Metribuzin is of moderate persistence in the soil environment. The half-life of Metribuzin varies according to soil type and climatic conditions. Soil half-lives of 30 to 120 days have been reported; a representative value may be approximately 60 days. Metribuzin is poorly bound to most soils and soluble in water, giving it a potential for leaching in many soil types. Soil mobility is affected by many site-specific variables, including the amount of soil organic matter, particle size distribution, porosity, rainfall, and application rates. Metribuzin has been detected in some rivers, wells and groundwater in the USA. The major mechanism by which Metribuzin is lost from soil is microbial degradation. Losses due to volatilization or photodegradation are not significant under field conditions. Breakdown in water: The half-life of Metribuzin in pond water is approximately 7 days. If present, Metribuzin would most likely be found in the water column rather than the sediment, due to its low binding affinity and high water solubility. Breakdown in vegetation: Metribuzin is absorbed through the leaves when plants are given surface treatment, but the primary route for uptake is through the root system. From the roots, it is translocated upward, becoming concentrated in the roots, stems, and leaves of treated plants. In non-susceptible plants it is de-aminised to more water-soluble conjugates; in susceptible plants it is not metabolized and disrupts photosynthesis in the chloroplast.

3. Formulation : Dry flowable, wettable powder.

4. Poison Schedule : 5

5. Trade name : Sencor 750 WG - Bayer

6. Product Colour : Brown-white.

7. Product Flammability : Non-flammable.

8. Dangerous Goods Class :

9. Shelf Life : Unlimited.

(When stored under ideal conditions- refer Page 4)

10. Mixtures Compatibility : Tank mixtures other than with trifluralin NOT recommended.

11. Registered Crop(s) : Barley, Peas (Field, Processing, Green), White Lupins, Potatoes, Soybeans, tomatoes and spot spraying.

12. Effect of Soil Texture on Herbicide : Heavier textures require higher rates of metribuzin to be used. In light sandy soils more metribuzin is available in the soil solution than in heavier clay soils: thus in light sandy soils it is more readily leached and more readily available for uptake. So use lower rates. Do NOT apply to light sandy soils low in organic matter as crop injury may occur. Metribuzin is readily leached from these soils.

13. Effect of Soil pH on Herbicide : More active at higher soil pH. Do NOT apply to soils of pH > 8 which are prone to waterlogging as crop injury may occur. Do NOT apply to barley in alkaline soils pH over 7. As pH increases, soil adsorption decreases.

14. Effect of Soil Organic Matter on Herbicide : Higher organic matter levels require higher rates of metribuzin to be used. For soybeans do NOT apply to soils with less than (<) 0.5% organic matter. as crop injury may result. As organic matter and clay content of soil increase the cation exchange capacity increases, as does the adsorption of metribuzin. Therefore movement through the soil profile decreases.

15. Mode of Action : Major method of uptake is via the root system, some contact and a little translocation. Both pre- and post-emergent.

16. Application Timing : Peas - apply after rain when crop is pre-em to 3 node stage. Lupins - pre-emergent. Barley - 5 leaf stage. Potatoes - no more than 6 leaves or no more than 10 cm high.

17. Rate Variations : 180 g/ha - 700 g/ha.

18. Rates Selection : Lower rate 180 g/ha light sandy soils i.e. Mallee sands. Higher rate 280 g/ha medium soils, loams, silt + clay 40 - 60%.

Other rates 380 g/ha heavy soils + clay loams + silt clay 60%. 470 g/ha Kooweerup swamp and volcanic soils. 700 g/ha in some situations where certain grasses are a problem.

19. Crop Damage (Crop Tolerance) :

Barley >5 leaf stage on moist soil.

Field Peas Sow crop 3-4 cm deep.

Lupins Tanjil, Wonga and old varieties of lupins are more sensitive to metribuzin than Gungurru and Merrit type varieties.

20. Effect on Crop : Do not apply to Pennant, White, Brunswick or Alma field peas.

22. Soil Moisture at Application :

DRY - There is no root uptake of metribuzin and results against grass weeds and hogweed (wireweed) will be poor.

MOIST - Best results if 6 - 12 mm rain falls within 2 weeks of application.

WATERLOGGED - Poor control as plants stressed, crop injury may occur if stressed.

23. Frost Effects : Prior to and after application there is a potential for crop injury or poor efficacy. During application wrong climatic conditions to apply the product.

24. Frost Free Days Required After Application : 1 day. Will depend on daily temperatures which will influence the rate of recovery.

25. Effect of Application Water Quality on Herbicide :

Saline Water - No adverse effect reported.

Soil Colloids - No adverse effect reported.

26. Recommended Water Volume : Minimum 120 L/ha.

27. Nozzle Type : Flat fan (Cone nozzles NOT satisfactory).

28. Recommended Nozzle Pressure : 200 - 300 kPa (28.6 - 43.5 psi).

30. Recommended Wetter : No wetter required.

31. Other Additives : None recommended.

32. Rain Fastness : 4 - 6 hours.

33. Time Interval Before Effect is Noticed : 7 - 30 days depending on growing conditions.

35. Effect of Herbicide/Disease Interaction on Crop : Do not apply to crops affected by collar or stem rot.

36. Withholding Period : 14 days for barley if grazed or cut for stock food.

37. Plant-Back Period : Do NOT plant treated areas to sensitive crops such as Brassica, sunflowers, or beetroot for at least 6 months following application of metribuzin, as crop injury may result. Thoroughly work the soil prior to planting of these crops.

38. Spray Tank Clean-Up : Flush tank, boom, hoses, and pump with several changes of fresh water after removing nozzle tips and screens (clean separately).

39. Other Comments : Do NOT apply on barley crops grown on alkaline, light sandy soils or soils low in organic matter. Do NOT use on pea crops grown on light sandy soils.
