PSD extends use of Aramo with 50g/ litre tepraloxydim

Pesticide chiefs have extended approved use Aramo, containing the active ingredient 50g/ litre tepraloxydim.

The product, marketed by BASF, can be used only as a horticultural herbicide, said the notice by the Pesticides Safety Directorate, which highlighted use on outdoor crops of swede and turnips.

"This approval relates to the use of Aramo (M10280) for grass weed control," it said, advising growers to test a small area of crop before widespread use.

Crops should be treated when the crop had fully expanded cotyledons and application was by conventional horizontal boom sprayers, said the PSD.

Operators had to wear suitable protective gloves. Other restrictions included a limit on application, ruling out use between 1 November and 31 March.

"To avoid the build up of resistance do not apply products containing an ACCase inhibitor herbicide more than twice to any crop," said the notice.

"In addition, do not use this product in mixture or sequence with any other product containing tepraloxydim."
