GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Tweak is absorbed by the leaves and stems. Tweak has no root or soil activity. Tweak is absorbed quickly into the plant tissue and rapidly translocated to the growing parts. Tweak is rainfast within 2 hours of application.

 

GROWING CONDITIONS

Tweak should be applied under good growing conditions with adequate soil moisture. Tweak should not be applied to crops that are under stress due to very dry, very wet, frosty conditions, nutrient deficiency or high insect pressure, as this may give less than reliable results.

 

BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICE PROGRAM

A program has been designed to optimise the performance of Tweak for growth regulation of certain crops. Consultation should be taken with an agronomist familiar with Tweak prior to use in ryegrass seed crops, sugarcane and poppies.

 

MIXING

Add the required quantity of Tweak directly to a spray tank containing 2⁄3 of the required spray volume. Add the rest of the water and ensure the mix is thoroughly agitated before application.

 

APPLICATION

May be applied by boom spray. Ensure complete coverage of all leaves and stems is obtained. Avoid overlapping sprays. The use of flat fan nozzles is recommended using a fine to medium quality spray pattern.

 

Poppies, ryegrass, sugarcane

As a guide, apply using the following spray volumes:

Crop

Water Volume (L/ha)

Boom application

Poppies

150-250

Ryegrass

50-200

Sugarcane

150-500

 

 

COMPATIBILITY

Tweak is physically compatible with a wide range of products; however the biological compatibility of these mixtures may not have been fully tested under all environmental and biological conditions.

A mixture of Tweak with any other product may in some circumstances affect the growth regulatory response. If tank mixes are to be used observe all directions, precautions and limitations on all products to be used. As formulations of other manufacturers’ products are beyond the control of Cheminova Australia Pty Ltd, and the quality of water may vary with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

 

PRECAUTION

DO NOT apply by aircraft.

DO NOT apply by equipment worn on the back of user.

DO NOT apply by low-pressure handspray.

 

Re-entry Period: DO NOT enter treated areas until 22 days after spraying has occurred, unless wearing cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing), face shield or goggles and chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.

Flaggers: DO NOT use human flaggers/markers unless they are protected by engineering controls such as enclosed cabs.

 

LIVESTOCK DESTINED FOR EXPORT MARKETS:

Grazing withholding periods apply to stock slaughtered for the domestic market. Some export markets apply different standards. To meet these standards, ensure that the export grazing interval is observed before stock are sold or slaughtered.

Spray Drift – Protection of Livestock: The grazing of spray drift affected pastures by livestock destined for export markets may result in violation of export market standards. To ensure compliance with export standards livestock should be restricted from grazing spray drift affected pastures for 3 weeks following application.

 

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Dangerous to fish larvae and oysters. DO NOT contaminate dams, rivers, streams or storm water drains with concentrate or used container. Wash out spraying equipment, mixing and measuring utensils with water onto grass.

 

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL
