Product information

Broadway® Star is the leading product for ryegrass, brome, oats and broad-leaved weeds.

Why use Broadway Star in winter wheat this spring?

Broadway Star delivers an outstanding performance in winter wheat against yield robbing grassweeds including wild oats, ryegrasses and bromes PLUS the bonus of controlling an extensive range of broad-leaved weeds.

  • Cost-effective and efficacious control of bromes, ryegrass and wild oats
  • Wide range of broad-leaved weeds controlled including poppy, cleavers, brassica weeds, cranesbill, groundsel, speedwells, pansy and many more
  • Wide range of tank mix compatibilities
  • Approved and safe on all varieties of winter wheat
  • No carry-over concerns – short half-life = rotational and cultivation flexibility

Key considerations:

  • Active growth
  • Size of (grass) weeds
  • Mix with a residual?
    • less benefit beyond end of February
  • Attention to detail when spraying
  • Avoid stressed crops
