Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to 4 Farmers 2,4-D Amine 500 herbicide and other phenoxy 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 4 Farmers

2,4-D Amine 500 herbicide or other phenoxy herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is to detect prior to use, 4 Farmers accepts no liability for any losses that

may result from the failure of 4 Farmers 2,4-D Amine 500 herbicide to control resistant weeds.

DO NOThowever assume resistance without first reviewing the method of application, timing, water quality and weather

conditions.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS:DO NOTapply under meteorological

conditions or spraying equipment which could be expected to cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants, adjacent

crops, crop lands or pastures.Avoid spray drift and vapour movement onto susceptible crops such as cotton, tobacco,

tomatoes, vines, fruit trees and omamentals.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEA AND ENVIRONMENT:Dangerous to fish. DO NOT

contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL:Store in the closed, original container in a dry, well-ventilated area, as cool as possible. DO

NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.Store in a locked room or place away from children, animals, food,

feedstuffs, seed and fertilisers. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do

not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local landfill. If no

landfill is available bury the containers below 500mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of

waterways, desireable vegetation and roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS:Poisonous if swallowed. Avoid contact with eyes and skin and do not spray mist. When

preparing spray wear PVC or rubber apron, elbow-length PVC gloves and face shield. When using the prepared spray wear

face shield. If product on skin immediately wash area with soap and water. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking,

wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water. After each day’s use wash gloves, face shield and contaminated

clothing.

FIRST AID:If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information on 13 1126. If swallowed and if more

15 minutes a hospital, induce vomiting, preferably using Ipecac Syrup APF.

Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES

SWALLOWED

■- IF SWALLOWED, REFER FOR MEDICAL ATTENTION, WHERE POSSIBLE, WITHOUT

DELAY.

- For advice,contact a Poisons Information Centre ora doctor.

EYE

■If thisproductcomesincontact with the eyes:

- Immediatelyhold eyelids apart and flush the eye continuously withrunningwater.

- Ensurecomplete irrigation of the eye bykeeping eyelids apart and away fromeye and

moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids.

TOXICITY AND IRRITATION

■unless otherwise specified data extracted from RTECS- RegisterofToxic Effects of

Chemical Substances.

■Contact allergies quickly manifest themselvesascontact eczema, more rarelyas urticaria

or Quincke'soedema. Thepathogenesis of contact eczema involves a cell-mediated (T

lymphocytes) immune reaction of the delayed type.

Asthma-likesymptoms may continue for months oreven years after exposure to the material

ceases. Thismay be due to a non-allergenicconditionknown asreactive airways dysfunction

syndrome (RADS) whichcan occur following exposure to high levels of highly irritating

compound.

For chlorophenoxy pesticides:.

WARNING: This substancehas been classifiedby the IARC asGroup 2B: Possibly

Carcinogenic toHumans.

Side-reactions during manufacture of the parentcompound may result in the productionof

trace amounts of polyhalogenatedaromatichydrocarbon(s). Halogenated phenols, and

especially their alkalisalts,cancondense above 300 deg.

Polyhalogenated aromatichydrocarbons (PHAHs)comprise two major groups.The first group

representedby the halogenated derivatives of dibenzodioxins (thechlorinatedform is PCDD),

dibenzofurans(PCDF)andbiphenyls(PCB) exert their toxic effect (as hepatoxicants,

reproductive toxicants, immunotoxicants andprocarcinogens) by interaction witha cytostolic

proteinknown as the Ah receptor.
