General Instructions:

Resistance Warning:

KELPIE GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE is a member of the Glycines group of herbicides.

KELPIE GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE has the inhibition of EPSP synthase mode of

action. For weed resistance management, KELPIE GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE is a

Group M herbicide.

Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other Group M

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 KELPIE GOLD TX 540 GLY

HERBICIDE or other Group M herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Sinochem

International Australia accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of

this product to control resistant weeds.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

Avoid contact with foliage, green bark or stems, canes, laterals, suckers, fresh wounds,

exposed non-woody roots, flowers or fruit of crops, desirable plants and trees, since severe

injury or destruction may result.

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause

spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants, crops, cropping lands or pastures.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or watercourses with the chemical or used

containers.

DO NOT apply to weeds growing in or over water.

DO NOT spray across open bodies of water.

Storage and

Disposal:

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. DO NOT store for

prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple-rinse or preferably pressure rincse 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, or puncture and deliver empty packaging to an approved

waste management facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available,

bury the empty packaging 500 mm below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked

and set up for this purpose, clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in

compliance with relevant local, state or territory government regulations. Do not burn empty

containers or product.

Page 3 of 3

For REFILLABLE containers: Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all

valves and return to point of supply for refill or storage.

Safety Directions:

Will irritate the eyes. May irritate the nose and throat. Repeated exposure may cause

allergic disorders. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. When opening the container, preparing

spray and using the prepared spray wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist or

equivalent clothing, elbow-length PVC or nitrile gloves and face shield or goggles. If product

in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. Wash hands after use. After each days use,

wash gloves, face shield or goggles and contaminated clothing.

Rate Selection Use the lower rate on young weeds; increase to

the higher rate where grasses reach full tillering or where

broadleaf weeds commence stem elongation or budding. Use

higher rates in Spring and under cold conditions.

In Tasmania use 1—2 L/ha with the higher rate for control of

perennial weeds.

Pasture or Crop Establishment Do not sow into excessive

trash. Excessive plant residues may be removed by grazing after

treatment. Planting may proceed from 1 hour of daylight after

application to seedling annual weeds if a satisfactory seedbed can

be created for crop germination and seedling establishment.

Aerial (or Surface) Seeding Delay seeding until trash level is

reduced to allow for satisfactory placement of broadcast seed on

the soil surface.

Bathurst Burr For mature weeds use a higher rate.

Bentgrass Use a rate of 1.7 L/ha. Apply in late Spring following

initiation of seed-head emergence. Follow up with full disturbance

with a tyned implement 10—21 days after spraying.

Couch, Kikuyu, Paspalum Use the higher rate on dense

infestations. Apply sequential treatments during Summer and

Autumn. Repeat application will be required for full control. For

improved control, use in conjunction with cultivation.

Kikuyu, Paspalum Use the low rate for suppression, the high

rate for control.

Dock, Flatweed Use the maximum rate for full control.

Hoary cress Use at a rate of 1 L/ha. Treat from late rosette to

early flowering.

Silvergrass When treating dense infestations of Silvergrass, add

a registered non-ionic surfactant containing 1040 g/L octyl phenol

ethoxylate and use water volumes of 70 L/ha or more and small

Serrated Tussock

2.7—4.0 L

Apply to actively growing and stress free plants. Best results May

Application Boom spray volume of 70 L/ha or more is

recommended to improve plant coverage. Also see AERIAL

EQUIPMENT.

Surfactants Addition of 200 mL of a registered non-ionic

surfactant containing 1040 g/L octyl phenol ethoxylate to 100 L of

spraying solution may improve control of Serrated Tussock.

Site Preparation Burning of Serrated Tussock 10-12 months

before spraying or slashing / heavy grazing (cell grazing) 2

weeks before spraying is essential for good results. (Note:

Serrated Tussock is almost indigestible and prolonged exposure

can lead to starvation and death of stock.)

Rates Use lower rate on Serrated Tussock regrowth after burning

(no residual dead foliage). Use higher rate on Serrated Tussock

that has been slashed or grazed (may contain some residual dead

foliage).

For prevention

of seed head

emergence

and seed

formation

Serrated Tussock

500—840 mL

Apply to actively growing and stress free plants. Best results

obtained during mid September – mid October. Apply prior to any

Surfactants Addition of 200 mL of a registered non-ionic

surfactant containing 1040 g/L octyl phenol ethyoxylate to 100 L of

spraying solution may improve results.

Rates The lower rates will be less damaging to desirable pasture

340—660 mL

Rate Selection Use the lower rates on young weeds and

increase to the higher rate where weeds are dense or well

developed. Dense infestations of some weeds e.g. Barnyard

Grass, Liverseed (Urochloa) Grass may need follow up treatments

for complete control.

Tank mixtures Read and follow all label directions, restraints,

plant-back and withholding periods, regional use restrictions and

safety directions for the tank mix products. Tank mixes with

atrazine may give unacceptable knockdown control of certain

weeds. Do not apply the tank-mix for control of Barnyard Grass,

Liverseed Grass or Milk Thistle. Ammonium sulphate may

enhance knockdown weed control where tank mixtures of atrazine

are used.

Shielded Sprayers Apply KELPIE

GOLD TX 540 GLY

shielded sprayer. Do not apply in Cotton less than 20 cm high.

Do not allow spray or spray drift to contact any part of the cotton

plant as severe injury may result.

Pasture or crop establishment Do not sow into excessive trash.

Excessive plant residues may be removed by grazing after

treatment. Planting may proceed from 1 hour of sunlight after

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Crop Establishment

KELPIE

GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE is recommended for control of emerged weeds prior to crop

establishment. Cultivation and/or planting operations which provide conditions suitable for crop

emergence and establishment are required following herbicide application. Where heavy weed growth

is present or soil conditions are unsuitable, planting should be delayed to allow for decay of weeds

and/or development of more favourable soil conditions for the formation of a suitable seedbed.

Incorporation of green or decaying vegetation may retard crop emergence under cold, wet conditions.

Vegetation may be reduced by grazing and weed decay may be assisted by cultivation to leave trash

on the surface.

Mixing

KELPIE

GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE mixes readily with water. Reduced results may occur if

water is used containing suspended clay or organic matter e.g. from dams, streams or irrigation

channels, or high levels of calcium, magnesium or bicarbonate ions.

Do not mix, store or apply this product in galvanised steel or unlined steel containers or spray tanks,

since a highly flammable gas mixture may be formed. Use stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper,

fibreglass, plastic or plastic lined containers or spray tanks. Spray tanks, pumps, lines and nozzles

should be thoroughly rinsed with clean water following application. Ensure that the sprayer is free of

any residues of previous spray materials prior to mixing. Use spray solutions promptly as a gradual

loss of activity may occur over a period of days following spray preparation.

Mixing Instructions

Fill the spray tank to approximately 50% full. Stop filling tank with water. Commence agitation and

continue throughout the mixing process.

Add any water conditioners (avoid dirty water). For hard water add crystalline ammonium sulphate

(980 g/kg) at 1 kg/100 L spray solution into the tank. Continue agitation.

Add tank mix partners. Make sure each product is completely dispersed before adding the next

product. For further details refer to the Sinochem Tank Mixing Guide (www.sinochem.com.au).

Top up tank with more water to about 75% full, while continuing agitation.

Add KELPIE

GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE and the remaining water. Mix thoroughly.

Add surfactant, if required, near the end of the filling process to minimise foaming.

Always maintain adequate agitation during application and use the tank mix promptly.

Clean all equipment after use by washing thoroughly with water or with a high quality tank and boom

cleaner such as ALL CLEAR

Application

Boom Equipment: For boom application, a spray volume of 80 L/ha or less is recommended for

optimum performance. Nozzles and pressure settings should be selected to deliver a MEDIUM or

MEDIUM-COARSE size droplet at the target (as defined by ASAE S572). The use of nozzles and/or

pressure settings that produce VERY FINE or FINE droplets should be avoided as these are prone to

loss or drift. In multiple product tank mixes, a minimum water volume of 50 L/ha is recommended and

local advice should be sought. Correct mixing order is important as is good in-tank agitation when

application is occurring.

For shielded applications a spray volume of 80 L/sprayed ha is recommended using nozzle types and

pressure settings to deliver a COARSE (ASAE) size droplet at the target. Crop damage may result if

spray drift occurs through incorrect nozzle and/or pressure selection, inadequate shielding and/or

wind strength, high evaporation rates or excessive ground speed.

Wiper Equipment: Wiper equipment (e.g. Ropewick, canvas, felt or carpet applicators) may be used

to apply KELPIE

GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE. Avoid contact with desirable vegetation. Operate

wiper equipment a minimum of 10 cm above the crop or pasture. Weeds should be at least 15 cm

above the crop or pasture at time of application. Speed of travel should be no greater than 8 km/h.

Best results are achieved at lower speeds and where two applications are made in opposite directions

(double pass). Where weeds are of variable height, or occur in dense infestations or clumps, some

plants may not be contacted by the herbicide solution. In these cases repeat treatment may be

necessary. RATE: Mix 700 mL KELPIE

GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE with 2.3 litres clean water.

Adjust flow rate to suit equipment.

Aerial Equipment: KELPIE

GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE may be applied by aircraft for control of

weeds in forests, cropland or pasture prior to establishment of crops, new pastures or new forest

plantings and for pre-harvest applications to sorghum and cotton crops up to a maximum rate of 2.7 L/

ha where specified by this label. DO NOT apply treatments by aircraft in situations where drift onto

sensitive crops and pastures is likely to occur.

Apply treatments using boom or Micronair equipment using a spray volume not less than 20 L/ha and

using settings to produce a MEDIUM droplet size of 250-350 microns. Swath width should be set to

take into account aircraft type, wind conditions and target height. Swath width will need to be reduced

to avoid stripping under light wind conditions and/or application to tall, dense targets, e.g. pre-harvest

application, treatments in heavy crop stubble. Thoroughly wash aircraft, especially landing gear, after

each day of spraying to remove herbicide residues.

Application on hilly terrain

Increase water volume to 30-80 L/ha and increase droplet diameter of output to at least 300 microns

to optimise deposition of spray output onto weeds.

Air temperature and relative humidity

DO NOT apply KELPIE

GOLD TX 540 GLY HERBICIDE by aircraft at temperatures above 30

degrees Celsius. Increase water volume output to at least 30 L/ha when temperatures rise above 25

degrees Celsius. Avoid application when relative humidity falls below 35%.

AVOID DRIFT

DO NOT apply treatments with spraying equipment or under weather conditions which are likely to

cause spray drift onto nearby susceptible crops, pastures or other sensitive plants. DO NOT apply

treatments under very light winds (less than 4 km/h) or inversion conditions or where wind speeds

exceed 12 km/h.

Application checklist

Do not treat weeds under poor growing conditions due to moisture stress, waterlogging, severe

frosting, insect damage etc. Reduced performance may also occur where weeds are covered with

dust or silt.

Do not add surfactants, adjuvants or other pesticides except as specifically directed on this label.

Rain within 1 hour of application which causes run-off may require re-treatment. Rainfastness is

reduced if weeds are not actively growing, under stress or conditions of low light

intensity/darkness. The addition of a registered non-ionic surfactant containing 1040 g/L octyl

phenol ethoxylate may improve rainfastness on winter annual weeds.

A withholding period for grazing is not required. However, it is recommended that grazing of

treated plants be delayed to ensure herbicide uptake. Certain plants such as Soursob, Variegated

Thistle, Sorghum and Johnson Grass may be naturally toxic to stock when eaten in large

quantities under certain conditions. Where plants are known to be toxic, grazing should be

delayed until complete browning of treated plants has occurred.

Apply treatments to weeds which have at least one true leaf (broadleaf weeds) or two leaves

(grasses) to provide an adequate surface area for herbicide uptake.

If heavy grazing has occurred, allow regrowth to 6-8 cm before spraying and use the higher rates

recommended.
