Application

 

DO NOT apply this product by air or mister within a Chemical Control Area in Victoria unless a permit has been issued by the Department of Natural Resources and Environment.

 

Boom Spraying Plantation Trees: Apply Sparta 300 SL in sufficient water to obtain good coverage. It should be applied by an accurately calibrated ground rig or aircraft, delivering 200-300 micron droplets and not less than 50 L/ha water volume for boom sprayers or not less than 20 L/ha for aerial application.

Hardhead Thistle – Use a spray volume of 200-250 L/ha of water.

Silver Wattle – Use a spray volume of 150-200 L/ha of water by ground boomspray and a minimum spray volume of 50 L/ha by aircraft.

 

Boom Spraying Crop and Pastures: Apply Sparta 300 SL in sufficient water to obtain good coverage. It should be applied by an accurately calibrated ground rig or aircraft, delivering 200-300 micron droplets and not less than 50 L/ha water volume for boom sprayers or not less than 20 L/ha for aerial applications.

Hardhead Thistle – Use a spray volume of 200-250 L/ha of water.

Silver Wattle – Use a spray volume of 150-200 L/ha of water by ground boomspray and a minimum spray volume of 50 L/ha by aircraft.

 

High Volume Hand Gun: Apply the recommended mix to give full coverage of leaves and stems through a No. 6-8 tip at 700-1500 kPa. Spray volume for effective coverage of dense two metre high Silver Wattle should be 30-40 litres of spray per 100 m2 (10 m x 10 m) of infestation. 

For larger areas an equivalent would be 3000-4000 litres per infested hectare.

 

Cleaning Spray Equipment

 

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

 

Partial Cleaning (Before spraying other labelled or tolerant crops): After using Sparta 300 SL, empty the tank completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the tank using a pressure hose. Quarter fill the tank with clean water and circulate through the pump, line, hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat procedure twice.

 

Complete Cleaning (Before spraying susceptible crops): After using Sparta 300 SL, empty the tank completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the tank using a pressure hose. Quarter fill the tank with clean water and circulate as above, then drain. Quarter fill the tank again and add a liquid detergent (e.g. Surf†, Omo†, Drive†) at 500 mL/100 L water and circulate throughout the system for at least fifteen minutes. Drain, remove filters and nozzles and clean separately. Rinse inside the tank thoroughly using a pressure hose and flush system with clean water.

 

Resistance Warning

 

Sparta 300 SL Herbicide is a member of the Pyridines group of herbicides. Sparta 300 SL has the disruptors of plant cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance management Sparta 300 SL is a Group I Herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Sparta 300 SL and other Group I 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 SPARTA 300 SL or other Group I herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, FMC Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Sparta 300 SL to control resistant weeds.

 

Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

 

Susceptible crops include chickpeas, cotton, faba beans, field peas, fruit trees, lentils, lupins, lucerne, medics, ornamentals, potatoes, safflower, sub-clover, tomatoes, vegetables, vines, wattles and white clover.

 

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.

 

Plant Back Periods: Residues in the straw of treated crops can affect subsequent susceptible crops. Susceptible crops listed above should not be sown for: Nine months following any application up to 300 mL/ha. 

Twelve months following an application in excess of 300 mL/ha and up to 500 mL/ha.

 

Important: When applied to dry soils at least 15 mm (1/2 inch) of rain must fall prior to the commencement of the Plant Back Period.

 

Note: Field Peas are particularly susceptible and should not be sown the season following an application of 500 mL/ha. Where rates in excess of 500 mL/ha have been used, susceptible crops, including field peas, should not be sown for at least two years.

 

 

Protection of Livestock

 

DO NOT graze or cut treated crops for stock food except as specified under withholding periods.

 

 

Protection of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans and Environment

 

Sparta 300 SL has low toxicity to fish, birds, honey bees, livestock, earthworms and aquatic organisms. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with chemical or used containers.

 

 

Storage and Disposal

 

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

The method of disposal of the container depends on the container type. Read the ‘Storage and Disposal’ instructions on the label that is attached to the container.

 

SMALL SPILL MANAGEMENT
