Application Advice

Application Timing

Perennial grasses can be controlled during an extended period of time from tillering stage on up to post flowering, but before onset of natural or enforced senescence.

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.


Wear protective clothing: overalls, footwear, gloves, and face shield when preparing and using the product. Do not eat, drink or smoke while using it. Avoid inhaling spray mist, contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not apply upwind and stay out of the spray mist.

After Work

Wash hands before breaks and at end of work. Change clothes and wash hands and face with soap and water thoroughly. Wash the spraying equipment and any contaminated clothing carefully.


Keep out of reach of children. Store in tightly closed original container in a cool dry and well ventilated place, under lock and key so that unauthorized persons do not have access. Keep away from food, drinks and animal feeds.


Tripple rinse the bottle and puncture or perforate it and dispose off in a landfill site approved for pesticides or burry away from water resources or return to stockist/distributor. The rinsate should be disposed off away from surface water to avoid contamination. Do not re-use the empty container for any other purpose.

Leakage and spillage

Wear protective clothing. Use sand or sawdust to absorb the chemical and collect it using a shovel. Put in authorized disposing containers. Do not contaminate waterways and rivers. In case of large spills, consult the distributor.
