6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A pre and post emergence, leaf and root absorbed, residual herbicide applied as foliar spray in water for control of broadleaved weeds in cereals, grass pastures and non agricultural areas. It has aminopyralid in addition to the active ingredients in Tordon® 75-D.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results on actively growing plants in fine weather.

Don't apply within the root zone of desirable broadleaved plants. However many plants will stand a portion of their root zone being treated. Test on a small area and assess one year later before doing larger areas.

Avoid drift as this is a hormone herbicide and will show symptoms at low rates of exposure.

Use may be restricted in some areas and/or at some times in some states to reduce off target symptoms.

8 WEATHER:

Rainfast in 4 hours

Frost effects: Frost before or soon after application may reduce effectiveness.

Wind:

Inversions: Don't apply during inversion conditions. This is a hormone product and symptoms will show at low rates of drift.

Temperature:

9 ADJUVANTS:

Wetting agents: These are generally not recommended.

Spray oils: These are generally not recommended.

10 WATER QUALITY:

Salty water:

Colloids:

pH:

Tank life: Long.

11 COMPATIBILITY:

Trace elements.

See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.

12 EQUIPMENT:

Boom sprays:

Carrier volume: 50-100 L water/ha

Nozzles: Flat fan.

Pressure: 150-400 kPa.

Droplet size: A course spray is recommended to help reduce the risk of drift. 200 micron vmd provides good efficacy. Larger sizes will reduce drift but may reduce effectiveness on small plants.

Aerial application:

Carrier volume: 20 L water/ha.

Will not mix with oils.

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 litre of 3% household ammonia per 100 litres of water and circulate for at least 15 minutes (leave for several hours if possible). Triple 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.

Don't use chlorine based cleaners in combination with ammonia.


14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

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

Effect on Clover Species:

Kills clovers.

Effect on Medic Species:

Kills medics

Effect on Lucerne:

Kills lucerne.

Effect on Native Plants:

Damages many native plants if oversprayed and may also damage broadleaved plants by absorption through the soil when the root zone is over sprayed or soil water carries the herbicide into the root zone.

Low levels of drift are usually well tolerated and many species will tolerate about a third of their root zone being sprayed.

Picloram and aminopyralid residues may pass into animal manure causing plant problems when used as fertiliser.

Mulch from treated areas may also affect plants growing in it.

Concentrating stubble into windrows may also lead to greater residue problems in these areas. Burn, slash or incorporate stubbles as soon as possible to reduce the risk.

Poison plants may become more palatable after spraying and cause stock deaths.
