GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

DO NOT apply Casoron G Herbicide during periods of intense rainfall, when wind

speed exceeds 30 kph for ground application or under conditions which cause

granule movement to non-target areas.

On slopes of 20

to 30

, apply Casoron G Herbicide by broadcast, strip or spot

application only. On slopes greater than 30

, apply by spot application method

only.

DO NOT dispense via dust prone methods. Only use with applicators specifically

designed to dispense granular products.

Resistant Weeds Warning

Casoron G Herbicide is a member of the Nitrile group of herbicides. This product

has diverse sites for mode of action. For weed resistance management, the

product is a Group K herbicide. Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant

to the product and other Group K 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 this product or other Group K herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use,

Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from

the failure of this product to control resistant weeds.

Application

Horticultural Situations:

This product provides effective season-long control of many annual grasses

and broadleaf weeds in a variety of horticultural situations. Application of the

granules to a weed free surface ensures best results by preventing growth before

it begins. Young, germinating weeds are killed. Take care to avoid letting granules

lodge against buds.

Commercial, Industrial and Aquatic Situations:

Note: Consult your State Fisheries Department before applying this product to

public waters.

This product is an easy to use form of highly active chemical. Simply sprinkle

the granules, at the recommended rates evenly over the area to be treated. This

product is suitable for the use on driveways, paths and tennis courts where

desirable trees are in close proximity.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from equipment, that may cause

product to be placed or moved onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping

lands or pastures.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

DO NOT graze livestock on treated areas.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEA AND ENVIRONMENT

Dangerous to fish. DO NOT contaminate dams, rivers or streams with the

chemical or used containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a dry, cool, well ventilated area, out of

direct sunlight. Do not dispose of undiluted chemical on-site. Puncture or shred

and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available,

bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set

up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty

containers and product should not be burnt.

FIRST AID

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poison Information Centre.

Phone Australia 131 126.

Spread the granules evenly over the

soil of the area to be treated. Remove

existing weeds by hand, desiccation or

cultivation. Use higher rate on heavier

soils.

Apply late winter to early spring before

growth has started.

Stock not to be repotted.

New stock recently potted out. Apply

two applications of the granules at 6-8

week intervals. Spread granules evenly

over the soil of the area to be treated.

Remove existing weeds by hand,

desiccation or cultivation. Apply only to

plants at least 6 months old.

Treatment prior to germination of the

weeds will provide long lasting effect.

Satisfactory result will be obtained if

large weeds are chipped out, if treatment

of seedling weeds is necessary. Use

higher rate for heavier weed infestations.

Treatment should be carried out when

plants are dormant – usually in the

colder months. Spot treatment of older

or more established weeds. Use higher

rate for heavier weed infestations.

Exposed soil. Best results obtained

when application is made to moist soil

situation as close as is practicable to the

time when these areas will be flooded.

Use higher rate for heavier weed

infestations.

For water less than one metre deep.

Apply to standing (ie. not moving) water

and toward the end of the dormant

period of the plant. Preferably July

– August. Use higher rate for heavier

weed infestations.

For water greater than one metre deep.
