New APVMA Use Guidelines for Adama Australia 2,4-D Herbicides

 

We’d like to inform customers and end users of new APVMA directions for use for our 2,4-D Herbicides.

The APVMA is suspending the current labels of all 2,4-D products between 3 October 2018 and 2 October 2019.

During the suspension period, use of 2,4-D products (with existing labels) will be allowed under a permit issued by APVMA.

Key changes covered in the permit include:

  • New mandatory buffers zones for aquatic and non-target terrestrial areas

  • Minimum VERY COARSE spray droplet size category requirement

  • Restriction on application during temperature inversions

  • Advisory instructions including EXTREMELY COARSE spray droplet size category and reduced boom / release heights for both ground and aerial application in cereals, pasture and fallow between 1 October and 15 April.

These changes are part of the APVMA’s ongoing 2,4-D Chemical Review with the objective of further mitigating spray drift risk. More information can be found on the APVMA website.
