Winter Grass

(Poa annua)

150mL per

1000m

Apply 2-3 sprays spaced 10-

14 days apart in late winter to

early spring. Apply as a fine

mist spray in 50-100L of

water per 1000m

. For a full

sized bowling green (38m x

38m) apply 210mL in 70L

water. Apply before seed

heads form.

Can also be applied in

Autumn and early Winter,

although new germinations

will have to be retreated.

Apply when winter grass is

becoming evident. One spray

may be sufficient.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE OR IN ANY MANNER CONTRARY

TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE

LEGISLATION.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

This product is a selective post emergence herbicide formulated specifically

for the control of winter grass. If used on turf heavily infested with winter grass

it is important that a programme of sprigging and reseeding be carried out

after the treatment. This product is not persistent in the soil and reseeding can

take place 2 weeks after application. Large areas of dead winter grass may

form a thatch that may be conducive to spread of turf diseases and it is

important that a preventative disease control program be carried out also. Do

not use when temperature exceeds 25

C. Do not use on Red Fescues or

Kikuyu.

MIXING AND APPLICATION:

POACHEK mixes readily with water. For best results use a boom spray

application at a pressure and nozzle size that gives small droplets. Even and

complete coverage is necessary. Do not use a wetting agent.

_________________________________________________________

Poachek is a member of the other modes of action group of herbicides.

Poachek has an unknown mode of action. For weed resistance management

Poachek is a Group K herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes

resistant to Poachek and other Group K herbicides may exist through normal

genetic variability in any weed population. The resistant individuals can

eventually dominate the weeds population if these herbicides are used

repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by Poachek or other

Group K herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to

detect prior to use, Colin Campbell (Chemicals) Pty Ltd accepts no liability for

ant losses that may result from the failure of Poachek to control resistant

weeds.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS:

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that

may cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping lands

or pastures.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK, WILDLIFE AND OTHERS:

DO NOT allow stock to graze any treated plants. DO NOT graze treated

turf/lawn: or feed turf/lawn clippings from any treated area to poultry or

livestock.

ANIMAL TOXICITY DATA – PRODUCT

Acute:

Oral toxicity

rat 99.5mg/kg (moderately toxic ) (endothal dipotassium) . Repeated

dietary administration (via gelatin tablets) produced vomiting, diarrhoea,

sluggish movements, and liver, kidney and blood effects in dogs.

Dermal toxicity:

rabbit 2000mg/kg (slightly toxic) (endothal dipotassium)

Inhalation toxicity:

rat (4 hour): 0.83mg/L (aerosol) (endothal dipotassium)

Skin irritation:

Not irritating - rabbit (endothal dipotassium)

Eye irritation:

Causes irreversible eye damage in rabbits (endothal dipotassium)

Sensitisation:

Skin allergy was observed in guinea pigs following repeated exposure.

Chronic:

Long term dietary administration to rats and mice produced effects in the glandular stomach. High

mortality rates and intestinal tumours considered to be secondary to the effects in the stomach were

observed in mice. Long term application to the skin of mice produced no tumours. No birth defects

were observed in the offspring of rats exposed orally during pregnancy, even at dosages that produced

adverse effects on the mothers. Skeletal anomalies were observed in the offspring of rabbits and mice

exposed orally during pregnancy, but only at dosages that produced adverse effects in the mothers. No

genetic changes were observed in tests using bacteria, animal cells or animals.
