A non-residual herbicide for the control of annual and perennial broad-leaved and grassy weeds.

Contains 360 g/l glyphosate present as 41.8% w/w of the isopropylamine salt.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Timing treatments

IT IS IMPORTANT WHEN TREATING PERENNIAL WEEDS THAT THERE IS FULL EMERGENCE OF HEALTHY GREEN FOLIAGE AND ACTIVE GROWTH AT THE TIME OF APPLICATION. The efficacy of this product is increased if the leaf surface for absorption is large. Common couch grass is particularly susceptible at the 4-5 leaf stage, where there is about 10-15cm of new growth, when tillering and new rhizome growth is starting. Most perennial weeds broad-leaved weeds are particularly susceptible to treatment when they are actively growing and shortly before flowering. Annual weeds should be growing actively at the time of treatment. Grasses should have at least 5 cm of growth. Broadleaved weeds should have at least two sizeable true leaves. Under conditions of drought, flooding, frost or high temperatures, disease or insect damage or weeds heavily covered with dust, where plant growth is restricted the efficacy of this product will be reduced. Product Degradation and Following Crops ASTEROID is inactivated on contact with soil, by binding to soil particles. All crops may be planted or sown at specified intervals after treatment with ASTEROID. A slight growth retardation following germination may be seen if seeds are sown by direct drilling amongst decaying treated vegetation, roots, rhizomes or stolons
Product Degradation and Following Crops
ASTEROID is inactivated on contact with soil, by binding to soil particles. All crops may be planted or sown at specified intervals after treatment with ASTEROID. A slight growth retardation following germination may be seen if seeds are sown by direct drilling amongst decaying treated vegetation, roots, rhizomes or stolons.

Associated Farming Practices
Lime, chemical or natural fertilizers or other pesticides should not be applied before treatment or to treated areas for at least 5 days before or after application of ASTEROID.

Weather Conditions
For best results a rainfree period of 6 hours and preferably 24 hours is required after application of this product. Treating weeds which are suffering from drought stress may result in reduced efficacy. ASTEROID should not be applied under windy conditions because spray drift may cause severe injury or destruction of neighbouring crops. The action of ASTEROID will be slower in cooler weather. This product should not be used under frosty conditions while weed growth is reduced by natural senescence.

Tank mixes
ASTEROID should only be mixed with products recommended in this leaflet and should be used according to the directions for use. Do not tank-mix with fertilizers, residual herbicides or other pesticides unless specifically recommended as this may result in reduced weed control.

Compatibility
Do NOT add wetting agents, oils or other pesticides unless recommended on this label
