GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

 

All Applications

 

Reduce the incidence of “fines” by using the correct nozzles and operating pressures. Replace worn or old nozzles and calibrate equipment on a regular basis.

 

 

Fallow application:

 

Furnace can be applied in fallow prior to the planting of various crops as outlined in the Follow Crops table. Furnace is a pre-emergence herbicide, which is recommended to provide short term (6 to 12 weeks) pre-emergence control of summer germinating grasses and broadleaved weeds in cultivated or uncultivated fallow. A green weed cover of greater than 50% will significantly reduce the length of pre-emergence weed control.

 

Sugarcane application

 

Pre-emergence

 

Where possible, apply to soil two days prior to incorporation. Incorporate with adequate irrigation or rainfall to a minimum depth of 5 cm. Incorporation by flood irrigation may result in loss of weed control. Furnace should be applied to plant or ratoon cane before the cane has emerged. When applying Furnace in moist conditions, allow weeds to germinate prior to application and apply mixed with an appropriate knockdown herbicide. Whenever emerged weeds are present, Furnace should be mixed with an appropriate knockdown herbicide

 

Post-emergence

 

Furnace MUST always be mixed with registered rates of paraquat and applied as a carefully directed inter-row spray to weeds and at the base of the sugarcane stalks, minimizing spray contact with sugarcane foliage. DO NOT add crop oil to this mixture. Other surfactant or adjuvant is not required.

 

Peanut application

 

Pre-emergence:

 

Apply to soil and incorporate with adequate irrigation or rainfall to a minimum depth of 5 cm.

 

Post-emergence:

 

Furnace must always be mixed with an adjuvant as directed in the DIRECTIONS FOR USE section of the label.

 

 

Soil Type:

 

Pre-emergence weed control with Furnace can be limited when applied onto soils with pH <5.0 and/or which contain high concentrations of iron (Fe) and/or aluminium (Al). These situations are common in soil types such as Krasnozems and red brown Ferrosols.

 

 

MIXING

 

Furnace is an aqueous solution. Part fill the spray tank with water, then with agitator running, add the required amount of product, then fill the tank with water. When tank mixing this product with other recommended compatible products, first add the other product to the tank and mix thoroughly before adding this product. For post-emergence applications in peanuts, add adjuvant after the addition of Furnace to the tank.

 

 

No adjuvants or surfactants are required when Furnace is used alone for pre-emergence weed control or with paraquat. DO NOT add crop oil when applied post-emergence with paraquat.

 

 

APPLICATION

 

DO NOT apply by aircraft.

 

 

Fallow application:

 

Apply with boom equipment in not less than 50 L/ha water using flat fan nozzles. Avoid overlap and do not overspray headlands.

 

Sugarcane:

 

Ensure thorough coverage of soil and weeds with well-calibrated spray equipment. Apply in a minimum of 200 L water/ha using a nozzle configuration to generate a medium to coarse spray pattern for pre-emergence applications or medium spray pattern for post-emergence applications. Replace worn or old nozzles and calibrate equipment on a regular basis.

 

Peanuts:

 

Apply with boom equipment in not less than 50 L/ha water using flat fan nozzles. Avoid overlap and do not overspray headlands. For post-emergence applications, Furnace should be applied a minimum of 2 hours before rainfall.

 

 

EQUIPMENT CLEAN-UP

 

Thoroughly flush all spray equipment with water following the use of Furnace and before use with other products.

 

COMPATIBILITY

 

Furnace is compatible with Pendimethalin 330, Stomp+ Xtra, atrazine, glyphosate, paraquat, paraquat + diquat, metsulfuron, Triclopyr 600, and 2,4-D.

 

It is NOT compatible with dicamba.

 

 

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

GROUP

B

HERBICIDE

 

Furnace Herbicide is a member of the imidazolinone group of herbicides. The product has the inhibitors-of-acetolactate-synthase (ALS) mode of action. For weed resistance management, the product is a Group B herbicide. Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to this 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 Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant weeds.

 

FOLLOW CROPS

 

Under conditions which do not favour breakdown of this product, carry-over soil residues can affect susceptible follow crops. As environmental and agronomic factors make it impossible to eliminate all risks associated with this product, rotational crop injury is always possible. The following minimum re-cropping intervals (months after application) should be observed.
