- Apply ‘medium’ spray as defined by BCPC
- Grazing animal exclusion: 7days (longer if poisonous weeds ie ragwort are present)
- There is more of a demand for manure to part replace peat in some manufactured composts and more home-grown vegetable production. As a result products containing clopyralid, such as Leystar, should not be used on grass which is going to be made into hay. This will in turn reduce the likelihood of clopyralid residues being found in manure which would affect sensitive crops.
Recommended appropriate PPE for when using Leystar - Face shield, gloves & coveralls. See our safety clothing bundle for a discounted bundle price
