04472

A selective post-emergence herbicide for use on winter and spring cereals, forage and grain maize, grassland (permanent and new leys), rotational grass to control a range of perennial and annual weeds, including cleavers, common chickweed, red dead-nettle, black-bindweed, forget-me-not, common hemp-nettle, knotgrass and black nightshade.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE of GAT STAKE 20 EC,
PCS No.: 04472:
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.

When the product is applied as a spot treatment to permanent grassland, rotational grass and newly sown grass leys the maximum concentration must not exceed 30ml product per 10 litres water.
Livestock must be kept out of treated areas for at least three 3 days following treatment and until poisonous weeds such as ragwort have died and become unpalatable.

Winter wheat and winter barley:
GAT STAKE 20 EC at 2.0l/ha severely stunts top growth of volunteer potatoes at 10-40 cm, optimum 15 cm height. Complete control of potato top growth will not be obtained.
Established grassland: GAT STAKE 20 EC at 2.0l/ha controls broadleaved docks at the rosette stage.
Newly sown grass leys: GAT STAKE 20 EC at 0.75l/ha controls common chickweed up to 5 cm high or across.

NOTES:
For best results apply GAT STAKE 20 EC when weeds are actively growing. In newly-sown crops, seedling and small weeds are more susceptible to GAT STAKE 20 EC and will respond quicker when treated at this stage. Vigorous crop competition enhances control of the more resistant weeds and prevents weeds which germinate after application from becoming a problem in the crop.
Crops undersown with grass may be sprayed provided the grasses are tillering.
Do not apply to crops undersown with clover or other legume-containing mixtures.
GAT STAKE 20 EC will only produce optimum results when the weeds are actively growing and the crop is competitive. This is particularly important with cleavers, especially where HBN’s are not included in the tank mix. GAT STAKE 20 EC is of low volatility and is therefore not subject to vapour drift.
Do not spray in windy weather and avoid drift onto non-target crops/ areas.
Do not treat crops under stress. Stress can be caused by many factors including frost, drought, water logging, trace element deficiency, disease and pest attack etc.
Do not spray if night temperatures are low or if frost is imminent.
GAT STAKE 20 EC used is rainfast one hour after application. Do not roll or harrow 7 days before or after treatment.
Traces of GAT STAKE 20 EC can cause harm to susceptible crops sprayed later.
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:
Add the appropriate amount of GAT STAKE 20 EC to clean water in a halffilled sprayer tank, mix thoroughly and add the remainder of the water. The spray mix must be used immediately and agitated continuously during mixing and until application is complete.

Method of application: Tractor mounted / trailed sprayer / Knapsack
The recommended spray volume is 150 to 400 litres of water per hectare. The lowest water volume should only be used in very open crops on small weeds. On later applications where the crop is dense, the spray volume should be increased to 400 litres water per hectare. The minimum recommended pressure is 2 to 3 bars.

CEREALS
SPRING APPLICATION TO WINTER CEREALS
Winter wheat, winter barley, winter oats, winter rye, triticale and durum wheat

Crops and timing
Winter wheat and winter barley
GAT STAKE 20 EC can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop but before late boot stage (GS 45)
Winter oats, winter rye, and triticale and durum wheat
GAT STAKE 20 EC can be used on winter oats, winter rye, and triticale and durum wheat from the two leaf stage of the crop but before the first node detectable stage (GS 31)

SPRING APPLICATION TO SPRING CEREALS
Spring wheat, spring barley and spring oats.

Crops and timing
Spring wheat and spring barley
GAT STAKE 20 EC can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop but before the flag leaf stage (GS 39).
Spring oats
GAT STAKE 20 EC can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop but before the first node detectable stage (GS 31).

VOLUNTEER POTATO CONTROL - WINTER WHEAT AND WINTER BARLEY ONLY
Warnings
These warnings apply only for this high rate recommendation of 2.0 litre/ ha of GAT STAKE 20 EC. They do not apply where GAT STAKE 20 EC is used at the standard rates for annual broad-leaved weed control (0.5 to 1.0 litre/ha).
Avoid overlapping spray bouts.
Straw from cereals treated at these rates and timings with GAT STAKE 20 EC may contain residues which could damage certain crops. Straw must not be incorporated back into the soil. When straw is disposed of by baling and carting it should be used only for animal bedding. Manure from such animal bedding should be used on or before cereal or grass crops only.

Do not plant winter beans or other legumes in the same year as this treatment with GAT STAKE 20 EC.
Do not plant peas or other legumes in the spring following this treatment.
Do not tank mix GAT STAKE 20 EC with any other product when used as recommended above.

Notes
GAT STAKE 20 EC at 2.0l/ha severely stunts top growth of volunteer potatoes at 10-40 cm, optimum 15 cm height. Complete control of potato top growth will not be obtained.
GAT STAKE 20 EC will only affect shoots which have emerged at the time of spraying. However, a good degree of stunting can be expected, which will reduce the competitive threat posed to these crops by this weed. Because volunteer potatoes can emerge over an extended period, sprays applied later in the recommended period will give better results. The main factors for obtaining successful results are that there is sufficient actively growing green foliage on the potatoes and that good coverage of this foliage is achieved, for example by use of sufficiently high water volumes. In addition to the control of volunteer potato haulm this use of GAT STAKE 20 EC will give a useful reduction in the viability of daughter tubers.

Rate of use and water volume
Apply GAT STAKE 20 EC at 2.0 litres/ha in 300 to 400 litres water per hectare.

Timing
Apply GAT STAKE 20 EC anytime from the third node detectable stage of crop but before late boot stage (GS 45).

FORAGE MAIZE and GRAIN MAIZE
Notes
Avoid boom overlap

Weeds controlled
GAT STAKE 20 EC will control black nightshade from cotyledons up to 4 true leaves. It will not control black nightshade which has not emerged at the time of application.

Rate of use and water volume
Apply GAT STAKE 20 EC at 1.0 litre/ha in 200-300 litres of water per hectare.

Timing
Apply when maize is before 7 leaves unfolded stage (GS 17). Do not apply once the buttress roots (side roots) have started to develop on the first node.

GRASSLAND
NEWLY SOWN GRASS LEYS

Weeds controlled
GAT STAKE 20 EC at 0.75l/ha controls common chickweed up to 5 cm high or across

Rate of use and water volume
Apply GAT STAKE 20 EC at 0.75 litre/ha in a spray volume of 200 to 400 litres of water per hectare to give good coverage of the weed. Use the higher volume of water where weeds, especially common chickweed, are large at the time of spraying and where the grass is dense.

Timing
Application timing is crucial and GAT STAKE 20 EC should be applied when weeds are actively growing

Autumn application
Apply GAT STAKE 20 EC in early autumn when the grasses have at least 3 fully expanded leaves. Best control is achieved if GAT STAKE 20 EC is applied when the weeds are growing actively.
Spring application
Apply GAT STAKE 20 EC to newly sown spring leys when grasses have at least 3 fully expanded leaves.

PERMANENT GRASSLAND, ROTATIONAL GRASS
ESTABLISHED GRASS
Weeds controlled
GAT STAKE 20 EC at 2.0l/ha controls broad-leaved docks at the rosette stage.

Rate of use and water volume
Apply GAT STAKE 20 EC at 2.0 litres/ha in a spray volume of 300 to 400 litres of water per hectare to give good coverage of the weeds.

Timing
Application timing is crucial and GAT STAKE 20 EC should be applied when weeds are actively growing.
