Minimise risk to maximise the potential of your cereal crop this season

Adaptive Disease Management

Planning a strategy that targets disease preventatively is at the core of any fungicide programme. Disease can be gaining a foothold even before symptoms are visible which is why it is so important to protect against disease instead of relying on curativity which often isn’t available.

Roughly three quarters of wheat yield comes from the top three leaves. In recent seasons where early-season fungicides have been cut back it has been difficult to regain control later in the season.

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.
