General Instructions

 

Directions for Use

FORESTS - IT IS ESSENTIAL to select a rate appropriate to weed size. Best results will be obtained when weeds are actively growing at treatment.

 

Mixing

 

Half fill the spray tank with water and add the required quantity of SPARTA 300 SL and complete filling. Agitate continuously to ensure thorough mixing before and during application. Only mix sufficient chemical for each day's work. Tank mixtures: Wettable powder or dry flowable formulations should be added to the spray tank first, followed by suspension concentrates (flowables), aqueous concentrates (SPARTA 300 SL) and the emulsifiable concentrate formulations (e.g. Haloxyfop or LVE MCPA).

 

Compatibility

SPARTA 300 SL is compatible with the following:

Broadleaf Herbicides: Fluroxypyr, metsulfuronmethyl, bromoxynil, chlorsulfuron, diuron, glyphosate, MCPA amine, MCPA LVE, paraquat, Spray-out, Salvation, 2,4-D amine.

Grass Herbicides in Cereal Crops: Diclofop methyl, Grasp, Foxtrot (Grasp and Foxtrot for Wild Oat control only).

Grass Herbicides on Broadleaf Crops: Haloxyfop Herbicide.

 

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 to 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 to 250 L/ha of water.

 

Silver Wattle - Use a spray volume of 150 to 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 to 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 to 250 L/ha of water.

 

Silver Wattle - Use a spray volume of 150 to 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 to 1500 kPa.

 

Spray volume for effective coverage of dense two metre high Silver Wattle should be 30 to 40 litres of spray per 100 m2 (10 m x 10 m) of infestation. For larger areas an equivalent would be 3000 to 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 fi ll 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 fi ll 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.

 

Plant Back Period

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 fi eld peas, should not be sown for at least two years.

 

Restraints

 

FORESTS:

DO NOT apply to weeds which may be stressed (inactive growth) due to prolonged periods of extreme heat or cold, moisture stress (water logging or drought) or previous herbicide treatment as reduced levels of control may result.

 

DO NOT spray if rain is likely within 3 hours.

 

Resistance Warning

 

Cheminova 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 diffi cult to detect prior to use, Cheminova Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of SPARTA 300 SL to control resistant weeds.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

SPARTA 300 SL has low toxicity to fi sh, birds, honey bees, livestock, earthworms and aquatic organisms. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with 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 drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures.

 

DO NOT apply Cheminova Clopyralid 300 Herbicide to crops or pastures, which are to be used for the production of compost or mulches for use with susceptible crops or plants. The use of straw, hay or other plant material treated with Cheminova Clopyralid 300 Herbicide for composting or mulching susceptible crops may damage these crops.

 

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 allow spray drift onto susceptible crops.

 

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

 

Note: Field peas are particularly susceptible and should not be sown the season following an application of 500mL/ha.

Where rates in excess of 500mL/ha have been used, susceptible crops, including field peas, should not be sown for at least two years.

 

Safety Directions

 

May irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. DO NOT inhale the spray mist.

 

When preparing the spray, wear elbow-length PVC gloves and face shield.

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.

 

For refillable containers, empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves and return to point of supply for refill or storage.

 

SMALL SPILL MANAGEMENT

Wear protective equipment (See Safety Directions). Apply absorbent material such as earth, sand, clay granules or cat litter to the spill. Sweep up material for disposal when absorption is completed and contain in a refuse vessel for disposal. (See Storage and Disposal section).
