General Instructions

 

Mixing

 

Before opening, carefully read Directions for Use, Precautionary and Protection Statements, Storage and Disposal, Safety Directions and First Aid instructions. Use only at recommended growth stages of crops and weeds. Do not use on crops other than recommended.

 

Application

 

BOOM SPRAYER

Apply 50-200 litres (WA: 50 to 100 litres) of water per hectare. Calibrate the machine before use to ensure that the correct application rate is obtained. Check height of boom above the crop to ensure that the spray is evenly distributed. A minimum of 160 litres and preferably 200 litres of water per hectare is recommended where the weed infestation is heavy or the crop cover is dense.

 

DO NOT use rain-drop or air-induction nozzles as coverage of weeds may not be adequate.

 

AERIAL APPLICATION

Apply a minimum of 22 litres of water per hectare. Markers should always move upwind before aircraft passes overhead. Application by micronaire equipment may give variable results.

 

Equipment Maintenance and Usage

After use, wash equipment thoroughly and rise several times prior to re-use. Wash sprayer thoroughly with clean water after use. If using tank mixes with Amicide 625 or MCPA 500 apply with equipment that will not be used in 2,4-D and MCPA susceptible crops, particularly cotton and vines.

 

Compatibility

This product may be mixed in the spray tank with one of the following herbicides or insecticides in wheat and barley only.

 

Diclofop methyl, Omethoate, Chlorpyrifos, dimethoate, endosulfan, 2,4-D Amine 625, MCPA 500 Herbicide, Chlorsulfuron, Metsulfuron, Cheminova Pelican 500SC Herbicide (difl ufenican), Glyphosate, Dicamba 500.

 

As formulations of other manufacturers products are beyond the control of Cheminova, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

 

Protect Property

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre (Phone Australia 13 11 26). If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water.

 

Restraints

 

DO NOT apply by mister machines.

 

DO NOT apply if crops or weeds are stressed due to excessively dry or moist conditions.

 

DO NOT apply to diseased or frost affected crops or turf or if frosts are imminent.

 

DO NOT apply when rain is expected within 3 hours.

 

DO NOT apply to Lucerne crops or clover based pastures or turf in temperatures above 20C or when temperatures above 20°C may follow for some days after application.

 

Resistance Warning

 

Cheminova Firefighter Herbicide is a member of the nitriles group of herbicides. Cheminova Firefighter Herbicide has the inhibitors of photosynthesis at photosystem II mode of action. For weed resistance management Cheminova Firefighter Herbicide is a Group C herbicide.

 

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to Cheminova Firefighter Herbicide 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 this product 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 from the failure of Cheminova Firefighter Herbicide to control resistant weeds.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

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

 

Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

Drift Warning: 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.

 

Note: Maximum daily temperatures at or above 20C at application, or on days following treatment may result in seedling mortality and established plants may be damaged.

 

Safety Directions

 

Product is poisonous if inhaled or swallowed. May irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale spray mist. When preparing spray wear elbow-length PVC gloves and face-shield. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water.
