Additional Safety Phrases
Do not contaminate water with the product or its container. (Do not clean application equipment near surface water/Avoid contamination via drains from farmyards and roads.)

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. All instructions within this section must be read carefully in order to obtain safe and successful use of this product.

RESTRICTIONS
DO NOT roll, harrow or cut crops within seven days before or after spraying.
DO NOT graze crops within a week before or two weeks after spraying.
DO NOT apply during cold weather or drought.
DO NOT apply during rain or if rain is expected.
DO NOT spray in windy weather and avoid drift onto broadleaved plants outside the target area. EMBUTONE is active at low concentrations. The following crops are particularly susceptible to spray drift: beet, Brassicae (eg turnips, swedes, oilseed rape) and most market garden crops including lettuce and tomatoes under glass, pears and vines.
DO NOT use EMBUTONE immediately before or after sowing any crop.

WEEDS CONTROLLED
EMBUTONE is a selective herbicide for use post-emergence to control broadleaved weeds in cereals, grassland and lucerne.
EMBUTONE applied at 4.5 l/ha will control those annual weeds as listed and will control perennial weeds as indicated.
Annual weeds will be best controlled if spraying is done while the majority of weeds are seedlings.
Perennial weeds should be sprayed during their period of maximum growth, usually when the flower buds are beginning to form. The response of perennial weeds to treatments are often variable with only the aerial parts killed, though often suppression will occur. The recovery of weeds will be reduced if the sward is growing vigorously at the time of treatment.

Annual weeds
Annual weeds will be best controlled if spraying is done while the majority of weeds are seedlings.

Susceptible
Complete or almost complete control of seedlings*
Corn Buttercup, Fat hen, Field Pennycress Shepherd’s purse.

Moderately susceptible
Effective control of seedlings* but not necessarily complete control.
Charlock, Flixweed, Common Fumitory, Knotgrass, Black Mustard, Treacle Mustard, Small Nettle, Common Orache, Pale Persicaria, Common Poppy, Redshank, Prickly Sowthistle, Smooth Sowthistle, Wild Turnip.

Moderately resistant
Temporary suppression of seedlings*, long term control dependent on crop competition and weather.
Black Bindweed, Doves Foot Cranesbill, Groundsel, White Mustard, Scarlet Pimpernel

Resistant
No useful effect.
Chickweed, Red Deadnettle, Fool’s Parsley, Speedwells

CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
CEREALS
EMBUTONE may be used on all commercial varieties of winter and spring sown wheat, barley and oats, rye and triticale. EMBUTONE may also be used on cereals undersown with grass or lucerne.

Water volume
Apply in 200–400 litres of water per hectare. Use a minimum rate of 225 litres of water per hectare in dense stands of cereals, or if weed growth is dense.
Spray quality
Apply as a MEDIUM quality spray (as defined by BCPC). A spray pressure of two-three bar is recommended.
Timing
EMBUTONE should be applied when the crop is actively growing and is at the correct growth stage. The best results will be obtained if spraying is done while the majority of weeds are seedlings.

Winter wheat, barley and oats, triticale and rye
Dose rate
Apply EMBUTONE at a rate of 4.5 l/ha.

Timing
Apply in the spring from the leaf sheath erect stage until before the first node is detectable (BBCH GS 10–31). Do not apply in autumn, winter, during frosty weather or if frosts are expected following application.

Spring wheat
Dose rate

Apply EMBUTONE at a rate of 4.5 l/ha.

Timing
Apply from the five leaf stage until before the first node is detectable (BBCH GS 15–31).

Spring barley
Dose rate

Apply EMBUTONE at a rate of 4.5 l/ha.
Timing
Apply from the three leaf stage until before the first node is detectable (BBCH GS 13–31).

Spring oats
Dose rate

Apply EMBUTONE at a rate of 4.5 l/ha.

Timing
Apply from the three leaf stage until before the first node is detectable (BBCH GS 13–31).

Undersown cereals
Dose rate

Apply EMBUTONE to undersown cereals at a rate of 4.5 l/ha.

Timing
Application should be made when the cereal crop is at the correct growth stage, as listed above AND when the undersown crop of lucerne or grass is at the correct growth stage as listed in the grassland section below.

GRASSLAND AND LUCERNE
EMBUTONE may be used on established grassland (permanent pasture) and newly sown grass. EMBUTONE may also be used on lucerne (alfalfa) and swards containing a mixture of grasses and lucerne.

Water volume
Apply in 200–1000 litres of water per hectare. Use a minimum of 225 litres of water per hectare in dense swards, or if weed growth is dense.

Spray quality
Apply as a medium quality spray (as defined by BCPC). A spray pressure of two–three bar is recommended.

Established grassland
Dose rate

Apply to established grassland at a rate of 4.5 l/ha.
A top dressing ten days before treatment is recommended to assist kill of weeds and subsequent recovery of the sward.

Timing
The time of application is best determined according to the growth stage of weeds present. (See ‘Weeds Controlled’ section.)

Newly sown grass
Dose rate

EMBUTONE should be applied to young grass leys at a rate of 4.5 l/ha.

Timing
Spray when the grasses have at least four leaves and have begun to tiller. Where several species of grass are present the timing should be dictated by the slowest developing species. Applications before tillering may cause a temporary check to growth.

Lucerne (alfalfa)
Dose rate

EMBUTONE should be applied to lucerne at a rate of 4.5 l/ha.

Timing
Spray from the first trifoliate leaf until the fourth trifoliate leaf stage.

MIXING:
Tractor use
Apply using a conventional ground vehicle mounted/drawn equipment. Ensure that all application equipment is clean. Add half the required volume of water and start agitation, add the required quantity of EMBUTONE. Fill the tank to the required volume whilst maintaining agitation. Triple rinse containers with water and add washing to the spray tank. Continuous agitation must be maintained until spraying is complete. After use, the spraying machine must be thoroughly cleaned.
Wash equipment thoroughly with water and wetting agent or liquid detergent immediately after use. Spray out, fill with clean water and leave overnight. Spray out again before storing or using for another product. Traces of EMBUTONE can cause harm to susceptible crops sprayed later.

Knapsack application
Apply as a medium spray to just before run-off occurs.
Size of knapsack: 20 litres
Amount of Embutone: 300 ml
Amount f water: 19.7 litres
