Before opening, carefully read warning statement, precautions instructions, first aid instructions and directions

for use. Flame is a selective herbicide that will control or suppress broadleaf weeds in crops or pasture while

selectivity to clovers, lucerne and chicory is preserved. It is best applied to weeds during active growth. Do not

apply in cold wet conditions. Flame should always be applied with suitable mineral spraying oil.


Apply through correctly calibrated spraying equipment to ensure complete spraying coverage.

WARNING: Application equipment must be decontaminated BEFORE and AFTER the application of Flame. See

Sprayer Decontamination section for details.

Boom (ground or aerial) application: Use 100 -300 litres of water per hectare. Use the higher rate where

weeds are dense to ensure that all weed foliage is thoroughly covered.

Controlled Droplet Application (CDA) application: Use not less than 30 litres/ha of water/ha with a droplet

size of 250-300 microns. Trials indicate that CDA application may result in less effective weed control than

conventional boom spraying.


Add the required amount of Flame to the partly filled spray tank with the agitation system running. Complete

filling before adding any spraying oil, and maintain agitation throughout mixing and application. When tank

mixing, Flame should be added first, followed by wettable powders or other dry flowable formulations,

suspicion concentrates (flowable), aqueous concentrates, emulsifiable concentrates and then add suitable

mineral oil last.


Seek advice or check compatibility of Flame with other commonly used herbicides. Do not mix Flame with

spraying oil when using with triazine herbicides on lucerne.


Before applying Flame:

If the equipment has been used to apply sulfonyl urea herbicides, and if a spraying oil is to be used, then the

equipment must be decontaminated according to the instructions on the sulfonyl urea product label. Small

amounts of sulfonyl urea from the inside surfaces of the spraying equipment may severely affect the crop

being treated.

After applying Flame:

Always wash tank and flush equipment thoroughly with clean water after use. To avoid subsequent injury to

sensitive crops, immediately after spraying thoroughly remove all traces of Flame from mixing and spraying

equipment as follows:

Drain tank, then flush tank, booms and hoses with clean water.

Quarter fill the tank with clean water and add 500 g of an alkali detergent per 100 litres of water.

Circulate through the system for at least 15 minutes with agitation, then drain.

Drain the whole system.

Nozzles and filters should be removed and cleaner separately.

Finally, rinse tank thoroughly with clean water, flush through hoses and booms and allow to drain.


Do not spray if rain is expected within 6 hours.
