475g/L2,4-D(present as dimethylamine and diethanolamine salts)
Domestic Use |
||For the control of emerged broadleafed weeds prior to sowing crops and pastures in conservation tillage situations and for selective weed control in crops and situations as per directions for use table.
Formulated for use with glyphosate products.
This is a PHENOXY HERBICIDE that can cause severe damage to susceptible crops such as cotton, grapes, tomatoes, oilseed crops and ornamentals.
DO NOT spray if rain seems likely within 6 hours or if strong winds prevail.
DO NOT apply if crop or weeds are stressed due to dry or excessively moist conditions.
DO NOT use when breeze is blowing towards nearby susceptible plants.
Plant Back Periods
TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide is a water soluble liquid product with non-selective herbicidal activity against broadleaf weeds. TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide will control emerged weeds only, and provides no residual control although certain plant back periods should be observed. TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide is absorbed by plant foliage and accumulates to toxic levels in the regions of growth and reproduction, upsetting the ability of plants to balance the synthesis and use of nutrients. Visible effects are a gradual yellowing and wilting of the plants which advances to complete browning of above ground growth and deterioration of root systems. Effects may not be apparent for 7-10 days or even up to 21 days under cold or cloudy conditions.
DO NOT treat weeds under poor growing or dormant conditions such as occur in drought, water-logging, disease, insect damage, following frost, weeds heavily covered with dust or silt.
Reduced results may also occur if weeds are under stress from previous herbicide application. Rainfall occurring up to 6 hours after application may reduce effectiveness. DO NOT spray if strong winds prevail.
TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide is recommended as a herbicide additive to glyphosate for control of emerged weeds prior to crop establishment. When TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide is applied prior to crop establishment certain Plant Back Periods should be observed to ensure that the herbicide has degraded sufficiently to allow safe sowing of the intended crop. This process is largely influenced by moisture, temperature and certain soil characteristics and may be delayed particularly when conditions are cold and dry. Refer to the Plant Back Period table for specific information. In seasons of heavy weed growth, or where the following conditions apply, it may be necessary to further delay sowing until a suitable seedbed can be formed. Conditions which can delay crop germination and seedling development include:
- Heavy green or decaying weed growth incorporated into the soil;
- Soil compaction or crusting;
- Cold and wet soils;
- Deep seeding;
- Prior use of residual or pre-emergent herbicides.
To minimise these effects it is suggested that:
- Weed bulk be reduced by grazing and cultivating to leave trash on the surface to dry out;
- A friable seedbed be produced by cultivation, where necessary;
- The use of pre-emergent herbicides to be avoided if they might contribute to reduce germination;
- A correct seeding depth be used.
The preferred alternative is to spray early to control any weeds in their less advanced stages and ensure the seedbed is in a suitable condition for early sowing when soil temperatures are not excessively cold.
SPRAY APPLICATIONS AND DRIFT RISK ASSESSMENT
USE ONLY when wind speed is more than 3 kilometres per hour or less that 15 km/hr as measured at the application site.
USE ONLY coarse to very coarse spray quality according to the ASAE S572 definition for standard nozzles.
- Have you cleaned/decontaminated your boom sprayer?
- Have you contacted your neighbour prior to spraying?
- Is your sprayer set-up correctly for the particular application?
- Check - boom calibration - at nozzle - nozzle choice - low drift/what spray quality-coarse to very coarse droplet? - boom height - speed of intended application
- You must check, determine and record the weather conditions immediately prior to and immediately after the spray application is made
- Record - temperatures - relative humidity - Delta T - Wind speed (min 3 km/hr, max 15 km/hr) - is there a temperature inversion
- Night spraying - extra care is required to ensure that inversion conditions are not present. Use smoke generator to determine wind direction and presence of inversion conditions.
Boom Equipment: Application of TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide/glyphosate mixtures in spray volumes of 25-100L/ha is recommended. When chlorsulfuron or metsulfuron-methyl herbicides are included in the mixture a minimum spray volume of 30L/ha is recommended. When Simazine is included in the mixture a minimum spray volume of 100L/ha is recommended. USE ONLY coarse to very coarse spray according to the ASAE S572 definition for standard nozzles. Boom height must be set to ensure double overlap of nozzle patterns at the top of the weed canopy.
Aerial Equipment: Application of TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide/glyphosate mixtures using either Micronair or boom equipment should occur in a minimum spray volume of 15L/ha. USE ONLY when wind speed is more than 3 kilometres per hour or less than 15km/h, as measured at the application site. USE ONLY coarse to very coarse spray according to the ASAE S572 definition for standard nozzles. Swath width should be 15-17 metres.
Application under hot conditions: High temperature and/or low relative humidity cause excessive evaporation of spray droplets which may reduce results. When temperatures reach 25 degrees C increase water volume to 30L/ha and increase droplet size to at least 300 micron diameter. DO NOT apply by aircraft when temperature is above 35 degreesC. DO NOT use in intensive horticultural cropping areas. Thoroughly wash aircraft, especially landing g ear after each day of spraying to remove herbicide residues.
Spray solutions of TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide and glyphosate should be mixed, stored and applied only in stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper, fibreglass, plastic-lined containers. DO NOT mix, store or apply spray solutions in galvanised steel or unlined steel (except stainless steel) containers or spray tanks. TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide/glyphosate spray solutions may react with such containers and tanks to produce hydrogen gas which may form a highly combustible gas mixture that can flash or explode if ignited by open flame, spark, welder?s torch, lighted cigarette or other ignition source. Thoroughly clean all equipment after use either by using hot soapy water or 1% solution of ammonia followed by several clean water rinses or use a proprietary cleaner such as Spraymate Tank & Equipment Cleaner.
If using Sulfonylurea herbicides such as chlorsulfuron or metsulfuron-methyl follow decontamination procedures detailed on those product labels.
TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide is compatible in tank mixes with atrazine, chlorsulfuron, dicamba, dimethoate, glyphosate, Lorsban* 500EC, metsulfuronmethyl/ omethoate, paraquat/diquat (e.g. Spray.Seed*), phosmet and simazine.
1. As formulations of other manufacturers' products are beyond the control of TITAN AG all mixtures should be tested on a small scale before mixing in the spray tank.
2. Tank mixing instructions: Fill the spray tank 1/4 full of water and agitate. Add wettable powders and water dispersible granules first. Agitate until these are uniformly dispersed, meanwhile adding water until the tank is 90% full. Add suspension concentrates (flowables) then soluble concentrates. Emulsifiable concentrates go in last. Top off the tank with water and continue agitation until all the ingredients are properly mixed.
Observe any mixing sequence instructions mentioned on the tank mix products.
Use of Surfactant / Wetting Agent
DO NOT add surfactant except for Conservation Tillage where the product is to be tank-mixed with a glyphosate product. In this situation always add either a non-ionic surfactant (900g/L) such as Spraymate* Activator, or an acidifying surfactant such as Spraymate LI-700 in accordance with label directions on the glyphosate product. Use an acidifying surfactant such as Spraymate LI-700 with glyphosate if insecticides will be included in the tank mixture or if faster brownout of weeds is required.
DO NOT mix with spraying oils, or any other materials or agricultural chemicals except as directed on this label. DO NOT use an acidifying surfactant such as Spraymate LI-700 if sulfonylurea herbicides (chlorsulfuron or metsulfuronmethyl) are included in the spray mixture.
Tank Mixing Instructions
The TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide Directions for Use on this label are designed to be used as a tank mixture with glyphosate herbicides. However as shown in the compatibility and surfactant addition sections of this label, it is possible to extend/improve weed control to include other foliage applied and/or residual herbicides and adjuvants. A mixture of TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide and glyphosate may be tank mixed with the following herbicides, insecticides and adjuvants where recommended in the Directions for Use tables.
Read and follow all label Directions, Restraints and Plant Back Periods, withholding periods and Safety Directions for the tank mix products.
Dicamba - For improved control of Sow Thistle. Observe any regional use restrictions.
Chlorsulfuron - Will provide control for a wide range of broadleaf weeds and grasses.
Metsulfuron-methyl - For improved knockdown control of Yellow Burrweed (Amsinckia), Volunteer Chickpeas, Chickweed, Common Sowthistle, Cut-leaf Mignonette, Deadnettle, Faba Beans, Mallee Catchfly, Soursob, Stagger Weed, Wild Garlic.
Chlorsulfuron herbicides do not provide residual in-crop weed control.
Dimethoate, Lorsban 500EC, omethoate and phosmet can be introduced into the tank mix for specific control to prevent insect damage to emerging crops.
TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide mixes readily with water. Ensure the spray tank is free of any residue of previous spray materials.
1. Fill the spray tank with clean water to one half of the required amount and start agitation. DO NOT use mechanical agitators as these may cause excessive foaming when herbicides are added.
2. Where an acidifying surfactant such as Spraymate LI-700 is recommended at either 100mL or 300mL/100L, add to tank through top mesh screen.
3. Add recommended herbicide additive/insecticide to the spray tank and mix thoroughly.
4. Add TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide and mix thoroughly.
5. Top up tank to 95% of desired capacity then add the glyphosate product and the remaining water.
6. When a non-ionic surfactant is used, add near the end of the filling process to minimise foaming.
7. Always maintain adequate agitation during application and use the tank mix promptly.
Resistant Weeds Warning
TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide is a member of the Phenoxys group of herbicides. TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide has the disruptors of plant cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance management of TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide is a Group I herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide and other Group I herbicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any weed population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide or other Group I herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, TITAN AG Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of TITAN Amine 475 Herbicide to control resistant weeds.
Protection of Crops, Native and Other Non-target Plants
Drift Warning: DO NOT use unless wind speed is more than 3 kilometres per hour and less than 15 kilometres per hour as measured at the application site.
DO NOT apply with smaller than coarse to very coarse spray droplets according to the ASAE S572 definition for standard nozzles.
Direct spray contact or even slight drift may cause severe injury or destruction of any susceptible crop or other desirable plants including trees and native vegetation.
DO NOT use when breeze is blowing towards nearby susceptible plants.
DO NOT apply under meteorological conditions or from spraying equipment that may cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants, adjacent crops, crop lands or pastures.
Equipment settings which produce fine droplets (150 microns or less), 'still air' and hot dry days may all contribute to drift.
This is a phenoxy herbicide that can cause severe damage to susceptible crops such as cotton, tobacco, tomatoes, flowers, vegetables, vines, fruit trees, legume crops and pastures, oil seed crops or other susceptible crops and trees (eg Kurrajongs, Belahs, Eucalypts)
