Spring wheat weed control boosted by new approval

Spring wheat growers have a new weed killer at their disposal this season after Dow AgroSciences secured approval for Broadway Star to be used in the crop.

A co-formulation of the company’s long-standing actives pyroxsulam and florasulam, the product has been a cornerstone of spray programmes in winter cereals. Now spring growers have a new option in the fight against yield-robbing broad-leaved weeds such as poppy, cleavers, brassica weeds, cranesbill, groundsel, speedwells and pansy. Importantly, the product also delivers activity on spring germinating wild oats.
