A Wettable Powder containing 250 g/kg Quinoclamine. A selective moss killer for the control of moss and liverwort on trees and ornamental shrubs, and for the control of moss on managed amenity turf
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. Mogeton® is a moss killer designed specifically for the elimination of moss (bryophytes) on grassed areas. Its active ingredient quinoclamine is absorbed by the green elements of moss. It acts by inhibiting photosynthesis. Mogeton® must therefore be applied when moss is present and during a period of active growth. In addition, applying Mogeton® leaves a surface deposit which inhibits the germination of moss spores and, therefore, its effectiveness is extended over many weeks. A 20 meter aquatic buffer zone must be respected when using standard methods.
APPROVED DOSAGES AND METHOD OF APPLICATION:
Against the various types of moss: 1.5 g/m² (15 kg/ha) applied by spraying on the infested areas 300 g of product in a 20 L Knapsack sprayer Number and period of treatments: one treatment per season The treatment is carried out after emergence of the moss, during the active growing season, preferably when the sky is overcast and humidity is high, but not when it is raining. Do not apply during the first year after laying the grass. Grass and grass clippings should not be used for animal feed during the year of treatment.
Trees and ornamental shrubs:
Against mosses (including liverwort): 1.5 g/m² (15 kg/ha) applied by spraying (directed jet). Volume of water: 100 ml/m² (1,000 l/ha) Number and period of treatments: One treatment per year after transplanting in pots, when moss (and liverwort) is present and at a time of active growth. Effectiveness and selectivity will be maximised by soaking the foliage after treatment (1 to 2 litres of water per m²).
The effectiveness of Mogeton® is increased in warm humid conditions. In cold dry weather, its effectiveness will be delayed although the degree of effectiveness will not be affected. Preparing for spraying: Fill the applicator equipment with half the required amount of water. Add and mix Mogeton® then top-up with the remaining water.
Mogeton can be applied by Orchard sprayers, Tractor mounted/trailed horizontal boom sprayer and knapsack sprayers Application: To ensure success in combating moss and liverwort, a good soaking is essential. A minimum spray mixture of 100 ml/m² (1,000 l/ha) must therefore be scrupulously adhered to. It is recommended that nozzles which produce large droplets be selected to ensure a good soaking. If possible, a directed application is preferable. On lawns, only the infested areas should be treated. For plants with dense foliage and coverage, an adequate soaking of the moss is not always guaranteed. In such cases, soaking must be followed by watering (0,5 – 2 litres of water per m²) after the treatment.
Follow these general recommendations During preparation: Avoid over-filling the tank or containers. Empty the packaging completely into the spray tank or watering can. Do not pour rinsing water into the drains, apply it to the treated area. During treatment: Apply in calm weather to avoid dispersing the spray. Do not treat areas with a slope that would allow the product to drain or leach into a water source (ditches, ponds, streams). Mogeton® must not be applied to impermeable surfaces. After treatment: Wait long enough before re-entering the treated areas to allow the product to dry completely. After the treatment, wear suitable gloves if the plants in pots or containers must be handled.
- SPo : Do not go near plants or treated surfaces until the spray deposit is completely dry.
- SPo2 : Wash all protective equipment after use.
- Women who are pregnant or of childbearing age should not be exposed to this product.
- SP1 : Do not pollute water with this product or its packaging.
- The recommended dosage is the smallest dose that guarantees maximum effectiveness in most cases. This dose may be reduced, at the user’s responsibility, for example in weeding programmes using mini-doses. Reducing the applied dose does not warrant an increase in the maximum number of treatments nor a reduction of the period prior to grass-cutting.
