6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:


A post emergence, mainly leaf absorbed, short residual herbicide applied as spray in water for control of broad-leaved weeds in cereals.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results on small, actively growing weeds in fine weather.
Transient crop yellowing may occur.
Ensure thorough coverage.
Do not apply with crop oils.

Do not apply to crops undersown with lucerne, clover or medics.
Avoid spray drift and vapour movement onto susceptible crops such as canola, cotton, tobacco, grapevines, lupins, fruit trees, ornamentals, tomatoes and other vegetables.
Sprayed weeds may become more palatable to stock and may result in stock poisoning and death from causes such as nitrate poisoning.
Persons sensitised to bromoxynil should avoid contact with this product.
Very toxic to aquatic life.

8 WEATHER:

Rainfast in 4 hours .
Frost effects: Poorer control in frosty weather.
Wind: Apply when wind is 3 -20 kilometres per hour to reduce the risk of drift.
Inversions: Do not apply during hazardous temperature inversions.

See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.

12 EQUIPMENT:

Boom sprays:

Carrier volume: 50 L/ha or more. Use higher rates if using coarse nozzles or on smaller weeds. 70-100 L/ha or more is preferred.
Nozzles: Flat fan.
Pressure: 150-400 kPa.
Droplet size: Coarse recommended on label to reduce the risk of drift.

Aerial application:

Carrier volume: 30 L/ha.

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. Rinse with soapy water (e.g. 500 mL or g of Drive, Dynamo, Omo or Surf per 100 L water) or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom. Rinse with water.

Decontamination:

Remove filters and clean then soak in 500 mL household ammonia in 10 L water for 30 minutes.
Rinse sprayer with soapy water (e.g. 500 mL or g of Drive, Dynamo, Omo or Surf per 100 L water) or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom. Fill with 1 litre of 3% household ammonia per 100 litres of water and circulate for at least 15 minutes (allow to stand for several hours if possible). Triple rinse with water. Or use a commercial spray tank and equipment cleaner.
Rinse nozzles and filters in water and replace then rinse the whole system with water again.
Don't use chlorine based cleaners in combination with ammonia.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

Tolerant plants are expected to occur and may dominate the weed population after repeated applications.

Summary:

Harmful if inhaled or swallowed. Will irritate eyes. May irritate skin. Repeated exposure may cause allergic disorders.

Details:

SUSMP classification (Poison schedule): S6
See individual components (bromoxynil, diflufenican, MCP A and picolinafen) for toxicity data.
Mammalian toxicity:
Acute oral LD50: mg/kg (rat), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50: > mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin:
Eye:
Vapour inhalation: LC50 > mg/L air (rat).
Not carcinogenic in animal studies (i.e. does not cause cancer in animal tests).
N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone is a SWA Class 2 Reproductive risk, may cause harm to the unborn child.

Bromoxynil Octanoate is a SWA Class 3 Reproductive risk.

Bromoxynil Octanoate is classed by SWA as a potential sensitiser by skin contact.
Chronic oral toxicity: NOEL mg/kg for two years.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI):
Persons sensitised to bromoxynil should avoid contact with this product.

25 TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

26 FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED: Wash out mouth with water. Do NOT give anything by mouth to a semiconscious or unconscious patient. Do NOT induce vomiting.
If in EYES: Hold eyelids open and wash eyes with plenty of water for 5 minutes, remove contact lenses if present and wash for a further 10 minutes. See a doctor if symptoms persist.
If on SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. If skin irritation or rash occurs: Get medical advice. Exposure to a skin sensitiser, once sensitisation has occurred, may manifest itself as skin rash or inflammation, and in some individuals this reaction can be severe. Testing indicates that this product is not toxic through dermal absorption, and does not cause irritation except in sensitised individuals.
If INHALED: Remove patient to fresh air. See a doctor if symptoms persist.
Advice to doctor: Treat symptomatically.
