General Instructions


Spray only after good rain and when top soil is moist and when weeds are actively growing. Best results are obtained when good soil moisture has been present since planting. DO NOT apply during dry or waterlogged conditions.


Crop Safety

DO NOT apply this product to Avon, Saia, Barmah and Cassia varieties of oats. Before applying to other varieties of oats, growers should seek advice from Cheminova for crop safety information. Undersown Medics and American Lucerne varieties may be damaged if sprayed. With early and late sown crops damage may occur if spraying is undertaken when temperatures are greater than 18C. Avoid spraying crops prior to May and from mid-August onwards as daily temperatures and weed size may not be satisfactory. Early sown crops should not be sprayed before the onset of frost and cooler weather.


DO NOT apply this product to pasture species other than those stated in the 'Directions for Use'. DO NOT apply to medics and lucerne as damage may occur. DO NOT apply to irrigated pasture or seed crops as damage may occur. DO NOT apply on pastures prior to May or after mid-August or when temperatures are greater than 18C for the day prior to, the day of and for 4 days following application as pasture damage will occur. DO NOT apply prior to or following the use of a grass selective herbicide or simazine in the same season as damage to pasture may occur. DO NOT use in situations where oversowing of pastures may occur. Pastures which contain young species should be sprayed using the lower label rates. Increase product rate as pasture age and size increases. Only apply this product when conditions at and following application are favourable to pasture growth.




Stir product or invert container several times before opening as settling of contents may occur after storage for some weeks. Pour the product into the spray vat through a strainer to remove any dry particles or fl akes, which can occasionally occur under hot storage conditions. Add the full quantity of product to the partly fi lled spray tank while agitating. Fill tank and agitate to ensure thorough mixing. Continue agitation while spraying. Agitate vigorously from the bottom if allowed to stand. Reseal part used containers immediately. If tank mixing, add SALVATION to the spray tank fi rst, then other products. Maintain constant agitation and use immediately.




Ground Application: Boom spray with flat fan nozzles. Ensure good spray coverage is obtained. Aim to apply 50 to 110 L per hectare.


Aircraft Application: Always spray in a cross wind of less than 5 knots, or use smoke generator to indicate air movement. Ensure good spray coverage is obtained. For maximum coverage use fine nozzles. Apply 20 to 30 L per hectare.

Resistance Warning


Cheminova SALVATION Herbicide is a member of the Triazine group of herbicides. This product has the photosystem II photosynthesis mode of action at inhibitor. For weed resistance management SALVATION is a Group C herbicide.Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to SALVATION and other Group C 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 SALVATION or other Group C herbicides.Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result fromthe failure of SALVATION to control resistant weeds. Advice as to strategies and alternative treatments that can be used should be obtained from your local supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture, Primary Industries Department or an Cheminova representative.


Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or water ways with the chemical or used container.


Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

DO NOT use in situations where off-target damage may occur, eg vines, tree crops. If using 2,4-D amine or MCPA apply with equipment which will not be used in hormone susceptible crops, particularly cotton and vines. DO NOT apply under weather conditions or from spraying equipment that may cause spray to drift over nearby susceptible plants or crops, cropping lands or pastures.


Safety Directions


Harmful if swallowed. Avoid contact with skin. Repeated exposure may cause allergic disorders. When using the product wear elbow-length PVC gloves. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water. After each day's use wash gloves.

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.
