GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

Before opening, carefully read Directions for Use, Precautionary Statements, Safety Directions

and First Aid Instructions.

DO NOT spray in high winds. DO NOT spray crops or weeds outside the stages indicated in

Critical Comments as damage, loss of yield or inadequate weed control may result.

APPLICATION INFORMATION: This product may be used in either high or low volume sprays.

Just pour into water and stir.

BOOM SPRAYINGUse litres water/ha.

AERIAL SPRAYINGUse IO-90 litres water/ha.

EQUIPMENT AND USAGE: Keep the spray unit for herbicides only if possible.

Otherwise wash out the unit with hot soapy water followed by several clear water rinses. Do not

use wooden spray vats as they cannot be cleaned. Hoses cannot be cleaned and new hoses

should be fitted when the unit is to be used for any other purpose.

COMPATIBILITY: This product can be tank mixed

and Glyphosate.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING: CHEMAG ESTER 800 Herbicide is a member of the Phenoxys

group of herbicides. CHEMAG ESTER 800 has the Disruptors of plant cell growth mode of action.

For weed resistant management CHEMAG ESTER 800 is a Group I herbicide.

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to CHEMAG ESTER 800 and other disruptors

of plant cell growth 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 CHEMAG ESTER 800 or other

disruptors of plant cell growth herbicides.

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

no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of CHEMAG ESTER 800 to control

resistant weeds.

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

LegumeTolerance:If clovers are present, care should be taken to ensure that they have

reached the 3-4 leaf stage before spraying. Rates above 350ml of this product per hectare will

destroy most clovers, whilst and medics are susceptible at any strength.

Drift Warning: DO NOTapply under meteorological conditions or from spraying equipment which

could be expected to cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants, adjacent crops, crop

lands or pastures. In particular, avoid spray drift and vapour movement onto susceptible crops

such as cotton, tobacco, tomatoes, vines, fruit trees, ornamentals, and legume crops and

other susceptible plants and trees (Eg. Kurrajongs, Eucalyptus and Belahs).

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK:Low hazard to bees. May be applied on any plants at any time

as recommended.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEA AND ENVIRONMENT:

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

away from children, animals, food, feedstuffs, seed and fertilizers. Do not store for prolonged

periods in sunlight. Dispose of excess spray solution and empty containers by burial at an

approved site. Triple (or preferably) pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add

rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemical on-site. Break, crush, or puncture and

bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If not available bury the containers below

Draft 1717198 Back Label

500mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways,

vegetation and roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS: Poisonous if swallowed. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale_

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 Center (Phone 131126).

If swallowed, and more than 15 minutes from a hospital induce vomiting, preferably using Ipecac

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

Before opening, carefully read Directions for Use, Precautionary Statements, Safety Directions

and First Aid Instructions.

DO NOT spray in high winds. DO NOT spray crops or weeds outside the stages indicated in

Critical Comments as damage, loss of yield or inadequate weed control may result.

APPLICATION INFORMATION:This product may be used in either high or low volume sprays.

Just pour into water and stir.

BOOM SPRAYINGUse 30-l 20 litres water/ha.

AERIAL SPRAYINGUse litres water/ha.

EQUIPMENT AND USAGE:Keep the spray unit for herbicides only if possible.

Otherwise wash out the unit with hot soapy water followed by several clear water rinses. Do not

use wooden spray vats as they cannot be cleaned. Hoses cannot be cleaned and new hoses

should be fitted when the unit is to be used for any other purpose.

COMPATIBILITY: This product can be tank mixed Glean@

and Glyphosate.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING: ChemAg Ester 800 Herbicide (Ester 800) is a member of the

Phenoxys group of herbicides. Ester 800 has the Disruptors of plant cell growth mode of action.

For weed resistant management Ester 800 is a Group I herbicide.

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to Ester 800 and other disruptors of plant cell

growth 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 Ester 800 or other disruptors of plant

cell growth herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, ChemAg Pty Ltd accepts

no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Ester 800 to control resistant weeds.

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

Legume Tolerance:If clovers are present, care should be taken to ensure that they have

reached the 3-4 leaf stage before spraying. Rates above of this product per hectare will

destroy most clovers, whilst and medics are susceptible at any strength.

Drift Warning:DO NOT apply under meteorological conditions or from spraying equipment which

could be expected to cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants, adjacent crops, crop

lands or pastures. In particular, avoid spray drift and vapour movement onto susceptible crops

such as cotton, tobacco, tomatoes, vines, fruit trees, ornamentals, and legume crops and

other susceptible plants and trees (Eg. Kurrajongs, Eucalyptus and Belahs).

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK:Low hazard to bees. May be applied on any plants at any time

as recommended.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEA AND ENVIRONMENT:

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

away from children, animals, food, feedstuffs, seed and fertilizers. Do not store for prolonged

periods in direct sunlight. Dispose of excess spray solution and empty containers by burial at an

approved disposal site. Triple (or preferably) pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add

rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemical on-site. Break, crush, or puncture and

bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If not available bury the containers below

500mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways,

vegetation and roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.

SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicity: An information profile for 2,4-D is available at http://extoxnet.orst.edu/pips/ghindex.html

Acute toxicity:The acid form of 2,4-D is classified as “harmful”. The oral LD

of 2,4-D ranges from 375 to 666 mg/kg

in the rat, 370 mg/kg in mice, and from less than 320 to 1000 mg/kg in guinea pigs. The dermal LD

values are 1500

mg/kg in rats and 1400 mg/kg in rabbits, respectively. In humans, prolongedbreathing of 2,4-D causes coughing,

burning, dizziness, and temporary loss of muscle coordination. Other symptoms of poisoning can be fatigue and

weakness with possible nausea. On rare occasions followinghigh levels of exposure, there can be inflammation of

the nerve endings with muscular effects.

Chronic toxicity:Rats given high amounts, 50 mg/kg/day, of 2,4-D inthe diet for 2 years showed no adverse effects.

Dogs fed lower amounts in their foodfor 2 years died, probably because dogs donot excrete organic acids efficiently.

A human given a total of 16.3 g in 32 days therapeutically,lapsed into a stupor and showed signs of incoordination,

weak reflexes, and loss of bladder control.

Reproductive effects:High levels of 2,4-D (about 50 mg/kg/day) administered orally to pregnant rats did not cause

any adverse effects on birth weights orlitter size. The evidence suggests that if2,4-D causes reproductive effects in

animals, this only occurs at very high doses. Thus reproductive problems associated with 2,4-D are unlikely in

humans under normal circumstances.

Teratogenic effects:2,4-D may cause birth defects at high doses. Rats fed 150 mg/kg/day on days 6 to 15 of

pregnancy had offspring with increased skeletal abnormalities, such as delayed bone development and wavy ribs.

This suggests that 2,4-D exposureis unlikely to be teratogenic in humans at expected exposure levels.

Mutagenic effects:2,4-D has been very extensively tested and wasfound to be nonmutagenic in most systems. 2,4-

D did not damage DNA in human lung cells. However, in one study, significant effects occurred in chromosomes in

cultured human cells at low exposure levels. The data suggest that 2,4-D is not mutagenic or has low mutagenic

potential.

Carcinogenic effects:2,4-D fed to rats for 2 years caused an increase in malignant tumours. Female mice given a

single injection of 2,4-D developed cancer (reticulum-cell sarcomas). Another study inrodents shows a low incidence

of brain tumours at moderate exposure levels (45 mg/kg/day) over a lifetime. However, a number of questions have

been raised about the validity of this evidence and thus aboutthe carcinogenic potential of 2,4-D. In humans, a variety

of studies give conflicting results. Several studies suggestan association of 2,4-D exposure with cancer. An increased

occurrence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was found among a Kansas and Nebraska farm population associated with

the spraying of 2,4-D. Other studies done in New Zealand, Washington, New York, Australia, and on Vietnam

veterans from the U.S. were all negative. There remains considerable controversy about the methods used in the

various studies and their results. Thus, thecarcinogenic status of 2,4-D is not clear.

Organ toxicity:Most symptoms of 2,4-D exposure disappear within a few days, but there is a report of liver

dysfunction from long-term exposure.

Fate in humans and animals:The absorption of 2,4-D is almost complete in mammals after ingestion and nearly all

of the dose is excreted in the urine. The compound isreadily absorbed through the skin and lungs. Men given 5

mg/kg excreted about 82% of the dose as unchanged 2,4-D. The half-life is between 10 and 20 hours in living

organisms. There is no evidence that 2,4-D accumulates tosignificant level in mammals or in other organisms.

Between 6 and 8 hours after doses of 1 mg/kg, peak concentrations of 2,4-D were found in the blood, liver, kidney,

lungs, and spleen of rats. There were lower levels inmuscle and brain. After 24 hours, there were no detectable

tissue residues. Only traces of the compound have been found inthe milk of lactating animals for 6 days following

exposure.

There is no data to hand indicating any particular target organs.

Ingredient Risk Phrases

No ingredient mentioned in the HSIS Database is present in this product athazardous concentrations.

SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

This product is biodegradable. It will notaccumulate in the soil or water or cause long term problems.

Effects on birds:2,4-D is harmful to wildfowl and slightlyto moderately toxic to birds. The LD

is 1000 mg/kg in

mallards, 272 mg/kg in pheasants, and 668 mg/kg in quail and pigeons.

Effects on aquatic organisms:Some formulations of 2,4-D are highly toxic to fish while others are less so. Limited

studies indicate a half-life of less than 2 days in fishand oysters. Concentrations of10 mg/L for 85 days did not

adversely affect the survival of adult dungeness crabs. For immature crabs, the 96-hour LC

is greater than 10 mg/L,

indicating that 2,4-D is only slightly toxic. Brown shrimpshowed a small increase in mortality at exposures of 2 mg/L

for 48 hours.

Effects on other organisms:Moderate doses of 2,4-D severely impaired honeybees brood production. At lower

levels of exposure, exposed bees lived significantly longer than the controls. The honeybee LD

is 0.0115 mg/bee.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater:2,4-D has low soil persistence. The half-life in soil is less than 7 days. Soil

microbes are primarily responsible for its disappearance.

Breakdown in water:In aquatic environments, microorganisms readilydegrade 2,4-D. Rates of breakdown increase

with increased nutrients, sediment load, and dissolved organic carbon. Under oxygenated conditions the half-life is 1

week to several weeks.

Breakdown in vegetation:2,4-D interferes with normal plant growthprocesses. Uptake of the compound is through

leaves, stems, and roots. Breakdown in plants is by a variety of biological and chemical pathways. 2,4-D is toxic to

most broad leaf crops, especially cotton, tomatoes, beets, and fruit trees.

SECTION 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Disposal:Special help is available for the disposal of Agricultural Chemicals. The product label will give general

advice regarding disposal of small quantities, and how to cleanse containers. However, for help with the collection of
