Critical comments: latest time of application: before 5th true leaf stage (GS15).
Some soil moisture must be present for Wing-P to be activated. Best results will be obtained if rainfall occurs within seven days of application.
Residual control may be reduced:
- under prolonged dry conditions
- on soils with a high Kd factor
- where organic matter exceeds 6%
- where ash content is high
DO NOT disturb the soil after Wing-P has been applied as this will result in reduced weed control. Where cultural techniques which encourage the build up of organic residues in the surface soil are practised for a number of seasons, the effectiveness of residual herbicides may be reduced. In such circumstances periodic ploughing is recommended to disperse residues into a greater volume of soil.
Wing-P may be used on all mineral soil types. DO NOT use on soils with more than 10% organic matter. On stony or gravely soils there is a risk of crop damage, especially if heavy rain falls soon after application. Do not use on water logged soil or soils prone to water logging.
Trash and straw should be incorporated evenly during seedbed preparation. Seedbed must have a fine, firm tilth. Consolidate loose or cloddy seedbeds before use. Following pre-emergence applications, unconsolidated clods (especially if larger than 75mm (3“) diameter) may reduce the level of weed control and cause seed to be inadequately covered, which could result in crop damage.
Extreme care should be taken to avoid damage by drift onto plants outside the target area. Do not apply Wing-P to crops suffering from stress, which may be caused for example by pests, disease, water logging, poor seedbed conditions or previous chemical treatment. Seed should be covered with a minimum of 5 cm of settled soil. Shallow drilled crops should be treated post-emergence. Care should be taken to avoid overlap of spray swaths. Do not soil incorporate. Do not undersow crops treated with Wing-P.
Before using Wing-P on crops to be processed please consult your processor. Concentrated or diluted Wing-P will stain. Avoid spillage. Staining is minimised or completely removed if skin and clothes are washed immediately. Hose down machinery immediately after use with a spray tank cleaner. Professional use only. For use by tractor mounted/trailed sprayer only.
Resistance management Strains of some annual grasses (eg Black-grass, Wild-Oats, and Italian Ryegrass) have developed resistance to herbicides, which may lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted. Guidelines have been produced by the Weed Resistance Action Group and copies are available from the HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.
Following crops after normal harvest Before Rye grass is drilled after a very dry season, plough or cultivate to at least 15cm. For crops other than cereals plough or cultivate to at least 15cm. 4.2 In the event of crop failure In the event of crop failure the land must be ploughed or thoroughly cultivated to a minimum depth of 15cm to ensure any residues are evenly dispersed throughout the soil.
Mixing and Application
Containers of greater than 20 litres capacity should only be handled with mechanical assistance. [Only for containers > 20 L capacity]
Never prepare more spray solution than is required. Half fill the tank with clean water and start the agitation. To ensure thorough mixing of the product, invert the container several times before opening. Add the required quantity of Wing-P to the spray tank while re-circulating. Fill up the tank with water and continue agitation until spraying is completed. When tank mixes are to be used, take due note of any instructions given as to the order of mixing. Each product should be added separately to the spray tank and fully dispersed before the addition of any further product(s).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. This product may only be used in a tank mix or in sequence with other products when these uses comply with the label recommendations of every product in the tank mix/sequence.
Ensure good, even spray cover of the target using a FINE or MEDIUM quality spray, as defined by BCPC. Apply Wing-P in 200-400 l/ha.
Wing-P may be applied at 4 litres per hectare in 100 litres water per hectare although efficacy at this reduced volume has not been evaluated. Therefore application at 100 litres water per hectare is at user’s risk with regard to biological efficacy.
After spraying, thoroughly clean and flush out application machinery with a minimum of three rinses, to ensure that all traces of product are removed.
