GROUP K HERBICIDE
A contact selective post-emergence herbicide forcontrol of weeds in young
beet crops, mangolds and in non-fruiting strawberries
This product acts via the foliage and is to be applied after emergence of the weeds. The effect of spraying can be seen
within 2 to 3 days of application. Susceptible weeds are completely killed in 7 to 10 days.
For best results the interval between treatment and rainfall or irrigation should not be less than 6 hours.
Application may followpre-emergence treatments if required or a second application is possible for later germinating weeds,
provided a minimum 7-day interval is observed between treatments.
Resistant Weeds Warning
Betanal Herbicide Spray is a member of the carbamate group of herbicides. Betanal is a herbicide with diverse sites of
action. For weed resistance management Betanal is a GroupKherbicide.
Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to Betanal, and other Group K 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 Betanal or other GroupKherbicides.
Since occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any
losses that may result from the failure of Betanal to control resistant weeds.
Export of Treated Produce
Growers should note that suitable MRLs or import tolerances may not be established in all markets for produce treated with
Betanal Herbicide Spray. If you are growing produce for export, please check with Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd for the latest
information on MRLs and import tolerances BEFORE using Betanal Herbicide Spray.
Half fill the spray tank with water and agitate or stir while adding the required quantity of this product. Tramat 500 SC (if
used) should be added at the same time. Top up with water and stir again. Use as soon as possible after mixing.
Ensure that the sprayers used to apply this product do not contain residues of other chemicals, since even traces of
hormone weedkillers may lead to severe damage of beet.
This product can be applied through any conventional ground spraying boom equipment fitted with fan type nozzles such as
"Spraying Systems" (8002 or 8003), "Lurmark" (015F80RG or02F80YE) and "Silvan" (SF002080 or SF003080). Adjust
pump pressure to 200 to 280 kPa for best results, especially for band spraying. Do NOT use high spray pressures.
After use, drain the spray system immediately and flush thoroughly with clean water to prevent later blockages.
Do not add herbicides other than Tramat 500 SC to this product. Slight foliage distortion on the crop may occur following
treatment with this product plus Tramat 500 SC. These effects are short-lived and do not affect crop yield.
PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVEAND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS
DO NOT apply under weather conditions or from spraying equipment which could be expected to cause spray to drift onto
nearby susceptible plants, adjacent crops, crop lands or pastures.
If using this product plus Tramat 500 SC, DO NOT rotate with any crops other than beets for 6 months after application.
Thorough tillage, including ploughing, should precede the planting of crops other than beets.
If crop is lost due to climatic or soil conditions following the application of this product plus Tramat 500 SC mixture, DO NOT
plant crops other than beets in treated soil during the same season.
PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT
STORAGE AND DISPOSAL
Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.
