PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT apply this product within 60m of natural or impounded lakes or dams

DO NOT use in channels or drains where roots of desirable plants may extend. Wash sprayer thoroughly with clean water after use

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers. This product is very highly toxic to

algae and aquatic macrophytes.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

DO NOT apply under meteorological conditions or from spraying equipment that may cause spray drift on to nearby susceptible

plants, crops, pastures or croplands.

Do not use in channels or drains.

Do not apply or drain or flush equipment on or near desirable trees or other plants or on areas where their roots may extend or

in locations where the chemical may be washed or moved into contact with their roots.

Do not spray foliage of desirable plants. Do not apply high rates of application to heavier soils if roots of desirable shrubs and

trees are near the surface. Do not use near newly planted shrubs, young ornamentals or species with shallow roots.

When spraying at high rates for total weed control do not spray beds where desirable annual plants are to be grown. Crops such

as lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots and red beet are particularly sensitive to Simazine residues.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

This product is a pre-emergent and herbicide which selectively controls certain annual and perennial weeds in the situations as

listed in the directions for use table. It can also be used to control weeds in Triazine Tolerant Canola varieties. Established

perennial species will not be controlled at the rates recommended. Duration and effectiveness of control depends on the amount

of chemical applied, soil type, rainfall, weed species and other conditions. Best results are achieved if the product is applied to

bare moist soil. Since the product mainly enters weeds through root absorption, sufficient moisture (either rainfall or irrigation)

is required to move the product into the root zone of weeds to make the product effective.

Mixing

Stir the product or invert the container prior to use in case settling has occurred in storage. Partially fill the spray tank with water

and maintain agitation while adding the required quantity of Sipcam Simazine 500. Agitation should continue after filling and

during spraying. If spray is allowed to stand, agitate thoroughly before resuming spraying.

INTEGRATED WEED MANAGEMENT STRATEGY FOR TT CANOLA

The use of this product in TT canola is subject to an Integrated Weed Management Strategy for the use of triazine herbicides

in TT canola’ The Strategy encompasses:

Integrated Weed Management;

the specific management of crop plant volunteers and outcrossing to other plants; and

triazine herbicide residue management (agronomic and environment).

Compliance with registered label directions and adoption of the principles outlined in the Strategy will assist with implementation

of crop management practices that minimise the development of herbicide resistance in treated weeds; reduce the levels of

triazine residues in the environment; and manage volunteer plants and outcrossing.

Copies of the Strategy are available from Sipcam representatives or by contacting Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd, Suite 11,

23-31 Gheringhap Street, Geelong VIC 3220 phone: (03) 5223 3746 or fax

(03) 5223 3756.

Where specific information and farm management assessment is required to assist with application of Integrated Weed

Management programs on-farm, particularly in adapting strategies to local conditions, then specific expert advice should be

obtained from an appropriate agronomist, consultant, chemical supplier or Departmental adviser.

To minimise herbicide resistance:

Avoid dry sowing in heavily weed infested paddocks. Wait for a weed germination after the opening rains in weedy

paddocks. Use a pre-plant knockdown or cultivation. No weeds should be allowed to survive at this stage.

Adapt the weed control program to the anticipated weed spectrum and pressure:

Broadleaf Weeds and Ryegrass: Use Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable Herbicide or Sipcam Maizina 500 Flowable

Herbicide plus trifluralin pre-emergence. A follow-up with a Group A herbicide (if ryegrass is susceptible) or Sipcam

Maizina 500 Flowable Herbicide may be necessary.

Broadleaf Weeds only: Use Sipcam Maizina 500 Flowable Herbicide post-emergence.

DO NOT use Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable Herbicide or Sipcam Maizina 500 Flowable Herbicide if the area to be

treated had a triazine herbicide applied to it last season.

Watch for escapes, especially in paddocks with a long history of Group C herbicide use.

DO NOT use Group C herbicides in consecutive years.

Resistant Weeds Reporting

Growers should collect plant or seed samples where weeds that are normally susceptible to atrazine and simazine may be

resistant, get them tested and seek professional advice.

To avoid Triazine carry-over:

On acid soils (pH less than 6.5) - The maximum rate of Use Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable Herbicide or Sipcam

Maizina 500 Flowable Herbicide or a combination of the two products to be applied to the crop during the growing

season is 4 L/ha.

On alkaline soils (pH greater than 6.5) - The maximum rate of Use Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable Herbicide or

Sipcam Maizina 500 Flowable Herbicide or a combination of the two products to be applied to the crop during the

growing season is 2 L/ha.

Post-emergence use - It is recommended that Sipcam Maizina 500 Flowable Herbicide only be used, and at rates of 2

L/ha or less, on both acid or alkaline soils.

Compatibility

This product is compatible with amitrole and diuron flowable..

It may also be mixed with glyphosate, paraquat, diquat or paraquat/diquat mixtures provided the mixture is agitated vigorously.

When mixing with glyphosate add crystalline ammonium sulphate 2kg/100L to avoid antagonism.

Avoid mixing in extremely cold weather (2-5

C). The use of a buffering agent is recommended when mixing with alkaline water

(pH 8-12).

TT-Canola: Application

DO NOT apply to TT-canola by aircraft. Apply only with a low boom spray with a 60m buffer downwind of treated fields to

natural or impounded lakes or dams, and a 20m buffer zone for any, sink hole, intermittent or perennial stream. Apply only to

areas where run-off is unlikely to occur or where run-off may be captured by farm earthworks.

Application

Apply in a minimum of 50L/ha (WA); 100L/ha (SA, NSW, Vic, Qld); 200L (Tas). Higher water volumes are preferred to increase

the evenness and accuracy of application.

Resistant Weeds Warning

GROUP

HERBICIDE

Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable Herbicide is a member of the triazines group of herbicides. Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable

Herbicide has the inhibitor of photosynthesis at photosystem II mode of action. For weed resistance management Sipcam

Simazine 500 Flowable Herbicide is a Group C Herbicide.

Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable Herbicide 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 Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable

Herbicide or any other Group C herbicide.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use , Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Limited accepts no liability

for any losses that may result from the failure of Sipcam Simazine 500 Flowable Herbicide to control resistant weeds.

RE-ENTRY PERIOD DO NOT enter treated areas without protective clothing until spray has dried

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT apply this product within 60m of natural or impounded lakes or dams

DO NOT use in channels or drains where roots of desirable plants may extend. Wash sprayer thoroughly with clean water after use.

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

This product is very highly toxic to algae and aquatic macrophytes.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

DO NOT apply under meteorological conditions or from spraying equipment that may cause spray drift on to nearby susceptible

plants, crops, pastures or croplands.

Do not use in channels or drains.

Do not apply or drain or flush equipment on or near desirable trees or other plants or on areas where their roots may extend or

in locations where the chemical may be washed or moved into contact with their roots.

Do not spray foliage of desirable plants. Do not apply high rates of application to heavier soils if roots of desirable shrubs and

trees are near the surface. Do not use near newly planted shrubs, young ornamentals or species with shallow roots.

When spraying at high rates for total weed control do not spray beds where desirable annual plants are to be grown. Crops such

as lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots and red beet are particularly sensitive to Simazine residues.

Do not plants to crops other than those recommended on this label for at least 9 months following application of this product up

to 4.5L/ha. When application rates exceed 4.5L/ha, planting may not be possible for long periods of time.

Do not make more than two applications in any one year in asparagus, berry fruit, citrus, almonds, gladioli, hops, lupins, roses,

apples, pears or vineyards.

Heavy rain following application prior to emergence may cause damage to chickpeas.

Section 11 - Toxicological Information

There is no data to hand indicating any particular target organs.

Toxicity:

An information profile for Simazine is available at http://extoxnet.orst.edu/pips/ghindex.html

Acute toxicity: The reported oral LD

for technical Simazine in rats and mice is >5000 mg/kg; its dermal LD

3100 mg/kg in rats and > 10,000 mg/kg in rabbits. The 4-hour inhalation LC

in rats is greater than 2 mg/L. The

formulated products, in most cases, are less toxic via all routes. Simazine is nonirritating to the skin and eyes of

rabbits except at high doses. Symptoms exhibited by poisoned sheep included lower food intake, higher water intake,

incoordination, tremors, and weakness, especially in the hindquarters.

Chronic toxicity: Some 90-day feeding studies showed reduced body weight at 67 to 100 mg/kg/day. This same

effect and kidney toxicity were seen in rats at doses of 150 mg/kg/day. In 2-year chronic oral feeding studies in which

rats were given daily dosages of 5 mg/kg/day of Simazine in the diet, no gross or microscopic signs of toxicity were

seen. When rats were given repeated doses of 15 mg/kg/day, some liver cells degenerated during the first 3 days, but

the condition did not progress. Instead, the liver adapted and the compound was metabolized. Other effects observed

in test animals include tremors, damage to the testes, kidneys, liver, and thyroid, disturbances in sperm production,

and gene mutations.

Reproductive effects: No adverse effects on reproductive capacity or development were observed in a three-

generation study of rats fed 5 mg/kg/day Simazine. Reproductive effects are not likely in humans under normal

circumstances.

Teratogenic effects: No dose-related teratogenic effects were observed when rabbits were given daily doses of 5,

75, or 200 mg/kg for days 7 through 19 of pregnancy. Simazine does not appear to be teratogenic.

Mutagenic effects: Simazine has shown negative results in a variety of mutagenicity tests on bacterial cultures. It is

likely that Simazine is either nonmutagenic or weakly mutagenic.

Carcinogenic effects: Simazine was not tumorigenic in mice at the maximum tolerated dose of 215 mg/kg/day over

an 18-month period. In other studies, doses as low as 5 mg/kg/day produced excess tumours (thyroid and mammary)

in female rats. Because of inconsistencies in the data, it is not possible to determine Simazine's carcinogenic status.

Organ toxicity: Damage to the testes, kidneys, liver, and thyroid has been observed in test animals.

Fate in humans and animals: Studies in rats, goats, and sheep reveal that 60 to 70% of the ingested dose may be

absorbed into the system, with approximately 5 to 10% distributed systemically to tissues. The remainder is

eliminated via urine within 24 hours. It has been reported that Simazine residues were present in the urine of sheep

for up to 12 days after administration of a single oral dose. The maximum concentration in the urine occurred from 2

to 6 days after administration.

Section 12 - Ecological Information

Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects to the aquatic environment. This product is

biodegradable. It will not accumulate in the soil or water or cause long term problems.

Effects on birds: Simazine is practically nontoxic to birds. The reported LD

values in mallard and Japanese quail

are >4600 mg/kg and 1785 mg/kg, respectively. Similar high values are reported for other species.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Simazine is very toxic to aquatic organisms.

Effects on other organisms: While many mammals may be insensitive to Simazine, sheep and cattle are especially

sensitive. Simazine is nontoxic to bees. A soil LC

in earthworms of >1000 mg/kg has been reported.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Simazine is moderately persistent with an average field half-life of 60 days.

Soil half-lives of 28-149 days have been reported. Residual activity may remain for a year after application (2 to 4

kg/ha) in high pH soils. Simazine is moderately to poorly bound to soils. It does, however, adsorb to clays and mucks.

Its low water solubility, however, makes it less mobile, limiting its leaching potential.

Breakdown in water: The average half-life of Simazine in ponds where it has been applied is 30 days, with the actual

half-life dependent on the level of algae present, the degree of weed infestation, and other factors. Simazine may

undergo hydrolysis at lower pH. It does not readily undergo hydrolysis in water at pH = 7.

Poisons Information Centre: 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia, (0800 764 766 in New Zealand)

Breakdown in vegetation: Plants absorb Simazine mainly through the roots, with little or no foliar penetration. From

the roots, it is translocated upward to the stems, leaves, and growing shoots of the plant. It acts to inhibit

photosynthesis. Resistant plants readily metabolize Simazine. Plants that are sensitive to Simazine accumulate it

unchanged. It is possible that livestock or wildlife grazing on these plants could be poisoned.
