Active materials

Contains 480 g/l (44.65% w/w) chlorpyrifos.

An insecticide/acaricide for the control of various pests in listed cereals, grassland, sugar beet, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, maize, onions, apples, pears, plums, raspberry, strawberry, currants, gooseberry and in forestry.

Soils: Barclay Clinch XL is active against recommended soil pests on all soil types, but activity may be reduced on organic soils.

Weather: Do not apply onto snow covered or frosted soils or during windy weather. Activity may be reduced when soil temperatures are below 5º C (41º F).

Mixing: Pour the required quantity of Barclay Clinch XL into the sprayer tank already half-filled with water and with the recirculation system in action. Top up the tank with water and maintain re-circulation until the tank is sprayed out.

Application: Apply the prepared mix as a MEDIUM spray (BCPC definition). Operate equipment to achieve maximum foliar coverage and penetration into the middle of plants or bushes (where applicable). Spray booms fitted with pendant lances may enhance efficacy in some crops.

Tank Mixes: Barclay Clinch XL is compatible in tank-mix for application by conventional hydraulic equipment with one of the approved formulations listed below. When tank-mixing Barclay Clinch XL, the Directions for Use of both products must be strictly observed. Normally mix Barclay Clinch XL in the spray tank first unless directed otherwise. Spray out immediately after mixing.

Always mix Barclay Clinch XL in the spray tank first. Barclay Clinch XL is not compatible with zineb or highly alkaline products. After flag leaf emergence of cereals, minimise the risk of leaf scorch in tank-mixes with fungicides by using the highest recommended volume of water common to each product, avoiding the use of adjuvants and spraying during the coolest part of the day. Isoproturon-containing herbicides whether used alone or in tank mixture with Barclay Clinch XL should not be used on waterlogged or poorly drained soils or cloddy soils or applied before or during periods of frost. Some damage to the crop may occur on open, free-draining soils, especially sandy and gravelly soils, and stony soils if heavy rain falls soon after application. Early sown crops can be checked or damaged if treated whilst rapidly growing in autumn or if treated prior to a period of rapid growth.

Resistant Strains: Strains of some aphid species, pear suckers and spider mites resistant to one or more groups of insecticides are widespread. Where strains resistant to products containing chlorpyrifos occur, Barclay Clinch XL is unlikely to give satisfactory control. Repeat treatments are likely to result in lower levels of control. Where repeat treatments are necessary, use different active ingredients. For damson-hop aphid, wherever possible use different active ingredients in a programme of treatments.

Processed Crops: Consult processors before treating crops intended for processing.
