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 graze grass for at least 14 days after spraying.
DO NOT mow or roll four days before or after application.
DO NOT treat newly established grass less than one year old.
DO NOT treat grass crops intended for seed production.
DO NOT treat grass suffering from drought, disease or other adverse factors.
DO NOT roll or harrow crops for seven days either before or after application of THRUST.
DO NOT apply when grassland is flowering.
Avoid spray drift onto neighbouring crops and all broadleaved plants outside the target area.
Do not spray in windy weather. Beets, all brassicas (including oilseed rape, swedes and turnip) lettuce, sunflowers, onions, peas, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, all fruit crops (including vines) and ornamentals are particularly susceptible and may be damaged by spray drift. Avoid spraying within five metres of the field boundary to reduce effects on non-target insects or other arthropods.

WEEDS CONTROLLED
Apply when the majority of annual weeds are at the seedling stage.

Susceptible (Consistently high levels of control obtained under good growing conditions)
Creeping Thistle (Plants up to 50 cm high)

Moderately susceptible (Top growth usually killed and a useful measure of long-term control obtained under good growing conditions.)
Creeping Buttercup, Broadleaved Dock, Curled Dock, Common Ragwort

Ragwort control
Spray when the majority of plants are in the rosette stage and growing vigorously in the autumn or spring but before the flower spines start to grow. Fields for hay or silage the following spring should be sprayed in the preceding autumn. Fields to be grazed should be treated in the spring. Common ragwort will require spraying over a minimum of two years for complete control.

CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
Crop
Grassland

Maximum dose rate 3.5 l/ha.
Maximum total dose 3.5 l/ha.
Timing
April to September
Water volume 100–400 litres of water per hectare. For use in knapsack sprayer the minimum water volume is 200 litres per hectare.

Amenity grassland
Maximum dose rate
3.5 l/ha
Maximum total dose 7.0 l/ha
Timing
April to September Interval between applications Six weeks.
Water volume 100–400 litres of water per hectare. For use in knapsack sprayer the minimum water volume is 200 litres of water per hectare.

MIXING AND SPRAYING
Before use ensure that the spraying equipment has been thoroughly cleaned. Half-fill the spray tank with clean water. With the contents of the spray tank under re-circulation, add the measured quantities of THRUST through the filter. Top up the tank with water to the required level and maintain re-circulation until the tank is sprayed out.
Apply the recommended quantity of THRUST through a conventional hydraulic sprayer using a MEDIUM spray to cover the weed leaves evenly and thoroughly.
After each day’s use wash out with water and wetting agent. Wash out again with water, drain and allow to dry. Traces of herbicide left in the sprayer may damage susceptible crops if these are subsequently sprayed using the same equipment.
Avoid spray drift onto neighbouring crops and all broadleaved plants outside the target area. Do not spray in windy weather. Beets, all brassicas including oilseed rape, lettuce, peas, potatoes, tomatoes, all fruit crops and ornamentals are particularly susceptible to 2,4-D and may be damaged by spray drift.

Knapsack application
This method is recommended for spot treatment of weeds and patches of Docks. Apply as a medium spray to just before run-off occurs.

Size Of Knapsack: 10 litres
Amount Of THRUST:
90 ml
Water Volume:
9.91 litres

Size Of Knapsack: 20 litres

WEATHER AND GROWING CONDITIONS
Apply to a dry crop when rain is not forecast for at least 12 hours. Optimum results are obtained when the weeds are actively growing under good soil and weather conditions. Reduced weed control may be obtained during drought or cold weather. If rain falls shortly after application the effect of THRUST may be reduced.

Resistance management
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 to be resistant to a herbicide if it survives a correctly applied treatment at the recommended dose. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted. This should include integrating herbicides with a programme of cultural control measures. Guidelines have been produced by the Weed Resistance Action Group and copies are available from the HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or Nufarm UK.
