MILAGRO 240 OD is an oil dispersion formulation containing 240 g/litre (23.5% w/w) nicosulfuron
TARGETS: For control of a range of grass and broad-leaved weeds in grain and forage maize.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. All instructions within this section must be carefully read in order to obtain safe and successful use of this   product.

WEED CONTROL
The susceptibility ratings of weeds in the following table assume good spray cover and good growing conditions. An esterified rapeseed oil adjuvant should be used with the herbicide, at a concentration of 0.5% of total spray volume for improved control of fat hen, black nightshade and redshank to moderately susceptible. Headland Fortune (ADJ 0703) isrecommended.

SOIL TYPES AND WEATHER CONDITIONS
MILAGRO 240 OD can be applied to all soil types. Very dry soil conditions may reduce weed   control

CAUTIONS:
Do not mix with foliar or liquid fertilisers or   micronutrients.
Under certain conditions, some transient yellowing, crop stunting and/or loss of vigour may be observed within1-2weeksaftertreatment.Thesewillsoonbeoutgrownandwillnotadverselyaffectyield.
Do not apply this product to any crop suffering from stress as this may lead to more persistent crop damage. Avoidoverlappingsprayswathswhichmaycausesubstantialcropdamageleadingtolossofyield.
Strains of some annual grass weeds (e.g. black-grass, wild-oat, Italian rye-grass) have developed resistance to herbicides which may lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing resistance should be adopted.GuidelineshavebeenproducedbytheWeedResistanceActionGroupandcopiesareavailablefrom the HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.

Do not apply this product to any maize crop in sequence or in tank-mixture with any product containing an ‘ALS-inhibiting’ herbicide.
Susceptible weeds: Generally 85-100% control may be expected in good conditions   Moderately susceptible weeds: Generally 75-85% control may be expected in good conditions Moderately resistant weeds: Generally 60-75% control may be expected in good   conditions

WEED RESISTANCE
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 dominant. A weed species is considered resistant to a herbicide if it survives 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. This is particularly important if continuous maize is grown. MILAGRO 240 OD is a sufonylurea herbicide. Its mode of action is via ALS-inhibition. Use only as part of a resistance strategy that includes cultural methods of control and does not use MILAGRO 240 OD or any other ALS-inhibitors as the sole chemical method of grass-weed   control.
A strategy for preventing and managing resistance should be adopted. The Weed Resistance Action Groups have produced guidelines and copies are available from HGCA, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.
This product contains nicosulfuron which is an ALS-inhibitor, also classified by the Herbicide Resistance Action Committee as ‘Group B’.

APPLICATION RATES AND TIMINGS
Apply 170ml/ha at the 2 to 8 leaf stage of the crop (2-leaf to early tillering stage of grass weeds; 2 to 6 leaf stage of broad-leaved weeds).

WATER VOLUME
Apply in 200 – 400 litres of water per hectare, using suitable equipment to give good spray cover of the weeds. WhenapplyingMILAGRO240ODextremecareshouldbetakennottooverlapsprayswaths.MILAGRO240OD should be applied as a MEDIUM spray (as defined byBCPC)
