Sipcam - Herbicide

Product Information
Firebolt Herbicide is a non-volatile, non selective, water soluble liquid herbicide for the control of annual and perennial grasses and broadleaf weeds in a wide range of agricultural and non-agricultural use situations. Firebolt Herbicide may be used for weed control on agricultural land prior to sowing any edible or non edible crop but not prior to transplanting tomato seedlings. When applying this product prior to transplanting crops into plastic mulch, care much be taken to remove residues of this product from the plastic prior to transplanting. Residues can be removed by 2cm of natural rainfall or by applying water via a sprinkler irrigation system. Firebolt Herbicide is absorbed by plant foliage and green stems. It is inactivated in the soil and does not provide residual weed control. Firebolt Herbicide moves through the plant from the point of contact to and into the root system. Initial visible effects on annual weeds take 3-7 days but may not be noticeable for 2 to 3 weeks under cool cloudy conditions or on some perennial weeds.

Firebolt Herbicide mixes readily with water. Reduced results may occur if water is used containing; suspended clay or organic matter e.g. from dams, streams and irrigation channels, or high levels of calcium, magnesium or bicarbonate ions. Do not mix, store or apply this product in galvanized steel or unlined steel containers or spray tanks, since a highly flammable gas mixture may be formed. Use stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper, fibreglass, plastic or plastic lined containers or spray tanks. Spray tanks, pumps, lines and nozzles should be thoroughly rinsed with clean water following application. Ensure that the sprayer is free of any residues of previous spray materials prior to mixing. Use spray solutions promptly as a gradual loss of activity may occur over a period of days following spray preparation.
