Product Information

SC formulations containing 400g flufenacet and 100g diflufenican for pre-emergence and post-crop emergence use in winter wheat, spring wheat, winter barley and spring barley.

A quick-reference summary of the new label changes:
  • Addition of approvals for use in Spring Barley and Spring Wheat at a 0.3 L/ha maximum individual and maximum total dose.
  • Extension of the final application date from 31st Dec to 31st March for Winter Wheat and Winter Barley.
  • Increase in the maximum total dose allowed on Winter Wheat and Winter Barley from 0.6 L/ha to 0.9 L/ha via a split dose sequence*.

*A second application of 0.3 L/ha (now label approved) may give an additional contribution to the residual control of black-grass and annual meadow-grass in winter wheat and winter barley, especially if germination is protracted or emergence after application is expected and when used as part of a grass weed management programme.
