application to move the chemical into the weed root zone. Add surfactant where

recommended. When spraying emerged weeds best results are obtained when weeds are

actively growing. Thoroughly clean all traces of this product from application equipment

immediately after use, otherwise injury to desirable vegetation may result when equipment

is used again. Flush tank, pump, hose and boom with several changes of water after

removing nozzle tips and screens (clean these parts separately). Keep from contact with

fertilisers, insecticides, fungicides and seeds.

MIXING

Partly fill spray tank with water, and agitate while adding the product steadily. Continue

agitation after filling and during spraying.

Agitation: An efficient by-pass agitator or means of mechanical agitation should be

employed when using this product.

Diquat, Imtrade Paraquat 250 Herbicide, Imtrade Amitrole 250 Herbicide, 2,4-D Amine

and Ester, 2,4-DB, MCPA, Chlorpyrifos, Omethoate and Chlorsulfuron. Add the required

Resistance

Warning:

Imtrade Diuron 900 WG Herbicide is a member of the Ureas group of herbicides. For weed

resistance management Imtrade Diuron 900 WG Herbicide is a Group C Herbicide. Some

naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Imtrade Diuron 900 WG Herbicide and other

Group C 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 Imtrade Diuron 900

WG Herbicide or other Group C Herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is

difficult to detect prior to use, Imtrade Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses

that may result from the failure of Imtrade Diuron 900 WG Herbicide to control resistant

weeds.

This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non

hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5

day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no longer

than 15 minutes and should not be repeated more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the

STEL. The term "peak "is used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

any doubts, contact the supplier for advice on shelf life properties.

Conditions to Avoid:

Protect this product from light. Store in the closed original container in a dry, cool, well-

ventilated area out of direct sunlight.

Incompatibilities:

strong acids, strong bases, strong oxidising agents.

Fire Decomposition:

Carbon dioxide, and if combustion is incomplete, carbon monoxide and smoke. Nitrogen and

its compounds, and under some circumstances, oxides of nitrogen. Occasionally hydrogen cyanide gas. Hydrogen

chloride gas, other compounds of chlorine. Water. Carbon monoxide poisoning produces headache, weakness,

nausea, dizziness, confusion, dimness of vision, disturbance of judgment, and unconsciousness followed by coma

and death. Hydrogen cyanide poisoning signs and symptoms are weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting,

coma, convulsions, and death. Death results from respiratory arrest. Hydrogen cyanide gas acts very rapidly;

symptoms and death can both occur quickly.

Polymerisation:

This product will not undergo polymerisation reactions.

SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicity:

An information profile for Diuron is available at http://extoxnet.orst.edu/pips/ghindex.html

Acute toxicity: Diuron is classified as not harmful to mammals. The oral LD

in rats is 3400 mg/kg. The dermal LD

is greater than 2000 mg/kg. Some signs of central nervous system depression have been noted at high levels of

Diuron exposure. For humans, the only reported case of acute, oral exposure to the herbicide produced no significant

symptoms or toxicity.

Chronic toxicity: Male rats given extremely high doses of Diuron over a 2-week period showed changes in their

spleen and bone marrow. Other chronic effects attributed to moderate to high doses of the pesticide over time

included changes in blood chemistry, increased mortality, growth retardation, abnormal blood pigment, and anaemia.

When fed small amounts of Diuron in food for 2 years, animal species showed no adverse effects.

Reproductive effects: Daily low doses of Diuron fed to female rats through three successive generations caused

significantly decreased body weight of offspring in the second and third litters. The fertility rate remained unaffected. It

is unlikely that Diuron will cause reproductive effects in humans at expected levels of exposure.

Teratogenic effects: Diuron is teratogenic at high doses. Administered to pregnant rats on days 6 through 15 of

gestation, it produced no birth defects in the offspring at doses of up to 125 mg/kg/day. However, doses of 250

mg/kg/day caused wavy ribs, extra ribs, and delayed bone formation. There were also weight decreases in offspring

at 500 mg/kg/day. There was no increase in the severity of the rib deformation at this higher dose. Pregnant mice

Poisons Information Centre: 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia, (0800 764 766 in New Zealand)

given very high doses of Diuron (nearly 2000 mg/kg/day) exhibited reproductive and embryotoxic effects.

Developmental effects were found in their offspring.

Mutagenic effects: Diuron does not appear to be mutagenic. The majority of tests have shown that Diuron does not

produce mutations in animal cells or in bacterial cells.

Carcinogenic effects: Limited evidence indicates that low level exposures to Diuron does not cause cancer.

Organ toxicity: Low doses of Diuron over extended periods of time can cause enlargement to the liver and the

spleen.

Fate in humans and animals: Diuron is excreted in the faeces and urine of test animals. Breakdown of the

compound is similar in animals, plants, and soil. Cows fed very low doses of Diuron in their diets had small amounts

of residues in whole milk. Cattle fed small amounts accumulated low levels of Diuron in fat and muscle, liver, and

kidney.

Conc>=25%: Xn; R40; R22; R48/22

SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Effects on birds: Diuron is slightly toxic to birds. In bobwhite quail, the dietary LC

is 1730 ppm. In Japanese quail

and ring-necked pheasant, it is greater than 5000 ppm. The LC

is approximately 5000 ppm in mallard ducks.

Effects on aquatic organisms: The LC

(48 hour) values for Diuron range from 4.3 mg/L to 42 mg/L in fish, and

range from 1 mg/L to 2.5 mg/L for aquatic invertebrates. The LC

(96-hour) is 3.5 mg/L for rainbow trout. Thus,

Diuron is moderately toxic to fish and highly toxic to aquatic invertebrates.

Effects on other organisms: Diuron is non-toxic to bees.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Diuron is moderately to highly persistent in soils. Residue half -lives are from

1 month to 1 year. Some pineapple fields contained residues 3 years after the last application. Mobility in the soil is

related to organic matter and to the type of the residue. The metabolites are less mobile than the parent compound. In

California, Diuron has been found in groundwater in the 2 to 3 ppb range. It has also been found in Ontario

groundwater where it has been linked with land applications.

Breakdown in water: Diuron is relatively stable in neutral water. Microbes are the primary agents in the degradation

of Diuron in aquatic environments.

Breakdown in vegetation: Diuron is readily absorbed through the root system of plants and less readily through the

leaves and stems.
