GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING
SAFARI® 600EC Herbicide is a member of the pyridines group of herbicides. The product has the disruptors of plant cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance management, the product is a Group I herbicide.
Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other Group I 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 SAFARI 600EC or Group I 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 SAFARI 600EC to control resistant weeds. Strategies to minimise the risk of herbicide resistance are available. Contact your farm chemical supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture, or local Adama representative.

COMPATIBILITY
Fallow Situations
SAFARI 600EC is compatible with the following products: LV Ester 600 (2,4-D ester), Adama 2,4-D amine 625 (2,4-D amine), Zulu® 300 (2,4-D isopropylamine), Flagship® 200, glyphosate, Lontrel*, Starane* 200, Wipe-Out® 450, Wipe-Out® Plus, Victory® and Strike-Out® 500EC Insecticide. When mixing with Wipe-Out 450 or Wipe-Out Plus refer to the Wipe-Out label for use rate and adjuvants recommended.
DO NOT use Uptake* Spraying Oil or DC Trate* Crop Oil.
Sorghum
SAFARI 600EC is compatible with Flagship® 200, Starane* 200, Farmozine® 500 SC (atrazine flowable products only).

MINIMUM RE-CROPPING PERIODS
Before using SAFARI 600EC in tank mixes with other herbicides, check the plant-back information on all product labels. The time between spraying and planting will be determined by the product with the longest plant-back period.
Observe the following RE-CROPPING periods for SAFARI 600EC:
- Wheat, barley, sorghum, maize 7 days
- Chickpeas, soybeans, sunflowers 7 days
- Cotton 14 days

MIXING
Half fill the spray unit with water and add the required amount of SAFARI 600EC. Add the remaining water with the agitator running. If required, then add crop oils or wetters (surfactants). Maintain mechanical or by-pass agitation in the spray tank during spraying. Only mix sufficient solution for immediate daily use and avoid storing.
Basal Bark and Cut Stump Application: Quarter fill the spray unit or mixing container with diesel and add the required amount of SAFARI 600EC. Add the remaining diesel and shake or agitate thoroughly to mix the contents. Periodically shake or agitate to stop product settling out. Only mix sufficient solution for immediate daily use and avoid storing.

Application
1. WOODY WEED SITUATIONS
Weeds need to be actively growing for herbicides to have optimum effect. Delay treatment until all regrowth has had time to grow to one metre high in situations which have been bulldozed, slashed, burnt, ploughed or areas having a previous chemical treatment.
A. High Volume Spraying: Thorough coverage of foliage and stems to the point of run-off is essential, however, avoid excess spraying which is wasteful of chemical. Hand Gun: Apply the recommended mix to give full coverage of leaves and stems through a No. 6 to 8 tip at 700 to 1500 kPa. A spray volume of 3,000 to 4,000 L per infested hectare (30 to 40 L/100m2) should be used on the weed infestation. Knapsack: Used for small infestations, where penetration of the canopy is not essential. A spray volume of 3 to 4 L/10 m2 of infested area should be used.
B. Aerial Application
Apply in 100 to 200 L water/ha. Use a calibrated aircraft to apply in half overlap passes. Nozzle configurations should produce droplets of not less than 250 to 350 micron diameter (e.g. D8/45). The potential for damage from drift can be greatly reduced by avoiding unsuitable spraying conditions and using spray pressure and nozzles to minimise the production of small droplets. DO NOT spray when wind exceeds 10 km/hr and/or air temperature reaches 30°C.
C. Controlled Droplet Application (C.D.A.)
Results similar to high volume spraying can be obtained using Micron Herbi* or similar equipment. Select a nozzle to give a flow rate of 2 mL/sec and sweeping action of approximately 1 m/sec to ensure a droplet density of 20/cm2. Use a marking agent as recommended by the equipment manufacturers, to check spray coverage. Also, consult directions provided with C.D.A. unit.
D. Low Volume High Concentrate Application Techniques: Good control will be achieved, similar to high volume application, where bush size enables good coverage of the bush. Use a marking agent, as recommended by the equipment manufacturers, to check spray coverage.
Gas powered gun: Apply 50 mL shots to obtain uniform coverage of 4 to 5 m2 of surface area of bush. This relates to 20 droplets/cm2 of leaf surface.
Sprinkler sprayer: This technique involves using a micro sprinkler which is connected to a hollow fibre glass rod attached to a pressure knapsack sprayer. Use at low pressures (50 to 200 kPa) and apply with a slow sweeping action over the top of the plants ensuring even coverage on the leaves.
E. Basal Bark and Cut Stump Treatment: Mix SAFARI 600EC in diesel. The use of diesel as a herbicide carrier may affect the rubber seals in some sprayers. To avoid this, use sprayers which use Viton* seals and fittings.
Basal Bark Method: DO NOT apply to wet stems as this can repel the diesel mixture. Apply only with hand-directed equipment such as a pressure sprayer or a paint brush. Spray equipment should be used at low pressures, up to 200 kPa, to avoid excessive splashing or drift. Species with old, rough bark require more thorough wetting than smooth barked species. Liberally spray or paint the bark around the stem from ground level up to 30 cm high, wetting thoroughly to the point of run-off (unless otherwise stated).
Cut Stump Method: Stems should be cut less than 15 cm above the ground. Immediately apply SAFARI 600EC diesel mixture liberally to the freshly cut stump by spray or painting the cut surface and sides of the stem.

2. CROPPING/FALLOW SITUATIONS
A. Boom Application
Application of SAFARI 600EC in a minimum spray volume of 50 L/ha is recommended. Flat fan nozzles are recommended, using pressures in the range of 200-300 kPa. Boom height must be set to ensure double overlap of nozzle patterns.
B. Aerial Application
DO NOT allow SAFARI 600EC to physically drift onto desirable plants. Aircraft may be used to apply SAFARI 600EC in fallow situations, when ground application equipment cannot be used due to prolonged wet conditions. A minimum spray volume of 35 L/ha should be used with flat fan and CP nozzle configurations. DO NOT apply SAFARI 600EC by aircraft when wind exceeds 10 km/hr and/or air temperature reaches 30°C. Droplets with an average size (or Volume Mean Diameter) of 250 to 350 micron diameter are recommended.

CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT
Water-Based Cleaning
Rinsing: After using SAFARI 600EC, empty the spray unit complete lyand drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the spray unit using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any filters in the tank, pump, lines, hoses and nozzles. After cleaning the spray unit as above, quarter fill with clean water and circulate through the pump, lines, hoses and nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.
Decontamination: Before spraying cotton and other sensitive crops, with equipment that has been used to apply SAFARI 600EC, see Protection of Crops, Native and Other Non-Target Plants section. Wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Then quarter fill the tank and add an alkali detergent (e.g. liquid SURF*, OMO*, DRIVE* at 500 mL/100 L of water or the powder equivalent at 500 g/100 L of water) and circulate throughout the system for at least 15 minutes. Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean them separately. Finally, flush the system with clean water and allow to drain. Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area or, if this is unavailable, onto unused land away from desirable plants and water courses.

Diesel-Based Cleaning
Rinsing: After using SAFARI 600EC, empty the spray unit completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the spray unit using a pressure hose. Drain the spray unit and clean any filters in the tank, pump, lines, hoses and nozzles. On completion of spraying, use a degreaser such as Caltex Kwik-D-Grease* to remove traces of diesel from the sprayer. Rinse tank and spray through the nozzles with water to remove degreaser.
Decontamination: After the above, quarter fill the tank with clean water and add an alkali detergent (e.g. liquid SURF*, OMO*, OMOMATIC*, DRIVE* at 50 mL/ 10 L of water or the powder equivalent at 50 g/10 L of water). Shake or operate spray to circulate the washing solution throughout the sprayer and spray the solution through the nozzle. Rinse well with clean water to remove detergent. To clean brushes and container, spray liberally with degreaser. Hose off thoroughly with clean water and repeat using detergents (see above). DO NOT use this equipment for any purpose.
