ha water or more for pre emergence applications and 25 L/ha water or more for post emergence applications. Rainfall or irrigation after spraying is more critical for good results with aerial applications.

13 SPRAYER DECONTAMINATION:

Clean Up:

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

Remove filters and clean separately. Rinse with soapy water (eg 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 (eg 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 leave 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.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

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

Atrazine resistance in weeds will disappear a few years after the last application of triazine herbicides because the resistant plants are less competitive than the susceptible plants. Rotate to other herbicides when triazine resistance first appears.

15 REPLANTING INTERVALS:

CropTime
Cereals6 weeks for rates up to 500 g/ha

12 weeks for rates up to 1 kg/ha

6 months for rates up to 2 kg/ha

12 months for rates up to 4 kg/ha
Other cropsAt least 6 months for crops not on the label.

Times may be longer under dry conditions and on alkaline soils.

16 WITHHOLDING PERIODS:

Canola (post emergence)Grazing6 weeks
All cropsHarvestNot required when used as directed
All other cropsGrazingNot required when used as directed.

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.

19 SOIL:

Soil texture:

Atrazine tends to be bound by clays and higher rates are often required on heavy soils.

Crop damage from pre emergent sprays is more likely on light soils.

Soil pH:

Atrazine persists longer on alkaline soils.

To reduce the risk of atrazine carry-over into subsequent crops, don't' exceed 2 kg/ha Atrazine900 on soils with a pH less than 6.5, and don't' exceed 1 kg/ha Atrazine900 on soils with a pH greater than 6.5 (and on alkaline soils).

Soil organic matter:

Atrazine tends to leach more in soils with low organic matter and has more activity on plants.

Soil nutrient status:

More atrazine is absorbed by susceptible plants and less by tolerant plants in good nutrient conditions and inactivation in tolerant plants is faster (1296, 1297) so better weed control and greatest crop safety occurs at optimum nutritional levels.
