Lenns™ Herbicide Product Overview & Infographic
Lenns™ is a unique combination herbicide that will provide pre-emergent as well as post-emergent control of especially difficult-to-control weeds, like fleabane and buckhorn plantain, in stone fruit. Before Lenns™ there were only post-emergent options available.
Which crops can Lenns™ be used on?
Is it safe?
Handle with care. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Store in the closed, original container in a locked, cool, well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight. Do not mix, store or apply in galvanised steel or unlined steel containers (the exception being stainless steel), as a reaction will produce combustible hydrogen gas. Store away from food, feeds, seed and other agricultural chemicals. Read the full list of precautions on the label.
Lenns™ is classified as a HRAC group code 9 and 12 herbicide. For further advice on the prevention of herbicide resistance, contact your ADAMA field agent.
Lenns™ provides post- and, more importantly, residual pre-emergent control of especially difficult to control weeds.
- Flax-leaf fleabane/hairy fleabane/asthma weed – Conyza bonariensis (syn Erigeron bonariensis)
- Buckhorn plantain – Plantago lanceolata
- Wild/prickly lettuce – Lactuca serriola
- Additional weeds not listed may also be controlled, but the registration holder will not accept responsibility for the control of weeds not listed on the label.
NOTE: Use and apply only as directed on the Lenns™ label.
- Half-fill the spray tank with clean water.
- Shake Lenns™ container well prior to opening, then add the required quantity to the spray tank while agitating.
- While agitating, top-up the spray tank with water to the required volume.
- Ensure constant effective agitation during mixing and application.
NOTE: Only prepare enough spray mixture for one day’s use. Spray mixture should not be allowed to stand overnight.
If tank-mixing Lenns™ with other products, a physical compatibility test must be conducted prior to application. To determine physical compatibility, pour the required proportions of the product(s) into a suitable container. After mixing, wait for 30 minutes and check to see if the product remains in mixture. Products that remain in mixture, are considered physically compatible.
Consult the Lenns™ label for comprehensive usage directions and restrictions, some of which include:
- Apply Lenns™ in spring, after weed emergence, directing the application to the foliage and immature stems of actively and vigorously growing weeds.
- Refrain from sprinkler irrigation for 12 hours after application and do not apply Lenns™ when rain is expected within six hours of spraying, or in windy conditions.
- Do not apply Lenns™ to orchards that are under stress from drought, excessive heat, frost, water logging or herbicide damage.
- Prevent spray drift onto or contact with foliage and fruits of cultivated crops and young stems of trees that have not yet become woody.
- To minimise the risk to aquatic life, do not spray within 2 m of the top of the bank of any water or to the top of a ditch even if dry at the time of application.
- Do not apply LENNS™ more than once in 18 months. Diflufenican can accumulate in the soil when LENNS™ or other products containing diflufenican are applied in successive years.
- Do not add any wetting agent or adjuvant oil before consulting ADAMA South Africa (Pty) Ltd.
