6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:A selective, translocated herbicide for post emergent control of broad leaved weeds in grasses.
7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:Best results on young actively growing weeds.
Use 0.5 to 1% spray oil.
8 WEATHER:Rainfast in 3 hours.
Delta T and relative humidity: Avoid application when Delta T is greater than
Soil moisture at application:
9 ADJUVANTS:Wetting agents: Use a wetting agent if tank mix partners are not compatible with spray oils.
Spray oils: Apply with a spray oil. Uptake at 0.5% is recommended on the label.
10 WATER QUALITY:Hard water:
Tank life: 1-2 days.
11 COMPATIBILITY:Trace elements.
See HerbiGuide Compatibilities button.
12 EQUIPMENT:Boom sprays:
Carrier volume: 50-100 L/ha recommended on label. If using lower rates then ensure good coverage is still being achieved.
Nozzles: Flat fan. Medium droplet spray recommended on label. If using lower water rates and drift is an issue, use a finer spray.
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. 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.
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. Fill with 1% solution of ammonia and leave for several hours. Triple rinse with water. Or use a commercial spray tank and equipment cleaner.
Rinse nozzles and filters in water and replace.
Don't use chlorine based cleaners.
14 HERBICIDE RESISTANCE:Tolerant plants are expected to occur and may dominate the weed population after repeated applications.
15 REPLANTING INTERVALS:
|All broad leaved crops||Next season on label (e.g. 9 months).|
16 WITHHOLDING PERIODS:
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.

23 PLANT SYMPTOMS:
Low mammalian toxicity. Toxic to aquatic plants.
Details:Poison schedule: S5.
Acute oral LD50: 5000 mg/kg (rat), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50: > 5000 mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin: Slight irritant with prolonged exposure.
Eye: Moderate irritant which may be slow to heal. May cause slight temporary corneal injury.
Vapour inhalation: LC50 > mg/L air (rat).

Isoxaben has caused non malignant liver tumours in animal tests. Not mutagenic. Isoxaben has caused birth defects and interferes with reproduction at levels which are toxic to the mother in animal studies
Liver and kidney effects have occurred in animal studies
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI):
Other Species: Birds: Florasulam is slightly toxic to birds with LD50 of 500 to <2000 mg/kg. Isoxaben is practically non toxic to birds with LD50 >2000 mg/kg.
Fish: Low toxicity LC50 >100 mg/L.
Invertebrates: Low toxicity. EC50 >100 mg/L
Bees: Practically non toxic.
Algae: Very toxic. IC50 <1 mg/L.
Accumulation: Not expected to bioaccumulate. Bioconcentration factor (BCF) is <100.
25 TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:26 FIRST AID:
If SWALLOWED: Do NOT give anything by mouth to a semiconscious or unconscious patient. No emergency treatment is necessary.
If in EYES: Irrigate with plenty of water. Remove contact lenses and irrigate for 15 minutes. See a doctor.
If on SKIN: Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED: Remove patient to fresh air. See a doctor if symptoms develop.
Advice to doctor: Treat symptomatically.
Contact the Poisons Information Centre on 131126.
27 ENVIRONMENTAL FATE:Half life in soil: Isoxaben 150-180 days with mainly microbial degradation.
Half life in water: Florasulam 9-29 days.
