Application Advice

Directions for Use

Rain or irrigation is essential for activation of the residual effect of Galigan 240 EC. Pre-emergence control is most effective when Galigan 240 EC is applied to weed-free established soil surfaces. After weeds or soil surfaces are sprayed, they should not be disked or cultivated in any manner. In post-emergence sprays, Galigan 240 EC is most effective against annual broadleaf weeds when they are less than 10 cm high and at the 1-2 leaf stage of susceptible annual grass weeds.

N/B: Do not disturb the soil surface after Galigan 240 EC has been applied, as any soil disturbance will reduce weed control efficacy. Do not apply Galigan 240 EC after transplanting of cabbages and tomatoes as this will cause severe crop injury.
