Starane Hi-Load HL has been granted a new EAMU for BLW control in Millet

"With the loss of Bromoxynil another BLW herbicide was needed" says Premium Crops Company Agronomist, Hannah Foxall,"Having fluroxypyr as a Post-Emergence option will enhance our control of; cleavers, knotgrass, black nightshade, fumitory, chickweed and black bindweed in the millet crop"

As with all EAMUs any restrictions guidance stated on the products labels must be adhered to and the approval document can be found by clicking HERE 


"Formal approvals such as this by the HSE's Chemicals Regulation Division, is the culmination of a significant amount of work" says Premium Crops MD, Andrew Probert, "This successful application for Starane HI-Load is just a small part of our ongoing commitment to our growers and speciality crops in general."

Premium Crops invest significantly in tests and trials across a wide range of minor crop species to ensure that our growers have an effective armoury of varieties and crop inputs along with the best advice on how to use them.


Footnote: Don’t forget if there are any product on farm containing Bromoxynil these must be used up by the 17th September 2021. 

NEW Avadex factor EAMU for Canary Seed

NEW Avadex factor EAMU for Canary Seed

‘Growers will welcome the addition of Avadex Factor to the limited herbicide armoury available for weed control in Canary Seed’, says Barrie Hunt, Technical Manager of Gowan Crop Protection Ltd.

‘Premium Crops have successfully gained an EAMU for the use of Avadex Factor on Canary Seed (grown for wild bird seed production).  It joins Avadex Excel 15G and confirms the position of tri-allate as the only in-crop annual grass killing herbicide option available. As a liquid, Avadex Factor provides flexibility for those growers not having a granular applicator.’

Avadex Factor should be applied at 3.6 l/ha pre-emergence of the crop. Full Canary Seed agronomy details are available from Premium Crops.

This addition increases the importance of Avadex Factor for spring weed control as it can now be used on Spring Barley, Spring Linseed and Canary Grass.
