GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Linurex® Flowable Herbicide contains 450 g/L Linuron. Linurex Flowable can be applied

pre and post-emergence to control certain annual grasses, broadleaved weeds and

some seedling perennial weeds in cereal, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, coriander, onions,

soybeans, maize and sweet corn. Linurex Flowable is a selective systemic herbicide,

absorbed principally by the roots but also by the foliage, with translocation primarily

acropetally in the xylem.

Read the Directions for Use before using this product. Shake well before opening.

APPLICATION

Shake well before use. Fill the spray tank with water to three quarters of the required

volume, then pour Linurex Flowable into the tank with the agitation system running. Top up

to required volume with water while still agitating. If combining with Rhino®, add Linurex

Flowable last. Ensure good agitation to give continuous suspension of Linurex Flowable.

After use flush out system with clean water and wash nozzles and filters.

BOOM SPRAYS: Use approximately 80 L-110 L water per hectare (ha).

AIRCRAFT: Use 20 L-30 L water per hectare (ha). DO NOT exaggerate swath width.

COMPATIBILITY

Linurex Flowable may be mixed with Rhino where recommended. DO NOT add wetting

agent.

Resistance

Warning:

Linurex® Flowable is a member of the Urea-group of herbicides. This product has the

photosynthesis inhibitor mode of action. For weed resistance management Linurex

Flowable is a Group C Herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to

Linuron 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

Linurex Flowable or other Group C herbicides.

However, resistance should not be assumed without first viewing the method of application,

the coverage and the timing of application. Resistance to Linuron cannot be predicted and

may occur at any time. It is not due to a fault in the product and Adama Australia Pty. Ltd.

accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Linurex Flowable to

control resistant weeds.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

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

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

DO NOT plant susceptible crops (e.g. crucifers, lettuce) immediately following crops treated

with LINUREX FLOWABLE.

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. Avoid

overspraying, particularly on headlands or when turning.

DO NOT apply on light soils if heavy rain is likely within 24 hours of spraying as weed

control may be reduced or some crop damage may occur. This is of particular importance

with rates above 1 Litre and on soybeans.

Section 10 - Stability and Reactivity

Reactivity:

This product is unlikely to react or decompose under normal storage conditions. However, if you have

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

Conditions to Avoid:

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:

Only small quantities of decomposition products are expected from this products at

temperatures normally achieved in a fire. This will only occur after heating to dryness. 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 in reducing atmospheres. 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.

Polymerisation:

This product will not undergo polymerisation reactions.

Section 11 - Toxicological Information

Toxicity:

Acute toxicity: Linuron is of slight toxicity by ingestion, with reported oral LD

values of 1200 to 1500

mg/kg in rats, and 2250 mg/kg in rabbits. The reported dermal LD

in rabbits is greater than 5000 mg/kg. It has been

reported to be a skin sensitizer in guinea pigs, and an eye irritant in rabbits, but not a skin irritant in rabbits. The 4-

hour inhalation LC

is 6.15 mg/L, which indicates slight toxicity by this route.

Chronic toxicity: Skin sensitization was seen in guinea pigs repeatedly exposed. Alterations in red blood cells were

seen in rats given 2.75 mg/kg/day over 2 years. Anaemia was seen in dogs at doses above 6.25 mg/kg/day.

Reproductive effects: In a three-generation study, no reproductive effects were observed at doses of 12.5

mg/kg/day. These data suggest that reproductive effects are unlikely in humans at expected exposure levels.

Teratogenic effects: Pregnant rabbits fed high doses of Linuron during the sensitive period of pregnancy had normal

offspring at doses of up to 25 mg/kg/day, even though maternal weight gain was reduced. In rats, doses of 6.25

mg/kg/day did not produce teratogenic effects. These data suggest that Linuron is not likely to cause birth defects.

Mutagenic effects: Linuron caused mutations in one microbial assay. But in several other mutagenicity and

genotoxicity assays, including the Ames assay, E. coli culture assay, Chinese hamster ovary cell culture assay, and

whole animal studies, Linuron showed no mutagenic or genotoxic activity. Thus, it appears that Linuron is either

nonmutagenic or slightly mutagenic.

Carcinogenic effects: Several animal studies of mice, rats, and dogs have shown that it produces non-malignant

liver and testicular tumours. In these studies, doses of 72.5 mg/kg/day in rats caused testicular adenomas and 180

mg/kg/day in mice caused hepatocellular adenoma. These data are not sufficient to determine Linuron's

carcinogenicity to humans.

Organ toxicity: Rats and dogs fed Linuron for 2 years had detectable residues of Linuron in their blood, fat, kidney,

and spleen, but these did not seem to be associated with adverse effects.

Fate in humans and animals: In rats, Linuron breaks down completely after passing through the liver. It is thus

unlikely to bioaccumulate in mammalian systems.

Section 12 - Ecological Information

Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects to the aquatic environment. This product is

biodegradable. It will not accumulate in the soil or water or cause long term problems.

Effects on birds: Linuron is slightly toxic to birds; the reported 5- to 8-day dietary LC

values are greater than 5000

ppm in Japanese quail, 3000 ppm in mallard ducks, and 3500 ppm in pheasants.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Linuron is slightly toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrate species. The reported LC

for Linuron in trout and bluegill is 16 mg/L. The median threshold levels, i.e. levels at which adverse, sub lethal effects

were apparent in 50% of the test animals, are greater than 40 mg/L in crawfish and tadpoles exposed over a 48-hour

period.

Effects on other organisms: Linuron is nontoxic to bees.

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Linuron is moderately persistent in soils, with a field half-life of 30 to 150 days

in various soils and under various conditions. A representative field half-life is estimated to be approximately 60 days.

Microbial degradation is the major process by which Linuron is lost from soils; photodegradation and volatilization are

not important contributors to its breakdown. The metabolites of Linuron (3,4-dichloroaniline and carbon dioxide) are

less toxic than Linuron. Linuron is moderately bound to soil, and is soluble in water. Losses may occur through

transport of Linuron in runoff water and on suspended colloidal matter. Linuron has been found at very low

concentrations in well and groundwater samples in some US states.

Breakdown in water: Linuron is slightly to moderately soluble in water, and is not readily broken down in water.

Breakdown in vegetation: Linuron is more readily absorbed by roots from soil application, than by leaves from foliar

application. The rate at which it is absorbed, translocated, and subsequently broken down (or metabolized) differs

with various plant species.
