General Instructions

 

Commodore is primarily a soil applied herbicide for the control of certain annual weeds. Plant uptake of Commodore occurs through both the roots and the foliage. The movement of the active constituent clomazone within the plant occurs upward and outwards to the leaf. Clomazone is not downward systemic, or translocated from leaf to leaf.

When using Commodore as a post plant pre-emergence herbicide all emerged weeds should be controlled by application of a non-selective, non-persistent herbicide or by tillage. The soil surface should be left free of large clods of soil that might protect weed seedlings during emergence. Best weed control is achieved when overhead irrigation is used to grow the crop.

Commodore should not be mechanically incorporated into the soil as unacceptable crop injury and variable weed control may occur. When using Commodore Herbicide as a post-emergence herbicide ensure weeds are young and actively growing. 

 

Application

 

Inappropriate application techniques can result in highly visible symptoms of spray drift.
Commodore can be applied as a broadcast or banded application. Use conventional sprayers with either mechanical or bypass agitation. Apply using flat fan nozzles producing medium to coarse droplets, Spray equipment should be properly calibrated to ensure correct application. To minimise off target movement use the lowest pressure and boom height which provides uniform coverage, using 150 to 400 litres per hectare.

 

DO NOT apply to very wet soils or to soils with a rough surface.

Tolerance of other crops (grown through to maturity) should be determined on a small scale before sowing into larger areas. Cover crops, however may be planted anytime but stand reductions may occur in some areas.

 

DO NOT graze, or harvest for food or feed, cover crops.

Replanting: If initial seedlings fail to produce a stand, the crop maybe replanted in fields treated with Commodore alone. Do not retreat field with a second application of Commodore.

 

DO NOT replant treated fields with any crop at intervals, which are inconsistent with the rotational crop guidelines on this label. When tank mixing observe all application precautions, rotational guidelines and replanting instructions of each product label.

 

Off Target Whitening

Commodore can cause whitening of sensitive plants (ie. some species of trees, shrubs, flowers, agronomic crops and fruit and vegetables) by either spray drift or volatilisation. The application and recommendation for the use of this product should be undertaken only by persons adhering to the specific requirements listed in the label. 

 

Mixing

 

Add half the required volume of water in spray tank and start agitation. If tank mixing with wettable powders or Water Dispersible Granules add these first, Liquid Suspensions (ie. Flowables) are added next, and Commodore is added last. Maintain good agitation at all times until spraying is completed.

 

Compatibility

 

Commodore may be tank mixed with other post plant pre-emergent herbicides to broaden the weed control spectrum compared to products applied alone. Lower rates of Commodore may be used when tank mixing. 

 

 

Restraints

 

 

DO NOT apply by aircraft or through irrigation equipment.
DO NOT apply more than a combined total of 2 L/ha on any one paddock in any 12 month period.
DO NOT apply in fog or in conditions conducive to fog.
DO NOT apply to soil intended for seedling transplants, with the exception of tobacco.
DO NOT mechanically incorporate product into soil.
DO NOT apply to soils with both organic carbon content less than 2% and clay content less than 15%, excluding poppy and tobacco crops which have a higher crop tolerance to clomazone at label rates. 

 

Resistance Warning

 

Commodore Herbicide is a member of the Isoxazolidinone group of herbicides. Commodore has the inhibitors of carotenoid biosynthesis mode of action. For weed resistance management Commodore is a Group Q Herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Commodore and other Group Q herbicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by Commodore or other Group Q Herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Commodore or other Group Q Herbicides. 

 

Protection of crops, native and other non-target plants

DO NOT apply under meteorological conditions or from spray equipment, which could be expected to cause spray drift onto nearby susceptible plants, adjacent crops, crop lands or pastures.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers, or waterways with the chemical or used containers

 

Safety Directions

 

Harmful if inhaled or swallowed. Will irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. DO NOT inhale vapour. When opening the container and preparing spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing), elbow-length nitrile gloves and face shield or goggles. When using the prepared spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and elbow length nitrile gloves. If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. Wash hands after use. After each day's use, wash gloves, face shield or goggles and contaminated clothing. 

 

Storage

DO NOT store near (or allow to contact) fertilisers, fungicides or pesticides. Store in the closed, original container in a well ventilated area, as cool as possible. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Store in a locked room or place away from children, animals, food, feed stuffs, seed and fertilisers.

 

Disposal

Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on-site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.

For refillable containers: Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves and return to point of supply for refill or storage.
