CRITICAL COMMENTS

Treat only actively growing weeds not under stress from low moisture, frost, cold, disease or

waterlogging. If heavy grazing has occurred allow regrowth to 6-8cm before spraying and use the

higher rate.

RATE SELECTIONIncrease tohigher rateslate in the season or when treating under cold/overcast

conditions.

FULL DISTURBANCEwith a cultivation or sowing with a tyned implement may start one day after

treatment (7 days if Dock, Phalaris, Skeleton weed, Soursob, or Sorrel are present) and should occur

within 21 days after treatment. When treating light infestations or seedling annual grasses (pre-

tillering) and annual broadleaved weeds (less than 8cm dia/height), cultivation or sowing may start 6

hours after treatment and should occur within 21 days.

CROP ESTABLISHMENTSowing should not proceed until conditions allow the formation of a

satisfactory seedbed. SeeCrop Establishmentfor directions.

ANNUAL RYEGRASS, SILVERGRASS AND PERENNIAL GRASSESAddition of Wetter TX 200mL/100L

spray solution, may improve control. When treating dense infestations of Silvergrass, nozzles designed

to give MEDIUM to COARSE spray quality (ASAE S572) and a spray volume of 70 L/ha or more is

recommended to improve spray coverage. Good coverage of Silvergrass is critical for control.

TANK MIXTURESFor improved control of clover add KAMBA ® 500. Read and follow all label directions,

restraints, plant-back periods, withholding periods, regional use restrictions and safety directions for

the tank mix products. SeeTank Mixturesfor directions.

PERENNIAL WEEDSFor Perennial phalaris, Soursob, Skeleton weed and Sorrel, Roundup CT will

provide knockdown, seasonal suppression and reduction in treated plant numbers.

TASMANIAUse 1.2 L/ha on annual weeds. Increase to 2.4 L/ha where perennial weeds are being

treated. To control White clover and improve control of Sorrel and Dock, add 400mL/ha KAMBA ® 500.

CRITICAL COMMENTS

Treat only actively growing weeds not under stress from low moisture, frost, cold, disease or

waterlogging. If heavy grazing of mature plants has occurred, allow regrowth to 6-8cm before

spraying and use the higher rate.

RATE SELECTIONUse thelower rateon young weeds; increase to thehigher ratewhere grasses

reach full tillering or where broadleaf weeds reach stem elongation/budding. Increase to higher rates

in Spring or when treating under cold/overcast conditions.

AERIAL APPLICATIONUse the higher rates. SeeAERIAL EQUIPMENT.

ANNUAL RYEGRASS, SILVERGRASS AND PERENNIAL GRASSESAdd Wetter TX, 200mL/100L

spray solution. When treating dense infestations of Silvergrass, nozzles designed to give MEDIUM

to COARSE spray quality (ASAE S572) and a spray volume of 70 L/ha or more is recommended to

improve spray coverage. Good coverage of Silvergrass is critical for control.

TANK MIXTURESFor improved control of dock, sorrel, sub clover add KAMBA ® 500. Read and follow

all label directions, restraints, plant-back periods, withholding periods, regional use restrictions and

safety directions for the tank mix products. SeeTank Mixturesfor directions. Addition of Liase at, 2

L/100L, may improve control when treating under adverse environmental conditions.

PASTURE OR CROP ESTABLISHMENTDO NOT sow into excessive trash. Trash may be removed by

grazing after treatment. Grazing may commence one day after treatment of annual weeds (small) and

7 days for perennial weeds. Delay grazing for three days where annual weeds are large. Sowing may

proceed when excessive trash is removed, but not sooner than one day after treatment of annual

weeds and 7 days for perennial weeds. See alsoCrop Establishment.

AERIAL (OR SURFACE) SEEDINGDelay seeding until trash is completely removed by grazing and/or

plant decay. When establishing pasture, ensure application of fertilizer and insecticides and follow-up

management is undertaken as required.

TASMANIAUse 1.2L/ha on annual weeds. Increase to 2.4 L/ha where perennial weeds are being

treated. To control White clover and improve control of Sorrel and Dock, add 400mL/ha KAMBA ® 500.

CRITICAL COMMENTS

TIMINGTreat from late October to late November. Apply before seedheads have emerged. Use the

higher rate where growth is excessive and renovation is intended the following Autumn.

FOLLOW-UP MANAGEMENTGraze hard after spraying.

TIMINGApply to actively growing plants in late Spring when they have some seed-head development,

but before Summer moisture stress. Remove stock to ensure there is full leaf growth.

FOLLOW-UP MANAGEMENTFull disturbance with a tyned implement should follow 10-21 days after

spraying. Then follow with a Summer crop, and/or re-seeded pasture or crop the following Autumn.

RATE SELECTIONFor suppression, apply the low rate. Where complete control is required apply up to

the high rate.

BAND SPRAYINGBand spraying may be done immediately after the sowing operation. Mount the

nozzles behind the coulter/tyne/press wheel assembly of the band seeder. Adjust to spray 0.5 to 1.0m

strips. Ensure minimal disturbance of the pasture. Excessive dust created in the seedling operation

may reduce herbicide activity. Pasture seed must be drilled at the appropriate depth and

covered by soil.

LUCAENA (QLD ONLY)Apply 2 L/ha through a single taper fan nozzle LFI-80 mounted at the rear of

the single row planter providing a 1 m swath. Planting rows to be 4 m apart.

TIMINGGraze heavily, then remove at least 14 days before spraying to allow fresh regrowth. Apply to

actively growing plants after the autumn break but before heavy frosts (March – May).

APPLICATIONIncreasing to the higher rate may give more effective reductions. If aerial spraying, see

AERIAL EQUIPMENT.

FOLLOW UP MANAGEMENTSowing may start from 14 days after spraying. It is essential that correct

follow-up pasture establishment and management occurs after each treatment. Spot treatment will

CRITICAL COMMENTS

Treat only actively growing weeds not under stress from low moisture, frost, cold, disease or

waterlogging. If heavy grazing has occurred allow regrowth to 6-8cm before spraying. Note that under

Summer (hot) conditions, dense infestations of Barnyard grass and Liverseed grass may require

follow-up treatment for complete control. In Winter (cold) conditions, symptoms on Deadnettle may

be slow to develop.

RATE SELECTIONUse the lower rate on young weeds; increase to the higher rate where grasses reach

full tillering or where broadleaf weeds reach stem elongation/budding. At more advanced stages of

growth certain broadleaf weeds require a higher rate range or the addition of 2, 4-D. Use Surpass 475

for summer fallow weed control. Use Surpass 475 or Estercide Xtra 680 prior to sowing a winter crop.

CROP ESTABLISHMENTSowing should not proceed until conditions allow the formation of a

satisfactory seed bed. SeeCrop Establishmentfor directions.

TANK MIXTURESRead and follow all label directions, restraints, plant-back periods, withholding

periods, regional use restrictions and safety directions for the tank mix products. DO NOT tank mix

with atrazine when spraying Barnyard grass or Liverseed grass.

AERIAL APPLICATIONFor instructions on aerial application, under hot conditions, seeAERIAL

EQUIPMENT.DO NOT apply by aircraft when temperature is above 30 o C.

Use a higher rate on larger weeds. Control of Pigweed over a wide range of growth stages can be

obtained with the addition of Associate ® /Ally*. Observe re-cropping intervals.

CRITICAL COMMENTS

Previously grazed plants may be difficult to control without allowing full recovery.

Use the higher rate for dense infestations. Apply sequential treatments during Summer and Autumn,

with autumn being most effective. Repeat applications will be required for full control. For improved

control use in conjunction with cultivation. The use of LI 700 500mL/100L may improve control.

Use the higher rate on plants approaching seedhead stage. Apply to plants with a minimum of 30cm

new growth. Sequential treatments will be required for long term control.

Make first application to actively growing plants when at least 20% have reached the head stage

(normally about Feb). After allowing maximum re-emergence to occur (normally in 6-8 weeks), it is

essential to make a second application.

NOTEFollowup treatments should be made as part of a Nutgrass control program.

DO NOT apply if crop is under stress from low moisture, frost, cold or waterlogging.

RATE SELECTIONUse the lower rate for control of crop and late tillers and suppression of ratoon

regrowth. Use the higher rate for improved suppression of ratoon regrowth.

TIMINGApply when grain moisture is less than 25%. Application can be made when moderate

browning has occurred.

CAUTIONTreatment may increase potential for CROP LODGING, particularly if prior moisture stress

has occurred. Harvest should commence at least 7 days after application provided sufficient dry down

has occurred to avoid possible lodging. Speed of dry down is dependant on physiological maturity, soil

moisture and climatic conditions.

CAUTIONSorghum may be naturally toxic to stock.

APPLY UNDER GOOD GROWING CONDITIONS ONLY. DO NOT apply if plants are under stress from

low moisture, frost, cold or waterlogging.

SLASHED STUBBLE AND SPRING REGROWTHapply when fresh regrowth is at least 20cm high.

STANDING STUBBLEApply only if sufficient green leaf area is present. If grazing has occurred allow

regrowth to 20cm before treatment.

RATE SELECTIONUse the lower rate for knockdown and regrowth suppression where cultivation is to

follow. Increase to the higher rate for improved regrowth control.

NOTEVariable results occur where the crop has been subject to stress or growing conditions are

marginal.CAUTIONSorghum may be naturally toxic to stock.

APPLY UNDER GOOD GROWING CONDITIONS ONLY to actively growing ratoons 60-120 cm tall.

DO NOT apply if plants are under stress from low moisture or waterlogging. Use the lower rate for

CRITICAL COMMENTS

Roundup CT is less effective on drought-stressed plants. In drought conditions a pre-watering prior

to spraying is recommended. In grazed situations, if heavy grazing has occurred allow regrowth to

6-8cm before spraying.

ANNUAL RYEGRASSAdd Wetter TX at 200mL/100L of spray solutions and where dominant use the

higher rate.

SOWINGDirect drilling may take place 1-14 days after spraying. Roundup CT does not provide

residual weed control. Permanent water and approved selective herbicides should be used to provide

continuing control of weeds.

Use the lower rate on light infestations of small weeds, where the crop canopy allows adequate spray

coverage of the weeds. Increase to the higher rate when the crop canopy may limit spray coverage, when

treating dense infestations, or when treating larger weeds. Apply alone or in tank mixtures with Dropp ® or

Harvade ® . Apply when at least 60% of bolls are open and immature bolls cannot be easily cut with a sharp

knife. Where a leafy canopy limits spray coverage, reduced weed control can be expected. For best results

under these conditions, delay application until canopy re-opens following initial conditioning treatment.

Where control of Nutgrass or Noogoora burr is required treatments should be applied prior to the onset

of frosts. When tank mixed with defoliants, a slightly higher proportion of cotton leaf may be retained,

particularly where the higher rate is used. Read and follow all label direction for the tank mix products.

Apply Roundup CT to weeds growing between crop rows using a shielded sprayer. Do not apply in

crops less than 20cm high. DO NOT allow spray or spray drift to contact any part of the cotton plant

as severe injury or destruction may result.

Apply as a directed or shielded spray or using wiper equipment. DO NOT apply as a spray near trees

or vines less than 3 years old unless they are effectively shielded from spray and spray drift. DO NOT

allow wiper surface to contact any part of the tree, vine or plant.

Citrus fruit, Nuts, Olives, Pome fruit & VineyardsDO NOT allow spray or spraydrift to contact green

bark or stems, canes, laterals, suckers, fresh wounds, foliage or fruit.

HopsApply in Winter, prior to crop emerging from dormancy.

TeaApply a maximum of 3.2L/ha by shielded boom or directed off-centre nozzle or 0.4L/100L by

directed hand-

gun or knapsack to avoid application to the crop.

All other cropsDO NOT allow spray or spray drift to contact any part of the plant including the trunk.

CAUTIONWhere split bark on Kiwifruit and green stems on Pawpaw occur, extreme care is required.

Annual weeds may be sprayed anytime they are actively growing. Use the lower rate on weeds up to

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Roundup CT is a non-volatile, non selective,

water soluble liquid herbicide with non-selective

herbicidal activity. It is absorbed by plant foliage

and green stems and moves through the plant

from the point of contact to and into the root

system. Effects may not be apparent for 3-7 days

(annual weeds) or 2 - 3 weeks (perennial weeds)

or longer under cool, cloudy conditions.

Roundup CT will control emerged weeds only,

and provides no residual weed control. Apply

treatments to weeds which have at least one true

leaf (broadleaf weeds) or two leaves (grasses) to

provide an adequate surface area for herbicide

uptake.

Roundup CT may be used prior to sowing any

crop (edible or non edible) but not prior to

transplanting tomato seedlings.

A withholding period for grazing stock is not

required. However, it is recommended that

grazing of treated plants be delayed for one day

after treatment of annual weeds, or 7 days of

perennial weeds are present, to ensure absorption

of Roundup CT. Certain plants (eg. Soursob,

variegated thistle) may be naturally toxic to stock.

Where known toxic plants are present, do not

allow stock to graze until complete browning of

treated plants has occurred.

Weeds should be actively growing at the time

of treatment. DO NOT treat weeds under poor

drought, water logging, disease, insect damage

or following frosts) as reduced weed control

mayresult. Reduced results may also occur when

treating weeds heavily covered with dust or silt.

Prior herbicide application may also induce stress

in weeds, that reduces control.

Rainfall occurring up to 6 hours after application

may reduce effectiveness. Rainfastness or general

efficacy may be reduced if weeds are not actively

growing, are under stress or conditions of low

light intensity/darkness. Heavy rainfall within 2

hours after application may wash the chemical

off the foliage and a repeat treatment may be

required. Delay treatment of plants wet with dew

or rain, if water droplets run off when plants are

disturbed. Avoid contact with foliage, green stems

or fruit of crops, desirable plants and trees, since

severe injury or destruction may result.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

Roundup CT is a member of the Glycines group of

herbicides. Roundup CT has the inhibition of EPSP

synthase mode of action. For weed resistance

management Roundup CT is a Group M herbicide.

Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant

to Roundup CT and other Group M 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

AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

WITHHOLDING PERIOD

PRE-HARVEST SORGHUM: DO NOT HARVEST FOR 7 DAYS.

OTHER USES: NOT REQUIRED WHEN USED AS DIRECTED. 31394_46360_backlabelleaflet_MPL_V02

herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds

is difficult to detect prior to use, Nufarm accepts

no liability for any losses that may result from the

failure of Roundup CT to control resistant weeds.

CROP ESTABLISHMENT

Roundup CT is recommended for control of

emerged weeds prior to crop establishment.

Suitable cultivation and/or sowing operations

are required to provide seed bed conditions

satisfactory for crop germination and

development. Spraying early to control young

weeds will favour preparation of suitable seed

beds. On friable soils and where there is only

light cover of young weeds, sowing may proceed

satisfactorily from one day after spraying.

In situations of heavy weed growth sowing should

be delayed until weed decay and soil conditions

allow formation of a satisfactory seed bed.

Incorporation of green or decaying vegetation and

roots into the seedbed by cultivation or sowing

may cause retarded crop emergence, particularly

in cold and/or wet conditions. Vegetation may

be reduced by grazing and weed decay may

be assisted by cultivation to leave trash on the

surface. In marginal seedbed conditions take care

to achieve correct seeding depth, and avoid use of

pre-emergence herbicides where label directions

advise of risk of retarded crop emergence.

MIXING

Roundup CT mixes readily with water.Note

Reduced results may occur if water containing

soil is used, eg. Water from ponds and unlined

ditches, or if hard water containing calcium,

magnesium and bicarbonate ions is used.

DO NOT mix, store or apply this product or spray

solutions of this product in galvanised steel or

highly flammable gas mixture may be formed.

Use stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper,

fibreglass, plastic or plastic lined containers or

spray tanks. Ensure the sprayer is free of any

residue of previous spray materials. Use spray

solutions promptly and certainly within 5 days

since a gradual loss of activity will occur. Fill the

spray tank with one half the required amount

of clean water and add the proper amount of

Roundup CT. Mix well before adding the remaining

portion of water. Add surfactant near the end of the

filling process to minimize foaming. Placing the

filling hose below the surface of the spray solution

will prevent excessive foaming. Removing hose

from tank immediately after the filling will prevent

back siphoning into water source.

DO NOT use mechanical agitators as these

may cause excessive foaming. Spray tanks,

pumps, lines and nozzles should be thoroughly

rinsed with clean water following application to

prevent corrosion.

TANK MIXTURES/COMPATIBILITY

Roundup CT may be tank-mixed with the

following herbicides, insecticides and additives.

Read and follow all label directions, restraints,

plant-back periods, withholding periods, regional

use restrictions and safety directions for the tank

mix products.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL

TANK MIXTURES

1.Fill the spray tank 1/3 to ½ full with clean water

and start agitation.

2.Add Liase where required.

3.Add recommended herbicide/insecticide/

additive to the spray tank and mix thoroughly.

4.Add Roundup CT and the remaining water.

31394_46360_backlabelleaflet_MPL_V02

treating Annual Ryegrass, Silvergrass and

Perennial grasses. Wetter TX is NOT a general

purpose surfactant and should be used only

where recommended.

DO NOT use spray oils, adjuvants or surfactants

other than those recommended on this label.

APPLICATION

Roundup CT is a non-selective translocated

herbicide. Direct spray contact, or even slight

drift, may cause severe injury or destruction

of any growing crop or other desirable plants

including trees. Clean all equipment after use by

thoroughly washing with water.

BOOM EQUIPMENT

Application of Roundup CT in spray volumes

of 25–100 L/ha is recommended for broadacre

uses and 200L/ha or less for treeline and vineline

spraying in orchards and vineyards. Glyphosate

works better when it is present at a higher

concentration in the spray solution provided

sufficient coverage of the target is achieved. Nozzles

and pressure settings should be selected to deliver a

COARSE to VERY COARSE spray quality (as defined

by ASAE S572 Standard) at the target. The use

of nozzles and/or pressure settings that produce

VERY FINE or FINE spray quality should be avoided

as these are prone to loss or drift. Environmental

conditions, including delta T, wind speed and

direction, and the size and density of the target

weeds, should be taken into consideration when

selecting nozzles. To minimize off-target drift, apply

with the lowest boom height to achieve double

overlap of the spray pattern at the top of the target.

SHIELDED EQUIPMENT

For shielded applications a spray volume of 80 L/

sprayed ha is recommended using nozzle types

defined by ASAE S572 Standard) spray quality at

the target. Crop damage may result if spray drift

occurs through incorrect nozzle and/or pressure

selection inadequate shielding and/or wind

strength, high evaporation rates or excessive

ground speed.

AERIAL EQUIPMENT

Aerial equipment may be used to apply Roundup

CT only in pasture or fallow situations prior to

establishment of field crops, fodder crops, or

new pasture, and for preharvest application

to sorghum crops. DO NOT use in intensive

horticultural cropping areas. Use recommended

rates of Roundup CT specified in this label up

to a maximum rate of 3.1L/ha. DO NOT apply

treatments by aircraft in situations where drift

onto sensitive crops and pastures is likely

to occur. Apply treatments using boom or

Micronair equipment using a spray volume not

less than 20 L/ha and using settings to produce

a minimum COARSE spray quality (as defined by

ASAE S572 Standard) at the target. In multiple

product tank mixes a minimum water volume of

50 L/ha is recommended and local advice should

be sought. Correct mixing order is important.

Swath width should be set to take into account

aircraft type, wind conditions, target height and

density. Swath width will need to be reduced to

avoid striping under light wind conditions and/or

application to tall, dense targets eg. preharvest

application, treatments in heavy crop stubble. DO

NOT apply Roundup by aircraft in temperatures

above 30 o C and increase spray output to at

least 30 L/ha if temperatures rise above 25 o C.

Avoid application when relative humidity falls

below 35%. Thoroughly wash aircraft, especially

landing gear, after each day of spraying to

Distributed by:

Nufarm Australia Limited ACN 004 377 780

103-105 Pipe Road Laverton North VIC 3026

APPLICATION ON HILLY TERRAIN

Spraying height may vary. Increase water volume

to 30–80 L/ha and use nozzles that produce a

COARSE to VERY COARSE spray quality (as

defined by ASAE S572 Standard) at the target.

APPLICATION UNDER HOT CONDITIONS

High temperatures and/or low relative humidity

cause excessive evaporation of spray droplets,

which may reduce results. When temperature

reaches 25°C, increase water volume to at least

30 L/ha, and use nozzles that produce a COARSE

to VERY COARSE spray quality at the target (as

defined by ASAE S572 Standard). DO NOT apply

Roundup CT by aircraft when temperature is

above 30°C.

PROTECTION OF CROP, NATIVE AND OTHER

NON-TARGET PLANTS

Avoid contact with foliage, green stems or fruit

of crops, desirable plants and trees, since severe

injury or destruction may result.

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from

spraying equipment, that may cause spray to drift

onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEA

AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate dams, rivers or streams

with the product or used container.

DO NOT apply to weeds growing in or over water.

DO NOT spray across open bodies of water.
