See Label.
NOTE: Before using Acclaim in tank mixes with other herbicides, check the plant-back information on all product labels. The time between spraying and planting will be determined by the most residual product, i.e. the product with the longest plant-back period.

Acclaim may be mixed with water or diesel. Mix only sufficient chemical for each day's use and avoid storing.
Mixing in Water: Half fill the spray tank with water and add the required quantity of Acclaim and complete filling. Agitate continuously to ensure thorough mixing before and during application.
Mixing in Diesel: Half fill the tank with diesel and add the required quantity of Acclaim. Add the remainder of the diesel and agitate or shake to mix contents.
Tank mixtures: Wettable powder or dry flowable formulations (e.g. water dispersible granules) should be added to the spray tank first, followed by suspension concentrates (flowables), water soluble salts and then emulsifiable concentrate formulations (Acclaim). Add spraying oils and surfactants (wetters) last.

Use of Surfactant
Use only Uptake Spraying Oil at the rate of 500 mL/100 L of spray mix. When using less than 100 L/ha spray volume, ensure a minimum of 250 mL/ha of Uptake is used, unless 1 L/100 L or 1 L/ha is specified.
Surfactants (wetters)
Use a 100% concentrate non-ionic surfactant such as Chemwet 1000 or BS1000 at 100 mL/100 L of spray mix where required. When mixed with Terbyne 750 WG Herbicide, always add Hasten at 500mL/100L water.

Acclaim is compatible with the herbicides listed. Follow any regional restrictions, and all directions and restrictions on the label, of any chemical mixed with Acclaim.

Where hard water cannot be avoided, the addition of CALGON water conditioning agent to the spray tank, at 100 g/100 L water, before adding any herbicide may improve compatibility.
Acclaim plus atrazine tank mixes must be agitated vigorously and continuously during mixing and application. After mixing DO NOT allow to stand without agitation. Ensure that the time from mixing to the end of application is not more than 2 hours. If settling out occurs re-suspension is difficult, even with vigorous agitation. Agitation using only the pump's by-pass is usually inadequate, particularly with larger tanks (more than 2000 L). Additional mechanical agitation will be necessary in large tanks, computer sprayers and mixing tanks. When additional surfactant is required, add a 100% concentrate non-ionic surfactant at 100 mL/100 L of spray mix. DO NOT use a spraying oil when tank mixing Acclaim and atrazine.
Terbyne 750 WG Herbicide can be applied to sorghum up to 5-7 leaf stage of the crop. When mixing with Terbyne 750 WG Herbicide, always add Hasten at 500mL/100L water.
Always use Uptake Spraying Oil with Acclaim + Topik 240 EC tank-mixes at 500 mL/100 L of spray mix with a minimum of 250 mL/ha. DO NOT mix Acclaim with Topik 240 EC if the grass weeds are not actively growing. Always use the maximum label rate of Topik 240 EC for the appropriate grass growth stage. DO NOT use Acclaim at more than 0.75 L/ha in tank mixes with Topik 240 EC.
When mixing Acclaim with Glyphosate 450 to control both grass and broadleaf weeds, refer to the Glyphosate 450 label for use rates and adjuvants recommended for the grasses. DO NOT use Glyphosate 450 at less than 1.2 L/ha in tank mixes with Acclaim, when barnyard grass, buttongrass, crowsfoot grass, native millet and liverseed grass are the target species.

Application Information
A. Ground application (Boom)
Apply Acclaim with an accurately calibrated boom sprayer, in at least 50 L/ha water (100-400 L/ha for sugar cane). Flat nozzles are recommended using pressures in the range 200 to 300 kPa. Set the boom at a height to ensure a double overlap of the nozzle patterns.
B. Ground directed application (Dropper nozzles)
To minimise crop effects, dropper nozzles should be used in sorghum when the crop is beyond the 8 leaf growth stage and in maize and sweet corn when the crop is beyond the 6 leaf growth stage. Adjust the nozzles to direct the spray into the base of the crop and away from the leaves and the growing point. See manufacturers directions for setting up and calibration of dropper nozzles.
C. Aerial application
Apply in a minimum volume of at least 35 L/ha water (60 L/ha in sugarcane). Use equipment calibrated to produce droplets with an average diameter (Volume Mean Diameter; VMD) of 250 - 350 microns. DO NOT apply when the temperature is above 30C, when there is no wind or when the wind is blowing toward susceptible crops. DO NOT use human flaggers unless they are protected by engineering controls such as enclosed cabs. WOODY WEED SITUATIONS
Weeds must be actively growing to attain optimal effect. Delay the treatment of regrowth following bulldozing, slashing, burning, ploughing or a previous chemical treatment until it has at least 1 metre of new, vigorous, growth. A. High Volume Application
Hand Gun
Apply the recommended mix to obtain full coverage of leaves and stems using a number 6 - 8 tip at 700 to 1500 kPa. To obtain good coverage, a spray volume of 1500 to 4000 L/ha (15 to 40 L/100m2) is required per infested hectare. Ensure thorough coverage to the point of runoff.
Knapsack sprayers may be used on smaller infestations where penetration and coverage of the canopy is easier to achieve. Use the same use rate and spray techniques as for handgun application.
B. Low Volume, High Concentrate Application
Drench Gun or Gas-Powered Gun
Apply the recommended mixture uniformly across the foliage by applying 50mL shots to cover 4 to 5 m2 of surface area of plant. This is approximately equivalent to 20 droplets per cm2 of the leaf surface. Use a marking agent as recommended by the equivalent manufacturer to check spray coverage.
C. Basal Bark and Cut Stump Application
Basal Bark
DO NOT apply to wet stems as this can repel the diesel mixture. Spray or paint the recommended mixture around the base of each stem from ground level to a height of at least 30 cm from the ground, wetting the bark to the point of runoff. Apply with a paint brush or a pressure sprayer with an approximate lance and solid cone nozzle. If using spray equipment use low pressures (<=200 kPa) sufficient to form a cone of spray. Old rough bark will require more spray than smooth or young thin bark.
Cut Stump
Apply the recommended mixture liberally to the freshly cut stump immediately after cutting. Apply by spraying or painting the cut surface and sides of the stump. Best results are obtained when the stems are cut less than 15 cm above the ground.

Sprayer Cleanup
Rinse water should be discharged onto a designated disposal area or, if this is unavailable, onto wasteland away from desirable plants and water courses.
Cleaning equipment after using water-based sprays:
Rinsing: After using Acclaim Herbicide, empty the tank completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the spray unit using a pressure hose. Drain and clean any filters in the tank, pump, lines, hoses and nozzles. After cleaning the tank as above, quarter fill the clean water and circulate through the pump, lines and nozzles. Drain and repeat the rinsing procedure twice.
Decontamination (before spraying cotton and other sensitive crops; see PROTECTION OF CROPS): Wash the tank and rinse the system as above. Then quarter fill the tank and add an alkali detergent (e.g. liquid SURF, OMO, DRIVE) at 500 mL/100L of water or the powder equivalent at 500 g/100 L and circulate throughout the system for at last fifteen minutes. Drain the whole system. Remove filters and nozzles and clean them separately. Finally flush the system with clean water and allow to drain.
Cleaning equipment after using diesel - based sprays:
On completion of spraying, use a degreaser such as Caltex Kwik-D-Grease to remove traces of diesel from the sprayer. Rinse tank and spray through nozzles with water to remove degreaser. Then quarter fill the tank and add an alkali detergent (e.g. liquid SURF, OMO, DRIVE) at 50 mL/10L of water or the powder equivalent at 50 g/10 L. Shake sprayer to circulate the washing solution throughout the sprayer, then spray the solution through the nozzles. Rinse well with clean water to remove the detergent. To clean brushes and containers, spray liberally with degreaser. Hose off with clean water and repeat using detergents as above. DO NOT use this equipment for any other purpose.

Restraints DO NOT apply to plants which may be stressed (not actively growing) due to prolonged periods of extreme cold, moisture stress (water-logged or drought affected) poor nutrition, presence of disease, or previous herbicide treatment as reduced levels of control may result.
Thorough coverage of both foliage and stems, to the point of runoff, is essential for high volume applications (see GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS; application methods WOODY WEED SITUATIONS section).
DO NOT spray if rain is likely to occur within one hour.
Resistance Warning Acclaim Herbicide is a member of the pyridine group of herbicides. The product has the disrupters of plant cell growth mode of action. For weed resistance management, the product is a Group I Herbicide. Some naturally-occurring weed biotypes resistant to the product and other Group I herbicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any weed population. The resistant individual can eventually dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by this product or other Group I herbicides. Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant weeds. Strategies to minimize the risk of herbicide r?stance are available. Contact your farm chemical supplier, consultant, local Department of Agriculture, or Sipcam representative.
Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers. Alongside waterways, treat only noxious weeds and poisonous plants.
Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants Susceptible crops include but are not limited to clovers, cotton, fruit, hops, lupins, ornamentals, peas, pine tree, potatoes, navy beans, safflower, shade trees, soybeans, sunflower, tobacco, tomatoes, vegetables and vines. Acclaim can be damaging to susceptible crops during both growing and dormant periods. Grasses are normally unaffected by Acclaim and establish quickly after treatment. Transitory damage can occur on some species particularly those that spread by stolons such as cough grass (Cynodon dactylon), Kikuyu grass and carpet grass (Axonopus sp.) DO NOT allow spray to drift onto susceptible crops, shade trees and Pinus spp.. DO NOT use under weather conditions or from spraying equipment which could cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants.
Protection of livestock DO NOT graze or cut treated crops or plants for food except as specified under withholding periods. Poisonous plants may become more palatable after spraying. DO NOT allow stock to re-enter paddocks containing treated poisonous plants, until the plants have died down.
Safety Directions Avoid contact with eyes and skin. When opening the container, preparing the spray and using the prepared spray wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and a washable hat, elbow length PVC gloves, a face shield or goggles. Wash hands after use. After each day's use, wash gloves, face shield or goggles and contaminated clothing.
FirstAid If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre (Phone Australia: 13 1126). If swallowed DO NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water.
Storage Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.
Disposal Triple rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to the spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and deliver empty packaging to an approved waste management facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available, bury the empty packaging 500 mm below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose, clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant local, state or territory government regulations. Do not burn empty containers or product.
Refillable containers
Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves and return to point of supply for refill or storage.
Wear protective equipment (See SAFETY DIRECTIONS). Apply absorbent material such as earth, sand, clay granules or cat litter to the spill. Sweep up material for disposal when absorption is completed and contain in a refuse vessel for disposal (see STORAGE AND DISPOSAL section). If necessary wash the spill area with an alkali detergent and water and absorb the wash liquid for disposal.
