AXIAL XTREME Herbicide is a systemic, post-emergence herbicide for the selective control of kochia, cleavers, wild oats, green foxtail, yellow foxtail, barnyard grass, volunteer oats, volunteer canary seed and proso millet and suppression of wild buckwheat and stork‟s bill in spring wheat and barley in the prairie provinces and the Interior of British Columbia.
AXIAL XTREME Herbicide is absorbed by the leaves and is rapidly translocated to the growing points of leaves and stems, affecting both exposed and underground plant tissue. Thorough coverage of the plants is essential for consistent control. Actively growing susceptible grasses stop growing within 48 hours of treatment. Depending on species, growing conditions and crop competition, leaves and growing points turn yellow within one to three weeks after application. Further colour changes and loss of vigour will be observed, followed by a browning and control three to five weeks after application.
AXIAL XTREME Herbicide can be tank-mixed with a range of broadleaf herbicides to provide a broader spectrum of weed control in spring wheat and barley. See section entitled “TANK MIXES WITH BROADLEAF WEED HERBICIDES AND FUNGICIDES” and refer to the appropriate tank mix section.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
CROPS: spring wheat and barley
AXIAL XTREME Herbicide can be used on all varieties of spring wheat and barley.
One application per year is permitted.
Do not apply by air.
Observe a minimum interval to harvest of 60 days after treatment for grain and straw and of 30 days after treatment for hay. Observe a minimum of 7 days before grazing livestock on crops treated with AXIAL XTREME Herbicide.
Do not apply on any crop other than spring wheat or barley, as crop damage will result. Do not allow spray to drift to adjacent fields seeded to crops other than spring wheat or barley. Do not treat spring wheat or barley under-seeded to forages. Do not apply AXIAL XTREME Herbicide on highly sensitive crops such as: tame oats, proso millet, red millet, crown millet or canary seed.
Field sprayer application: DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) coarse classification. Boom height must be 60 cm or less above the crop or ground.
For application to rights-of-way, buffer zones for protection of sensitive terrestrial habitats are not required; however, the best available application strategies which minimize off-site drift, including meteorological conditions (e.g., wind direction, low wind speed) and spray equipment (e.g., coarse droplet sizes, minimizing height above canopy), should be used. Applicators must, however, observe the specified buffer zones for protection of sensitive aquatic habitats.
ROTATIONAL CROP INFORMATION
Fields previously treated with AXIAL XTREME can be seeded the following year to barley, canola, flax, forage grasses, lentils, mustard, oats, peas, rye or wheat or fields can be summerfallowed.
RATE OF USE AND TIMING OF APPLICATION
Apply the recommended rate of AXIAL XTREME Herbicide in 50 L to 100 L of water per hectare. When tank-mixing AXIAL XTREME Herbicide with a tank-mix partner, ensure you read the tankmix partner label for minimum water recommendations.
NOTES: Do not tank mix with any other adjuvants, chemical additives, pesticides or fertilizers unless recommended on this label.
For optimum results, apply AXIAL XTREME Herbicide to actively growing weeds. An early application will maximize crop yields by reducing weed competition. Weeds emerging after application of AXIAL XTREME Herbicide will not be controlled.
Weed control following application of AXIAL XTREME Herbicide alone, or in combination with broadleaf weed herbicides, can be reduced or delayed under stress conditions such as drought, heat, insufficient fertility, flooding or prolonged cool temperatures. Grass escapes or re-tillering may occur if application is made during prolonged stress conditions. Optimum weed control will be obtained if application of AXIAL XTREME Herbicide is delayed until the stress conditions have ended and weeds are once again actively growing.
AXIAL XTREME Herbicide alone can be used one hour before rainfall.
Do not apply to crop that is stressed by conditions such as frost, low fertility, drought, flooding, disease or insect damage as crop injury may result.
1. Clean spray tank and half fill with clean water. Start agitation or bypass system.
2. If a broadleaf herbicide or fungicide is to be used, add the product FIRST prior to adding AXIAL XTREME Herbicide and agitate for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add correct amount of AXIAL XTREME Herbicide.
4. Agitate for 2-3 minutes before adding remainder of water and then maintain constant agitation.
5. After any break in spraying operations, agitate thoroughly before spraying again.
6. Use the spray suspension as soon as it is prepared.
7. Follow sprayer clean-up directions.
1. Water Volume: 50 to 100 litres per hectare.
2. Spray Nozzles: 80 or 110 flat fan nozzles are recommended for optimal spray coverage. Use 50 mesh nozzle screens. Do not use flood type nozzles, controlled droplet application equipment, spray foils or hollow cone nozzles.
3. Pressure: 275 - 310 kPa.
4. Apply uniformly at 6 - 8 km/hr and avoid overlapping. Shut off spray boom while starting, turning, slowing or stopping to avoid potential crop injury from an over application.
