ELUMIS is an oil based dispersion formulation containing 75 g/l mesotrione and 30 g/l nicosulfuron.

FOR USE ONLY AS AN AGRICULTURAL HERBICIDE
For the control of annual grass and broad-leaved weeds, and moderate control of perennial grass weeds in maize.
 
WEEDS CONTROLLED
ELUMIS can be used to control the following weeds in maize. For best results ELUMIS should be applied when weeds are small and actively growing. Do not spray when weed or crop foliage is wet.
ELUMIS gives useful control of the top growth of Common couch in the year of application, but reduction of growth in the following year has not been established.
 
WEEDS RESISTANCE
This product contains nicosulfuron which is an ALS inhibitor, also classified by the HRAC as ‘Group B’ and mesotrione which is an HPPD inhibitor, also classified by HRAC as ‘Group F2’.
Use ELUMIS only as a part of a resistance strategy that includes cultural methods of control and does not use ALS inhibitors as the sole chemical method of grass weed control.
There is potential for resistance to develop to ELUMIS if the product is used alone in monoculture over a number of years. ELUMIS should not be used for more than 2 years in a row without a break in situations of continuous maize production. ELUMIS should be used in mixture or in sequence with herbicides with other modes of action, particularly in continuous maize, as part of a weed resistance management plan. Crop rotation, in which using herbicides with different modes of action, can be practised as an alternative to reduce risk of development of resistance.
 
CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
Timing and Rates of Use
ELUMIS should be applied to the maize crop from the 2 leaf stage of the crop to no later than the 8 leaf stage. Refer to maximum weed growth stage limits approved. Apply ELUMIS at 1.5 litres per hectare.
After Use
Disposal of spray tank washings should be in accordance with local, state or national legislation.
 
FOLLOWING CROPS AND RECULTIVATION
Recultivation
Forage maize and grain maize can be re-seeded immediately after ploughing in the case of crop failure.
 
MIXING AND SPRAYING
Preparation of the spray solution
Shake thoroughly the ELUMIS container. Half fill the spray tank with clean water and begin agitation. Add the required quantity of ELUMIS to the tank and complete filling.
Continue agitation until spraying is completed.
Application
Application of ELUMIS will be achieved by using conventional ground spraying
equipment at water volumes of 200-400 l/ha. Apply using a medium quality spray (BCPC) at a pressure of at least 2 bar. Even cover of weeds is essential.
After Use
Disposal of spray tank washings should be in accordance with local, state or national legislation.

SOIL CONDITIONS
ELUMIS can be used on all soils (light, medium and heavy soils). High organic material content in soil may impair activity.
