General Instructions


FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is a non-volatile, water soluble product with non-selective herbicidal activity against many annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and grasses. FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide may be used for weed control in agricultural land prior to sowing any edible or non-edible crop, but not prior to transplanting tomatoes. FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is absorbed by plant foliage and green stems. It is inactivated immediately in the soil and does not provide residual weed control. FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide moves throughout the plant from the point of contact to and into the root system.

Visible effects on annual weeks take 3-7 days, but on perennial weeds may not be obvious for 2-3 weeks or longer in some cases. Visible effects of control may be delayed by cool or cloudy weather at and following treatment. FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide will control emerged weeds only, and provides no residual weed control. Apply treatments to weeds that have at least one true leaf (broadleaf weeds) or two leaves (grasses) to provide an adequate surface area for herbicide uptake.




To ensure herbicide absorption. DO NOT disturb weeds by cultivation, sowing or grazing for 1 day after treatment of annual weeds and 7 days for perennial weeds, except where noted.


Resistant Weeds Warning


FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is a member of the Glycines group of herbicides. FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide has the inhibition of EPSP synthase mode of action. For weed resistance management FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is a Group M herbicide.

Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide and other inhibitors of EPSP synthase mode of action 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 FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide or other inhibitors of EPSP synthase herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, FMC Crop Protection Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide to control resistant weeds.


Crop Establishment


FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is recommended for control of emerged weeds prior to crop establishment. Suitable cultivation and/or sowing operations are required to provide seedbed conditions satisfactory for crop germination and development. Spraying early to control young weeds will favour preparation of suitable seedbeds. On friable soils and where there is only light cover of young weeds, sowing may proceed satisfactorily from one day after spraying. In situations of heavy weed growth, sowing should be delayed until weed decay and soil conditions allow formation of a satisfactory seedbed. 

Incorporation of green or decaying vegetation and roots into the seedbed by cultivation or sowing may cause retarded crop emergence, particularly in cold and/or wet conditions. Vegetation may be reduced by grazing and weed decay may be assisted by cultivation to leave trash on the surface. In marginal seedbed conditions, take care to achieve seeding depth and avoid use of pre-emergence herbicides where label directions advise risk of retarded crop emergence.




For boom application, water volumes should not be less that 6 litres per 1 kg of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide. Reduced results may occur if water containing soil is used, eg water from ponds and unlined ditches, or if hard water containing calcium salts is used. Do not mix, store or apply this product or spray solutions of this product in galvanised steel or unlined steel containers or spray tanks, since a highly flammable gas mixture may be formed. Use stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper, fibreglass, plastic-lined containers or spray tanks.

Spray tanks, pumps, line and nozzles should be thoroughly cleaned with clean water following application to prevent corrosion. Ensure the spray tank is free of any residue of previous spray materials. Use spray solutions promptly and certainly within 5 days, since a gradual loss of activity will occur. Good agitation is required, particularly under cold conditions, to ensure all of the FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide dissolves when first added to the tank.


Full Agitation in Pre-filled Spray Tank

• Fill the tank with one-half the required amount of clean water and set the pump on full agitation.

• Add the required amount of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide slowly to ensure that it is well dispersed throughout the tank and none collects on the bottom. Suggested rate is 10 kg in 2-3 minutes.

• Continue water addition and fully agitate until all the FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is completely dissolved.


Surfactant Addition

Additional surfactant is not required except where the rate of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is less than 6g/L when applied by boom.

Rate: Add Turbo Plus at 100mL per 100L water. Results with other surfactants may be variable. Do not mix with spraying oils, agricultural chemicals or any other material except as directed on the label.


Tank Mixtures


FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide may be tank mixed with the following herbicides, insecticides and additives. Read and follow all label directions, restraints, plant-back periods, withholding periods, regional use restrictions and safety directions for the tank-mix products.


Mixing Instructions For All Tank Mixtures

1. Fill the spray tank 1/3 to 1/2 full with clean water and start agitation.

2. Add FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide. Mix thoroughly and continue water addition.

3. Where crystalline ammonium sulphate is recommended, wash the ammonium sulphate through a top mesh screen into the tank and mix thoroughly.

4. Add recommended herbicide/insecticide/additive to the spray tank and mix thoroughly.

5. Add surfactant near the end of the filling process to minimise foaming.

Always maintain adequate agitation during application and use the tank-mix promptly.


Tank Mixtures - Herbicides

Atrazine* flowable or granular (Agricultural uses only. DO NOT apply the tank-mix for control of Barnyard grass or Liverseed grass), 2,4-D Ester, dicamba, Express, triclopyr (600g/L), chlorsulfuron, simazine* Flowable or granular, Oust®, Yield®, Stomp® 330E, Tillmaster® CT, metsulfuron, triasulfuron 750 WG, Flandor® 500, LVE MCPA, and oxyfluorfen.

*Ammonium sulphate may improve the performance of tank mixtures of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide and atrazine and simazine. See directions below. 


The addition of oxyfluorfen at 75mL/ha to recommended rates of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide prior to planting wheat or barley will improve knockdown and increase the speed at which treated weeds develop visible symptoms of phytotoxicity.


Tank Mixtures - Additives

Ammonium Sulphate (crystalline or liquid 500g/L)

RATE: 2L or 1kg/100L spray solution The addition of crystalline ammonium sulphate to FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide, when used to control ANNUAL weeds, MAY improve the performance of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide under adverse environmental conditions such as cool, cloudy weather. Ammonium sulphate may also improve the performance of tank mixtures of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide and atrazine and simazine. Use only crystalline or liquid (500g/L) ammonium sulphate, NOT prilled or granular forms. Ammonium sulphate may be corrosive to metal parts of the sprayer. Thoroughly flush tanks, pumps and nozzles with water after use.


Pulse Penetrant

RATE: 20 mL/10L spray solution. Add when treating Bracken (boom application).


Wetter TX surfactant

RATE: 20 mL/10L spray solution.

Add when treating Annual ryegrass in spring (from beginning of August to end of October). Silvergrass and perennial grasses – see critical comments section. Wetter TX is not a general purpose surfactant and should be used only where recommended.


Tank Mixtures - Insecticides

This product is compatible with the following insecticides: Dimethoate, Imidan®, Le-Mat®, Lorsban® 500, Metasystox®, Perfekthion® EC 400, Sumithion® ULV, and emulsifiable concentrates of dimethoate and fenitrothion. Other insecticides have not been tested. 




FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is a non-selective translocated herbicide. Direct spray contact, or even slight drift, may cause severe injury or destruction of any growing crops or other desirable plants including trees. Clean all equipment after use by thoroughly washing with water.


Boom Equipment

For broadacre application, a spray volume of 60L/ha or less is recommended for optimum performance. Fan nozzles equipment is recommended, using pressures in the range 240-280 kPa. Boom height must be set to ensure double overlap of nozzle patterns at the top of the weed canopy.


High Volume Application

(e.g. Knapsack/Handgun Equipment)

The dilution rate is given as g/litre eg: 5 grams FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide per 1 litre of water. This is equal to 75g FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide per 15 litres of water or 500g per 100 litres of water.

Adjust equipment to achieve an even spray pattern. Apply to ensure complete and uniform wetting of all foliage. For handgun equipment, a D6 spray tip (Spraying Systems Australia P/L) or equivalent and an operating pressure of 400-700 kPa are recommended.


Aerial Equipment

Aerial equipment may be used to apply FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide only in pasture or fallow situations prior to establishment of field crops, fodder crops, or new pasture and for pre-harvest application to sorghum and cotton crops. DO NOT use in intensive horticultural cropping areas.

Use recommended rates of FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide specified in this label up to a maximum limit of 2.1 kg/ha. For Micronair and boom equipment, apply in a minimum spray volume of at least 20L/ha. Droplets with an average size (VMD) of 250-350 micron diameter are recommended. Swath width should be 15-17m. Thoroughly wash aircraft, especially landing gear, after each day of spraying to remove herbicide residues. 


Application on hilly terrain:

As spraying height may vary, to maximise target contact, increase water volume to 30-80L/ha and increase droplet size to at least 300 micron VMD.


Application under summer conditions:

High temperatures and/or low relative humidity cause excessive evaporation of spray droplets that may reduce results. When temperature reaches 25oC, increase water volume to at least 30L/ha and increase droplet size to at least 300 micron VMD. DO NOT apply FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide by aircraft when temperature is above 30oC.


Avoid Drift:

DO NOT use with spraying equipment or under meteorological conditions which could be expected to cause spray drift onto nearby susceptible plants, adjacent crops, crop lands or pastures. Equipment settings which produce fine droplets (150 microns or less), winds over 8 km/h, inversion conditions, still air and hot dry days all contribute to drift.


Application Checklist


• Do not treat weeds under poor growing or dormant conditions (such as occur in drought, waterlogging, disease, insect damage or following frosts) as reduced weed control may result. Reduced efficacy may also occur when treating weeds heavily covered with dust or silt.

• Do not add additional surfactant or mix with any other agricultural chemicals, herbicide oils or other materials except as specifically directed on this label.

• FMC Glyder Dry 700 Herbicide is absorbed by plant foliage and green stems. Rainfall soon after application may wash the herbicide off the weeds, particularly if the weeds are not actively growing, under stress or conditions of low light intensity or darkness. 

• Delay treatment of plants wet with dew or rain if water droplets run off when plants are disturbed.

• Do not disturb treated weeds by cultivation sowing or grazing for one day after treatment of annual weeds and 7 days for perennial weeds, to ensure herbicide adsorption except where noted.

• A Withholding Period for grazing stock is not required. However, it is recommended that grazing of treated plants be delayed (as recommended above) to ensure herbicide absorption. Certain plants such as, Soursob, St John’s Wort and Bracken, may be naturally toxic to stock. Where known toxic plants are present, grazing should be delayed until complete browning of treated plants has occurred.



Protection of Crops, Native and other Non-Target Plants


Avoid contact with foliage, green stems or fruit of crops, desirable plants and trees, since severe injury or destruction may result.

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.



Protection of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans and Environment


DO NOT contaminate dams, rivers or streams with the product or used container. DO NOT apply to weeds growing in or over water. DO NOT spray across open bodies of water.


Storage and Disposal


Store in the closed, original container in a dry, cool, well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight. Do not contaminate seed, feed or foodstuff. Shake empty bag into spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Puncture or shred and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers below 500mm 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.
