Tussock Herbicide - Flupropanate TUSSOCK Grow Choice

Description

Tussock Herbicide

Active Ingredient: Flupropanate @ 745g/L

Similar or equivalent to Taskforce Herbicide (Vee Dri), AC Sporo 745 Herbicide (Axichem) & Rocky Herbicide (Apparent)

Tussock Herbicide is for the control of certain grasses, including serrated tussock, Chilean needle grass, giant rat’s tail grass, giant parramatta grass, and African lovegrass (Eragrostis curvula) in pastures, grazing lands and other situations. It is a selective herbicide, meaning that it will kill the target weeds without harming most other plants.

Tussock Herbicide contains Flupropanate, which has residual properties, meaning that it will remain in the soil and continue to kill germinating weed seedlings for an ongoing period after application. This makes it an effective herbicide for controlling long-lived perennial weeds, such as serrated tussock and giant rat’s tail grass.

What grass weeds does Tussock Herbicide target;

  • African Feathergrass (Pennisetum macrourum)
  • African love grass (Eragrostis curvula)
  • Columbus Grass (Sorghum album)
  • Coolatai Grass (Hyparrhenia spp)
  • Couch (Cynodon dactylon)
  • Giant Parramatta Grass (S. fertilis)
  • Giant Rat’s Tail Fescue (S.pyramidalis)
  • Giant rat’s tail grass (Sporobolus natalensis)
  • Johnson grass (Sorghum halepense)
  • Kikuyu grass (Pennisetum clandestinum)
  • Needle grasses (Nassella neesiana, N. leucotricha, N. hyalina, N. charruana, N. tenuissima)
  • Parramatta grass (Sporobolus spp.)
  • Paspalum (Paspalum dilatatum)
  • Rats Tail Grasses
  • Serrated Tussock (Nassella trichotoma)

Where can Tussock Herbicide be used;

  • Industrial Use
  • Nature Reserves
  • Non-Crop Situations
  • Pastures (perennial grass pastures)
  • Roadsides
  • Tea Tree Oil Plantations
  • Urban Open Space
  • Woodlands

Tussock Herbicide is a systemic herbicide primarily absorbed by the roots of plants and translocated to other parts of the plant, killing germinating seedlings for up to 3-4 years after initial treatment. It acts slowly, and the first signs of weed death may take up to 3 months, depending on factors such as soil type and rainfall. 

Tussock is very slow-acting (3-12 months). The tips of the target weed will yellow off first, which may take 2-4 months, depending on the time of year it was applied. Tussock Herbicide is washed into the soil by rain or heavy dews and is then absorbed by the roots of the target weeds.

Questions and answers from customers

    We have African Love grass growing in amongst improved pasture species like buffel, digitaria and urochloa, also native species of kangaroo grass and QLD blue grass. At the recommended boom spray rate of 3 litres to the hectare for African love grass control, would these preferred grasses be damaged.

    Tussock Herbicide has strict withholding period details (WHP) listed regarding the minimum amount of time that must pass after applying a herbicide to a pasture or crop before allowing livestock to graze on it. The WHP varies depending on the application (i.e. spot spraying or blanket treatments). The WHP for Tussock Herbicide is available on the Specialist Sales website. Open the Tussock Herbicide page and click on the 'withholding period' tab. Alternatively, these details can be found on the directions for use or on the APVMA website.

    Tussock Herbicide is not registered or recommended to control Pampas Grass (Cortaderia species).  To the best of our knowledge, there are no selective herbicides registered to control Pampas Grass.

Tips For Use

General Instructions:

  • 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.
  • Tussock Herbicide is liable to leaching and movement in the soil under heavy rainfall or irrigation, and dry conditions favour its persistence in the soil.
  • Avoid use in channels and drains where the roots of desirable plants may extend and in other situations where desirable 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 by this product if exposed to the spray or if they germinate before product residues have dissipated from the soil. 
  • Do not treat pasture land with this product more than once per year.

Restraints: 

  • Do not apply this product to steeply sloping sites when applying high rates recommended for perennial grass control.
  • Do not allow spray drift onto susceptible crops and ornamentals.
  • Do not spray near desirable trees.

Mixing: 

  • This product is highly soluble in water, and the required amount can be added directly to the spray tank while stirring or with the agitator running. 
  • When used in mixtures with dispersible powders, first make a slurry of the powder in a small quantity of water, add this to the half-filled spray tank with the agitator running, and then add the required quantity of product and continue filling until the spray tank is full. 
  • Good agitation must be maintained during the spraying operation.

Wetting Agents:

Compatibility:

  • This product may be mixed with Glyphosate to improve knockdown of existing vegetation.

Application:

  • Boom spray equipment should be carefully calibrated to deliver the required volume of spray and checked to see that the nozzles are delivering a uniform spray pattern.

Paddock Preparation:

  • Graze to reduce cover of desirable species for spraying.

Re-seeding:

  • Desirable pasture species such as phalaris, cocksfoot, ryegrass, red and white clovers, subterranean clovers and lucerne may be sown after at least 100mm of leaching rain has fallen. If drought conditions prevail, defer sowing until next season.

Protection Of Crops, Native And Other Non-Target Plants:

  • 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.

Protection Of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans And Environment:

  • Do not contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemicals or used containers.

Storage:

  • Store in the closed original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. 
  • Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

Safety Directions:

  • Avoid contact with eyes and skin. 
  • Do not inhale spray mist. 
  • When preparing the spray, wear elbow-length PVC gloves and face shields or goggles. 
  • If the product is on the skin, immediately wash the area with soap and water. 
  • Always use in the open or a well-ventilated area.
  • After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water. 
  • After each day’s use, wash gloves and face shields or goggles and contaminated clothing.

First Aid:

  • If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or the Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131 126.
  • If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash the skin thoroughly.
  • For further information, refer to the Safety Data Sheet (SDS).

Withholding Period

Withholding period details (WHP):

There are two withholding periods (WHPs), which apply one after the other for this chemical, and both must be observed.

The first, the grazing and cutting WHP, depends on the type of spraying used. 

Stock that have been grazed in treated areas after the grazing and cutting WHP has passed must then be moved to untreated areas or fed on clean feed for at least 14 days before slaughter. The requirement for moving animals from treated to untreated areas or feeding them with clean feed for at least 14 days before animals are sent to slaughter applies permanently to treated areas, whether spot sprayed or sprayed in some other way. 

Spot Spraying: Spot spray treatment is the direct hand spraying of individual plants in an area with no spraying of any surrounding areas. Do not graze or cut for stock feed, areas that have received spot treatment, for at least 14 days after spraying. Do not graze stock in treated areas for at least 14 days prior to slaughter or being milked for human consumption. 

Blanket treatment (treatment other than spot-spraying): Do not graze treated areas or cut for stock feed for 4 months after application. 

Do not graze stock in treated areas for at least 14 days prior to slaughter or being milked for human consumption. 


Tea Tree Oil Plantations: 

Lactating cows and goats must not be grazed in treated areas.
