Active materials

A suspension concentrate containing 500 g/l (44.6% w/w) isoproturon.
For the control of annual-grass and broad-leaved weeds in winter, spring wheat, winter barley, spring barley, triticale and rye.

Do not apply to durum wheat, undersown cereals or those due to be undersown.
Do not allow direct spray from ground crop sprayers to fall within 5 m of the top of the bank of astatic or flowing water body. Direct spray away from water.
Avoid spray drift onto neighbouring crops
Avoid overlapping spray swaths
Thoroughly wash all spraying and measuring equipment immediately after use.

FARMCO IPU can be applied before or after weed emergence. Weed control is by root uptake and foliar action.

Where these weeds are present FARMCO IPU can be tank-mixed with a suitable herbicide. Consult product label and / or your crop advisor.
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 resistant to a herbicide if it survives a correctly-applied treatment at the recommended dose.
Development of resistance within a weed species can be avoided or delayed by alternating, sequencing or tank mixing with suitable products having a different mode of action. Some populations of black-grass have been identified as being susceptible to Enhanced Metabolism
Resistance (EMR) and control with FARMCO IPU could therefore be reduced. In these situations additional control measures may need to be considered (e.g. sequences or mixtures with products that have a different mode of action).

Consult your agronomist for up to date guidance on chemical and integrated control measures that may be appropriate on a local basis.
A strategy for preventing and managing resistance should be adopted.

Winter and spring wheat, winter and spring barley, rye and triticale
Post emergence only in autumn, winter or spring
Maximum Individual Dose: 3.0 l / product / ha

Maximum Total Dose: 3.0 l / product / ha
Apply in the autumn or spring post-emergence of crop until before second node detectable stage of crop growth (GS32).
The residual action of FARMCO IPU will be reduced on soils with more than 10% organic matter and application on these soils should only be made in the spring.
All commercially available varieties of winter wheat (excluding durum), winter barley, spring wheat, spring barley, rye and triticale can be treated with FARMCO IPU. Early sown crops e.g.
September drilled, may be prone to damage if spraying should precede or coincide with a period of rapid growth in the autumn.
Apply in 200 to 400 l water/ha

Pressure: 2-3 bar
Spray quality: MEDIUM

If crop failure occurs for whatever reason following application of FARMCO IPU, an interval of 90 days after autumn application or 30 days after spring application should occur before planting any broad-leaved crop. Deep ploughing should be carried out prior to planting any succeeding crop.

All the requirements or restrictions on other product labels must be adhered to when tank mixing with FARMCO IPU, which should be added to the tank first when mixing with other products.
Continuous agitation must be main
tained. This product may only be used in a tank mix or in sequence with other products when these uses comply with the label recommendations of every product in the tank mix / sequence.
