  • For outdoor carrots, parsnips and celeriac (EAMU 0916 of 2015), Sencorex Flow is applied pre-emergence at a dose rate of 0.875 l/ha. Two applications can be made, with a 21-day interval between, while harvest interval is four weeks.
  • In outdoor asparagus (EAMU 0917 of 2015), it should be applied before the end of dormancy at the same rate.
  • For outdoor sweet potatoes (EAMU 0915 of 2015) the maximum dose rate is 0.4 l/ha, applied pre- or post-planting but before shoots exceed 15cm. Two applications can be made with a maximum total dose of 1.15 l/ha.

Sencorex Flow already has a label recommendation for use in potatoes and an EAMU for outdoor ornamentals.

It controls most common spring-germinating weeds, including most polygonums, mayweeds, small nettle, common poppy, speedwells and smooth sow-thistle, and is also effective against grasses.
