Managing weeds in cereal crops
Wild oats and rye-grass
Reliable control of spring grass weeds like wild oats and rye-grass is critical to protect yield in your cereal crop. Just five wild oat or eight rye-grass plants/m² can cause a significant yield loss worth around £60/ha.
These weeds are also becoming more difficult to control in some places due to enhanced metabolism and target site resistance to some herbicides.
Growers can benefit from AXIAL’s unique DEN chemistry with unique mode of action as it is not affected in the same way as ‘fops’ (e.g. fenoxaprop or clodinafop) by resistance and has demonstrated superior control compared to sulfonylureas.
