General Instructions

 

Application

 

For Boom Application: Apply by a properly calibrated boom spray using not less than 50 litres of water per hectare unless indicated otherwise in the Critical Comments column.

 

For Aerial Application: Apply at least 25 litres total spray volume per hectare. The aircraft should fly as low as practical under the prevailing conditions to minimise drift.

 

For High Volume Application: Apply a minimum 1500 litres per hectare.

 

For Knapsack Application: A 15 litre knapsack treats 150 square metres.

 

MIMOSA CONTROL

Broadacre application: Apply 2-2.4 L/ha water in 60 litres of water per hectare. Helicopter application preferred.

 

High Volume application: Apply 400 mL in 110 L water using ground equipment. Thoroughly wet all leaves and stems of the plant.

 

Basal Bark application: Apply 60 mL in 15 L water to plants of less than 5 cm basal diameter. Spray liberally all around the base and 25-40 cm up the stem.

 

Cut Stump application: Apply 60 mL in 15 L water on plants up to 10 cm basal diameter. Cut trees as close to ground level as is possible and spray the freshly cut surface before the sap dries.

 

Note: A temporary wilting may be evident in crops after application. If seasonal conditions are late or dry seek further advice before spraying as damage may result from spraying crops under these conditions. Growers should seek advice before spraying recently released cereal varieties. Certain maize varieties may develop clubfoot of the prop roots.

Resistance

 

Warning

Cheminova DICAMBA 500 SL SL Selective Herbicide is a member of the Benzoic acid group of herbicides. DICAMBA 500 SL SL has the Disruptor of plant cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance management DICAMBA 500 SL is a Group I Herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to DICAMBA 500 SL and other Group I herbicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any weed population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by DICAMBA 500 SL or any other Group I Herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is diffi cult to detect prior to use, Cheminova Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of DICAMBA 500 SL to control resistant weeds. Spray when weeds are young and actively growing, and unless stated otherwise, before the 3-5 leaf stage.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

DO NOT use container for any other purpose.

 

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

 

Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

DO NOT apply under weather conditions or from spraying equipment that may cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures. Spray equipment must be calibrated accurately prior to working on crops. Keep container sealed (airtight) when not in use. To prevent damage, DO NOT permit drift or vapour or spray mist to come into contact with fruit and ornamental trees, vines, vegetables, fl owers, tobacco or any other field crop. Minimise spray drift by using low pressure and nozzles which DO NOT give a fine droplet size. DO NOT apply this product on or near desirable trees or plants or in locations where the chemical may be washed or moved into contact with their roots. DO NOT use in high wind. All spray equipment must be thoroughly washed out after use and must not be used for spraying horticultural crops. DO NOT use at higher rate then recommended.

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.store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank.
