Resistance

Warning:

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

GROUP I HERBICIDE

Archer Herbicide is a member of the Pyridine group of herbicides. Archer has the disruptor

of plant cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance management, Archer is a Group

I herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Archer 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 Archer or other Group I

herbicides. Strategies to minimise the risk of herbicide resistance are available.

Protections:

PROTECTION OF CROPS, 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. Composts

and mulches -DO NOT apply Archer Herbicide to crops or pastures that will be used for

the production of compost or mulches or mushroom substrate. Such compost or mulch

made from plant material treated with Archer may cause damage to susceptible crops

and plants. Susceptible crops and plants include, but are not limited to chickpeas, clover,

cotton, faba beans, field peas, fruit trees, lentils, lupins, lucerne, medics, ornamentals,

potatoes, safflower, tomatoes, vegetables, grape and kiwifruit vines, vetches, and wattles.

Field peas, faba beans, lentils and vetches are particularly susceptible and should not be

sown the season following an application of Archer at 500mL/ha.

Where Archer residue carry over from use rates of less than 500mL/ha is suspected and

susceptible crops are to be planted, test the treated area as follows:

Field bioassay -where rain allows, plant a small area of the susceptible crop 4 to 6 weeks

before desired planting data and take note of any symptoms of injury. If any herbicide

symptoms are observed, only plant either canola or a cereal (see recommendation for

northern and southern Australia below).

Pot bioassay -where not practical to do field bioassay, plant a small number of seeds of

the susceptible crop into pots containing soil from the treated field. Do this 4 to 6 weeks

before desired planting date. If any herbicide symptoms are observed, only plant either

canola or cereal (see recommendation for northern and southern Australia below).

Stubble from treated crops- ensure that harvesters effectively spread crop straw and DO

NOT leave a heavy ‘header trail’ after harvest. Burn (if legal in the area), bale and remove,

Page 3 of 4

slash or incorporate stubble as soon as practical after harvest and as long as possible

before planting next year to allow microbial breakdown of any residues in straw. Heavy

stubbleoads may carry more residue into the following season. Where heavy stubble

burdens and/or non-wetting soils exist and less than recommended rain amount have

occurred from application to planting the susceptible crop (see below), only plant a winter

or summer cereal or canola.

Planting crops following use of Archer herbicide in previous crop- planting crops ‘dry’

without significant rain (see below) in the ‘autumn break’ increases the risk of injury to

susceptible crops. This practice should be avoided or only plant a winter or irrigated

summer cereal crop or canola. In severely dry conditions, where less than 30% of

average annual rainfall and/or less than the minimum rain (see below) has fallen between

application and planting the next year, only plant a winter or irrigated summer cereal or

canola.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Archer 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.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

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

WITHHOLDING PERIODS.

Vic only

NOTE: DO NOT USE ON LUCERNE. CLOVERS

AND MEDICS WILL BE ELIMINATED FOR AT

LEAST ONE YEAR. Victoria only: Use the lower

rate only on light soils (sand and sandy loam)

where a slightly lower degree of control is

acceptable. Use the higher rate on all soil types

where complete control is required. Addition of

Activator Surfactant at 125mL/100L is

recommended for treatment of hardhead thistle.

Spray between September and April on actively

growing plants for effective control. Thorough

coverage is essential. Apply in 200-250L of

water/ha.

BOOM SPRAYING: Use the higher rates of Archer

plus Agritone 750 on multi crowned plants or

rosettes larger than 30cm in diameter. Spraying

may be done at anytime during active growth,

usually in early winter or spring. Avoid spraying

during the dormant winter period or at any time

when thistles are not actively growing. DO NOT

spray flowering thistles.

PRE-SPRAY MANAGEMENT: The pastures

should be slightly grazed prior to spraying to

reduce clover and grass cover and expose the

smaller thistles to the spray. The grazed pastures

should be left seven days to allow thistles to

freshen prior to treatment.

POST-TREATMENT MANAGEMENT: Response

of thistles to treatment with the Archer plus

Agritone 750 mixture will be slow compared to the

standard treatments with Amicide Advance 700 or

Agritone 750. If possible delay grazing of sprayed

thistles for 14 days after treatment.

CLOVER DAMAGE: The Archer plus Agritone 750

mixture can be very damaging to subterranean

clover. The lower rate is no more damaging than

label rates of Amicide Advance 700 or Agritone

750. The higher rate of the Archer plus Agritone

750 mixture will reduce the clover component of

the pasture for about two months. Clover recovery

will be quicker during periods of active growth.

HAND GUN (Spot spray): Treat from rosette stage

to early flowering. Thorough spraying is necessary.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

:

It is essential to select a rate appropriate to weed size. Best results will be obtained when weeds are actively

growing at treatment

.

RESTRAINTS: 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.

Cupping of the tip leaves and “weepy leader” symptoms may occur on certain

Eucalyptus spp. and Corymbia maculata and are generally transient and do not

result in long-term injury. These symptoms may be more obvious at rates of 1L/ha

or higher or where mixtures are used on blue gum, shining gum and spotted gum.

Where “weepy leader” effect is a concern use a directed spray. Use the 500mL

rate until 3 months post-planting and the1L rate for trees 3 months and older. Use

the low rate only under ideal conditions with excellent weed growth and where

knockdown control of small weeds is desired. Use the high rate where longer

control is required of larger weeds.

For the control of annual and certain perennial grasses, ARCHER can be tank

mixed with Verdict or other 520g/L Haloxyfop products. See also comments in

Mixing section. Bonza should not be used in tank mixes with Verdict or other

520g/L Haloxyfop products and ARCHER on sensitive species such as blue gum,
