Afalon Liquid

registration_data_unavailable
ADAMA - herbicide
02839
A suspension concentrate containing 450 g/l (37.6% w/w) linuron.
For weed control in potatoes, carrots, parsnips, peas, beans and field parsley.
 
Restrictions
Do not allow direct spray from ground crop sprayers to fall within 5m of the top of the bank of a static or flowing waterbody. Direct spray away from water.
 
Potatoes
Tubers should be planted in a well prepared seedbed which contains as few clods as possible. Afalon Liquid may be applied after planting but before the crop has emerged. When grass and broadleaved weeds have emerged, Afalon Liquid may be applied with a contact herbicide for contact and residual weed control (refer to the section on Compatibility for information).
 
Note: The lower dose may be used on the lighter soils, where the more susceptible weeds occur or when weather conditions for crop growth and soil action are favourable.

Carrots, parsley (field only) and parsnips
Seeds should be drilled into a fine seed-bed at an even depth of not less than 1.25 cm. For optimum results two applications of Afalon Liquid may be necessary to be applied to the crop. The first should be made after drilling the crop but before weed or crop emergence. A further application should be made as soon as weeds appear, providing the crop has reached the correct stage of growth.

Dosage
For carrots and parsnips apply 2 applications at up to 1.0 l/ha or 1 application at up to 2.1 l/ha. Alternatively a later application can be made at a reduced rate of 1.35 l/ha - see Important Information section for details. Do not apply more than a total of 2.1l/ha.
 
For parsley (field only) apply only one application at up to 2.1 l/ha.
These rates of use should be amended depending on the soil type, please see the table below for details.
 
Peas and Beans
CONSULT PROCESSORS BEFORE USING ON CROPS GROWN FOR PROCESSING.
Apply after sowing the crop but before crop emergence at a rate of 1.35 l/ha.
 
Following Crops
In the case of crop failure, deep ploughing should be undertaken before sowing the following crops can be drilled: maize, cereals, fennel and parsley. The following crops can be drilled after 2 months have elapsed: carrots, field beans and peas. For sensitive crops like lettuce and endive, the period between application and sowing should be at least 4 months.
In a normal crop rotation, no problems regarding succeeding crops are expected after application of Afalon Liquid.
 
Spraying instructions
Afalon Liquid should be applied in a volume of 300-500 litres of water per hectare (30-50 gallons per acre). Half fill the spray tank with water and add the required quantity of Afalon Liquid. Continue agitation during tilling and spraying.
After spraying thoroughly wash out spray tank. Ensure that the sprayer is correctly calibrated and the boom height adjusted for complete even cover of the ground and, where applicable, the weeds. Avoid overlapping.
