A water soluble granule formulation containing 200 g/ kg metsulfuron-methyl, a sulfonylurea, for spring weed control on all winter and spring varieties of wheat, barley, oats, triticale, linseed and green cover on land not being used for crop production

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.

RESTRICTIONS
Do not apply more than once to any cereal or linseed crop or more than once per year to green cover on land not being used for crop production. When applying SAVVY PREMIUM to linseed care should be taken not to overlap spray swaths.
SAVVY PREMIUM, alone or in tank-mix, must not be applied to any crop suffering from stress as a result of drought, waterlogging, low temperatures, pest or disease attack, nutrient or lime deficiency or other factors reducing crop growth.
Do not use SAVVY PREMIUM on cereal crops undersown with grasses, clover or other legumes or any other broad-leaved crop. Refer to “Compatibility” for details on use of SAVVY PREMIUM with other ALS inhibitor herbicides. Do not apply SAVVY PREMIUM to any cereal crop in sequence or in tank mixture with any product containing any other sulfonylurea herbicide not listed in “Compatibility”.
Do not apply SAVVY PREMIUM on seedling grasses. On green covers, SAVVY PREMIUM should be applied to seedling cereals from the three-leaf stage. When using tank-mixtures take care not to overlap spray swaths.
Do not use SAVVY PREMIUM in tank-mix on oats, triticale and linseed. On linseed allow at least 7 days between SAVVY PREMIUM and other treatments (10 days if crop is growing poorly or under stress).
SAVVY PREMIUM should not be applied within 7 days of rolling any crop. Due to the high level of activity of the herbicide, special care must be taken to avoid damage by drift onto broad-leaved plants outside the target area, or onto ponds, waterways or ditches. Thorough cleansing of equipment is also very important.

Weed Control
SAVVY PREMIUM is a highly active herbicide with foliar and root activity against a wide range of broad-leaved weeds. It is most effective when applied to small actively growing weeds. As larger weeds often become less susceptible, it is important to note the size of each weed species at the time of application. Good spray cover of the weeds must be obtained. Weed control may be reduced when soil conditions are very dry. Nevertheless, with adequate soil moisture, susceptible weeds germinating soon after treatment will be controlled.

Weed Resistance
This product contains metsulfuron-methyl, which is an ALS inhibitor, also classified by the Herbicide Resistance Action Committee as ‘group B’ 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.
A strategy for preventing and managing resistance should be adopted. The Weed Resistance Action Groups have produced guidelines and copies are available from the HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.

Soil
SAVVY PREMIUM can be used on all soil types.

Volume and application
Apply in 100 - 200 litres of water per hectare, using suitable equipment to give good spray cover of the weeds. When crops are thick or weed growth dense, use upto 400 litres of water per hectare. When applying SAVVY PREMIUM, care should be taken not to overlap spray swaths.

Mixing
Before using SAVVY PREMIUM, make sure that the spraying equipment is clean.
When using SAVVY PREMIUM in a tank-mix, always add SAVVY PREMIUM to the spray tank first. SAVVY PREMIUM mixes easily with water, but the following mixing procedure should be followed: quarter fill the spray tank with water, start the agitation and add the required quantity of SAVVY PREMIUM directly to the tank without prior creaming. Continue agitation while topping up the tank and while spraying

Compatibility
In any tank-mix add SAVVY PREMIUM to the tank first and ensure it is fully dispersed before adding the partner product. Products should only be tankmixed if each product can be applied within the label recommendations for its use. For further information contact your Rotam distributor
‘Joint application' with any one of the following other sulfonyl-urea and 'ALS inhibiting' herbicides may be applied to a crop treated with SAVVY PREMIUM. 'Joint application' is the use of SAVVY PREMIUM in tank mixture or sequence with one of the products listed below: Amidosulfuron (only cereals may be sown as a following crop) Flupyrsulfuron Iodosulfuron Mesosulfuron Pyroxsulam
Requirements and restrictions on the above mentioned product labels must be observed when using in tank-mixture or sequence. Vigour reductions may be seen in following crops of oilseed rape and field beans under certain circumstances e.g. dry summer. Any effects should be outgrown and should not result in yield loss.
Do not apply SAVVY PREMIUM to any cereal crop in sequence or tank-mixture with any product containing any other sulfonylurea herbicide.
Do not tank-mix Savvy Premium with chlorpyrifos. Allow a minimum of 14 days between application of Savvy Premium and any chlorpyrifos treatment.
Cultivation (following crop): No special requirements for cultivation are needed where cereals are to be sown as the following crop. Before sowing either oilseed rape or field beans, soil should be cultivated to a depth of 20 cm. Sugar beet may be grown in the spring, following harvest of a preceding cereal crop which has received one of the above sequences.

CROPS
CEREALS
Crop Safety
SAVVY PREMIUM can be used on all winter and spring varieties of wheat, oats, barley and triticale between the growth stages given below.

Timing
SAVVY PREMIUM must only be applied from 1 February, provided the crop has at least two leaves (wheat, oats and triticale) or three leaves (barley), until before the flag leaf sheath extending stage.

Dose
Apply SAVVY PREMIUM at 30 g/ha when used alone or in tank-mix with other herbicides

Replacement crops
In case of crop failure within 3 months from the application of SAVVY PREMIUM, sow only wheat

Following Crops
Only cereals, oilseed rape, field beans or grass may be sown in the same calendar year to succeed a cereal crop treated with SAVVY PREMIUM. Where joint application with other sulfonyl urea and 'ALS-inhibiting' herbicides is required, recommendations in the compatibility section must be followed

LINSEED
Crop Safety and timing
SAVVY PREMIUM should be applied actively growing linseed (all varieties) from the growth stage “first pair of true leaves unfolded”, up to 30 cm high or before flower buds visible, whichever comes first. Most annual weeds are best controlled by the earliest application possible. When applying SAVVY PREMIUM, care should be taken not to overlap spray swaths.

Dose
Apply SAVVY PREMIUM at 30 g/ha.

Following crops
Only cereals should be planted within 16 months of applying SAVVY PREMIUM to linseed crop.

GREEN COVER ON LAND NOT BEING USED FOR CROP PRODUCTION
Crop Safety
SAVVY PREMIUM may be applied to green cover on land not being used for crop production where the green cover is made up predominantly (i.e. sufficient to maintain reasonable cover) of grassland, wheat, barley, oats or triticale. Where established grass species are the main cover crop, some discolouration and stunting may occur. SAVVY PREMIUM is selective to seedling cereals from the three-leaf stage (GS 13), but should not be used on seedling grasses.

Dose and timing
Apply SAVVY PREMIUM at 30 g/ha in 200 litres of water/ha before 1 August in year of application.
Only one application of a sulfonylurea-containing product must be made per calendar year to green cover on land not being used for crop production.

Following crops
Sow only cereals within 16 months of applying SAVVY PREMIUM on green cover on land not being used for crop production e.g. set-aside.

General
SAVVY PREMIUM effectively controls broad-leaved docks, with best control achieved from application three weeks before or after cutting. Many other broad-leaved plants occurring in the “set-aside' area will also be controlled or partially controlled, hence it may not be suitable for use where wild flower borders or other forms of conservation headland are to be developed. Before using on green cover on land not being used for crop production as part of a grant-aided scheme, ensure compliance with the management rules of that scheme.
