General Instructions

Beware

APPLY THIS PRODUCT CAREFULLY. SPRAY DRIFT MAY CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE TO OTHER DESIRABLE PLANTS.

General Information

FRONTIER P is a selective pre-emergence herbicide recommended for weed control in maize, sweetcorn, squash, dwarf green beans, onions, and forage brassica. FRONTIER P is taken up by the shoots of emerging weed seedlings and provides 6-8 weeks residual control of many annual grasses and some broadleaf weeds.

Weeds controlled

Grasses: Barnyard grass, bristle grass, rough bristle grass, crowfoot grass, smooth witch grass and summer grass.

Broadleaf Weeds: Apple of Peru, black nightshade, seedling dock, redroot, spurrey, twincress, willow weed.

Fathen may be controlled on light soils (low CEC values) under ideal conditions.

Direction for Use

Remove domestic animals from the operating area. Apply with well-maintained and accurately calibrated equipment. Do NOT allow spray drift outside the target area to occur. Do NOT spray over, or allow drift over, surface water such as ponds, waterways or drains. Clean out application equipment thoroughly after use. Do NOT contaminate water when disposing of equipment wash waters.

Mixing

Add the required amount directly into the partly filled spray tank with agitation running. Complete filling and maintain agitation until spraying is complete.

Compatibility

FRONTIER P may be mixed with appropriate herbicide tank mix partners (e.g. atrazine, pendimethalin, MAGISTER or trifluralin depending on the crop).

Irrigation

At least 7.0 mm of moisture is required within 10 days of application to activate the herbicide.

Soil

Soil texture and organic matter content affect the rate requirement of FRONTIER P. Use the lower rate of the recommended rate range with soils that are relatively coarse textured or low in organic matter content. Use the higher rate of the range on soils that are relatively fine textured (high clay content), high in organic matter content, or in fields with severe weed infestations. Applications must be made before weed emergence onto fine, moist soil, free of trash or clods.

CEC values are a more precise measurement for determination of use rate. THESE ARE AVAILABLE ON MOST SOIL FERTILITY TEST RESULTS AND SHOW THE ABILITY OF THE SOIL TO LOCK UP NUTRIENTS AND HERBICIDES.

Handling

This product must be under the personal control of an APPROVED HANDLER when applied in a wide dispersive manner or by a commercial contractor.

Transport

Do NOT carry this product on a passenger service vehicle.

Spillage

Prevent any product from entering drains. Wear appropriate protective clothing. Absorb spill with an inert material (such as vermiculite, clay granules or synthetic absorbent) and place in a labelled, sealable container for disposal. Wash the spill area with water and detergent, then absorb the washings and place in the same sealable container. Dispose of the container in an approved landfill or under at least 50 cm of soil in a non-crop, non-pasture area away from water sources and homes.

Personal Protection

When mixing or applying, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist, washable hat, impervious gloves, and goggles.
