FUSION SUPER WG HERBICIDECROP CARE AUSTRALASIA PTY LTDWATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULE

Fusion Super has a greater ratio of butroxydim to fluazifop than the old Fusion WG. This is better for marginally resistant Annual Ryegrass but is weaker on the Brome and Barley Grasses.

See Fusilade for general information on the fluazifop component of Fusion.

See Falcon for general information on the butroxydim component of Fusion.

6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A translocated, post emergent selective herbicide for grass control in a range of broad leaved crops. The combination of a fop and dim group herbicide provides more effective control of Annual Ryegrass plus good broad spectrum control of other grasses such as the cereals, bromes and barley grass.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results when applied to young actively growing weeds in fine conditions.

Grass control is usually improved by the addition of a spraying oil but may cause increased crop effects.

10 WATER QUALITY:

Hard water

Colloids

pH

11 COMPATIBILITY:

Not compatible with hormone herbicides.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some populations of wild oats and Annual Ryegrass may be resistant to this herbicide.

18 PROTECTIVE CLOTHING:

20 MODE OF ACTION:

Inhibits fat synthesis.

Uptake and translocation:

Shoot uptake mainly with some root uptake. Translocated.

Physiological effects:

Residual Life and Breakdown:

Selectivity:

Occasional damage has occurred when applied to some varieties of Canola.

Some field evidence suggests that damage may be worse when plants are suffering from a sulphur deficiency. This needs clarification.

23 PLANT SYMPTOMS:

Yellowing and reddening of plants within a week or two of spraying, reduced root and shoot growth followed by death.

Distortion of sensitive broadleaf plants.

SECONDARY EFFECTS:

24 TOXICITY:

Summary:

Schedule 6.

Oral Toxicity (ingestion by mouth)-

May cause nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Dermal Toxicity (absorption by skin) -

May irritate skin.

Details:

Mammalian toxicity - low.

Acute oral LD50 - >621 mg/kg (rabbit), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]

Acute dermal LD50 - > 2000 mg/kg (rabbit).

Skin - Moderate skin irritant. Not a sensitiser.

Eye - Mild irritant.

Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > 2.99 mg/L/4hr air (rat).

Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.

Potentially carcinogenic or teratogenic

Teratogenic with repeated doses in rats NOEL 45 mg/kg/day rat.

Foetotoxic effects in rats and rabbits. NOEL 15 mg/kg/day in rabbits and 5 mg/kg/day in rats. May cause harm to the unborn child.

High doses produce adverse effects in testes of rats (NOEL 1 mg/kg/day) and dogs (NOEL 5 mg/kg/day).

Repeated and prolonged exposure may cause liver and kidney disorders (NOEL 15 mg/kg/day or 100 ppm).

Acceptable daily intake for humans is 0.005 mg/kg/day.

Birds - low toxicity. LD50 > 1221 mg/kg

Fish - high toxicity LC50 > 1.07 ppm.

Invertebrates - toxicity. LC50 > 1 ppm

Bees - low toxicity. LD50 > 200 ug/bee.

Algae - EC50 1.7 mg/L.

Risk of bioaccumulation in aquatic species is high from the fluazifop component.

25 TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:
