Application Tips

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

  • Although the time of application should primarily relate to the stage of weed growth, the crop must also be in a tolerant stage as shown below.
  • The information on usual crop stage for optimum weed control may also serve as a guide to spray timing.
