About this Product

Specifically designed for glyphosate tolerant soybeans, Flexstar™ GT herbicide allows users to move beyond glyphosate alone. Flexstar GT combines the contact and residual power that controls Group 2-resistant weeds and reduces the probability of weed shifts and glyphosate resistance.

Product Benefits

  • Enhanced control of glyphosate tolerant weeds
  • Residual control of target weeds
  • Reduces weed seed bank
  • Two modes of action reduce the potential of glyphosate resistant broadleaf weeds

Packaging

Each case contains 2 x 10L jugs

Uses

For use on:

  • glyphosate tolerant  soybeans

For management of:

Refer to the label for a complete list of weeds controlled.

Ground

Application Information

  • Glyphosate tolerant soybeans are tolerant to Flexstar GT herbicide application made to plants in the 1 to 2 trifoliate leaf stage.
  • Apply Flexstar GT herbicide when weeds are small and actively growing.
  • Application should be made when the main flush of weeds is complete and the majority of the weeds are at the cotyledon to 3 or 4 true leaf stage.
  • Under stress conditions and for larger weeds, addition of Turbocharge is required at 0.25% v/v of spray solution.
  • Apply using ground equipment only.

Refer to the label for complete details on weed staging and application timing.

Mixing Order

WALES Symbol: S
