Description

Surefire Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide

Active Ingredient: Metsulfuron-Methyl @ 600g/kg

Similar Or Comparable To Brush-Off (Dupont), Ally (Dupont), Associate (Nufarm), Militia Metsulfuron 600 WG Herbicide (Axichem) & Ozcrop Metsulfuron 600WG (OzCrop)

Surefire  Metsulfuron Methyl 600WG Herbicide is used for the control of certain broadleaf weeds in winter cereal crops and broadleaf weeds and brush species (woody weeds) in pastures, rights of way, commercial and industrial areas as per the Directions For Use table.

  • Surefire Metsulfuron Methyl is a residual sulfonylurea compound, used as a selective pre and postemergence herbicide for broadleaf weeds and some annual grasses. It is a systemic compound with foliar and soil activity, and it works rapidly after it is taken up by the plant. Its mode of action is by inhibiting cell division in the shoots and roots of the plant, and it is biologically active at low use rates. It is very effective on weeds that include bulbs or tubers.
  • Surefire Metsulfuron Methyl is commonly used in broadacre farming, woody weed & brush control and forestry situations. It is usually used together with other herbicides that control the weeds not susceptible to metsulfuron. Metsulfuron-methyl also controls susceptible weeds in cereals, where selectivity is due to rapid metabolism within the cereal plants.

Brush Control:

  • Surefire Metsulfuron Methyl 600 controls more than 40 different species of brush, broadleaf and bulbous weeds. Mixed infestations of hard to control woody weeds, including Lantana, Gorse, Bracken, Tree-of-Heaven and Blackberry, are also easily controlled with one pass.
  • Surefire Metsulfuron Methyl 600 also controls nuisance pasture weeds, including Doublegee, Erodium, Sorrel, Onion grass and Paterson’s Curse, & many more.
  • For a full table of weeds controlled, refer to the directions of use.

Broad Acre:

  • Surefire Metsulfuron Methyl 600 is a highly selective herbicide for the control of many broadleaf weeds in winter cereals. It can be applied any time from the three-leaf stage of the crop – when the weeds are young and actively growing – to before booting.
  • Surefire Metsulfuron Methyl 600 is compatible with a wide range of grass and broadleaf herbicides, making weed control even more cost-effective with the one-pass application.

Surefire Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide Pack Size: 500g (includes 11-gram measure scoop)

    Surefire Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide is not registered for or claims to control the weeds you listed.  However, they are classified as broadleaf plants, likely to be susceptible to the Metsulfuron-Methyl.  We suggest mixing a 2nd broadleaf herbicide with the Metsulfuron to spike the mix and give you better results.  A herbicide such as 24D Amine or Grazon Extra would be recommended for this purpose, plus a suitable wetting agent or penetrant.

    Asked by Lyndal on June 26, 2022 8:50 am
    Answered by the admin

    Carrot weed, also known as annual ragweed, ambrosia, American wormwood, carrot weed, hay fever weed, hogweed or common ragweed, is not registered to be controlled by Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide.  Carrot weed is susceptible to other selective broadleaf herbicides such as Dicamba M and Dicamba 500, so Metsulfuron will likely have some control, but as it is not registered for this purpose, a test or trial should be undertaken first, as with any 'off-label' use.  We do not recommend using Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide in domestic or turf situations.

    Asked by Steve Long on June 4, 2022 1:27 pm
    Answered by the admin

    The use of Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide for Singapore Daisy control is registered for use under a permit by the APVMA and hence is not listed on the product labels.  As Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide is a slow-acting herbicide, we recommend waiting at least 2-3 weeks after application before mowing or cutting the grass.  If you get a quicker kill of the Singapore Daisy and are confident the chemical has translocated into the root system, then mowing can occur sooner.

    Asked by Evan on May 4, 2022 5:58 pm
    Answered by the admin

    Metsulfuron Methyl mainly targets broadleaf species of plants and is not registered to have any control over grasses like paspalum.  It is also not registered or recommended for use in domestic gardens or turf situations as damage to close-by non-target species (trees, shrubs etc.) can occur.

    Asked by Alan John McNamara on May 3, 2022 10:33 am
    Answered by the admin

    To the best of our knowledge, there are no chemicals registered to control Wynn-Cassia.  As Wynn-Cassia is a short-lived herbaceous perennial legume, herbicides registered to control broad-leaved plants are recommended.  We believe a mixture of Metsulfuron-Methyl, Grazon Extra (or equivalents to Grazon DS) and a suitable wetting agent/penetrant would be worth testing to evaluate control.

  15. Q Will this Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide kill richardia?
    Asked by Craig on April 30, 2022 11:07 am
    Answered by the admin

    To the best of our knowledge, there are no chemicals registered in Australia to control Richardia.  Feedback from customers who have done their own 'off-label' trials with selective broadleaf herbicides has reported good results.  These chemicals included Stadium Turf Selective Herbicide and Dicamba M Selective Herbicide.  As Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide is a selective herbicide, it may also be effective on Richardia.  If you are going to do your own trial with Metsulfuron, caution is recommended as Metsulfuron can cause damage or death to non-target broadleaf species such as shrubs, trees, roses, etc.

    Asked by Tracey flaherty on April 25, 2022 5:16 pm
    Answered by the admin

    Metsulfuron 600WG Herbicide does not claim any control over snakeweed or billygoat weed.  These plants may be susceptible to the Metsulfuron-Methyl, but you will have to try the product off-label to test the results.  We suggest you look at 24D Amine 625 Herbicide, which includes these weeds on its label.

    Metsulfuron Methyl Herbicide is registered to target specific broadleaf species without harming grasses.  Metsulfuron Methyl is unlikely to have any effect on controlling green couch grass.

    Asked by Kylie Strelow on November 28, 2021 12:43 pm
    Answered by the admin Do not apply metsulfuron-methyl to buffalo grass.  Metsulfuron is used to target and kill mainly broadleaf species of plants.  Buffalo grass is a broadleaf species.  We would suggest you look at a product such as Surefire Buffalo, Bindi & Broadleaf Weedkiller specifically for use in buffalo grass.

Tips For Use

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.

Compatibility:

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.

Safety Directions:

  • 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.

First Aid:

  • 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

Withholding Period Details (WHP):
