6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A foliar applied, translocated, post emergent herbicide for control of some grasses and broad leaved weeds in some cereals. It is phloem and xylem mobile and is absorbed by leaves, shoots and roots.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results when applied to young actively growing weeds.
Label recommends applying within 8 hours of mixing but it seems reasonably stable in water out of sunlight.

8 WEATHER:

Rainfast in 4-6 hours.
Frost effects: Poorer results are expected on frost affected plants.
Wind:
Inversions: Don't apply during low level inversions.
Temperature:
Delta T and relative humidity: Avoid application when Delta T is greater than
Soil moisture at application: Better results when adequate soil moisture is present. Crop symptoms may be greater if heavy rain falls within a few days of application.

9 ADJUVANTS:

Wetting agents: Label recommends wetting agent such as BS-1000 at 250 mL/100 L water.
Spray oils: In trials, spray oils such as Uptake have given similar results to wetting agents. US data indicates there may be slightly more crop injury with oils.

10 WATER QUALITY:

Hard water:
Salty water:
Colloids:
pH: Longer half life at higher pH.
Tank life: Label says use within 8 hours of mixing but this is probably quite conservative.

11 COMPATIBILITY:

Trace elements.
See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.

12 EQUIPMENT:

Boom sprays:

Carrier volume: 80-100 L/ha water.
Nozzles: Flat fan. Medium quality spray (ASABE standard S-572). (Coarse is on later labels but will struggle to provide good control of small grass weeds).
Pressure: 150-400 kPa.

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 twice with water.
Chlorine based cleaners are NOT recommended.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

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

15 REPLANTING INTERVALS:

Plant back intervals are not required for pyroxsulam residue management. They are just to reduce damage to the following crop.

Winter dominant rainfall areas 
CropTime
Barley, canola, oats, peas.8 months plus 75 mm rain.
Chickpeas, clover, faba beans, lentils, lucerne, medic, vetch.8 months plus 100 mm rain.

Summer dominant rainfall areas 
CropTime
Maize, sorghum, sunflower5 months plus 100 mm rain.
Mung beans5 months plus 150 mm rain.
Barley, canola, oats, peas.7 months plus 100 mm rain.
Chickpeas, clover, faba beans, lucerne, vetch.8 months plus 125 mm rain.
Cotton, soybeans8 months plus 150 mm rain.

16 WITHHOLDING PERIODS:

CropTypeTime
AllGrazing4 weeks.
AllHarvestNot required.

17 RE-ENTRY PERIOD:

Wear protective clothing if in contact with the crop before the spray has dried.

18 PROTECTIVE CLOTHING:

Overalls, boots and washable hat. Use gloves and face shield when handling the concentrate.

19 SOIL:

Soil texture: May be more crop damage on light soils.
Soil pH: More active on soils with high pH.
Soil organic matter: May be more crop damage on low organic matter soils.

20 MODE OF ACTION:

Pyroxsulam is an ALS inhibitor. Group B mode of action. Sulphonamide group. It is a selective triazolopyrimidine sulfonanilide herbicide.
Pyroxsulam inhibits the plant enzyme acetolactate synthase (ALS), which is essential for the synthesis of branched-chain amino acids valine, leucine, and isoleucine. Inhibition of amino acid production subsequently inhibits cell division and causes death in susceptible plants. Pyroxsulam is a systemic, phloem and xylem mobile herbicide that is absorbed via leaves, shoots, and roots.
Halauxifen is a group I disruptor of plant cell growth.

Uptake and translocation:

Absorbed mainly by foliage with some root absorption.

Physiological effects:

Residual Life and Breakdown:

Broken down mainly by microbial action.
Short residual life and quick breakdown. Half life in soil is usually less than 5 days.

21 SELECTIVITY:

Crop tolerance:

Transient stem shortening and yellowing of wheat may occur.
Symptoms may be worse where the crop is stressed, heavy rain or irrigation follows application, on alkaline soils, crop has poor root growth, overdosing or double overlap of spray has occurred or a combination of the above. Where crop stress occurs, a longer period may be required for recovery, especially if the crop is stressed by root or foliar disease, poor nutrition, water logging, drought or cold. In some cases or seasons where a hot, dry spring occurs, flowering may be delayed and yield may be reduced.
Crop tolerance may be reduced where other group B herbicides have been applied.

Varietal sensitivities:

Durum wheats are sensitive.

Effect on Clover Species:

Kills clovers.

Effect on Medic Species:

Kills medics.

Effect on Lucerne:

Severely damages Lucerne and kills seedlings.

Effect on Native Plants:

22 DISEASE AND INSECT EFFECTS:

23 PLANT SYMPTOMS:

Symptoms may take 1-2 weeks to develop.

SECONDARY EFFECTS:

Crop damage maybe worse where root diseases are present.

If in EYES: Irrigate with plenty of water. Then remove contact lens if present and flush some more. See an eye doctor as slight corneal damage can occur.
If on SKIN: Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED: Remove patient to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if not breathing. If breathing is difficult give oxygen.
Advice to doctor: Maintain ventilation and oxygenation. May cause asthma like symptoms. Bronchodilator expectorants and antitussives may be of help. Treat symptomatically.
