Active materials

A water soluble granule formulation containing 250 g/kg tribenuron methyl and 250 g/kg thifensulfuron methyl, both sulfonylureas, for weed control in wheat and barley, oats, rye and triticale.

Weed Control
Quantum Max SX contains thifensulfuron-methyl and tribenuron-methyl, sulfonylurea (ALS inhibitor) herbicides that work predominantly by foliar action with some root activity. It controls a wide range of broad-leaved weeds and is most effective if applied when the weeds are small and actively growing. Good spray cover of weeds must be obtained and since larger weeds often become less susceptible, it is important to note the size of each weed at the time of application. Susceptible plants cease growth almost immediately after post-emergence treatment and symptoms can be seen about two weeks after spring application. It is also important to identify the weeds occurring in the crop and refer to the weed table to ensure that the weeds present are those susceptible to Quantum Max SX.
The susceptibility ratings of weeds in the following table refer to good spray cover and good growing conditions.

Weed Resistance
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 resistant to a herbicide if it survives a correctly-applied treatment at the recommended dose.
Development of resistance within a weed species can be avoided or delayed by sequencing or tank-mixing with suitable products having a different mode of action. For control of Chickweed this product must always be applied with an alternative mode of action product at recommended rates.

A strategy for preventing and managing resistance should be adopted. Further details and advice on how to implement such a strategy may be obtained from your crop advisor or chemical supplier. The Herbicide Resistance Action Committee (HRAC) also produces guidelines which may be consulted for additional information.

Soil and weather
Quantum Max SX can be used on all soil types. Weed control may be reduced when
conditions are very dry.

Volume and application
Application should be made in 200 litres of water per hectare using suitable ground equipment to give good spray cover of the weeds. Use a conventional field crop sprayer at a pressure of 2 - 3 bars and apply as a MEDIUM spray (as defined by BCPC). Care should be taken not to overlap spray swaths.

Quarter fill the spray tank with clean water, start the agitation and add the required quantity of Quantum Max SX directly to the tank without prior creaming. Continue agitation while topping up the tank and while spraying.

Quantum Max SX can be used on all varieties of winter and spring wheat and barley, oats, rye and triticale.

Quantum Max SX should be applied from the three-leaf stage up to and including the flag leaf ligule/collar just visible (GS 39).

Apply Quantum Max SX at 60 g/ha.

Following Crops
Cereals, field beans or oilseed rape may be sown in the same calendar year as harvest of a cereal crop treated with Quantum Max SX. Before sowing, soil should be ploughed and cultivated to a depth of at least 15cm.
In the event of a crop failure for any reason, sow only a cereal crop within three months of application of Quantum Max SX After three months field beans and oilseed rape may also be sown.
