CROP STAGE

Sow crop evenly to a depth of 20 to 50 mm.

CLOVER BASED PASTURE:

Apply post-emergence, not before the 3 trifoliate leaf stage.

Warning: Some species and varieties may be more sensitive than others. Refer to legume tolerance table in the General Instructions. DO NOT apply to medics or yellow serradella. FIELD PEAS:

Apply early post-emergence after the third node stage and before the start of flowering. Warning: Field Peas grown on high pH soils in the presence of free lime may be less tolerant to Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC Herbicide.

LENTILS:

Apply early post-emergence after the third node stage of the crop.

Warning: Some lentil varieties may be more sensitive than others. DO NOT apply to Northfield variety. Avoid spray overlap.

LUPINS:

Post-emergence of Crop: Apply post-emergence from the 2 leaf to the 6 leaf stage of crop (40 to 100 mm high).

Post-sowing, Pre-emergence of Crop (Not WA): Apply in a tank mix with the recommended rate of post-sowing pre-emergence treatment of simazine. (Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC Herbicide should NOT be incorporated).

APPLICATION AND WEED CONTROL:

Apply when weeds are actively growing. For optimum results apply 4 to 6 weeks post-sowing.

Application beyond 8 week post-sowing may result in reduced levels of weed control. In most situations the rate specified for each weed size will give satisfactory control.

Under certain conditions such as:

  • • High crop and weed density
  • • Last season’s germinations
  • • Abnormal weed growth (including early flowering)

Higher rates of product (up to the maximum rate of application specified for that weed) may be required.

Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC Herbicide will NOT effectively control:

  • • Re-growth of suppressed weeds
  • • Transplanted weeds
  • • Re-growth from rhizomes or roots
  • • Weeds growing under stress from previous herbicide applications. The level of effective residual control may be reduced where:
    • • Rates lower than 200 mL/ha are used
    • • Dry conditions prevail
    • • Poor coverage of the soil surface is achieved
    • • Crop is planted in non-wetting sand
    • • Soils have a high content of clay or organic matter.

Where weeds are present at application, good spray coverage of the weeds is important. Apply before the crop canopy obscures weeds. Weed control may be reduced in areas where trash is dense or burnt straw from previous harvest is dense, such as in header trails. Best results will be obtained if good soil moisture exists at and after application.

See comments on Clover-based Pasture Field Peas, Lentils and Lupins.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

WITHHOLDING PERIOD: NOT REQUIRED WHEN USED AS DIRECTED.


GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

For use as an early post-emergence spray in clover-based pasture, field peas, lentils and lupins. Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC Herbicide may also be used as a pre-emergence spray on lupins in NSW, ACT, Vic, SA and Tas.

This product provides both contact and residual activity. Residual activity can be expected for up to 8 weeks after application under favourable growing conditions.

This product is taken up by the shoots of germinating seeds and seedlings. Susceptible weeds germinate but show immediate chlorosis followed by a mauve-pink discolouration. The chlorosis spreads with the aerial growth and the plants become necrotic and die back.

After application, some transient crop discolouration may occur. In lentils and lupins, this usually appears as yellow or white banding on the leaves, while in clover and field peas, white/pink colouration of the leaf veins and tips may occur. Some crop height reduction may also occur.

Provided the crop is not under stress from pre-emergence herbicide, disease, insect damage, nutrient deficiency, frost, extremes of pH, dry or excessively moist conditions, the development of the crop and all subsequent growth will not be affected.

Some pre-emergence herbicides, such as atrazine, can cause stress to certain crops resulting in an increase in crop damage when using this product. Field peas are particularly sensitive.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING

GROUP

F

HERBICIDE

Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC Herbicide is a member of the Nicotinanalide group of herbicides and acts by inhibiting carotenoid biosynthesis. For weed resistance management Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC

Herbicide is a Group F herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC Herbicide and other Group F herbicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC Herbicide or other Group F herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Apparent Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Apparent Diflufenican 500 SC Herbicide to control resistant weeds.

Subsequent Crop Tolerance: To reduce the effect on subsequent susceptible crops (eg. canola) ensure thorough cultivation of soil prior to the sowing of these crops.

MIXING

Stir product or invert container several times before use as settling may occur after storage for some weeks. To ensure even mixing, half fill the spray tank with clean water and add the required amount of product. Agitate thoroughly then add the remainder of the water. Agitate thoroughly while carrying out spray operations. Re-seal part-used container immediately after use.

APPLICATION

Ground: A minimum water rate of 50 L/ha should be used, however optimum results water rates of 70 – 100 L/ha are recommended. Increase the water volume where weed infestation is heavy or the crop cover is dense. Complete coverage of weeds is essential. Higher water volumes (up to 100 L/ha) will ensure improved activity of the product on the weeds but may increase the symptoms of crop damage.

The following settings are examples that will ensure excellent coverage of exposed weeds:
