What they eat:
Seeds and insects in summer.
The goldfinch is a highly coloured finch with a bright red face and yellow wing patch. Sociable, often breeding in loose colonies, they have a delightful liquid twittering song and call. Their long fine beaks allow them to extract otherwise inaccessible seeds from thistles and teasels. Increasingly they are visiting bird tables and feeders. In winter many UK goldfinches migrate as far south as Spain.
This bird species has different identifying features depending on sex/age/season.
GoldWing Herbicide + Glyphosate
Apply GoldWing Herbicide tank mixed with glyphosate prior to seeding or post-seeding before crop emergence. Rates and formulation of glyphosate are detailed in the following table. Follow all precautions, limitations, timing recommendations, crop rotations and sprayer cleanup on the tank mix partner product label.
Higher rates of glyphosate may be recommended in some situations. Refer to the glyphosate product label for further effective rates.
To avoid subsequent injury to crops, immediately after spraying and prior to spraying other crops, thoroughly remove all traces of GoldWing Herbicide from mixing and spray equipment as follows:
Drain tank; then flush tank, boom and hoses with clean water for a minimum of ten minutes.
Next, prepare a sprayer cleaning solution by adding 3 litres of ammonia (containing at least 3% active) per 100 litres of clean water. Prepare sufficient cleaning solution to allow the operation of the spray system for a minimum of 15 minutes to thoroughly flush the tank, hoses, spray boom and spray nozzles.
If possible, leave the ammonia solution or fresh water left in the spray tank, hoses, spray booms and spray nozzles overnight or during storage to dissolve and dilute any remaining traces of herbicide.
Nozzles and screens may be cleaned separately in a bucket containing cleaning agent and water.
DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
Use of the following spray methods or equipment DO NOT require a buffer zone: hand-held or backpack sprayer and spot treatment and soil incorporation. The buffer zones specified in the table below are required between the point of direct application and the closest downwind edge of sensitive terrestrial habitats (such as grasslands, forested areas, shelter belts, woodlots, hedgerows, riparian areas and shrub lands) and sensitive freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands).
For tank mixes, consult the labels of the tank-mix partners and observe the largest (most restrictive) buffer zone of the products involved in the tank mixture and apply using the coarsest spray (ASAE) category indicated on the labels for those tank mix partners. The buffer zones for this product can be modified based on weather conditions and spray equipment configuration by accessing the Buffer Zone Calculator on the Pest Management Regulatory Agency web site.
For best results apply to emerged, young, actively growing weeds that are less than 5 cm tall or across. Thorough coverage of target weeds is essential. GoldWing Herbicide can only be applied once per year. Weed control may be reduced if the plants are beyond the recommended application growth stage, and during stress conditions, e.g. drought, heat or cold stress, or in heavy infestations where overlapping leaves prevent spray contact. In these situations, use up to 660 mL/ha.
GoldWing Herbicide ALONE
Apply 330 – 660 mL of GoldWing Herbicide per hectare prior to wheat, barley, oats, rye, buckwheat, pearl millet, proso millet, triticale, canary seed, peas and corn
1. Select a spray volume and nozzle type that will ensure thorough coverage and uniform spray pattern. Use a minimum of 50 – 100 L spray volume per hectare.
2. Fill the spray tank 1/3 full with fresh water and start agitation.
3. If tankmixing with glyphosate, add the required amount of glyphosate to the tank first, agitate well. Always consult the label of the tank mix partner(s) for minimum spray volume requirements and apply the tank mixture using a water volume recommended for all products.
4. Add the required amount of GoldWing Herbicide to the tank, agitate well.
5. Continue to fill tank and maintain agitation for at least 5 minutes to ensure thorough mixing.
6. Use the spray preparation of GoldWing Herbicide within 24 hours. Product degradation may occur under alkaline conditions (pH >7.5). If spray solution is left standing without agitation, thoroughly agitate before resuming the spraying operation.
GoldWing Herbicide can be applied pre-seeding or post-seeding prior to crop emergence in the crops from the crop groups listed below as well as canary seed (Phalaris canariensis). Crops not listed can be planted one month after GoldWing Herbicide application.
Crop Group 6: Legume Vegetable
Crop Group 15: Cereal Grains
Barley, buckwheat, corn (sweet and field), pearl millet, proso millet, oats, popcorn, rye (spring and winter), triticale and wheat (spring, durum, winter)
Apply the spray mixture uniformly with properly calibrated ground equipment only. Ensure thorough coverage and a uniform spray pattern. Flat fan nozzles are recommended (minimum 50 – 100 L spray volume per hectare). Use 50 mesh filter screens or larger (metal or nylon). A spray pressure of 210 – 275 kPa is recommended. Apply uniformly.
