|3.||Formulation : Water dispersible granule.|
|4.||Poison Schedule : 5|
|6.||Product Colour : Off white to cream granules with sweet vanilla odour.|
|7.||Product Flammability : Non-flammable.|
|8.||Dangerous Goods Class : Non dangerous good.|
|9.||Shelf Life : >5 years.|
|10.||Mixtures Compatibility :|
|11.||Registered Crop(s) :|
|12.||Effect of Soil Texture on Herbicide : More readily adsorbed in soils with high clay and organic matter content.|
|13.||Effect of Soil pH on Herbicide : None.|
|14.||Effect of Soil Organic Matter on Herbicide : None.|
|15.||Mode of Action : Inhibits photosynthesis at photosystem II. Foliar translocated and root absorbed. Has considerable contact activity, therefore post-em treatments must be directed in some crops.|
|16.||Application Timing : Pre and post emergence.|
|17.||Rate Variation :|
|18.||Rates Selection : Lower rate weeds in less than 4 true leaf stage. Higher rate weeds with 4 true leaves.|
|20.||Effect on Crop : Possible temporary early yellowing.|
|21.||Effect on Clover Species : Relatively safe to most common sub clover and white clover species.|
|22.||Soil Moisture at Application :|
|23.||Frost Effects : Preceding application reduced efficacy and increased likelihood of crop damage. Up to 14 days after application may affect results.|
|24.||Frost Free Days Required After Application : 14 days.|
|26.||Recommended Water Volume : 50 - 110 L/ha boom.|
|27.||Nozzle Type : Flat fan.|
|28.||Recommended Nozzle Pressure : 200 kPa (28.6 psi).|
|29.||Recommended Filter Size :|
|30.||Recommended Wetter : Non ionic surfactant for some post emergence applications.|
|31.||Other Additives : Nil.|
|32.||Rain Fastness : Minimum 6 hours.|
|33.||Time Interval Before Effect is Noticed : About 7 - 10 days.|
|35.||Effect of Herbicide/Disease Interaction on Crop :|
|36.||Withholding Period : No limitations set, but an interval of 21 days minimum should be left for weeds to be controlled before grazing/harvesting.|
|38.||Spray Tank Clean-Up : Flush system with clean water.|
|39.||Other Comments : Under drier conditions Prometryn will not give favourable results. Will persist longer under dry or cool conditions that are not conducive to maximum chemical and biological activity. More effective on broadleaves than grasses. Weeds will emerge before dying.|
