DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Aramo is a systemic herbicide for the post-emergence control of a range of grass weeds, including black-grass, annual meadow-grass, wild oats, sterile brome and common couch as well as cereal volunteers.
Only weeds which have emerged at the time of application will be controlled. The optimum timing is when weeds are small (before tillering) and have not yet begun to compete with the crop. This is particularly important when blackgrass is the main target weed and resistance may be suspected.
Aramo is absorbed by the leaves of grass weeds and is translocated through the plant to the growing point at the base of the plant resulting in stem and root tissue decay. Foliar death is evident 3-4 weeks after application under warm moist conditions. Cool conditions will slow down activity and very dry conditions will inhibit translocation of the herbicide to the growing point, resulting in reduced activity.
Aramo can be used on all soil types.

Restrictions/Warnings
For professional use only
Processors or contract agents should be consulted before using on crops grown for processing or for seed.
Prevent drift onto other crops and plants outside of the target area, especially susceptible types such as cereals and grasses or severe damage may result.
Apply within the recommended growth stages when weeds are actively growing for best results. Drought, cool conditions stress or other negative factors can reduce effectiveness by interfering with uptake and translocation of Aramo.
Do not apply to crops which are damaged or stressed from factors such as previous herbicide treatments, or pest or disease attack.
Do not spray if rain or frost is expected, nor if the foliage is wet.
Aramo must only be applied via conventional ground sprayer, not via knapsack sprayers.
Ensure that the sprayer is free from previous chemical residues which may harm the crop. Use of a detergent cleaner is advised before and after use.
Before using on land taken out of production as part of a grant aided scheme, ensure compliance with the management rules of that scheme.
Do not overlap spray swaths. This is particularly important for winter oilseed rape and bulb onions as crop damage and reduced yields could result.
Do not use on oilseed rape crops with very low vigour and poor yield potential.
Sequences with other products:
Aramo may follow the application of pre-emergence treatments to any crop provided that the crop is undamaged.
Oilseed rape (winter), Peas, Sugar Beet and Fodder Beet, Linseed and Flax, Field Beans: When used in sequence with other post-emergence treatments in these crops, care should be taken to allow at least 14 days between applications. A crystal violet test should be carried out in peas before the application of Aramo.
Oilseed rape (winter) and Bulb Onions: Care must be taken when using Aramo in sequence with other products to ensure that crops have sufficient wax covering before application of Aramo and are not suffering from the effects of any previous treatment. If any doubt exists, the application should be delayed.
Also see Restrictions/Warnings 1.5 and 1.6 above.
 
Weed Control
Common Couch
Sufficient foliage should have emerged to absorb the spray. Shoots not emerged or just emerging at application will not be controlled.
Do not cultivate for at least 14 days after application to allow time for translocation to occur. Leave a longer interval (up to 21 days) if growing conditions are poor.
Aramo gives control of top growth of Common Couch at this rate. To improve suppression of established couch, a thorough pre-planting cultivation to a depth of 10 cms is recommended to fragment the rhizomes and encourage uniform emergence.
The effects on the long-term control of couch, i.e. in succeeding crops, has not been investigated.
Resistance
Strains of some annual grasses (eg Black-grass, Wild-Oats, and Italian Ryegrass) have developed resistance to herbicides, which may lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted. Guidelines have been produced by the Weed Resistance Action Group and copies are available from the HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.
This product contains tepraloxydim which is an ACCase inhibitor, also classified by the Herbicide Resistance Action Committee as ’Group A.’
Use only as part of a resistance management strategy that includes cultural methods of control and does not use ACCase inhibitors as the sole chemical method of grass-weed control.
Applying a second product containing an ACCase inhibitor to a crop will increase the risk of resistance development; only use a second ACCase inhibitor to control different weeds at a different timing.
Do not use reduced doses of Aramo on resistant grass weed populations.
Populations of black-grass with high levels of resistance will not be fully controlled.
Adopt a long-term strategy integrating cultural and chemical measures. Achieving maximum benefits from cultural and chemical control depends on attention to detail. This is the most important factor determining the success of any anti-resistance strategy.
Key elements of the resistance management strategy for Aramo:
-Always follow WRAG guidelines for preventing and managing herbicide resistant weeds.
-Maximise the use of cultural control measures wherever possible (e.g. crop rotation, ploughing, stale seedbeds, delayed drilling, etc).
-Use tank mixes or sequences of effective herbicides with different modes of action within individual crops, or successive crops.
-For the control of herbicide resistant grassweeds, always use Aramo in sequence with other effective graminicides with different modes of action.
- Apply post-emergence to small, actively growing weeds, especially where high levels of resistance are suspected and to reduce the risk of resistance development.
-Identify the herbicides to which your grassweeds are resistant. This can help determine the most appropriate herbicides to include in your management strategy.
- Monitor fields regularly and investigate the reasons for any poor control.
 
Crops
Sugar Beet and Fodder Beet
Aramo can be applied from when the crop has fully expanded cotyledons to before row closure.
Winter Oilseed rape (including industrial oilseed rape)
Aramo can be applied to winter oilseed rape from cotyledon fully expanded up to before the end of November or before the crop has 9 true leaves, whichever occurs first. Do not use more than 1.0 litre per hectare. See also Restrictions/Warnings 1.10.
Linseed (including industrial linseed) and Flax
Aramo can be applied in the spring to linseed and flax from when the crop has 2 true leaves up to before flower buds are visible within the crop.
 
Combining and Vining Peas
Aramo can be applied in the spring to all varieties of combining and vining peas from the two node stage of the crop until before the crop canopy prevents adequate spray penetration. A satisfactory leaf wax test using crystal violet marker dye must be performed before applying Aramo in peas. Applications may only be made to winter pea varieties in the spring.
Winter Field Beans
Aramo can be applied in the spring from the three leaf stage of the crop until the six visibly extending internodes stage.
Spring Field Beans
Aramo can be applied in the spring from the two leaf stage of the crop until the first side shoot detectable stage.
Bulb onions
Aramo can be applied in bulb onions from the whip stage up to 4 weeks before harvest. A split dose may be used for the control of annual meadow grass. Where black grass, Italian rye-grass or wild oats are present use only one application per crop to prevent the development of resistance.
Carrots
Aramo can be applied in carrots from 1 true leaf fully expanded up to 3 weeks before harvest.
Leeks
Aramo can be applied in leeks from 3 leaves clearly visible up to 4 weeks before harvest. A split dose may be used for the control of annual meadow grass. Where black grass, Italian rye-grass or wild oats are present use only one application per crop to prevent the development of resistance.
Cabbages
Aramo can be applied in cabbages from 4 true leaves up to the beginning of head formation, when the two youngest leaves do not unfold.
Cauliflower
Aramo can be applied in cauliflowers from 2 true leaves up to the beginning of head formation.
 
Mixing and Spraying
Half-fill the spray tank with clean water and start the agitation. SHAKE THE CONTAINER WELL before use and pour in the required amount of product. Rinse any empty containers thoroughly and add rinsings to the spray tank. Add the remainder of the water and continue agitation until spraying is completed.
All applications should be made as a FINE or MEDIUM spray as defined by BCPC.
Applications should be made in water volumes of 100 - 200 litres per hectare. Aramo does not require the addition of an adjuvant oil.
