Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity is a systemic herbicide for the control by foliar uptake of most broad-leaved and grass weeds in:
Amenity Vegetation
Enclosed Water
Hard Surfaces
Land Immediately adjacent to aquatic areas
Natural surfaces not intended to bear vegetation
Open Waters • Permeable surf.

Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity is a foliar acting herbicide that controls annual and perennial grasses and most broad-leaved weeds when used as directed. It is translocated from treated vegetative growth to underground roots, rhizomes or stolons. Leaf symptoms, being a reddening then yellowing of the foliage, are first seen on grass weeds but take longer to appear on broadleaved weeds.
It is particularly important that the weeds have sufficient leaf growth and are actively growing when treated.
Perennial grass weeds must have produced fresh leaves, which are green and vigorous. Common couch/scutch is most susceptible to Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity when it is tillering and when new rhizomes have begun to grow. This is usually when the plants have about 5-6 leaves, each with approximately 12-15 cm (5-6”) of new growth.
The majority of perennial broad-leaved weeds are most susceptible if treated when they are actively growing and are at or near flowering stage.
Annual weeds should be actively growing with grasses having at least 5 cm (2”) of leaf and broad-leaved weeds at least two expanded true leaves when sprayed. Couch/scutch grasses and other grass and broad-leaved weeds are less susceptible to Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity when growth is restricted by drought, waterlogging, frost, very high temperatures or natural dieback. Efficacy will be reduced if such conditions occur at or immediately after spraying.
Occasionally a slight check to crop growth may occur, particularly after direct drilling when crop seeds germinate amongst a mass of decaying foliage, stolons, rhizomes or roots. Thorough cultivations are necessary to disperse or bury decaying organic matter. Consolidate loose soils and ensure crops are adequately fertilised and appropriate measures are taken to prevent insect and fungal damage to the following crop, especially where following grassland.
DO NOT apply lime, fertiliser, farmyard manure, pesticides or similar materials within 7 days of Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity.
Note: Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity does not give acceptable control of horsetail, Equisetum arvense. Repeat treatment will be necessary.
The label recommendations and the DEFRA/HSE/DETR publication “Code of Practice for Using Plant Protection Products” should be adhered to when Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity is used on farms and holdings. The label recommendations and the NAAC/CPA publication “Code of Practice for Using Plant Protection Products” should be adhered to when Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity is for industrial use

A period of at least 6 hours and preferably 24 hours free of rain must follow spraying. Do not spray onto weeds suffering from drought stress as reduced control may occur. Do not spray in windy conditions as drift onto other crops or vegetation can cause severe injury or destruction. Do not spray during frosty weather that prevents active growth and can induce weed senescence.

Certain weeds, particularly those with an erect growth habit and having a spatial separation from desirable species, can be effectively controlled by wiping a concentrated solution of Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity onto the leaves or stems. Weeds must be actively growing at application. Do not apply when rain is expected within 6 hours as, apart from unsatisfactory weed control, herbicide might be transferred to desirable species by rain splash or foliar contact.

Ensure that there is a minimum 5 cm (2”) between the top of the tallest desired vegetation and the impregnated wiper.
Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity dilution
Maximum concentrations must not exceed the following:
Weedwiper Mini: 1 volume Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity : 2 volumes of water
Other wipers: 1 volume Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity : 1 volume of water for normal conditions; under warm, dry conditions use 1:2 dilution with water. Weedwipers may be used in any crop where the wiper does not touch the growing crop.
Note: for ease of identification of treated weeds, a suitable commercially available water soluble dye may be added to the prepared solution at 1 ml dye per 10 litres of prepared spray solution.

Pour the recommended quantity of Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity into the spray tank already half-filled with clean water and under agitation. Top up the tank with more clean water to the required level, whilst maintaining agitation. Spray out on the day of mixing.

Knapsack sprayers
Add the recommended quantity of Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity to the knapsack spray tank approximately one-third filled with clean water. Agitate thoroughly with a clean rod or by shaking after replacing the lid. Top up the tank with more clean water to the required level and agitate thoroughly before use. Spray out on the day of mixing.

Conventional hydraulic sprayers
Knapsack sprayers
Prepared spray solution should be applied as a MEDIUM or COARSE spray (BCPC definition) at nozzle pressures not exceeding 2.5 bar (35 psi). Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity is a systemic weedkiller and is active at low doses. Extreme care must be taken to avoid spray drift onto non-crop plants outside of the target area. DO NOT SPRAY in windy weather or near to desirable species or amenity plants as drift onto other crops or vegetation can cause severe plant injury or destruction.

Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity may be used to control weeds on all mineral or organic soils or surfaces, including ash and gravel. Only weeds showing green leaf at the time of application can be killed. There is no residual activity with Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity.

Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity has no long-lasting herbicidal activity in soils after application. Agricultural and horticultural quality soils may be planted up with trees after not less than 7 days after application, unless directed otherwise. Other amenity plants may be planted after the treated vegetation has died back or after cultivation. Under normal weather conditions, cultivations may be conducted 7 days after treatment. Under poor growing conditions wait for the characteristic red/yellow leaf symptoms to appear before cultivating.

There is a low risk of weeds developing resistance to Barclay Gallup Biograde Amenity. Growers are encouraged to implement a weed resistance strategy based on good agricultural practices and good plant protection practices. Good practice is achieved and enhanced by:
Following these label recommendations.
Adopting complementary weed control measures.
Minimising the spread of weeds and their seeds.
Implementing good spraying practices to achieve maximum weed control.
Using the correct nozzles to maximise weed coverage.
Applying only under appropriate weather conditions.
Monitoring performance and reporting unexpected results to Barclay Chemicals Manufacturing Ltd.
Strains of some annual weeds, e.g. black-grass, wild-oat and Italian rye-grass, have developed resistance to herbicides which may lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted. This should include integrating herbicides with a programme of cultural control measures. Guidelines have been produced by the Weed Resistance Action Group and copies are available from the HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop advisor or product manufacturer.

Wash equipment thoroughly after use with water and cleaning agent to remove traces of herbicide. Traces of herbicide left in the equipment may seriously damage or destroy crops sprayed with the same equipment at a later date.
