Description

Komachi Activator Aminopyralid Herbicide

Active Ingredient: Aminopyralid (Present As Tri Isopropanolamine Salt) @ 80g/L

Komachi Activator Herbicide, made from Aminopyralid, is a premium control option of Eucalyptus species when mixed with a Triclopyr and Picloram Herbicide.  Tank mixes of Komachi Aminopyralid, Triclopyr and Picloram herbicides can be applied via high volume spraying (handguns) and low volume high concentrate application techniques including gas-powered / splatter guns & sprinkler sprayers.  The tank mix controls the target Eucalypt species without harming pasture grasses.

Aminopyralid remains active in the soil for extended periods depending on the rate of application, soil type (clay content), rainfall, temperature, humidity, soil moisture and soil organic matter.  Care must be taken as the active ingredients can prevent seeds from broadleaf species from germinating for many months after application. 

Aminopyralid is a key active ingredient in many leading woody weed herbicides including Grazon Extra Herbicide®, Tordon Regrowthmaster Herbicide®, Stinger Herbicide®, Vigilant II Herbicide® & Hotshot Herbicide® which are all registered trademarks of Corteva Agriscience

Komachi Activator Herbicide is compatible with many other herbicides & adjuvants but users should conduct small jar-tests to check for compatibility before preparing tank mixes. 

Extensive trials are underway on other weed species and once approved by the APVMA will be added to Kamachi’s label.   Off label tank mixes are not recommended by Specialist Sales or TGAC Aust. P/L.

Directions Of Use

High Volume Spraying:

Weeds Controlled: Eucalyptus spp.

Weed Growth Stage: Seedling and regrowth from small lignotubers, 1 to 3 m tall.

Rate per 100L Water: 35mL Komachi + 350mL of a Triclopyr/Picloram herbicide (1) or 50 mL Komachi + 500mL of a Triclopyr/Picloram herbicide (1)

Critical Comments: Apply the high rate where difficult to control species of Eucalyptus regrowth is present. Addition of an adjuvant may improve results. Contact TGAC Australia Pty Ltd for details. (1) Only to be used as a tank-mix with a herbicide containing both 300g/L Triclopyr and 100g/L Picloram. Always follow all the directions on the companion herbicide label


Low Volume High Concentrate Application Techniques (Gas Powered Gun, Sprinkler Sprayer)

Weeds Controlled: Eucalyptus spp.

Weed Growth Stage: Seedlings up to 2 m tall

Rate per 10L Water: 34 mL Komachi + 335mL of a Triclopyr/Picloram herbicide (1)

Critical Comments: Apply to actively growing bushes which are able to be sprayed on all sides. For larger bushes, the high volume application technique is recommended. (1) Only to be used as a tank-mix with a herbicide containing both 300g/L Triclopyr and 100g/L Picloram. Always follow all the directions on the companion herbicide label


Mixing:

  • Mix only with water.
  • Half fill the spray unit with water and add the required amount of Komachi Activator.
  • Add the companion herbicide (a 300g/L Triclopyr and 100g/L Picloram product) and then the remaining water with the agitator running.
  • If required, then add spray oils or wetters (surfactants).
  • Maintain mechanical or by-pass agitation in the spray tank during spraying.
  • Only mix sufficient solution for immediate daily use and avoid storing.

Application:
Only apply Komachi Activator under atmospheric conditions that do not allow drift onto sensitive crops to occur.

A. High Volume Spraying

  • Thorough coverage of foliage to the point of run-off is essential; however, avoid excess spraying which is wasteful of chemical.

Hand Gun

  • Apply the recommended mix to give full coverage of leaves and stems through a No. 6 to 8 tip at 700
    to 1500 kPa.

B. Low Volume High Concentrate Application Techniques

  • Good control will be achieved, similar to high volume application, where bush size enables good coverage of the entire bush. Use a marking agent, as recommended by the equipment manufacturers, to check spray coverage.

Gas powered gun:

  • Apply 50 mL shots to obtain uniform coverage of 4 to 5 m² of surface area of bush. This relates to 20 droplets/cm² of leaf surface.

Sprinkler sprayer:

  • This technique involves using a micro-sprinkler that is connected to a hollow fibreglass rod attached to a pneumatic knapsack sprayer. Use at low pressures (50 to 200 kPa) and apply with a slow sweeping action over the top of the plants ensuring even coverage on the leaves.

Rates are a general guide only. Before opening, carefully read Komachi Activator Herbicide directions for use, precautionary and protection statements, storage and disposal, safety directions and first aid instructions.

For professional use only.

  • Do not apply by aircraft.
  • Do not apply to weeds which may be stressed (not actively growing) due to prolonged periods of extreme cold, moisture stress (water-logged or drought-affected), poor nutrition, presence of disease, damage or previous herbicide treatment, as reduced levels of control may result.
  • Do not spray if rain is likely within 1 hour or if the foliage is wet from rain or dew.
  • In areas prone to flooding treatment should commence after any annual flooding as such areas flooded within 9 months following application may have reduced results.
  • Do not make hay or silage, from pastures treated with Komachi activator, for 6 months after application.

Important:

  • Read the management of residues in compost, mulches and animal waste in the protection of crops, natives and other non-target plants section of this label.

Precautions:

Management Of Residues In Compost, Mulches And Animal Waste:

  • Do not cut pasture for hay or silage production within 6 months of application, where it is intended for use off-farm.
  • Do not use treated plant material to make, compost, mulches or mushroom substrate.
  • Do not send straw from treated pastures off-farm for these purposes or for animal bedding.
  • Do not send animal manure, dairy shed and feed pad effluent that has been collected from animals grazing or fed pastures treated within the previous 6 months off-farm.
  • Spreading/irrigating this manure/effluent may cause damage to clover and other susceptible plants.
  • Do not send compost made from animal waste that has been collected from animals grazing or fed pastures treated within the previous 6 months off-farm. Such compost may cause damage to clover and other susceptible plants.
  • Do not apply animal waste (e.g. Manure, slurry) collected from animals grazing or fed pastures treated within the previous 6 months to susceptible plants or land to be used to grow susceptible plants.

Protections:

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

  • Crops susceptible to Komachi Activator Herbicide include, but are not limited to: peas, lupins, lucerne, navy beans, peanuts, soybeans and other legumes, cotton, flowers, fruit, hops, ornamentals, shade trees and pinus spp., Potatoes, safflower, sugar beet, sunflowers, tobacco, tomatoes, vegetables and vines. Macphersons Komachi activator herbicide is damaging to susceptible crops during both growing and dormant periods. Grasses are normally unaffected and establish quickly after treatment.
  • Aminopyralid, the active constituent in this product, can remain active in the soil for extended periods depending on soil type and application rate, rainfall, temperature, humidity, soil moisture and soil organic matter.
  • Do not apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping lands, pastures, waterways or native vegetation.
  • Do not allow physical spray drift onto waterways, native vegetation and susceptible crops.
  • Do not apply close to, or in areas, containing roots of desirable vegetation, where the treated soil may be washed onto areas growing (or areas to be planted with) desirable plants.
  • Do not apply on sites where surface water from heavy rain can be expected to run off to areas containing, or to be planted with susceptible crops or plants.
  • Do not move soil, which may have been treated to areas where desirable plants are to be grown.

Management Of Residues In Compost, Mulches And Animal Waste:

  • Do not cut pasture for hay or silage production within 6 months of application, where it is intended for use off-farm.
  • Do not use treated plant material to make, compost, mulches or mushroom substrate.
  • Do not send straw from treated pastures off-farm for these purposes or for animal bedding.
  • Do not send animal manure, dairy shed and feed pad effluent that has been collected from animals grazing or fed pastures treated within the previous 6 months off-farm.
  • Spreading/irrigating this manure/effluent may cause damage to clover and other susceptible plants.
  • Do not send compost made from animal waste that has been collected from animals grazing or fed pastures treated within the previous 6 months off-farm. Such compost may cause damage to clover and other susceptible plants.
  • Do not apply animal waste (e.g. Manure, slurry) collected from animals grazing or fed pastures treated within the previous 6 months to susceptible plants or land to be used to grow susceptible plants.
  • Do not grow susceptible plants in fields treated with manure/effluent from farms where animals have grazed or been fed treated pasture until a field bioassay shows there are no residues in the soil at levels injurious to the susceptible plants.
  • To promote herbicide decomposition, manure should be evenly incorporated in the surface soil. Breakdown of residues in decomposing plants or manure is more rapid under warm, moist soil conditions and may be enhanced by supplemental irrigation.

Re-Entry Period

  • Do not enter treated areas until the spray has dried, unless wearing cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical resistant gloves.
  • Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.

Protection Of Livestock:

  • Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying and stock should be kept away from these plants until they have died down.
    Many plants remain poisonous after death, and stock should not be allowed access, as there is a likelihood that they may graze the dead material.
  • Such material should be burnt if possible.

Protection Of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans And Environment

  • Do not contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical 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.
