Its only 50g/L of pinoxaden compared to the regular 100 g/L of Axial 100 EC.
Yes, but the g/ac works out to the same.

Planning on Axial Extreme + Curtail M on some barley ground if the rain ever quits.

I also tried pricing it as Momentum (CPS) + MCPA + Axial 100(or Axial BIA). It was a bit cheaper ($1/ac) but local CPS is sold out of Momentum and can't get any more.

We have been using momentum plus mcpa for a couple years now and it works great. We usually mix it with axial or Everest.

This reminds me of a side note I learned last year. I had a field of barley that appeared to be clean with no wild oats. We sprayed the field with broadleaf spray (Stellar) and the whole time spraying I noticed more and more wild oats. 5 days later we sprayed just Axial 100EC on 60 acres of the field. I phoned the Syngenta rep to talk about timing/staging and explained the situation. She explained to me that if you spray Axial on its own with no other chemical in the tank you can safely spray 60 ac/case with full control. She told me that any other chemical mixed with Axial is antagonistic and reduces the control making it 40 ac/case.
Interesting anyway because Axial is not cheap. At swathing time you could see the line where we sprayed Axial and where we didn't = Full control. That is 50% more acres covered for the same cost but its an entirely separate pass.

That is interesting. I usually spray it at 50-55 acres rate with infinity if not a lot of wild oats and seems to work very good even then as well.

Oops. I forgot about the adjuvant being part of the mix. :eek:

You guys must have different stuff than we have in the States. I only use Axial XL. It is all I can get. Labled at 40 acres per case. I spray it at 60 acres per case. Then I add bromac with it. Seems to make the bromac work much better. Axial XL has a great surfactant in it. Wish they would say what it is. I have never found an oat after spraying it at this rate. I spray the solution at 10gpa. Also does good on the Russian Thistle and kochia.

Since we're talking about the different flavours of Axial...

The original Axial (also known as Axial 100EC) + Adigor adjuvant contained 100g/L pinoxaden.

Axial BIA is the same but has the adigor premixed in which dilutes it down to 50 g/L pinoxaden.

Axial Xtreme also contains 50g/L pinoxaden but adds in 87.5g/L fluroxypyr.

There is also Axial iPak which is Axial and Infinity.

All of these contain 24g/ac of pinoxaden (at the recommended rate). Of course, the Axial Xtreme and Axial iPak also add in their respective actives as well...

I was just talking to my retailer on Saturday and I told him that it would be much simpler to outlaw all these trade names. Companies can only use the name of the active and the g/L. He agreed that it would make it much simpler to follow!
