Can AXIAL Pro be mixed with SU’s and fluroxypyr for use on winter wheat?

Yes, but ensure that the rate of AXIAL Pro is the full rate for the target weed, i.e., wild oats = 0.82 l/ha. For the chemical to be taken up, the weeds must be actively growing.

Does AXIAL Pro have any activity on volunteer maize and millet in spring barley?

Now that CALARIS has gone, which is the best Syngenta mixture partner for CALLISTO if broad-leaved weeds are an issue?

Would suggest a robust mix would be 0.75-1.0 l/ha CALLISTO + 0.02 kg/ha PEAK for good general broad-leaved weed control. If grass weeds present, then suggest 0.125 l/ha MILAGRO 240OD in mix with 0.75 l/ha CALLISTO. Preferably apply at or before the 4 true leaf stage of the crop for optimum weed control.

Want to use a robust fungicide mix at T2 in winter wheat as rust just keeps coming, what do Syngenta suggest as a dose rate for ELATUS Era?

Spring barley requiring PGR’s, what does Syngenta suggest?

Can 2 SU’s be applied to a crop of maize, i.e., MILAGRO fb PEAK?
