DIRECTIONS FOR USE
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.

WARNINGS
EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO AVOID SPRAY DRIFT AS THIS CAN SEVERLY DAMAGE OR DESTROY NEIGHBOURING CROPS AND PLANTS.

RESTRICTIONS
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.
Do not use under polythene or glass.
After application large quantities of decaying foliage, stolons, roots or rhizomes should be dispersed or buried by thorough cultivation before crop.
Application of lime, fertiliser, farmyard manure and pesticides should be delayed until five days after application of KYLEO.
Do not use in or alongside hedges.
Windfall (fruit fall to ground) must not be used as food or feeding stuff.
Do not apply by hand-held equipment.

WEEDS CONTROLLED
Susceptible
Black Bindweed, Field Bindweed, Cleavers, Common Couch, Dandelion, Red Deadnettle, Broadleaved Dock, Fat Hen, Field Forget-me-not, Groundsel, Knotgrass, Spp. Mayweed, Annual Meadow Grass, Black Medick, Ryegrass, Shepherd’s Purse, Speedwell spp., Creeping Thistle, Volunteer Cereals, Volunteer Oilseed Rape

Annual weeds susceptible at 3.0 l/ha.
Perennial weeds susceptible at 5.0 l/ha.
Annual and perennial grass weeds susceptible at 5.0 l/ha.
Broad mix of weeds with volunteer cereals susceptible at 5.0 l/ha.
Annual grasses and broadleaved weeds should have at least 5 cm of leaf, or two expanded true leaves respectively.

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 four to five leaves, each with 10–15 cm of new growth.
KYLEO will not give an acceptable level of control of horsetails.

Grassland
Maximum individual dose

For perennial weed control allow at least 21 days before spraying in spring and allow five days before cultivating or drilling. For annual weed control allow 24 hours before cultivating. Treat couch grass when it has formed three to four leaves and is actively growing. Ensure that all management rules are followed prior to use on land taken out of production as part of a grant aided scheme.

Following crops
Soil cultivation can be carried out as soon as first weeds show clear signs of KYLEO taking effect.
For grassland renewal, ensure that sowing takes place into a fine firm seedbed, into moist soil and that seed is sown at 1–2 cm depth. Following sowing the ground should be rolled.
KYLEO may cause damage to succeeding crops. The following periods of time must therefore be observed between application of KYLEO and the cultivation of succeeding crops:

5 Days Until Sowing
All edible crops (stubble), All non-edible crops (stubble)( Only cereals should be planted as a succeeding crop following application to All edible crops (stubble), All non-edible crops (stubble) with a five day sowing interval.)

14 Days Until Sowing
Maize, Sorghum

28 Days Until Sowing
Field Bean, Buckwheat, Peas, Linseed Fibre Flax, Alfalfa, Phacelia, Oilseed Rape, Mustard

60 Days Until Sowing
Potatoes, Sunflowers, Sugar Beet, Vegetables

MIXING AND SPRAYING
Before use ensure that the spraying equipment has been thoroughly cleaned. Half-fill the spray tank with clean water. With the contents of the spray tank under re-circulation, add the measured quantities of KYLEO through the filter. Top up the tank with water to the required level and maintain re-circulation until the tank is sprayed out.
Apply the recommended quantity of KYLEO through a conventional hydraulic sprayer using a MEDIUM spray to cover the weed leaves evenly and thoroughly.
After each days use, wash out with water and wetting agent. Wash out again with water, drain and allow to dry. Traces of herbicide left in the sprayer may damage susceptible crops if these are subsequently sprayed using the same equipment.

WEATHER AND GROWING CONDITIONS
Apply to a dry crop when rain is not forecast for at least three hours. Optimum results are obtained when the weeds are actively growing under good soil and weather conditions. Reduced weed control may be obtained during drought or cold weather. If rain falls shortly after application, the effect of KYLEO may be reduced.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
Strains of some annual grasses (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. 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.
When herbicides with the same mode of action are used repeatedly over several years in the same field, selection of resistant biotypes can take place. These can propagate and may become dominating. A weed species is considered to be resistant to a herbicide if it survives a correctly applied treatment at the recommended dose. 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.
