General Instructions


DO NOT apply to plants which may be stressed (not actively growing) due to prolonged periods of extreme temperature (less than 5°C or greater than 30°C), moisture stress (water-logged or drought affected), poor nutrition or previous herbicide treatment as reduced levels of control may result.

DO NOT apply post-emergence treatments if rain is likely within 4 hours.

DO NOT irrigate (any method) treated crop or pasture for 48 hours after application.

DO NOT apply to crops affected by disease or by previous herbicide treatment (eg triazines or sulfonylureas)

DO NOT apply to plants which have suffered frosting for extended periods. Allow at least 2 days frost free prior to treatment.

DO NOT tank mix with any adjuvant, crop oil concentrate or wetter. Sarritor has pre­ formulated components with sufficient wetting ability built in.




Shake or stir well before use. Quarter fill the spray tank and add the required amount of Sarritor® Herbicide. Add the remaining water with the agitator running. Maintain agitation during spraying. Only mix sufficient spray solution for immediate use and avoid storing.


When tank mixing: Sarritor should be added to the tank following wettable powders and dry flowable formulations, but before suspension concentrates (flowables), aqueous concentrates and emulsifiable concentrates.




Apply Sarritor in 50 to 150 litres of water per hectare, through an accurately calibrated boom sprayer. For aircraft application apply Sarritor in no less than 30 L/ha of water through accurately calibrated equipment. The product should be applied by an accurately calibrated ground rig or aircraft delivering medium quality spray based on BCPC specifications and in accordance with ASAE standard S-572.


Best results are achieved where applications are made on warm (greater than 5°C), sunny days applying more than 50 L/ha of total spray volume (preferably more than 75 L/ha) and where spray coverage is maximised.


Cleaning Spray Equipment


After using Sarritor, empty the tank completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the tank using a pressure hose. Drain the tank and clean any filters in the tank, pump, lines and nozzles.


To rinse: After cleaning the tank as above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and circulate through the pump, lines, hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.


To decontaminate: Before spraying sensitive crops (which include Canola, Cotton, Faba beans, Lupins, Sorghum and Sunflowers), wash the tank and rinse the system asabove. Quarter fill the tank and add an alkali detergent (e.g. SURF*, Cold Water SURF Concentrate*, Dynamo Matic Concentrate*, OMO*or DRIVE* at 500 ml/100 L of water or the powder equivalent at 500 g/100 L) and circulate throughout the system for at least fifteen minutes. Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean them separately. Finally flush the system with clean water and allow to drain. Chlorine based cleaners are not recommended. Nufarm Tank Cleaner*is not recommended.


Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area or, if this is unavailable, onto unused land away from desirable plants and watercourses.


Resistance Weeds Warning


Sarritor is a broadleaf herbicide with no ryegrass activity and is a member of the triazolopyrimidine sulfonanilide (sulfonamide) group of herbicides. The product has the acetolactate synthase (ALS) inhibitor mode of action. For weed resistance management the product is a Group B herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to the 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, FMC accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of the product to control resistant weeds. Strategies to minimise the risk of herbicide resistance are available. Contact your farm chemical supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture, or local FMC representative.


Minimum Re-cropping Periods


Cereal rye, Medics, Triticale, Wheat, Maize, Soybeans: May be planted at any time after application of Sarritor.


Barley, Chickpeas, Clover, Field peas, Lucerne, Oats and Peanuts: Allow 3 months to elapse after application before sowing these crops.


Canola, Cotton, Faba beans, Fenugreek, Lathyrus, Lentils, Lupins, Serradella, Sorghum, Sunflowers, Popany vetch: On deep soils (with no impermeable sub-horizon), cotton, sorghum and sunflowers may be planted 3 months after application of Sarritor. Canola, Faba beans and Lupins are more sensitive and may be planted 9 months after application of Sarritor. On shallow, duplex, low organic matter soils with an impermeable sub-horizon within the root zone (30 cm deep or less), these crops should NOT be planted until 2 years after application of Sarritor.


Protection of crops, native and other non-target plants


Refer to MINIMUM RECROPPING PERIODS for crop rotation information. Crops susceptible to Sarritor include Canola, Cotton, Faba beans, Lupins, Sorghum and Sunflowers.

DO NOT flood irrigate any treated crop or pasture for 48 hours after application. Where other types of irrigation are used, for example sprinklers, DO NOT irrigate to the point of runoff for at least 48 hours after application.

DO NOT apply to waterlogged soils or if heavy rain is expected within 48 hours of application.


DO NOT contaminate dams, waterways or drains with the product or its containers.

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, such as dead calm or excessive wind, or from spraying equipment producing small droplets that may cause spray to drift onto adjacent areas, particularly wetlands, waterbodies, watercourses, susceptible crops or land to be planted with susceptible crops.


Protection of livestock


DO NOT graze or cut treated crops for stock food except as specified under WITHHOLDING PERIODS (refer to label).

Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying, therefore livestock should be kept out of the area until the plants have died down.


Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment


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


Storage and disposal


Keep out of reach of children. Store in the closed, original container in a cool well-ventilated area. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. DO NOT store under cold storage conditions.

Triple-rinse containers before disposal. Dispose of rinsate or any undiluted chemical according to state/territory legislative requirements.

If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point.

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 500 mm 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.


Safety directions


Harmful if inhaled. Will irritate the eyes. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. DO NOT inhale dust. When opening the container and using the product, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing), elbow-length chemical resistant gloves, face shield or goggles and disposable dust face mask covering mouth and nose. If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. Wash hands after use. After each day’s use, wash gloves, face shield or goggles and contaminated clothing.
