Trade Advice:

Export of Treated Produce

Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances do not exist in all markets for edible

produce treated with Sencor 480 SC Selective Herbicide. If you are growing edible produce

for export, please check with Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd for the latest information on MRLs

and import tolerances before using Sencor 480 SC Selective Herbicide.

General Instructions:

Please refer to Page 11.

Resistance Warning:

Resistant Weeds Warning

Sencor is a member of the triazinone group of herbicides and has the inhibitor of

photosynthesis at photosystem II mode of action. For weed resistance management the

product is a Group C herbicide. Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the

product and other Group C 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 the

product or other Group C herbicides.

Annual ryegrass biotypes resistant to diclofop-methyl and other ‘grass specific’ herbicides

are often also resistant to Sencor 480 SC. Before using Sencor 480 SC on a population

resistant to ‘grass specific’ herbicides, have a resistance test conducted to ensure that it is

still susceptible to Sencor 480 SC.

Since the 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 the

product to control resistant weeds.

Large numbers of healthy surviving weeds can be an indication that resistance is

developing. Efforts should be made to prevent seed set of the survivors.

DO NOT make more than one application of a Group C herbicide to a crop in the same

season, either pre-sowing incorporated by sowing or post crop and weed emergence.

If the user suspects that a Group C resistant weed is present, Sencor 480 SC or other

Group C herbicides should not be used.

Strategies to minimise the risk of herbicide resistance are available. Consult your farm

chemical supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture or Primary Industries, or local

Bayer CropScience representative.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND NON-TARGET PLANTS

Prevent drift of spray to sensitive plants. Keep from contact with fertilisers, insecticides,

fungicides and seeds. Thoroughly clean all traces of Sencor from application equipment

immediately after use. To minimise risk to follow-on sensitive crops such as beetroot,

brassicas, capsicums, cotton, cucurbits, lettuce, onions and sunflowers, it is advisable

to work land thoroughly - allow at least 6 months (12 months for cucurbits) between

application of Sencor 480 SC and sowing seed of these sensitive crops. A longer period

may be required following long dry periods between crops. If rates of Sencor 480 SC higher

than 1.5 L/ha were used, allow at least 12 months before planting these crops. The use of

other herbicides and/or crop oils on broadleaf crops treated with Sencor 480 SC may cause

severe damage.

Page 2 of 12

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 WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Dangerous to aquatic organisms. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with

the chemical or used containers.

Storage and

Disposal:

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Do not store for

prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank.

DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean

containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush, or

puncture and deliver empty packaging to an approved waste management facility. If an

approved waste management facility is not available, bury the empty packaging 500 mm

below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose, clear of

waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant local, state or

territory government regulations. DO NOT burn empty containers or product. DO NOT re-

use empty containers for any other purpose.

after spraying before weeds emerge is necessary to get useful weed control.

The longer the time interval between spraying and rain or irrigation the less the

effectiveness of the herbicide. Sencor can be applied to a band centred on

crop rows for in-row weed control.

Untreated soil between treated bands thrown onto treated areas during

subsequent cultivation will reduce weed control along rows. Sencor can be

applied after pre-sowing Trifluralin treatment. Avoid leaving a depression over

the row during planting to enhance crop tolerance.

Furrow irrigated crops: Apply after furrowing out and within two weeks before

sowing and incorporate with Lillistone cultivators to finely tilled soil free of

emerged weeds. Where grass weeds are expected, add Trifluralin at the rate

recommended by the manufacturer for the soil type. For post-emergence weed

control: Apply when weeds are in the young seedling stage and actively

growing, provided crop plants have at least 2-trifoliate leaves. DO NOT spray if

rain is likely to fall within several hours. Transitory damage may occur to the

pigeon pea crop but yields will not be significantly affected.

Page 10 of 12

Sencor 480 SC Selective Herbicide

GENERA

L INSTRUCTIONS

Sencor is effective against a range of broadleaf weeds and some grasses. Sencor is absorbed by

roots, shoots and leaves of weeds. It can therefore be applied before or after weeds emerge

depending on the tolerance of the crop being treated. For recently introduced varieties DO NOT use

Sencor unless it is ascertained that the variety to be treated shows sufficient tolerance to the

treatment under local climatic conditions.

Crop Safety

The use of other herbicides and/or crop oils on broadleaf crops treated with Sencor may cause severe

damage.

Before using Sencor 480 SC on newly released crop varieties, confirm the variety tolerance with the

State Department of Agriculture, Agronomist or Bayer CropScience representative.

Compatibility

Sencor 480 SC is compatible with the insecticides Le-mat

on peas, Dominex

Duo and Talstar

EC. Sencor 480 SC is compatible with the herbicides Trifluralin, Glean

, Ally

, Brodal

Options,

Buctril

MA, Jaguar

, Simazine, Stomp

, Tigrex

and Yield

. DO NOT mix concentrates together but

add each to the spray tank separately. As formulations of other manufacturers' products are beyond

the control of Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial

quantities. As changes in climatic conditions can alter the sensitivity of plants to mixtures of sprays,

Bayer CropScience cannot be responsible for the behaviour of such mixtures.

Mixing

Prior to pouring, shake container vigorously for at least 30 seconds, then add the required quantity of

Sencor to the required amount of water and stir. Rinse empty container with water and pour into

spray tank. Keep agitators in motion.

Application

General

Best results are obtained if treatment is made to moist soil and moisture is supplied by rainfall or

sprinkler irrigation (6-12 mm) within 2 weeks after application. If heavy rains occur soon after

application, injury to the crop may result.

Pre-emergence

Soil should preferably be moist to the surface and must not be cloddy or have residues of a previous

crop on the surface. It is better to delay pre-emergence spraying of loose or fluffy soils until there is a

good soil settling rain. Rain or irrigation soon after spraying is required to activate Sencor.

Post-emergence

Post-emergence spraying will control young actively growing emerged weeds through leaf uptake.

Subsequent

pre-emergence

control

later

germinating

weeds

requires

rain

irrigation

after

spraying. Crops may show slight chlorosis or necrosis after spraying. Two sunny days before

spraying enhances crop tolerance. Heavy rain (80-100 mm) after spraying on deep sandy or friable

well structured soils may leach Sencor beyond the root zone thus reducing residual effect.

Ground Spraying

Apply Sencor through a carefully calibrated boom spray set at 200 to 300 kPa pressure (except for

tomatoes in Qld only) fitted with fan nozzles. Use a convenient quantity of water (50-100 L/ha). Cone

nozzles and other means of application are not satisfactory and should not be used. When spraying

avoid over-lapping and shut off spray booms while starting, turning slowly and when stopped.

Neglecting these procedures will cause higher rates of application resulting in crop damage. Delay

post-emergence spraying if rain is expected within a few hours.

Aerial Spraying

Wind: Spray only in crosswinds, otherwise uneven coverage may result. DO NOT spray onto

inversions or in dead calm conditions. DO NOT spray when winds are light and variable in direction

unless smoke indicators or the spray cloud show that the spray is going down into the crop.

Spray drift may damage adjoining crops. Make sure that the wind is blowing away from crops for

which Sencor is not recommended.

Sencor 480 SC Selective Herbicide

Flying:

Fly with the wheels 2 to 3 metres above the crop as "wheels on crop" spraying causes

uneven distribution. Track spacing must be uniform and suited to the type of aircraft and crosswind

speed.

Droplet Size: For grasses and vertical weeds, use fine droplets. For horizontal weeds and drift

limitation, use droplets over 200 microns and increase volume.

Water Volume: Use 20 to 30 L water/ha.
