Stadium Turf Selective Herbicide
- Clopyralid @ 20g/L
- Diflufenican @ 15g/L
- MCPA @ 300g/L
Stadium Turf Selective Herbicide is registered for the control of a wide range of dicot (broadleaf) weeds in a broad range of recreational turf situations.
A key feature of Stadium Turf Selective Herbicide is low odour and schedule 5 characteristics, making it easy to use and safer for use in public environments. Stadium is one of the broadest spectrum broadleaf weed herbicides available on the market, registered to control 7 key weeds. Stadium Turf Selective Herbicide contains a dual mode of action for improved performance and resistance management.
What are some of the established turfgrass varieties where Stadium Turf Selective Herbicide can be used;
- Common Couch
- Qld Blue Couch*
*Note: Transient discolouration may occur on Kikuyu, Carpetgrass and Qld Blue Couch. Varietal differences in certain buffalo grasses (eg. ST85) may produce more pronounced effects and it is recommended that small areas be tested for turf safety before large scale applications occur.

Broadleaf weeds including ;
- White Clover (Trifolium repens)
- Plantain (Plantago lanceolata)
- Capeweed (Arctotheca calendula)
- Cat’s Ear (Hypchoeris radicata)
- Bindii (Bindii Eye, Jo-Jo, Onehunga) (Soliva sessils)
- Cudweed (Gnaphalium spp.)
- Creep Oxalis (Oxalis corniculata)
Stadium Turf Selective Herbicide contains a dual mode of action (Groups F & I) for improved performance and resistance management.
MCPA is a foliar absorbed systemic herbicide that belongs to the Group I mode of action group. They mimic natural growth hormones and upset the natural hormone balance in susceptible weed species. Growth hormones regulate cell elongation, protein synthesis, and cell division. By upsetting the normal hormone balance, auxin mimic herbicides cause unregulated plant growth and eventual plant death.
Similarly, Clopyralid is a synthetic plant growth hormone and acts as an auxin mimic within the plant. It disrupts plant growth by binding to molecules that are normally used as receptors for natural growth hormones. Because clopyralid is more persistent in plant tissue than auxins, the binding causes abnormal growth leading to plant death within 2 – 4 weeks.
Diflufenican is a selective contact and short term residual herbicide, absorbed principally by the shoots of germinating seedlings, with limited translocation occurring thereafter. The mode of action of diflufenican is a bleaching action, due to the inhibition of carotenoid biosynthesis, thereby preventing photosynthesis and leading to plant death.
Stadium Herbicide is applied at a rate of 5 L/ha (50 mL/100 m2).
