S-METOLASTAR® is a multi-crop herbicide approved for use on, among others, corn, sunflower, sorghum, soybeans, beets and beans.
The active ingredient, S-metolachlor, is particularly effective in controlling a broad spectrum of annual grasses, as well as certain broadleaf weeds such as geraniums. Mainly used pre-emergence, S-METOLASTAR® is also registered for post-emergence applications (4-5 corn leaves).
The maximum recommended dose of S-metolachlor is 1,000 g/ha/year, i.e. 1.04 l/ha/year, on all types of maize (grain corn, forage maize, sweet corn, seed production), and on sunflower, millet, moha, soya and sorghum.
