GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG Herbicide is a pre-emergent herbicide which selectively kills plants and seedlings by absorption through the root system. Very little, if any, foliage absorption takes place. It works best when applied to bare, moist soil. If vegetation is present at spraying then a knockdown herbicide should be added. ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG is very insoluble in water and so usually remains in the top 5 cm of the soil. It is inactivated by absorption onto charcoal or other carbonaceous materials, muck solid or soils high in organic matter - higher rates are therefore required in these types of soil.
Araucaria, Corymbia, Eucalyptus and Pinus plantations: Field trials and use experience has indicated that the following species are tolerant. Test tolerance before treating other species.
Araucaria – all commercial species, Corymbia – maculata.
Eucalyptus – agglomerata, calophylla, camaldulensis, cladocalyx, cloeziana. dunnii, globulus, grandis, laevopinea, nitens, pilularis, pseudoglobulus, regnans, rudis, saligna, wandoo.
Pinus – caribaea and hybrids, elliottii, pinaster, radiata.

INTEGRATED WEED MANAGEMENT STRATEGY FOR TT CANOLA
The use of this product in TT canola is subject to an Integrated Weed Management Strategy for the use of triazine herbicides in TT canola
The Strategy encompasses:
- Integrated Weed Management;
- the specific management of crop plant volunteers and outcrossing to other plants; and
- triazine herbicide residue management (agronomic and environment) Compliance with registered label directions and adoption of the principles outlined in the Strategy will assist with implementation of crop management practices that minimise the development of herbicide resistance in treated weeds; reduce the levels of triazine residues in the environment; and manage volunteer plants and outcrossing.
Copies of the Strategy are available from a Adama Australia Pty Ltd representative or by contacting (02)94317800 It is advised that consultation be undertaken with an appropriate agronomist, consultant or Departmental adviser prior to the use of ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG Herbicide on TT Canola.
To minimise herbicide resistance:
- Avoid dry sowing in heavily weed infested paddocks. Wait for a weed germination after the opening rains in weedy paddocks. Use a pre-plant knockdown or cultivation. No weeds should be allowed to survive at this stage.
- Adapt the weed control program to the anticipated weed spectrum and pressure:
Broadleaf Weeds and Ryegrass: Use (simazine 500g/L) or (atrazine 500g/L) plus trifluralin pre- emergence. A follow-up with a Group A herbicide (if ryegrass is susceptible) or atrazine 500g/L may be necessary.
Broadleaf Weeds only: Use atrazine 500g/L post- emergence.
- DO NOT use atrazine 500g/L or simazine 500g/L if the area to be treated had a triazine herbicide applied to it last season.
Watch for escapes, especially in paddocks with a long history of Group C herbicide use.
- DO NOT use Group C herbicides in consecutive years.
To avoid Triazine carry-over:
On acid soils (pH less than 6.5) - The maximum rate of atrazine 500g/L or simazine 500g/L or a combination of the two products to be applied to the crop during the growing season is 4 L/ha.
On alkaline soils (pH greater than 6.5) - The maximum rate of atrazine 500g/L or simazine 500g/L or a combination of the two products to be applied to the crop during the growing season is 2 L/ha.
Post-emergence use - It is recommended that atrazine 500g/L only be used, and at rates of 2 L/ha or less, on both acid or alkaline soils.

RESISTANT WEEDS WARNING
ADAMA SIMANEX® 900 WG Herbicide is a member of the triazines group of herbicides. ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG has the inhibitor of photosynthesis at photosystem II mode of action. For weed resistance management ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG is a Group C herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG and other Group C 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 ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG or other Group C 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 ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG to control resistant weeds.

RESISTANT WEEDS REPORTING
Growers should collect plant or seed samples where weeds that are normally susceptible to atrazine and simazine may be resistant, get them tested and seek professional advice.

MIXING
This product mixes readily with water. No pre-mixing is required. Add the required quantity to the spray vat which should be 50-75% full. Re-seal part used container immediately. The agitation system should be running during addition of the product and during the spraying operation. If left to settle, stir/agitate thoroughly before spraying.

Method of application
ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG must be applied in a minimum of 50L/ha (WA only); 100L/ha (SA, Vic, Qld, NSW); 200L/ha (Tas only). Higher volumes of water are desirable as this usually increases the evenness and accuracy of application. It is most important not to exceed the rates recommended when using hand-held high volume sprayers. To ensure that this does not happen the following procedure should be adopted before spraying the chemical:
a) Fill spray tank or vat with water and mark the water level.
b) Spray 100m2 in a manner similar to the method to be used.
c) Fill the spray tank up to the mark measuring the amount of water to do this, for example, say 20 litres. Then multiply this amount of water by 100 to give the volume of water, ie. 2000 litres used per sprayed hectare. The recommended rate of ADAMA SIMANEX 900 WG per hectare is then added to each 2000 litres of water.
d) At the end of the Directions for Use table rates are given as a guide to the amounts usually applied by knapsack and power sprayers. These should only be used when calibration is not feasible.

TT-Canola: Application
DO NOT apply to TT-canola by aircraft. Apply only with a low boom sprayer with a 60 m buffer zone downwind of treated fields to natural or impounded lakes or dams, and a 20 m buffer zone for any well, sink hole, intermittent or perennial stream. Apply only to areas where run-off is unlikely to occur or where run-off may be captured by farm earthworks. Incorporation (Pre-plant and At Sowing application) This product acts mainly by root absorption. Its effectiveness depends on the occurrence of rainfall or irrigation to move it down into the weed root zone. Sufficient rain or irrigation to thoroughly wet the soil through the weed root zone should occur or be made immediately after application to provide appropriate weed control. Delay in activation of the product may result in some weed growth.
In flood or furrow irrigation situations complete and continued activation of the product may not occur due to a thin band of dry soil on the surface during or after irrigation. Mechanical incorporation after application, using light harrows to incorporate the product into the soil not more than 4 cm deep is required to ensure the irrigation water activates the product. Always apply the product to an even unridged seedbed.

Timing of spray
Apply to tolerant established plants as given in directions for use table after the soil has been freshly cultivated or chipped and while it is still bare and preferably when the soil surface is moist. For newly planted crops such as gladioli, apply after planting when the soil is freshly cultivated and moist.

Activation
On horticultural crops, if sufficient rain to thoroughly wet the soil through the weed zone has not fallen within 14 days of application, water in with the equivalent of 10 mm of rain. If applied under dry conditions and irrigation is not available, mechanical incorporation to a depth of not more than 4 cm within 7 days of sowing may assist results.
