Flupropanate Granular Herbicide GRANULAR-FLUPROPANATE Granular Products

Description

Flupropanate Granular Herbicide

Active Ingredient: Flupropanate @ 86.9g/kg

Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is a high-quality residual herbicide granule for the control of:

African Feathergrass (Pennisetum macrourum) Giant Rat’s Tail Grass
African love grass (Eragrostis curvula) Kikuyu grass (Pennisetum clandestinum)
Cane grass/Thatch grass, Jaragua grass Needle grasses (Nassella neesiana, N. leucotricha, N.hyalina, N. charruana, N. tenuissima)
Chilean Needle Grass Parramatta grass (Sporobolus pyramidalis and Sporobolus. natalensis)
Coolatai Grass (Small patchy infestations) (Hyparrhenia spp) Paspalum (Paspalum dilatatum)
Couch (Cynodon dactylon) Serrated Tussock (Nassella trichotoma)
Giant Parramatta Grass (Sporobolus fertilis),

Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is unique as it will selectively kill the above weed species without devastating many other desirable pasture species.  Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is a systemic herbicide with low contact activity as it is mainly taken up by the roots, where it is translocated to other parts of the plant. This process begins after a minimum of 5 mm of rain. The herbicide acts very slowly, and the first signs of the weeds dying may take up to 3 months – depending on factors such as soil type, rainfall, etc. A major benefit of this herbicide is its ability to keep killing germinating seedlings for 3-4 years after initial treatment.

  • Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is suitable for Aerial, ground and hand application.
  • A granular formulation that is not mixed in water. 
  • It is an effective residual herbicide. For best control, apply during periods of active plant growth.
  • Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is manufactured in Australia with a formula specifically designed for Australian conditions.
  • It is an economical choice for use in the control of Invasive Grasses on grazing lands.

Where can Flupropanate Granular Herbicide be used;

  • Industrial Use
  • Pastures and non-crop situations
  • Urban open space, woodlands, roadsides, nature reserves, pastures and non-crop situations
  • Commercial Forestry Araucaria, Corymbia, Eucalyptus and Pinus species
  • Non Crop Situations

Flupropanate Granular Herbicide can be applied at any time of the year. Treatment becomes effective after sufficient rainfall mobilizes the active into the root zone where it is absorbed by the Target grass. Herbicidal activity will continue for several seasons after application. The granules have a hardy clay carrier with the Flupropanate present both on the surface and within the clay core. This allows the granules to have a two-phase release, with the Flupropanate being rapidly released from the surface of the granule and then more slowly released from within the clay core. This, in turn, allows for better weed control.

The time required for complete plant death depends on soil type, amount of rainfall, root depth, plant species, plant density and rate of Flupropanate used.

The rate for aerial application will be between 7.5 kg/Ha and 15 kg/Ha. A single application is normally effective for several years.

Forage Grass production usually increases as competition is reduced. Increased grass production is also dependent on adequate rainfall and an acceptable grazing management program.

Flupropanate Granular Herbicide may cause temporary herbicidal symptoms to appear on perennial grasses. Higher rates used to control severe infestation may kill some beneficial grasses. This effect may be minimised by managing for application when grasses are dormant.

    Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is not restrained by the slope of the land to which it is being applied. However, it is susceptible to leaching and movement in the soil under heavy rainfall, and where possible, application should be delayed if intense rainfall is expected. The granules should not be applied during periods of intense rainfall or under conditions that will cause pellet movement to non-target areas. In areas with seasonal rainfall, useful applications may be made before rainfall events to bring plants into active growth (avoid runoff events).

    The withholding period details for the Flupropanate Granular Herbicide state that "Areas receiving spot treatment are not to be grazed or cut for stock feed for at least 14 days after treatment. Stock is not to be grazed in treated areas for 14 days prior to slaughter." Therefore, if you only applied the Flupropanate Granular Herbicide as a spot treatment, any stock grazed on that paddock in the future must be moved onto clean (not treated by flupropanate) paddocks for 14 days before going to slaughter.

    Flupropanate Granular Herbicide does not have an expiry date. However, manufacturers recommend that the best practice is to use herbicide within a 3-5 year period from the date of manufacture with correct storage, i.e., store in the closed original container in a dry, well-ventilated area, as cool as possible.

    Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is formulated to be applied only as a pellet/granule. Once used, the treatment becomes effective after sufficient rainfall, which allows the pellet to break down and be leached into the soil. The granules have a hardy clay carrier with the Flupropanate on the surface and within the clay core. This allows the granules to have a two-phase release, with the Flupropanate being rapidly released from the exterior of the granule and then more slowly released from within the clay core. If the granules are diluted with water, the clay will remain as a residue, blocking filters and spray nozzles. The dilution rate with water has also not been established for adequate control.

    For the application of Flupropanate Granular Herbicide along roadsides, we would recommend the Iris IE-SS/C 12V Electric Spreader. The adjustable spreader can apply a spreading pattern of 90 to 180 degrees (Right or left by manual settings). This is ideal for directing the granules onto the area off the roadside where the Chilian Needle grass is.

    When used at higher rates to target Parramatta Grass, Flupropanate Granular Herbicide may kill some beneficial grasses such as paspalum kikuyu, couch and other perennial grasses that are not listed on the product label. This effect may be minimised by managing for application when grasses are dormant or by applying as spot applications. Certain legumes may also be damaged if exposed to Flupropanate or germinate before rresidues dissipate from the soil.

    Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is not considered toxic to livestock, wildlife or pets. However, it may irritate the eyes or skin upon contact. The herbicide is encased in a clay carrier that slowly dissolves once applied and leaches into the soil.  The clay pellets are not considered attractive to pets or livestock and do not contain enough active ingredients to be toxic if consumed.

    Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is not specifically registered to control Poa labillardieri or 'Common Tussock Grass'. It is registered to control serrated Tussock (Nassella trichotoma) at a rate of 1.5g/m2 (15kg/Ha). This rate may be used as a guide if an 'off-label' test is undertaken to test the product's effectiveness on Poa labillardieri or 'Common Tussock Grass'.

    Flupropanate Granular Herbicide is not registered or recommended in domestic/turf situations. Flupropanate Granular Herbicide targets couch grass when used in industrial cases, so it is likely to cause severe damage or death in a turf situation.  The effect on Buffalo Turf is unknown as the product has not been tested or provided any data when used in this situation.

    Flupropanarte Granular Herbicide is a selective herbicide that targets certain grass and tussock species.  To the best of my knowledge, it will have no effect on broadleaf species (& weeds) and is not a complete knockdown herbicide.  If you did apply to areas with couch grass, it is certainly likely to affect the couch and other grasses that it comes in contact with (ie Paspalum & Kikuyu).  There is not a reduced rate to use in couch grass.  The recommended application rate for Needle Grasses is 22.5kg/Ha (2.25g/m2) and should be applied from Feb - December.  The Flupropanate will not have any effect on the seed present on the needle grass (ie will not kill or sterilise it).  The herbicide remains in the soil as a residual to control existing seeds that continue to germinate.  If you can, remove seed heads manually and destroy them.

Tips For Use

General Instructions:

  • This product is a granular formulation that is not mixed in water. It is an effective residual herbicide.
  • For best control, apply during periods of active plant growth.
  • Application, when vegetation is dormant, semi-dormant, under moisture stress or during winter months, may not be as effective.
  • In temperate winter rainfall areas where temperatures are generally below 25oC during the period of active growth, the overall effect may be slow to appear.
  • For best control of perennials, apply during spring months in these areas.
  • Sufficient moisture is required after treatment to promote root absorption by the weed species.
  • Results obtained may vary with rainfall, soil types and other conditions.
  • Do not apply during periods of intense rainfall or under conditions that will cause pellet movement to non-target areas.
  • Do not use this product via dust-prone methods.
  • Only use applicators specifically designed to dispense granular products.
  • Do not use human flaggers in aerial spraying unless protected by engineering controls such as enclosed cabs.

Restraints:

  • Do not apply near desirable, susceptible trees.
  • Damage to seedling trees is possible.
  • Do not allow drift onto susceptible crops or ornamentals.
  • Do not apply in dry winters, severe droughts or to weeds retarded by burning.
  • Do not apply to desirable perennial or annual grasses such as phalaris, perennial ryegrass, tall fescue, Poa tussock or annual ryegrass.
  • Do not apply in areas where deposited granules are accessible by the general public. This includes parks, gardens, recreational reserves, etc.

Note:

  • The optimum timing of GP Flupropanate application to avoid damage to desirable pasture species and/or allow GP Flupropanate residues to be leached from soil prior to Autumn re-feeding is the period November to February inclusive.
  • Precautions on re-seeding and protection of pasture legumes must be observed.

Application Timing:

  • May be applied all year round.
  • Especially for broadacre treatments, the best results are achieved when applied to actively growing stress-free weeds, particularly in warm periods.
  • In areas with seasonal rainfall, useful applications may be made before rainfall events to bring plants into active growth (avoid runoff events).
  • In the tablelands and cooler regions of SE Australia, useful applications can be made just before growing seasons to just before first frosts.
  • Poor results have occurred when applied in dry winters.
  • Poor results have occurred when applied in severe droughts or to weeds retarded by burning.

Important:

  • This product is very slow-acting, and control of existing growth will take 3-12 months, depending on weather conditions and the senescence of plant foliage.
  • The actual length of satisfactory residual control will depend on soil type and rainfall until regeneration occurs from grass seed or surviving rhizomes.
  • Avoid use in channels and drains where roots of desirable plants may extend and in other situations where plants grow close to the treated area.
  • Control of grasses growing in shaded conditions may be reduced.
  • Subterranean clover and other annual legumes may be damaged if exposed to this product or if they germinate before residues have dissipated from the soil.
  • Do not treat pasture land with this product more than once a year.
  • Excessive application rates above the recommended rate will reduce selective control and can cause a significant impact on desirable species, including sown perennial grasses.
  • This product is liable to leaching and movement in the soil under heavy rainfall, and where possible, application should be delayed if intense rainfall is expected.

Paddock preparation:

  • Graze desirable species before spraying to prevent them from covering weeds.

Re-Seeding:

  • Desirable pasture species such as Phalaris, cocksfoot, ryegrass, red and white clovers, subterranean clovers and lucerne may be sown after at least 100 mm of leaching rain has fallen.

Cleaning Up:

  • Equipment should be cleaned after use.

Protection of Crops, Native and Other Non-Target Plants:

  • Do not apply the product on or near desirable trees or other plants or on areas where their roots may extend.
  • As guidance, this is two times their height or more, depending on the species and other conditions.
  • Do not apply the product in areas where a surface flow of water could wash the chemical into areas where the roots of desirable trees or plants may extend.
  • Do not use in irrigation channels or in drains where water is discharged onto pasture land or cropland, on lawns, walkways, driveways or tennis courts.
  • Do not empty equipment in the above situations.

Protection of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans and the Environment:

  • Dangerous to fish.
  • Keep animals away from treated areas.

Storage:

  • Store in the closed original container in a dry, well-ventilated area, as cool as possible.
  • Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.
  • Do not re-use container or packaging.
  • During storage, keep from contact with fertilisers, other pesticides and seeds.

Safety Directions:

  • It may irritate the eyes and skin.
  • Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
  • When using the product, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and elbow-length chemical-resistant gloves.
  • Wash hands after use.
  • After each day’s use, wash gloves and contaminated clothing.
