STRADA GR is a systemic herbicide formulated as a granule suitable for selective post emergence weed control. When applied according to label directions it is effective in the control of several annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and sedges.
To achieve the best control, it is recommended that STRADA GR be applied to young, actively growing weeds between 1-2 leaves. STRADA GR should be applied as a direct dry application using ground or air equipment to flooded rice.
Efficacy may depend on the following parameters:
x Weed size at application
x Growing and environmental conditions (e.g. relative humidity and temperature) prior to and following treatment
x Soil pH, texture and organic matter content
x Water management
STRADA GR contains the active ingredient orthosulfamuron, a sulfonylurea herbicide. The mode of action (MOA) for STRADA GR inhibits the plant enzyme acetolactate synthase (ALS), which is also known as acetohydroxy acid synthase (AHAS). Inhibition of this enzyme blocks branched-chain amino acid biosynthesis of valine, leucine and isoleucine which leads to plant death.
STRADA GR is particularly efficient by foliar uptake. Once in the target weed, it is translocated by xylem and phloem. Soon after STRADA GR is applied, growth of susceptible weeds is inhibited and the plants are no longer competitive with rice. Typically, weed leaves turn yellow, then reddish and within 10 to 20 days, depending on weed size, species and growing conditions, the stem and roots die. Treated target weeds may stay green, but are stunted and not competitive with the crop.
x Do not apply after ½ inch internode elongation
x Do not enter treated fields until 12 hours after application (REI = 12 hours)
x For detailed instructions regarding water management before and after application, refer to the water management section of this label
x Do not apply where runoff or irrigation water may flow directly onto agricultural lands other than rice fields
x Do not apply STRADA GR directly or indirectly to crops other than rice
x Do not make more than 1 application or apply more than 13.3 pounds of STRADA GR per acre per year (equivalent to 0.067 lb ai/a)
x Do not apply STRADA CA to the same field in the same use or year that an application of STRADA GR has been applied.
x Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
