Contains 200 g/l fluroxypyr (acid equivalent) present as 288 g/l 1-methyl heptyl ester with solvent naphtha (petroleum), light aromatic
An emulsifiable concentrate formulation for the control of cleavers, chickweed and certain other annual broad-leaved weeds, in wheat, barley, oats, rye, triticale. For the control of common chickweed in newly sown grass leys, docks in grassland and black nightshade in maize.

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.

The top growth of volunteer potatoes when in the height range 10-40 cm, optimum 15cm, can be severely stunted by a timely application of Flurox 200 at 2 l/ha. Complete control of potato top growth will not be obtained. The use of the higher dose for this purpose results in restrictions on straw disposal and use and future cropping of the land. Straw disposal: straw must be removed from the field after harvest; it may be used only for fuel or livestock bedding with the manure produced being spread on land to be cropped with cereals or grass for the next 12 months. 
Future cropping: crops highly susceptible to fluroxypyr, such as clovers, peas, beans and other legumes, must not be sown in the growing season following this application. Other cautions: do not apply in any tank-mixture when using at 2 l/ha. Do not overlap spray swaths.

Treatment controls only those weeds emerged at the time of spraying. Later germinating weeds are not controlled. It is important for optimum control that treatment coincides with good growing weather producing active growth, especially for the control of cleavers. Best results are obtained against small weeds in vigorous crops growing under warm, moist conditions.

Do not treat crops undersown with clover or other legume mixtures; legumes will be killed. Crops undersown only with grasses may be treated, provided that the grasses are well established and are tillering

(BCPC definitions) Apply as a MEDIUM spray at 2-2.5 bar (30-35 psi), using the higher volume when crop cover is dense or when chickweed and other weeds are large or numerous. Spray accurately and avoid spray drift onto neighbouring crops. When spot treating weeds in grassland, apply sufficient spray to wet the weed foliage without run-off.

Water l/ha
Small-grain cereals 170-340
Forage and grain maize 200-300
Newly sown grass leys 200-400
Established grassland 300-400

Spot treatment can be used in grassland situations where weed populations are low. Apply with a knapsack sprayer or suitable hand-held lance from a tractor mounted sprayer. It is advised to use Floodjets to prevent spray drift. Apply 30 ml of product per 10 litres of water. Ensure weeds are throughly wetted, but don’t spray until run-off

Avoid application to wet foliage, if rain is expected within 2-3 hours or during periods of frost. Application should not be made to crops under stress due to high temperatures, frost, drought, waterlogging, nutrient deficiency, severe pest or disease attack or any other factor. Do not spray during periods when night temperatures are low. Do not spray in windy weather, avoid spray drift onto non-target plants and crops.

Do not use Flurox 200 on crops grown for seed production.

Full compliance must be kept with the label recommendations of the partner product, together with the recommendations and conditions of this label. No tank mixture can be recommended when the product is to be applied at 2 l/ha.

Apply through tractor mounted sprayers. Ensure sprayers are clean, in good working order and have been calibrated according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Add the required quantity of Flurox 200 to the spray tank already half-filled with water and under agitation. Top up the tank with water and continue agitation until the tank is sprayed out. Normally, when tank-mixing with suspension concentrates and water dispersible granule formulations, add Flurox 200 to the spray tank last.

Do not roll or harrow for at least 7 days before or after treatment

Crops highly susceptible to fluroxypyr, such as clovers, peas, beans and other legumes, must not be sown in the growing season following an application of 2 litres product per ha

After each days use, wash out the sprayer thoroughly with water and wetting agent. Traces of herbicide left in the sprayer may damage susceptible crops sprayed with the equipment later

Certain weeds may develop resistance. To avoid this follow guidelines on preventing and managing herbicide resistant weeds, and in particular using herbicides with alternative modes of action and monitor weeds to check resistance. Stockton are not liable for any loss, damage or resistance issues, as such circumstances are beyond their control.
