For the control of a wide range of broad leaved weeds including charlock in wheat, barley and oats including undersown and direct re-seeds with clover

Method of Appliction: Tractor mounted/trailed sprayer
Other specific restrictions Do not apply before end of February in the year of harvest Livestock must be kept out of treated areas for at least 2 weeks following treatment and until poisonous weeds such as ragwort have died and become unpalatable. The container must not be re-used for any purpose

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

RESTRICTIONS
DO NOT roll, harrow or cut crops within seven days before or after applying LEGUMEX.
DO NOT graze crops within a week before or 2 weeks after applying LEGUMEX
DO NOT apply during drought, rain or if rain is expected.
DO NOT apply in very cold conditions as effectiveness may be reduced.
DO NOT use LEGUMEX immediately before or after sowing any crop.
DO NOT spray on established clover crops or lucerne.
DO NOT use LEGUMEX on cereals undersown with Lucerne or in seed mixtures containing Lucerne. When Lucerne is present use BUTOXONE DB or another suitable product.
DO NOT spray in windy conditions as the spray drift may cause damage to neighbouring crops. The following crops are particularly susceptible: Beet, Brassicae (e.g. turnips, swedes, oilseed rape), and most market garden crops including lettuce and tomatoes under glass, pears and vines

CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
CEREALS
May be used on all commercial varieties of Winter and Spring sown Wheat, Barley and Oats. Not recommended for use on Rye
Application rate 7.0 L product/ha
Water volume: 100 - 400 L water/ha. Use a minimum of 225 litres water in dense stands of cereals or if weed growth is dense.
Weed control in cereals: LEGUMEX applied at 7.0 L/ha will control those annual weeds as indicated in the weed control table

Winter Wheat, Barley and Oats (including undersown with red or white clover)
DO NOT use LEGUMEX on established clovers or on lucerne
Latest time of application: Apply from the 5 leaf stage until before 1st node detectable (BBCH31).

Spring Barley and Oats (including undersown with red or white clover)
Latest time of application: Apply from 1 leaf fully expanded stage until before 1st node detectable (BBCH31).

Undersown cereals
Application should be made when the cereal crop is at the correct growth stage (winter wheat from leaf sheath erect stage to before 1st node detectable stage, spring wheat from the 5 leaf stage to before 1st node detectable stage, spring barley and oats from 1 leaf fully expanded stage to before 1st node detectable stage) AND when the undersown crop of clover is at the correct growth stage (before 4th trifoliate leaf stage).

GRASSLAND 
DO NOT use LEGUMEX on established clovers or on lucerne
Application rate: 7.0 L product/ha
Water volume: 100 - 400 L water/ha. Use a minimum of 225 litres water in dense swards or if weed growth is dense.
Weed control in grassland: LEGUMEX applied at 7.0 L/ha will control the listed annual weeds and will control the listed perennial weeds as indicated in the weed control table. Biennial and perennial weeds should be sprayed during their period of maximum growth, usually when the flower buds are beginning to form. The response of perennial weeds to treatments is often variable with only the aerial parts killed, though often suppression will occur. The recovery of weeds will be reduced if the sward is growing vigorously at the time of treatment.

Grassland (Established)
Application timing: The time of application is best determined according to the growth stage of weeds present. A top dressing 10 days before treatment is recommended to assist kill of weeds and subsequent recovery of the sward.
Newly Sown Leys
Application timing: Apply to young grass leys when the grasses have at least 4 leaves and have begun to tiller. Where several species of grass are present the timing should be dictated by the slowest developing species. Applications before tillering may cause a temporary check to growth.
Direct Re-seeds
Application timing: Apply after the 1st trifoliate leaf has appeared on the majority of the clovers ensuring that weeds are at the susceptible stage. With red clover some leaf deformity may be observed but subsequent growth will be normal.

SUCCEEDING CROPS
DO NOT sow any crop into soil treated with LEGUMEX for at least 3 months after application

MIXING AND SPRAYING
Half fill the spray tank with clean water and start the agitation. Pour in the required amount of LEGUMEX. Add the remainder of the water and continue agitation until spraying is completed. USE IMMEDIATELY following dilution. DO NOT allow diluted product to stand before use. Apply as a medium quality spray (as defined by BCPC). A spray pressure of 2-3 bar is recommended. 

TANK CLEANING
WASH EQUIPMENT thoroughly with water and wetting agent or liquid detergent immediately after use. Spray out, fill with clean water and leave over night. Spray out again before storing or using for another product. Traces of product can cause harm to susceptible crops sprayed later.

COMPATIBILITY
LEGUMEX can be tank-mixed with other pesticides, please consult your Nufarm distributor or Nufarm UK Limited.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
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 an 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.
