Finy® is a water soluble granule formulation containing 200 g/kg metsulfuron-methyl. For the control of broad-leaved weeds in wheat, oats, triticale, barley, linseed and in set-aside land.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
FINY is a selective herbicide used for annual broad-leaved weed control in wheat, barley, oats, triticale and set-aside. It can be absorbed both through the roots and the foliage, and is rapidly translocated within the weed. It acts by stopping plant cell division and works quickly so that susceptible weeds stop growth almost immediately after post-emergence application, and are usually killed within 7-21 days depending upon weed species. Those weeds which are not killed will still generally give less competition to the crop. FINY will give most effective weed control when applied to weeds that are small, and actively growing at the time of application. FINY can be used on all soil types.

WEED RESISTANCE
When herbicides with the same mode of action are used repeatedly over several years in the same field strains of weeds resistant to herbicides may develop. Resistant species survive a correctly-applied treatment at the recommended dose. It is recommended that FINY is used as part of a cropping programme which includes the use of herbicides with different modes of action. Do not rely on one herbicide mode of action in the same field over several years.

Key aspects of the FINY weed resistance management strategy are:
Always follow the WRAG guidelines for preventing and managing herbicide resistance. Copies of the guidelines are available from the HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.
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.
Finy is a sulfonylurea herbicide whose mode of action is via ALS inhibition. Do not use Finy, or any other ALS inhibitor herbicide, as a sole means of broad-leaved weed control in successive crops.
Always use broad-leaved weed herbicides with non-ALS mode of action throughout the crop rotation.
Always monitor effectiveness of weed control and investigate any occurrences of poor effectiveness. If unexplained failure occurs, contact your agronomist who may consider a resistance test appropriate

RESTRICTIONS
Do not apply to crops which are under stress at time of application, eg. frost, really hot weather or when either is expected, nutrient or lime deficiency, pest or disease attack etc. Do not apply in sequence with any other product containing sulfonylurea herbicides. Do not roll or harrow within one week of application. Do not use on undersown crops or crops that will be undersown. Finy is extremely active at very low concentrations. It is important to avoid:
- overlap of spray swaths
- drift onto susceptible crops in neighbouring land
- drift onto surface waters and ditches
- draining of spraying equipment on land to be used for any crop except cereals

In cereals the application should not be made before 1st February. Do not apply more than once per crop per year.

TIMING OF APPLICATION
Wheat and oats
Apply from the 2 leaf stage to before the flag leaf sheath extending stage (GS 39).
Barley and triticale
Apply from 3 leaf stage to before flag leaf sheath extending stage (GS 39).

Linseed
Apply from first pair of true leaves unfolded until before flower buds visible up to 30 cm tall, whichever is the sooner. Allow an interval of 10 days before applying other pesticides if the crop is growing poorly or is under stress

COMPATIBILITY
The range of weeds controlled by FINY can be improved by the addition of a suitable herbicide to the spray tank. The additional herbicide should only be tank mixed if the partner product can be applied within the label recommendations for its use. When tank mixing, ensure that FINY is dispersed prior to adding the partner product. Weeds such as cleavers, fumitory and speedwell are better controlled by the use of a low rate partner product with FINY. For further information, contact UPL Europe Ltd. or your local distributor. In linseed FINY should not be tank-mixed. In wheat and barley FINY can be applied alone or in mixture. Do not use FINY in tank-mix on oats and triticale. It is important to follow the recommendations of the mixture product as well as FINY, and always add the FINY to the spray tank first. Do not mix with chlorpyrifos. Allow at least 14 days between FINY and chlorpyrifos treatments.
Apply FINY alone, or in mixture to crops which are healthy at the time of application and suffering no stress or deficiencies.

Sequential Application with sulfonylurea or other ‘ALS inhibiting herbicides’.
FINY may be applied in sequence with approved formulations of ONE of the following sulfonylurea or ALS inhibiting herbicide products. IMPORTANT: SEQUENTIAL APPLICATIONS MUST BE MADE WITHIN THE LABEL RECOMMENDATIONS OF ALL PRODUCTS IN THE SEQUENCE.

Florasulam (2) Florasulam/Fluroxypyr/ Clopyralid (2) Florasulam/Pyroxsulam (2) Amidosulfuron (1) Flupyrsulfuron-methyl/Cafrentrazone (3) Flupyrsulfuron-methyl (3) Flupyrsulfuron-methyl/Thifensulfuron-methyl (3) Florasulam/Fluroxypyr (2) Mesosulfuron-methyl/Iodosulfuron meythyl sodium (2) (1) Only cereals (wheat, barley, oats, rye, triticale) or potatoes as following crop. (2) Only winter wheat as following crop; minimum 21 days replant interval. (3) No additional follow-crop restrictions other than for Finy alone.

FOLLOWING CROPS
Only cereals should be planted within 16 months of applying FINY to a linseed crop or to green cover on land not being used for crop production. In same calendar year only sow wheat, barley, rye, triticale, oilseed rape, field beans and grass to succeed a cereal crop treated with FINY. Refer to‘Compatability’ section for specific advice concerning following crops permitted after use of FINY with other sulphonylurea and‘ALS inhibiting’herbicides.

MIXING AND SPRAYING
Ensure sprayer is clean, in good working order and calibrated prior to use. Quarter fill the spray tank with clean water and begin agitation. Add the required amount of Finy to the spray tank. Add the remainder of the water and continue agitation during spraying. When using in a tank mix, always add Finy to the spray tank first and ensure it is completely dispersed before adding the partner product.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER SPRAYING IS COMPLETE, WASH OUT THE SPRAYER WITH WATER AND SUITABLE TANK WASHING PRODUCT TO ENSURE THAT THE EQUIPMENT IS COMPLETELY DECONTAMINATED. TRACES OF FINY REMAINING IN OR ON THE SPRAY TANK MAY RESULT IN DAMAGE TO CROPS SPRAYED LATER.

Dispose of tank wash safely and do not spray on to susceptible crops or land intended for planting with susceptible crops. Apply Finy alone, or in mixture to crops which are healthy at the time of application and suffering no stress or deficiencies.

SPRAY TANK CLEAN OUT
To avoid subsequent damage to crops other than cereals, immediately after spraying Finy thoroughly clean all spray equipment including inside and outside of lid, using suitable cleaning agent according to the label instructions. Alternatively use the following procedure:
1. Immediately after spraying, drain tank completely. Any contamination of the outside of the spraying equipment should be removed by washing with clean water. 2. Rinse inside of tank with clean water and flush through boom and hoses using at least one-tenth of the spray tank volume. Drain tank completely.
3. Half fill tank with clean water and add 1/3 litres household ammonia (contains 9.5% ammonia) for each 100 litres of tank volume. (Equivalent amounts of alternate strength ammonia solutions can be used providing the final concentration in the full tank is 0.03%). Agitate and then flush the boom and hoses with the cleaning solution. Top up with water making sure the tank is completely full and allow to stand for 15 minutes with agitation. Again flush the boom and hoses and drain tank completely.
4. Nozzles and filters should be removed and cleaned separately with ammonia solution at the same concentration as used for the sprayer.
5. Rinse the tank with clean water and flush through the boom and hoses using at least one tenth of the spray tank volume. Drain tank completely.
6. For disposal of washings follow the Green Code: ‘Code of Practice for the Safe Use of Pesticides on Farms and Holdings’. Do not spray on to sensitive crops or land intended for cropping with a sensitive crop.
