Annual weeds are controlled during a long period from an early stage up to flowering, provided they are actively growing and an adequate leafmass has developed at treatment time

Directions for Use

Application should be carefully directed to avoid any spray contact with green parts of the crop. Spraying should coincide with active growth particularly during long and short rains. Coffee should be established for at least 18 months before spraying can take place, otherwise injury by accidental trunk contact with Glyphogan 480 SL may occur.

Weather Conditions

Rain free period of at least 4-6 hours must follow spraying. Do not spray onto very wet weeds or weeds suffering from drought stress as reduced control may occur. Do not spray in windy conditions to avoid destruction of desirable vegetation due to drift.


Glyphogan 480 SL is toxic to fish and bees. To avoid damage to bee populations foliar treatments should not be applied during flowering of the target crop. Do not contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used packs.
