General Instructions

 

 

Fuzilier Selective Herbicide is rapidly absorbed by leaves and green stems (is rainfast within one hour) and translocated throughout the plant. It accumulates at growing points, both above ground and in the roots, rhizomes and stolons of grass weeds. Weed growth and hence competition with the crop stops within 48 hours. First symptoms are not evident for at least a week after application.

 

Growing points turn brown and rot, shoot tips can be easily pulled out after 2 to 3 weeks. Young leaves turn yellow or redden soon after, but more mature leaves may remain green for extended period.

 

Weed control is usually complete 3 to 5 weeks after spraying. If treated area is to be grazed following application with Fuzilier, allow 7 days to elapse before introducing stock to ensure maximum weed control.

 

Stress Conditions

Moisture stress is a particular problem, whether caused by drought or short term stresses, resulting from a combination of high temperatures and low humidity or by prior use of pre-emergence herbicides resulting in stunted root growth of weeds.

 

An irrigation or an effective rainfall must occur immediately before or after spraying if these conditions exist. Other stress situations to avoid include frost, waterlogging and extended cold conditions.

 

DO NOT spray if any stress conditions are evident just prior to application.

 

Mixing

 

Add the required amount of product directly to the spray tank which should be 50 to 75% full. The agitation system should be running during mixing and spraying. If agitation ceases and settlement occurs, agitate thoroughly before spraying. Adjuvants are essential and the following may be utilised: Agral at 350 mL/100 L of water OR BS1000 at 200 mL/100L of water OR 2 L DC Trate/100 L of water OR BS1000 at 200 mL plus 2 L Ulvapron/100 L of water, unless otherwise stated.

 

Time of Application

 

To obtain the maximum benefits of this product, weeds should be sprayed when young and actively growing. Grasses establishing from seed should be sprayed before tillering occurs. Higher rates will be necessary once tillering commences.

 

For annual grass weeds, spraying must take place before the late tillering stage if a complete kill is desired.

 

Unless otherwise specified in the Critical Comments application may be made at any stage of crop growth but allowing sufficient time for the prescribed withholding period.

 

Method Of Application

Good spray coverage is essential for maximum results. Spray equipment must be checked and calibrated accurately prior to application. Boom spraying: Check height of boom above the target weeds to ensure the spray is evenly distributed and a double overlap pattern is obtained. When spraying grass weed targets, an even distribution of droplets with no less than 50% of the spray volume in the 150 to 300 micron range is desirable.

 

Broadacre use: Water volumes per hectare will depend on nozzle selection and should be in the range of 50 to 100 L/ha. 110º fan nozzles are preferred for use with this product. Use higher volumes of spray to achieve full coverage of dense, vigorous weed infestations.

 

Band spraying: Ensure sufficient coverage by using two nozzles (one either side of the plant row) when the crop is beyond the 2 leaf stage.

 

Aerial Application: Flying height, pressure, nozzle size and positioning of the aircraft should be such to minimise spray drift.

 

Avoid spraying in high winds or under temperature inversion conditions. Special care must be taken to avoid drift onto adjacent crops such as cereals, maize or sorghum. Apply in not less than 30 L/ha.

 

Spot Spraying: On smaller areas use a knapsack sprayer suitably calibrated.

 

Sprayer Cleanup

After use, clean equipment thoroughly and rinse several times prior to re-use.

 

Compatibility

This product is compatible with Agral and BS1000, DC Trate, Ulvapron, Sertin, Imidan, Karate and Pirimor.

 

DO NOT tank mix with other pesticides without prior reference to a Cheminova representative.

 

Restraints

 

DO NOT treat weeds that are not actively growing or are growing under stress. Under such conditions the biological processes of the weeds slow down and Cheminova Fuzilier transport in the weed can be drastically reduced, resulting in a incomplete kill or suppression only of the weeds.

 

DO NOT allow annual grass weeds to reach the late tillering stage befote application.

 

DO NOT apply at flowering stage of weeds.

 

DO NOT apply under conditions of high temperature, low humidity or where weeds are drought stressed.

 

Resistance Warning

 

 

Fuzilier Selective Herbicide is a member of the aryloxyphenoxypropionate (fops) group of herbicides. Fuzilier has the inhibitors of acetyl coA carboxylase mode of action. For weed resistance management Fuzilier is a Group A herbicide.

 

Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Fuzilier and other inhibitors of acetyl coA carboxylase 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 Fuzilier or other inhibitors of acetyl coA carboxylase 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 Fuzilier to control resistant weeds.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

Moderately hazardous to fish. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical 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/crops, cropping lands or pastures.

 

DO NOT plant cereal crops for a period of 12 weeks after application of Cheminova Fuzilier.

 

Safety Directions

 

May irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. When preparing spray and using the product wear elbow-length PVC gloves and face shield. If product or spray on skin, immediately wash area with soap and water. 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. After each day's use wash gloves, face shield and contaminated clothing.

 

Storage

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

 

Disposal

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 (contact drumMuster Collection agency or Local Council for collection sites). 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. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.
