Sandy soils - 3.75 L/ha
Loam soils - 4.58 L/ha
Muck soils - 7.08 L/ha
Celery/Peas: 3.75 L to 4.58 L/ha
Leeks: 3.75L/ha at each application timing
Apply in 200 to 1000 L of water per hectare (20 to 100 gallons per acre)
Spray at pressure of 200 to 300 kPa.
CARROTS: Prepare a firm, level seedbed free from large air spaces. Apply Gesagard herbicide soon after planting and before carrots emerge. Cultivation will not normally be required for at least 6 weeks, and should not be carried out before 4 weeks unless necessary for weed control. Do not apply Gesagard at or near the time of emergence of the carrots. Make only one application of Gesagard per season. Allow a minimum of 85 days between application and harvest of the carrots.
CELERY (transplanted crop): Apply Gesagard as an overall spray after the celery transplants are well established (at least 21days). The treatment may be pre-emergence or early post-emergence to the weeds, but must be applied before weeds are 5 cm high. Make only one application of Gesagard per season. Allow a minimum of 54 days between application and harvest of the celery.
PEAS (fresh, processing and dry): Apply Gesagard soon after planting but before emergence of the peas. If the soil is dry and rainfall not expected, light incorporation by harrowing will usually improve results. Use lower rate on sandy soils. Make only one application of Gesagard per season. Allow minimum of 55 days between application and harvest of the peas.
LEEKS: Apply Gesagard as a split application to leeks in either mineral or organic soils. Make the first application to well established transplanted leeks that have produced one new fully expanded leaf. Make a second application 10 days later. Make a maximum of two applications per year.

Wash out sprayer, boom and nozzles to ensure that no trace of previous chemical remains.
Ensure that nozzle tips are clean and of correct size. Use nozzle screens not finer than 50 mesh.
Apply in 200 to 1000 L of water per hectare. Spray at pressure of 200 to 300 kPa.
Fill tank with one-half of the required amount of water.
Add the required amount of Gesagard 480SC herbicide (see Directions for Use above). Top up with the required amount of water and mix well by agitating.
Ensure that spray boom is set at the proper height to give good spray coverage.
Commence spraying, being careful to maintain correct and uniform spray pressure and tractor speed. It is important to avoid overdosing on headlands and when commencing or stopping spraying.
