GENERALINSTRUCTIONS

Macspred Kromac ® Industrial Herbicide is a soil residual herbicide that mainlyenters weeds

through theirroots. Forbest results in all areas applyto moist weedfreesoil. Well

established weeds should be removed before application. For best results sufficient moisture,

either byrainfall or irrigation, is required within 3 - 4 daysof treatment to carrythe product

into thesoil. With irrigation wet theentirearea.

Resistant Weeds Warning

Macspred Kromac ®

Industrial Herbicide contains members of the uracil and urea groups of

herbicides. Macspred Kromac ®

Industrial Herbicide has the inhibitor of photosynthesis at

photosystem IImode of action. For weed resistance management Macspred Kromac ®

Industrial Herbicide is a Group C Herbicide.

Some naturally-occurringweed biotypes resistant to Macspred Kromac ® Herbicide and other

inhibitors of photosynthesis at photosystem IIherbicides mayexist through normal genetic

variabilityin anyweed population. The resistant individuals can eventuallydominate the

weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be

controlled byMacspred Kromac ®

Industrial Herbicide or other inhibitors of photosynthesis

at photosystem IIherbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistantweeds isdifficulttodetectprior touse, Macspred PtyLtd

accepts no liabilityfor anylosses that mayresult from the failure of Macspred Kromac ®

Industrial Herbicide to control resistant weeds.

Strategies to minimisetherisk ofherbicideresistanceareavailable.Consult yourlocal

Department of Agriculture or PrimaryIndustries or local Macspred representative.

EQUIPMENT AND MIXING

Mixthe required amount of Kromac ®

Industrial Herbicide into a minimum of 20 Lof water

per kgof product.

Large areas: Use a fixed boom power sprayer or handgun. To prevent nozzle blockage,

strainer and nozzle screens should be 50 mesh or coarser.

Agitate continuouslyin the spraytank to keep material suspended.

(a) Fixed boom power sprayers - Use 1000-2000 L/ha water for industrial weed control

(b) Hand gun - Use 1000-2000 L/ha and 600-800 kPa pressure.

SmallAreas

Extinguish fire with foam and water spray. If area isheavily exposed to fire and if conditions permit let fire

burn itself out since water may increase the contamination hazard. Fine dust dispersed in air (particularly in

confined spaces) may ignite if exposed to high temperature ignition source. Fire fighters to wear full

protective clothing such andself contained breathing apparatus

SECTION 6 – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Spills and Disposal

Pick up bulk material by sweeping or other effective meansand place into drums. Do not flush with water. If

spill area is on ground near trees or other valuable plants, remove top 15cm of soil after initial cleanup.

Should product contact soil, apply activated charcoal. Activated charcoal will absorb but not completely

neutralise the product. Cleanup crew should wear rubbergloves, protective clothing and eye shield.

Disposal

Disposal

(1)After intended use:

Shake empty into application equipment. Destroy emptyinner plastic bags by puncturing or shredding them.

Dispose of empty bags at a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers below 500

mm in a licensed/ approved disposal site. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.

Outer cardboard carton may be recycled.

(2) After spill or accident

Pick up bulk material by sweeping or other effective meansand place into drums. Do not flush with water. If

spill area is on ground near trees or other valuable plants, remove top 50mm of soil after initial cleanup.

Should product contact soil, apply activated charcoal. Activated charcoal will absorb but not completely

neutralise the product. Cleanup crew should wear rubber gloves and protective clothing. Dispose of sealed

containers at approved local waste disposal site.

Bromacil:

In a 24-month study in rats, no clinical, haematological,urinary, or biochemical evidence of toxicity was

observed in the test groups. At the highest level, slight body weight retardation was seen in females and

thyroid effects were seen in males and females. The no-effect level was 250 ppm. No oncogenic effects

were seen at any level. In an 18-month feeding study inmice, at the highest rate, a statistically significant

increase in total liver tumours was seen in male mice only. Neither carcinomas nor adenomas considered

separately were statistically significant nor were usualtumour types noted. Statistically significant increases

in naturally occurring, non-neoplastic testicular lesionswere seen at all male treatment levels, and in liver

lesions at all male and only the highest female treatment groups. In a 24-month dog feeding study, no

nutritional, clinical haematological, urinary, biochemical, or pathological evidence of toxicity was observed in

any test group. Dietary administration of bromacil did not affect normal reproduction or lactation in a 3-

generation, 6 litter reproduction study. Bromacil was found to be neither embryotoxic nor teratogenic. In

studies not conducted at Haskell Laboratory, bromacil has been reported to be non-mutagenic in 5 of 6

point/gene mutation studies, 6 of 6 primary DNA damagestudies and 3 of 4 tests for chromosomal effects.

Diuron:

This compound is a skin irritant, is an eye irritant butnot a skin sensitiser in animals. Toxic effects described

in animals form short exposures by inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact includes: blood effects, spleen

effects, thyroid effects, methaemoglobinaemia and non-specific effects such as weight loss and irritation.

Tests in some animals indicate that the compound may beembryotoxic activity. Animal testing indicates that

this compound does not have mutagenic, or reproductive effects.
