Combination Herbicide (with Oxadiazon) and Controlled Release Fertiliser for Pre-Emergent Control of Summer Grass, Crab Grass and Winter Grass in Turf. Plus Nutrient Delivery (Feeding) to Turf.
OxStar Herbicide Coated Fertiliser is a member of the N-Phenyl-oxadiazolones (PPO inhibitors) family of herbicides. OxStar Herbicide inhibits protoporphyrinogen oxidase, leading to irreversible cell membrane damage. After application and incorporation into the soil OxStar Herbicide is adsorbed by the soil colloids forming a herbicidal layer through which germinating weeds must pass; they absorb the OxStar Herbicide through the shoot and subsequently die. Therefore the soil should remain undisturbed after treatment.
➢ Effective against major annual grass weeds in turf during summer and winter
➢ Controls weeds by controlling weed seedlings as they come in contact with the herbicide during germination
➢ Reduces future weed set and germination
➢ Reduces the reliance on costly selective post-emergent herbicides
➢ Controls weeds through shoots, not roots – Doesn’t inhibit turf root growth or recovery from damage
➢ Doesn’t prevent roots from pegging down
➢ Controls germinating weeds for up to 10 weeks
➢ Convenient ready to use granular formulation
