Other Information

Always read the label and any attached leaflet before use.

Do not use on or in situations where damage to susceptible crops or plants such

as cotton, tobacco, tomatoes, flowers, vines, fruit trees or other susceptible

crop plants may result from direct application or drift.

Sprayed weeds may become more palatable to stock and a higher intake of some

weeds may result in stock poisoning and death from causes such as nitrate

poisoning. Care should be taken especially where capeweed, Paterson's curse

and variegated thistles predominate in the pasture.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

National Exposure

Standards

No exposure standards have been set for this product or the active ingredients.

Engineering Controls

Handle in well ventilated areas, generally natural ventilation is adequate.

Personal Protective

Equipment

When opening the container, preparing spray and using the prepared spray wear

cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and a washable hat, elbow-length

rubber gloves and face shield or goggles.

Hygiene Measures

After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face

thoroughly with soap and water.

After each day's use, wash contaminated clothing and safety equipment.

Requirements

Concerning Special

Training

NSW regulations require that people who use pesticides in their job or business

must have training in the application of the materials. By 1st September, 2005

all users must have received such training.

10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY

Chemical Stability

Stable under normal conditions.

Incompatible

Materials

Reaction of the concentrate or spray mix with acids will precipitate solid MCPA

and largely de-activate the product and cause blockages in spray equipment.

The addition of a strong alkali such as caustic soda will cause release of

dimethylamine vapour.

Dimethylamine is moderately toxic, LD50 (oral, rat) is 700 mg/kg and a TLV of 10

ppm (TWA) has been set.

Hazardous

Polymerization

Hazardous polymerisation is not possible.
