Resistance Warning:

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

GROUP I HERBICIDE

SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 Herbicide is a member of the pyridine group of herbicides.

The product has a disrupters of plant cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance

management, the product is a Group I Herbicide.

Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other Group I

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 this product or other

Group I herbicides.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Sabakem Pty Ltd

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

resistant weeds.

Strategies to minimize the risk of herbicide resistance are available. Contact your farm

chemical supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture, or Sabakem Pty Ltd

representative.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

Susceptible crops include but are not limited to clovers, cotton, fruit, hops, lupins,

ornamentals, peas, pine tree, potatoes, navy beans, safflower, shade trees, soybeans,

sunflower, tobacco, tomatoes, vegetables and vines.

SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 can be damaging to susceptible crops during both growing and

dormant periods.

Grasses are normally unaffected by SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 and establish quickly after

treatmen.Transitory damage can occur on some species particularly those that spread

by stolons such as cough grass (Cynodon dactylon), Kikuyu grass and carpet grass

(Axonopus sp.)

DO NOT allow spray to drift onto susceptible crops, shade trees and Pinus spp.

DO NOT use under weather conditions or from spraying equipment that could cause spray

to drift onto nearby susceptible plants.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

DO NOT graze or cut treated crops for stock food except as specified under withholding

periods.

Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying.

DO NOT allow stock to re-enter paddocks containing treated poisonous plants, until the

plants have died down.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

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

Alongside waterways, treat only noxious weeds and poisonous plants.

Storage and

Disposal:

Keep out of reach of children. Store in closed, original container in a cool, well ventilated

area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple-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 packaging for appropriate disposal 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.

Safety Directions:

Avoid contact with eyes and skin. When opening the container, preparing the spray and

using the prepared spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and a

washable hat, elbow-length PVC gloves and a face shield or goggles. Wash hands after

use. After each day’s use wash gloves, face shield or goggles and contaminated clothing.

First Aid Instructions:

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 13 11

26. If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. If in eyes wash out immediately with water.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

MIXING

SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 may be mixed with water or diesel.

Mix only sufficient chemical for each day’s use and avoid storing.

Mixing in Water: Half fill the spray tank with water and add the required quantity of SABAKEM

Fluroxypyr 400 and complete filling. Agitate continuously to ensure thorough mixing before and during

application.

Mixing in Diesel: Half fill the tank with diesel and add the required quantity of SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400.

Add the remainder of the diesel and agitate or shake to mix contents.

Tank mixtures: Wettable powder or dry flowable formulations (e.g. water dispersible granules) should

be added to the spray tank first, followed by suspension concentrates (flowables), water soluble salts

and then emulsifiable concentrate formulations (SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400). Add spraying oils and

surfactants (wetters) last.

OILS AND SURFACTANTS

Oils

Use an appropriate crop oil/surfactant adjuvant at the rate of 500 mL/100 L of spray mix. When using

less than 100 L/ha spray volume, ensure a minimum of 250 mL/ha of this adjuvant is used, unless 1

L/100 L or 1 L/ha is specified.

Surfactants (wetters)

Use a 1000g/L non-ionic surfactant such at 100 mL/100 L of spray mix where required.

COMPATIBILITY

SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 is compatible with the herbicides listed. Follow any regional restrictions, and

all directions and restrictions on the label, of any chemical mixed with SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400.

ATRAZINE

AVOID USING HARD WATER WHEREVER POSSIBLE.

Where hard water cannot be avoided, the addition of CALGON water conditioning agent to the spray

tank, at 100 g/100 L water, before adding any herbicide may improve compatibility.

AGITATION IS VERY IMPORTANT WHEN MIXING SABAKEM FLUROXYPYR AND ATRAZINE.

SABAKEM Fluroxypyr plus atrazine tank mixes must be agitated vigorously and continuously during

mixing and application. After mixing DO NOT allow to stand without agitation. Ensure that the time

from mixing to the end of application is not more than 2 hours. If settling out occurs re-suspension

is difficult, even with vigorous agitation.

Agitation using only the pump’s by-pass is usually inadequate, particularly with larger tanks (more than

2000 L). Additional mechanical agitation will be necessary in large tanks, computer sprayers and

mixing tanks.

When additional surfactant is required, add a 100% concentrate non-ionic surfactant at 100 mL/100 L

of spray mix. DO NOT use a spraying oil when tank mixing SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 and atrazine.

EC tank-mixes at 500 mL/100 L of spray mix with a minimum of 250 mL/ha.

DO NOT mix SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 with Clodinafop 240 EC if the grass weeds are not actively

growing. Always use the maximum label rate of. Clodinafop 240 EC for the appropriate grass growth

stage.

DO NOT use SABAKEM Fluroxypyr at more than 0.375 L/ha in tank mixes with Clodinafop 240 EC.

GLYPHOSATE 450g/L

When mixing SABAKEM Fluroxypyr with Glyphosate 450g/L to control both grass and broadleaf weeds,

refer to the Glyphosate 450g/L label for use rates and adjuvants recommended for the grasses. DO

NOT use Glyphosate 450g/L at less than 1.2 L/ha in tank mixes with SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400, when

barnyard grass, buttongrass, crowsfoot grass, native millet and liverseed grass are the target species.

APPLICATION METHODS and WATER RATES

BROADCAST APPLICATION IN CROPPING, PASTURE AND FALLOW SITUATIONS

A.

Ground application (Boom)

Apply SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 with an accurately calibrated boom sprayer, in at least 50 L/ha water

(100-400 L/ha for sugar cane).

Flat fan nozzles are recommended using pressures in the range 200 to 300 kPa.

Set the boom at a height to ensure a double overlap of the nozzle patterns.

B.

Ground directed application (Dropper nozzles)

To minimise crop effects, dropper nozzles should be used in sorghum when the crop is beyond the 8

leaf growth stage and in maize and sweet corn when the crop is beyond the 6 leaf growth stage.

Adjust the nozzles to direct the spray into the base of the crop and away from the leaves and the

growing point. See manufacturer’s directions for setting up and calibration of dropper nozzles.

C.

Aerial application

Apply in a minimum volume of at least 35 L/ha water (60 L/ha in sugarcane).

Use equipment calibrated to produce droplets with an average diameter (Volume Mean Diameter;

VMD) of 250 – 350 micron.

DO NOT apply when the temperature is above 30

C, when there is no wind or when the wind is

blowing toward susceptible crops.

DO NOT use human flaggers unless they are protected by engineering controls such as enclosed

cabs.

WOODY WEED SITUATIONS

Weeds must be actively growing to attain optimal effect. Delay the treatment of regrowth following

bulldozing, slashing, burning, ploughing or a previous chemical treatment until it has at least 1 metre

of new, vigorous, growth.

A. High Volume Application

Hand Gun

Apply the recommended mix to obtain full coverage of leaves and stems using a number 6 – 8 tip at

700 to 1500 kPa. To obtain good coverage, a spray volume of 1500 to 4000 L/ha (15 to 40 L/100m

) is

required per infested hectare.

Ensure thorough coverage to the point of runoff.

Knapsack

Knapsack sprayers may be used on smaller infestations where penetration and coverage of the

canopy is easier to achieve. Use the same use rate and spray techniques as for handgun application.

B. Low Volume, High Concentrate Application

Drench Gun or Gas-Powered Gun

Apply the recommended mixture uniformly across the foliage by applying 50mL shots to cover 4 to 5

of surface area of plant. This is approximately equivalent to 20 droplets per cm

of the leaf surface.

Use a marking agent as recommended by the equipment manufacturer to check spray coverage.

C. Basal Bark and Cut Stump Application

Basal Bark

DO NOT apply to wet stems as this can repel the diesel mixture.

Spray or paint the recommended mixture around the base of each stem from ground level to a height

of at least 30 cm from the ground, wetting the bark to the point of runoff.

Apply with a paint brush or a pressure sprayer with an approximate lance and solid cone nozzle.

If using spray equipment use low pressures (</_ 200 kPa) sufficient to form a cone of spray.

Old rough bark will require more spray than smooth or young thin bark.

Cut Stump

Apply the recommended mixture liberally to the freshly cut stump immediately after cutting.

Apply by spraying or painting the cut surface and sides of the stump.

Best results are obtained when the stems are cut less than 15 cm above the ground.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area or, if this is unavailable, onto

wasteland away from desirable plants and water-courses.

Cleaning equipment after using water-based sprays:

Rinsing: After using SABAKEM Fluroxypyr 400 Herbicide, empty the tank completely and drain the whole

system. Thoroughly wash inside the spray unit using a pressure hose. Drain and clean any filters in

the tank, pump, lines, hoses and nozzles.

After cleaning the tank as above, quarter fill the clean water and circulate through the pump, lines and

nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.

Decontamination (before spraying cotton and other sensitive crops; see PROTECTION OF

CROPS): Wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Then quarter fill the tank and add an alkali

detergent (e.g. liquid SURF, OMO, DRIVE) at 500 mL/100L of water or the powder equivalent at 500

g/100 L and circulate throughout the system for at least fifteen minutes.

Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean them separately. Finally flush the

system with clean water and allow to drain.

Cleaning equipment after using diesel-based sprays:

On completion of spraying, use a degreaser such as Caltex Kwik-D-Grease to remove traces of diesel

from the sprayer. Rinse tank and spray through nozzles with water to remove degreaser.

Then quarter fill the tank and add an alkali detergent (e.g. liquid SURF, OMO, DRIVE) at 50 mL/10L of

water or the powder equivalent at 50 g/10 L of water. Shake sprayer to circulate the washing solution

throughout the sprayer, then spray the solution through the nozzles. Rinse well with clean water to

remove the detergent.

To clean brushes and containers, spray liberally with degreaser. Hose off with clean water and repeat

using detergents as above.

DO NOT use this equipment for any other purpose.
