General Instructions

 

This product is a post-emergence contact herbicide, which may provide residual control of wild radish up to 4 weeks after application.

 

Apply Nimble Herbicide immediately after mixing. Do not allow to stand in the spray tank overnight.

 

Optimum results will be obtained if good soil moisture exists at and after application and weeds are not stressed.

 

Some pre-emergence herbicides, such as atrazine, can cause stress to certain crops resulting in an increase in crop damage when using this product. Crops which are particularly sensitive are lucerne and subterranean clover.

 

Temperature Warning

Do not apply Nimble if frosts are imminent. Frost causes stress on crops and weeds and could result in increased crop effects and/or decreased weed control. To ensure good results Nimble should only be applied once the weeds and crop are no longer under stress from the frost conditions.

Avoid application when maximum daily temperatures above 20C occur, or are likely to occur for a few days after application, as increased crop damage may result.

 

Crop Tolerance

 

Cereals

After application some transient crop yellowing may occur. This usually appears as yellow or white banding on leaves. Provided the crop is not under stress from pre-emergent herbicide, root disease, insect damage, frost, dry or excessively moist conditions, the development of the crop and subsequent growth will be unaffected.

 

Lucerne

Warning

The tolerance of lucerne varieties to Nimble can vary with rate of application, soil type, crop health, stage of growth and degree of moisture and temperature stress. Nimble may result in transient crop yellowing and suppression of growth with a resultant initial reduction in dry matter. For this reason we recommend application prior to the 8 trifoliate leaf stage. However, under normal growing conditions subsequent growth and seed yield should not be affected. Crop damage may be increased if rates higher than 500mL/ha are used and in areas where spray overlapping has occurred.

 

Under normal growing conditions, the following lucerne have shown acceptable levels of foliage tolerance to Nimble applied at 400 mL/ha: Hunter River, Nova and Dekalb 185.

 

Varieties not listed should be tested before using Nimble over large areas. Consult your local Cheminova representative for advice on specific varieties.

 

Subterranean clover

Warning

The tolerance of subterranean clover varieties to Nimble can vary with rate of application, soil type, crop health, stage of growth and degree of moisture and temperature stress. Nimble may result in transient crop yellowing and suppression of growth with an initial reduction in dry matter. For this reason we recommend application prior to the 8 trifoliate leaf stage. However, under normal growing conditions subsequent growth and seed yield should not be affected. Crop damage may be increased if rates higher than 500 mL/ha are used and in areas where spray overlapping has occurred.

 

Under normal growing conditions, the following varieties have shown acceptable levels of foliage tolerance to Nimble applied at 500 mL/ha: Daliak, Dalkeith, Denmark, Goulburn, Karridale, Leura, Mt. Barker, Nungarin, Rosedale, Seaton Park, Trikkala and Woogenellup.

The variety Junee has shown increased sensitivity to Nimble so care should be taken if this variety is part of the pasture sward.

 

The effects of Nimble on subterranean clover seed yield have been tested on the following varieties. Under normal growing conditions they show acceptable levels of tolerance to Nimble applied at 500 mL/ha. However, higher rates may reduce seed yield under conditions of low weed pressure: Denmark, Goulburn, Larissa, Nungarin, Seaton Park, Trikkala and Woogenellup. Varieties not listed should be tested before using Nimble over large areas. Consult your local Cheminova representative for advice on specific varieties.

 

Other Clovers

Warning

The tolerance of clover varieties to Nimble can vary with rate of application, soil type, crop health, stage of growth and degree of moisture and temperature stress. Nimble may result in transient crop yellowing and suppression of growth with a resultant initial reduction in dry matter. For this reason we recommend application prior to the 8 trifoliate leaf stage. However, under normal growing conditions subsequent growth and seed yield should not be affected. Crop damage may be increased if rates higher than 500 mL/ha are used and in areas where spray overlapping has occurred. The effect on seed yield of other clovers has not been determined.

 

The following varieties of clover have shown increased sensitivity to Nimble: Big Bee, Sacromonte (Berseem), Haifa (White), Zulu (Arrowleaf), Kyambro, Lupers and Maral (Persian).

 

Care should be exercised if these clovers are part of the pasture sward. Varieties not listed should be tested before using Nimble over large areas. Consult your local Cheminova representative for advice on specifi c varieties.

 

Subsequent Crops

To reduce effect on subsequent susceptible crops (e.g. canola), ensure thorough cultivation of soil prior to the sowing of these crops.

 

Mixing

 

To ensure even mixing, half fi ll the spray tank with clean water and add the required amount of product. Agitate thoroughly while carrying out spray operations. Reseal part-used container immediately after use.

 

Application

 

Boom Sprayer

A minimum of 50L water/ha should be used, however, for optimum results, water rates of 70-100L/ha are recommended. Increase the water volume where weed infestation is heavy or the crop cover is dense. Complete coverage of weeds is essential. Higher water volumes (up to 100L/ha) will ensure faster activity of the product on the weeds but may increase the symptoms of crop damage. The following settings are examples which will ensure excellent coverage of exposed weeds:

 

Controlled Droplet Application (CDA)

Insufficient information is available to recommend the application of this product by CDA.

 

Warning

The rubber components present in some spraying units may be affected by exposure to the solvents in Nimble. To reduce this risk it is recommended that the spray unit be thoroughly washed with a boom cleaner and fresh water after use.

 

Aircraft

Insufficient information is available to recommend the application of this product by air.

 

Compatibility

The following herbicide products are physically compatible with Nimble as two-way mixtures in the spray tank, but should only be used for the crops specified, and only when the crop is also specified on the label of the compatible product: (See below for list of compatible insecticides)

When mixing Nimble with other herbicides, crop yellowing may be enhanced. When mixing with Cheminova Diclofop methyl, Wildcat110EC or Tristar Advance some reduction in the effi cacy and speed of action of these products may occur. When mixing with Cheminova Quinella or Fuzilier some reduction in the effi cacy and speed of action of these products and Nimble may occur.

 

In tank-mixtures with Metsulfuron and Chlorsulfuron, rates of Nimble higher than 500 mL/ha may cause signifi cant crop damage.

 

If the crop is stressed, the application of the herbicide tank-mixtures may cause yield reduction.

 

When mixing with Cadence a temporary wilting may be evident in some crops after application.

 

The mixture of Nimble and simazine should be applied during winter to lucerne which is not actively growing. This mixture may result in an increased crop effect but this can be reduced if the lucerne is grazed or cut before spraying. DO NOT mix Nimble with Cheminova Haloxyfop 520 .

Growers should seek advice before spraying recently released cereal varieties.

 

This product may be mixed in the spray tank with one of the following insecticides according to the directions for the insecticide product: Cyren ( 500 g/L chlorpyrifos) , deltamethrin (27.5g/L product), Danadim (400 g/L dimethoate), Cheminova Alpha-cypermethrin (100g/L product), Omethoate (290g/L product), Cheminova Bifenthrin and endosulfan.

 

Use the recommended rates for Nimble and its tank-mix partner as well as the surfactant recommendation of the tank-mix partner. Read the label of the tank-mix partner before mixing and using the tank mixture. If another herbicide is applied as a tank mix, observe the plantback restrictions on that label.

 

Warning

DO NOT use crop oils with Nimble or Nimble tank mixtures in cereals. As formulations of other manufacturers' products are beyond the control of Cheminova, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

 

Resistance Warning

 

Nimble Herbicide is a member of the nitrile and nicotinanilide groups of herbicides. Nimble is an inhibitor of photosynthesis at photosystem II and carotenoid biosynthesis. For weed resistance management, Nimble is a Group C, F herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Nimble and other Group C, F 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 Nimble or other Group C, F 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 Nimble 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

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. Wash sprayer thoroughly after use.
