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.
DO NOT roll or harrow crops within 10 days of spraying.
DO NOT apply during cold weather or drought.
DO NOT apply during rain or if rain is expected.
DO NOT spray in windy weather and avoid drift onto broadleaved plants outside the target area.
DO NOT apply immediately before or after sowing any crop.
DO NOT use TROPOTOX on peas grown for seed.
DO NOT use TROPOTOX on beans, vetches, lucerne or yellow trefoil.

TROPOTOX applied at 4.5 l/ha will control those annual weeds as indicated in the weed control table.
TROPOTOX should be applied when the crop is actively growing and is at the correct growth stage. The best results will be obtained if spraying is done while the majority of annual weeds are at the seedling stage and for perennials when the flower bud is forming.

Moderately susceptible Effective control of seedlings but not necessarily complete control.
Charlock, Commn Fumitory Common hemp-nettle, Common poppy, Pickly Sowthistle, Smooth sowthistle, Colunteer oilseed rape

* These are provisional recommendations based on two years of crop safety trials. Contact your supplier for further details.

For further information on varietal susceptibility consult PGRO.
Water volume
On peas use a rate of 200 to 400 litres of water per hectare.
Use a minimum rate of 225 l/ha in dense crops, or if weed growth is dense.

Spray quality
Apply as a MEDIUM quality spray (as defined by BCPC). A spray pressure of 2–3 bar is recommended.

TROPOTOX should only be applied to peas when the crop is at the correct growth stage.
Application should be made from when the crop has three nodes (three fully expanded leaves) until BEFORE the flower buds can be found enclosed in the folded terminal leaf.
Particular care should be taken when treating earlier flowering varieties to ensure that flower buds can not be detected at application.
Later applications made when the flower buds are present may result in reduced yield.
Crops suffering from drought stress may exhibit more visible crop damage or growth distortion.

Apply using a conventional ground vehicle mounted/drawn equipment. Ensure that all application equipment is clean. Add half the required volume of water and start agitation, add the required quantity of TROPOTOX. Fill the tank to the required volume of water whilst maintaining agitation. Continuous agitation must be maintained until spraying is complete. After use, the spraying machine must be thoroughly cleaned.
Wash equipment thoroughly with water and wetting agent or liquid detergent immediately after use. Wash out again with water, drain and allow drying.
Spray out, fill with clean water and leave overnight. Spray out again before storing or using for another product. Traces of TROPOTOX can cause harm to susceptible crops sprayed later.
