Selective herbicide for the control of annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds for use in cereals, grassland and amenity grassland. SALVO® is a water soluble concentrate (SL) formulation, containing 500 g/l 2,4-D as the dimethylamine salt.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
SALVO® is a translocated phenoxy herbicide for use in cereals, grassland and amenity grassland, containing 500 g/l 2,4-D as the dimethylamine salt. It controls a range of annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds. Best results are achieved by spraying when the crop is actively growing. Annual weeds are usually more susceptible at the seedling stage of growth and perennial weeds at the flower buds stage of growth.

RESTRICTIONS
MAXIMUM ONE application per crop / per year.
DO NOT roll or harrow within 7 days before or after spraying.
DO NOT spray if rain is falling or imminent.
DO NOT mow on grassland or amenity grassland for 4 days before or after application.
Livestock must be kept out of treated areas for at least 14 days following treatment and until poisonous weeds such as ragwort have died and become unpalatable.
A minimum interval of 7 days must be observed between application and grazing when poisonous weeds such as ragwort are not present. DO NOT treat cereals or grass suffering from stress caused by cold weather, drought, disease or other adverse factors such as freezing conditions.
DO NOT treat grass crops intended for seed production
Agricultural grassland destined for hay or silage in the spring, should be sprayed in the preceding autumn
2,4-D is active at low concentrations. Take extreme care to avoid drift onto neighbouring crops, especially beet crops, brassicas, most market garden crops including onions, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, pears and vines

RESISTANCE
When herbicides of 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 dominant. A weed species is considered to be resistant if it survives a correctly timed application at the recommended rate. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted. This should include integrating herbicides with a programme of cultural measures.

WEEDS CONTROLLED
Best weed control is achieved by application on small, but actively growing weeds. This is at the seedling stage for annual weeds and up to the formation of flower buds for perennial weeds. 

CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
WINTER CEREALS (WINTER WHEAT, WINTER BARLEY AND WINTER RYE)
SALVO should be applied in the spring from the leaf sheath erect stage up to before first node detectable (GS 15-31), at an application rate of 1.2 - 2.0 litres/ha, depending on the weeds present (see weed control table above).

SPRING CEREALS (SPRING WHEAT, SPRING BARLEY AND SPRING OATS) AND WINTER OATS
SALVO should be applied in the spring from the 5 fully expanded leaf stage up to before first node detectable (GS 15-31), at an application rate of 0.8 litre/ha.

UNDERSOWN WHEAT, BARLEY, RYE AND OATS
SALVO can be used on cereals undersown with grass. Do not spray before undersowing. The application should be made before the first node detectable stage of the crop (GS 31), at an application rate of 1.0 litre/ha.

GRASSLAND AND AMENITY GRASSLAND
SALVO can be used on grassland and amenity grassland established for at least 12 months at an application rate of 2.4-2.8 litres/ha, depending on the weeds present (see weed control table above). Weed control is often variable, but recovery of weeds is reduced if the crop is actively growing at the application period. Often only the aerial parts of perennial weeds are killed. Clover will receive a check. Do not treat where clover or other legumes are an important part of the sward.

FOLLOWING CROPS:
DO NOT apply immediately before or after sowing any crop.
DO NOT plant succeeding crops within 3 months of application.
DO NOT direct drill grass/clover mixtures within 3 weeks of application.

MIXING AND SPRAYING:
The product can be applied by tractor mounted/trailed sprayer of by knapsack sprayer. Check and clean all hoses, nozzles and equipment to be used prior to use. Half fill the sprayer tank with clean water and begin agitation. Add the required quantity of SALVO to the sprayer tank. Fill the spray tank with water as required whilst agitating. Continue agitating during spraying.
On emptying the container, RINSE CONTAINER THOROUGHLY by using an integrated pressure rinsing device or manually rinsing three times. Add washings to sprayer at time of filling and dispose of container safely. SALVO should be applied as a medium quality spray at a water volume of 100-1000 litres/ ha. For undersown crops a low volume spray is recommended.
Do not leave spray liquid in the sprayer for long periods (e.g. during meals or overnight).

TANK WASHING:
After using SALVO, empty the tank completely and drain the whole system. Thoroughly wash inside the tank with a pressure hose. Quarter fill the tank with clean water and circulate through the pump, line, hoses and nozzles, then drain. Quarter fill the tank again, add a suitable detergent and circulate through the system for at least 15 minutes. Drain, remove filters and nozzles and clean separately. Rinse inside the tank thoroughly using a pressure hose and flush system with clean water
