The use of liquid triallate has been approved in spring linseed crops.
Growers can now apply Avadex Factor (450 g/L triallate) as a pre-emergence herbicide to target black-grass, brome, rye-grass and wild-oats.
Hannah Foxall, agronomist, Premium Crops, says: “We know the ability to control black-grass is greatly influenced by how soon after drilling pre-ems are applied. The new EAMU for Avadex Factor will mean growers can apply this residual herbicide more easily and at a reduced cost without having to employ a contractor.
"Avadex Factor can also be tank mixed with other herbicides such as Callisto (mesotrione), which will add to broad-leaved weed control including weeds such as charlock and runch, which are difficult to control in oilseed rape.”
