DICOPHAR can be applied on lawns, sports or amenity grasslands once a year during the whole vegetative
period of the weeds (from April to end September).
Apply DICOPHAR with a knapsack sprayer at the dose rate of 100 ml in 10 litres water/100 m². Alternatively,
apply DICOPHAR with a watering can (medium rose) at the dose rate of 10 ml in 10 litres water/10 m². For
optimum control use a knapsack sprayer.
The activity of DICOPHAR is promoted by climatic conditions which favour photosynthesis such as warm
temperatures and sunny conditions. Avoid treatment during dry periods and when rain is expected within 24 hours
after the treatment. Do not spray to grass suffering from drought or during freezing conditions. May take up to 3
weeks before weed destruction is seen. Do not re-apply if weed destruction is not seen directly after treatment.
To eliminate hardy broad-leaved weeds, DICOPHAR must be used on sufficiently developed plants. Therefore
treatments should not be made immediately after mowing. For best results, apply the product at least 5 days after
the last mowing and wait 7 days after application before mowing again. Safety to crops grown for seed
production has not been established. Do not use on new grass for 6 months after establishment. When renovating
treated areas an interval of 6-8 weeks should elapse before re-seeding.
It is recommended to rinse the sprayer/watering can thoroughly after use, by using a suitable product (e.g. 1%
ammonia solution or 1% sodium carbonate) or manually rinsing three times. Dispose of washings safely. Wash
out again with clean water before using another product.
The activity of DICOPHAR will only persist up to 3 months after treatment.
