DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. All instructions within this section must be read carefully in order to obtain safe and successful use of this product

NOTES
Keep livestock out of treated areas for at least 3 days and until poisonous weeds such as ragwort have died and become unpalatable.
For best results apply STARANE 2 when weeds are actively growing. In newly-sown crops, seedling and small weeds are more susceptible to STARANE 2 and will respond quicker when treated at this stage. Vigorous crop competition enhances control of the more resistant weeds and prevents weeds which germinate after application from becoming a problem in the crop.
Crops undersown with grass may be sprayed provided the grasses are tillering.
Do not apply to crops undersown with clover or other legume-containing mixtures.
STARANE 2 will only produce optimum results when the weeds are actively growing and the crop competitive. This is particularly important with cleavers, especially where HBNs are not included in the tank mix (e.g. tank mixes with Ally SX). STARANE 2 is of low volatility and is therefore not subject to vapour drift.
Do not spray in windy weather and avoid drift onto non-target crops/areas.
Do not treat crops under stress. Stress can be caused by many factors including frost, drought, waterlogging, trace element deficiency, disease and pest attack etc.
Do not spray if night temperatures are low or if frost is imminent.
STARANE 2 used alone is rainfast one hour after application.
Do not roll or harrow 7 days before or after treatment.
Wash equipment thoroughly with water and detergent immediately after use.
Traces of STARANE 2 can cause harm to susceptible crops sprayed later

MIXING
Add the appropriate amount of STARANE 2 to clean water in a half-filled sprayer tank, mix thoroughly and add the remainder of the water. The spray mix must be used immediately and agitated continuously during mixing and until application is complete.

VOLUME
Using standard nozzles the recommended spray volume is 150 to 400 litres of water per hectare. The lowest water volume should only be used in very open crops on small weeds. On later applications where the crop is dense, the spray volume should be increased to 400 litres water per hectare. The minimum recommended pressure is 2 to 3 bars.

SPRAY QUALITY
Apply STARANE 2 as a MEDIUM spray as defined by the BCPC system.

CEREALS
SPRING APPLICATION TO WINTER CEREALS
Winter wheat, winter barley, winter oats, winter rye, durum wheat and triticale

Two-way tank mixes with other broad-leaved weedkillers
STARANE 2 is compatible with Dow Shield or Ally SX. The addition of the recommended rate of Dow Shield will control mayweeds and corn marigold up to 50 mm. The addition of Ally SX to STARANE 2 will broaden the weed spectrum. Refer to the Ally SX label for weed susceptibilities, timing of application etc for these mixes.
Where Ally SX is being used in tank mix with STARANE 2 it is important to spray in good growing conditions when the weeds are actively growing, particularly for control of cleavers.

CROPS AND TIMING
Winter wheat and winter barley
STARANE 2 alone can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop up to and including the boot swollen stage (Zadoks 12-45 inclusive).
STARANE 2 tank mixed with HBNs~ can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop but before the second node detectable stage (Zadoks 12-31 inclusive).

Winter oats, winter rye, durum wheat and triticale
STARANE 2 can be used on winter oats, winter rye, durum wheat and triticale from the two leaf stage of the crop but before the second node detectable stage (Zadoks 12-31 inclusive). The timing of application of STARANE 2 mixes depends on the tank mix partner but mixes should not be applied after the first node detectable stage (Zadoks 31). At the present time there is no recommendation to use STARANE 2 on triticale in tank mix with any other herbicide.

SPRING APPLICATION TO SPRING CEREALS
Spring wheat, spring barley and spring oats

Two-way mixes with other broad-leaved weedkillers
STARANE 2 is compatible in two-way mix with Dow Shield, Ally SX, and approved salt formulations of MCPA. The addition of 0.35 litre/ha Dow Shield to STARANE 2 will control mayweeds and corn marigold up to 50 mm.
The addition of Ally SX to STARANE 2 will broaden the weed spectrum. Refer to the Ally SX label for weed susceptibilities, timing of applications etc, for this mix. Where Ally SX is being used in tank mix with STARANE 2 it is important to spray in good growing conditions when the weeds are actively growing, particularly for control of cleavers.
The addition of the recommended rate of approved salt formulations of MCPA to STARANE 2 is recommended where weeds such as common poppy, fat-hen and shepherd’s-purse are present.

CROPS AND TIMING
Spring wheat and spring barley
STARANE 2 alone can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop up to and including the flag leaf ligule just visible stage (Zadoks 12-39 inclusive).

Spring oats
STARANE 2 alone can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop but before the second node detectable stage (Zadoks 12-31 inclusive).

Spring wheat, spring barley and spring oats
STARANE 2 in mix with Oxytril CM can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop but before the second node detectable stage (Zadoks 12-31 inclusive).
STARANE 2 in tank mix with approved salt formulations of MCPA can be applied from the 5 true leaf stage but before the first node detectable stage (Zadoks 15-30 inclusive).
STARANE 2 in tank mix with Dow Shield can be applied to spring wheat and spring barley from the two leaf stage of the crop to before the third node detectable stage (Zadoks 12-32 inclusive). Application to spring oats may be made from the two leaf stage of the crop to before the second node detectable stage (Zadoks 12-31 inclusive). CROPS, TIMINGS ETC CAN BE AFFECTED BY THE RATE AND TYPE OF TANK MIX PARTNER USED. ALWAYS REFER TO THE PRODUCT LABEL OF THE TANK MIX PARTNER.

AUTUMN APPLICATION TO WINTER WHEAT AND WINTER BARLEY

STARANE 2 will only produce optimum results when the weeds are actively growing and the crops competitive. This is particularly important with cleavers. Do not spray if frost is imminent.
Autumn applications will not control weeds which germinate after spraying. In most circumstances a follow-up spray will be necessary to obtain season long weed control.

CROPS AND TIMING
Winter wheat and barley only
STARANE 2 alone or in tank mix with recommended HBN~ partners can be applied from the two leaf stage of the crop until the end of February (but not after the first node detectable stage (Zadoks 31)). After the end of February, ‘Spring Application’ recommendations apply.

STARANE 2 PLUS REDUCED RATE OF HBN FOR CLEAVER CONTROL
Rates of Use
Starane 2 herbicide at 0.75 litre/ha can be mixed with 0.25 litre/ha of an approved formulation of HBN (MAPP 14697, 14511). The tank mix of Starane 2 + HBN at the rates above will control cleavers up to 250 mm high or across.

Crops and Timing
Applications can be made to winter wheat, winter barley and winter oats, and spring wheat sown in the autumn or in the spring. Application to winter oats should be delayed until risk of frost is over. Applications should be made in the spring from the two-leaf stage of the crop but before second node detectable stage (Zadoks 12-31 inclusive).

VOLUNTEER POTATO CONTROL - WINTER WHEAT AND WINTER BARLEY ONLY
WARNINGS
These warnings apply only for this high rate recommendation of 2.0 litres/ha of STARANE 2. They do not apply where STARANE 2 is used at the standard rates for annual broad-leaved weed control (0.5 to 1.0 litre/ha).
Avoid overlapping spray bouts.
Straw from cereals treated at these rates and timings with STARANE 2 may contain residues which could damage certain crops. Straw must not be incorporated back into the soil. When straw is disposed of by baling and carting it should be used only for animal bedding. Manure from such animal bedding should be used on or before cereal or grass crops only.
DO NOT PLANT WINTER BEANS or other legumes in the same year as this treatment with STARANE 2.
DO NOT PLANT PEAS or other legumes in the spring following this treatment
DO NOT TANK MIX STARANE 2 WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCT when used as recommended above.

NOTES
STARANE 2 will only affect shoots which have emerged at the time of spraying. STARANE 2 will not give complete control of top growth. However, a good degree of stunting can be expected, which will reduce the competitive threat posed to these crops by this weed. Because volunteer potatoes can emerge over an extended period, sprays applied later in the recommended period will generally give better results. The main factors for obtaining successful results are that there is sufficient actively growing green foliage on the potatoes and that good coverage of this foliage is achieved, for example by use of sufficiently high water volumes. In addition to the control of volunteer potato haulm this use of STARANE 2 will give a useful reduction in the viability of daughter tubers.

WEED SIZE CONTROLLED
Potato shoots from 10 cm up to 40 cm in height.

RATE OF USE AND WATER VOLUME
Apply STARANE 2 at 2.0 litres/ha in 300 to 400 litres water per hectare using standard nozzles.

TIMING
Apply STARANE 2 anytime from the third node detectable stage of crop growth up to and including the flag leaf ligule just visible stage (Zadoks 33 to 39 inclusive).

FORAGE MAIZE
NOTES
Do not apply in tank mix with any other product or if the crop is beyond the recommended growth stage. Avoid boom overlap.

WEEDS CONTROLLED
STARANE 2 will control black nightshade from cotyledons up to 6 true leaves. It will not control black nightshade which has not emerged at the time of application.

RATE OF USE AND WATER VOLUME
Apply STARANE 2 at 1.0 litre/ha in 200-300 litres of water per hectare.

TIMING
Apply when maize is between the 3-6 leaf stage and before the crop is over 20 cm tall. Do not apply once the buttress roots (side roots) have started to develop on the first node.

GRASSLAND
NEWLY SOWN GRASS LEYS
RATE OF USE AND WATER VOLUME
Apply STARANE 2 at 0.75 litre/ha in a spray volume of 200 to 400 litres of water per hectare to give good coverage of the weed. Use the higher volume of water where weeds, especially common chickweed, are large at the time of spraying and where the grass is dense.

TIMING
Application timing is crucial and STARANE 2 should be applied when weeds are actively growing.

Autumn application
Apply STARANE 2 in early autumn when the grasses have at least 3 fully expanded leaves. Best control is achieved if STARANE 2 is applied when the weeds are growing actively.

Spring application
Apply STARANE 2 to newly sown spring leys when grasses have at least 3 fully expanded leaves.

PERMANENT GRASSLAND, ROTATIONAL GRASS
RATE OF USE AND WATER VOLUME
Apply STARANE 2 at 2.0 litres/ha in a spray volume of 300 to 400 litres of water per hectare to give good coverage of the weeds .

TANK MIXES
Where tank mixes are used, and unless directed otherwise, the preferred order of addition of products to the tank is as follows: water dispersible grains wettable powders suspension concentrates (flowables) emulsifiable concentrates solution concentrates
Each product should be added to the half-full sprayer tank and be fully dispersed before the addition of the next product.
STARANE 2 can be tank mixed with a number of other herbicides to broaden the spectrum of weeds controlled. These other herbicides may have crop, timing, varietal and other restrictions that are different to those of STARANE 2. Tank mixes should only be applied within label recommendations of every product in the mix.
STARANE 2 should be applied in tank mix with other products only if any requirements or restrictions on the other product label do not conflict with the requirements or restrictions for STARANE 2. Tank mixes should not be allowed to stand in the tank and agitation should be maintained at all times.
