RESTRICTIONS/WARNINGS
Take care to avoid local overdosing. Do not make more than one application of PROPER FLO within 9 months to the same area of land.

SOIL TYPES PROPER
FLO can be used on all soil types with the following exceptions: 1. Do not use on soils containing more than 10% organic matter. 2. Do not use on winter fi eld beans grown in certain soil types. See RECOMMENDATIONS.

SOIL AND WEATHER CONDITIONS
PROPER FLO requires moisture for root uptake. Best residual action is obtained in moist soils of fi ne tilth. PROPER FLO can be applied under frosty conditions but should not be used where run-off from the soil surface is likely. Best results are achieved when growth of weeds (especially black-grass and volunteer cereals) is slow, but transpiration continues. In mild autumns/winters, emerged weeds may take longer to be controlled, the residual activity of PROPER FLO will be shortened and overall control may be reduced. The effi cacy of PROPER FLO may be reduced in organic soils and in the presence of excessive surface organic debris, burnt straw, ash or ploughed-up turf. In winter fi eld beans ensure a fi rm seedbed before spraying.

RESISTANCE
Strains of some annual grasses (eg black-grass, wild oats, 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 your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.

Water volume
Apply PROPER FLO in 200 to 1000 litres of water per hectare in winter oilseed rape, winter fi eld beans, lucerne. Apply in 400 to 1000 litres of water per hectare in all other crops. Ensure good ground cover.

CROP INFORMATION
Winter oilseed rape
PROPER FLO can be applied after the use of an approved specifi c graminicide applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Processed crops
No taints have been detected in tests with treated fi eld crops. Consult your processor before use.

Control of black grass
Established (well-tillered) black-grass is moderately susceptible: Where populations of black-grass and/or volunteer cereals exceed 50/m2 PROPER FLO should be applied in an approved tank mix with an approved graminicide in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, or following an effective approved graminicide to ensure optimum weed control. Deeper germinating black-grass within the soil profi le could reduce product effi cacy. Where partial resistance to the partner graminicide is known to exist the dose of PROPER FLO may be increased to 2.1 litres/ha. This may also be done if applications are made early in the season, under warm conditions and an increase in the duration of residual control is required (see Soil and Weather Conditions above). Where high levels of resistance to the partner graminicide occurs there is no advantage of adding this graminicide to PROPER FLO for black-grass control, and PROPER FLO even at 2.1 litres/ha will not give acceptable levels of established black-grass control in these circumstances.

FORESTRY APPLICATION AND TIMING
PROPER FLO is recommended for use on the following species: Alder, Beech, Southern Beech, Birch, Douglas Fir, Grand Fir, Noble Fir, Horse Chestnut, Larch, Lawson Cypress, Oak, Bishop Pine, Corsican Pine, Lodgepole Pine, Monterey Pine, Scots Pine, Poplar, Norway Spruce, Sycamore, Sitka Spruce, Western Hemlock and Wild Cherry.

MIXING
Add half the required volume of water to the spray tank and begin agitation. Shake the container vigorously and add the recommended quantity of PROPER FLO through the fi lter basket. Rinse container thoroughly by using an integrated pressure rinsing device or manually rinsing three times. Add washings to the sprayer through the fi lter basket and dispose of safely. Add the rest of the water. Continue agitation while topping up the tank and whilst spraying. Spray immediately: do not allow the mixture to stand. Thoroughly wash all spraying and measuring equipment with water immediately.
