a) RESTRICTIONS OR WARNINGS
DO NOT treat barley intended for malting, spring oats or any cereal mixture with peas or beans or other legumes.
DO NOT spray undersown crops or crops to be undersown.
Do not spray where clovers or other legumes are an important part of the sward.
Damine may be applied to grassland or turf that has been established for a minimum of 12 months.
DO NOT mow or roll turf or amenity grassland for four days before or after application. The first four mowings after treatment must be composted for at least 6 months before use.
DO NOT ALLOW SPRAY TO DRIFT into greenhouses, or onto other agricultural or horticultural crops, amenity plantings or gardens. Not to be used in glasshouses.
Do not allow spray applications to come into any contact with desired broad-leaved trees. Beets, all brassicae including oilseed rape, lettuce, peas, tomatoes, potatoes, all fruit crops and ornamentals are particularly susceptible to 2,4D and may be damaged by spray drift.
Do not treat grass crops intended for seed production.
DO NOT sow any crop into soil treated with Damine for at least 3 months after application.
DO NOT treat cereals, grass or turf suffering from stress caused by drought, disease or other adverse factors, such as freezing conditions.
Ragwort is an injurious weed and those who permit it to grow unchecked on their land are liable for prosecution under the Weeds Act (1959).
Agricultural grassland destined for hay or silage in the spring, should be sprayed in the preceding autumn.
b) WEEDS CONTROLLED AND CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
Damine may be used on all varieties of the listed crops within the recommended rates of application and weed growth stages for best results.
The following weeds are moderately resistant at 1.4L/ha (where applications are made at the cotyledon to 2 leaf stage):. Black-bindweed (Polygonum convolvulus), Black nightshade (Solanum nigrum), Bugloss (Lycopsis arvensis), Common Chickweed (Stellaria media), Common field-speedwell (Veronica persica), Common fumitory (Fumaria officinalis), Common Mouse-ear (Cerastium holosteoides), Doveʼs-foot Craneʼs-bill (Geranium molle), Field Gromwell (Lithospermum arvense), Green Field speedwell (Veronica agrestis), Groundsel (Senecio vulgaris), Ivy-leaved Speedwell (Veronica hederifolia), Knotgrass (Polygonum aviculare), Pale Persicaria (Polygonum lapathifolium), Redshank (Polygonum persicaria), Scarlet Pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis), Shepherdʼs-needle (Scandix pectinveneris), Sun spurge (Euphorbia helioscopia), Viperʼs-bugloss (Echium vulgare), Wall speedwell (Veronica arvensis).
c) MIXING AND SPRAYING
Apply Damine preferably to young and actively growing weeds that have well developed foliage, but before the flower buds have opened, usually in late spring or summer but not when rain is imminent nor in periods of drought or very hot or cold weather. Control may be reduced if rain falls within 12 hours of application. Broad-leaved weeds are best treated when they have a well-developed 'rosette' of leaves.
Before mixing, ensure that the spraying equipment has been thoroughly decontaminated from any previous use, and that it has been equipped and calibrated to apply the recommended spray volume and spray quality. Place half the required amount of water in the spray tank, followed by the recommended quantity of Damine. In the case of using the entire container of Damine, rinse the container thoroughly and add the washings to the spray tank. Add the remaining water requirement to the spray tank. When using overall application with a tractor sprayer, maintain agitation throughout the mixing and spraying operation. When using a knapsack sprayer, agitate the container before use.
Traces of herbicide left in the sprayer may damage susceptible crops if these are subsequently sprayed using the same equipment. After use with agricultural field sprayer, dilute 10 fold the remaining spray solution and spray it onto the field. Once the sprayer is empty, clean the spray tank thoroughly with water and spray the remaining dilution onto the field. After use with knapsack sprayer, rinse the sprayer three times with clean water.
This method is recommended when weed populations are high and there is a large area to be treated. Apply Damine in 200 to 400 litres of water per hectare, as a MEDIUM spray at a pressure of 3 bar. Where weed foliage is dense or tall, use the higher volume of water. Make sure that all foliage to be controlled is covered by the spray
This method is recommended for spot treatment of weeds. Add 20 ml of DAMINE per litre of water and apply as a MEDIUM spray to ensure even coverage of the weeds (but not to run-off).
When herbicides with the same mode of action are used repeatedly over several years in the same field, selection of resistant biotypes can take place. These can propagate and may become dominating. A weed species is considered to be resistant to a herbicide if it survives a correctly-applied treatment at the recommended dose. 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 adviser or product manufacturer.
Damine is compatible with products containing the following herbicides when used according to the manufacturers instructions: Dicamba, MCPA and Mecoprop-P (MCPP-P).
