A soloble granule formulation containing 200 g/kg metsulfuron-methyl for spring weedcontrol in wheat, oats, barley, triticale, linseed and green cover on land temporarily removed from production.

REBEL XT must only be applied from 1 February, provided the crop has at least two leaves (wheat, oats, and triticale) or three leaves (barley), until before the flag leaf extending stage.

Apply REBEL XT at 30 g/ha when used alone or in tank-mix with other herbicides.

Only cereals, oilseed rape, field beans or grass may be sown in the same calendar year to succeed a cereal crop treated with REBEL XT.

REBEL XT should be applied to actively growing linseed (all varieties) from the growth stage "first pair of true leaves unfolded", up to 30 cm high or before flower buds visible, whichever comes first.
Most annual weeds are best controlled by the earliest application possible.

Apply REBEL XT at 30 g/ha.

Only cereals should be planted within 16 months of applying REBEL XT to a linseed crop.

REBEL XT can be used for broad-leaved weed control in set-aside land within current guidelines and in accordance with the following instructions. Apply REBEL XT at 30 g/ha in 200 litres of water/ha. Only one application of a sulfonylurea-containing product must be made per calendar year to set-aside areas.
Farmco Rebel XT must not be applied after 1st August in the year of application.

Only cereals or grass may be sown in the same calendar year to set-aside land treated with REBEL XT.

- REBEL XT alone or in tank-mix, must not be applied to any crop suffering from stress as a result of drought, waterlogging, low temperatures, pest or disease attack, nutrient or lime deficiency or other factors reducing crop growth.
- Do not use REBEL XT on cereal crops undersown with grasses, clover or other legumes or any other broad- leaved crop.
- Do not apply REBEL XT to any cereal crop in sequence or in tank mixture with a product containing any other sulfonylurea or ‘ALS inhibiting’ herbicide except:
- flupyrsulfuron methyl
- flupyrsulfuron methyl in combination with carfentrazone
- flupyrsulfuron methyl in combination with thifensul- furon methyl
- REBEL XT should not be applied within 7 days of rolling the crop.
- Do not tank-mix REBEL XT with chlorpyrifos. Allow at least 14 days between application of REBEL XT and chlorpyrifos treatments.
- Do not use REBEL XT in tank-mix on oats, triticale or linseed. Allow at least 7 days between REBEL XT and other treatments (10 days if crop is growing poorly or under stress).
- Contract agents should be consulted before using on crops grown for seed.
- Due to the high level of activity of the herbicide, spe- cial care must be taken to avoid damage by drift onto broad-leaved plants outside the target area, or onto ponds, waterways or ditches. Thorough cleansing of equipment is also very important – see below.
- Following Crops - Only cereals, oilseed rape, field beans or grass may be sown in the same calendar year to succeed a cereal crop treated with REBEL XT
- Crop Failure - In the event of crop failure for any rea- son, sow only wheat within 3 months of the application of REBEL XT.

REBEL XT, is a highly active herbicide with foliar and root activity against a wide range of broadleaved weeds. It is most effective when applied to small active- ly growing weeds. As larger weeds often become less susceptible, it is important to note the size of each weed species at the time of application. Good spray cover of the weeds must be obtained. Weed control may be reduced when soil conditions are very dry. Nevertheless, with adequate soil moisture, susceptible weeds germi- nating soon after treatment will be controlled.

Weed Resistance:
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 consid- ered 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 sequencing or tank-mixing with suitable products having a different mode of action.
** For the control of Common chickweed, this product must always be applied in a mixture with an alternate mode of action herbicide at recommended rates. A strategy for preventing and managing resistance should be adopted. Further details and advice on how to imple- ment such a strategy may be obtained from your crop adviser or supplier.

REBEL XT can be used on all soil types.

Apply in 100 - 200 litres of water per hectare, using suitable equipment to give good spray cover of the weeds. When crops are thick or weed growth dense, use 400 litres of water per hectare. When applying REBEL XT, care should be taken not to overlap spray swaths


- Before using REBEL XT, make sure that the spraying equipment is clean.
- When using REBEL XT in a tank-mix, always add REBEL XT to the spray tank first. REBEL XT mixes easily with water, but the following mixing procedure should be followed: quarter fill the spray tank with water, start the agitation and add the required quantity of REBEL XT directly to the tank without prior creaming. Continue agitation while topping up the tank and while spraying.

To widen the spectrum of activity and improve the control of some weeds, REBEL XT may be tankmixed with other herbicides. Products should only be tank-mixed if each product can be applied within the label recommendations for its use.
When using REBEL XT in a tank-mix, always add REBEL XT to the spray tank first. Do not use any product in a tank-mix if the mixture cannot be applied within the recommendations for all the separate ingredients. Before applying in tank-mix with any other product, consult your supplier.

CROP SAFETY: REBEL XT can be used on all winter and spring varieties of wheat, oats, barley and triticale between the growth stages given below.
