Important Notes
Add the correct quantity of Hempacide 30 to half the required volume of clean water, mix thoroughly, then add the rest of the water and continue to agitate gently until spraying begins.
Hempacide 30 should not be used shortly before or after the sowing of any crop.
The crop should not be rolled or harrowed within a period of seven days before or after spraying.
Spraying should be carried out during good growing conditions. Do not spray in cold weather, during a drought or when rain is imminent.
Avoid damage by drift onto susceptible crops. Beet, Turnips, Swedes, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Vines and Fruit are particularly susceptible. To avoid drift, do not spray in windy weather.

Directions for use
Cereals
Use Hempacide 30 at a rate of 2-4 pints per acre (3-5.5 litres/hectare) in 20-40 gallons of water per acre (225 450 litres/hectare). All cereals must be sprayed before the 1st node detectable stage i.e. Zadocks GS 31. Spring wheat and barley can be sprayed from the 5 leaf stage of growth but before 1st node detectable. Spring oats can be sprayed from the 3 leaf stage but before 1st node detectable. Winter wheat, barley and oats should be sprayed in the spring when the crop has fully tillered but before the 1st node detectable stage of growth.

Application rate in cereals
2 pints per acre (3 litres/hectare) to control Charlock, Fathen, Corn Buttercup, Wild Mustard, Wild Radish, Penny Cress.
4 pints per acre (5.5 litres/hectare) to control Corn Poppy, Hempnettle, Orache, Sow Thistle, Shepards Purse, Forget Me Not, Annual Nettle, Creeping Thistle and Docks.

Grassland
Hempacide 30 should only be applied to established grassland. Do not apply to newly established leys, i.e. grass less than 1 year old. Apply when there is good growth and sufficient leaf area on the weeds to absorb the chemical. On established grassland use Hempacide 30 at a rate of 4-6 pints per acre (5.5-8.5 litres/hectare) in 20-40 gallons of water per acre (225-450 litres/hectare).
