WEED CONTROL
Speed of kill will be more rapid when weeds are growing actively under warm conditions with adequate moisture. Treatment under cool conditions will give slower activity. In poor conditions use the higher dose. Weeds germinating after application will NOT be controlled. Broad-leaved weeds will NOT be controlled.

Notes:
1. Use highest dose specified if weeds are beyond optimum growth stage or under the following conditions:
Poor growing conditions, e.g. cool temperatures, dry soil
Overwintered weeds
Severe weed infestations especially in non-competitive crops e.g. sugar beet, bulb onions and thin crops of oilseed rape
2. Barley cover crops: spray when risk of wind blow has passed and before there is serious competition with the crop. Use the higher dose of 1.2 L/ha if spraying is late.

Annual Meadowgrass
Growth will be checked at doses of 0.7 – 1.0 L/ha and severely checked at 1.5 L/ha. These effects will be reduced if annual meadowgrass is beyond 3 leaves unfolded stage at spraying.

Blackgrass
CLAW can contribute to the control of blackgrass as part of a herbicide resistance management strategy, involving mixtures and sequences with herbicides of alternative modes of action. Where resistant biotypes are present control from CLAW will be unacceptable.

FOLLOWING CROPS
If a crop treated with CLAW should fail for any reason, or after normal harvest, the minimum intervals listed must be observed before replanting any of the following crops: Winter wheat, winter barley - 2 weeks; Peas, field beans, maize and winter oilseed rape 4 - weeks; Winter oats - 16 weeks; Ryegrass - 8 weeks.

RESTRICTIONS OR WARNINGS
CLAW is foliar acting and the dose is therefore independent of soil type. Avoid overlaps. Avoid spray drift onto neighbouring crops, especially cereal crops.
Peas and beans
If CLAW is applied during periods of high temperatures and/or low soil moisture content chlorotic spotting of the crop may result, particularly on combining peas and field beans, but there is no adverse effect on subsequent growth or yield of combining peas.
Carrots and onions
Crop effects can occur when the couch dose is applied at early growth stages in carrots and onions. Potatoes CLAW must not be applied to seed crops. Crops suffering from frost damage should not be treated.

Qualified minor use recommendation
CLAW can also be used on dwarf French beans, broad beans and Navy beans as a qualified minor use recommendation as crop safety on these crops is based on limited evidence.

Resistance warning
This product contains propaquizafop 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. Strains of some annual grasses (e.g. 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 advisor or product manufacturer.
Specifically:
To reduce the risk of developing resistance applications should be made to young, actively growing weeds.
Use crop rotation and other cultural control measures to prevent and manage herbicide resistant grass weeds.
Always follow WRAG guidelines for preventing and managing herbicide resistant grass weeds.
Do not use CLAW or any other ACCase inhibitor as the sole means of grass weed control in successive crops.
Use grass weed herbicides with different modes of action throughout the cropping rotation.
Use tank/product mixes or sequences of herbicides with different modes of action within individual crops, or successive crops.
Monitor weed control effectiveness and investigate any odd patches of poor grass weed control. If unexplained, contact your agronomist who may consider a resistance test appropriate.

MIXING AND SPRAYING
CLAW should be applied as a FINE or MEDIUM spray (as defined by BCPC) in 100-200 litres water per hectare. Good spray cover is essential for good results. Use the higher spray volume in dense crop or weed situations. Half fill the spray tank with clean water and begin agitation. Add required quantity of CLAW to the tank and complete the filling. Continue agitation until spraying is completed. Spray immediately after mixing. On emptying the container, RINSE CONTAINER THOROUGHLY by using an integrated pressure rinsing device or manually rinsing three times. Add washings to sprayer at time of filling and dispose of container safely. Sprayers should be thoroughly cleaned before use and filters and nozzles checked for damage and blockage. CLAW may be applied by tractor mounted/drawn sprayer. The sprayer should be calibrated to apply 200-250 L/ha as a FINE or MEDIUM spray (as defined by BCPC). For knapsack sprayers: Half fill the sprayer tank with clean water. Add the measured amount of product, with rinsings, to the sprayer tank and fit the tank lid. Gently shake the sprayer, by rocking, to ensure thorough mixing. Top up the tank with water to the correct level. Refit the tank lid and again gently shake the sprayer, by rocking, to ensure thorough mixing. When used at a walking speed of 1 m/sec to apply a swath of 1 m width, most knapsack sprayers fitted with a Lurmark AN 2.0 or similar nozzle deliver approximately 200 L/ha spray volume (or 10 L per 500 m2).
