Your second chance

20 March 1998

Your second chance

to win tickets for the World Cup

This is week two of the

Cyanamid/farmers weekly

World Cup competition,

your chance to win one

of 15 pairs of tickets

(plus travel) to England

or Scotlands first round

World Cup games in

France in June. As last

week, look through the

text, answer the three

questions and keep the

page in a safe place.

Do the same for the next

four weeks (Mar 27,

Apr 3, 10 and 17), Then

look out for the coupon

in the Apr 24 issue

WITH only limited numbers of World Cup tickets available to each country and black market prices already hitting the £1800 mark, theres no doubt that a lot of people whod like to see England or Scotland play in the first round will be disappointed.

But you could be one of the lucky few. Heres your chance to win one of 15 pairs of tickets to England or Scotlands first round games in France in June thanks to Cyanamid Agriculture, one of the World Cups official sponsors. The prize includes travel, but not accommodation.

As last week, just read the text on this page and answer the three questions. Keep the page in a safe place – dont send anything to us yet. Then look out for three more questions in each of the farmers weekly issues of Mar 27, Apr 3, 10 and 17. All 18 questions will be repeated in the coupon in the Apr 24 issue. Fill that in and send it to us – its that simple.


Stomp, a long-lasting, powerful residual herbicide, is one of Cyanamids best-known products. It provides high levels of control of a wide range of grass and broad-leaved weeds.

Stomp can be used at a wide range of dose rates and with a variety of tank-mix partners, allowing cost-effective weed control in a range of different field situations. Even at lower rates, Stomp also controls meadowgrass and more than 30 broad-leaved weeds. More demanding weeds like blackgrass and wild oats are effectively controlled at higher rates.


Ecomatic is a sealed transfer system that speeds up spraying by delivering 25 litres of product in less than 2min. It protects the operator and environment by eliminating direct contact with the chemical and does away with the need to rinse and dispose of empty drums and cases. It also helps farmers, spray operators and the industry meet new waste packaging regulations that aim to recover more than half of the EUs total packaging waste by 2001.

The operator doesnt have to use all 25 litres in one go either; the non-returnable valve reseals automatically. Once the kegs are empty, they are collected on behalf of Cyanamid by the farmers usual distributor and returned to the company for refilling.

Cyanamid products currently available in the Ecomatic keg are Stomp, Encore, Trump, Meteor, Bullet and Arelon. These cost no more a litre than the conventionally-packaged equivalents – the cost of the keg is not picked up by the farmer.

Italy and England clash in Englands qualifying match for the World Cup last October. You could win one of

15 pairs of tickets

to see England or

Scotlands first round

matches in

France in June.

Cyanamids Ecomatic closed transfer system means an end to rinsing and disposing of empty drums and cases.
