DESCRIPTION Mode of Action PERSIST 900EC® is a systemic, non-selective pre-emergence foliar acting herbicide for the control of Annual Grass Weeds Broadleaved Weeds and Perennial Weeds in Maize. When used as directed, it is absorbed through the green leaves and stems and translocated from treated vegetation ro underground roots, rhizomes or stolon of weeds. Visible effects on treated weeds appear within 7 Days -14 Days after spraying; a gradual wilting, reddening and then yellowing of the foliage, seen first on grass weeds, but takes longer to appear on broad leaved weeds.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE When weeds have a full emergence of healthy, actively growing green leaves at the time of application. Regrowth or fresh germination of difficult to control weeds may have to be resprayed. Note Allow one week for translocation of PERSIST 900EC® before any cultivation takes place for perennials; one day for annuals. Weather Conditions Rainfree period of at least 6Hours must follow spraying. DO NOT spray onto very wet weeds or weeds suffering from drought stress as reduced control may occur. DO NOT spray in windy conditions as drift onto desirable vegetation can cause severe injury or destruction. Use Limitations; DO NOT store or apply this product in galvanized or unlined mild steel (except stainless steel) containers or spray tanks. Overall Applications Where control of the entire swath with associated weed is required, overall spraying should be carried out with a conventional hydraulic sprayer in good order and properly calibrated. Spot Treatments Where Patches of weeds are to be treated, a knapsack sprayer may be applied ensuring that weed leaves are not sprayed to the point of run-off as this simply wastes the product Spot treatment of tall weeds can also be carried out by weed wipers.
