General Instructions


Minimum Recropping Periods

Cereal rye, medics, triticale, wheat, maize, soybeans: May be planted at any time after application of Multitude. Barley, chickpeas, clover, field peas, lucerne, oats and peanuts: Allow 3 months to elapse after application before sowing these crops.


Canola, cotton, faba beans, fenugreek, lathyrus, lentils, lupins, serradella, sorghum, sunflowers, Popany vetch: On deep soils (with no impermeable sub-horizon), cotton, sorghum and sunflowers may be planted 3 months after application of Multitude. Canola, faba beans and lupins are more sensitive and may be planted 9 months after application of Multitude. On shallow, duplex, low organic matter soils with an impermeable sub-horizon within the root zone (30 cm deep or less), these crops should NOT be planted until 2 years after application of Multitude.




Quarter fill the spray tank and add the required amount of Multitude Herbicide. Add the remaining water with the agitator running. Add Uptake Spraying Oil or the wetting agent last (if used). Maintain agitation during spraying.


Only mix sufficient spray solution for immediate use and avoid storing. When tank mixing: Multitude should be added to the tank first, followed by wettable powders or other dry flowable formulations, suspension concentrates (flowables), aqueous concentrates (eg. Lontrel* Herbicide), emulsifiable concentrates (eg. Verdict* 520 Herbicide) and then add Uptake Spraying Oil or wetting agent last (if used).




Apply Multitude in 50 to 150 litres of water per hectare, through an accurately calibrated boom sprayer.


For aircraft application apply Multitude in no less than 30 L/ha of water through accurately calibrated equipment.


The product should be applied by an accurately calibrated ground rig or aircraft delivering medium quality spray based on BCPC specifications and in accordance with ASAE standard S-572.


Best results are achieved where applications are made on warm (greater than 5C), sunny days applying more than 50 L/ha of total spray volume (preferably more than 75 L/ha) and where spray coverage is maximised.



Always allow 7 days between application of a grass herbicide and Multitude in chickpeas and field peas.


In lentils, adjuvant, broadleaf or grass herbicide, insecticide and foliar fertiliser tank mixes may result in transient height reduction, crop discolouration and delayed flowering, although yields are normally unaffected. However, stress conditions after application (eg. frost, drought) may lengthen the time needed for lentils to recover and in years where a dry spring occurs, yields may be suppressed.

Cleaning Spray Equipment

After using Multitude, empty the tank completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the tank using a pressure hose. Drain the tank and clean any filters in the tank, pump, lines and nozzles.


To rinse.

After cleaning the tank as above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and circulate through the pump, lines, hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.


To decontaminate.

Before spraying sensitive crops (which include canola, cotton, faba beans, lupins, sorghum and sunflowers), wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Quarter fill the tank and add an alkali detergent (e.g. SURF, Cold Water SURF Concentrate, Dynamo Matic Concentrate, OMO or DRIVE at 500 mL/100 L of water or the powder equivalent at 500 g/100 L) and circulate throughout the system for at least fifteen minutes. Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean them separately. Finally flush the system with clean water and allow to drain. Chlorine based cleaners are not recommended. Nufarm Tank Cleaner is not recommended.


Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area or, if this is unavailable, onto unused land away from desirable plants and watercourses.




DO NOT apply to plants which may be stressed (not actively growing) due to prolonged periods of extreme temperature (less than 5C or greater than 30C), moisture stress (water-logged or drought affected), poor nutrition or previous herbicide treatment as reduced levels of control may result.


DO NOT apply post-emergence treatments if rain is likely within 4 hours.


DO NOT irrigate (any method) treated crop or pasture for 48 hours after application.


Resistance Warning


Multitude Herbicide is a broadleaf herbicide with no ryegrass activity and is a member of the triazolopyrimidine sulfonanilide (sulfonamide) group of herbicides. The product has the acetolactate synthase (ALS) inhibitor mode of action. For weed resistance management the product is a Group B herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other Group B 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 this product or other Group B herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of the product to control resistant weeds. Strategies to minimise the risk of herbicide resistance are available. Contact your farm chemical supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture, or local Cheminova representative.


Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

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


Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

Refer to MINIMUM RECROPPING PERIODS for crop rotation information. Crops susceptible to Multitude include canola, cotton, faba beans, lupins, sorghum and sunflowers.


DO NOT flood irrigate any treated crop or pasture for 48 hours after application. Where other types of irrigation are used, for example sprinklers, DO NOT irrigate to the point of runoff for at least 48 hours after application.


DO NOT apply to waterlogged soils or if heavy rain is expected within 48 hours of application.


DANGEROUS TO AQUATIC PLANTS AND SUSCEPTIBLE CROPS. DO NOT contaminate dams, waterways or drains with the product or its containers.


DO NOT apply under weather conditions, such as dead calm or excessive wind, or from spraying equipment producing small droplets that may cause spray to drift onto adjacent areas, particularly wetlands, waterbodies, watercourses, susceptible crops or land to be planted with susceptible crops.


Safety Directions


Product will irritate the eyes. When handling the granules avoid contact with eyes. If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. Wash hands after use.



KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Store in the closed, original container in a securely locked, dry, cool, well-ventilated place, out of direct sunlight. DO NOT store near food, feedstuffs, fertilisers or seed. DO NOT dispose of any undiluted chemical on-site.



When the bag is empty, shake any residual material into the spray tank. Shred and bury empty packaging in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the packaging below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty packaging and product should not be burnt.



Sweep up material and contain in a refuse vessel for disposal in the same manner as for containers (see STORAGE AND DISPOSAL section).
