Additional Safety Phrases

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
CEREALS
WINTER WHEAT, BARLEY AND OAT
Apply MIRCAM SUPER from the leaf sheath erect stage to before the first node is detectable.
If sharp or severe frost occurs within three to four weeks of application to wheat or barley, damage may occur to the crop that will cause scorch or stunting, which may or may not lead to a reduction yield. Read CAUTIONS section before use.

SPRING WHEAT, BARLEY AND OATS
Apply MIRCAM SUPER from the five expanded leaf stage up to before the first node is detectable.

RYE AND UNDERSOWN CEREALS
MIRCAM SUPER is not recommended for use in rye. MIRCAM SUPER may be used on undersown cereals where the undersown crop consists of grass alone, but not before the grass begins to tiller. DO NOT use MIRCAM SUPER on any other undersown crop. DO NOT use MIRCAM SUPER on cereals undersown with clover and legume mixes.
NOTE: It is important to note that under some growing conditions the crop may be seen to be prone after spraying but recovery is rapid and the crop will GROW AWAY NORMALLY.

Rate of application and volume
Apply MIRCAM SUPER at 3.0 l/ha.
Apply MIRCAM SUPER in 200–400 litres water.

CEREAL WEED SUSCEPTIBILITY
Weeds are most susceptible to MIRCAM SUPER when growing vigorously under warm moist conditions. Results from spraying under cold or frosty conditions will not be as satisfactory.

Susceptible
Controlled from cotyledon to two true leaves up to six true leaves or 50 mm across x 50 mm high.

Back Bindweed, Charlock, Common Chickweed, Cleavers (only controlled up to first whorl stage), Fat Hen, Forget-me-not, Coon Fumitory, Groundsel, Knotgrass, Scentless Mayweed, Common Orache, Feld Pennycress, Pale Persicaria, Common Poppy, Wild Radish, Redshank, Shepherd’s Purse

Moderately susceptible
Controlled at cotyledon to two true leaves and checked at six true leaves or 50 mm across ¥ 50 mm high.
Corn Buttercup, Common Hempnettle, Scented Mayweed, Pineapple weed, Scarlet Pimpernel, Prickly Sowthistle, Common Field Speedwell

Moderately resistant
Checked at cotyledon to two true leaves stage
Stinking ayweed

GRASSLAND
MIRCAM SUPER can be used on grass seed crops, permanent grassland and established leys for the control of annual, biennial and perennial weeds. It will control both seedling and established plants of susceptible weed species.
Optimum results will be obtained from a spray in the spring when weed growth is vigorous. This is usually in April, but can be carried out earlier if conditions are suitable. A second application can be made in the following autumn, where weed growth is vigorous and there is at least one month’s growing weather following treatment.
Best results are from two applications made in the spring of succeeding years.
Where grassland has been grazed or cut for conservation allow at least 14 days, and when the weeds have re grown, before treatment. Weed growth and control is usually enhanced by an application of nitrogen fertilizer two–three weeks before treatment with MIRCAM SUPER.
It is safe to use on grasses from the three leaf stage onwards. It is damaging to clover and other legumes, and swards containing them should not be sprayed.
MIRCAM SUPER is particularly useful for the control of Chickweed in areas of grassland poached by stock. It also gives good control of seedling and young Docks. Dock plants that are established will be defoliated and will need re spraying during the following season.

GRASS SEED CROPS
Grass seed crops should be sprayed from four–six weeks before flower heads begin to emerge. Timothy should be sprayed six weeks before flower head emergence.
Rate of application and volume
Apply MIRCAM SUPER at 5.5 l/ha in 200–400 l/ha.

GRASSLAND WEED SUSCEPTIBILITY
Susceptible weeds

Controlled if sprayed when appreciable foliage is present.

Creeping Buttercup, Common Chickweed, Daisy, Dandelion, Docks, seedling (curled and broadleaved), Plantain

Plus all susceptible weeds shown under cereal weed susceptibility

Moderately susceptible
Foliage controlled, seedlings controlled.
Re-growth from roots may require follow-up application
Curled and Broadleaved Established Docks, Perennial Nettle, Ragwort (rosette stage only), Creeping Thistle, Spear Thistle

MANAGED AMENITY TURF
MIRCAM SUPER is best applied to actively growing turf. Weed control is enhanced by strong grass growth.
Irrigation and fertilizer treatment will maintain growth in summer or dry periods.
Application is best started in spring. Where difficult weeds exist follow up sprays will be necessary. Repeat application can be made four–six weeks after the first spray, provided good growing conditions have been maintained.
In practice several low dose sprays, associated with suitable turf management will give better results than a single spray at a high dose.

Rate of application and volume
Apply MIRCAM SUPER at 3.5 to 5.5 l/ha in 300–500 l/ha of water.

TURF WEED SUSCEPTIBILITY
Application rate: 3.5 l/ha
Recommendation:
One application per season
Cat’s Ear, Greater Plantain, Hoary Plantain, Lesser Plantain, Ribwort Plantain, Sea Plantain

Recommendation: Two applications per season
Creping Buttercup, Daisy, Dandelion, Hawkbit

Application rate: 5.5 l/ha
Recommendation:
Repeat application may be necessary
White Clover, Black Medick, Mouse Ear, Self Heal, Bird’s foot Trefoil, Lesser Trefoil

Recommendation: Two applications in successive seasons necessary
Pearlwort, Yarrow

APPLICATION
Mixing

Half fill the spray tank with clean water and start the agitation. Pour in the required amount of MIRCAM SUPER. Add the remainder of the water and continue agitation until spraying is completed.

Tank mixtures
When tank mixes are to be used, each product should be added separately to the spray tank, taking due note of any instructions given as to the order of mixing.

Compatibility
Whilst most pesticides are compatible with MIRCAM SUPER check the other manufacturers’ recommendations before tank mixing.

Drift
Do not spray in windy or very still conditions. Spray drift must be avoided especially near susceptible crops such as tomatoes, lettuce, oilseed rape, vegetables, turnips, swedes, sugar beet, peas, glasshouse crops, fruit and ornamentals, etc. Avoid drift onto all broadleaved plants outside the target area.

Contamination
WASH EQUIPMENT thoroughly immediately after use. Fill the tank with clean water and leave overnight. Spray out before storage or using other products. Traces of the product may cause damage to susceptible crops sprayed later.

Storage
Keep dry and frost free in a suitable pesticide store. DO NOT RE USE CONTAINER FOR ANY PURPOSE. CAUTIONS KEEP LIVESTOCK out of treated areas for at least two weeks following treatment and until poisonous weeds such as Ragwort have died and become unpalatable.
The crop should not be rolled or harrowed within a period of at least seven days before or after spraying with MIRCAM SUPER.
Do not apply MIRCAM SUPER to crops suffering from herbicide damage or stress caused by pests, nutrition defects or weather.
After liming ensure lime is washed off the crop and weeds before spraying. Care should be taken to avoid overlap of spray swaths.
Do not apply during drought or if rain is expected within six hours of treatment.
Do not spray when cold or frosty conditions are prevalent.
Do not mow fine turf for 24 hours before or after treatment or for three days if treating less closely mown turf.
If renovating turf, do not re seed for six–eight weeks after treatment.
Turf sown in spring or early summer may be ready for spraying after about two months, but turf sown later in the year should have delayed application for about eight months after sowing.
Do not use first four mowings for mulching unless composted for at least six months.
