Harmony® 50SG is a soluble granule to be mixed with water and applied as a foliar spray for control of buttercups and docks in pasture and cereals. It can also be used for conservation tillage. Best results are obtained in the spring when weeds are actively growing within a vigorous, competitive pasture or cereal crop. Harmony® 50SG stops growth of susceptible weeds, however, typical symptoms (discolouration) of dying weeds may not be noticeable for 2 - 3 weeks after application. DO NOT apply Harmony® 50SG to pasture or cereal crops that are stressed by weather conditions such as drought, frost, water saturated soil or insect attack. Otherwise crop damage may occur. DO NOT apply to grass or clover seed crops or hay crops.
Experience to date suggests that Harmony® 50SG is compatible with MCPA, MCPB, 2,4-D and glyphosate. However, a reduction in long term control of docks has occurred when tank mixed with 2,4-D or MCPA.
Resistance Weeds Warning
Harmony® 50SG herbicide is a member of the sulfonylurea group of herbicides. Naturally occurring biotypes resistant to sulfonylurea herbicides are known to exist. These resistant weeds will not be controlled by Harmony® 50SG or other sulfonylurea herbicides.
To prevent or delay the development of resistant weeds use Harmony® 50SG in tank mixes (if appropriate) and/or rotations with herbicides having different modes of action effective on the same weed species.
Since the occurrence of resistant weeds is difficult to detect prior to use, FMC accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Harmony® 50SG to control resistant weeds.
Harmony® 50SG mixes easily with water. For best results the following mixing procedure should be followed. Using the measuring guide provided, measure the correct amount of Harmony® 50SG required for the area to be sprayed and add to the tank. Agitation during mixing and application is required. Use Harmony® 50SG spray mixtures within 24 hours of preparation as product degradation may occur.
Spray Volumes: Use a well maintained, accurately calibrated sprayer. A range of 60 - 300 litres per hectare is recommended. Avoid overlapping and shut off spray booms while starting, slowing or stopping as pasture/crop damage may occur.
PASTURE: Apply Harmony® 50SG 1 - 2 weeks after the area has been grazed, when the maximum number of weed seedlings and young plants are present. Rain occurring up to 4 hours after application may reduce the effectiveness of the product.
Knapsack Application: Mix 1.5 g Harmony® 50SG in 10 litres water and apply to 500 m2.
WHEAT, BARLEY, OATS: Apply 30 g Harmony® 50SG per hectare plus surfactant at any time after the crop is in the two leaf stage but before the ‘boot’ stage. For best results apply to small actively growing weeds before crop canopy closes in. Where treatment is delayed or where weeds are not actively growing due to adverse conditions, weeds may only be stunted or suppressed. The following weeds are controlled by Harmony® 50SG: Docks, Buttercups (Annual), Creeping Buttercup, Cornbind.
Spray Equipment Cleanout
To avoid subsequent injury to crops after spraying thoroughly remove all traces of Harmony® 50SG from spray equipment as follows:
Drain tank, then flush tank, boom and hoses with clean water for a minimum of 10 minutes.
Fill the tank with clean water and add 1 litre chlorine bleach (containing 3% solution sodium hypochlorite) per 100 litres of water. Flush through with agitation, then drain.
Repeat step 2.
Nozzles and screens should be removed and cleaned separately. To remove traces of chlorine bleach, rinse the tank thoroughly with clean water and flush through hoses and boom.
