GROUP B HERBICIDE

For the control of various annual and perennial weeds in non-crop situations as per the Directions for Use table.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Restraint: DO NOT apply by AIRCRAFT as spray drift may cause damage to desirable surrounding species.

Situation: Around agricultural buildings and other farm non-crop situations,  commercial, industrial, and public service areas, rights of way and waste land, away from desirable vegetation.
Weed: Annual Ryegrass (Lolium rigidum), Barnyard Grass (Echinochloa crus-galli), Blady Grass (Imperata cylindrica), Buckbush (Salsola kali), Deadnettle (Lamium amplexicaule), Feathertop Rhodes Grass (Chloris virgata), Fleabane (Conyza canadensis),  Hexham Scent (Melilotus indicus), Liverseed Grass (Urochloa panicoides),London Rocket (Sisymbrium irio), Mayne’s Pest (Verbena tenuisecta), Medics (Medicago spp.), Mintweed (Salvia reflexa), Blackberry Nightshade (Solanum igrum), Paterson’s Curse (Echium plantagineum), Plains Grass (Stipa aristiglumis), Prairie Grass (Bromus unioloides), Prickly Lettuce (Lactuca serriola), Purple Top (Verbena bonariensis), Scented Top (Capillipedium spp.), Sedges (Cyperus spp.), Slender Celery (Apium leptophyllum), Sowthistle (Sonchus oleraceus), St Barnaby’s Thistle (Centaurea solstitialis), Summer Grasses (Digitaria spp.), Thornapples (Datura spp.), Turnip Weed (Rapistrum rugosum), Variegated Thistle (Silybum  arianum), Vasey Grass (Paspalum urvillei), Warrego Grass (Paspalidium jubiflorum), Wild Oats (Avena spp.), Wild Turnip (Brassica tournefortii), Wireweed (Polygonum aviculare)
State: All States
Rate: 4.17 L/Ha
Critical comments: Applications can be made pre- or postemergence.
Post-emergence applications also provide pre-emergence control.
Medium Volume: 4.17 L ROTARY MAX® should be applied using spray volumes ranging between 50 and 200 L/Ha.
High Volume: Apply sufficient spray to wet the surfaces visibly without producing run-off.
Measure how much spray is required to cover 10 m x 10 m.
Add ROTARY MAX® at the rate of 40 mL in this measured volume.
For pre-emergence control, rain or irrigation after spraying is required to activate ROTARY MAX®. Residual control will be reduced by denser standing weed growth and higher amounts of ground cover.

Weed: Bokhara Clover (Melilotus albus), Bracken (suppression only) (Pteridium esculentum), Capeweed (Arctotheca calendula), Couch (Cynodon dactylon), Docks (Rumex spp.), Johnson Grass (Sorghum halepense), Panics (suppression only) (Panicum spp.), Paspalum (Paspalum dilatatum), Queensland Bluegrass (Dichanthium sericeum), Stinging Nettle (Urtica incisa)
State: All States
Rate: 6.25 L/Ha
Critical comments: Applications can be made pre- or postemergence.
Post-emergence applications also provide pre-emergence control.
Medium Volume: 6.25 L ROTARY MAX® should be applied using spray volumes ranging between 50 and 200 L/Ha.
Apply sufficient spray to wet the surfaces visibly without producing run-off.
Measure how much spray is required to cover 10 m x 10 m.
Add ROTARY MAX® at the rate of 60 mL in this measured volume.
For pre-emergence control, rain or irrigation after spraying is required to activate ROTARY MAX®. Residual control will be reduced by denser standing weed growth and higher amounts of ground cover.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER, CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
ROTARY MAX® is an aqueous solution of herbicide 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 ROTARY MAX® is rapidly absorbed through foliage and roots, and translocated throughout plants.
Foliage treatments will provide pre-emergence control as the active material is released to the soil following plant decay.
Residual control of weeds, for which the lower rate of ROTARY MAX® is recommended, will increase when the higher rate is used.
For pre-emergence control, rain or irrigation after spraying is required to activate ROTARY MAX®. Residual control will be reduced by denser standing weed growth and higher amounts of ground cover.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING
ROTARY MAX® Herbicide is a member of the imidazolinone group of herbicides. ROTARY MAX® has the inhibition of acetolactate synthase (ALS) mode of action. For weed resistance management, ROTARY MAX® is a Group B herbicide. Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to ROTARY MAX® and other Group B 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 ROTARY MAX® or other Group B herbicides.
Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of ROTARY MAX® to control resistant weeds.

APPLICATION
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 pre-emergence control, rain or irrigation after spraying is required to activate ROTARY MAX®. Residual control will be reduced by denser standing weed growth and higher amounts of ground cover.

SPRAYING INSTRUCTIONS
For medium volume spraying, apply through a spray boom calibrated to ensure even coverage. Use spray nozzles suitable to prevent spray drift onto surrounding desirable vegetation.
For high volume application, use a hand gun or knapsack to apply sufficient spray to wet the surface visibly without producing run-off.

MIXING
Pour the required amount of ROTARY MAX® into a spray container which already holds the total amount of water required.
Mix thoroughly. If ROTARY MAX® is added during filling, foaming may occur. If excessive foaming is a problem, add a suitable antifoaming agent.
Consult your distributor for specific information.
ROTARY MAX® may be applied in hard or soft water. The product is corrosive to mild steel.
Use ONLY stainless steel, fibreglass, plastic or plastic lined containers for mixing, storage and application.

COMPATIBILITY
For faster knockdown of weeds, certain other herbicides may be mixed with ROTARY MAX®. Bipyridyl herbicides (eg. paraquat) are NOT compatible with ROTARY MAX®. Mixtures of this type will result in poor weed control.
