CLOMAZONE 480G/L EC is a group code F 3 herbicide. Any population of a specific weed
may contain individuals which have a natural resistance against CLOMAZONE 480G/L EC or other group herbicides. If these herbicides are used repeatedly
the resistant individuals can eventually dominate the weed
population. These resistant weeds will probably not be controlled
by CLOMAZONE 480G/L EC or any other group code F 3 herbicide. To delay the occurrence of
resistance the following can be done:
1) Avoid the repeated exclusive use of herbicides in the same group
code. Alternate with or tank mix with herbicides from other group
2) Integrate with other methods of control (chemical, biological
and cultural) in weed control programmes For specific information
regarding the management of resistance contact the registration
holder of this product.
· Phytotoxic symptoms may occur because seedlings do not always
undergo a period of wilting
· A temporary yellowing of the sand leaves of the tobacco plants
· Phytotoxic symptoms may occur on adjacent crops, trees and shrubs
as a result of spray drift or
volatility of the product. To prevent spray drift, use the
appropriate nozzle size to deliver the
desired spray volume at the lowest spray pressure, do not spray
when the wind speed > 15 km/h, do not mount spray booms too high
and, most importantly, do not apply CLOMAZONE 480G/L EC within 300 m of non-target crops or neighbouring shrubbery. To
prevent volatilization, monitor
temperature, humidity and soil moisture.
Waiting Periods for Follow-on Crops: (from last application to planting of follow-on crop)
Cabbage, Cucurbits, Oats, Onion and Peas
Maize, Sweetcorn, Wheat and grass lays
· A deep soil cultivation prior to planting will reduce the
potential risk of carry-over to the followon
