FIESTAR contains the active ingredient Glufosinate ammonium. Glufosinate Ammonium features a unique mode of action and is a non-selective herbicide.
The primary mode of action of Glufosinate-ammonium is the inhibition of the enzyme glutamine synthetase. This enzyme catalyzes the synthesis of glutamine from glutamate and ammonia and plays a central role in plant nitrogen metabolism.
The mode of action – unique among broad-spectrum herbicides – is key to mitigate developing resistance to other herbicides when used as part of an Integrated Weed Management (IWM) program.
Glufosinate-ammonium is a contact herbicide with limited translocation. The herbicide is rapidly degraded in soil, avoiding that it enteres ground water supplies.
A safe solution for broad spectrum weed control in vines, orchards and many
Wide spectrum activity on numerous competing
weeds and works fast.

The Fiestar 200 formulation contains a very high loading of inbuilt wetter suitable for most applications. Additional surfactant may be beneficial for hard to kill weeds at high water volumes.
|ACTIVE CONSTITUENT||200 g/L Glufosinate-Ammonium|
|MODE OF ACTION GROUPING||N|
|SIMILAR PRODUCT||Basta® Non-Selective Herbicide|
|RAINFASTNESS (HRS)||DO NOT apply when rain is expected within 6 hours.|
|WEED CONTROLLED||Annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and grasses. Does not provide residual weed control.|
|ADJUVANTS||The addition of a wetting agent or other adjuvant is generally not considered necessary, with the exception of the required addition of an adjuvant to assist in control of Pinus spp. However, benefit has been obtained using a wetting agent on hard-to-wet weeds when using water rates in excess of 500 L/ha. The rate is 25 mL/100 L of a 1000 g/L non-ionic wetting agent, or equivalent.|
|COMPATIBILITY||Compatible with most residual herbicides e.g. Simazine, Diuron, oxyfluorfen (OX 240), norfluazuron (Solicam®) and oryzalin (Surflan®), and with glyphosate and metsulfuron-methyl.|
|WEATHER CONDITIONS||Best results are achieved when applied under warm humid conditions.|
