New label recommendation

Many arable farmers face a continuing battle to control black-grass on their farms.

To help pre-emergence residuals, they are also employing a number of cultural control strategies – delayed drilling, stale seedbeds, targeted ploughing and competitive varieties.

Some of these farms have moved to a more balanced cropping regime featuring spring crops. And Avadex Excel 15G (tri-allate) now has a new label recommendation for use in spring wheat.

Kuldip Mudhar, development manager for Gowan’s UK and Ireland business, says it already has a label recommendation for winter wheat and there is also an extension of authorisation for minor use in place for spring linseed, miscanthus and canary grass.

The product will also control meadow-grasses and give some useful control of broad-leaved weeds including speedwell, red dead-nettle, forget-me-not, poppy, mayweed, cleavers, pansy, chickweed and charlock, according to Mr Mudhar.

Tri-allate tips: autumn and spring

  • Calibrate applicator which should include a patternation test before use
  • Apply pre-emergence of weeds and crop
  • Apply as part of a herbicide programme
  • In the case of Avadex Excel, apply at the recommended rate of 15kg per hectare to a moist, consolidated seed bed
  • Make sure drilling depth is correct – 4cm for wheat
  • Regularly check applicator pipe work and deflector plates. Ensure deflector plates are clean and at the right angle to maintain an even spread pattern across the boom
