Restraints (Brush Applications):
- Do not spray if rainfall is expected within 4 hours. Do not store the prepared spray for more than 2 days.
- Do not store tank mixes with other products.
- Do not apply to pastures based on paspalum notatum or setaria spp. As their vegetative growth will be reduced.
- Do not treat newly sown pastures as severe damage may occur.
- Do not use on pasture seed crops.
Use of Surfactant/ Wetting Agent:
- Metsulfuron 600 wg herbicide alone – it is important that a penetrant, surfactant or wetting agent is always used with this product. If no specific wetting agent/ surfactant is recommended in the directions for use table use a non-ionic surfactant (100%) at 100ml/ 100l of final spray volume.
- Metsulfuron 600 WG Herbicide tank mixed with Glyphosate – Use a non-ionic surfactant when mixing with glyphosate herbicide. In some tank mix situations the use of an organosilicone penetrant (eg Pulse, Eurochem Penetrant, Probe or Saturate) is recommended. This recommendation must be strictly followed in order to achieve adequate weed control.
- Gas gun applications – An organosilicone penetrant (eg Pulse, Eurochem Penetrant, Probe or Saturate) should be added at the rate of 10mL/ 5L or 200mL/100L of final spray volume.
- Where a mineral spray oil is recommended use 1L/100L of final spray volume (ie 1% volume/volume). A non-ionic surfactant should still be used with this mixture.
- Always read the instructions on the companion product label when tank mixing.
This product is compatible with glyphosate formulations and commonly used pasture & broadacre herbicides such as MCPA Amine, MCPA Ester, 2,4-D Amine, Dicamba, Clopyralid (Lontrel), Fluroxypyr (Starane), and commonly used insecticides such as chlorpyrifos and omethoate. Always refer to the companion product label for instructions/ restrictions.
Ecological and Environmental Effects:
- Metsulfuron-Methyl has a low toxicity to birds, aquatic organisms (including fish), bees and earthworms.
- The breakdown of metsulfuron-methyl in soils is largely dependent on soil temperature, moisture content, and pH.(acidity / alkalinity) The chemical will degrade faster under acidic conditions, and in soils with higher moisture content and higher temperature. The chemical has a higher mobility potential in alkaline soils, due to its higher solubility.
- Metsulfuron-methyl is stable to photolysis, but will break down in ultraviolet light. It is also stable to hydrolysis in neutral and alkaline conditions.
- Metsulfuron-methyl is rapidly taken up by plants at the roots and on foliage. The chemical is translocated throughout the plant, but is not persistent. In tolerant plants, it is broken down to non-herbicidal products.
- Harmful if swallowed.
- Will irritate the eyes and skin.
- Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
- When opening the container and preparing spray, wear elbow-length PVC gloves and goggles.
- If applying by hand wear cotton overalls, over normal clothing, buttoned to the neck and wrist and a washable hat and elbow length PVC gloves.
- If product on skin, immediately wash area with soap and water.
- If product in eyes, wash out immediately with water.
- Wash hands after use.
- After each day’s use, wash gloves, goggles and contaminated clothing.
Protection of Livestock:
- There is a nil withholding period for this product and stock may continue to graze where the product has been used in pasture situations.
- It is recommended that stock are removed from the pasture for about 3 days to ensure product efficacy.
- Certain plants such as bracken are naturally toxic to stock.
- When toxic plants are present, it is recommended that grazing be delayed until complete browning of treated plants has occurred.
- If poisoning occurs contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131 126.
- For further information, refer to the Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
Withholding Period Details (WHP):
Not required when used as directed.
- Metsulfuron-methyl 600 WG herbicide alone, metsulfuron-methyl 600 WG herbicide + glyphosate 360 – WHP not required when used as directed
- Mixtures with MCPA, Tordon 242, Terbutryn, 2,4-D – do not cut or graze for stock food for 7 days after tank mix application.
- Mixtures with Diuron flowable – do not cut or graze for stock food for 3 days after tank mix application
- Mixtures with Bromoxynil + MCPA – do not cut or graze for stock food for 14 days after tank mix application
