1 STAPLE EASY, FLEXIBLE CONTROL OF WEEDS IN COTTON.

2 STAPLE. THE EASIEST WEED CONTROL SOLUTION. NOTHING ELSE IS AS EASY. Staple is the proven over the top cotton herbicide that controls problem weeds in cotton with a known cost up front and the flexibility to let you choose when, where and how you need to control weeds. YOU HAVE ENOUGH PROBLEMS WITH WEEDS, SO WHY CREATE MORE? Staple lets you get on with the job where chipping is impractical either because of weeds growing close to the crop or because of weed numbers. Staple reduces the problems associated with chippers such as re-entry periods, administration demands and unwanted delays. NO CONTRACTS MEAN REAL FLEXIBILITY. The great thing about Staple is that you only use it if and when you need it, so you don t have to waste money on weed control you may never need. That s because instead of signing contracts for pesticides that have a narrow use window, Staple offers you up to 10 weeks to do the same job from cotyledon to flowering. More than that, there isn t any worry about the safety of Staple to nearby cotton fields. FLEXIBLE PACKAGING. Staple is conveniently packaged in 10 x 120g water soluable sachets in a resealable foil bag. No mixing or measuring no waste as the 120g sachet has been designed to suit the application rate of Staple.

3 STAPLE EARLY IS SOUND STRATEGY. Just one Noogoora burr per 100 metres of row can cost you $47/ha in yield loss. And that s just one of the many weeds that can compete with your crop early in the season. A COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO MANAGE THE PROBLEM WHEN YOU SEE IT. Staple alone or Staple plus a light chip work out as a cost effective approach; even against hard-to-kill weeds such as burrs and vines. CROP SAFETY. Staple has been trialled since 1995 on a wide range of cotton varieties, without yield effect at 120g/ha per application. Cotton varieties: Conventional Ingard* Pima cotton varieties - Staple is not recommended for use on Pima cotton. RECROPPING AFTER COTTON. Land treated with Staple herbicide should not be rotated to crops other than those listed below. If considering other rotations please contact your local DuPont representative for more information. Crop Recrop Interval Max. Product (Months) Used Per Sprayed Hectare(g/ha) Cotton Barley Oats Wheat Crop Recrop Interval Max.

4 WEEDS CONTROLLED BY STAPLE ON COTTON. (Irrigated and dryland NSW and QLD only. Refer to label for more information.) Weed Rate Weed Stage Comments g/ha at application Annual Ground Cherry 120 Up to 4 Physalis ixocarpa Anoda weed 60 Up to 4 Anoda cristata 1) Ensure thorough spray coverage. 2) If cotton is large and the weed is shaded, directed sprays are advised. 1) Ensure thorough spray coverage. 2) If cotton is large and the weed is shaded, directed sprays are advised. Bathurst burr 120 Up to 2 Xanthium spinosum 1) Suppression of weeds at 3 to 4 can be expected. 2) If cotton is large and the weed is shaded, directed sprays are advised. 3) Rate and timing are critical. Bellvine 120 Up to 2 Ipomoea plebeia 1) Suppression of weeds at 3 to 4 can be expected. 2) Directed sprays are advised on weeds shaded by large cotton. 3) Rate and timing are critical. Boggabri weed 60 Up to 15cm Amaranthus mitchellii diameter or height Cowvine, Peachvine 120 Up to 2 Ipomoea ionchophylla 1) Ensure thorough spray coverage. 2) Beware with band spraying. If branches of the weed are not sprayed, they will continue to grow. Use blanket spraying when controlling populations 5-15cm in diameter. 3) Directed sprays are advised on weeds shaded by large cotton. 1) Suppression of weeds at 3 to 4 can be expected. 2) If cotton is large and the weed is shaded, directed sprays are advised. 3) Rate and timing are critical. Noogoora burr 120 Up to 2 Xanthium pungens 1) Suppression of weeds at 3 to 4 can be expected. 2) If cotton is large and the weed is shaded, directed sprays are advised. 3) Rate and timing are critical. Polymeria 90 Up to 6 Polymeria pussilla Sesbania Pea Up to 50cm Sesbania canabina, in height S. benthamiana 1) Ensure thorough spray coverage. 2) Beware with band spraying. If branches of the weed are not sprayed, they will continue to grow. 3) If cotton is large and the weed is shaded, directed sprays are advised. 1) Apply lower rate to plants up to 20cm high, apply higher rate to plants 20 to 50cm in height. 2) Ensure thorough spray coverage. This weed can tower over the cotton. If the growing point is not sprayed the weed will continue to grow. 3) Only weed registered for ground and aerial application. Consult label for further information. Thornapple Datura ferox, D. stramonium Up to 8 and low density Up to 8 and high density 1) Ensure thorough spray coverage. 2) Ensure coverage of the whole plant. This weed can tower over young cotton. If the branches or growing point is not sprayed the weed will continue to grow. Use blanket spraying when controlling populations at 6-8 true. 3) Use the higher rate on high density populations. Volunteer Sunflower 30 Up to 4 Helianthus annuus 1) Ensure thorough spray coverage. Wild Melon 120 Up to 2 Citrullus lanatus Yellow vine Up to 15cm Tribulus micrococcus in diameter 1) Ensure thorough spray coverage. 2) If cotton is large and the weed is shaded, directed sprays are advised. Suppression of weeds at 3 to 4 can be expected. 1) Check seed for identification. Staple only controls Yellow vine. 2) Apply lower rate to plants up to 10cm in diameter and the higher rate to plants 10-15cm in diameter. Ensure thorough spray coverage. If branches of the weed are not sprayed, they will continue to grow. Use blanket spraying when controlling populations 5-15cm in diameter. 3) If cotton is large and the weed is shaded, directed sprays are advised.

5 FLEXIBLE USE PATTERNS WITH STAPLE. PRE-PLANTING AND AT PLANTING. Continue to use normal planting herbicide. WEEDS APPEAR APPLY STAPLE. For band application on young cotton, 1 to 4 true leaves, apply Staple as a band through two 80 degree flat fan nozzles. Nozzles need to be mounted on droppers at a distance of no more than 25cm, either side of the cotton row. STAPLE + INTER ROW CULTIVATION ONE PASS. Best control will result from a banded application over the row with inter-row cultivation conducted as a one pass operation. Staple can be applied in a one pass operation in conjunction with inter-row cultivation. DO NOT cultivate before Staple is applied as this may stress the weeds and reduce the result. STAPLE + STAPLE OR STAPLE + LIGHT CHIP. Because of the wide window of application of Staple, where continuous germinations of weeds occur, follow up applications of Staple can be made through to early flowering, so long as the total seasonal use of Staple does not exceed 240g/ha. APPLY LAYBY SPRAYS. Staple can be used as a directed spray at layby, due to the crop shadowing weeds. Staple may be used in conjunction with inter-row cultivation and with other knockdown herbicides. ALWAYS READ THE PRODUCT LABEL BEFORE USING ANY AGRICULTURAL CHEMICAL.

6 STAPLE GIVES YOU THE BIGGEST WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY TO CONTROL WEEDS IN COTTON, WHETHER IT RAINS OR NOT. PLANT COTYLEDON 4 LEAF FIRST EARLY 1st BOLL FULLY PICKING SQUARE FLOWERING OPENED Glyphosate tolerant cotton. Staple gives you the biggest window of opportunity for controlling weeds because it can be applied directly over cotton at any stage from cotyledon to early flowering. You only need Staple to eliminate the problem if and when it emerges. Look at the alternatives. Staple gives you the greatest opportunity to control weeds.
