DIRECTIONS FOR USE

RESTRAINTS:

DO NOT apply to weeds which may be stressed (not actively

growing) due to prolonged periods of extreme cold, moisture

stress (water-logged or drought affected), poor nutrition,

presence of disease, or previous herbicide treatment as

reduced levels of control may result.

DO NOT spray if rain is likely within 1 hour or if foliage is wet

from rain and dew. However, when tank mixed with glyphosate,

this time extends to 6 hours.

DO NOT burn off, cut or clear blackberry or other woody weeds

for 6 months after spraying.

of Garlon 600. Add the remaining water with the agitator

running. If required, then add crop oils or wetters (surfactants).

Maintain mechanical or by-pass agitation in the spray tank

during spraying. Only mix sufficient solution for immediate

daily use and avoid storing.

Basal Bark and Cut Stump Application: Quarter fill the spray

unit or mixing container with diesel and add the required amount

of Garlon 600. Add the remaining diesel and shake or agitate

thoroughly to mix the contents. Periodically shake or agitate

to stop product settling out. Only mix sufficient solution for

immediate daily use and avoid storing.

Garlon 1L Booklet.indd 28-29

6/8/09 2:45:29 PM

APPLICATION

1. WOODY WEED SITUATIONS

Weeds need to be actively growing for herbicides to have

optimum effect. Delay treatment until all regrowth has had

time to grow to one metre high in situations which have

been bulldozed, slashed, burnt, ploughed or areas having

a previous chemical treatment.

A. High Volume Spraying

Thorough coverage of foliage and stems to the point of

runoff is essential, however, avoid excess spraying which

is wasteful of chemical.

Hand Gun

Apply the recommended mix to give full coverage of leaves

and stems through a No. 6 to 8 tip at 700 to 1500 kPa.

A spray volume of 3,000 to 4,000 L per infested

hectare (30 to 40 L/100 m

) should be used on

the weed infestation.

Knapsack & 12 volt Sprayer Packs

Only recommended for the control of herbaceous weeds

such as capeweed, horehound and saffron thistle. DO NOT

use knapsacks or 12 volt sprayer packs to treat woody

weed infestations.

B. Aerial Application

Apply in 100 to 200 L water/ha. Use a calibrated aircraft

to apply in half overlap passes. Nozzle configurations

should produce a COARSE spray quality at the target

(ASABE S572).

The potential for damage from drift can be greatly reduced

by avoiding unsuitable spraying conditions and using

spray pressure and nozzles to minimise the production

of small droplets.

DO NOT spray when wind exceeds 15 km/hr air

temperature is above 30°C or low humidity

conditions (<35%).

C. Controlled Droplet Application (C.D.A.)

Results similar to high volume spraying can be obtained

using Micron Herb

or similar equipment. Select a nozzle

to give a flow rate of 2 mL/sec and sweeping action of

approximately 1 m/sec to ensure a droplet density of

20/cm

. Use a marking agent as recommended by the

equipment manufacturers, to check spray coverage.

Also, consult directions provided with C.D.A. unit.

D. Low Volume High Concentrate Application Techniques

Good control will be achieved, similar to high volume

application, where bush size enables good coverage

of the bush. Use a marking agent, as recommended

by the equipment manufacturers, to check spray coverage.

Gas powered gun: Apply 50 mL shots to obtain uniform

coverage of 4 to 5 m

of surface area of bush. This relates

to 20 droplets/cm

of leaf surface.

Sprinkler sprayer: This technique involves using a micro

sprinkler which is connected to a hollow fibre glass rod

attached to a pressure knapsack sprayer. Use at low

pressures (50 to 200 kPa) and apply with a slow sweeping

action over the top of the plants ensuring even coverage

on the leaves.

Garlon 1L Booklet.indd 30-31

6/8/09 2:45:29 PM

E. Basal Bark and Cut Stump Treatment

Mix Garlon 600 in diesel. The use of diesel as a herbicide

carrier may affect the rubber seals in some sprayers. To avoid

this, use sprayers which use Viton

seals and fittings. When

using Garlon 600 with diesel, nitrile/neoprene gloves should

be worn instead of rubber gloves.

Basal Bark Method

DO NOT apply to wet stems as this can repel the diesel

mixture. Apply only with hand-directed equipment such as a

pressure sprayer or a paint brush. Spray equipment should

be used at low pressures, up to 200 kPa, to avoid excessive

splashing or drift. Species with old, rough bark require more

thorough wetting than smooth barked species. Liberally spray

or paint the bark around the stem from ground level up to

30 cm high, wetting thoroughly to the point of runoff (unless

otherwise stated).

Cut Stump Method

Stems should be cut less than 15 cm above the ground.

Immediately apply Garlon 600/diesel mixture liberally to the

freshly cut stump by spray or painting the cut surface and

sides of the stem.

2. CROPPING/FALLOW SITUATIONS

A. Boom Application

Application of Garlon 600 in a minimum spray volume

of 50 L/ha is recommended. Use nozzles that produce

a MEDIUM to COARSE spray quality at the target

(ASABE S572).

Boom height must be set to ensure double overlap of

nozzle patterns.

B. Aerial Application

DO NOT allow Garlon 600 to physically drift onto

desirable plants.

Aircraft may be used to apply Garlon 600 in fallow

situations, when ground application equipment cannot

be used due to prolonged wet conditions.

A minimum spray volume of 35 L/ha should be used

with nozzles that produce a MEDIUM to COARSE spray

quality (ASABE S572) at the target are recommended.

DO NOT apply Garlon 600 by aircraft aircraft unless wind

speed is more than 3 km/hr and less than 15 km/hr as

measured at the application site and/or air temperature

above 30°C Avoid application when relative humidity falls

below 35%.

Human flagging is not authorised unless protected by

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

WATER-BASED CLEANING

Rinsing

After using Garlon 600, empty the spray unit completely and

drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the spray unit

using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any filters

in the tank, pump, lines, hoses and nozzles.

After cleaning the spray unit as above, quarter fill with clean

water and circulate through the pump, lines, hoses and nozzles.

Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.

Garlon 1L Booklet.indd 32-33

6/8/09 2:45:29 PM

Decontamination

Before spraying cotton and other sensitive crops, with equipment

that has been used to apply Garlon 600, see PROTECTION OF

CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS section.

Wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Then quarter

fill the tank and add a standard alkali based laundry detergent

at 500 g (or mL)/100 L water and circulate throughout the

system for at least 15 minutes. If using a concentrated laundry

detergent use 250 g (or mL)/100 L water. Do not use chlorine

based cleaners.

Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean

them separately. Finally flush the system with clean water and

allow to drain.

Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal

area or, if this is unavailable, onto unused land away from

desirable plants and water courses.

DIESEL-BASED CLEANING

Rinsing

After using Garlon 600, empty the spray unit completely and

drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the spray unit

using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any filters

in the tank, pump, lines, hoses and nozzles.

On completion of spraying, use a degreaser agent to remove

traces of diesel from the sprayer. Rinse tank and spray through

the nozzles with water to remove degreaser.

Decontamination

After the above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and add an

alkali detergent at 50 mL/10 L of water or the powder equivalent

at 50 g/10 L of water. Shake or operate spray to circulate the

washing solution throughout the sprayer and spray the solution

through the nozzle. Rinse well with clean water to remove

detergent.

To clean brushes and container, spray liberally with degreaser.

Hose off thoroughly with clean water and repeat using detergents

(see above).

DO NOT use this equipment for any other purpose.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

Garlon 600 Herbicide is a member of the pyridines group of

herbicides. The product has the disrupters of plant cell growth

mode of action. For weed resistance management, the product

is a Group I herbicide.

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product

and other disrupters of plant cell growth 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 this product or

other disrupters of plant cell growth herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect

prior to use, Dow AgroSciences accepts no liability for any

losses that may result from the failure of this product to

control resistant weeds.

Garlon 1L Booklet.indd 34-35

6/8/09 2:45:29 PM

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.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER

NON-TARGET PLANTS

Crops susceptible to Garlon 600 include, but are not limited to:

peas, lupins, lucerne, navy beans, soybeans and other legumes;

cotton, fruit, hops, ornamentals, shade trees and Pinus spp,

potatoes, safflower, sugarbeet, sunflower, tobacco, tomatoes,

vegetables and vines.

Garlon 600 is damaging to susceptible crops during both

growing and dormant periods. Grasses are normally unaffected

and establish quickly after treatment.

DO NOT allow physical spray drift onto waterways, native

vegetation and susceptible crops. When using Garlon 600 and

glyphosate by aerial application in fallow situations, observance

of a buffer zone of 150 metres to protect native tree species

is required.

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.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying

and stock should be kept away from these plants until they

have died down.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND

ENVIRONMENT

This product is highly toxic to fish and other aquatic organisms.

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the

chemical or used containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in closed original container in a cool, well-ventilated area.

DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

DO NOT store near food, feedstuffs, fertilisers or seed.

DO NOT re-use 1 litre container.

The method of disposal of the container depends on the

container type. Read the STORAGE and DISPOSAL instructions

on the label that is attached to the container.

SPILL AND LEAK MANAGEMENT

Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Wear a face

shield or goggles, overalls buttoned to neck and wrist, chemical

resistant gloves and footwear. Stop leak when safe to do so.

time between spraying and planting will be determined by the

product with the longest plant-back period.

Observe the following recropping periods for Garlon 600:

wheat, barley, sorghum, maize

7 days

chickpeas, soybeans, sunflowers

7 days

cotton

14 days

MIXING

Half fill the spray unit with water and add the required

amount of Garlon 600. Add the remaining water with the

agitator running. If required, then add crop oils or wetters

(surfactants). Maintain mechanical or by-pass agitation in

the spray tank during spraying. Only mix sufficient solution

for immediate daily use and avoid storing.

Basal Bark and Cut Stump Application: Quarter fill the spray

unit or mixing container with diesel and add the required

amount of Garlon 600. Add the remaining diesel and shake

or agitate thoroughly to mix the contents. Periodically shake

or agitate to stop product settling out. Only mix sufficient

solution for immediate daily use and avoid storing.

APPLICATION

1. WOODY WEED SITUATIONS

Weeds need to be actively growing for herbicides to have

optimum effect. Delay treatment until all regrowth has

had time to grow to one metre high in situations which

have been bulldozed, slashed, burnt, ploughed or areas

having a previous chemical treatment.

Garlon 5L Booklet.indd 20-21

6/8/09 2:45:15 PM

A. High Volume Spraying

Thorough coverage of foliage and stems to the point of

runoff is essential, however, avoid excess spraying which

is wasteful of chemical.

Hand Gun

Apply the recommended mix to give full coverage of

leaves and stems through a No. 6 to 8 tip at 700 to

1500 kPa.

A spray volume of 3,000 to 4,000 L per infested

hectare (30 to 40 L/100 m

) should be used on

the weed infestation.

Knapsack & 12 volt Sprayer Packs

Only recommended for the control of herbaceous

weeds such as capeweed, horehound and saffron thistle.

DO NOT use knapsacks or 12 volt sprayer packs to treat

woody weed infestations.

B. Aerial Application

Apply in 100 to 200 L water/ha. Use a calibrated aircraft

to apply in half overlap passes. Nozzle configurations

should produce a COARSE spray quality at the target

(ASABE S572).

The potential for damage from drift can be greatly

reduced by avoiding unsuitable spraying conditions

and using spray pressure and nozzles to minimise

the production of small droplets.

DO NOT spray when wind exceeds 15 km/hr,

air temperature is above 30°C or low humidity

conditions (<35%).

C. Controlled Droplet Application (C.D.A.)

Results similar to high volume spraying can be obtained

using Micron Herb

or similar equipment. Select a nozzle

to give a flow rate of 2 mL/sec and sweeping action of

approximately 1 m/sec to ensure a droplet density of

20/cm

. Use a marking agent as recommended by the

equipment manufacturers, to check spray coverage.

Also, consult directions provided with C.D.A. unit.

D. Low Volume High Concentrate Application Techniques

Good control will be achieved, similar to high volume

application, where bush size enables good coverage

of the bush. Use a marking agent, as recommended by

the equipment manufacturers, to check spray coverage.

Gas powered gun: Apply 50 mL shots to obtain

uniform coverage of 4 to 5 m

of surface area of bush.

This relates to 20 droplets/cm

of leaf surface.

Sprinkler sprayer: This technique involves using a micro

sprinkler which is connected to a hollow fibre glass rod

attached to a pressure knapsack sprayer. Use at low

pressures (50 to 200 kPa) and apply with a slow

sweeping action over the top of the plants ensuring

even coverage on the leaves.

E. Basal Bark and Cut Stump Treatment

Mix Garlon 600 in diesel. The use of diesel as a herbicide

carrier may affect the rubber seals in some sprayers.

To avoid this, use sprayers which use Viton

seals and

fittings. When using Garlon 600 with diesel, nitrile/

neoprene gloves should be worn instead of rubber gloves.

Basal Bark Method

DO NOT apply to wet stems as this can repel the diesel

mixture.

Apply only with hand-directed equipment such as a

pressure sprayer or a paint brush.

Spray equipment should be used at low pressures,

up to 200 kPa, to avoid excessive splashing or drift.

Species with old, rough bark require more thorough

wetting than smooth barked species.

Liberally spray or paint the bark around the stem from

ground level up to 30 cm high, wetting thoroughly to

the point of runoff (unless otherwise stated).

Garlon 5L Booklet.indd 22-23

6/8/09 2:45:15 PM

Cut Stump Method

Stems should be cut less than 15 cm above the ground.

Immediately apply Garlon 600/diesel mixture liberally

to the freshly cut stump by spray or painting the cut

surface and sides of the stem.

2. CROPPING/FALLOW SITUATIONS

A. Boom Application

Application of Garlon 600 in a minimum spray volume

of 50 L/ha is recommended. Use nozzles that produce

a MEDIUM to COARSE spray quality at the target

(ASABE S572). Boom height must be set to ensure

double overlap of nozzle patterns.

B. Aerial Application

DO NOT allow Garlon 600 to physically drift onto

desirable plants.

Aircraft may be used to apply Garlon 600 in fallow

situations, when ground application equipment cannot

be used due to prolonged wet conditions.

A minimum spray volume of 35 L/ha should be used

nozzles that produce a MEDIUM to COARSE spray quality

(ASABE S572) at the target are recommended.

DO NOT apply Garlon 600 by aircraft unless wind speed

is more than 3 km/hr and less than 15 km/hr as

measured at the application site and/or air temperature

is above 30°C. Avoid application when relative humidity

falls below 35%.

Human flagging is not authorised unless protected by

engineering controls such as vehicles with cabs.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

WATER-BASED CLEANING

Rinsing

After using Garlon 600, empty the spray unit completely and

drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the spray

unit using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any

filters in the tank, pump, lines, hoses and nozzles.

After cleaning the spray unit as above, quarter fill with clean

water and circulate through the pump, lines, hoses and

nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.

Decontamination

Before spraying cotton and other sensitive crops, with

equipment that has been used to apply Garlon 600, see

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET

PLANTS section.

Wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Then quarter

fill the tank and add a standard alkali based laundry detergent

at 500 g (or mL)/100 L water and circulate throughout the

system for at least 15 minutes. If using a concentrated laundry

detergent use 250 g (or mL)/100 L water. Do not use chlorine

based cleaners.

Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean

them separately. Finally flush the system with clean water and

allow to drain.

Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated

disposal area or, if this is unavailable, onto unused land

away from desirable plants and water courses.

DIESEL-BASED CLEANING

Rinsing

After using Garlon 600, empty the spray unit completely and

drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the spray

unit using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any

filters in the tank, pump, lines, hoses and nozzles.

On completion of spraying, use a degreaser agent to remove

traces of diesel from the sprayer. Rinse tank and spray through

the nozzles with water to remove degreaser.

Decontamination

After the above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and add

an alkali detergent at 50 mL/10 L of water or the powder

equivalent at 50 g/10 L of water. Shake or operate spray to

circulate the washing solution throughout the sprayer and

Garlon 5L Booklet.indd 24-25

6/8/09 2:45:15 PM

spray the solution through the nozzle. Rinse well with clean

water to remove detergent.

To clean brushes and container, spray liberally with degreaser.

Hose off thoroughly with clean water and repeat using

detergents (see above).

DO NOT use this equipment for any other purpose.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

Garlon 600 Herbicide is a member of the pyridines group of

herbicides. The product has the disrupters of plant cell growth

mode of action. For weed resistance management, the product

is a Group I herbicide.

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the

product and other disrupters of plant cell growth 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 this product or

other disrupters of plant cell growth herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect

prior to use, Dow AgroSciences accepts no liability for any

losses that may result from the failure of this product 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.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER

NON-TARGET PLANTS

Crops susceptible to Garlon 600 include, but are not limited

to: peas, lupins, lucerne, navy beans, soybeans and other

legumes; cotton, fruit, hops, ornamentals, shade trees and

Pinus spp, potatoes, safflower, sugarbeet, sunflower, tobacco,

tomatoes, vegetables and vines.

Garlon 600 is damaging to susceptible crops during both

growing and dormant periods. Grasses are normally unaffected

and establish quickly after treatment.

DO NOT allow physical spray drift onto waterways, native

vegetation and susceptible crops. When using Garlon 600

and glyphosate by aerial application in fallow situations,

observance of a buffer zone of 150 metres to protect native

tree species is required.

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.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying

and stock should be kept away from these plants until they

have died down.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS

7 days

cotton

14 days

MIXING

Half fill the spray unit with water and add the required amount of Garlon 600. Add the remaining water

with the agitator running. If required, then add crop oils or wetters (surfactants). Maintain mechanical

or by-pass agitation in the spray tank during spraying. Only mix sufficient solution for immediate daily

use and avoid storing.

Basal Bark and Cut Stump Application: Quarter fill the spray unit or mixing container with diesel and add the

required amount of Garlon 600. Add the remaining diesel and shake or agitate thoroughly to mix the contents.

Periodically shake or agitate to stop product settling out. Only mix sufficient solution for immediate daily use

and avoid storing.

APPLICATION

1. WOODY WEED SITUATIONS

Weeds need to be actively growing for herbicides to have optimum effect. Delay treatment until all

regrowth has had time to grow to one metre high in situations which have been bulldozed, slashed,

burnt, ploughed or areas having a previous chemical treatment.

A. High Volume Spraying

Thorough coverage of foliage and stems to the point of runoff is essential, however, avoid excess

spraying which is wasteful of chemical.

Garlon 10L Booklet.indd 16-17

9/9/09 2:05:29 PM

Hand Gun

Apply the recommended mix to give full coverage of leaves and stems through a No. 6 to 8 tip at 700 to

1500 kPa.

A spray volume of 3,000 to 4,000 L per infested hectare (30 to 40 L/100 m

) should be used on the

weed infestation.

Knapsack & 12 volt Sprayer Packs

Only recommended for the control of herbaceous weeds such as capeweed, horehound and saffron

thistle. DO NOT use knapsacks or 12 volt sprayer packs to treat woody weed infestations.

B. Aerial Application

Apply in 100 to 200 L water/ha. Use a calibrated aircraft to apply in half overlap passes.

Nozzle configurations should produce a COARSE spray quality at the target (ASABE S572).

The potential for damage from drift can be greatly reduced by avoiding unsuitable spraying conditions

and using spray pressure and nozzles to minimise the production of small droplets.

DO NOT spray when wind exceeds 15 km/hr air temperature is above 30°C or low humidity

conditions (<35%).

C. Controlled Droplet Application (C.D.A.)

Results similar to high volume spraying can be obtained using Micron Herb

or similar equipment. Select

a nozzle to give a flow rate of 2 mL/sec and sweeping action of approximately 1 m/sec to ensure a droplet

density of 20/cm

. Use a marking agent as recommended by the equipment manufacturers, to check spray

coverage. Also, consult directions provided with C.D.A. unit.

D. Low Volume High Concentrate Application Techniques

Good control will be achieved, similar to high volume application, where bush size enables good

coverage of the bush. Use a marking agent, as recommended by the equipment manufacturers,

to check spray coverage.

Gas powered gun: Apply 50 mL shots to obtain uniform coverage of 4 to 5 m

of surface area of bush.

This relates to 20 droplets/cm

of leaf surface.

Sprinkler sprayer: This technique involves using a micro sprinkler which is connected to a hollow fibre

glass rod attached to a pressure knapsack sprayer. Use at low pressures (50 to 200 kPa) and apply with

a slow sweeping action over the top of the plants ensuring even coverage on the leaves.

E. Basal Bark and Cut Stump Treatment

Mix Garlon 600 in diesel. The use of diesel as a herbicide carrier may affect the rubber seals in some

sprayers. To avoid this, use sprayers which use Viton

seals and fittings. When using Garlon 600 with

diesel, nitrile/neoprene gloves should be worn instead of rubber gloves.

Basal Bark Method

DO NOT apply to wet stems as this can repel the diesel mixture. Apply only with hand-directed equipment

such as a pressure sprayer or a paint brush. Spray equipment should be used at low pressures, up to

200 kPa, to avoid excessive splashing or drift. Species with old, rough bark require more thorough wetting

than smooth barked species. Liberally spray or paint the bark around the stem from ground level up to

30 cm high, wetting thoroughly to the point of runoff (unless otherwise stated).

Cut Stump Method

Stems should be cut less than 15 cm above the ground.Immediately apply Garlon 600/diesel mixture

liberally to the freshly cut stump by spray or painting the cut surface and sides of the stem.

2. CROPPING/FALLOW SITUATIONS

A. Boom Application

Application of Garlon 600 in a minimum spray volume of 50 L/ha is recommended. Use nozzles that

produce a MEDIUM to COARSE spray quality at the target (ASABE S572).

Boom height must be set to ensure double overlap of nozzle patterns.

B. Aerial Application

DO NOT allow Garlon 600 to physically drift onto desirable plants.

Aircraft may be used to apply Garlon 600 in fallow situations, when ground application equipment cannot

be used due to prolonged wet conditions.

A minimum spray volume of 35 L/ha should be used with nozzles that produce a MEDIUM to COARSE

spray quality (ASABE S572) at the target are recommended.

Garlon 10L Booklet.indd 18-19

9/9/09 2:05:29 PM

DO NOT apply Garlon 600 by aircraft aircraft unless wind speed is more than 3 km/hr and less than

15 km/hr as measured at the application site and/or air temperature above 30°C Avoid application

when relative humidity falls below 35%.

Human flagging is not authorised unless protected by engineering controls such as vehicles with cabs.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

WATER-BASED CLEANING

Rinsing

After using Garlon 600, empty the spray unit completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside

the spray unit using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any filters in the tank, pump, lines, hoses

and nozzles.

After cleaning the spray unit as above, quarter fill with clean water and circulate through the pump, lines, hoses

and nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.

Decontamination

Before spraying cotton and other sensitive crops, with equipment that has been used to apply Garlon 600, see

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS section.

Wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Then quarter fill the tank and add a standard alkali based laundry

detergent at 500 g (or mL)/100 L water and circulate throughout the system for at least 15 minutes. If using a

concentrated laundry detergent use 250 g (or mL)/100 L water. Do not use chlorine based cleaners.

Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean them separately. Finally flush the system with

clean water and allow to drain.

Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area or, if this is unavailable, onto unused

land away from desirable plants and water courses.

DIESEL-BASED CLEANING

Rinsing

After using Garlon 600, empty the spray unit completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside

the spray unit using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any filters in the tank, pump, lines, hoses

and nozzles.

On completion of spraying, use a degreaser agent to remove traces of diesel from the sprayer. Rinse tank and

spray through the nozzles with water to remove degreaser.

Decontamination

After the above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and add an alkali detergent at 50 mL/10 L of water or the

powder equivalent at 50 g/10 L of water. Shake or operate spray to circulate the washing solution throughout

the sprayer and spray the solution through the nozzle. Rinse well with clean water to remove detergent.

To clean brushes and container, spray liberally with degreaser. Hose off thoroughly with clean water and repeat

using detergents (see above).

DO NOT use this equipment for any other purpose.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

Garlon 600 Herbicide is a member of the pyridines group of herbicides. The product has the disrupters of plant

cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance management, the product is a Group I herbicide.

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other disrupters of plant cell growth

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 this product or other disrupters of plant cell growth herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Dow AgroSciences accepts no liability

for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant weeds.

Garlon 10L Booklet.indd 20-21

9/9/09 2:05:29 PM

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.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

and other legumes; cotton, fruit, hops, ornamentals, shade trees and Pinus spp, potatoes, safflower, sugarbeet,

sunflower, tobacco, tomatoes, vegetables and vines.

Garlon 600 is damaging to susceptible crops during both growing and dormant periods. Grasses are normally

unaffected and establish quickly after treatment.

DO NOT allow physical spray drift onto waterways, native vegetation and susceptible crops. When using Garlon

600 and glyphosate by aerial application in fallow situations, observance of a buffer zone of 150 metres to

protect native tree species is required.

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.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying and stock should be kept away from these plants

until they have died down.

RESTRAINTS:

DO NOT apply to weeds which may be stressed (not actively growing) due to prolonged periods of extreme

cold, moisture stress (water-logged or drought affected), poor nutrition, presence of disease, or previous

herbicide treatment as reduced levels of control may result.

DO NOT spray if rain is likely within 1 hour or if foliage is wet from rain and dew. However, when tank

mixed with glyphosate, this time extends to 6 hours.

DO NOT burn off, cut or clear blackberry or other woody weeds for 6 months after spraying.

When mixing with glyphosate in fallow, refer to the glyphosate label for use rate and adjuvants

recommended. DO NOT use Uptake™ Spraying Oil or D-C-Trate

Crop Oil.

SORGHUM:

Garlon 600 is compatible with:

Starane™ 200 or Starane™ Advanced Herbicide

atrazine (500 or 600 g/L flowable product only)

PVC gloves are not recommended for Garlon 600 Herbicide, therefore, when tank mixing with

products that need to be handled with PVC gloves, workers should wear nitrile/neoprene gloves.

MINIMUM RECROPPING PERIODS

Before using Garlon 600 in tank mixes with other herbicides, check the plant-back information on all

product labels. The time between spraying and planting will be determined by the product with the longest

plant-back period.

Observe the following recropping periods for Garlon 600:

wheat, barley, sorghum, maize

7 days

chickpeas, soybeans, sunflowers

7 days

cotton

14 days

MIXING

Half fill the spray unit with water and add the required amount of Garlon 600. Add the remaining water

with the agitator running. If required, then add crop oils or wetters (surfactants). Maintain mechanical or

by-pass agitation in the spray tank during spraying. Only mix sufficient solution for immediate daily use

and avoid storing.

Basal Bark and Cut Stump Application: Quarter fill the spray unit or mixing container with diesel and

add the required amount of Garlon 600. Add the remaining diesel and shake or agitate thoroughly to mix

the contents. Periodically shake or agitate to stop product settling out. Only mix sufficient solution for

immediate daily use and avoid storing.

APPLICATION

1. WOODY WEED SITUATIONS

Weeds need to be actively growing for herbicides to have optimum effect. Delay treatment until all

regrowth has had time to grow to one metre high in situations which have been bulldozed, slashed,

burnt, ploughed or areas having a previous chemical treatment.

Garlon Multi BLKT.indd 10-11

6/8/09 2:45:43 PM

A. High Volume Spraying

Thorough coverage of foliage and stems to the point of runoff is essential, however, avoid excess

spraying which is wasteful of chemical.

Hand Gun

Apply the recommended mix to give full coverage of leaves and stems through a No. 6 to 8 tip at

700 to 1500 kPa.

A spray volume of 3,000 to 4,000 L per infested hectare (30 to 40 L/100 m

) should be used on

the weed infestation.

Knapsack & 12 volt Sprayer Packs

Only recommended for the control of herbaceous weeds such as capeweed, horehound and saffron

thistle. DO NOT use knapsacks or 12 volt sprayer packs to treat woody weed infestations.

B. Aerial Application

Apply in 100 to 200 L water/ha. Use a calibrated aircraft to apply in half overlap passes.

Nozzle configurations should produce a COARSE spray quality at the target (ASABE S572).

The potential for damage from drift can be greatly reduced by avoiding unsuitable spraying

conditions and using spray pressure and nozzles to minimise the production of small droplets.

DO NOT spray when wind exceeds 15 km/hr, air temperature is above 30 °C or low humidity

conditions (<35%).

C. Controlled Droplet Application (C.D.A.)

Results similar to high volume spraying can be obtained using Micron Herb

or similar equipment.

Select a nozzle to give a flow rate of 2 mL/sec and sweeping action of approximately 1 m/sec

to ensure a droplet density of 20/cm

. Use a marking agent as recommended by the equipment

manufacturers, to check spray coverage. Also, consult directions provided with C.D.A. unit.

D. Low Volume High Concentrate Application Techniques

Good control will be achieved, similar to high volume application, where bush size enables good

coverage of the bush. Use a marking agent, as recommended by the equipment manufacturers,

to check spray coverage.

Gas powered gun: Apply 50 mL shots to obtain uniform coverage of 4 to 5 m

of surface area of

bush. This relates to 20 droplets/cm

of leaf surface.

Sprinkler sprayer: This technique involves using a micro sprinkler which is connected to a hollow

fibre glass rod attached to a pressure knapsack sprayer. Use at low pressures (50 to 200 kPa) and

apply with a slow sweeping action over the top of the plants ensuring even coverage on the leaves.

E. Basal Bark and Cut Stump Treatment

Mix Garlon 600 in diesel. The use of diesel as a herbicide carrier may affect the rubber seals

in some sprayers. To avoid this, use sprayers which use Viton

seals and fittings. When using

Garlon 600 with diesel, nitrile/neoprene gloves should be worn instead of rubber gloves.

Basal Bark Method

DO NOT apply to wet stems as this can repel the diesel mixture. Apply only with hand-directed

equipment such as a pressure sprayer or a paint brush. Spray equipment should be used at low

pressures, up to 200 kPa, to avoid excessive splashing or drift. Species with old, rough bark

require more thorough wetting than smooth barked species. Liberally spray or paint the bark

around the stem from ground level up to 30 cm high, wetting thoroughly to the point of runoff

(unless otherwise stated).

Cut Stump Method

Stems should be cut less than 15 cm above the ground. Immediately apply Garlon 600/diesel

mixture liberally to the freshly cut stump by spray or painting the cut surface and sides of

the stem.

2. CROPPING/FALLOW SITUATIONS

A. Boom Application

Application of Garlon 600 in a minimum spray volume of 50 L/ha is recommended. Use nozzles that

produce a MEDIUM to COARSE spray quality at the target (ASABE S572).

Boom height must be set to ensure double overlap of nozzle patterns.

B. Aerial Application

DO NOT allow Garlon 600 to physically drift onto desirable plants.

Aircraft may be used to apply Garlon 600 in fallow situations, when ground application equipment

cannot be used due to prolonged wet conditions.

A minimum spray volume of 35 L/ha should be used with nozzles that produce a MEDIUM to

COARSE spray quality (ASABE S572) at the target are recommended.

DO NOT apply Garlon 600 by aircraft unless wind speed is more than 3 km/hr and less than

15 km/hr as measured at the application site and/or air temperature is above 30°C. Avoid

application when relative humidity falls below 35%.

Human flagging is not authorised unless protected by engineering controls such as vehicles

with cabs.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

WATER-BASED CLEANING

Rinsing

After using Garlon 600, empty the spray unit completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash

inside the spray unit using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any filters in the tank, pump,

lines, hoses and nozzles.

After cleaning the spray unit as above, quarter fill with clean water and circulate through the pump, lines,

hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.

Decontamination

Before spraying cotton and other sensitive crops, with equipment that has been used to apply Garlon 600,

see PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS section.

Wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Then quarter fill the tank and add a standard alkali

based laundry detergent at 500 g (or mL)/100 L water and circulate throughout the system for at least

15 minutes. If using a concentrated laundry detergent use 250 g (or mL)/100 L water. Do not use chlorine

based cleaners.

Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean them separately. Finally flush the system

with clean water and allow to drain.

Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area or, if this is unavailable, onto

unused land away from desirable plants and water courses.

DIESEL-BASED CLEANING

Rinsing

After using Garlon 600, empty the spray unit completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash

inside the spray unit using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any filters in the tank, pump,

lines, hoses and nozzles.

On completion of spraying, use a degreaser agent to remove traces of diesel from the sprayer. Rinse tank

and spray through the nozzles with water to remove degreaser.

Decontamination

After the above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and add an alkali detergent at 50 mL/10 L of

water or the powder equivalent at 50 g/10 L of water. Shake or operate spray to circulate the washing

solution throughout the sprayer and spray the solution through the nozzle. Rinse well with clean water

to remove detergent.

To clean brushes and container, spray liberally with degreaser. Hose off thoroughly with clean water and

repeat using detergents (see above).

DO NOT use this equipment for any other purpose.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

Garlon 600 Herbicide is a member of the pyridines group of herbicides. The product has the disrupters

of plant cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance management, the product is a Group I herbicide.

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other disrupters of plant cell growth

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 this product or other disrupters of plant cell growth herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Dow AgroSciences accepts

no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product 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.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER

NON-TARGET PLANTS

Crops susceptible to Garlon 600 include, but are not limited to: peas, lupins, lucerne, navy beans,

soybeans and other legumes; cotton, fruit, hops, ornamentals, shade trees and Pinus spp, potatoes,

safflower, sugarbeet, sunflower, tobacco, tomatoes, vegetables and vines.

Garlon 600 is damaging to susceptible crops during both growing and dormant periods. Grasses are

normally unaffected and establish quickly after treatment.

DO NOT allow physical spray drift onto waterways, native vegetation and susceptible crops. When using

Garlon 600 and glyphosate by aerial application in fallow situations, observance of a buffer zone of

150 metres to protect native tree species is required.

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.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying and stock should be kept away from these

plants until they have died down.
