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.
RESTRICTIONS OR WARNINGS
DO NOT apply when crop is under stress, such as in frosty weather
or when frost is expected, insect attack, manganese deficiency,
wind damage or where there is possible check from earlier pesticide
DO NOT hoe beet crops within 21 days of application as weed control
may be reduced.
A period of at least twelve hours without rain should follow
spraying otherwise weed control may be reduced.
CONSULT PROCESSORS BEFORE USING ON CROPS RECOMMENDED FOR
AVOID DRIFT onto neighbouring crops, especially cereal crops.
In some situations 5% Quizalofop-P-ethyl 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.
Strains of some annual grasses e.g. blackgrass, wild oats and
Italian ryegrass have developed resistance to herbicides which may
lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing
herbicide resistant grass weeds should be adopted.
Guidelines have been produced by the Weed Resistance Action Group.
This product contains quizalofop-p-ethyl which is an ACCase
inhibitor, also classified by the Herbicide Resistance Action
Committee as ‘Group A’.
• 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 5% Quizalofop-P-ethyl EC or any other ACCase inhibitor
as the sole means of grass weed control in successive crops.
For best results apply when weeds are actively growing. Weed
foliage should be dry, but soil conditions damp to aid
translocation up the weed. Weeds emerging after application will
not be controlled.
Annual Grasses and Volunteer Cereals
Apply from when the weeds have 2 leaves to fully tillered stage.
Perennial ryegrass (only controlled when grown
5% Quizalofop-P-ethyl EC can contribute to the control of
blackgrass as part of a herbicide resistance management strategy,
involving mixtures and sequences with herbicides of alternative
modes of action. Where resistant biotypes are present, control from
5% Quizalofop-P-ethyl EC will be unacceptable.
Apply from when the weeds have 4-6 leaves to first node detectable
The effects of 5% Quizalofop-P-ethyl EC on long term control of
perennial weeds (i.e. in succeeding crops) has not been fully
The table below shows the rates of use required in each crop to
control the weeds listed above:
|Oilseed rape||All other crops|
|Barren brome, volunteer cereals, wild oats (up to 2 tillers)||0.75 L/ha 3||-|
|Annual grasses and volunteer cereals (up to fully tillered)||1.25 L/ha||1.25 L/ha|
|Common couch||1.25 L/ha1||2.5 L/ha 2|
1. Common couch is only moderately susceptible to 1.25 L/ha dose
2. In severe infestations of common couch, a follow-up treatment
with a different herbicide may be required if fresh growth occurs
3. Winter oilseed rape only
CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
All varieties of beet crops, oilseed rape, potatoes, linseed, field
beans peanuts and peas may be safely treated.
Sugar beet, fodder beet,
red beet and mangels
Apply from when crop has 2 expanded leaves.
Do not spray after the end of July.
Apply from the expanded cotyledon stage and
before the crop covers the larger weeds.
|Peas and beans, linseed||2.5|
Apply when weeds are at their correct stage of
growth and before the crop covers them.
Apply from 4 leaf stage of crop and before the
crop covers the weeds.
If application is made in sequence with other herbicides the
following application intervals must be noted; Beet crops; 3 days,
Oilseed rape; 14 days; Others 21 days.
CROP FAILURE: If a crop fails for any reason, only re-drill with
the following crops, observing the interval specified between
application and re-drilling.
|Following crop||Rate of Use||Minimum interval|
Peas, field beans, oilseed rape
and other broad-leaved crops*
|Up to 2.5 L/ha||2 weeks|
|Winter wheat, winter barley||Up to 1.25 L/ha||2 weeks|
|Up to 2.5 L/ha||6 weeks|
|Winter oats||Up to 2.5 L/ha||16 weeks|
*Onions, leeks and maize: do not drill as a following crop in a
crop failure situation.
MIXING AND SPRAYING
5% Quizalofop-P-ethyl 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 5% Quizalofop-P-ethyl 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
