  • Avoid spraying drift onto other crops, grazing, rivers, dams and areas not under treatment
  • TRIPLE RINSE empty containers in the following manner: Invert the empty container over the spray or mixing tank and allow to drain for at least 30 seconds, after the slow has slowed down to a drip. Thereafter, rinse the container three times with a volume of water, equal to a minimum of 10%, of that of the container. Add the rinsings to the contents of the spray tank, before destroying the container in the prescribed manner.

Mixing instructions

  • Three-quarters fill the spray tank with clean water, Shake the Stellar Star container well. Measure the required volume of Stellar Star and pre-mix this with at least 10 litres of water, before adding to the spray tank. similarly, pre-mix other products individually and add these diluted mixtures to the spray tank. Fill the spray tank with water to the required level while maintaining agitation, to ensure thorough mixing of the spray mixture., before spraying commences. Maintain agitation while spraying. The prepared spray mixture must not be left in the spray tank, for any length of time.

Use Restrictions

Do not apply Stellar Star in the following situations:

  • On soils with a compaction layer, on lands where waterlogging often occurs, or soils with a nutrient deficiency
  • On inbred parent plants of maize hybrids, or experimental or newly released cultivars without first consulting the advice of the distributor or manufacturer
  • Do not apply after the maize has reached a height of 800mm

Ground Application:

  • Stellar Star can be applied as an overall application using in 200-300 litres of water/ hectare, or as a band, an application using the corresponding amount of water per hectare
  • Any medium or high volume tractor-mounted sprayer can be used, as long as it is fitted with an effective tank agitation system. Ensure that the sprayer can be properly calibrated and that the spray boom is fitted with suitable spray nozzles (hollow-cone) to facilitate an even distribution of the herbicide on the weeds
  • Stellar Star should be applied during favourable growing conditions for optimum crop tolerance and weed control. Apply Stellar Star as a post-emergent treatment to maize when weeds are actively growing.
  • Avoid disturbing treated areas for at least seven days following an application of Stellar Star to allow optimum herbicide uptake, translocation and weed control
