Whenever sugarcane is sprayed directly with Daconate or mixtures containing

Daconate some visual damage is to be expected. Usually this will grow-out

within 3 weeks. Some sugarcane varieties are more sensitive to

herbicide spray damage than others and the non directed, full cover

spraying, of a susceptible sugar cane variety at a vulnerable stage of

cane growth, can result in unacceptable crop phytotoxicity. Local

varietal responses should be confirmed before any full cover spraying

of large areas is undertaken. Apply as a directed spray. Minimise, so far as

practicable, contact with sugarcane foliage which will be 50 - 80 mm high at

time of spraying. Select a lower rate than 6.0 L/ha if target grasses are not

beyond early tillering stage, or when using tank-mix with either Diurex ® WG

or Velpar® K4. The addition of Agral wetting agent will improve the activity

Apply as a directed spray in fine clear weather to prevent Guinea grass

establishing in plant cane or early ratoon cane. Minimise, so far as

practicable, contact with sugarcane foliage which can be 50 - 80 cm high at

time of spraying. Best results are achieved if spraying takes place when

Guinea grass is at the seedling stage when stools are small. Spraying at this

time generally means only one spray application is needed. Use sufficient

spray volume to thoroughly wet all Guinea grass plants. If weeds are large

and dense then a water volume greater than 300 L/ha will be required. Under

certain circumstances (for example when the Guinea grass population is very

dense) the herbicide tank mixture can be applied over the top of the

sugarcane. Whenever sugarcane is sprayed directly with Daconate or

mixtures containing Daconate some visual damage is to be expected. Usually

this damage will grow out within 3 weeks. Some sugarcane varieties are

more sensitive to herbicide spray damage than others and the non

directed, full cover spraying, of a susceptible sugar cane variety at a

vulnerable stage of cane growth, can result in unacceptable crop

phytotoxicity. Local varietal responses should be confirmed before any

full cover spraying of large areas is undertaken. Assess the sprayed area

3 weeks after initial treatment. Follow up with another directed boom spray

application or a spot spray treatment. The method of treatment used will

depend on the weed population remaining and/or the number of Guinea grass

plants still having central green leaves. If storm rain falls after treatment it is

important to monitor for the emergence of new Guinea grass seedlings.

paspalum is at the seedling stage when stools are small. Use sufficient spray

volume to thoroughly wet all Vasey grass plants. If weeds are large and

dense then a water volume greater than 300 L/ha will be required. Directed

spray application from both sides of the cane row is effective and relatively

safe on the cane. Under certain circumstances (for example when the Vasey

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

This product contains a high level of surfactant. Additional wetting agent should not be required

except as directed for use in Sugarcane. Apply under hot, dry conditions when air temperature is

above 25

C for best results. For couch in NSW see Critical Comments. Thorough spray coverage of

weed foliage is required for good results. Spray is absorbed mainly through plant foliage and spray

solution reaching the soil is inactivated. Treated weeds yellow and brown 3 - 10 days after treatment.

Resistant weeds warning

Daconate Post Emergence Herbicide is a member of the group of herbicides with diverse sites of

action. For weed resistance management Daconate is a Group K herbicide. Some naturally occurring

weed biotypes resistant to Daconate may exist through normal genetic variability in any weed

population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the weed population if this herbicide is

used repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by Daconate.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Crop Care Australasia Pty Ltd

accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Daconate to control resistant

weeds.

MIXING: The product mixes readily with water. Add to half full tank with agitation, and then finish

filling tank.

CLEANING UP: Wash out equipment with clean water immediately after use.

COMPATIBILITY: Tank mixes with other herbicides including 2,2,-DPA, diuron, hexazinone, bromacil,

fluometuron, sodium TCA, and amines and esters of 2,4-D can be made for specific weeds and/or

residual control.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

DO NOT apply under weather conditions or from spraying equipment which may cause spray to drift

onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Dangerous to fish. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways, with the chemical or used

containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a well-ventilated area as cool as possible and away from

children, animals, food, feedstuffs, seed and fertilizers. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct

sunlight. Triple or (preferably) pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank.

DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on-site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers

to recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush, puncture 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.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS

Poisonous if absorbed by skin contact or swallowed. May irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact

with eyes and skin. When preparing the spray and using the prepared spray wear cotton overalls
