DUAL GOLD® Label Extension

New use patterns in fallow, sorghum and cotton, providing growers greater flexibility.

SUITABLE ACROSS A RANGE OF SOIL TYPES AND ENVIRONMENTS, DUAL GOLD GIVES GROWERS

  • FLEXIBLE crop rotation – short plant backs - don't let resistance dictate your crop rotation

  • FLEXIBLE timing - giving growers greater choice for optimum weed control

  • FLEXIBLE rate - split application in sorghum, providing extended residual control

NOW WITH MORE USE PATTERNS

The tried and trusted pre-emergent activity of DUAL GOLD now provides even greater opportunity for growers to
manage early in crop (sorghum and cotton) and in fallow weeds and defend against Glyphosate resistance.

 

SORGHUM (TREATED WITH CONCEP® II)

  • Pre-emergent - Apply 1 to 2 L/ha at or immediately after planting and before crops and weeds have germinated

  • Spilt application (Option 1): 1.0 to 1.5 L/ha up to four weeks prior to sowing, followed by 0.5 to 1.0 L/ha at or immediately after planting

  • Spilt application (Option 2): 1.0 to 1.5 L/ha at or immediately after planting, followed, within 4 to 6 weeks, by 0.5 to 1.0 L/ha post crop emergence (no later than 6-leaf crop growth)

 

COTTON

  • Apply only one application per crop, 1 L/ha

  • Pre-emergent - apply before, at, or immediately after, planting and before crops and weeds have germinated

  • Over the top or directed standalone spray

  • Over the top mixed with Roundup Ready Herbicide with Plantshield* or Weedmaster* DST*

FALLOW

  • Apply 1 to 2L/ha following crop harvest but not closer to planting the following crop than the period specified under CROP REPLANTING INTERVAL (see label)

  • Spilt Application - 1.0 to 1.5 L/ha pre-emergent to weeds at fallow establishment followed by 0.5 to 1.0 L/ha within 4 weeks

WHY USE DUAL GOLD

  • DUAL GOLD applied pre-emergence controls weeds before they compete with the crop, conserving moisture for the crop.

  • DUAL GOLD’s residual activity prevents competition from weeds during the critical early season of crop establishment.

  • Split application to Sorghum & fallow applications extends residual control activity without compromising crop safety.

  • DUAL GOLD’s flexibility makes it the perfect foundation partner for a comprehensive weed management programme that optimises yield.

  • DUAL GOLD helps manage resistance risks by keeping weed numbers low.

PLANT BACK INTERVALS

DO NOT plant crops other than broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbages, cauliflowers, cotton, maize, peanuts, soybeans, sunflowers, sweet corn, tobacco or CONCEP II treated sorghum within 6 months of application of DUAL GOLD.

CONCEP II SORGHUM SEED SAFENER MUST BE APPLIED FOR EACH SORGHUM USE PATTERN

  • CONCEP II is translocated into the plant from the soil solution (off the seed) where it increases capacity to break down S-metalochlor at a faster rate.

  • CONCEP II is supplied on seed at a rate that can adequately breakdown DUAL GOLD at rates of up to 2L/ha under optimum conditions. Most seed companies applying CONCEP II Seed Safener follow strict guidelines of seed quality and application.
