General Instructions


Cheminova Respond Herbicide is a member of the cyclohexanedione group of herbicides. Cheminova Respond Herbicide has the inhibition of acetyl-coA carboxylase mode of action. For weed resistance management, Cheminova Respond Herbicide is a Group A Herbicide.


Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other Group A 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 Cheminova Respond Herbicide or any other Group A herbicides.


Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is diffi cult to detect prior to use, Cheminova accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant weeds.




Only use sprayers in good working condition with high capacity agitation. Ensure the sprayer is cleaned according to the label instructions on the product used prior to Cheminova Respond Herbicide. Use only clean water for the spray solution. Ensure that all in-line strainer and nozzle screens in the sprayer are 100 mesh or coarser. DO NOT use cartridge or disc fi lters after the spray tank outlet, or have two (or more) fi lters directly after each other anywhere in the system. Begin to fi ll spray tank with clean water, and engage agitator. Agitation must be continued throughout the entire mixing and spraying procedure. When the sprayer is half full of water, add Cheminova Respond Herbicide slowly to the spray tank through the tank opening or through a hopper designed to handle granules. The hopper should be dry before adding Cheminova Respond Herbicide granules. - DO NOT premix Cheminova Respond Herbicide.


- Add the total required amount of Cheminova Respond Herbicide from all cartons fi rst, prior to adding other herbicides or Supercharge adjuvant.

- Wait at least one minute after the last of the Cheminova Respond Herbicide has been added to the tank to allow for complete dispersion of the granules.

- Add the recommended broadleaf weed herbicide or insecticide next if tank mixing.

- Slowly add Supercharge to the tank last, in at least 10 times its volume of water especially where a suction (fi lling) probe or hopper is used.

- Continue to fi ll tank to desired level with water.


Spraying Instructions


Ground Equipment

Apply in a spray volume of 50 - 150 litres of water per hectare at a pressure of 250 - 350 kPa to ensure proper dispersion and spraying characteristics of the Cheminova Respond Herbicide spray mix. Use flat fan nozzles such as Spraying Systems 110-01, 110-015, 110-02 or equivalent sizes from other manufacturers. DO NOT use 110-03 or bigger nozzles with Cheminova Respond Herbicide. DO NOT use floodjet nozzles, boomless jets or misters or controlled droplet application equipment. Nozzles may be angled forward 45 to enhance penetration of the crop and provide better coverage. Always ensure that agitation is continued until spraying is completed even if stopped for brief periods of time. If the agitation is stopped for more than 5 minutes re-suspend the spray solution by running on full agitation until the settled particles are fully re-suspended, prior to spraying. The spray mixtures of Cheminova Respond Herbicide and Supercharge may be left overnight without loss of efficacy provided the settled product is completely re-suspended by stirring and/or agitation prior to re-use.


Aerial Equipment

Apply through boom or Micronair units in 20-30 litres of water per hectare. The use of the higher volume is preferred due to more reliable results. Droplet size should be 200 - 250 microns (VMD) and swath width should not be wider than recommended for type of plane and application unit. Weed control following aerial application may not be as good as from ground application.


Crop Safety

Cheminova Respond Herbicide is applied to stressed crops or treatment is followed by stress or if crop plants have less than 2 true leaves (Z12), yellowing or growth retardation may occur. Crops normally recover without loss in yield. Avoid double spraying (overlap).


Plant back Periods

DO NOT plant sorghum, maize or rice for a period of four weeks after application of Cheminova Respond Herbicide. Allow at least 10 days between application of Cheminova Respond Herbicide and any other herbicide, except Metsulfuron (600g/ kg) for which the interval should be 14 days after Cheminova Respond Herbicide. Allow at least 10 days between application of Cheminova Respond Herbicide and any fertiliser treatment.



For broadleaved weed control, Cheminova Respond Herbicide may be mixed as below.

DO NOT mix Cheminova Respond Herbicide with 2,4-D, MCPA amine, dicamba or Metsulfuron-methyl (600 g/kg). Allow at least 10 days between application of Cheminova Respond Herbicide and herbicides containing 2,4-D, MCPA amine, dicamba or similar actives. Allow at least 14 days between application of Cheminova Respond Herbicide and Metsulfuron-methyl 600g/kg. A Cheminova Respond Herbicide should be applied prior to the broadleaved herbicides.



Cheminova Respond Herbicide is compatible with Ambush, Dominex, Imidan, Karate and Saboteur.




DO NOT apply to weeds or crops under stress due to severe frost, drought, water logging, low soil fertility, pre-emergent herbicides, insects or diseases.


DO NOT use boomless jets or misters.


DO NOT apply if rain is expected within a half-hour.


Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

Moderately hazardous to fish. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the product or used containers.


Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

DO NOT apply under weather conditions or from spraying equipment, which may cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants, cropping lands or pastures.


Safety Directions


Harmful if swallowed. Will irritate the eyes. If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. When preparing the spray wear face shield and goggles. Wash hands after use. After each day's use, wash face shield and goggles.



Store in the closed, original container in a dry, well-ventilated locked room or place and away from children, animals, food, feedstuffs, seed and fertilisers. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.



The method of disposal of the container depends on the container type. Read the Storage and Disposal instructions on the label that is attached to the container.
