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
