Late chemical options for wheat

Wheat is at 5 leaf and 2 tillers currently, with some later emergence at 2 leaf. Agrologist recons "lots" of wild oats and green foxtail, a bit of volunteer canola and that I should hit it with axial + 2,4 D ester as soon as possible. I'm not back from work for another 2 weeks so pretty sure it will be too advanced by then, are there any options for late applications or would I have to take the hit on a potential reduction in yield / dockage and just get it cleaned up with desiccant / post harvest application? I don't see a net cost benefit of having someone come in to do it with what they're recommending, be looking at $30 / acre so would need at least a 6 bu bump to be worth while

Hey Kramer, just hire a local retailer to put the chemical on if you cant. It will only cost you 7-8 dollars per acre and than at least your field is clean. Its a no brainer, the last thing you want to do is add more wild oats to the fields weed bank, you ll be fighting them forever! I would pick up the phone right now!Hope your wheat crop is ok. Think of the long term benefit OF spraying instead of the short term cost.

Get it sprayed now. By the time you factor in the yield loss this year and the mess you’ll have to deal with for the next five years from the seed bank it will leave you 30 bucks will seem cheap. I’d maybe not go with 24d thou. It can be hard on more mature crops.

Or cut it for green feed. Would likely make more money that way.

Did a lot of flag leaf wheat with infinity and axial, crops look good too.

The more seriously you take things, the harder the rules become.

If it is broken, fix it. If it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

My wheat was flagging and I sprayed axial and stellar. Didn’t appear it hurt the wheat any. Even oats were just about as advanced and sprayed with stellar.

Sprayed wheat field really late last year that had a wind oat infestation with axial. Worked out good.

Your not looking very far into the future if you think not spraying will pay. Get it sprayed.
