Information on crops and pests

Pests Recommended rate Time of application Number of application
Broadleaf weeds 1 lt / ha Euro–Lightning® SHOULD ALWAYS BE PART OF A PROGRAMME APPLICATION. Always start the programme by using a pre–emergent grass herbicide, namely Lasso® MT (Reg. No. L 4728), Dual Gold® (Reg. No. L 5749) or Metagan Gold® (Reg. No. L 5748).Post–emergent applicationEuro–Lightning®must be applied at the 2 – 6 leaf stage of the weeds. Any grass weeds must be treated before tillering starts. The sunflower seedlings must be between the 2– and 6–leaf stages. It is therefore important to apply when most weeds have emerged together with consideration of the crop stage, but do not delay application beyond this time as reduced efficacy can be expected for older weeds.THE TIMING OF THIS APPLICATION SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY 32 DAYS AFTER PLANTING.Ground application: Apply Euro–Lightning® in 150 – 250 lt water / ha.Aerial application is not recommended
