Best Application Practices

Timing of Application Best Practices

The application is led by the vegetative stage of weeds. The ideal timing for application is when the weeds are small and actively growing. In case of application time at later stages efficacy may decrease, depending of the weeds. Applications window registered varies by formulations.

Application and Water Management Best Practices:

Rinskor formulations can be applied to dried paddy, even in “wets-dries” and in paddy with sowing in dry soil (upland).

Dried paddy in saturated soil or in “wet-dries”: 

Apply Rinskor™ formulations as soon as the paddy has finished draining and flood again 1-3 days after application. Avoid applying the product if some water is present in the paddy that still cover the majority part of the plant weeds. Residual water that  remains in field does not adversely affect weed control as long as the surface of individual weeds is exposed for at least 80% to the herbicide treatment.

Paddy with sowing in dry soil (upland)

Apply Rinskor™ formulations on dried soil with adequate soil moisture and actively growing weeds, 1-3 days before entering the water.

Flood the paddy 1-3 days after application reaching a level of water that plenty cover all parts of the rice field, keeping such level of water as long as possible. If applied twice per season, the paddy should be flooded between first and second application.

Climatic Conditions Best Application Practices:

Best weed control results are obtained when Rinskor™ formulations are applied to actively growing weeds, when temperature are warm and soil moisture is adequate to support active growth. If weeds are under drought stress, it is recommended to delay application until more favorable conditions resume.

In dry seeded rice (up land), flushing of rice field may be required if rice or weeds are moisture stressed.

Applications made immediately prior to, during or immediately following periods of large day/night temperature fluctuations may decrease weed control and increase crop injury.

Re-infestation of some weeds may occur if a permanent flood is not established in a timely manner, 1-3 days after the application.

Poor weed control and crop injury may result from application made to plants under stress from abnormally hot or cold weather; environmental condition such as drought, or hail damage, prior herbicide application or soil with high salt content.

A rainfall at approximately 2 hours from the application does not adversely affect the herbicidal action of the product.

To guarantee the best selectivity it is suggested do not to apply Rinskor formulations on crops under stress for cold and/or drought, after pest attack, nutritional unbalances, etc., avoiding the overlap during the application or double spay at the end of the field. In case of crop under stress or adverse weather conditions, it may cause temporary slowdown in the growth of the crop, which does not undermine final production.
