Crop Smart - Herbicide

Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide is a member of the cyclohexanedione group of herbicides. Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide has the inhibitor of acetyl coA carboxylase mode of action. For weed resistance management Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide is a Group A Herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Smart Clethodim 240EC herbicide and other Group A 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 Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide or other Group A Herbicides.
Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Crop Smart Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide to control resistant weeds.


Before using SMART Clethodim 240EC Ensure that the recommended clean-out procedure for the previous product (particularly sulfonylurea herbicides) sprayed with the equipment was done properly.
After using SMART Clethodim 240EC Empty the tank and drain the whole system.
Thoroughly wash inside of the tank using a pressure hose, drain the tank and clean all filters in the tank, pump line and nozzles.
Use of a household detergent will aid in cleaning the equipment. Add detergent to the part- filled spray tank and thoroughly circulate through pumps, hoses and nozzles. Drain the system and thoroughly rinse twice with clean water.
Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area, or if this is unavailable, onto unused land away from desirable plants and water sources.

To ensure even mixing, half-fill the spray tank with clean water and add the required amount of product.
Add spray additive and agitate thoroughly, then add the remainder of the water. Agitate again before spraying commences.

Ground Application
Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide should be applied with calibrated spray equipment producing a median droplet range of 200 to 300 microns VMD. Apply in a minimum of 50 litres of water per hectare. Use 150 L/ha when spraying dense populations.
Aerial Application
Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide can be applied through aircraft fitted with boom or Micronair equipment.
A spray volume of 20 to 30 L/ha is recommended and equipment should be adjusted to deliver droplets in the range of 200 to 250 microns VMD.
Best results will be obtained when aerial applications are made in a light crosswind. Applications should not be made during temperature inversions or in conditions of very low relative humidity. Care should be taken to avoid drift damage to adjoining grass crops.

Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide is compatible with the following grass herbicides: Targa*, Fusilade*, Verdict*, Sertin* and Correct* (Refer to the Bayer Correct label for detail on adjuvant recommendations for that product).
NOTE: in all situations where Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide is mixed with another grass herbicide, Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide should be used at the full label rate specified for target weed species.
Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide may also be applied in tank mixtures with one of the following products:
Sumi-Alpha* 50 EC, Sumi-Alpha* Dual, Apha-cypermethrin 100 Insecticide and Le-Mat*.
Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide should not be applied in a tank mix with Brodal*, Basagran* or Blazer.
Apply as separate applications.
For information on compatibility of products not listed, please refer to Crop Smart Pty Ltd.

Ornamentals and Trees – While Smart Clethodim 240EC Herbicide is generally selective to broadleaved plants (i.e. it is active against grasses), tests should always be made on a smaller number of plants not previously tested.
DO NOT use on Gymnosperms (pines, conifers, etc) unless a prior test has been conducted to check safety on the relevant species.
