6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A pre-emergence, translocated, root absorbed soil-residual herbicide. It is selective at low rates providing control of a range of annual grasses and annual broad-leaved weeds in annual Fabaceae crops. At higher rates it is less selective controlling a range of annual weeds in established perennial crops, orchards, vineyards, plantations, bulb crops and triazine tolerant crops.

It is of low toxicity to mammals, birds, fish, crustacea and bees but toxic to algae.

Simazine has been used for many years over large areas with few problems. It has been detected in ground water and contamination is an issue oversees but is of little environmental or health significance. It is rarely detected in ground water in Australia and buffer zones are required in some situations.

7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results when applied to moist, trash free soil with a fine tilth before weeds emerge and rain follows a day or two later.

Use lower rates on light soils, low in organic matter. Use higher rates on heavier soils and/or high free organic matter or where crop residues are present.

Where there is complete cover of stubble on the ground, 30-40% of the applied simazine may be lost (absorbed).

8 WEATHER:

Rainfast immediately.

Frost effects: Stress resulting in reduction in root activity of weeds will result in poorer uptake of herbicide and potentially poorer weed control.

Wind: Little effect.

Inversions: Avoid application during low level inversions as excessive drift may occur. This rarely causes problems with simazine.

Temperature: Little effect.

Delta T and relative humidity: Little effect.

9 ADJUVANTS:

Wetting agents: compatible but not required.

Spray oils: compatible but usually not required. Control of cotyledonary seedlings may be slightly improved by adding a spray oil.

10 WATER QUALITY:

Hard water: Usually OK, but simazine is susceptible to slow alkaline hydrolysis.

Salty water: Usually OK. If using saline water add LI 700 at 100 mL/100 L of spray mix.

Colloids: Usually OK.

pH: Generally little effect.

Tank life: >1-2 weeks. Maybe less in acid water.

11 COMPATIBILITY:

Trace elements.

See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.

12 EQUIPMENT:

Boom sprays:

Carrier volume: 20-500 L/ha. Use higher speeds rather than smaller nozzles to achieve low water rates.

Nozzles: Flat fan. Small nozzles may lead to a large number of blockages.

Pressure: 150-400 kPa.

Droplet size: Not critical.

Filter Sizes : 50 or 80 are preferred. 100 mesh are acceptable. 120 mesh tend to block too often.

Hand sprays:

Carrier volume: 500-3000 L/ha

Nozzles: Flat fan, cone, disk or reflex flood jet.

Pressure: 150-400 kPa.

Droplet size: Not critical.

Aerial application:

Carrier volume: 30 L/ha - tends to strip.

13 SPRAYER DECONTAMINATION:

Clean Up:

Clean soon after spraying to reduce the risk of forming dried deposits that may be difficult to remove. Mechanically removed any caked deposits.

Remove filters and clean separately. Rinse with soapy water (eg 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 (eg 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. Add 1 L of household ammonia (3% active ingredient) per 100 L water while filling the tank. Circulate through the system and spray a small quantity through the boom then allow to stand for several hours. Rinse with soapy water or water plus 0.25% wetting agent. 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.

14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:

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

15 REPLANTING INTERVALS:

CropTime
Labelled crops0 days.
All other crops9 months for rates up 2.5 kg/ha.
All other crops18 months for rates > 2.5 kg/ha.

If in doubt delay planting sensitive plants until the appearance of susceptible weeds as this indicates that the residue has probably dissipated.

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: Heavier soil types require higher rates.

Soil pH: Increasing soil pH decreases the rate of breakdown.

Soil organic matter: Increasing levels of organic matter requires higher rates.

Soil moisture at application: On dry soils weed control may be reduced if irrigation or rain is not received within 7-10 days of application. Shallow mechanical incorporation under dry conditions often improves weed control.

On moist soils the herbicide is bonded to soil particles and good weed control should ensue.

IN waterlogged conditions simazine may be hydrolysed resulting in loss of active constituent and penetration into the root zone is reduced which may result in poor weed control.

Where there is complete cover of stubble on the ground, 30-40% of the applied simazine may be lost (absorbed).
