General Instructions

 

Quinella Upgrade Herbicide is an emulsifiable concentrate herbicide used post emergence for the control of certain grass weeds in specified broadleaf crops. Quinella Upgrade Herbicide is a systemic herbicide, which is rapidly absorbed and readily translocates from the treated foliage to the root system and growing points of the plant. Applications made to grass weeds stressed due to insufficient moisture or cold temperatures may result in unsatisfactory control.

 

Timing

For maximum benefit, weeds should be sprayed when young and actively growing.  Application may be made at any stage of crop growth (except to curcurbit crops), but sufficient time must be allowed for the prescribed withholding period to expire before harvest and/or grazing or cutting for stockfeed.

 

 Preparation

If spray equipment has been previously used for the application of sulfonylurea herbicides eg Cheminova Metsulfuron 600 WG Herbicide (metsulfuron methyl), chlorsulfuron, thifensulfuron methyl, triasulfuron, ensure that the recommended sprayer equipment procedure for the product previously applied has been followed, before using the equipment for the application of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide. Quinella Upgrade Herbicide is an emulsifiable concentrate to be mixed with water and applied as a spray. Add the required amount of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide directly to the spray tank and mix well. If mixing with mancozeb or carbendazim, add these to the spray tank and mix thoroughly PRIOR to adding Quinella Upgrade Herbicide. If spray solution has been left standing for more than 3 hours ensure thorough re-agitation before commencement of spraying. DO NOT allow spray mixture to stand overnight, as re-suspension may be difficult.

 

Use of Surfactant/Wetting Agent

Quinella Upgrade Herbicide may be used with either of the following adjuvant system:

 

1)   A methylated and/or ethylated seed crop oil (eg Hasten#) at 1L/100L of final spray volume (i.e. 1% v/v).

2)  A non-ionic surfactant (1000 gai/L) at 200 mL/100L of final spray volume (i.e. 0.2% v/v).

 

DO NOT use Quinella Upgrade Herbicide  with mineral based crop oils (eg D-C-Trate#) or non-methylated spray oils of crop origin (eg Codacide# oil, Synetrol# oil) as spray adjuvants.

 

Compatibility

Quinella Upgrade Herbicide is compatible with the herbicides sethoxydim and clethodim. The recommended surfactant/wetting agent is the methylated and/or ethylated seed crop oil adjuvant system.

Quinella Upgrade Herbicide is compatible with the insecticides deltamethrin, omethoate, dimethoate, methomyl, endosulfan, the fungicides carbendazim and mancozeb and the herbicide clopyralid when using the methylated and/or ethylated seed crop oil adjuvant system.

Quinella Upgrade Herbicide  is compatible with the herbicide diflufenican when using the non-ionic surfactant only adjuvant system. DO NOT add crop oil to tank mixtures of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide/diflufenican.

Application of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide /diflufenican tank mix may result in crop effects, which usually appear as yellow or white bleaching on the leaves. New growth and subsequent yield, however, will not be affected.

To minimise crop effects apply Quinella Upgrade Herbicide a minimum of 5 days prior to diflufencan application or a minimum 10 days after diflufenican application. (14-21 days if weeds have been stressed).

 

Ground Spraying Equipment

Use between 50 and 100 litres of prepared spray/ha, the higher spray volume gives more reliable results.  If weeds are large and the crop canopy is dense, increase the volume to 150 litres prepared spray/ha. Use sprayers with flat fan or hollow cone nozzles at 210-350 kPa to give an even distribution of droplets with no less than 50% of the spray volume in the 150-300 micron range.  1100 flat fan nozzles are preferred.

For proper spray coverage adjust the boom and nozzle height according to the specification listed by the nozzle manufacturers.  Ensure the spray is evenly distributed and a double overlap spray pattern is obtained.  

Avoid overlapping boomspray widths and shut off spray booms while starting, slowing or stopping.

 

 

Sprayer Cleanup

Thoroughly clean all traces of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide from application equipment immediately after use.  Flush tank, pump, hoses and boom with several changes of water after removing nozzle tips and screens (clean those parts separately).  Failure to thoroughly clean the equipment may result in injury to subsequently sprayed cereal and grass crops. If spray equipment has been previously used for the application of sulfonylurea herbicides eg Cheminova Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide (metsulfuron methyl), thifensulfuron methyl, chlorsulfuron, triasulfuron ensure that the recommended sprayer cleanup procedure of the product previously sprayed has been followed before using the equipment for the application of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide.

 

Resistance Warning

 

Quinella Upgrade Herbicide is a member of the “Fop” (aryloxyphenoxy propianate) group of herbicides. Quinella Upgrade Herbicide has the inhibitors of acetyl coA carboxylase mode of action.  For weed resistance management Quinella Upgrade Herbicide is a Group A herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Quinella Upgrade Herbicide and other Group A 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 Quinella Upgrade Herbicide or other Group A herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova accepts no liability for any losses that may result from failure of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide to control resistant weeds. Strategies to minimise the risk of herbicide resistance are available.  Consult your farm chemical supplier, consultant, Cheminova Representative, local Department of Agriculture or Primary Industries.

 

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

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

 

Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

DO NOT plant cereal crops into the treated area for a period of 18 weeks after application of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide.

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping land or pastures.

Storage and Disposal

DO NOT store tank-mixes of Quinella Upgrade Herbicide with other materials. Store in the closed original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. When storing, keep from contact with fertilisers, fungicides and seeds.

This container can be recycled if it is clean, dry, free of visible residues and has the drumMUSTER logo visible. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal.  Dispose of rinsate by adding it to the spray tank. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemical on site.  Wash outside of the container and the cap. Store cleaned container in a sheltered place with cap removed. It will then be acceptable for recycling at any drumMUSTER collection point or similar container management program site. The cap should not be replaced but may be taken separately.

If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and deliver empty packaging to an approved waste management facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available, bury the empty packaging 500mm below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant Local, State or Territory government regulations. DO NOT burn empty containers or product.

For Refillable containers (110L, 1000L, bulk): Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves and return to point of supply for refill or storage.

 

 

Precautions Re-entry Period

DO NOT allow entry into treated areas until the spray has dried.  When prior entry is necessary, wear chemical resistant gloves.  Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.
