Glyphosate G360 is a systemic herbicide, as a soluble concentrate, for the control of most broad-leaved and grass weeds.
Contains 360 g/l glyphosate as the isopropylamine salt formulated with ethoxylated tallow amine.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
GENERAL INFORMATION
Glyphosate G360 is a foliar acting herbicide that controls annual and perennial grasses and most broad-leaved weeds when used as directed. It is translocated from treated vegetative growth to underground roots, rhizomes or stolons. Leaf symptoms, being a reddening then yellowing of the foliage, are first seen on grass weeds but take longer to appear on broad leaved weeds.

It is particularly important that the weeds have sufficient leaf growth and are actively growing when treated. P
erennial grass weeds must have produced fresh leaves, which are green and vigorous. Common couch/scutch is most susceptible to Glyphosate G360 when it is tillering and when new rhizomes have begun to grow. This is usually when the plants have about 5 - 6 leaves, each with approximately 12-15cm of new growth.
The majority of perennial broad-leaved weeds are most susceptible if treated when they are actively growing and are at or near flowering stage. Annual weeds should be actively growing with grasses having at least 5cm of leaf and broad-leaved weeds at least two expanded true leaves when sprayed. Couch/scutch grasses and other grass and broad-leaved weeds are less susceptible to Glyphosate G360 when growth is restricted by drought, waterlogging, frost, very high temperatures or natural dieback. Efficacy will be reduced if such conditions occur at or immediately after spraying.
Occasionally a slight check to crop growth may occur, particularly after direct drilling when crop seeds germinate amongst a mass of decaying foliage, stolons, rhizomes or roots. Thorough cultivations are necessary to disperse or bury decaying organic matter. Consolidate loose soils and ensure crops are adequately fertilised and appropriate measures are taken to prevent insect and fungal damage to the following crop, especially where following grassland.
Do not apply lime, fertiliser, farmyard manure, pesticides or similar materials within 7 days of Glyphosate G360

WEED CONTROL IN STANDING CEREAL CROPS (PRE-HARVEST)
Crops: Winter and spring wheat including durum wheat, and winter and spring oats destined for milling or feed. Winter and spring barley destined for malting or feed. (Consult purchasers of crops grown on contract and prospective purchasers of malting grade barley before treatment). Do not treat crops intended for seed. Do not treat undersown crops

Time  Spray when the moisture content of the grain measures less than 30%. Target weeds must be green, actively growing and accessible to the spray. Method Spray the crop and weeds overall. Use high clearance tractors with narrow wheels and crop dividers. Adjust boom height to maximise spray retention on the target weeds. After spraying: Wait at least 7 days before harvesting. Treated straw may be used for feed and litter, but must not be used for horticultural purposes, or must be chopped and incorporated or removed, after which normal cultivations may be resumed. Dose Rate Low levels of couch/scutch grasses (0-25 shoots/m): 2 l/ha Medium levels of couch/scutch grasses (25-75 shoots/m): 3 l/ha High levels of couch/scutch grasses (75 plus shoots/m): 4 l/ha Apply in 80-250 l/ha water.

Note: to gain successful control of onion couch with Glyphosate G360, the weed must be treated BEFORE the bulbous bases have matured. Application when the bulbous bases have matured will not prevent regeneration of the weed. Early ripening winter barley is the only crop likely to present an oppportunity for pre-harvest control of onion couch.

WEED CONTROL IN STANDING OILSEED RAPE AND LINSEED (PRE-HARVEST)
Time Spray 2-3 weeks before harvest when the natural ripening of the seed is progressing and the moisture content of the seed measures less than 30%. Target weeds must be green, actively growing and accessible to the spray. Method Spray the crop and weeds overall. Minimise crop damage by use of suitable equipment. After spraying: Wait at least 14 days before harvesting. Direct combine harvest the crop when fit. Treated straw must be chopped/ incorporated or removed, after which normal cultivations may be resumed. Dose Rate Low-medium couch/scutch grass infestations (0-25 shoots/m): 3 l/ha Medium-high couch/scutch grass infestations (25-75 shoots/m): 4 l/ha Apply in 200-250 l/ha water.

WEED CONTROL IN FIELD BEANS AND PEAS (PRE-HARVEST)
Time Spray when the natural ripening of the seed is progressing and the moisture content of the seed measures less than 30%. Target weeds must be green, actively growing and accessible to the spray. Method Spray the crop and weeds overall. Minimise crop damage by use of high clearance tractors with narrow wheels and crop dividers. After spraying: Wait at least 7 days before harvesting. Direct combine harvest the crop when fit. Treated straw must be chopped and incorporated or removed, after which normal cultivations may be resumed. Dose Rate Low-medium couch/scutch grass infestations up to 75 shoots/m: 3 l/ha Medium-high couch/scutch grass infestations over 75 shoots/m: 4 l/ha Apply in 200-250 l/ha water.

ORCHARDS
Crop Established (minimum 2 years) trees of: Apple Pear Cherry Damson Plum Time and Method Apply as a directed MEDIUM or COARSE spray. Spray after leaf fall in autumn or before green cluster stage of apple and pear or white bud stage of stone fruit. Avoid spraying or allowing drift to contact the trunk above 30cm (12”) from the ground, or any branches. Spray must not contact any damaged bark. Dose Rate 5 l/ha in 250 l/ha water.

STUBBLE - ANNUAL AND PERENNIAL WEEDS, VOLUNTEERS
Time Autumn/winter applications: Spray when perennial weeds are actively growing, especially after mid-October. Couch/scutch grass should have at least 6 new leaves approx. 12cm long.

Method After harvest: Do not cultivate. Remove straw. Allow weeds to regrow. Spray during mild conditions. Allow volunteer potatoes to make ample top growth and spray well before onset of frost or natural senescence.
Spring applications: Spray when weeds are actively growing as for autumn applications. Roots chopped by cultivations must show new leaf growth to be killed.
After spraying:
If before mid-November, wait at least 5 days before cultivating. If after mid-November, wait for perennial grass leaves to turn red/yellow before cultivating. 
Dose Rate Light-medium couch/scutch grass infestations: 3 l/ha Medium-high couch/scutch grass infestations, and volunteer potatoes: 4 l/ha Apply in 80-250 l/ha water
After harvest: • Cultivate as required. • Leave for regrowth to appear
After spraying: Wait at least 5 days before cultivating

STUBBLE/CULTIVATED LAND - ANNUAL WEEDS/VOLUNTEERS
Time  Autumn/spring/summer applications: Spray when weeds are actively growing.
For optimum control:Annual grasses should have at least 10cm of green leaf. Annual broad-leaved weeds should have at least 2 true leaves. 
Method After harvest or cultivations: Allow ground to remain undisturbed for as long as practicable to allow weeds to regrow. After spraying: Wait at least 24 hours before cultivating. Wait at least 48 hours before drilling.
Dose Rate1.5 l/ha Apply in 80-250 l/ha water.

GRASSLAND
Time  Spray when grasses and weeds are actively growing at the following times and growth stages:
Annual grasses and annual broadleaved weeds: Spring, summer or autumn. Annual grasses have at least 10cm (4”) of green leaf. Annual broad-leaved weeds have at least 2 expanded true leaves.
Perennial grasses and perennial broad-leaved weeds: Mid to late summer. •erennial grasses have at least 12cm (5”) of leaf or 5 fully expanded leaves. • Perennial broad-leaved weeds have substantial leaf area or are near flowering.
Method Lightly cut or graze and allow regrowth for about 4 weeks until the recommended growth stages are reached. Spray at the dose rate recommended for the weed or grass type. Wait at least 5 days, when the leaves become yellowed, before removing the growth for conservation or by grazing as required, prior to cultivating or drilling.
Surface mats of old grassland must be thoroughly broken by cultivations before reseeding. Either defer seeding until the following spring to allow surface mats to decompose or apply 2.5 tonnes/ha (1 tonne/ac) of ground limestone to the surface mat not less than seven days after treatment followed by rotary cultivation to break the surface and incorporate the ground limestone into the soil. Seeding may be conducted as required thereafter provided that the seeds are in contact with mineral soil.
Dose Rate
1-2 years old, only annual weeds and grasses: 3 l/ha 2-4 years old, with perennial grasses: 4 l/ha Long leys e.g. 4-7 years old with perennial broad-leaved weeds: 5 l/ha Permanent grassland predominantly fine-leaved grasses: 6 l/ha Apply the recommended dose in 200-250 l/ha water.

WICK/WIPER APPLICATORS
Certain weeds, particularly those with an erect growth habit and having a spatial separation from desirable species, can be effectively controlled by wiping a concentrated solution of Glyphosate G360 onto the leaves or stems. Weeds must be actively growing at application.
Do not apply when rain is expected as, apart from unsatisfactory weed control, herbicide might be transferred to desirable species by rain splash or foliar contact.
Glysphosate G360 dilution
Humid conditions 1 volume Glyphosate G360: 1 volume water
Warm, dry conditions 1 volume Glyphosate G360: 2 volumes water

Caution
Ensure that there is a minimum 5 cm between the top of the tallest desired vegetation and the impregnated wiper.

OPTIMUM TIME TO SPRAY
As Glyphosate G360 is absorbed through the leaves and is translocated by the weeds own transport systems, it is particularly important that the weeds have sufficient leaf growth and are actively growing when treated.
Couch/scutch is most susceptible to Glyphosate G360 when it is tillering and when new rhizomes have begun to grow. This is usually when the plants have about 5-6 leaves, each with approximately 12-15 cm of new growth.
Couch/scutch grasses and other grass and broad-leaved weeds are less susceptible Glyphosate G360 when growth is restricted by drought, waterlogging, frost, very high temperatures or natural dieback.

MIXING
Pour the recommended quantity of Glyphosate G360 into the spray tank already half-filled with water. Top up the spray tank with water to the required level. Agitate thoroughly to mix the spray solution. Spray out on the day of mixing, maintaining agitation.
Do not mix, apply or store Glyphosate G360 in galvanised or unlined mild steel containers or tanks. Keep tanks well vented and clear of all sources of ignition.
RINSE CONTAINER THOROUGHLY by using an integrated pressure rinsing device or manually rinsing three times. Add washings to sprayer at time of filling and dispose of safely.

APPLICATION & SPRAY QUALITY
Prepared spray solution should be applied as a MEDIUM spray at nozzle pressures not exceeding 2.5 bar (35 psi). Glyphosate G360 is a systemic herbicide, active at low doses. Always take care to avoid spray drift. DO NOT SPRAY in windy weather or near to desirable species or amenity plants.

WEATHER
Avoid spraying if rain is expected within 12 hours. Applications are best made under dull, humid conditions. Weeds restricted by water stress may not be satisfactorily controlled. DO NOT spray during frosty weather or under windy conditions likely to result in spray drift.

SOILS
Glyphosate G360 may be used to control weeds on all mineral or organic soils or surfaces, including ash and gravel. Only weeds showing green leaf at the time of application can be killed. There is no residual activity with Glyphosate G360. Owing to soil variations, some couch/scutch grasses may not be at a susceptible stage when sprayed and the treatment should be repeated in the following autumn for complete control.

DECAYING VEGETATION
Occasionally a slight check to crop growth may occur, particularly after direct drilling when crop seeds germinate amongst a mass of decaying foliage, stolons, rhizomes or roots. Thorough cultivations are necessary to disperse or bury decaying organic matter. Consolidate loose soils and ensure crops are adequately fertilised and appropriate measures are taken to prevent insect and fungal damage to the following crop, especially where following grassland.

COMPATIBILITY
Glyphosate G360 may be applied in tank mix with other approved tallow amine ethoxylate surfactant. DO NOT apply lime, fertiliser, farmyard manure or similar materials within 7 days of Glyphosate G360.

FUTURE PLANTING
Glyphosate G360 has no long-lasting herbicidal activity in soils after application. Agricultural and horticultural quality soils with perennial grass and broad-leaved weed burdens may be planted up with trees after not less than 7 days after application. It is preferable to plant most amenity plants after the treated vegetation has died back or after cultivation lest they be contaminated or smothered by the collapsing weed vegetation. Under normal weather conditions, cultivations may be conducted 5 days after treatment. Under poor growing conditions wait for the characteristic red/yellow leaf symptoms to appear on perennial weeds before cultivating.

RESISTANT STRAINS
Strains of some annual grasses, e.g. black-grass, wild-oat and Italian rye-grass, have developed resistance to herbicides which may lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted. Guidelines are available from your distributor, crop advisor or product manufacturer.

CARE OF EQUIPMENT
Wash equipment thoroughly after use with water and cleaning agent to remove traces of herbicide. Traces of herbicide left in the equipment may damage crops sprayed later.
