An emulsifiable concentrate containing 144 g/litre (13.85% w/w) fluroxypyr-meptyl (100 g/litre acid equivalent), 80 g/litre (7.69% w/w) clopyralid and 2.5 g/litre (0.24% w/w) florasulam.

A post-emergence herbicide for use on MANAGED AMENITY TURF, including lawns, and AMENITY GRASSLAND for the control of DAISY, DANDELION, CLOVER, BUTTERCUP, RIBWORT PLANTAIN and other broad-leaved weeds

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.
GENERAL INFORMATION
PRAXYS ® herbicide has activity against a range of broad-leaved weeds. The ideal timing for application is when the weeds are small and actively growing.

NOTES
Broad-leaved weeds not present at application will not be controlled.
An interval of four weeks must elapse between application of PRAXYS and re-seeding turf.
Do not use any plant material treated with PRAXYS for composting or mulching.
Do not apply if turfgrass is wet. Do not apply to turf, lawns or grass areas which are under stress.
Do not apply if night temperatures are low, if ground frost is imminent, or in periods of prolonged cold or dry weather. Ensure weeds are actively growing as after periods of prolonged drought, weeds can take a long time to start actively growing again after soil moisture returns.
Take extreme care to avoid drift onto crops and non-target plants, e.g. trees, shrubs, bedding, outside the target area

RESISTANCE
PRAXYS contains active ingredients with differing modes of action and the risk of resistance building is therefore reduced. However as florasulam is an ALS inhibitor there is a risk of resistance building to this active ingredient and so precautions should be taken to minimise the risk. Therefore, avoid using single mode of action herbicides, such as ALS inhibitors in the same field over a number of years. Users are advised to apply products containing herbicides with different modes of action or use sequences or tank mixtures where two or more components are active against the target weeds. 

AREA OF USE
PRAXYS can be applied to established managed amenity turf, including lawns, and amenity grassland.
PRAXYS has been tested for selectivity on the following range of turf grass species:

Annual meadow-grass Perennial ryegrass Chewings fescue Smooth-stalked meadow-grass Creeping bent Rough stalked bluegrass.

In view of the large number of turf grass cultivars grown consult manufacturer for current approved list or test PRAXYS for turf safety on a small area of turf before overall application.

APPLICATION TIMING
Apply when weeds are in active growth normally from March to October when the soil is moist. Do not apply in periods of drought unless irrigation is applied. Avoid mowing 3 days before and after spraying to ensure sufficient weed leaf surface is present and to allow uptake and movement of PRAXYS within the weed.

WATER VOLUME
For overall application apply PRAXYS in 200 litres of water per hectare. For knapsack application apply PRAXYS in 2 litres of water per 100 m 2 . APPLICATION EQUIPMENT PRAXYS may be applied through tractor-mounted hydraulic sprayers or knapsack sprayers providing they are in good working order and have been calibrated according to the manufacturers’ recommendations. Do not apply through CDA applicators.

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT
PRAXYS may be applied through tractor-mounted hydraulic sprayers or knapsack sprayers providing they are in good working order and have been calibrated according to the manufacturers’ recommendations.

Do not apply through CDA applicators.

MIXING
Half fill the spray tank with water and add the required amount of PRAXYS. Fill up the spray tank, agitating continuously to ensure thorough mixing, and maintain agitation until spraying is complete. Use only clean water for mixing.

SPRAY QUALITY
Apply PRAXYS as a MEDIUM spray as defined by the BCPC system
