Crop Usage


A superior, non-ionic wetting agent designed for fast spreading, uniform distribution and absorption of spray droplets on leaf and stem surfaces.

Directions for Use

Starsil , when applied with pesticides and fertilizers and micronutrients will be effective on alfalfa, corn, cotton, oats. peanuts, rice, sorghum, soybeans, sugarcane, wheat, lawns, turf, greens and tees, and deep feeding trees. For optimum results;

Ground: Use 12 ounces to 64 ounces per 100 gallons of spray/

Aerial: Use 12 ounces to 32 ounces per 100 gallons of spray

General Welter/Spreader: Use 6 ounces to 12 32 ounces per 100 gallons of spray

Note: When applying aerially, follow pesticide label directions including minimum water volume per acre. Do no substitute Starsil for water required by the pesticide label.

Starsil is also recommended for use with non-selective herbicides and other pesticides inducing those used to desiccate or defoliate.

The rate guidelines are for use with pesticides whose labels recommend the use of a nonionic surfactant. For best efficiency, increased or decreased surfactant rates may be required for some pesticides. Follow directions on pesticides label when this occurs. Applications of Starsil through, irrigation injection systems are possible provided that the recommended use rates and dilutions are maintained and local, state and federal guidelines are followed. Before adding Starsil to spray tank mixes or before using wittl a pesticide or fertilizer where a nonionic adjuvant is not specifically recommended but M prohibited by the manufacturer, the user or application advisor must have experience with the combination or must have conducted a phtotoxicity trial of their own.

For most efficient water penetration of hard to wet soils and the even distribution of applied moisture follow recommended uses:

  • Lawns & Turf --- .05% - .125% v/v concentration
  • Greens & Tees --- .05% - .125% v/v concentration
  • Deep Feeding Trees --- .10% - .20% v/v concentration

Mixing: Splay mixing and application equipment must be cleaned according to deaning directions on p1ior pesticide label before application. To minimize and help prevent foaming, fill tank 2/3 to 3/4 full of water. Add pesticides and/or fertilizers as directed by label or in the following sequence:

1) Micronutrients and fertilizers

2) Dry flowables and dispersible granules

3) Flowables

4) Water­-soluble pesticides

5) Emulsifiable concentrates.

While agitating, add Starsil and mix for 1 to 2 minutes with lower than normal agitation. Continue filling tank maintaining minimal agitation. For most effective results, apply wittlin 36 hours after mixing.

Aquatic Application: Apply al rate recommended as described by pesticide label
