ARSENAL Xpress is an aqueous formulation of two active constituents which will kill a range of standing weeds and emerging seedlings. It stops growth rapidly, although symptoms may take over 30 days to develop. Affected plants are discoloured and often growth is distorted.
The active material in ARSENAL Xpress is rapidly absorbed through foliage and translocated throughout plants. The active ingredient providing residual control (imazapyr) is also rapidly absorbed through roots, and translocated throughout plants.
For pre-emergence control, rain or irrigation after spraying is required to activate ARSENAL Xpress.
Where indicated in the “Rate” column, “Pre- or post-emergence application”, foliage treatments will provide pre-emergence control as the active material is released to the soil following plant decay. Application should give 6 months effective weed control. Residual control will be reduced by denser standing weed growth and higher amounts of ground cover
Residual control of weeds, for which the lower rate of ARSENAL Xpress is recommended, will increase when the higher rate is used.
RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING
ARSENAL Xpress Herbicide is a member of the imidazolinone and glycine groups of herbicides. ARSENAL Xpress has the inhibition of acetolactate synthase (ALS) and inhibition of EPSP modes of action. For weed resistance management, ARSENAL Xpress is a Group B and M herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to ARSENAL Xpress and other Group B and M 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 ARSENAL Xpress or other Group B and M herbicides.
Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, BASF Australia Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of ARSENAL Xpress to control resistant weeds.
Faster control of standing weeds will result if growing conditions are favourable at and after application.
Rainfall within two hours of the spray mixture drying on leaves may result in reduced weed control.
For medium volume spraying, apply through a spray boom calibrated to ensure even coverage. Use spray nozzles suitable to prevent spray drift onto surrounding non-target vegetation.
For high volume application, use a hand gun or knapsack to apply sufficient spray to wet the surface visibly without producing run-off.
Pour the required amount of ARSENAL Xpress into a spray container which already holds the total amount of water required. Mix thoroughly. If ARSENAL Xpress is added during filling, foaming may occur. If excessive foaming is a problem, add a suitable antifoaming agent. Consult your distributor for specific information.
The product is corrosive to mild steel. Use ONLY stainless steel, fibreglass, plastic or plastic-lined containers for mixing, storage and application.
Thoroughly flush all spray equipment with water following the use of ARSENAL Xpress and before use with other products.
For faster knockdown of weeds, certain other herbicides may be mixed with ARSENAL Xpress Herbicide.
ARSENAL Xpress is compatible with glyphosate-based products.
Bipyridyl herbicides (eg. paraquat) are NOT compatible with ARSENAL Xpress. Mixtures of this type will result in poor weed control.
