The active ingredient is 750g/L chlormequat. The maximum individual dose is 0.5ml product per litre of water, with a maximum of 2 treatments per annum.
There is no latest time of application. Applications must be made by foliar spray via conventional hydraulic sprayers and hand held application equipment in a maximum water volume of 2500L/ha.
Treatment must only be made under ‘permanent protection’ situations which provide full enclosure (including continuous top and side barriers down to below ground level) and which are present and maintained over a number of years.
Workers must wear suitable protective gloves when handling treated crops or contaminated surfaces within 48 days after treatment, meeting at least glove safety standard EN374-2:2003, Level 2.
Gloves compliant with this standard can be identified by a CE Mark with four digits below, and will show the EN374 2017_00603 ORNAMENTALS pictogram for micro-biological hazards or the pictogram for ‘waterproof’ and ‘low chemical resistance’ gloves.
The EAMU was sought to replace the on-label use in protected ornamentals which was previously covered by Stabilan 750 but expired at the end of 2016. Neither the efficacy nor the phytotoxicity of the product for which this EAMU has been granted has been assessed and, as such, the user bears in mind the risk in respect of failures concerning its efficacy or phytotoxicity.
