6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:A selective, pre and post-emergence herbicide for controlling various broad-leaved weeds and grasses mainly in turf, onions, poppies and beet crops
7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:Check MRL's are in place if exporting produce.
Ensure even coverage.
8 WEATHER:Rainfast in 6 hours.
Inversions: Avoid application during low level inversions as excessive drift may occur.
Delta T and relative humidity: Avoid application when Delta T is greater than
9 ADJUVANTS:Wetting agents: Do not use wetting agent in most situations as more crop damage may occur.
Spray oils: Do not use oils.
10 WATER QUALITY:Hard water:
Tank life: Use soon after mixing and keep agitated as it tends to settle out.
11 COMPATIBILITY:Trace elements.
Compatible with ammonium nitrate, liquid boron, liquid copper, liquid magnesium, liquid manganese, liquid zinc,
See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.
12 EQUIPMENT:Boom sprays:
Carrier volume: 100-500 L/ha.
Nozzles: Flat fan.
Pressure: 150-400 kPa.
Droplet size: Best results with a fine spray of 180-200 micron VMD.
Filters size: 50 mesh, 0.3 mm or larger.
13 SPRAYER DECONTAMINATION:Clean Up:
Remove filters and clean separately.
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.
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.
14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:Tolerant plants are expected to occur and may dominate the weed population after repeated applications.
15 REPLANTING INTERVALS:
|Other crops||6 months|
16 WITHHOLDING PERIODS:
|Beet|| ||Not required when used as directed.|
|Poppy|| ||Not required when used as directed.|
|Turf||Grazing||Long. Do graze or feed clippings to animals.|
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. Respirators are not normally required.
19 SOIL:Soil texture:
Soil organic matter:
Soil moisture at application: Moist soil required for good weed control with pre emergence treatments.
20 MODE OF ACTION:Diverse sites of action.
Uptake and translocation:Physiological effects:
Residual Life and Breakdown:
Beets: Slight foliage distortion to beet may occur following treatment.
Varietal sensitivities:Turf: On new varieties treat a small area first to establish the tolerance. Don't use on golf or bowling greens. Do NOT use on common or hybrid couch grass.
Effect on Clover Species:Reduces clover stands by 40 to 60%.
Effect on Medic Species:Effect on Lucerne:
Effect on Native Plants:
