GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Mixing

Add water to the spray tank to 10 cm above the level of agitation and ensure the agitation

device is working vigorously. (There must be a minimum of 100 L of water in the tank

before any pesticide is added.)

If tank mixing, firstly, add any soluble liquid formulations (e.g. LONTREL* Herbicide)

and allow agitation for approximately one minute.

Booklet

9 of 12

Then add Verdict 520 at the point where agitation is strongest. (Do not add Verdict

520 through a strainer or sieve). Allow further agitation for one minute.

Half fill the spray tank.

If using wettable powder or water dispersible granules, or other emulsifiable

concentration formulations (e.g. LORSBAN* 750 WG or LE-MAT

), these should be

added after the Verdict 520 to the half full spray tank ensuring vigorous agitation.

Finally add Uptake* Spraying Oil or approved alternate spraying oil/wetter. (See

section on spraying oils/wetters) and continue filling the tank to the required volume

maintaining agitation at all times.

Only mix sufficient solution for immediate use. Verdict 520 and any other tank mixes

should be applied immediately for best results.

Spraying Oils/wetters

Spraying Oils: It is essential to add an adjuvant to Verdict 520. Best results will be

achieved with Uptake Spraying Oil at 0.5 L/100 L of spray solution. Alternatively, other oils

plus a non-ionic wetter may also be used. When other crop spraying oils are used, mix at

1 L/100 L and add a non-ionic wetter (surfactant) at 200 mL/100 L of spray solution. Use

of an oil is not always recommended. See CRITICAL COMMENTS for specific situation

recommendations.

Non-ionic Wetters: When Uptake or other oils are not used, a 100% concentrate

Application

Apply Verdict 520 Herbicide in sufficient water to obtain good coverage. It should be

applied by an accurately calibrated ground rig or aircraft delivering droplets with a VMD of

200-300 microns.

The following spray volumes are recommended:

Ground application 50-150 L/ha

Aerial application

30 L/ha minimum

Use higher water volumes in orchards and in dense crops where the weeds may be

shielded by the crop canopy.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT

If broadleaf herbicides, particularly sulfonylureas, have been used in the spray equipment

at any time prior to Verdict 520, particular care should be taken to follow the directions on

the relevant broadleaf herbicide label for equipment cleaning, or damage to susceptible

crops may occur.

After using Verdict 520, empty the tank completely and drain the whole system.

Thoroughly wash inside the tank using a pressure hose, drain the tank and clean any

filters in the tank, pump, line and nozzles.

To rinse. After cleaning the tank as above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and

circulate through the pump, lines, hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing

procedure twice.

To decontaminate. Before spraying cereals , maize, sorghum or other sensitive crops,

wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Then quarter fill the tank and add an alkali

detergent (e.g. SURF

, Cold Water SURF Concentrate

, DynamoMatic Concentrate

or DRIVE

) at 500 mL/100 L of water or the powder equivalent at 500 g/100 L of

water, 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. Chlorine based cleaners are not recommended.

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

unavailable, onto unused land away from desirable plants and water sources.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

GROUP HERBICIDE

A

Verdict 520 Herbicide is a member of the aryloxyphenoxy propionate group of herbicides.

The product has the acetyl CoA carboxylase inhibitor mode of action. For weed resistance

management Verdict 520 Herbicide is a Group A herbicide.

Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other inhibitors of

acetyl CoA carboxylase 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 inhibitors of acetyl CoA carboxylase.

Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Dow

AgroSciences accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of the

product to control resistant weeds.

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

chemical supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture, or local Dow AgroSciences

representative.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

Verdict 520 Herbicide damages cereals and grasses.

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.

Cereal crops or grasses planted within twelve weeks of application may be damaged

by the residual effects of Verdict 520 Herbicide, particularly on light and red soils.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

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

periods.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Verdict 520 Herbicide is toxic to fish.

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

container.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

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

prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

DO NOT store near feedstuffs, fertilisers or seeds.

Triple rinse 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. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.
