Domestic Use |
||A pre-emergence herbicide for the control of annual grasses and certain broadleaf weeds incertain horticultural and agricultural crops.
||General Instructions |
THIS PRODUCT MUST BE INCORPORATED INTO THE SOIL WITHIN 4 HOURS OF APPLICATION EXCEPT WHERE THE CROP IS SOWN WITH MINIMUM TILLAGE SOWING EQUIPMENT (FITTED WITH KNIFE POINTS OR BLADES LESS THAN 12MM WIDE, USUALLY WITH PRESS WHEELS) WHERE APPLICATION MAY OCCUR UP TO 24 HOURS BEFORE INCORPORATION BY THE SOWING PROCESS.
1. Prior to furrowing out: - 2 workings at an angle required using Offset or Tandem disc harrows.
2. After furrowing out: - 2 workings required using Go- Devil discs or Lilliston cultivators set at 10 cm depth.
3. Rotary Hoe: - 1 working required at 5-7.5cm depth. Sugar Cane: - 7.5-13cm depth.
4. Offset or Tandem Disc Harrows:- (preferably with spiked harrows in tandem) 2 workings at an angle required at 7.5-15cm depth at 6.5-10km per hour.
5. Heavy Diamond or Stump Jump Harrows:- (weighted 20-30kg per section) at 10-13 km/h speed. Then cross work with offset or tandem disc harrows set to 7.5-15cm depth at speed 6.5-10km per hour.
6. Weighted Heavy Diamond or Stump Jump Harrows: (weighted with 20-30kg per section) at 10-13km/hr. Cross work with combine at 5-7.5cm depth at speed of 10-13km/hr.
7. Disc Ratoon Cultivator: - 2 workings needed with discs and cultivator set at 7.5-13cm depth.
8. Offset or Tandem Disc Harrows:- set at 7.5-15cm depth. A second discing is required working in opposite direction with discs set to throw treated soil into tree or vine row.
9. Rotary Hoe: - 1 working needed at 5-10cm depth.
10.Offset Discs(Bumpers): - 2 workings needed at depth of 7.5-13cm.
11. Incorporation by sowing (IBS) on suitably prepared seedbed with heavy diamond harrows trailing or as a separate operation.
12.Post-sowing/Pre-emergence: Use heavy diamond harrows cross working at right angles to the direction of sowing. Do not attempt this method of incorporation on poorly prepared, clumpy or cloddy soils.
13.Incorporation by Sowing (IBS) with knife or blade points. Use press wheels to avoid dragging treated soil back into the seed furrow. Maintain slow to moderate speed to ensure that soil throw is not into adjacent furrows.- Note:
a. - Knife or blade point systems can result in poor weed control in the seed furrow as chemical displacement from this zone occurs. Stubble coverage above 40-50% ground cover can reduce weed control below acceptable levels.
b. A Knife or blade point is 12mm or less, has no wings, inverted T or blade, and is generally placed on a minimum 8 inch tyne spacing.
This product is an emulsifiable concentrate which mixes readily with water. Add the recommended amount to the spray tank during filling operation and apply 70-450L of water/ha (broadcast basis) dependent on soil type and stubble coverage level. For minimum tillage/stubble retention seeding systems use of higher water volumes may help reduce the impact of stubble.
Ensure adequate agitation is continued throughout the operation. Leaving the made up spray mixture for long periods of time without agitation is not recommended. Under hot conditions or where possible spray and incorporate into the soil in one operation. Delay may cause inferior weed control. Use properly calibrated standard low pressure (170-340 kilopascal) boom type sprayer with fan tips.
Condition for Best Results
This product must be thoroughly incorporated as recommended. Soil should be well worked and free of weeds at time of application. Product effectiveness may be reduced by inadequate incorporation, high organic matter, excess clods, crop or trash residues, stones or other foreign matter and in areas of unnaturally high weed seed population such as header tracks or livestock rest areas. Trifluralin is volatile and disappears from exposed surfaces. Loss is hastened by high temperatures, winds or warm moist soil.
Integrated Weed Management Strategy for TT Canola
The use of Integrated Weed Management techniques in conjunction with Trifluralin 480 are always recommended. Agronomic practices that reduce the weed seed bank in the soil prior to the use of Trifluralin 480 will result in higher weed control levels from Trifluralin 480. Failure to use Agronomic and Integrated Weed Management practices that reduce the weed seed bank in the soil will result in higher weed seed populations. Paddocks with excessively high weed seed banks may have sufficient weed numbers surviving such that final weed control may be considered below a commercially acceptable level and additional herbicide treatments may be necessary. The use of Integrated Weed Management techniques will also reduce the potential for the development or survival of Group D herbicide resistance weed biotypes.
Germinating wild oat seeds lying on soil surface will be controlled. Therefore, specific wild oat control is only possible with shallow cultivation. Poor control will occur on self mulching soils and all soil types where deep cultivation is practised.
This product may be mixed in the spray tank with:
Herbicides: Avadex Xtra, LustaTM/Glean, Nugran/Logran, Diurex WG, Simagranz, Nuquat 250, Gramoxone, Spray.seed, Broadstrike,Spinnaker, Bladex, Sencor/Lexone, Credit/Bonus
Insecticides: Chlorpyrifos 500EC, Endosan EC
NOTE: 1. Information on compatibility is understood to be correct at the time of publication, however products may vary from time to time, therefore a small scale compatibility test should be carried out before mixing in the spray tank. 2. Observe any mixing sequence instructions for tank mix products.
Equipment Maintenance & Usage
Keep the spray unit for herbicides only if possible. Otherwise, spray tanks, pumps, lines and nozzles should be thoroughly rinsed several times with clean water following application. Spraymate Tank & Equipment Cleaner is suitable for this purpose and will also remove Trifluralin stains.
||Crop Care Trifluralin 480 Selective Herbicide (Trifluralin 480) is a member of the Dinitronilines group of herbicides. Trifluralin 480 has the inhibitors of tubulin formation mode of action. For weed resistance management Trifluralin 480 is a Group D herbicide.
Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to Trifluralin 480 and other Group D 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 Trifluralin 480 or other Group D herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Crop Care Australasia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Trifluralin 480 to control resistant weeds.
