CONSULT PROCESSORS BEFORE USING ON CROPS RECOMMENDED FOR
AVOID DRIFT onto neighbouring crops, especially cereal crops.
In some situations Pretilachlor 30% EC may cause yellowing of the
foliage of pea crops. This is usually outgrown quickly.
Extreme care must be taken to avoid spray drift on to non-crop
plants outside of the target area.
A strategy for preventing and managing herbicide resistant grass
weeds should be adopted.
Guidelines have been produced by the Weed Resistance Action Group.
• To reduce the risk of developing resistance, applications should
be made to young, actively growing weeds. Use only as part of a
resistance management strategy that includes:
• Use crop rotation and other cultural control measures to prevent
and manage herbicide resistant grass weeds;
• Use of tank/product mixes or sequences of herbicides with
different modes of action within individual crops, or successive
• Use of grass weed herbicides with different modes of action
throughout the cropping rotation;
• Monitoring of weed control effectiveness and investigation of any
odd patches of poor grass weed control. If unexplained, contact
your agronomist who may consider a resistance test appropriate;
• Do not use Pretilachlor 30% EC as the sole means of grass weed
control in successive crops.
MIXING AND SPRAYING
Pretilachlor 30% EC should be applied as a FINE or MEDIUM spray (as
defined by BCPC) in 200-300 litres water per hectare.
Use the higher rate where crop and/or weed is dense and wild oats
are present. It is essential to get good coverage of the weeds to
get good control.
Ensure the sprayer is clean and in good working order. Calibrate
according to sprayer manufacturers’ recommendations.
Half-fill the spray tank with clean water and add the required
quantity of Pretilachlor 30% EC. Add the remainder of the water and
continue agitation until spraying is complete.
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.
Wash out the sprayer thoroughly after use by rinsing three times
