GlyphoFIT 36 SL
A foliar applied herbicide for the control of annual and perennial grass and broad-leaved weeds before sowing or planting all crops. For pre-harvest use in cereals and certain crops, destruction of grassland and in set-aside, stubbles, orchards, forestry and non-crop areas. For uses on hard surfaces (including railway ballast).
GlyphoFIT 36 SL is taken up by foliage and translocated to underground roots, rhizomes and stolons, providing control of both annual and perennial grasses and broad-leaved weeds. GlyphoFIT 36 SL is rapidly adsorbed onto particulate matter in soils and water and is quickly degraded by the microorganisms present in soil and aquatic bottom sediments. Until degraded, the active ingredient in GLYPHOFIT 36 SL, glyphosate, is practically immobile in soils and is, therefore, unlikely to contaminate groundwate.
Symptoms on the weeds:
Symptoms of treatment are generally first seen 7-10 days, or longer (if growth is slow), after spraying. These take the form of leaf reddening followed by yellowing and are usually quicker to appear on grasses than on broad-leaved weeds. Reaction of nettles is slow.
Effects of weather:
See Directions for Use (Restrictions). GlyphoFIT 36 SL will remain efficacious at low but not freezing temperatures however the onset of symptoms will be delayed. A covering of dew may reduce efficacy where run-off occurs. Reduced control is likely where natural senescence, drought, high temperature, a covering of dust, flooding or severe/prolonged frost at, or immediately after, application impairs weed growth.
Applications of lime, fertiliser, farmyard manure and pesticides should be delayed until 5 days AFTER application of GlyphoFIT 36 SL.
Take extreme care to avoid drift, particularly when using near or alongside hedgerows. The use of low drift nozzles such as ‘air induction’ and ‘preorifice’ nozzles are recommended. After application, large concentrations of decaying foliage, stolons, roots or rhizomes should be dispersed or buried by thorough cultivation before crop drilling.
GlyphoFit 36 SL is a foliar acting herbicide which controls annual and perennial grasses and most broad-leaved weeds when used as directed. It is important that all weeds are at the correct growth stage when treated, otherwise some re-growth may occur and this will need re-treatment. Apply GlyphoFit 36 SL herbicide once grasses and broad-leaved weeds have emerged and they have ACTIVELY GROWING green leaves.
- PERENNIAL GRASSES must have a full emergence of healthy, green leaf. (Common Couch, for example, becomes susceptible at the onset of tillering and new rhizome growth commences which usually occurs when plants have 4-5 leaves, each with 10 - 15 cm of new growth).
- PERENNIAL BROAD-LEAVED WEEDS are most susceptible around the flowering stage.
- BRACKEN should be treated after frond tips are unfurled, but pre-sene scene.
- ANNUAL GRASSES AND BROAD-LEAVED WEEDS should have at least 5cm of leaf, or 2 expanded true leaves, respectively. In set-aside, annual grasses are best treated at full ear emergence, or before stem elongation. Application during stem extension phase of annual grasses e.g. blackgrass and brome species on set-aside between the end of April and end of May, may result in poor control and require retreatment.
- OTHER SPECIES – Application recommendation for specific Areas of Use are given in the Application Tables section of this label.
This product will not give an acceptable level of control of Horsetails (Equisetum arvense) - repeat treatment will be necessary.
Upon soil adsorption the herbicidal properties of GlyphoFIT 36 SL are lost permitting the drilling of crops 48 hours after application. Planting of trees, shrubs etc may take place 7 days after application. Grass seed may be sown from 5 days after treatment; see the “Recommendation Tables” for specific restrictions on direct-drilled crops.
Mixing and spraying:
GlyphoFit 36 SL mixes readily with water and can be applied in spray volumes ranging from 80 - 400 l/ha using tractor mounted, knapsack, rotary atomisers and hand-held sprayers. Specialised application equipment such as weed wipers, stem injection and spot gun applicators may be used where indicated. Correctly calibrate all sprayers under field or use conditions prior to application.
GlyphoFIT 36 SL is compatible in tank-mixes with High Trees Wayfarer1 - only for specific areas of use (0.5 litres of High Trees Wayfarer1 per 100 litres of spray solution).
Weed resistance strategy:
There is low risk for the development of weed resistance to GlyphoFIT 36 SL. Strains of some annual weeds (e.g. blackgrass, wild oats and Italian ryegrass) have developed resistance to herbicides, which may lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted. This should include integrating herbicides with a programme of cultural control measures. The Weed Resistance Action Group has produced guidelines and copies are available from the HGCA, CPA and your distributor or crop adviser: Growers are encouraged to implement a weed resistance strategy based on (a) Good Agricultural Practices and (b) Good Plant Protection Practices by: Following label recommendations.
The adoption of complementary weed control practices Minimising the risk of spreading weed infestations The implementation of good spraying practice to maintain effective weed control Using the correct nozzles to maximise coverage Application only under appropriate weather conditions Monitoring performance and reporting.
