Turf

Re-entry Period

  • General Public: DO NOT allow public access to treated areas until the spray has dried.
  • Grounds Staff / Professional Operators: Low exposure activities: DO NOT undertake low exposure occupational re-entry activities such as irrigation and mowing on treated turf until the spray had dried.
  • High exposure activities: DO NOT undertake high exposure occupation re-entry activities such as hand weeding or transplanting of turf until 15 days after application, unless wearing cotton overalls and elbow length chemical resistant gloves.

Precautionary Statements

  • This product is a registered agricultural chemical and must, therefore, be used in accordance with the container label directions.
  • Each user should read this SDS and consider the information in the context of how the product will be handled and used in the workplace including in conjunction with other products.
  • FIRST AID: If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone 131 126.

Personal Protective Equipment

  • Harmful if swallowed or inhaled. Will irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. DO NOT inhale spray mist. When opening the container, mixing and loading the spray and using the prepared spray wear: - cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) - elbow length chemical resistant gloves - disposable mist face mask covering mouth and nose When using the prepared spray by low pressure hand wand wear: - cotton overalls over normal clothing, buttoned to the neck and wrist - elbow length chemical resistant gloves - disposable mist face mask covering mouth and nose Wash hands after use. After each day’s use, wash gloves and contaminated clothing.

Tank mixing

Add the required amount of HIGRAN to clean water in half filled spray tank with the agitator or bypass in operation. Maintain agitation while filling tank with remainder of water. Agitation must also be maintained
throughout the spray operation.
Non-ionic Surfactants: The addition of a non-ionic surfactant at a rate of 0.25% v/v (1000 g ai/L products) or 0.42% v/v (600 g ai/L products) such as Agral is essential.

Mixing and spraying

Apply by ground boom sprayer, low pressure hand wand or hand gun sprayer.
To be effective HIGRAN requires thorough spray coverage. Ensure that equipment is properly calibrated to give an even distribution at the correct volume. Application volume should be adequate to ensure thorough and even coverage of turf leaves with penetration into the crowns.

Water volume

Total application volume should be 300 to 500 L/ha. Use coarse droplets (eg Air Induction flat fan 025 to 04 nozzles). In higher cut turf (>15 mm) a significant spray shielding effect can occur, impacting negatively on spray penetration and even coverage at low application volumes.

  • In a transport emergency dial 000, Police or Fire Brigade.
