Product Overview

Nufarm Polaris controls Japanese bamboo and cattails as well as most other tough aquatic, brushy weeds. It can be used in riparian zones, wetlands, estuaries, roadside and utility rights-of-way, wildlife openings,and other non-cropland areas. The long-lasting formula provided by Nufarm Polaris helps to reduce the need for re-treating, and the low usage rate means less product to apply and handle. As with all of Nufarm's products, Polaris offers the quality performance you expect.

    Nufarm Polaris

    By Dave on 01/22/2015

    Verified Purchase

    Excellent nonselective soil applied and postemergent herbicide. When used with Diuron covers a very broad spectrum of weeds and light brush. I would have preferred the 40% solution for more cost effective carry in vehicle, however price was reasonable for this 20% formulation.

    Good easy to use product

    By Tl on 04/06/2016

    Results are determined by the mix rate. using 1.5oz min per gallon has given me predicable results. Does not have an issue with ground leaching like some products, will purchase again.

    Not worth the price

    By Richard on 06/10/2015

    Verified Purchase

    Purchased Polaris herbicide to spray Privet. Instructions say a 1% solution will kill the plant. I raised the concentration to 2% and had very little success. Basically only works on young plants. It killed a lot of grass that was not a target pest. Will have to resort to mechanical means to remove the invasive species. Way too expensive for so few results.

    ADD MSM FOR TOTAL KILL

    By Terry on 08/08/2019

    Am buying Polaris locally, just found it on Do My Own.. There is a inexpensive product called MSM. It is a soluble powder. Comes with its own measuring cup. Add MSM to Polaris. It will kill all woody weeds, even Privet. ALWAYS ADD SOMEHTING LIKE DAWN ULTRA TO ANY SPRAY FOR BETTER COVERAGE. 10 to 12-oz per 100 gals (1/2teaspoon per gal)

Q
Is there any chemical I can spray or anything I can do to counteract the Polaris I sprayed?
A

The only way to reduce the effects of an herbicide such as Nufarm Polaris Herbicide would be use an activated charcoal immediately after spraying (within hours). If you have sprayed intolerant grass/plants with an herbicide by mistake, you will mostly have to wait and see what happens since result will vary depending on the rate used and overall health of the desirable plants.  You may also try contacting Nufarm for further information, they can be reached at 800-345-3330.

Q
What mixture of Nufarm Polaris Herbicide should I use around a septic drain system where tall grass is growing?
A

For most grassy weeds, you will use 2-3 pints per acre of Nufarm Polaris Herbicide, and you may need to add a surfactant to your mixture. We are unable to give more specific dilution rates without knowing exactly what plants you need to control. You can consult the product label for complete rates and application instructions, or you may call us at 866-581-7378 for further assistance. You should not apply Polaris in areas where it would drain into public waters.
