GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Affinity Plus Herbicide

an early post

emergence herbicide for

the control

certain broad leaf

sedge weeds in winter

cereals and rice.

Affinity Plus is a co-formulation of

carfentrazone-ethyl

MCPA present

as sodium salt.

The respective active ingredients combine to provide a fast

acting

contact

herbicide which provides dual

modes of

action for the control

weeds through a process of

membrane disruption as well

as disruption of

plant

cell

growth.

The foliar

uptake of

.Affinity Plus is

rapid and plant

desiccation can occur

within 1 to 4 days of

application.

Application of

Affinity Plus

should target

small

actively growing weeds.

Subsequent germinations will

not be controlled.

SYMPTOMS

Foliar

application

Affinity Plus is rapidly absorbed through the foliage of plants.

Within a few hours following application,

the foliage of

susceptible weeds show signs of

desiccation,

and in subsequent

days necrosis and

death of

the piant.

Due to environmental

conditions and certain spray tank additives,

some herbicidal

symptoms may appear

on the crop in the form of

leaf

spotting.

However,

the crop recovers quickly,

usually within two to three weeks of treatment.

Extremes in environmental

conditions

temperature and moisture,

soil

conditions

and/or

cultural

practices may

affect

the activity of Affinity Plus. Under warm moist

conditions,

herbicide symptoms may

be accelerated.

While under

very dry conditions,

the expression of

herbicidal

symptoms is delayed,

and weeds hardened

by drought

are less susceptibie to Affinity Plus.

Under

dry conditions the

addition of a non-ionic surfactant may be used to improve weed control.

COMPATIBILITY

Affinity Plus Herbicide can be tank mixed with Ally,

Diurex,

Igran,

Eclipse,

Logran and formulations of

MCPA Amine (500

giL)

Thistiekillem.

Do not

tank

mix with MCPA LVE formulations

ester

formulations

other

herbicides or

with

oil/surfactant blends,

as excessive crop injury may occur.

When tank mixing read both labels and adhere to the crop recommendations and directions that

most

restrictive ..

The compatibility's

given are based on experience and are considered

correct.

However,

as changes to climatic conditions can aiter

the sensitivity of

plants to mixtures in sprays,

FMC accepts no responsibility for the behaviour of such mixtures.

Annual

Grass

Control

(wild

oat,

grass

etc.)

Affinity Plus should not

be mixed with selective grass herbicides as grass weed control

is significantly

reduced and excessive

crop injury

may occur.

Increased

crop injury

is caused

by the crop oil

concentrates and oil/surfactant

blends used with these grass herbicides.

Instead,

allow a 10 to 14 day

interval

between separate broadleaf and grass treatments.

Surfactant!

Wetting

Agents

The addition of a non-ionic surfactant

(1000 gal/L) such as BS1000',

at a maximum rate of 50 mL/100

L of

final

spray volume

(0.05% volume/volume)

may be used to improve weed control

under

drier

growing conditions at

time of

application.

this use rate some leaf

spotting may appear

on the crop,

however the crop recovers quickly,

usually within two to three weeks of treatment.

The addition of

oils and oil/surfactant

blends will

reduce crop selectivity and increase crop injury.

Increasing the rate of

these adjuvants results in increased (excessive)

herbicide symptoms.

Do not

tank mix Affinity Plus with spray oils or oil/surfactant blends,

as excessive crop

injury

may occur.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

GROUP

HERBICIDE

Affinity

Plus

Herbicide is a member

both the of

the Aryl

triazolinone and phenoxy's

group of

herbicides.

Affinity Plus has a process of

membrane disruption,

which is initiated by the inhibition of

the enzyme protoporphyrinogen oxidase and disruptor of

plant

cell

growth modes of

action.

For weed

resistance management Affinity Plus is a Group G and a Group I herbicide.

Some naturally occurring weed blotypes resistant

to Affinity Plus and other group G or I herbicides may

exist

through normal

genetic variability in any weed population.

The resistant

individuals can eventually

dominate the population if

the herbicides are used repeatedly.

These resistant

weeds

will

controlled by Affinity Plus or other inhibitors of the enzyme protoporphyrinogen oxidase,

disruptor of

plant cell

growth herbicides.

Since the occurrence of

resistant

weeds is difficult

to detect

prior

to use,

FMC International

A.G.

accepts no liability for

any losses that

may result

from the failure of

Affinity Plus to control

resistant

weeds.

TIMING

Application should be made to small,

actively growing weeds less than 6 to 8 leaf

in size.

As Affinity

Plus is a contact

herbicide,

best

control

is achieved when weeds are exposed and are not shielded by

other weeds and or the crop.

Ideally crops should be at the 3 leaf

to early/mid tillering stage (Zadok's

code 13 to 25), prior to crop canopy closure.

MIXING

Add half

the required volume of

water

in spray tank and start

agitation.

Add the measured amount

Affinity Plus next.

Add balance of

water

to tank and add non-ionic surfactant

recommended rate if

necessary.

Maintain good agitation at

times

until

spraying

completed.

Reseal

part

used

containers immediately.

APPLICATION

Apply Affinity Plus as a broadcast application.

Use conventional

boom sprayers with either mechanical

or by-pass agitation.

Flat fan nozzles should be used.

Spray equipment should be properly calibrated

to ensure correct

application.

Use a spray volume of

50 to 150 litres per

hectare.

Use the lowest

pressure and boom height

that

provides uniform coverage.

Use the higher volume if weed infestation

is heavy or the crop cover is dense.

The best

condition for

spraying are when soil

is moist,

weather fine and rain unlikely within 6 hours of

application.

Under dry growing conditions,

a low rate of a non-ionic surfactant (1000 gai/L) such as 8S1000 may be

added at a maximum rate of

50mU1

00 L of final

spray volume (0.05% v/v) to improve weed control.

Extremes

in environmental

conditions

e.g.

temperature and moisture,

soil

conditions and cultural

practices may affect

the activity of

Affinity Plus.

Under

warm moist

conditions,

herbicide symptoms

may be accelerated.

While

under

very dry conditions,

the expression

herbicidal

symptoms

delayed,

and weeds hardened off

by drought

are less susceptible to Affinity Plus.

Under dry conditions

the addition of a non-ionic surfactant may be added to improve weed control.

SPRAYER CLEAN OUT

After

spraying Affinity Plus and before using sprayer

equipment

any other

applications i.e.

before

spraying sensitive crops such as faba beans,

canola,

lentils etc.

the sprayer

must

be thoroughiy

cleaned using the following procedure.

In addition users must

take appropriate steps to ensure proper

equipment

clean out for any other products mixed with Affinity Plus as explained on the other

product

labels.

Drain sprayer tank,

hoses,

and spray boom and thoroughly rinse with clean water the inside of the

sprayer

tank free of

visible sediment

and residues.

Remove all

filters and nozzle strainers and

clean to remove any sediment and residues.

Flush through sprayer hoses,

boom and nozzles.

particular attention to dead spots in the system eg boom ends and in the tank.

Fill

the tank

fill

with clean water,

and add an alkaline detergent

"OMO"

"SPREE"

100g/1

OOL,

to the spray tank to increase the pH of

the solution to 10 or

above.

Fill

the tank to

capacity and operate the sprayer for 15 minutes to flush hoses,

boom and nozzles.

Drain the sprayer

system.

Rinse the tank with clean water and flush through the hoses,

boom and

nozzles.

Remove and check all filters and nozzle strainers,

clean if necessary.

A good boom hygiene practice is to follow the use of

Affinity Plus with a cereal

grass herbicide and an

adjuvant

in an alternative cereal

crop, before spraying a sensitive crop.

CROP ROTATION RECOMMENDATIONS

Affinity Plus Herbicide does not

provide residual

activity when used as directed,

therefore no crop

rotational

restrictions apply.

Re-entry

Do not

allow entry into treated areas for 24 hours after treatment.

When prior entry is necessary,

wear

cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist

and a washable hat,

goggies and chemical

resistant

gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day's use.

PROTECTION OF CROPS,

NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

Do not

apply under

weather conditions,

from spray equipment,

which may cause spray drift

onto

nearby susceptible plants,

adjacent

crops, or pastures,

or onto wetlands,

waterbodies or watercourses.
