Long Lasting Weed Control.



BroadStar™ is a low odor and dust-free granular pre-emergence herbicide that controls a broad spectrum of annual broadleaf and grassy weeds such as spurge, bittercress, oxalis, common groundsel and crabgrass. Plus, BroadStar keeps weeds away for months with long-lasting residual activity.


STAY WEED FREE
  • Low odor, dust-free granular formulation
  • Broad-spectrum, pre-emergence control of tough/resistant weeds
  • 3 or more months of residual control
  • Unique mode of action assists in controlling weeds that have developedresistance to other herbicides

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS
Remove any existing weeds before applying BroadStar™ Herbicide.

Apply to dry foliage only. Irrigate plants within 1 hour after application with 1/2 to 3/4” of water to activate the herbicide and remove any remaining herbicide granules. If herbicide granules are allowed to remain on plant foliage for an extended period, herbicide residues may be released and cause leaf spotting on some sensitive ornamental species, especially on new flush.

BroadStar Herbicide may be applied to the soil surface of individual containers, but only at a rate that is equivalent to the amount of product that would land on the media surface of an individual container if broadcast at 150 lbs per acre.


PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
DO NOT apply to moist or wet foliage.
DO NOT apply to plants that are under moisture stress or stress from insects, diseases, animals, winter injury, planting shock, or any other stresses.
Use caution when applying to plants that are producing a new flush of growth because herbicide may injure tender, newly formed leaves if granules remain in contact with leaf surfaces.
DO NOT apply to plants grown from seed until at least one year after seed germination, unless tolerance is first confirmed on a small number of plants.
DO NOT apply to plants whose leaves channel the herbicide granules to the leaf base.
DO NOT apply to herbaceous bedding plants or areas where bedding plants will be planted or transplanted within 3 months following application.
DO NOT apply to plants while in propagation.
DO NOT apply to liners that are in pots less than 4” in diameter.
DO NOT apply to recently transplanted liners with root balls that are less than 4” in diameter until liners have been actively growing for at least 6 weeks after transplanting.
DO NOT apply to bearing fruit and nut trees such as citrus, apples, pears, peaches, etc. Fruit and nut trees are defined as plants that will bear fruit within 1 year of the application.
DO NOT incorporate product into soil or potting media.
DO NOT apply more than 150 lbs per acre in a single application or more than 300 lbs per acre in a single year.
DO NOT treat the same plants more than one time every 8 weeks or more than 2 times per year.
DO NOT apply in an enclosed greenhouse structure.
