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.
RATES OF USE
The rate of FARMCO FLOXXY is dependent on the weed, the size of the weed and the tank mix use as detailed below.
Using standard nozzles the recommended spray volume is 150 to 400 litres of water per hectare. The lowest water volume should only be used in very open crops on small weeds. On later applications where the crop is dense, the spray volume should be increased to 400 litres water per hectare. The minimum recommended pressure is 2 to 3 bars.
Add the appropriate amount of FARMCO FLOXXY to clean water in a half-filled sprayer tank, mix thoroughly and add the remainder of the water. The spray mix must be agitated continuously during mixing and until application is complete.
Apply FARMCO FLOXXY as a MEDIUM spray as defined by the BCPC system.
SPRING APPLICATION TO WINTER CEREALS
Winter wheat, winter barley, winter oats, winter rye, durum wheat and triticale.
CROPS AND TIMING
Winter wheat and winter barley
FARMCO FLOXXY alone can be applied from the two-leaf stage of the crop and up before the boot swollen stage (GS 45).
FARMCO FLOXXY tank mixed with HBN’s~ can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop but before the second node detectable stage (Zadocks 12-31 inclusive)
Winter oats, winter rye, durum wheat and triticale
FARMCO FLOXXY alone can be used on winter oats, winter rye, durum wheat and triticale from the two-leaf stage of the crop and up to before the first node detectable stage (GS 31). The timing of application of FARMCO FLOXXY mixes depends on the tank mix partner but mixes should not be applied after the first node detectable stage (GS 31). At the present, there is no recommendation to use FARMCO FLOXXY on triticale in tank mix with any other herbicides.
SPRING APPLICATION TO SPRING CEREALS
Spring wheat, spring barley and spring oats
CROPS AND TIMING
Spring wheat and spring barley
FARMCO FLOXXY alone can be applied from the two-leaf stage of the crop and up to before first node detectable stage (GS 39).
FARMCO FLOXXY alone can be applied from the two-leaf stage of the crop and up to before first node detectable stage (GS 31).
CROPS, TIMINGS ETC CAN BE AFFECTED BY THE RATE AND TYPE OF TANK MIX PARTNER USED. ALWAYS REFER TO THE PRODUCT LABELOF THE TANK MIX PARTNER.
AUTUMN APPLICATION TO WINTER WHEAT AND WINTER BARLEY
FARMCO FLOXXY will only produce optimum results when the weeds are actively growing and the crops competitive. This is particularly important with cleavers. Do not spray if frost is imminent.
Autumn applications will not control weeds which germinate after spraying. In most circumstances a follow-up spray will be necessary to obtain season long weed control.
CROPS AND TIMING
Winter wheat and barley only
FARMCO FLOXXY alone or in a tank mix with recommended HBN~ partners can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop until the end of February (but not after the first node detectable stage (Zadocks 31). After the end of February, ‘Spring Application’ recommendations apply.
VOLUNTEER POTATO CONTROL-WINTER WHEAT AND WINTER BARLEY ONLY RATE OF USE AND WATER VOLUME
Apply FARMCO FLOXXY at 2.0 litres/ha in 300-400 litres of water per hectare using standard nozzles.
TIMING–CEREAL CROP STAGE
Apply FARMCO FLOXXY anytime from the third node detectable stage of the crop and up to before the boot swollen stage (GS 45).
WEED SIZE CONTROLLED
Potato shoots from 10 cm up to 40 cm in height.
FARMCO FLOXXY will only affect shoots which have emerged at the time of spraying.
FARMCO FLOXXY will not give complete control of top growth. However, a good degree of stunting can be expected, which will reduce the competitive threat posed to these crops by this weed. Because volunteer potatoes can emerge over an extended period, sprays applied later in the recommended period will generally give better results.
The main factors for obtaining successful results are that there is sufficient actively growing green foliage on the potatoes and that good coverage of this foliage is achieved, for example by use of sufficiently high water volumes. In addition to the control of volunteer potato haulm this use of FARMCO FLOXXY will give a useful reduction in the viability of daughter tubers.
These warnings apply only for this high rate recommendation of 2.0 litres/ha of FARMCO FLOXXY. They do not apply where FARMCO FLOXXY is used at the standard rates for annual broad-leaved weed control (0.5–1.0 litre/ha).
Avoid overlapping spray bouts.
Straw from cereals treated at these rates and timings with FARMCO FLOXXY may contain residues which could damage certain crops. Straw must not be incorporated back into the soil. When straw is disposed of by baling and carting it should be used only for animal bedding. Manure from such animal bedding should be used on or before cereal or grass crops only.
DO NOT PLANT WINTER BEANS or other legumes in the same year as this treatment with FARMCO FLOXXY.
DO NOT PLANT PEAS or other legumes in the spring following this treatment.
DO NOT TANK MIX FARMCO FLOXXY WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCT when used as recommended as above.
GRAIN AND FORAGE MAIZE
RATE OF USE
Apply FARMCO FLOXXY at 1.0 litre/ha.
Apply FARMCO FLOXXY in 200-300 litres of water per hectare.
Apply when maize is between the 3-6 leaf stage and before the crop is over 20cm tall. Do not apply once the buttress roots (side roots) have started to develop on the first node.
FARMCO FLOXXY will control black nightshade from cotyledons up to 6 true leaves. It will not control black nightshade which has not emerged at the time of application.
Do not apply in tank mix with any other product or if the crop is beyond the recommended growth stage.
Avoid boom overlap.
Where tank mixes are used, and unless directed otherwise, the preferred order of addition of products to the tank is as follows:
- water dispersible grains
-suspension concentrates (flowables)
Each product should be added to the half-full sprayer tank and be fully dispersed before the addition of the next product.
FARMCO FLOXXY can be tank mixed with a number of other herbicides to broad
en the spectrum of weeds controlled. These other herbicides may havecrop, timing, varietal and other restrictions which are different to those of FARMCO FLOXXY. FARMCO FLOXXY should be applied in tank mix with other products only if any requirements or restrictions on the other product label do not conflict with the requirements or restrictions for FARMCO FLOXXY. Tank mixes should only be applied within label recommendations of every product in the mix.
Tank mixes should not be allowed to stand in the tank and agitation should be maintained at all times.
Keep livestock out of treated areas for at least 3 days and until poisonous weeds such as ragwort have died and become unpala table.
For best results apply FARMCO FLOXXY when weeds are actively growing. In newly-sown crops, seedling and small weeds are more susceptible to FARMCO FLOXXY and will respond quicker when treated at this stage. Vigorous crop competition enhances control of the more resistant weeds and prevents weeds which germinate after application from becoming a problem in the crop.
Crops undersown with grass may be sprayed provided the grasses are tillering.
Do not apply to crops undersown with clover or other legume-containing mixtures.
FARMCO FLOXXY will only produce optimum results when
the weeds are actively growing and the crop competitive. This is particularly important with cleavers, especially where HBN’s are not included in the tank mix.
FARMCO FLOXXY is of low volatility and is therefore not subject to vapour drift.
Do not spray in windy weather and avoid drift onto non-target crops/areas.
Do not treat crops under stress. Stress can be caused by many factors including frost, drought, waterlogging, trace element deficiency, disease and pest attack etc.
Do not spray if night temperatures are low or if frost is imminent.
FARMCO FLOXXY used alone is rainfast one hour after application.
DO not roll or harrow 7 days before or after treatment.
Wash equipment thoroughly with water and detergent immediately after use.
Traces of FARMCO FLOXXY can cause harm to susceptible crops sprayed later.
