May 15, 2014 - Growers in Western Canada have a new option to control grass weeds in their winter wheat, due to the label expansion of Axial herbicide.
Axial's active ingredient, pinoxaden (Group 1), is absorbed by the leaves and is translocated to the growing points of grassy leaves and stems, providing thorough coverage of the plants.
Axial offers a wide window of application of both crop and weed stage. Axial can be applied to winter wheat as early as the 1-leaf stage and as late as the flag leaf stage; it can be applied to grass weeds beginning at the 1-leaf stage through to 6-leaf, prior to the fourth tiller stage.
