Description

Shotup Herbicide

Active Ingredients: Aminopyralid @ 10g/L & Fluroxypyr @ 140g/L

Similar or comparable to Hotshot Herbicide (Corteva)

Shotup Herbicide is for the control of climbing buckwheat and other broadleaf weeds in winter cereals and fallow, and control of lantana and other woody weeds in non-crop situations.  Shotup Herbicide contains Fluroxypyr and Aminopyralid.  Aminopyralid is a pyridine carboxylic used as a selective, post-emergent herbicide to control key broadleaf weeds. It is a new generation active ingredient that is effective at very low rates when compared with other herbicides.

What weeds does Shotup Herbicide target;

Climbing buckwheat (Fallopia convolvulus) (black bindweed) Lantana (Lantana camara) Vetch (Vicia sativa)
Cockspur thorn (Maclura cochinchinensis) Mistflower (Ageratina riparia) Volunteer chickpea (Cicer arietinum)
Common sowthistle (Sonchus oleraceus) Prickly lettuce (Lactuca serriola) Volunteer faba bean (Vicia faba)
Creeping lantana (Lantana montevidensis) Red pigweed (Portulaca oleracea) Volunteer field pea (Pisum sativum)
Crofton weed (Ageratina adenophora) Small flowered mallow (Marshmallow) (Malva parviflora) Wattles, including Acacia aulacocarpa (A. decora, A. harpophylla, A. leiocalyx & A.salicina)
Deadnettle (Lamium amplexicaule) Spiny emex (Emex australis) Wild oats (Avena sterilis spp. ludoviciana) (Avena fatua)
Docks (Rumex spp.) St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) Wireweed (Polygonum aviculare)
Fireweed (Senecio madagascariensis) Thistles, including Spear thistle (Cirsium vulgare)
Flax-leaf fleabane (Conyza bonariensis) Variegated thistle (Silybum marianum)

Where can Shotup Herbicide be used;

  • Agricultural Non-Crop Areas
  • Cereal Crops including Barley, Oats, Triticale & Wheat
  • Commercial Areas including Outdoors, Industrial Land Or areas, Pasture & Rights Of Way
  • Fallow Land
  • Forest

Shotup Herbicide for Fireweed Control;

Shotup Herbicide gives very good control of fireweed and associated weeds such as thistles.  It is registered for boom application at 1.5 L/ha and spot spray at 500mL per 100L Water.  It should be used in predominantly grass-based pastures. Both Kikuyu and couch grass may see transitory yellowing from Shotup Herbicide.  Follow up the treatment with a high volume spot spraying with Grazon Extra Herbicide or Shoup depending on the other weeds present.

When small infestations of fireweed are identified, act immediately to prevent the situation from becoming worse and to increase the likelihood of containment, by spot spraying. Early detection and removal of Fireweed is vital. Seed is long-lived in the soil and is produced in large quantities, so prevention of seeding is important. Continued vigilance for new outbreaks is required to prevent the establishment of the weed.

Shotup Herbicide for Lantana Control:

Lantana can be treated using Shotup Herbicide using a foliar spray application at a rate of 500 to 700 mL/100 L of water. This method can be used in any Australian state or territory.

The best time to treat for control of lantana is from December through to April, although if conditions allow treatment can be as early as October or as late as July. Lantana is a heavily branched shrub that can grow as compact clumps, dense thickets and as a scrambling and climbing vine. The stems are square with small, recurved prickles along the edges. The leaves are bright green above, paler beneath, about 6 cm long, with rounded, toothed edges. Leaves grow opposite one another along the stem. Flowers appear most of the year in clustered compact heads about 2.5 cm in diameter. Flower colours vary from pale cream to yellow, white, pink, orange, red, lilac and purple. Many lantana forms are poisonous to livestock. The toxic components in lantana include the triterpene acids, lantadene A (rehmannic acid), lantadene B and their reduced forms. Most cases of lantana poisoning occur in animals newly introduced into areas where toxic lantana grows. Animals bred in such country rarely show signs of poisoning.

Pack Sizes: 5-Litre & 20-Litre

Tips For Use

Restraints:

  • Do not apply to crops or weeds which are not actively growing or to plants that may be stressed (not actively growing) due to prolonged periods of extreme cold, moisture stress (water-logged or drought-affected) or previous herbicide treatment as crop damage or reduced levels of control, may result.
  • Do not spray if rain is likely to occur within one hour.
  • Avoid double overlaps to reduce the risk of injury to rotational crops the following season.
  • Do not apply by aerial application.

Minimum Recropping Periods:

  • 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. Refer to the directions for use that show plant-back periods for particular crops following application of Shotup Herbicide in different areas in Australia.

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

  • Do not use on land to be cultivated for growing susceptible crops for up to 20 months of applying Choice Shotup, except where indicated in the Minimum Recropping Periods section of the General Instructions. 
  • Legumes, vines, vegetables, cotton, tomatoes, ornamentals and many other plants are highly susceptible to this herbicide during both growing and dormant periods.
  • Cereal crops, canola and grasses can be sown safely after using Shotup Herbicide.
  • This product will kill legumes (clovers, medics) present in the crop at the time of spraying.
  • In the season, following the application of this product, the regeneration or establishment of sensitive legumes (clover, medics, peas, and lupins) may be adversely affected by soil residues.
  • Do not allow spray to drift onto sensitive native vegetation or susceptible crops, such as cotton, tomatoes, vines, fruit, potatoes, vegetables, ornamentals, tobacco, lupins and other legumes, safflower, sugar beet, hops, flowers or shade trees.
  • Do not use under meteorological conditions or with spraying equipment likely to produce drift.
  • Minimise spray drift by using low pressures and nozzles, which do not give a fine droplet size.
  • Do not apply close to or on areas containing roots of desirable vegetation, where the treated soil may be washed to areas growing, or to be planted to desirable plants, or on sites where surface water from heavy rain can be expected to run off to areas containing or to be planted to susceptible crops or plants.
  • Do not move soil, which may have been sprayed, 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 cut cereals intended for hay or silage production within 6 weeks of application, where it is intended for use off-farm.
  • Do not use treated plant material to make mushroom substrate.
  • Do not send straw from treated crops 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 crops treated within the previous 6 months (pasture) or 6 weeks (cereals) 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 crops treated within the previous 6 months (pasture) or 6 weeks (cereals) 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 crops treated within the previous 6 months (pasture) or 6 weeks (cereals) to susceptible plants or land to be used to grow susceptible plants.
  • Do not grow susceptible plants within the relevant plant back period in fields treated with manure/effluent from farms where animals have grazed or been fed treated plants until a field bioassay shows there are no residues in the soil at levels injurious to the susceptible plants (see the crop rotation section in the directions for use label).
  • 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.

Storage:

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