Spectrum of Efficacy

ALIACINE 400 EC is a herbicide which is absorbed by the subterranean parts of the weeds. It is therefore important to apply the product to a weed free soil. Newly emerging weeds will also be controlled if they belong to the group of sensitive species. ALIACINE 400 EC is effective against a number of annual weeds

Susceptible weeds Moderately susceptible weeds
Black-grass, Annual meadow grass, Black-bindweed, Common chickweed, Common hemp nettle, Common poppy, Knotgrass, Field penny-cress, Pale persicaria, Small nettle, Speedwells and Wild oat. Black nightshade, Common orache, Common fumitory, Fat hen, Fig-leaved goosefoot, Hedge bindweed, Redshank and Shepherd’s purse.

Note that Composites (groundsel, Smooth sow-thistle, mayweed and others) and cleavers are resistant. Perennial weeds are not controlled.

Directions of Use

Apply before weeds have emerged.

Seeds must be well covered with soil.

Resistance

Strains of some annual grasses, e.g. black-grass, wild-oats, and Italian rye-grass, have developed resistance to herbicides which may lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted. Guidelines have been produced by the Weed Resistance Action Group and copies are available from the AHDB, CPA, your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.

Soils

ALIACINE 400 EC can be used on all soils, except on sandy soils with less than 1% organic matter and on sandy open textured soils due to the risk of wash out to the roots of the crops. Seedbeds should be fine and moist for best results. Do not disturb the soil after application of ALIACINE 400 EC.

Application

Preferably apply on moist soil and not too high temperatures, i.e. ideally in autumn or spring. Under ideal circumstances, there should be some light rain afterwards. Do not apply when heavy rainfall is predicted shortly after the application. Drought after the application can make the treatment less effective. Spraying under windy conditions could lead to uneven distribution over the field and drift to adjacent crops and should therefore be avoided.

FOLLOWING CROPS

It is advised to cultivate treated land to a depth of 15 cm before planting succeeding crops.

Safety

Do not apply by hand-held equipment.

Do not spray in the vicinity of crops which are ready to harvest. Avoid spray drift, especially to very sensitive crops such as flax, poppy seeds, cereals (during or before flowering), cucumber, tomatoes, melons and gherkins. Avoid overlapping of spray swaths.

The variety of nursery plants and plants for public gardens is extensive and the sensitivity of the product can vary greatly, even within the same species. It is therefore recommended that for the first use of this product, a small scale test is carried out according to the prevailing conditions at the farm or nursery where it will be used.

Application of the product to Anemone and Ranunculus is not advisable.
