Where can Buckwheat Cereal Herbicide be used;
Buckwheat Herbicide is a Group I herbicide that affects cell wall plasticity and nucleic acid metabolism, leading to uncontrolled cell division and growth, which causes vascular tissue destruction. After application, symptoms include stem twisting and/or leaf malformations which can be seen within days of treatment, followed by chlorosis of the growing point. Weed death is slow.
Picloram, one of the active constituents in this product, remains active in the soil for extended periods depending on the rate of application, soil type, rainfall, temperature, humidity, soil moisture and soil organic matter. Susceptible broadleaf crops planted within 12 months of applying the product may be affected. See the minimum re-cropping periods on the product label.
How can Buckwheat Cereal Herbicide be applied;
- Ground application (Boom) – Apply Buckwheat Herbicide with an accurately calibrated boom sprayer in at least 50L/ha of water. Flat fan nozzles are recommended using pressures in the range 200-300kPa. Set the boom height to ensure double overlap of the nozzle pattern.
- Aerial Application – Apply in a minimum volume of 35L/ha of water. Use equipment calibrated to produce droplets with an average diameter (Volume Mean Diameter) of 200-250 microns. Do not apply when the temperature is above 30°C, when there is no wind or when the wind is blowing toward susceptible crops.
