Active materials

A residual herbicide for the pre-emergence control of a range of annual grasses and broad leaved weeds in forage and grain maize.
A water dispersible granule formulation containing 100 g/kg isoxaflutole and 480 g/kg flufenacet.

DO NOT use Cadou Star on soils with both a percentage of sand above 70% and containing less than 2% organic matter.
DO NOT use Cadou Star on maize crops intended for seed production as safety to seed crops has not been established.
DO NOT treat in windy conditions in order to avoid any risk of drift over other crops. Crops of beet and sunflowers are particularly sensitive to this risk.

Strains of some annual grasses (e.g. black-grass, wild oats and Italian ryegrass) have developed resistance to herbicides which may lead to poor control. A strategy for preventing and managing such resistance should be adopted.

Broad-leaved weeds: Black nightshade, Common amaranth, Common chickweed, Common ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia),Fat hen, Pale persicaria.
Rate: 0.85kg/ha
Pre-emergence susceptibility: susceptible.

Broad- leaved weeds: Annual mercury, Black bindweed, Knotgrass, Redshank, Wild radish / runch.
Rate: 0.85kg/ha
Pre-emergence susceptibility: Moderately Susceptible

Grass weeds: Barnyardgrass (Echinochloa crus-galli), Bristle-grasses (Setaria species), Hairy Finger-grass (Digitaria sanguinalis).
Rate: 085kg/ha
Pre-emergence susceptibility: susceptible.

Grass weeds: Common Millet (Panicum miliaceum) Moderately Susceptible
Rate: 0.85kg/ha
Pre-emergence susceptibility: Moderately susceptible.

Critical comments: Maximum number of applications 1 per crop.

Apply Cadou Star pre-emergence of the maize crop. It is recommended that the product is applied before the maize seeds have germinated. Applications should generally be made within 4 days of sowing.
Use at a maximum rate of 0.85 kg of product per hectare.
Apply via a horizontal boom sprayer. Apply in 200 to 300 litres of water per hectare as a MEDIUM spray. Lower water volumes of 100 to 200 litres water per hectare may also be used, however these volumes have not been supported by effectiveness or crop safety data. Good even spray coverage of the soil is essential.
Company Advisory Information: Good even spray coverage of the soil is most likely to be achieved by use of higher spray volumes (around 200 L/ha) rather than reduced spray volumes.
Ensure that spray swaths do not overlap. To prevent damage, care must be taken to avoid drift onto neighbouring crops.
Only one application of Cadou Star should be made to the crop.
Safety to crops grown for seed has not been established.
Where Cadou Star is used for maize crops grown under plastic a tank-mix with pendimethalin will be necessary to extend the spectrum of broad leaved weeds controlled.

After applying Cadou Star, the following crops may be grown:
wheat, rye, triticale, sugar beet, field beans, peas, soya, sorghum and sunflowers after surface cultivation or ploughing, oats and barley after ploughing. In the event of failure of a maize crop treated with Cadou Star replacement crops possible are: maize, sweet corn, and potatoes after surface cultivation or ploughing.

Add recommended quantity of Cadou Star to the spray tank half-filled with the required quantity of clean water. Add the remainder of the water with the sprayer agitation system in operation. Maintain agitation during mixing and loading and until spraying is complete. Do not leave the sprayer standing with chemical in it. Wash out the sprayer thoroughly after use using a minimum of two rinses.
