For best results use high volume rates
Spray to wet all foliage evenly. Apply when grasses are growing
vigorously and before seed stems develop.
Atlapon 2,2-DPA herbicide is slow in acting and it may take 6-8
weeks before full effect is seen.
Atlapon 2,2-DPA in the soil may inhibit germination of sensitive
plants for 30 days or more, depending on rate applied, soil type,
temperature and amount of rainfall.
most rapidly in warm moist soils.
MIXING Atlapon 2,2-DPA dissolves readily in water and may be
added directly to the spray tank or washed through a strainer.
WETTING AGENTS The addition of a Non-Ionic wetting agent
increases the efficiency of the spray.
RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING Agspray Atlapon 2,2-DPA Systemic
Herbicide is a member of the Alkanoic acids group of herbicides.
Atlapon has the inhibitors of fat synthesis mode of action. For weed
resistance management, the product is a Group J herbicide. Some
naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Atlapon and other
inhibitors of fat synthesis 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
Agspray Atlapon or other inhibitors of fat synthesis herbicides.
Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior
to use, Agspray Chemical Company Pty Ltd accepts no liability for
any losses that may result from the failure of Agspray Atlapon to
control resistant weeds.
