Overview For the control of certain weeds in clover-based pasture, field peas, lentils, lupins and oilseed poppy.
Chemical Group nicotinanilide
General Instructions For use as an early post-emergence spray in clover-based pasture, field peas, lentils and lupins. Aspect Options may also be used as a post sowing pre-emergence spray on lupins in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. This product provides both contact and residual activity. Residual activity can be expected for up to 8 weeks after application under favourable growing conditions. This product is taken up by the shoots of germinating seeds and seedlings. Susceptible weeds germinate but show immediate chlorosis followed by a mauve-pink discolouration. The chlorosis spreads with the aerial growth and the plants become necrotic and die back. After application, some transient crop discoloration may occur. In lentils and lupins, this usually appears as yellow or white banding on the leaves, while in clover and field peas, white/pink colouration of the leaf veins and tips may occur. Some crop height reduction may also occur. Provided the crop is not under stress from pre-emergent herbicide, disease, insect damage, nutrient deficiency, frost, extremes of pH, dry or excessively moist conditions, the development of the crop and all subsequent growth will not be affected. Some pre-emergence herbicides, such as atrazine, can cause stress to certain crops resulting in an increase in crop damage when using this product. Field peas are particularly sensitive.

Subsequent Crop Tolerance
To reduce the effect on subsequent susceptible crops (e.g. canola) ensure thorough cultivation of soil prior to the sowing of these crops.

Stir product or invert container several times before use as settling may occur after storage for some weeks. To ensure even mixing, half fill the spray tank when clean water and add the required amount of product. Agitate thoroughly then add the remainder of the water. Agitate thoroughly while carrying out spray operations. Reseal part-used container immediately after use.

A minimum water rate of 50 L/ha should be used, however, for optimum results water rates of 70-100 L/ha are recommended. Increase the water volume where weed infestation is heavy or the crop cover is dense. Complete coverage of weeds is essential. Higher water volumes (up to 100 L/ha) will ensure improved activity of this product on the weeds but may increase the symptoms of crop damage.

Aspect Options is physically compatible with most currently registered grass herbicides as two-way tank mixtures.

For tank-mixtures with grass herbicides, use the recommended rates for both herbicides as well as the surfactant recommendations of the grass herbicide. Read the label for the grass herbicide before mixing and using the tank mixtures. DO NOT use crop oils with Aspect Options or Aspect Options/grass herbicide tank-mixtures. Applications to lupins and field peas under stressed conditions may cause significant damage to the crops. Tank mixes with simazine should be applied post-emergence to lupins crops only. Increased crop effects may be experience with the tank mix. DO NOT apply tank-mixtures to clover. When tank mixing Aspect Options and Targa, use a surfactant only. Mixtures of Aspect Options and Verdict applied to lupins or field peas can cause damage that may result in yield losses. Consult your local Sipcam representative or the relevant grass herbicide manufacturer for advice on application and timing of tank-mixtures. As formulations of other manufacturers' products are beyond the control of Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

Restraints DO NOT apply if crop or weeds are stressed due to dry or excessively moist conditions.
DO NOT apply to crops under stress due to pre-emergence herbicide, root disease, insect damage, nutrient deficiency, excessively moist or dry conditions or extremes of pH.
DO NOT apply to frost affected crops or if frosts are imminent.
DO NOT apply if heavy rain is expected within 4 hours.
Resistance Warning Aspect Options is a member of the nicotinanilide group of herbicides and acts by inhibiting carotenoid biosynthesis. For weed resistance management Aspect Options is a Group F herbicide. Some naturally occurring weed biotypes resistant to Aspect Options and other nicotinanilides may exist through normal genetic variability in any weed population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly. These resistant weds will not be controlled by Aspect Options or other nicotinanilide 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 Aspect Options to control resistant weeds.
Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers. DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures.
Safety Directions Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Wash hands after use.
FirstAid If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or poisons Information Centre (telephone 13 11 26)
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.
