Trade Advice:

General

Instructions:

Best results are obtained when application is made to a cool wet soil.

MIXING:

Prior to pouring, shake container vigorously, then add the required quantity of Kerb 500 SC

to water in the spray vat while stirring or with agitators in motion. DO NOT mix with other

pesticides.

EQUIPMENT

The product should be applied with properly calibrated spray equipment. Select nozzles to

give uniform ground cover. Equipment which has previously been used for the application

of other weed killers must be thoroughly decontaminated before use. A suggested method

is: Drain the tank, hoses and boom completely of any remaining residues. Flush with water

and drain completely. Refill with a solution containing 300 mL household ammonia per

120 litres of water with detergent. Leave to stand overnight, drain and finally flush again

thoroughly with clean water. Wash spray equipment thoroughly after use.

Resistance

Warning:

Kerb is a member of the amide group of herbicides. Kerb belongs to the herbicide

group with diverse sites of action. For weed resistance management, Kerb is a Group

D herbicide. Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to Kerb and other Group

D 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 Kerb or other Group D

herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistance weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Dow

AgroSciences Australia Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the

failure of Kerb to control resistant weeds.

Strategies to minimise the risk of herbicide resistance are available. Contact your farm

chemical supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture, or local Dow AgroSciences

representative.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

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

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

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK, WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

Storage and

Disposal:

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

prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

DO NOT store near fertilisers, insecticides, fungicides and seeds.

Protect from frost.

This container can be recycled if it is clean, dry, free of visible residues and has the

drumMUSTER logo visible. Triple or pressure rinse containers for disposal. Dispose of

rinsate by adding it to the spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Wash

outside of the container and the cap. Store cleaned container in a sheltered place with the

cap removed. It will then be acceptable for recycling at any drumMUSTER collection or

mutagenic

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION:

MOVEMENT & PARTITIONING:

Due to low fish bioconcentration factors (range of 21-77),

propyzamide is not expected to bioconcentrate in aquatic

environments. Propyzamide is a moderately to slightly

mobile in in soils with high clay content where the material is

also actively degraded.

DEGRADATION & PERSISTENCE:

Propyzamide readily

degrades in soil and water and is extensively metabolised by

plants and animals. The half-life of propyzamide is about 30

days in both soil and water, and is expected

dissipate in

terrestrial and aquatic aerobic environments over weeks or

possibly months.

ECOTOXICOLOGY: P

ropyzamide, is considered non-toxic to

bees and birds and of low toxicity to fish (rainbow trout are the

most sensitive species tested; 96-hr LC

is 4.7 mg/L) and

aquatic invertebrates such as Daphnia magna (48 hr LC

>5.6 mg/L). Propyzamide is very toxic to aquatic plants

(duckweed 14-day EC

= 1.18 mg/L). Blue-green algae 5-day

= > 4 mg/L). Propyzamide is non-toxic to earthworms and

honey bees.

Glossary

ACGIH: American Conference of Governmental Industrial

Hygienists.

BCF: Bioconcentration Factor - a measure for the

characterization of the accumulation of a chemical in an organism.

It is defined as the concentration of a chemical in an organism

(plants, microorganisms, animals) divided by the concentration in

a reference compartment (e.g. food, surrounding water).

BOD: Biochemical oxygen demand. The amount of oxygen

required by aerobic microorganisms to decompose the organic

matter in a sample of water, such as that polluted by sewage. It is

used as a measure of the degree of water pollution. Also called

biological oxygen demand.

Dow AgroSciences Industrial Hygiene Guideline: An internal

company standard based on an 8 hour TWA.
