Ronstar G is for commerical applicators only.
NOT FOR USE ON RESIDENTIAL LAWNS & TURF.
Ronstar G is a pre-emergent herbicide that controls a variety of annual broadleaf and annual grass weeds. Offering a conducive environment for sprigging, Ronstar controls weeds through their shoots rather than their roots, so it won't harm turfgrass roots in the process. In fact, Ronstar can be used for long residual pre-emergent weed control even in areas that may need to be sprigged or where turfgrass roots are already weakened due to pest, mechanical or other damage.
|Active Ingredient:||Oxadiazon 2%|
|Target pests:||Crabgrass, Goosegrass, Field Sandbur, Annual Sedge, Annual Bluegrass, Virginia Buttonweed, Pigweed, Florida Pusley, Oxalis, Stinging Nettle, Carpetgrass. (See label for complete list)|
|For use in:||Ronstar may be used on established perennial turf such as bluegrass, bertgrass, bermudagrass, buffalograss, perennial ryegrass, St. Augustine grass, seashore paspalum, fall fescue, and zoysiagrass, as well as in commercial nurseries and commercial landscapes.|
|Application:||* See label for complete application instructions|
|NOT FOR SALE TO:||NY, HI, NJ, AK, PR, MA|
Q: What's a DNA? And what makes Ronstar's mode of action unique?
A: Dinitroaniline (DNA) herbicides control weeds by halting root growth. But these products don't distinguish between weed roots and turf/ornamental roots, so they can inhibit turfgrass and ornamentals in treated areas. Another problem with these products has been herbicide resistance by goosegrass. Ronstar, on the other hand, contains the active ingredient oxadiazon, and is not in the DNA chemical class. Ronstar controls weeds through the shoots, not the roots. It does not harm turf and ornamental roots and is effective against DNA-resistant goosegrass.
Q: Is Ronstar effective on goosegrass and crabgrass?
A: Yes. However, it must be applied prior to emergence. Ronstar's performance is not significantly affected by temperature, and it will not lose its effectiveness if it's applied early. In fact, the opposite is true—an early application ensures excellent crabgrass and goosegrass control.
Q: Does Ronstar control Poa annua (annual bluegrass)?
A: Yes. Just one application of Ronstar provides control that's equal to or better than other products registered for use on Poa annua.
Q: What's the best way to ensure effectiveness after Ronstar is applied?
A: Thoroughly water the treated areas soon after it's applied. Water only the soil and don't incorporate the chemical by raking; Ronstar works best when the soil surface is not disturbed.

April 14, 2011Jennifer asked:
QIs Ronstar G toxic to pets and children?
If so, how long should the treated area be off limits? If the product was to enter a water source such as a pond, is it toxic to the fish?
ARonstar must only be used by commercial applicators and cannot be used on residential turfgrass. Applicators can apply Ronstar to landscape beds in residential areas. After the product has been applied, people and pets must wait until after the product has been watered in before they return to the treated areas. Ronstar is toxic to fish and other aquatic animals and should not be used in areas where runoff or direct application could enter the water. For more information on Ronstar please read the Ronstar Product Label.

January 27, 2012Wes from Fred., Va asked:
QWhen should Ronstar G be applied in Virginia in the spring (what month)?
AThe application of Ronstar G will completely depend on the type of weeds you are trying to prevent and the type of grass you are applying the product on and of course your location. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff. He/she will be able to tell you the best time for the application as he/she will know when the weeds germinate in your region.
