Good coverage is essential for optimum weed control.

Pre-planting:

Cereals can be sown immediately after application. Sow cereal

seed at least 5 cm deep.

Canola can be sown immediately after application of the 2.8L/ha

rate. Delay seeding until 5 days after application of the 5.6L/ha

rate.

Sub. clover, medic and lucerne - delay seeding until 5 days after

application.

Winter pulses: Faba beans, Field peas and lupins can be sown

a minimum of 2 days after application at an application rate of

2.8L/ha. Delay seeding until 5 days after application of 5.6L/ha.

Use seeding equipment that results in minimal soil disturbance

but which removes treated soil from above the seeding row. A

seeder fitted with knifepoints and press wheels is preferred. Disc

seeders are not preferred because treated soil throw may be

inadequate.

Bleaching of isolated crop leaves may be seen after emergence

but this is usually scattered and does not affect overall crop

vigour. Light sandy soils and/or heavy rain falling soon after

application may increase the likelihood of bleaching happening.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

GROUP

HERBICIDE

Amitrole T Herbicide is a member of he triazole group of herbicides. Amitrole T has the inhibitors of carotenoid biosynthesis mode of action. For

weed resistance management, Amitrole T is a Group Q herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Amitrole T and other Group

Q 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 Amitrole T and other Group Q herbicides. Since

the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Nufarm Australia Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from

the failure of this product to control resistant weeds.

APPLICATION INFORMATION

Use recommended rates of Amitrole T in 100-500L of clean water per hectare using booms or directed nozzles. Use higher water rates for denser

weed swards. When using knapsack equipment apply 900-1100L per hectare (1U10m 2).

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

To improve the efficiency of Amitrole T, it is recommended that LI 700 or Activator® be added to the spray mixture at 0.1% (100mU100L). LI 700 or

Activator are not required when tank mixing with Nufarm Credit® + Bonus®, Weedmaster® Duo or Roundup Biactive®.

COMPATIBILITY

Amitrole T is physically compatible with the following products. Weedmaster® Duo, Credit® + Bonus®, Roundup Biactive®, Roundup® DST,

Roundup® AttackTM, Amicide® 625, Amicide® Advance 700, Nu-trazine 900DF, Nu-trazine 600, Simazine 900DF, Simazine Flowable, Diuron

900DF, Diuron Flowable, Nuquat® 250, Propon®, Striker® and sulfometuron-methyl.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

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

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

Drift Warning

This product is a non selective herbicide and may damage crops, pastures and some ornamentals. However it is safer to use near plants

susceptible to phenoxy type herbicides. Spray drift may occur under adverse meteorological conditions or from certain spray equipment. DO NOT

allow spray to drift onto sensitive areas including, but not limited to, susceptible plants/crops, cropping land, pasture, natural streams, rivers,

wetlands or waterways and human dwellings.

Equipment Maintenance and Usage

DO NOT use the spray machine for any other purpose unless thoroughly cleaned by several rinsings of all parts with clean water.
