DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Restraints:

DO NOT apply if rain is expected within 6 hours.

DO NOT apply to weeds under stress due to, for example, very

dry, very wet, frosty or diseased conditions.

DO NOT apply under hot dry conditions (temperature above 33 °C and relative humidity

below 50%).

See list of weeds

below

100 to

product

per 100 L

The rate to use is determined by the following criteria:

WEED SPECIES

WEED STA

GE OF GROWTH

WEED DENSITY

CLIMA

TIC CONDITIONS

WEED SPECIES

Apply the appropriate rate to control the least susceptible weed

present as per the list of w

eeds controlled in the accompanying

tables.

WEED STAGE OF GROWTH

Use the lower rate when weeds are young and succulent (grasses –

pre-tillering; broadleaves – coty

ledons to 4-leaf). A median rate

should be used for medium sized plants (grasses – tillering;

broadleaves – 4-leaf to advanced stage) and the high rate should be

used when weeds are mature (grasses – noding to flowering;

broadleaves – budding to flowering). Weeds that have been

hardened or stunted in growth due to stressed conditions should be

treated at the maximum rate.

WEED DENSITY

Use lower rates when the weed population is very sparse and higher rates when

eeds are dense. Thorough coverage of weeds is essential for good control.

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS

Best results are achieved when applied under w

arm, humid conditions. Good

results will be achieved under most other conditions however poor results may

occur under hot, dry conditions (temperatures above 33 ° C and relative humidity

below 50%).

Coverage

Complete coverage of weeds is essential for good control. Poor

coverage may

result in re-growth.

Symptoms

Visible symptoms of control appear in 3 to 7 days, but complete

dessication may

take 20 to 30 days under cool conditions.

Perennial Weeds

Apply when weeds are actively growing. Apply rates towards the

er end of the range when weeds are young (seedlings); growing

under non-stressed conditions and the weed population is sparse.

Apply rates towards the higher end of the range when weed

population is dense and well advanced. Thorough coverage of

weeds is essential for good control. Follow up treatments will be

necessary to control re-growth in most cases.

General

Handgun and knapsack rates are based on the application of 1000 L of spray

mixture per spray

ed hectare. This is usually adequate to thoroughly wet dense

stands of weeds. Less dense stands will require lower water rates (see “Mixing”

in General Instruction). Finale does not provide residual weed control.

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

UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

WITHHOLDING PERIOD:

DO NOT GRAZE OR CUT TREATED AREAS FOR STOCK FEED FOR 8 WEEKS AFTER APPLICATION

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING:

GROUP

N

HERBICIDE

Finale Non-Selective Herbicide is a member of the glycine group of herbicides. Finale is an inhibitor

of glutamine synthetase. For weed resistance management Finale Non-Selective Herbicide is a group

N herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Finale Non-Selective Herbicide and

other herbicides which inhibit glutamine synthetase, 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 Finale Non-Selective

Herbicide or other Group N herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect

prior to use, Bayer CropScience accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of

Finale Non-Selective Herbicide to control resistant weeds.

Activity

Finale is a non-volatile, water-soluble liquid total herbicide with non-selective activity against

many annual and perennial broad-leaf weeds and grasses.

Finale is absorbed by plant foliage and green stems. It is inactive in soil and does not provide

residual w

eed control. Finale is not translocated as an active herbicide throughout the plant,

and therefore will only kill that part of the plant that is contacted by spray. Best results are

achieved when application is made under good growing conditions. Application to weeds

under stress (eg. due to continuous severe frosts, dry or waterlogged conditions) should be

avoided.

Mixing Instructions

Finale mixes readily with water. Clean water should always be used for mixing with Finale.

Ensure that the spray tank is free of any residues of previous spray materials. Two thirds fill

the spray tank with clean water, and with the agitator operating add the required amount of

Finale. Top up the tank to the required volume with clean water with agitator running.

Application

Ground Sprayers:

Aim to apply a thorough and even coverage of spray to the target plant. Dense stands of weeds

should be thoroughly wetted with spray. Incomplete coverage may result in poor control. Equipment

should be such that adequate coverage, penetration and volume of spray liquid can be achieved. High

volume application using hollow-cone nozzles for hand spraying is recommended.

Clean all equipment after use by thoroughly flushing with water.

Knapsack and Handgun equipment:

Finale should be applied at label rates in adequate water to thoroughly wet the weeds being

sprayed, ie. 500 to 1000 L/ha. Dense stands will require up to 1000 L/ha of spray mixture as

per the lists of weeds controlled, however less dense stands will require less water

Compatibility

Finale is compatible with most residual herbicides. For further details contact your nearest

Bayer Environmental Science representative. The addition of a wetting agent is generally not

considered necessary, however, benefit has been obtained using a wetting agent on hard to

wet weeds when using water rates in excess of 500 L/ha.

Medical attention

Glufosinate-ammonium is a glutamine synthetase inhibitor and can interfere with

urotransmitter function.

Symptoms

Local – irritation of eyes, skin, respiratory tract

Systemic - Sh

ivering, cramps, gastrointestinal complaints, hyperthermia, dyspnoea,

bradycardia/tachycardia, convulsions, respiratory depression, amnesia, drowsiness and/or loss

of consciousness. These symptoms may be delayed from a few hours to up to 48 hours after

exposure. Therefore, regardless of the amount ingested, the patient must be admitted to

hospital for at least 36 hours and treated immediately as outlined below.

Treatment

Emergency measures: Symptomatic treatment and administration of antidotes,

decontamination.

If ingested, endotracheal intubation and gastric lavage should be performed as soon as

sible, followed by administration of charcoal and sodium sulphate solution.

Anticonvulsant therapy: Phenobarbital-sodium, 1 mg/kg intramuscularly or subcutaneously

unti

l maximum 5 mg/kg daily; when necessary, 10 mg diazepam slowly intravenously. Repeat

as necessary until fully sedated.

Elimination by dialysis (forced alkaline diuresis) and/or haemo-perfusion. It is essential that this

be done soon after ingestion to be effective.

ECG (EKG) (electrocardiogram) monitoring

EEG (electroencephalogram) monitoring

Apply artificial respiration as necessar

y. If necessary give oxygen.

Monitor respiratory, cardiac, central nervous system, electrolyte balance (especially for

hypokalemia) and signs of increased intracranial pressure.

If a large amount has been ingested, keep under medical supervision for at least 48 hours.

Contraindication: Atropine, as glufosinate-ammonium does not inhibit cholinesterase.

Recovery is normally spontaneous, usually within 48 hours.
