Combination Herbicide and Controlled Release Fertiliser for Pre-Emergent Control of Crab Grass, Creeping Oxalis, Summer Grass and Winter Grass in Turf. Plus Nutrient Delivery (Feeding) to Turf.
OxStar Herbicide Coated Fertiliser is a pre-emergent herbicide as a convenient ready to use formulation for the control of certain annual grass & broadleaf weeds in turf plus for fertilisation of turf.
OXSTAR can be used as an effective tool to help Turf Managers control annual weeds, especially when warm season grasses require surface recovery (runners needing to peg down and spread). Whilst also controlling germinating Creeping Oxalis, one of the most competitive and invasive weed species in turf management.
OXSTAR selectivity is primarily through soil profile placement. Small-seeded plants take up greater amounts of the herbicide as they germinate in the soil profile zone of herbicide placement.
Application should be prior to germination of the target weeds.
