DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. It is advisable to read all the instruction s within this section carefully in order to obtain safe and successful use of this product.
DO NOT MIX, STORE OR APPLY HY-GLO 360 IN GALVANISED OR UNLINED STEEL CONTAINERS OR SPRAY TANKS.
EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO AVOID SPRAY DRIFT AS THIS CAN SEVERELY DAMAGE OR DESTROY NEIGHBOURING CROPS OR PLANTS.
DO NOT leave spray mixtures in tank for long periods.
A period of at least 6 hours and preferably 24 hours rain-free must follow application of HY-GLO 360. Do not spray in windy conditions as drift onto desired crops or vegetation could severely damage or destroy them. Do not spray onto weeds which are naturally senescent, or where growth is impaired by drought, high temperatures, a covering of dust, flooding or frost at, or immediately after application, otherwise poor control may result. Applications of lime, fertilizer, farmyard manure and pesticides should be delayed until 5 days after application of HY-GLO 360. After application, large concentrations of decaying foliage, stolons, roots or rhizomes should be dispersed or buried by thorough cultivation before crop drilling.
HY-GLO 360 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 appropriate stage when treated, otherwise some re-growth may occur which would need retreatment. Apply HY-GLO 360 herbicide once grasses and broad-leaved weeds have emerged and they have ACTIVELY GROWING green leaves.
- PERENNIAL BROAD-LEAVED WEEDS are most susceptible at the flowering stage.
- PERENNIAL GRASSES must have a full emergence of healthy, green leaf. For example, common couch becomes susceptible at the onset of tillering and then new rhizome growth commences, which usually occurs when plants have 4 -5 leaves with 10 - 15 cm of new growth. ANNUAL GRASSES AND BROAD-LEAVED WEEDS should have at least 5 cm of leaf, or 2 expanded true leaves, respectively. In setaside, annual grasses are best treated at full ear emergence, or before stem elongation. Application during the stem extension phase of annual grasses e.g. Black-grass and Brome species on set aside between the end of April and end of May, may result in poor control and require re-treatment.
- BRACKEN should be treated after frond tips are unfurled, but pre-senescence.
- OTHER SPECIES - recommendations for specific Areas of Use are given in the Recommendation Tables. This product will not give an acceptable level of control of Horsetails (Equisetum arvense
Upon soil adsorption the herbicidal properties of HY-GLO 360 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. Refer to the 'Recommendation Tables' for specific restrictions on direct drilled crops
Weed Resistance Strategy
There is low risk for the development of weed resistance to HY-GLO 360. Strains of some annual weeds (e.g. Black-grass, 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. Guidelines have been produced by the Weed Resistance Action Group and copies are available from the HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer, Sharda Europe bvba. 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
- Monitoring performance and reporting any unexpected results to Sharda Europe bvba.
- Minimizing the risk of spreading weed infestations - The implementation of good spraying practice to maintain effective weed control
- The adoption of complimentary weed control practices
- Using the correct nozzles to maximize coverage
- Application only under appropriate weather conditions
It is essential to thoroughly clean-out spray tanks, pumps and pipelines and nozzle or disc assemblies, with a recommended detergent cleaner, between applying this product and other pesticides to avoid contamination from pesticide residues. Traces of HY-GLO 360 left in the equipment may seriously damage or destroy crops sprayed later
Applications of lime, fertilizer, farmyard manure and pesticides should be delayed until 5 days after application of HY-GLO 360
After application, large concentrations of decaying foliage, stolons, roots or rhizomes should be dispersed or buried by thorough cultivation before crop drilling. Take extreme care to avoid drift, particularly when using near hedgerows. The use of low drift nozzles such as 'air induction' and 'pre-orifice' nozzles are recommended.

COMPANY ADVISORY INFORMATION
This section is not part of the Product Label under the Plant Protection Products Regulations 1995 and provides additional advice on the product.
HY-GLO 360 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. HY-GLO 360 s rapidly adsorbed onto particulate matter in soils and water and is quickly degraded by the micro-organism present in soil and aquatic bottom sediments. Until degraded, the active ingredient in HY-GLO 360, glyphosate, is practically immobile in soils and is, therefore, unlikely to contaminate groundwater.
Symptoms on the Weeds
Symptoms of treatment are generally first seen 7-10 days after spraying, or longer (if growth is slow). 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
A covering of dew may reduce efficacy where run-off occurs. Reduced control is likely where weed growth is impaired by natural senescence, drought, high temperature, a covering of dust, flooding or severe/prolonged frost at, or immediately after, application. HY-GLO 360 will remain efficacious at low but not freezing temperatures, however the onset of symptoms will be delayed.
Mixing and Spraying
HY-GLO 360 mixes readily with water and can be applied in spray volumes ranging from 80-400 l/ha using tractor mounted, knapsack, rotary atomizers and hand-held sprayers. Specialized 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.
a) Tractor mounted and powered sprayers
These should be capable of applying accurately 80-400 l/ha within a pressure range of 1.5-2.5 bars (20-35 psi). Half fill the spray tank with clean water, start gentle agitation, and then add the correct amount of HY-GLO 360. Top up the tank with water to the required level. To avoid foaming do not use top tank agitation. Use of a defoamer may be necessary. All applications using hydraulic sprayers (including knapsack sprayers) should use 'MEDIUM' or “COARSE' spray quality (BCPC definition). Medium Volume application (150-300 l/ha) Avoid high water volumes (>300 l/ha) which may lead to run-off from the treated vegetation, resulting in reduced control. Low drift nozzles such as air induction and pre-orifice types producing a medium or coarse spray (BCPC definition) should be used to minimize the risk of drift. Low Volume Application (minimum 80 l/ha) Low volume application can be achieved by reducing pressure and the appropriate nozzle selection. Low drift nozzles which produce a medium spray quality (BCPC definition) should be used to minimize the risk of drift
b) Knapsack sprayers
Recommended delivery range is 80-300 l/ha. Half fill the spray tank with clean water, add the correct amount to HY-GLO 360 and top up with water. Fill according to best practice. When used at a walking speed of 1 m/sec to apply a swath of 1 m width, most knapsack sprayers fitted with a Lurmark AN 2.0 or similar nozzle deliver approximately 200 l/ha spray volume (or 10 L per 500 m2). To apply 4.0 l/ha of HY-GLO 360, therefore, use 40 ml of product for each 2 litres of spray liquid required. Similarly, knapsack sprayers fitted with low volume nozzles such as Lurmark AN 1.0 typically deliver approximately 100 l/ha spray volume. To apply 4.0 l/ha HY-GLO 360 in this case, use 80 ml of product for each 2 litres of spray liquid required
c) Rotary Atomizers
Tractor-mounted boom sprayers and hand-held machines are suitable for use in some situations to apply a minimum spray volume of 40 l/ha. When rotary atomizers are used to apply HY-GLO 360 ensure that the droplet diameter falls within the range 200-300 microns for all uses. Stir the correct amount of HY-GLO 360 to control the particular target species into the sprayer bottle half filled with clean water. Top up with water, close the top and shake gently to ensure good mixing. Do not tank mix HY-GLO 360 when using rotary atomizer sprayers.
d) Weed Wipers
For ropewick applicators use a concentration of 1 part HY-GLO 360 to 2 parts of water and add a water soluble dye if required. Care should be taken to avoid dripping onto wanted vegetation. For new generation weed wipers, use 1 part HY-GLO 360 to 10 to 20 parts of water or as directed by manufacturer's instructions
e) Spot Gun
Applicators Spot gun applicators are for the treatment of individual weeds. Apply 5 ml of spray to target weed, using a narrow cone TG-3 or TG-5 nozzle.
