Wheat ears in flower

Broadway Star®

Herbicide

Broadway® Star delivers an outstanding performance in winter wheat against yield robbing grassweeds including wild oats, ryegrasses and bromes PLUS the bonus of controlling an extensive range of broad-leaved weeds.

 

How to make the most of Broadway Star
1. Leading product for Ryegrass, Brome, Oats and Broad-leaved weeds

2. Use as part of a programme

3. Use with a residual partner

4. Apply to a small target weed (optimally 1-3 leaf)

5. Apply to active growth (2-3 days either side of application)

6. Soil temperature ideally 8°C (minimum of 6°C)

7. Ensure optimal application techniques are followed:

        • Pre tillereing: 130-150 L/ha, FINE-MEDIUM spray quality, CFF, VPFF, Defy nozzles

        • Tillering: 150 L/ha, MEDIUM spray quality, CFF, VPFF, twin fluid nozzles

 

Key considerations:

   Active growth

   Size of (grass) weeds

   Mix with a residual

   Attention to detail when spraying

   Avoid stressed crops
