APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS
RATE
150 lb/acre (3.5 lbs/1,000 ft)

PRE-EMERGENCE
Apply BroadStar™ granules to clean, weed-free soil, mulch, or gravel surfaces. Moisture following the application is necessary to activate the herbicide.

RESIDUAL CONTROL
3 or more months, depending on time of year the application is made, media, soil temperature, and amount of irrigation and/or rainfall. Fall applications of BroadStar to bareground or mulch have routinely displayed weed control for 8 months or more.

See label for complete application rates and recommendations.

PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
DO NOT apply by air.
DO NOT apply to moist or wet foliage.
DO NOT apply when winds are gusty or above 10 mph.
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 inches in diameter.
DO NOT apply to recently transplanted liners with root balls that are less than 4 inches 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.
DO NOT graze or feed livestock forage cut from treated areas.
