Application Tips

Spraying Instructions

  • Ground Application: Use sprayers equipped with standard flat fan pesticide nozzles with the recommended spray volume, pressure and additives. Tilt spray nozzles 45 degrees forward to ensure better coverage.
  • Spray Volume: Minimum 40 L/ac (100 L/ha). Use larger water volumes (up to 120 L/ac) for weeds at the upper limit of their recommended stage for treatment.
  • Spray Pressure: Minimum 275 kPa. Use higher pressure (use up to 425 kPa) for weeds at the upper limit of their recommended stage for treatment.

Note: Use a minimum of 80 L/ac if crop canopy or heavy weed population interferes with thorough spray coverage, or under cool temperature.

When to Apply

Application should be timed according to the stage of weed growth. However, the crop must also be in a tolerant stage (shown below).

Crop Application Timing

Crop

Tolerant at any growth stage

1 to 5 leaf stage

Faba beans

Tolerant after 2 or 3 leaf stage or crop is 10 cm high

Soon after 3 leaf stage

Flax (excluding low linolenic acid varieties)

Tolerant when crop is 5 cm or higher

Soon after crop reaches 5 cm

Peas (field and processing)

Tolerant after 3 nodes are present

Soon after 3 pairs of leaves form

How Much to Apply

Basagran Forté is available in cases of two 10-litre jugs or bulk, depending on individual requirements.

Rates
To improve control of velvetleaf or lamb's-quarters, add 2L/ac (6 L/ha) ammonium sulphate or 4 L/ac (10 L/ha) 28% urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) to either the 0.9 L/ac or the 0.7 L/ac rate of Basagran Forté.

  • Add Basagran Forté 0.5 - 0.7 L/ac + Pursuit®125 mL + Nitrogen Source 0.8 L/ac.
  • Add 0.5 L/ac Blazer to 0.5 L/ac rate of Basagran Forté.
  • Add Basagran Forté 0.9 L/ac + Pinnacle 2.2 - 3.2 g/ac herbicides.
  • Add Basagran Forté 0.7 L/ac + Pinnacle 2.2 - 3.2 g/ac herbicides.

Mixing Instructions

  1. Fill the tank half full with clean water. Start agitation or by-pass system.
  2. When required, add correct amount of nitrogen source. Do not add nitrogen source when tank-mixing Basagran Forté with Pinnacle.
  3. If required, add the correct amount of Pinnacle or PURSUIT. For use on soybeans only. Continuous agitation is required to keep Pinnacle or Pursuit in suspension. When using the Basagran Forté + Pinnacle tank-mix, prepare a Pinnacle water slurry in a separate container with clean water before adding to spray tank on repeat tank loads.
  4. Add correct amount of Basagran Forté and agitate 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Add remainder of water, agitate and spray.
  6. If an oil film starts to build up in the tank, drain and clean tank with a strong detergent solution.
  7. Thoroughly clean the spray tank immediately after use. Refer to specific tank mix partner label for clean-up instructions.

Tank Mixes

How to Tank Mix

For enhanced broad spectrum weed control in soybeans only, Basagran Forté can be tank-mixed with Pursuit®, or Pinnacle herbicides, depending on target weeds.

The following tables detail the tank-mix options available and the relative maximum weed leaf stage or weed height. For more detailed information, refer to tank-mix sections for each tank-mix partner.
