6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A pre-emergent herbicide for the control of weeds in established turf.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results if at least 6 mm rainfall occurs within 7 days of application before weeds germinate.

Don't use on turf that is stressed, newly seeded, or sprigged.

Avoid use if heavy rain has been forecast within 48 hours.

Don't use closer than 120 m upwind of water bodies or 10 m of non-target vegetation.

Do not use on waterlogged soils.

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. Triple rinse with water or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom.

Decontamination:

Remove filters and clean separately.

Rinse with water and drain.

Quarter fill the tank with an alkali detergent (eg 500 mL or g of Drive, Dynamo, Omo, or Surf per 100 L water) and circulate for at least 15 minutes then run through boom. Rinse with water. Remove filters and clean separately. Replace them and rinse the whole system with water again.
