General Instructions

General Information

PULSAR is a selective herbicide with contact and systemic activity for the control of a wide range of broadleaf weeds in cereals, clover, new pasture and peas. PULSAR must be applied with sufficient water to ensure that all parts of target weeds are thoroughly covered. PULSAR is not active in the soil, so weeds must have germinated before spraying (post emergence).

Beware

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

Direction for Use

NOTES:

  1. Use high water rates (minimum specified) to ensure that all plant parts are thoroughly covered. Low volume CDA application techniques are not recommended.
  2. Best results are obtained from applications made after the onset of a prolonged period (more than 3 days) of warm, humid weather.
  3. Best results are obtained if applications are made to immature weeds (2-4 leaves) rather then more mature plants.

Application

Use high water rates (minimum rates specified). Low volume CDA application techniques are not recommended. Best results are obtained from applications made after the onset of a prolonged period (more than 3 days) of warm, humid weather. Best results are obtained if applications are made to immature weeds (2-4 leaf) rather than more mature plants.

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

Wetting agent should not be added unless specified. Do not apply PULSAR with any other crop protection agent or fertiliser.

Rainfall

At least 8 hours should elapse after application before rainfall or irrigation.

Warning

After treatment poisonous plants may become palatable and livestock should be kept out of the area until plants have died down.

Handling

Do NOT apply if rain or frost is expected, nor if the foliage is wet.

Do NOT spray during periods of drought or unseasonably cold weather as unsatisfactory weed control may result.

Spillage

If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting. For advice, contact the National Poisons Centre 0800 POISONS (0800 764 766) or a doctor immediately. If skin or hair contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and flush skin and hair with running water. Do not scrub the skin. If splashed in eyes, wash out immediately with water

Personal Protection

General Safety and Hygiene Measures

Use

Apply with well-maintained and accurately calibrated spray equipment. Do NOT spray over, or allow drift over, an aquatic environment. Do NOT allow spray drift outside the target area to occur. Clean out application equipment thoroughly after use. Do NOT contaminate water when disposing of equipment wash waters.

Note

Storage and application must be as described in the current version of the New Zealand Standard for the Management of Agrichemicals NZS8409.
