Active Ingredient: 500g/litre dicamba
Chemical Group: Benzoic acid
Formulation: Soluble concentrate
Dicamba is a high-strength dicamba formulation which offers highly cost-effective post-emergence broadleaf weed control in a range of crops.
DICAMBA 500SL can be applied with conventional boom and spot spraying equipment. To minimise the risk of spray drift, avoid using nozzle/pressure combinations that produce fine droplets. Do not exceed recommended use rates and avoid boom overlaps. Best results will be achieved by spraying when weeds are young, actively growing and before the 3-5 leaf stage (unless stated otherwise). Do not spray when weeds are under stress from drought, extreme cold or waterlogging. Do not spray outside recommended crop growth stages, otherwise crop damage may occur.
WEEDS CONTROLLED: Alligator weed, black medic, black nightshade, Californian thistle, cape weed, catsear, chamomiles, chickweed, cleavers, clovers, cornbind, cut leaved geranium, dandelion, docks, dove’s foot, fathen, fennel, field bindweed, fireweed, goat’s rue, greater bindweed, hawkbit, hemp nettle, hedge mustard, hemlock, inkweed, leafy spurge, mallows, mouse eared chickweed, Onehunga weed, nipplewort, pearlwort, pennyroyal, perennial sow thistle, prostrate amaranth, redroot (amaranth), ragwort, selfheal, shepherd’s purse, sheep’s sorrel, sow thistle, stinking mayweed, spiny emex, spurrey, thorn apple, vetches, wild onion, wild carrot, willow weed (redshank), wireweed, yarrow. WEEDS NOT CONTROLLED: fumitory, plantains, starweed, stone crop, speedwells.
CLOVER: DICAMBA 500SL injures clover and re-establishment of clover in pasture may be difficult for up to 2 months after spraying.
PLANTBACK PERIOD: Do not sow legume crops (clover, lucerne, lupins, peas) within 28 days of applying DICAMBA 500SL. Grass, cereals, maize and brassica crops do not require any plantback period.
CROP PRECAUTIONS: Do not spray undersown crops, pastures (except as a spot spray), peas, lucerne, grapes and ornamentals or where their roots might extend. Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying. Do not graze treated areas until the plants have died down. Do not graze treated areas or feed treated crops of threshings to livestock for two weeks after application.
