GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

This product is for early post-emergence weed control in field peas, soybeans and peanuts. Weeds will either

die or remain stunted and will not compete with the crop. For weeds marked with an asterisk in the above

table, the level of control will vary significantly depending on factors such as climatic conditions following

application, crop vigour, weed seed depth, etc.

The non-ionic surfactant, BS1000 or equivalent, must be added when used in all three crops, while Boost

liquid ammonium sulphate should also be added when used in peanuts and soybeans.

Good crop competition is essential for effective weed control.

MIXING

RAPTOR Herbicide is an aqueous concentrate and mixes readily with water. Part fill the spray tank with

water, then with the agitator running, add the required amount of product, then fill the tank with water. When

tank mixing this product with other recommended compatible products, first add the other product to the tank

and mix thoroughly before adding this product.

APPLICATION

For ground application only: Apply with boom equipment in not less than 50 L/ha water using flat fan

nozzles. Avoid overlap and do not overspray headlands.

Do NOT apply by aircraft.

RAPTOR Herbicide should be applied a minimum of two hours before rainfall or irrigation.

Do NOT apply RAPTOR more than once per growing season.

EQUIPMENT CLEAN-UP

Thoroughly flush all spray equipment with water following the use of RAPTOR and before use with other

products.

COMPATIBILITY

The product is compatible with dimethoate, FASTAC* Duo, phosmet, omethoate and endosulfan.

Do NOT tank mix with selective post-emergence grass herbicides. Do NOT apply these herbicides following

use of RAPTOR until grasses have resumed active growth.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

GROUP

B

HERBICIDE

RAPTOR Herbicide is a member of the Imidazolinone group of herbicides. The product has the ALS mode

of action. For weed resistance management, the product is a Group B herbicide.

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other ALS herbicides may exist through

normal genetic variability in any weed population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the

population if these herbicides are used repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by this

product or other ALS herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Cyanamid Agriculture Pty Limited

accepts no liability for any losses that may result from failure of this product to control resistant weeds.

FOLLOW CROPS

Under conditions, such as very dry seasons, which do not favour breakdown of this product, carry-over soil

residues can affect susceptible follow crops. As environmental and agronomic factors make it impossible to

eliminate all risks associated with this product, rotational crop injury is always possible. The following

minimum re-cropping intervals (months after application) should be observed.

during the next winter season.

* Do NOT apply RAPTOR later than the end of August.

Do NOT use RAPTOR in areas where rainfall from the time of spraying to sowing of cereals is expected

to be below 200mm.

Furthermore:

Do NOT use on soils of pH 5.5 (CaCl

) or less in areas where rainfall from spraying to sowing of cereals

is expected to be below 300mm.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

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.

Do NOT spray within 50 m of wetlands or waterways.

Crop safety:

This product may cause shortening of plant internodes and may in some circumstances lead to

transient crop yellowing but plants will soon recover . This effect is more pronounced under poor growth

conditions.

Do not use this product on field pea varieties other than Alma, Bonzer, Dun, Dundale, Glenroy, Laura and

Wirrega.

Replanting:

If replanting is necessary in a field previously treated with RAPTOR, the field may be replanted

to field peas (above listed varieties only), soybeans or peanuts. Do NOT apply a second treatment of

RAPTOR.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Toxic to aquatic flora. Do NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used

containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Keep out of reach of children.

Store in the closed original container in a dry, cool, well-ventilated area out of 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 bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no

landfill is available, bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for

this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots.
