3 ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Flupropanate 745 g/L as the sodium salt

Formulation: Water soluble liquid

Also available as a granular formulation.

4 CHEMICAL GROUP: J - Inhibitor of fat synthesis. Alkanoic acids group

5 RELATED HERBICIDES:

6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A slow acting, residual agricultural herbicide for the control of grasses.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Avoid using in channels and other areas where the herbicide may leach to the root zone of desirable plants.

Best results in sunny conditions. Weed control in shady situations may be poor. Allow significant regrowth before applying to burnt areas.

Don't apply near susceptible trees. Clover may be affected.

Only treat pasture land once a year.

Use a non ionic wetting agent.

Don't apply in dry winters.

Don't use high rates on steep sites where herbicide may move causing off target damage.

Grass control is usually poorer in shaded areas.

25 TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Vomiting occurs if swallowed.

Conjunctival irritation if in eyes.

Redness and itchiness if on skin.

Irritate respiratory system and impairs nervous system if inhaled.

26 FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Give water and induce vomiting. Never give water to an unconscious patient.

If in EYES - Irrigate with plenty of water.

If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.

If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if patient is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. See a doctor.

Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically.

27 ENVIRONMENTAL FATE:

It has a half life in soil of some time but is relatively immobile. However, it will leach and may move with heavy rainfall or irrigation. Avoid use in drains and waterways or close to desirable trees.
