PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

Drift Warning: DO NOT use with spraying equipment or under meteorological conditions which could be

expecte

d to cause spray drift onto nearby susceptible plants, adjacent crops, crop lands or pastures.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK, WILDLIFE, FISH,

CRUSTACEANS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Domestic pets and poultry – keep away from treated areas. Do n

ot repack. DO NOT contaminate ponds,

waterways or ditches with the chemical or used container. This formulation should not be applied on or near

water which is used for human consumption, livestock watering, or irrigation purposes or water used for

commercial or recreational fishing. For ground application only - do not use this formulation through

aircraft, misting machines (except in banana plantations) or hand-held ultra low volume controlled droplet

applicators (CDA units).

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a dry, well-ve

ntilated, locked room or place away from children,

animals, food, feedstuffs, seed and fertilisers. 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.

Break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local a

uthority landfill. If not available, bury the

containers below 500mm 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

Very dangerous, particularly the concentrate.

Product is poisonous if swallowed.

Will irritate the nose, throat and skin.

Attacks eyes, protect eyes while using.

Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.

When opening the container and preparing for use, wear elb

ow-length PVC gloves, face shield or goggles.

If product on skin, immediately wash area with soap and water.

If clothing becomes contaminated with prod

uct, remove clothing immediately.

If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. Avoid conta

ct with spray mist. Do not inhale spray

mist.

After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wa

sh hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and

water.

After each day’s use, wash gloves and face shiel

d or goggles and contaminated clothing.

SPRAY APPLICATION

Do not work in spray mist.

Do not continue to use if skin irritation or nosebleed occurs. This may be caused by exposure to spray mist

as the result

of incorrect use of equipment or adverse climatic conditions. Stop and review handling and

spraying techniques before further spraying. If symptoms persist, seek medical advice.

When using misting machines for weed control in banana pla

ntations, cut back to run at half throttle, thus

preventing the production of fine droplets, the inhalation of which may be dangerous.

When using misting machines in banana plantations, or whe

re there is a risk of exposure to spray mist,

wear waterproof footwear and waterproof protective clothing, impervious gauntlet-length gloves (rubber or

PVC), goggles and a face mask and respirator covering nose and mouth and capable of filtering spray

droplets. A high efficiency type particulate respirator is recommended, but in any event use a respirator,

which complies with the requirements of AS1716 (Standards Association of Australia). Further advice on

safety equipment should be obtained from a safety equipment manufacturer.

Avoid contacting vegetation wet with spray, but if necessary to do

so, wear waterproof footwear and

waterproof protective clothing and gloves.

FIRST AID

If poisoning occurs get to a doctor or hospital quickly (Tel: 13 11 26

). If in eyes, hold eyes open, flood with

water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.

NOTE TO PHYSICIANS

For additional advice on the treatment of Paraquat poisoning, plea

se consult the booklet “The Treatment of

Paraquat Poisoning: A Guide for Doctors”.

a better seed bed will result if cultivation is

delayed 3-5 days.

Use higher rates for dense, more mature

eed stands. Wild oats must have at least

two leaves. If Diquat 200g/L is used, the

lower Paraquat 250 rate should be

sufficient to control dense, mature weeds.

Pasture: Remains of old pasture should be

species of barley grass (H. glaucum – common

barley grass is H. leporinum) resistant to

Paraquat-based products has become

established. It may re-grow after an initial scorch

by Paraquat 250. Where this problem is

As an aid to managing ryegrass

resist

ance. For use on escapes from a

pervious herbicide application in the

current crop.

Spray the crop when the ryegrass is at the

optimum stag

e, that is when the last

ryegrass seed heads at the bottom of the

plant have emerged and the majority are at

or just past flowering (with anthers present or

glumes open) but before haying off is evident

– usually October to November. Use of the

higher rate in these crops is usually more

reliable and gives a greater reduction in seed

set.

Reduction in crop yield may occur especially

if the crop is le

ss advanced relative to the

ryegrass, that is if crops have a majority of

green immature pods. The higher rate may

also increase any yield reduction. In

practice, crop losses in excess of 25% may

occur. Apply by ground boom only in 50-

100L/ha. Spray with a calibrated boom

spray raised to give double overlap at the

level of the ryegrass seed heads. Pressures

of 250-350 kPa and use of 110015 or 02

nozzles or equivalent will aid coverage.

but new leaves will appear in 7-10

days.

Between the 3-4 leaf stage and the

formation of th

directed, interspace spray with

droppers and/or shields or leaf

deflectors to avoid excessive drift

onto cane foliage while spraying up to

the cane bases. Use coarse nozzles

such as flood jets (reflex nozzles) and

pressure of 100-200 kPa. After the

formation of the true stem, which is

resistant to Paraquat 250, droppers

can be raised to overlap the spray

pattern to give weed control in the

more mature weeds. Paraquat 250

can be mixed with Atrazine granules

to give residual weed control when

used as a directed spray. It may also

be mixed with Diuron WG Herbicide.

Apply mid-winter to early summer.

Use the higher rate for dense weed

growth. After desiccation is complete,

the sprayed area may be burnt

(normally 7-10 days after spraying).

Paraquat 250 can be combined with

soil residual herbicides: Atrazine WG

Herbic

ide, Diuron WG Herbicide or

Simazine 900 granules Herbicide to

give rapid knockdown and prolonged

weed control.

READ ALL SAFETY DIRECTIONS before commencing work.

Do not use hand-held, ultra low volume controlled d

roplet applicators (CDA units), boomless jets or

misting machines (except in banana plantations).

Mixing

Add the req

uired quantity of product to water in the spray tank and agitate to give even mixing. Agitate

again if left standing.

We

tting Agent

This product contains a wetting agent and additional wetter is not required unless high volume

spraying results in excessive dilution of the wetter content. This will occur when product rates fall

below 400mL per 100L of spray. Under such circumstances, wetter should be added at the rate of

60mL of 1000g/L NON-IONIC SURFACTANT per 100L of spray mix. Where Fat Hen or Portulaca are

present in orchard or vineyard situations, extra wetter should be used when this product ratio is less

than 800mL per 100L. Add wetter at double the above recommendations. Do not use alkaline or

anionic wetting agents.

Clean Water

Mix this prod

uct with clean water only. Water should be clean and free from clay, silt and algae.

Providing it meets this requirement, saline water, water collected from roofs, bore water, dam water

and water from creeks may be used.

Application

(i)

Cereals and Broadacre Spraying

Use only through a properly calibrated boom spray, which should be fitted with flat-fan jets and

adju

sted to a height to give at least double overlap of the spray at the top of the weeds being

sprayed. Spraying pressures should be in the range of 200-300 kPa. Speed of travel should

be in the range of 6-15 km/hr. It is essential that a good marking system be used. If a disc

marked is used, it must be mounted so as to turn the soil back on to the area sprayed. It is

essential to obtain good leaf coverage with the spray and volumes of dilute spray must be

adjusted according to density of weed growth. 100L/ha may be used for seedlings or well

grazed weeds up to 2cm high. For plant height 2-5cm, use 150L/ha and up to 6-10 cm use

200L/ha. Spray volumes may be as low as 50L/ha (30L/ha in WA) for weed growth below 5cm

high, or for spray topping and hay freezing. Equipment must be appropriate to this volume,

properly calibrated and fitted with spraying tips designed to give droplets in the 200-250u

Volume Median Diameter Range.

READ ALL SAFETY DIRECTIONS before commencing work.

(ii)

High Volume Applications

High

er volumes will generally be required to give good coverage of weed growth in situations

other than those specified under cereals and other broadacre crops.

READ ALL SAFETY DIRECTIONS before commencing work.

(iii)

sh spray equipment with clean water immediately after use. This product is highly

corrosive to metals particularly galvanised iron and aluminium and should not be left for long

periods in tanks or equipment made of these materials.

Compatibility

This p

roduct combines satisfactorily with Atrazine WG, Diuron WG and Simazine WG where prolonged

weed control is required as well as quick knockdown.

Spra

ying Conditions

Avoid spraying plants under stress from waterlogging, frost and drought etc. or covered with dust and

soil. Results will be better if application is made in dull weather or at the end of the day. Light rain

following spraying will not affect results. Avoid drift into neighbouring crops.

Resistant Weeds Warning

Halley Paraquat 250 Herbicide is a member of the bipyridyl gro

up of herbicides. Halley Paraquat 250 Herbicide

has the “photosynthesis at photosystem I inhibitor” mode of action. For weed resistance management, Halley

Paraquat 250 Herbicide is a Group L herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Halley

Paraquat 250 Herbicide and other “photosynthesis at photosystem I inhibitor” 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 Halley

Paraquat 250 Herbicide or other “photosynthesis at photosystem I inhibitor” herbicides. Since the occurrence

of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Halley International Enterprise (Australia) Pty Ltd accepts

no responsibility for any losses that may result from failure of Halley Paraquat 250 Herbicide to control

resistant weeds.

This product kills annual grasses and most annual broadle

afed weeds (excluding capeweed) in specific

situations and should not be used for any other purpose. Quickly kills green plant tissue on contact. Is

immediately inactivated in the soil. At spraying, weeds should be growing vigorously and must not be covered

with soil or heavy dew. The principle of selective weeds control with this product is that annual weeds are

killed but perennial plants and clovers recover after an initial scorch. The control of annual weeds by spraying

with this product will allow the desirable perennial species to thicken up at the expense of the weeds. Moisture

and fertility should not be limiting at spraying and the proportion of desirable species must be great enough for

them to fill in the areas previously occupied by weeds. Long-term weed control can be obtained following the

quick knockdown given by this product if it is combined with soil residual chemicals.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

Drift Warning: DO NOT use with spraying equipment or under meteorological conditions which could be

expecte

d to cause spray drift onto nearby susceptible plants, adjacent crops, crop lands or pastures.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK, WILDLIFE, FISH,

CRUSTACEANS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Domestic pets and poultry – keep away from treated areas. Do n

ot repack. DO NOT contaminate ponds,

waterways or ditches with the chemical or used container. This formulation should not be applied on or near

water which is used for human consumption, livestock watering, or irrigation purposes or water used for

commercial or recreational fishing. For ground application only - do not use this formulation through

aircraft, misting machines (except in banana plantations) or hand-held ultra low volume controlled droplet

applicators (CDA units).

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a dry, well-ve

ntilated, locked room or place away from children,

animals, food, feedstuffs, seed and fertilisers. 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.

Break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local a

uthority landfill. If not available, bury the

containers below 500mm 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.

After each day’s use, wash gloves and face shiel

d or goggles and contaminated clothing.

SPRAY APPLICATION

Do not work in spray mist.

Do not continue to use if skin irritation or nosebleed occurs. This may be caused by exposure to spray mist

as the result

of incorrect use of equipment or adverse climatic conditions. Stop and review handling and

spraying techniques before further spraying. If symptoms persist, seek medical advice.

When using misting machines for weed control in banana pla

ntations, cut back to run at half throttle, thus

preventing the production of fine droplets, the inhalation of which may be dangerous.

When using misting machines in banana plantations, or whe

re there is a risk of exposure to spray mist,

wear waterproof footwear and waterproof protective clothing, impervious gauntlet-length gloves (rubber or

PVC), goggles and a face mask and respirator covering nose and mouth and capable of filtering spray

droplets. A high efficiency type particulate respirator is recommended, but in any event use a respirator,

which complies with the requirements of AS1716 (Standards Association of Australia). Further advice on

safety equipment should be obtained from a safety equipment manufacturer.

Avoid contacting vegetation wet with spray, but if necessary to do

so, wear waterproof footwear and

waterproof protective clothing and gloves.

FIRST AID

If poisoning occurs get to a doctor or hospital quickly (Tel: 13 11 26

). If in eyes, hold eyes open, flood with

water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.
