Broadway Star meets perfect match

Lurmark F110 Nozzle

According to manufacturer Dow AgroSciences, their new graminicide Broadway Star is proving to be a huge hit!

The manufacturers claim that its as good as Axial, Topik and Atlantis on wild oats, better than the latter and the specific brome killers on bromes, and generally speaking better than Axial on ryegrass. And then you can add a much wider range of broadleaved weeds to its spectrum than any of those products, plus no following crop or cultivation restrictions – an issue for some Atlantis users, in particular.

Application advice:

Broadway Star is a contact herbicide that needs active weed growth for best results, according to Stuart Jackson, Dow’s technical specialist says.

Like grassweed sulfonylureas its performance is affected by cold weather slowing or stopping weed growth, so he recommends it is only applied when there are clear signs of active growth, such as a new leaf emerging or, more crudely, when the lawn needs cutting. Timing trials have also suggested best results from when soil temperatures are 8C or above at a 10cm depth.

It is also crucial for spray quality to be fine, or on the finer side of the medium spectrum. “At the moment we are recommending a conventional flat-fan nozzle at 130-150 litres/ha water volume to provide the best combination of droplet size and coverage,” says Mr Jackson.
