Barclay Keeper 500 FL at 2 l/ha in 240 l/ha water.
If further weed germination occurs after application, an alternative approved treatment must be used.

APPLICATION (BCPC definitions)
Apply by conventional powered hydraulic sprayer in 240 l/ha water as a MEDIUM spray. Avoid spray drift.

Barclay Keeper 500 FL and mixtures should only be applied to vigorous crops which are not subject to stress (see Stress Factors).
Wide variations between daytime and night-time temperatures at or around the time of application may subject young beet plants to extra stresses causing a check to growth from which recovery may not be complete.
Do not apply to wet foliage or if rain is likely within 4 hours or if frost is forecast.

All soil types may be treated. Residual activity of the Barclay Keeper 500 FL component may be reduced on soils over 5% organic matter. A firm, fine seedbed is essential. As with all soil acting residual herbicides, adequate soil moisture is necessary for optimum residual activity.

Barclay Keeper 500 FL is compatible in tank-mix with the Barclay range of trace elements and the under mentioned approved formulations. No other treatment should be applied for 5 days before or after an application of Barclay Keeper 500 FL, except when a tank-mix is to be applied after post-emergence phenmedipham alone. Do not mix Barclay Keeper 500 FL with insecticides. When tank-mixing Barclay Keeper 500 FL with a partner, the recommendations and conditions of the partner product must be strictly observed, together with the recommendations and conditions of this label.

Half-fill the spray tank with clean water and start the re-circulation system. Add the required quantity of Barclay Keeper 500 FL to the tank. Fill the spray tank with water to the required level. Maintain re-circulation until the tank is sprayed out.

Any crop may be drilled or planted 3 months after application of Barclay Keeper provided that the land is first mould-board ploughed at least 15 cm deep. Following the failure of a beet or grass crop for any reason, only sugar beet, fodder beet, mangels or red beet may be sown within 3 months of treatment. Due allowance must also be made for other products used in the herbicide programme.

After each days use, wash out thoroughly with water and wetting agent. Remove spray jets and drain all parts of the system and allow access of air.
