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. SHARK is a contact herbicide which can be used for weed control in potatoes and for weed control prior to
planting a subsequent crop (see Timing section). SHARK is a contact only herbicide. Weeds emerging after application will not be controlled.

WEED CONTROL
The following weeds are susceptible to SHARK, when applied early postemergence:

CROPS/SITUATIONS - Potatoes - All edible and non edible crops (prior to planting a subsequent crop)

SOIL TYPE Any soil type

TIMING POTATOES First Earlies – up to 5% emergence;
Second Earlies and Maincrops - up to 10% crop emergence

TIMING PRIOR TO PLANTING ASUBSEQUENT CROP 1 month before planting

RATE OF APPLICATION 0.333 l/ha

TIMING
Crop: SHARK may be applied from pre-crop emergence up to before 5% crop emergence (ie. 1 plant in 20 emerged) in first early varieties and before 10% crop
emergence (ie. 1 plant in 10 emerged) in second early and maincrop varieties. No plants should be more than 10 cm high in any case. Treatment may cause burn off of emerged potato shoots within 7-10 days. Subsequent crop growth and yield are unaffected.
Weed: For optimum control application should be made when weeds are between the cotyledon and 2-4 expanded leaf stage. Weeds emerging after application will not be controlled.

DOSE: The recommended dose of SHARK is 0.333 l/ha

VOLUME OF WATER AND SPRAY PRESSURE: Apply SHARK in 200 l of water per hectare at a minimum spray pressure of 3 Bar using a MEDIUM spray quality as defined by the BCPC. For use prior to planting a subsequent crop (spring/ summer only)

TIMING
Apply SHARK when the weeds are no bigger than the maximum growth stages stated in the weed control table. An interval of 1 month must be observed before planting any subsequent crop.

DOSE: The recommended dose of SHARK is 0.333 l/ha

VOLUME OF WATER AND SPRAY PRESSURE: Apply SHARK in 200 l of water per hectare at a minimum spray pressure of 3 Bar using a MEDIUM spray quality as defiined by the BCPC.

MIXING
SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE Half fill the spray tank with clean water. Commence agitation. Steadily pour the required amount of SHARK into the spray tank or induction bowl. Ensure all product has thoroughly mixed with the water and no traces are present in the induction bowl before adding any other product. Complete filling of the spray tank and maintain agitation until spraying is complete.

SPRAY TANK CLEAN-OUT
To avoid potential damage to other crops thoroughly clean all spray equipment (including inside and outside of the lid) using clean water:
1. Immediately after spraying of SHARK, drain tank completely. Any contamination of the outside of the spraying equipment should be removed by washing with water to which should be added a commercially available cleaning agent (eg. All Clear™ Extra)
2. Rinse the inside of the tank with clean water, to which should be added a commercially available cleaning agent (eg. All Clear™ Extra) and flush through the boom and hoses using at least one tenth of the spray tank volume. Drain tank completely. Repeat operation.
3. Do not contaminate surface waters or ditches with rinse
