Use: as a herbicide for the protection of outdoor leek, salad onion and chive. Springbok has not been tested at a full range of dose rates on leeks in the UK. Therefore, growers are strongly advised to test crop safety on a small area of crop prior to wide-scale use. Tank-mixes should also be tested for crop safety.
A maximum individual dose of 2 litres of product per hectare should be used per application with a maximum total dose per year of 2.5 litres of product per hectare. The latest time of application is before the four-leaf stage of the crop.
Herbicides are more prone to leaching on loose, puffy seedbeds. Heavy rainfall or irrigation soon after application may result in crop damage. Do not apply when heavy rain is forecast.
