Its time for Granstar

Published on 12/10/2016

Part of this is to ensure that new brassica, grass and legume varieties are given their very best opportunity to establish well, Du-
Pont says.
“Poor establishment is often associated with incomplete removal of the existing sward which leads to poor seedling survival and high plant mortality during establishment.”
While glyphosate will control grasses and some broadleaf weeds, it is very important to remove the old clovers and hard to control broadleaf weeds including shepherd’s purse, thistles, ragwort, yarrow and dandelions, among others.”
By combining DuPont Granstar with their glyphosate and organo silicone (Input penetrant), farmers can help to achieve this.
Granstar herbicide is primarily absorbed through plant foliage and inhibits cell division within the plant which is why active growing leaf area is present at spraying; rank pasture or vegetation should be grazed and freshened before application.
The simple step of adding Granstar herbicide to their mix gives farmers important benefits, DuPont says.
These include improved establishment and subsequent yield of following brassica or pasture crops as well as being able to graze and/or cultivate after 3 days, and dril after 14 days.
It also eliminates competitive weeds to establish a quality crop and promote moisture conservation.
Granstar is rainfast within one hour when used with Input penetrant, and can be used in hormone sensitive areas.
